New smartphone? Yes please. But pay attention to internal memory: it is what really makes the difference, especially with today’s life.

The choice of a new smartphone today is almost the order of the day. A bit like deciding which vegetables to buy for lunch, or whether to have coffee or cappuccino. Nothing more ordinary, in short.

How many GB of space do you need on your smartphone?

Yes, because the smartphone has now become a sort of natural extension of the arms of anyone, from children to 90 year olds, and not a luxury, as instead happened at the beginning of the 2000s (when the concept of the smartphone was still rather unknown to most ).

And if the panorama of smartphone offers is becoming increasingly vast, it is not as difficult as it seems to orient yourself among the hundreds of models on the market, given that consumers sometimes know more about technical characteristics than the producers themselves. What needs to be considered, based on personal needs, is the internal storage space of a phone.

How many gigabytes do we need to manage our daily life?

Whether it is iOS or Android, Apple or Samsung, Oppo or Xiaomi, or any other brand on the market, when we have to choose our new smartphone we must take into account the Gigabytes of storage memory made available by the device. Once upon a time there were 32, 64 and 128 GB phones: the three denominations were the best you could wish for, and when it came to the 128 GB, rolling your eyes was almost obligatory.

The internal storage space of a smartphone today must be at least 128 GB

Because the memory needed to contain operating systems and various applications was more or less the same. Today, however, 128 GB is the minimum storage space required by new smart phones (literal translation of smartphone), given that modern operating systems, or rather their updated versions, already take up a lot of space and more or less a third of the nominal storage space indicated by the supplier on the phone box.

Therefore, 128 GB is the minimum “containment box” necessary for a medium-sized smartphone to work, and it can be suitable for those who use it easily, for the management of daily operations such as instant messaging, banking apps, school, and the like.

For more complicated, or rather complex, operations, such as recording videos, working with high-resolution photographs, and works of this kind, we go from a minimum of 256 GB to the new frontier of storage space of 1 TeraByte, i.e. as many as 1000 Giga, passing through the 512 GB which have become more or less the most common size for new smartphone owners.
