Fact: There’s no such thing as too much storage. The more memory that a device has, the happier its owner will be. There is however, such a thing as paying too much for extra storage, and that’s why we’ve yet to see an iPad or an iPhone with a higher capacity than 64GB.
If you’re building a mobile device like a smartphone, tablet or even a laptop, flash storage, also known as a solid-state drive (SSD) is the way to go. As they contain no moving parts, they’re less likely to break down over time due to repetitive motion, and if the device they’re baked into gets dropped, there’s no risk of the kind of data loss that we associate with old school hard drives. Since there are no drive platters, there are no drive platters to damage. They’re also wicked fast compared to traditional hard drives.
