    Christmas is around the corner and I'm down to 1.5GBs of free space on my 1020. I'm not feeling overly confident that the phone will make it through the festivities without me purging yet more content from the phone. As it stands, I'm removed some games and apps that I don't use much. I've also removed all the videos taken on the 1020 plus the other folders that stored my favourite photos from the 920, 808, N8, N95 and some other phones. I'm constantly having to delete photos which may not make the grade in order to save space. I even have a folder on my computer for 'photos deleted from the 1020 but I still want them'.

    What I wouldn't give for expandable memory support or failing that, USB-OTG!

    I have a 64GB 1020 so I dread to think how little time a 32GB model would have lasted before serious issues. I don't even shoot in RAW which has the potential to take up more space before removing the files for processing.

    I'm certainly not going to miss this aspect of the 1020 when I upgrade.

    I think my 32GB L1020 went down to its last 300MB almost three months ago. It was during a trip with my girlfriend to a famous tourist spot in my country. I actually had around 7GB of space before the trip, but I took away more or less 2GB in the first day with photos. The killer was in taking a 45-minute video at 30fps and 1080p resolution. I think I didn't even have enough space left since the video was all "jumpy" starting from the middle towards the end. But these are just the woes of a 32GB user.

    64GB!? Wish I knew there was one, but I doubt if it was/is/will be available in my country back then/now/in the foreseeable future.

    If you only use these photos for looking at them on the phone/no zoom: Copy the Pictures folder to a computer, resize them so that they never have a higher resolution than the 1020 display (1280 x 768), using some batch resizing program, then put them back. Or, if you still want them to look good on TV's, use 1920 x 1080.

    A 5 MP photo on my 1020 with many details is 2893 kB, after rezising it to 1280 x 720 in Paint it's only 572 kB, or 20 % of the original size.
    So if you have 10 GB of 5 MP photos and resize them to display resolution you gain about 8 GB of free storage space.

    Yes, there are some cons in doing this, but you save a lot of space. I assume you already have backups of the photos.

    A 1020 + card slot with a 128 GB memory card + a camera as fast as a 808 would make it last much longer for me, don't need more CPU power for my needs.

    And OneDrive, of course.
