    My preference would be 64GB + Expandable Storage ! Because 128GB + Expandable Storage would probably cost both my kidneys !!!

    BTW, congratulations @CasperTFG

    I currently have a Galaxy S4 (16GB + external storage) but can't use an SD because it screws with the phone (keeps restarting, gets sluggish, doesn't load app info, etc, probably a bad SD batch, since my sister's and mum's also fail that way) so I ended up with just the 16GB internal memory, which is always leaving me at less than 700Mb free, forcing me to always run cleaning apps to bring it down to manageable levels.

    Now I'm waiting for my new OPT to come in the mail with its huge, hassle-free, 64GB internal memory! I won't be bothered with defective SD cards anymore! So my vote goes to 64GB internal only, as that should be enough for most users (of course I wouldn't complain about 128GB either, but that would bump up the price, and I may end up not using that much anyway).

    The thing that really bugs me with my OPX is that all the apps which I thought would work seemlessly on my 64gb sdcard, only move like 10mb from phone to sd thus making the concept useless. If i dont make sense feel free to ask but overall the sdcard option in the OPX has been an overall letdown!

    @Adam Krisko Form has been filled out and is occupying storage now :) nice touch with the spoiler wow amazing how things have changed so much. Did you know that the theoretical limit I believe for SD storage is 2TB imagine having that in your phone.

    Tricky one to answer, could of done with an extra question like ideal and practical sizes. I'd like more storage if possible, 128gb would be a good jump up from 64gb. It would also be great to have an sd micro card to expand as needed. Like a merging of oneplus two and Oneplus x.

    In that case could have 16 or 64gb plus SD but hey #neversettle right so I say 128gb plus SD card :) ok maybe overkill maybe not, personally realistically I'd be happy with 128GB either way.

    I like the fact that storage exists of one part (however an SD card is nice for storing and watching movies, that takes up internal storage very fast) so 64GB + SD would be it.
    Even though I am doing fine with the 64gb of my oneplus 2.

    I think faster storage should also have been polled as storage speeds as seen on the iPhone 6S and a few others of 400MB/s really make the whole experience much snappier and nicer

    64 GB is the sweet spot, especially when it's reasonably priced.
    I don't use an SD card, but I can see why people like it.

    I'll be happy as long as the OP3 is available with 64 GB and 4/6 GB of RAM. I see no reason for 6 GB on a mobile phone but I think the OP3 will sport as much, I would be happy with 32/4 if that helped keep the cost down. Just forget about the 16 GB variant, you never released that variant of the OP2 and the OPO 16 GB did not sell well.

    More importantly than the amount of storage is its speed, just look at the Xiaomi Mi5 and the Zuk Z2 Pro, it's a great piece of hardware.

    64 GB is a good size for me (I never needed more on my OPO), but having a SD Card slot is always good to store your media and/or backups.

    64GB is ideal for me, though 128GB can be warmly welcomed
    IMO sdcards bottleneck the speed as they are slower than the internal flash storage

    Many OEMs are going for 6gb or even higher RAM (including MS) which would become a std in coming months. For storage, 64 GB is ok even without a SD card slot, at least for me. :p
    However, 128gb would be just enough for most I suppose.:rolleyes:
