The results from the poll that we posted a few days ago are in, and they are pretty clear: the biggest memory consumers are the applications and games. 41.99% of you have said this is the content type that takes up most of the space on their phones and tablets. Music is also a pretty storage-hungry category, so it's not a big surprise that it takes the second place with 27.68%. Those multi-gigabyte song libraries just have to come with us no matter where we go! Video comes in third with 19.86%, and finally we have pictures with 9.53% closing the top four.
The two other categories we had - 'Documents' and 'Books and magazines' are far behind, indicating that digital magazines and interactive books haven't penetrated the mobile space in a big way yet.
What takes the most space on your phone/tablet's memory?
Apps and games
Books and magazines
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.
