Smartphones are getting better and better in terms of technology these days. With that comes a lot of confusion too. We often witness with out devices that we do not get that memory storage that has been advertised to us in terms of internal storage and the companies just say that the remaining in reserved for operating system. With more and more OEMs line Xiaomi, Apple etc ditching SD cards on their flagships, cloud storage is becoming even more important in the mobile world. Services like Mi Cloud, Dropbox and Google Drive have already become widely adopted by the majority of smartphone users,Lets start with some brief of Cloud Storage and of External Storage.
Cloud storage is a model of data storage in which the digital data is stored in logical pools, the physical storage spans multiple servers (and often locations), and the physical environment is typically owned and managed by a hosting company. These cloud storage providers are responsible for keeping the data available and accessible, and the physical environment protected and running. People and organizations buy or lease storage capacity from the providers to store user, organization, or application data.
Cloud storage services may be accessed through a co-located cloud computer service, a web service application programming interface (API) or by applications that utilize the API, such as cloud desktop storage, a cloud storage gateway or Web-based content management systems.
As the name suggests, this is the external storage capacity of your phone. It depends on the compatibility of the memory card slot and to what extent is it supported. In simpler terms, it is the storage which can be removed easily by you (your memory card) and can be used for storing pictures, music, videos and the likes. You may or may not be able to install applications on it. This is because some manufacturers allow for it while some don’t. To an extent, even your cloud storage can be categorized as external storage.
If you have an OTG support for your device (more and more devices are starting to offer it), you can even use the memory of your USB device for storage That is all we have for you folks regarding the memory storage capacity questions that keep on pouring in. Do let us know if you still have any other queries.
