    OK all of us have been fallowing this phone skipping other great phones(Rezound,Razr)and then bam we are hit with official news saying 16gb of storage.Now we need to ask our self's is this phone worth it? if the razr or rezound had 16gb of internal memory we would all point and laugh.There has been no official price but we are all assuming $299.99 ON A TWO YEAR CONTRACT wtf! I have posted that i would be retard for paying that but i just found out im getting lots of credit from verizon and other discounts so i will be getting this phone for $150.00 so im going to deal with the 16gb

    So with all that said if you are still getting this how are you going to manage your 16gb?

    this is what im going to do

    1.Netflix no more videos saved to SD

    2.Cloud for Music

    3.? not sure what im going to do with my PS1 games there like a gig each play one game at a time.also PS1 app may not work at launch darn menu button.

    No idea what I would do! Not really going to worry about it until the Nexus comes out and I truley have to make a decision. I REALLY want this phone but things are starting to rub me the wrong way! Makes me sad because I have been sitting on an up grade for ~ 10 months because nothing has peaked my interest until the Nexus! I was hoping to pass my TBolt on to my daughter and snatch up the Nexus but now I am debating on grabbing her a cheaper phone and hold out until next year! I am all twisted right now!

    My answer is simple, if it only has 16GB then I won't get one.

    Not getting this phone. Just got a RAZR. But I'd suggest people look at Dropbox -- up to 10 GBs of free cloud storage (with many useful features that have nothing to do with phones per se -- synching files across multiple computers, etc.).

    I have a 160GB iPod for music, plus 20,000 songs in Google's Cloud - with 4G the need to store videos is a thing of the past, 16 or 32GB - I am ready :)

    Well looks like I'll be using clounds as well as a mini USB dongle if that proves to work. Still getting this phone no matter what. I've been waiting to long not to.

    I wouldn't, 16 gigs with no sd card is a deal breaker for sure.

    Yes there is cloud based options but I wouldn't want to rely on it.

    That is simply not enough room.

    That's kind of frustrating to hear as I've been sitting on a relatively weak music collection but planned to make quite a few purchases when I get a new phone to have a wide variety for all the driving I do lately (so don't want to rely on streaming) so having only 16gb for music AND all the other stuff on the phone would be tight.

    Sad part is, if the 16gb is true, you are going to be totally dependent on an internet connection. Say what you want but that just blows. Not to mention anyone on a tiered plan that's not even an option. Hell I usually have a gig worth of roms on card for when I feel like a new phone. Test driving the Rezound and if I like it, that's going to be my new phone. I just want the speculation and rumors to end so I can make up my mind already lol.

    Well I was trying to hold out, but I couldn't justify the wait considering the good reviews the Rezound got. Plus I was able to play with it already in store.

    I am now happy i got the Rezound, especially if I new hear old 16 gigs of memory. Even my Droid 1 had more. I understand there is the google cloud, but people shouldn't be forced into it by google limiting memory. Pretty sad considering the cost of a decent 16-32 gig card these days. As long as I can keep my Rezound from wasting away on its battery too quick, I'll know I made the right decision.
