Cool Did you buy the 16GB or 32GB model?

Just an informal post asking if people bought the 16GB version or the 32GB version?

I have the 16GB, which is partitioned into two 8GB areas... I'm tempted to get the 32GB so one can have larger partitions, but which version do you have and why?

Thanks!

I bought the 16gb. I can add my own extra memory with SD much cheaper.

Ditto; bought my wife the 16GB model and added/swapped the micro SD card (advantage over HTC One) and all is well. If needed, can always buy a larger micro-SD card and migrate the data.

I started out with the black 16GB version but ran out of space before installing all of my old apps from my Atrix 4G. Exchanged it for the 32GB and am very happy. I do have a 32GB SD card as well. (My wife has the 32GB). I have some big games that are over 1GB in size which can't be moved to SD card. Also, everything by default is saved to internal memory. (Except pictures/video since there is a setting in the camera to choose where to save.)

I also started out with the 16GB version and swapped it for the 32GB version when they came out a few weeks later. I have a 64GB SD card in mine as well.

I have the 16gig version I have 64 gig class 10 SD. I don't have that many extremely large apps but I like having my whole library of music on my phone and a lot of my important files. If you don't play too many big games 16gig should be fine. If you are willing to root you can transfer all big apps to SD but it has to be class 10.

I just got the 32GB upgrade. They told me "$50 more" when I ordered it, but the actual cost was $70 more. That didn't stop me; the extra space WILL come in handy.

I love how my apps instantly downloaded to the phone once the SIM was migrated. Pity the game save values didn't carry over, but I didn't have to spend 15 minutes re-setting regional and other settings. Yay!

After wrecking my Razr, via a secondary font change in FontChanger, I'm not rooting anymore. From what I can tell of the S4, most of the tweaks I had working for over a year aren't needed anymore. Only firewall and ad blocking software would be nice...
