    64GB for 350$, I call that a very good bargain. For example, look at other phones iphones, crapsung and shit even 32gb versions are damn high, and don't even mention 64s.

    Reason number one There's no expandable storage!
    50 bucks more is also a steal so uh..... Duh?

    If you are already spending $300 for a phone, why not throw in an extra $50 for 4x the storage. I don't get reliable service in my area so cloud storage is not reliable yet. Plus, many cloud storage companies charge money (Google Drive is pretty good and free, but only 15GB). All in all it just makes more sense in my opinion.

    In countries like Canada data is actually expensive. I only got 2gb, and I already pay $60. If i streamed music/video my data would run out in a couple days.. then i'll get charged a shitload.

    It may depend of people, but actual phone with a SD card of 32 GB is almost full.
    In fact, I don't understand how a high phone nowdays still only have 16 GB as standard.

    Why 64 is more popular?? I'd say that asking the question is answering it

    not everyone has unlimited data so streaming can be out of the question, also 16 gigs is pathetic having a rather large app collection takes up all the room very quickly leaving music storage out of the question (aside from SD card support which the OPO does not have)

    I think Carl called it unpopular simply because most phones don't offer it, hence its not popular.

    The question should be why not. I take a lot of pictures and videos of my kids and while I do use drop box its nice not having to delete them just to take some more or fear running out of space while using it.

    If you play games by GameLoft, the files are anywhere from 5GB to 20GB for ONE game. I also download/torrent stuff and record lots of videos/pictures. Cloud services are good if not for lack of LTE in certain places and data caps.

    Thank you for your opinion, maybe just don't comment next time unless you have something helpful to contribute. If this is pointless for you personally, then why comment? It's not pointless to me, or I wouldn't have posted it.

    Carl's post [excerpt]: "Also, 64GB memory is also a bit hard to get a hold of. 64GB tends not to be a very popular capacity, and most manufacturers do not order a lot of 64GB memory. Therefore, supply is relatively unstable."
    It is actually hard to get from manufacturers, not just "unpopular" (although I can assume the reason it is hard to get is because it is unpopular, so manufacturers don't produce something there is little demand for. Hence, my point that we could potentially get the phone sooner if we opted for 16 GB (since they could potentially make more of that type faster).

    Playing a game of that size on a phone baffles me: re-playing Legend of Zelda OoT on N.64 or Titanfall/anything on Steam on my PC both sound like better ideas than trying to play on an entirely touch-interface game with a small screen. I've tried them, I don't see the appeal at all - this is my perspective.

    Seems like a solution would be to include a micro SD card slot. gives the opportunity for more storage to those who want it, makes the phone more flexible. I've got a few micro SDs around with movies and music in case I need some offline media for a long flight or something of that nature. USB OTG works but its not as convenient.
