Does The Internal Memory A Problem With Nexus S 4G

Google Nexus S (Samsung Nexus S), is the latest Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS powered device. The new Nexus S 4G will provide Google Voice features for Sprint customers. Google Nexus S is designed with Samsung’s brilliant Super AMOLED touch screen technology providing a premium viewing experience.

Most of you might be considering getting a Nexus S 4G, But the fact is that it doesn't have an external memory slot. The real deal is when you are planning to use Nexus S 4G as your primary mp3 player as well. Is space an issue if we wouldn't need to carry our entire music collection around us, so we don't need a mass amount of space. 16g would honestly be fine, but what about apps and stuff?

Well, I think 16GB is enough for most people. Just depends on how much music you want or need to keep on the phone.

Does The Internal Memory A Problem With Nexus S 4G

The next question that comes to the buyers of Nexus S 4G, is their a good chance this phone will continue to get updates for awhile or will it be entering End Of Live (EOL) soon.

But some are choosing to rely on a growing trend: cloud storage. If you are one who plan to use Cloud Storage, follow my other post to know the Advantages And Disadvantages To Cloud Storage.

The Nexus S 4G should receive updates for quite some time, so no need to worry about that. You know that the original Nexus One is still getting updates. That's the beauty of Nexus phones. If you are planning to get Nexus S 4G, it is sure that you'll get updates for a long time.

And talking about the music, if you need to store tons of music, consider Google music. All you need is a little desktop app and an android app and all your music will reside on the cloud. But it has some disadvantages as well, as you need to be using Internet for accessing the Music you need.

I had some concerns at first. But when i put it in the perspective of my former 4GB MP3 player. Google Nexus S was definitely enough for what I needed at any one time. But keep in mind the actual amount of space you will really have is about 14gb.

Thanks to deceptive marketing tactics used by the entire industry as relates to storage capacities you start with less than 16gb. Also the "internal" partition gets 1gb of the space.

In simple, On Google Nexus S, there is no optional 16GB Card or Card Slot, 16GB is what you get on Google Nexus S and that is plenty. Also there is an option for cloud storage. Just read more on the Advantages And Disadvantages To Cloud Storage on one of my earlier post.
