This is the most popular storage size for smartphones, according to our readers

What you need to know

  • We asked our readers how much storage their current smartphone holds.
  • More than 30% say they have 128GB of storage followed by 256GB.
  • Fewer users have microSD cards despite low votes for higher storage sizes.

As smartphones improve, manufacturers offer higher storage sizes, particularly for flagships. That’s largely due to the unfortunate fact that companies are removing microSD card slots as they push buyers to purchase higher storage sizes.

With this in mind, we wanted to know how much total storage our readers have in their current smartphones. Surprisingly, the most popular option was 128GB with no microSD card slot, which is usually the minimum storage size offered in many of the best Android phones.

Second to that was 256GB, followed by users with 128GB and a microSD card, and then the larger 512GB option. Options with microSD cards mostly received the lowest votes.

Many readers on Twitter say 128GB is enough for them, with some saying they’ve opted for Google One cloud storage, which helps with some of the burden. The growth of music streaming apps and video services likely plays a role as well. However, not everyone can manage with just 128GB of onboard storage, as some of our readers noted.
