    internal memory

    I have a Galaxy S8 with 64g internal memory, of which 37g is in use. I'll be upgrading to an S9+ which I expect to keep several years - wondering if it's worth paying $80 extra for 128g internal memory. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    No, if you want to use an SD card. Yes, if you don't want to use an SD card. But i recommend an SD card since they are cheap and comes in varies sizes and shapes.

    In order to work well, the SD card needs to be the fastest you can get. Especially if you make 4K videos.

    I have a 128g SD card, but most apps require installation to internal memory. Just wondering if apps are likely to become larger over time, possibly maxing out 64g internal.

    Manofstill, why do you need 3 new phones annually?

    Real Reader's Digest version..... There is SD, SDHC and SDXC. SD is the slowest. The cards are rated by class as well. Class 2 is the slowest and Class 10 the fastest. The cards are also rated in Mb/second of data transfer. Slower cards read data slower and for video are a pain to use. Get the fastest, class 10 SDXC you can afford. (Make sure the phone you buy can handle the card you get).

    SD cards come with different read and write speed capability. Even the slowest Speed Class 2 is fast enough to play audio files, but can be pretty slow to write the files to it.

    A memory card is not an all-purpose solution, since apps often require installation to internal memory.

    another thing to keep in mind SD cards easily become corrupted

    I've given up keeping anything "important" on SD cards as i've lost data more times than I can count that way. I just buy the bigger size and skip the SD now a days.

    I have had two fail. They completely stopped working and could not be reformatted to fix any corruption. One was a Polaroid brand that I got off the peg at Best Buy. The other was some brand name like Samsung or SanDisk.
