    Ok, so have been thinking about this and have been asked by a few other people why BlackBerry only offers their BB10 devices with 16 GB internal storage only. Is it because we can use expandable storage? Because Samsung does have 32 GB internal storage available and have expandable storage too.

    I think 16 GB is a good starting point - can't really do anything with 8 GB like some Google devices - 32 GB is a great - but BlackBerry gives you the SD route. Because of this, I've never heard anyone complain about "running out of space" with a BlackBerry.

    I have 1.8 gb left in my z30. All my pics and music are on a 16gb sd card. I have a lot of apps and games. Wish my phone was 32gb. Apps and especially games are getting bigger and bigger.

    16gb isn't much and can be used up quite quickly.

    No lie.

    I ran out if space within 3 days of getting my phone. Even with a 32GB mini.

    I blame Gameloft

    Well I'm not "good with it" I hope in the next update we get the ability to install to the Sd card.

    At least it's 16 GB + SD. I'd go insane if I had to decide what fits on, say, a Nexus 4.

    I'd definately appreciate more storage or the ability to install apps to a card... I have just 16gbs to install data on but have a 64gb sd card... seems a little backward, lol.

    One thing I'm noting is that if I dl a big app, you can always delete it and then retrieve it from BlackBerry World later. So I can play a game with a large file size, then delete it, but always have access to re download it later.

    I have 14.1 G used with 2.3 G used on a 32G SD. I'm not into apps or games .16G on a smart phone is not enough

    I save everything to SD card and am not big into apps so my 32gig SD card will suffice for now. Wanted a 64 gig SD card but they were sold out.

    I was wondering about that, someone explained it that since blackberry is not a high volume manufacturer compared to other oem, they can't offer different options. Not enough people would be buying the 32 or 64 gb options

    The problem with that is with "high end", or at least high priced, devices why make a 16GB version at all? Just making all devices 32GB would make them feel more "high end". I am not sure about the production cost of 16 vs 32GB, but would it really increase the price of a device that is already at 500+? Then you still end up with one line of devices for everyone to buy.
    I have not run out of space yet, but I am not an app hoarder (no games at least), so it is a non-issue for me. I wonder if this is also a result of BlackBerry's lack of experience with apps; they obviously want BBWorld to grow so it makes sense to have devices with enough space to install a lot.

    Going from 16GB to 32GB increases the retail price about $100 from most manufacturers (yes, it's only $50 for the Nexus 5, but that's definitely an exception). Most people aren't prepared to pay an extra $100, or even $50, for their BB phone, and given the production volumes, it wouldn't be feasible to make double the number of models to allow for a memory size option.

    Man I'd love to have a 64GB model . I wouldn't mind the price difference.

    But 16Gb is just too narrow. That's a handful of Gameloft games + OS.

    I saw someone else mentioned deleting and reinstalling the games. Nice idea except you lose all game saves. Might be OK for someone uninterested in games. But anyone who is like me and wants to keep game saves forever, not an option . Same reason I don't do leaks. Besides who wants to delete and redownload a couple GB every day because your swapping out games?

    I haven't used all of my on device storage just yet, but I can easily see future phones (*fingers crossed*) from BlackBerry upping the internal memory. Especially if they really want to go with this "mobile computing" idea. My laptop has a gazillion GB of storage I would like to see at least 32gb on my phone.

    Agree with the spirit of the forum 16 gb is too little.

    I'd love an app2sd function.

    And, re why only 16 gb, I'd only add that it is possibly due to BlackBerry only being able to source the 16 gb ram chips at a competitive and/or reasonable price. The larger chipsets - esp the 64 gb - are expensive! ( they're not like ram in a pc, though that has gone up too!!!)

    Just a speculative thought.

    Ya. A bigger internal storage would be nice. Maybe on Z10.1. I still got about 6gb left so no an issue at the moment.
