How much memory do you really need in a smartphone?

The new LG G6 smartphone features an SD slot and comes with a 64GB SD card (for a combined total of 96GB of internal and expandable memory.

When you’re searching for the ideal smartphone to suit your lifestyle, memory and storage may not seem like the sexiest features to fawn over. But as smartphones begin to take the place of your digital camera, MP3 player, portable gaming console, GPS and so on, memory and storage certainly become features you’ll have to consider seriously before purchasing a new device.

Many flagship smartphones do not come with an SD slot, which then forces users to make some difficult decisions when they run out of internal memory. This is not the case with the LG G6 smartphone which comes with a 64GB SD card.

The most obvious reason to go with a smartphone that offers large and flexible storage options is not only because we’re using more apps than ever, but also that the apps we use are getting bigger. System-level apps like Google Play Services can suck up as much as 500MB all by themselves. The Google app uses around 250MB, and your favourite social media offerings like Snapchat and Facebook Messenger use between 100MB and 200MB. WhatsApp tends to come with an enormous archive of videos, photos and chat histories, while data caches for apps like Chrome, Instagram and Twitter can add hundreds of megabytes after only a few months of use. With the LG G6’s 96GB of storage, this won’t be a problem even for the most active app users.

96GB of memory, incidentally, is also enough storage for 32 000 images, or over 23 000 songs, so you’ll never miss a chance to take advantage of the G6’s dual 13MP rear cameras and wide-angle front camera, while jamming to your favourite music.

Today’s digital natives are no longer mere consumers of media – they’re storytellers and content creators in their own right. They deserve a smartphone that embodies their lifestyle and enables self-expression – and the G6 fits the bill perfectly.
