lol, not complaining, just don't see why you can't splurge $50 on the storage.
Cuz it doesn't make sense on something you don't need? Why not put the $50 to good use? (case, screen protector, etc)

if you have to hook up a bunch of cables the other guy mentioned, then yes, you need it

That costs no where near $50. He was just suggesting another way of adding more storage.

Exactly.. Waste of money on something you don't need.. I just recently upgraded to 5 gigs of data, and was on 2 before.. Never had an issue with streaming.. Just make sure you upload to dropbox from your wifi..

As for screen protectors.. I ditched that scam a couple of years back.. I prefer enjoying my screen. The scratches on my screen after 2 years don't bother me nearly as much as that screen protector did after 2 months..

And really.. who are you saving your screen for? The next guy that is going to buy it?

Considering people are changing phones on a yearly basis, yes.

A scratch can really lower the price

I absolutely hate screen protectors too.

But other than scratches, you also have the issue with the oleophobic coating being worn out over time.

the convenience cost of hooking up a bunch of cables through the microUSB is huge

It is not purchased from US, it is considered purchased from google playstore Canada, but some phones are physically shipped from US, but they cleared the customs in advance. I don't know why some one got cheaper shipping, my quote is around $17 for one phone and $26 for two phone using "international priority" shipping.

For $50 you only get 16GB more and if you can saturate the first 16GB, how is 32GB enough? Assume you put HD movies, you can only put 8. That's $6.25 per movie. That same $50 will buy you 32GB next time, why spend now if you don't need it now?? if you require it I would like to hear about it, maybe something I missed, and I can still fix the order.

With external HDD, you can put 250 HD movies, for maybe $150.

I came from Apple and this ability is a dream.

Some available online but all show ships within 3 - 4 weeks now instead of the Nov 8th as the first wave.

My current phone is 16 GB and I have 1.5 GB left, I would like to put more music on it. I have lots of high quality music though and have no interest in hooking up an ugly train of cables, but it is okay if you can't relate
