    I have not even tried that yet. Maybe I should give it a shot.

    (Features like that) Changes the conversation on which is better between a nexus and note 5.

    I am amazed how toned down touchwiz is. I mean I really didn't want to believe it. After installing all my apps I have the same amount of space I have left as I did my nexus 6. I also watched videos about Samsung keeping the features light and allowing people to add more from the Samsung store.

    I still may end up trading up (64 gb model) but we will see.

    I bought mine on launch day and have not done anything to try to conserve space. Currently using approximately 29gb. That's with 149 downloaded apps. I think I should do some cleaning up. [​IMG]

    The 64gb gives you peace of mind with not having to worry about space but I wonder if the extra $100 is worth it. I could probably shave off 5-10 gb easily by getting rid of apps that I never use and deleting pics that I have backed up to cloud & SD card. It was a tough decision between 32gb or spend $100 for 64. I looked at the total amount of storage (internal & external) I used on my Note3. It was close enough to 32gb that I felt safer with a 64. But that included every pic/video I ever took, about 20 backups to MyBackup (which each one takes lots of storage and I only needed one) and over 150 apps. And I barely touched cloud storage with my N3.

    Right now I only use cloud storage for backing up my pics and about 7 apps' data (just to make sure I have important backups if my phone needs a sudden fdr). I also use a dual usb/micro USB flash drive to do periodic backups. But even though I'm using the cloud & flash drive more, I'm not deleting it from my phone. If I had the 32 gb, I would be deleting much more.

    Not sure if this info helps with your decision or not. It is hard to predict how much space you might end up wishing you had. I think I probably could have done okay with having 32gb with little effort though.
