Results: hey, look at that! Samsung Cloud does have some customers...
Nowadays, there are tons of cloud providers out there, and some manufacturers also offer the service to their loyal users. Samsung, for example, offers anyone with a Samsung Account 15 GB of cloud storage for free, with two tiers to upgrade to — 50 GB for $1 monthly, or 200 GB for $3 per month. But there are tons of other cloud services out there that have been around for longer and offer integration with more 3rd party apps. Dropbox,, Drive, OneDrive often appear as file import options on a ton of apps out there.

With Google Drive and Google Photos out there, and with every Samsung user getting 100 GB of Microsoft OneDrive storage for free — does one really need to drop money on Samsung's exclusive cloud? We decided to ask you... turns out, some people do choose to go that route. But, as expected, others have their cloud needs covered by services with a bit more 3rd party integration potential.

Do or would you pay for Samsung Cloud storage?

Nope, I've got my cloud needs covered by something else
No, I don't do cloud storage

I would use it more if AT&T didn't gimp it in their carrier "branded" and prevent users from adding more samsung cloud storage to their accounts

Google Drive and Google Photos are the best for me! 1000Gb option paid once per year! Second option is Microsoft OneDrive but the free option ;)

They have to pay me to have my personal data. Not the other way

I feel you man, but the free option of Google Drive is good enough for me, so not paying any dime for cloud storage.

Who wants all his data, docs and photos to be used by Google? LOL I preffer Samsung to have my data, than Google. Am I dumb? If Samsung make Note with Tizen , I will be the first to buy it. No matter of the price.

Google was the underdog, now it is just too big, Shifting to Samsung cloud, just for the sake of moving away from the Google monopoly.
