According to our readers, this is the most popular amount of memory for smartphones.

What do you need to know

  • We asked our readers how much storage their current smartphone holds.
  • Over 30% say they have 128GB of storage and then 256GB.
  • Fewer users have microSD cards, despite the small number of votes for more storage.

As smartphones improve, manufacturers offer larger amounts of memory, especially for flagships. Much of this has to do with the unfortunate fact that companies are removing microSD card slots as they push buyers to buy more storage.

With that in mind, we wanted to know how much storage our readers have in their current smartphones. Surprisingly, the most popular option was 128GB without a microSD card slot, which is usually the minimum amount of storage offered in many of the best Android phones.

In second place was 256GB, followed by users with 128GB and a microSD card, and then a larger 512GB variant. The microSD card options mostly received the least votes.

Many Twitter readers say that 128 GB is enough for them, and some say that they have chosen Google One cloud storage, which helps to partially cope with the load. The rise of music streaming apps and video services is likely playing a role as well. However, as some of our readers have noticed, not everyone can get by with just 128GB of onboard storage.
