Limited storage on phone hinders fewer Indian users in 2018technicalstudio | March 26, 2018 | 0 | Mobiles
With better quality comes bigger file sizes and according to research done by SanDisk, storage is an issue for smartphone users in India. Their report claims that 29 percent of consumers run out of space once a week and it happens to 62 percent at least every three months.
This number is actually down from 2016 when 83 percent of smartphone users complained that they had to delete apps to free up storage on their phone. Even users that ran out of memory every week was as high as 60 percent.
This shows that smartphone companies are keeping up with the trend of bigger file sizes with phones like the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S sporting 256GB ROM and mid-range phones shifting towards 64GB variants.
According to the report by SanDisk in 2016, 65 percent of users were hindered by the fact that the storage capacity of their phone’s was 16GB or less. In today’s day and age, there’s hardly a phone that comes with less than 16GB ROM. In addition to which, a lot of phones also give users the option to expand the device’s memory if they should choose to do so.
The current report states that this predicament leads to 46 percent of people having to delete files or data off of their primary devices in order to make space, while 77 percent of users have to do this at least once a month.
