How Much Memory Is Ideal in a Smartphone?

Thanks to constantly declining prices of flash memory, smartphone storage has become cheap. On some devices, it’s possible to rack up over 40GB of space if you couple a now-affordable 32GB microSD card with 8GB of on-board storage. But we wonder: how much space is enough for you? If you’re storing a lot of music, movies, and photos on your device, you might need huge amounts of space. But for the rest of us that have a dozen apps and maybe 100 photos, coming close to the storage limit of our smartphones is just not going to happen. Let us know in the poll below what the ideal amount of space is for you. Naturally, this answer might have been different a couple of years ago, and will definitely be different in the future.
