Apps and games: biggest memory consumers
0. phoneArena 08 Feb 2013, 03:15 posted on
Have you ever wondered what people use their mobile devices' memory for the most? Where do all those gigabytes go? Nowadays it's easy to purchase a new phone or tablet with 16, 32 or even 64 gigabytes of storage and end up no free space after just a few days of use...

I vote pictures, it cost 60% of my memory...
And why they vote apps? Facebook and Twitter only cost less than 1gb right? No?

I've got like 12.8 gigs of Apps and Games on my Note 2 so definitely the third item.

Developers really really need to listen up and allow their games to install their data folders on sd cards rather than internal memory. My 16gb tablet can hold only a few of the large games as some can be up to 3gb in size,while the 64gb sd card in it is of no use for games and apps.
App devs really need to give users a choice of internal or external memory for game data folders. Gameloft is massively guilty of this

Come on, Phonearena. Memory != Storage. You should know this.

I have over 2800 songs on my phone. That is over 11GB.
