The hardware of smartphones every year is better, and we no longer only talk about quantity, but quality, since, both the internal memory and photographic sensors, for example, evolve each year qualitatively quite remarkably, and if not, compare the 13 megapixels of the camera of a range top of 4 years ago with the 13 megapixels of a current smartphone.
However, there are certain aspects that, every year, we think that manufacturers abandon a little in favor of others that we do not consider so important for most users on a day to day basis. Internal storage is one of them, and today we are going to tell you why 512 GB of internal memory seems an absurd amount to us.
As a general rule, manufacturers usually improve the hardware of their terminals every year. It’s the law of life, if you want to compete, you must be better than your rivals, and obviously that is not achieved by going one step behind at the component level.
With the passage of time we have seen how the flagships of the big companies were counting on versions with more and more storage, going from a very generous 128 GB to 256 GB, and now, at 512 GB, and this figure, right now, seems absurd.
And is that, although many users do not even have to start with an internal memory of 32 GB, the fact is that 128 GB and 256 GB and we think a more than acceptable for a smartphone that, after all, we will use in the vast majority of occasions to play multimedia stored in the cache, and less times to play this content from the internal memory.
The only justification we see possible to 512 GB is the recording of video to 4K, but we have no doubt that a user who has the two previous capabilities will also be satisfied their needs without having to reach the terabyte medium that some manufacturers are beginning to incorporate.
In our humble opinion, we think that we must banish once the 16 GB of the market, making all terminals start at 32 GB or 64 GB. However, before reaching 512 GB, it might be better for manufacturers put a little more effort into optimizing the software of their terminals, as well as the autonomy of these. It is incomprehensible that in full 2018 there are smartphones that cost more than 800 euros and whose battery can not stand until seven in the afternoon.
