    I see these kind of topics in the iPhone forum but not a lot in the Android forums. How much space do you have left on your phone? Windows, Blackberry, Android? I've used about half on my 64gb OPO. A big weight was lifted off my shoulders when I got the OnePlus because my old iPhone was only 16gb which was a pita because I always had to delete crap off my phone because I couldn't take a picture. Anyway, enough about me. What about you guys?

    Have a Note 3 (32GB + 32GB)

    15GB remaining in total. I put all important files on the phone's memory but more disposable stuff like music and video clips on the SD card.

    Still have 50GB of dropbox space that Samsung gave me when I bought the S3.

    16GB Nexus 5

    I don't use much storage because I:

    -stream all my music
    -don't watch movies or play games on my phone
    -use a tasker script that automatically uploads any pictures taken to DropBox and GDrive and then deletes them from the phone

    HTC One (32 GB)
    25 GB avail
    3.2 GB left

    Xiaomi Mi 3 (16 GB)
    12 GB avail
    2.3 GB left

    I think 16 GB can be quite livable for me.

    - Videos esp in HD or higher and graphic intensive games are the main culprits to storage space.

    I generally put my videos in a separate USB drive because my TV can read it and it looks better on a bigger screen and I won't get sleepy watching from a small screen. When I do download videos via TubeMate, usually in 360p and then I delete them later. I only keep music videos and short vids in HD.

    My HTC One has all my pix and music library with 3 GB left but I can easily free up another 7-8 GB by deleting four 720p movies. Including all my music, photos, and personal videos, I generally only need 16-20 GB (AVAIL) at most. I can live without many videos and games. And I don't really game. Tried Shadow Fight 2 yesterday and never got into it. I have maybe 40-50 apps at most with maybe 7 games. And I don't really need to carry all my music and photos everywhere I go.

    Memory space has now become a lesser worry once you have other storage backups.

    I have a Xperia Z1 with about just over 3GB of space left. Will be the last 16GB phone i ever buy despite fooling myself into believing i'd be okay with a memory card.

    I think e-books can be a great alternative than movies/videos and games. Wattpad has been a huge battery and memory space saver for me just by reading alot of stories. I think it is better to stream videos. Most cases, alot will just take up so much space with very little replay value. Games are done better in short spurts to prevent killing battery faster. But books take up very little space, can entertain you much longer, and drains battery slower.

    If you only have a phone that offers 16 GB or less, books and articles saved for offline are great entertainment. I love Wattpad & Pocket.

    32GB Nexus 5. I take heavy advantage of online services and don't store much on my phone at all. Back when I had my old HTC One (M7) I was constantly wiping the data and flashing ROMs so it seems to of became a habit to store the bare minimum on the physical device and rely on the cloud services. Although I won't be flashing too many ROMs on my Nexus 5, especially with Lollipop, it's nice to not have too much "digital clutter" on my device. If only I could do that with my current living space. :mad:
