How much storage memory do you actually have in your phone?

There has been a brouhaha lately about the troubling trend of unibody smartphone designs that find no place for a microSD card slot for expanding the memory that the manufacturers decided to embed in there. That is why we wanted to ask you, dear readers, how much memory do you actually carry in your phone - we mean the internal storage amount that came with your handset, plus an eventual memory card placed in there...

I got 24 gigs. I dont care much, as I just plug in my flash drive to access files from my 64gig thumb drive.

had 32gb sgs2 16gb + 16gb sd card. now i'm on the gnex and only has 16gb. kind of difficult to cut my storage in half but 16 is the bare minimum i require now. just have to keep fewer back ups and roms in storage

Although the higher capacity the better, using an external SD card is not necessary about the capacity but rather about the security of information in terms of surviving accidental losses. The internal SD card is MUCH more prone to losing the information as it’s part of the system. System upgrades / restores may very well format the internal SD and that means losing EVERYTHING. If nandroid or Titanium backups were part of the lost information, it may be quite painful.
As such I'm highly against unibody phones such as iPhone or even some Android phones offering cloud storage as alternatives - it just doesn't work.

One of the reasons why I didnt run any custom ROMs when I was testing out the G Nex. It was recommended to back up....everything. I never had to do that on my previous Android phones....they all had an sd card.

I think you can use 64GB now. Some ppl used one on a RAZR and Bionic.

Why won't they stuff more memories into phones? Are there some sort of limitations?

Added a 32GB microSD card, plus whatever my Moto DX came with.

32gb internal is more than enough for my OneX. Used around 18gbs. Enough for some HD games, word and excel docs, power points and songs i like the most. I have a separate ipod nano/shuffle for music, and separate iPad/laptop for movies. So yeah. Almost all if not all the people who says they need 64+gbs of memory are just trying to sound cool if not cheapstakes who can't buy separate proper devices. Oh the world we live in nowadays.

I have a 3 TB external HDD connected to my phone; I use to have just 2 TB but I felt like in the year 1918...
Now, if phone manufacturers don't provide me with a gazillion exabyts, I will go back to my Nokia 1100.

Wait, Is this article + poll trying to justify the iPhone's lack of expansion?
Good one, almost slid it by me.

Please, Please keep droids with removable batteries and acessable sd slots the norm. I have 40+\-, use 16-24. Got a deal on a 32gb card. Figured apple charges $150 for that upgrade so I might as well have it as part of my ploy to convince apple owners to abandon ship.
