  3. No, don't need the extra storage

    And you're foolish if you think that security of something locally is tougher to breach than something in a remote location. The cloud phobia is unfounded. In fact, anyone who steals or finds your phone can breach your local security; it is much more difficult to breach digital security. Somebody would have to guess your password, unless you're insinuating that the cloud providers are breaching their own privacy agreements and having individual employees look at what you have in your storage. In which case, again, it's unfounded cloud phobia.

    YOU are not talking about corruption. But the possibility of disk error and corruption - contrasted with the redundancy of cloud storage - is as much a part of the debate between cloud and local storage as is some fanatical view of "security."

    H264 2160p30 is 10MB/S, that is about 1 and a quarter hours of video for 64 and double for 128

    Do you have a source for these numbers? If true, even the 16 GB version might be good for about 15 minutes of 4K video (excluding other memory hogs). - OK for experimenting, but not for serious use.

    I prefer having a 512GB phone, 128 is to little, heck even 64GB is a hassle to store stuff in #NEVERSETTLE

    Your theoretical arguments are meaningless. Bottom line; If YOU want to give your data an umbilical cord to limitless strangers, then have at it. Most people have more common sense than that. You cannot convince me that cloud storage is safe, because it isn't. Imagine that.

    Only to someone who is blind. You keep trying to muddy the waters by talking about unrelated things. If you want to take the high risk of using cloud storage, then by all means do. It has no effect over my datas local security. Your cloud storage is very vulnerable to cyberattack. My local storage has no such issue. Businesses that store on the cloud also face legal liability. My local storage has no such issue. There is no cloud standardization. My local storage has no such issue. It seems your data isn't the only thing on the cloud, so is your dream of it being secure.

    i changed my mind. i would not buy a 128GB version for $400 because i just wouldn't need that much space. 64GB is plenty for me as i don't watch movies, don't watch porn, and don't download music in FLAC.

    64 GB is plenty enough for me. 128 GB might be more useful for tablets to store watch videos.

    I think pricing for 128GB would be an important factor. Imagine IPhone selling a 128GB, probably it will be the same price as the Macbook.

    Actually, I can't convince you that cloud storage is safe because you're too wrapped up in your own paranoid fantasy. But the relevant part is, no phone is about to launch with 128 GB of on boars storage. So in your case, you're free to spend $300 extra and get a phone with an SD slot.

    A 128GB version would be more aimed at people who consume a lot of media or produce a lot of media with their phone, considering the one can shoot RAW photos (which I believe are 39MB each at 13MP) and 4K (10MB/second) or quarter realtime videos (Also about 10MB/second) or watch HD movies (2.5MB/second), If you don't do this then the 64GB version would be fine for you, maybe even the 16GB

    I think OTG and SD cards are quite old fashion. From somone who made the mistake of only getting a 64gb IPAD. I would love a phone with 128gb. In Fact 256GB seems more in line these days.

    For what? For porn? At the moment I don't think there is need for this...but I see many people obsessed with having a lot of space.

    64G should be enough. At some point of time or storage, it's good to do some cleansing.

    I know this is not exactly matching the theme but... I'd love an OPO with an storage of 32 GB. Would you?

    I don't see the use behind a 128GB storage. I am a music fan as well but really 128GB? Addicted? use
