There's been plenty of times where I'm not in coverage to receive data connection or access to wifi.
I think 32gb is the sweet spot if there's no sd card slot on the phone. But that's just my imo. I know some people who get on fine with their 8gb Nexus 4's :-O
You are like me, I also like to keep stuff on my phone. I think for me that 16gb will be enough since I will use the phone storage pretty much only phone stuff. Even if I have lost of data I don't always like using the could and I have over 60gb of music I want to keep.
You should get a OTG cable so you can use a usb stick and store all your music and more. I only hope that the N5 will not have the same "problem as the N4 (I think) where you need to have it plugged in to a power source. In that case get a Y OTG cable. Connect to you phone, connect the usb stick and a small portable usb power will do the trick.
