Internal storage has always been an issue for most smartphone users, with high end devices offering 16 GB minimum storage and some devices if your lucky enough get the 32GB jump as well. Doing so does bump up the price quite a bit, which is why people generally do not opt for the 32GB variants. It is high time though that OEM’s should now focus on the internal storage of their devices as well and make 32GB the minimum requirement.
As OEM’s tend to put their own themes on top of the stock Android ROMs such as TouchWiz by Samsung and Sense by HTC. These theme eat up a fair share of the internal storage memory leaving the user with not much room to work with, unless you add a micro SD card in the mix, but still not the same.
Meizu a Chinese company is the first to launch a 128GB smartphone the Meizu MX3, this is NOT only the feature which gets our attention. The Meizu MX3 runs on a Exynos 5 8 core processor , with 2GB DDR3 RAM and a 3-core PowerVR SGX544 MP3 GPU, which makes everything on the 5.1 inch 1080p display seems vibrant and flawless. At the back is an 8MP shooter, what makes this a good camera is the very fact it uses Sony’s backside illumination chip (BSI). Plus the usual suspects like NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 etc. The device comes in 16, 32, 64 and a whopping 128GB capacity.
We hope the other bigger OEM’s start taking this into consideration and the 2014 devices all come with 32GB storage, well hopefully all the flagship devices do.
