    Do I really need one, since I always dumped most of my photos on my desktop, sometimes I string
    on cloud... hmmm, just wondering if I need that memory space.

    It is up to you and your needs. Personally I have as much storage as possible just to be future proof.

    No need for memory card... My suggestion is that a 64gb internal memory phone is enough for normal no need for an extra memory card.

    I added one, to my new phone. Made do with 32gb, total, in my old one.
    I figured that with 64gb in the phone that has 20gb already used by the system, I'm gonna add it.

    Yes you need a memory card if you have installed a lot of apps. What I was saying is that If you a user who uses light apps like social media and basic apps you won't need an memory card.

    Wasn't contradicting you, pingpongs, I was just amazed at the vast increase in system requirements in Android 8 from Android 6. In actuality, I'm a minimalist, when it comes to apps, preferring browser versions over a downloaded app.
    I do store my music and epub files on my MSD card, along with all my photos.

    Social media are light? CPU wise, sure, but they can cache a lot of data.

    Anyway it's not a so simple. People who keep media on the device rather than relying on some corporate server and a network connection can easily use tens of GB or more. Someone who travels may store a lot of offline maps. If someone thinks they need more space I would take their word for it.

    (My personal minimum at the moment is 64GB + SD or 128 GB without. And I am currently using more than 64GB, and have no large games and do not record videos).

  8. Since you are connecting to your desktop …
    What is your maximum?
    How much are you currently using?

    For me … Windows 10 reports ...
    Internal … 29.4 of 47.1 available
    SD Card … 108 of 118 available

    For what the SD card costs it is handy to have it available if it is needed.

    Using around 42% of my phone, for windows it is like default, way around the limits.
    I do not do much apps for microsoft either, I mostly use it from time to time as an arcade machine, but mostly use it as a camera.

    I have about 400 apps, 31 gigs out of 64. Plus I have a 32 gig memory card. Which is currently empty. I prefer to have apps on phone for speed. Get a memory card for video, Z2 does 4k video, eats memory fast but quality is awesome.
  11. Another point ... I need to get the socket cleaned ... I cannot plug into my desktop currently.

    With all that extra space on the SD card I will just make a copy of everything in internal storage to a folder on the SD card.

    X-plore app in store. Makes it easy for PC to connect to phone over Wi-Fi. X-plore cane make a WiFi server your PC can connect to. Until you clean plug, I use tooth brush for cleaning. By a cheap one just for that.
