    32GB

    Can get away with 16GB but that is when you start moving apps to sd and so on after a couple of months...

    why is is most people buy hard drive and ram more than anything else for their PC/phone

    thats why you need a slot to upgrade it when you need to... hint hint IOS people.......

    I have 16GB and I'd prefer at least 32.

    I think 32Gb would be my sweet spot. 16Gb is doable but more would be better.

    I need about 64GB at least. I don't want movies on my phone, but my apps and music takes up most of the space.
