Our world is going global with the presence of internet, convalescent mobile tech and all other forms of advancements, providing ways of making life easier for human kind. We at the user end consume more and more data progressively and this negatively enforces our needs for a larger storage space. I remember in late 2007 when my dad bought my official first phone. Before then, I’ve already used like 3 phones secretly hehehe 🙂 It was a Nokia 6230i with a 64MB MMC memory card. Life was good mehn.The space was enough for the music I downloaded, and the few I collected from friends. My pictures fitted in too and everything was just fine. Fast forward to 2014, I’m seriously looking for a 1TB external hard disk drive to contain my files. My laptop of 128GB is full,my external hard disk of same 128GB is almost full. I have 2- 8GB, and 1- 4GB memory cards all full Whew!!..
I sat and asked my self, “How did it get to this stage?”. It never used to be like this. Going down memory lane.
First, it started with my love for various genres of music. You download, you collect from friends and the collection keeps growing. Then we started throwing in pictures, videos, music videos, funny videos, document files,books and Opera Mini saved pages. At this stage, things were manageable a 2GB memory card was enough. The absolute glut started when I started liking digital copies of movies. I stopped buying and preferred to download and have digital copies ( this was the period my first laptop arrived). Movies ate up almost everything and also coupled with the fact that my music collection grew by the day. I got a 512MB memory card, further growth and I got a 1GB card, which grew to 2GB, 4 GB, 8GB, now 16GB isn’t still enough for me!! Whew!! Today, my digital library has grown so huge, over 1500 songs, countless movies, music videos, funny videos, tutorial videos, apps both for phones(of different OS’s) and PC etc. I finally concluded that the more you’re involved with technology, whether geek or not, your thirst for more storage space grows by the day.
On the other hand, take a time out and go through your digital library,you might just discover you’ve been storing plenty of junk or rather, files that are now less important. Doing this can help you recover some gigabytes of space. I know some people’s cases are worse than mine sha 😛
Now over to you, Are you also running out of storage space? what’s the minimum you can manage for a phone storage?
Have you ever gone through the files you already have?
