16GB or 32GB on a Nexus 7?
« on: December 05, 2012, 08:55:04 PM »
Please comment on the pros and cons of these 2 memory options.  One con for the 32GB is the $$.

Thanks in advance.

Hello and Welcome to the forum.
The two tablets are identical except for the amount of space and the price. For 50 more dollars I would go with the 32. I am not really sure how to answer as far as the pros and cons except for the fact that one has less space and one has more. If you are going to be using your Nexus to store media , 16 GB can fill up real quick. Actually, so can 32!:D

There are no pros and cons its just getting what you pay for. Most people prefer the 32 as I do.

I got a 16GB at launch, I now have a 32GB so would suggest you go with the 32GB if you plan on using it for multimedia and/or gaming...

When you say a con for the 32 is the money. Do you think it is too much money or just stating that it is more money than the 16? My opinion is that the 32 is the best value there is in a tablet.

I think all of us 32 owners agree that the 50 bucks for the extra storage is definitely the way to go for anyone besides the light user. Not really a con.

I got a 32. You won't be sorry with the extra room to move. If you're planning on buying food with the money you save, perhaps you don't need a tablet any way ;D

I'm a minimalist, storing 10gb of data on a 32gb flash drive attached to an 8gb N7. I'm planning to give it to my son, & bought a 16gb to replace it.

I run several data-intensive astronomy and birding apps, &  still have nearly 10gb of storage left on my 16gb N7. I'd be wasting money to buy the 32gb model.

I'm not the lowest of the low, but I am the slowest of the slow.

My Nexus 7 C60 is a 8gb model with the awesome screen lift issue and a weird scuff from the factory. It was a birthday gift to me ( 11 years old ) by my Dad. It is enough for all of my apps and games. My parents call me the WI-FI snatcher because when I turn my tablet, it gets almost all of the signal. I am kinda pissed when I heard about my Nexus 7 having a 32gb variant, but anyways it was a gift. -Yoshi-:-) :-)

To me, it depends totally on your budget and what you plan to use your tab for.  I still have the 8g and I haven't bumped my head yet.  But I don't keep any tunes/movies/pics etc. on mine to any great extent.  But if $ is no object then of course, go with the largest, you'll not regret it!

Get what you want with the money you can afford.

Most things run from the cloud, so it's up to you to decide.
