How much is 100 MB phone storage?
In terms of phone storage:
|Information||100 MB storage|
|Music (mp3)||Approx. 25 songs|
|Videos||About 50 five-second videos but varies with size.|
|GIFs||100-200, depending upon the size.|
Further, a G-Suite user can store up to 30 GB of content for free, whereas a Dropbox basic account includes 2 GB of space. Finally, when you sign up for iCloud, you automatically get 5GB of free storage.
So to sum up, 100 MB of storage won’t get you very far unless you’re just storing text-based content but again, with Apple’s Cloud and Google Drive, do we really need phone storage anymore?
