Choosing the amount of storage you need for your phone is more often than not decided by how you use it. You will find yourself asking should I spend more money to get the extra memory and if I get a lower amount will I run out?
Let’s look at the biggest culprits for taking up space on your phone. As you read you will get clear sense of how much space you need.
Everyone takes photos with their smartphones: selfies, food, kids, pets, airplane window shots, sunsets…the list goes on. Because we now always have the ability to take a photo whenever we like we tend to take a LOT. Photos taken with smartphones are improving in quality, which is why you might see them increase in size.
1GB will roughly hold about 256 photos. Here’s a guide to give you an idea of how many photos a phone can store:
- 16GB = 4096 photos
- 32GB = 8192 photos
- 64GB = 16384 photos
Put it this way, if you take 10 photos a day you’ll use up 16GB in about a year.
