You always did look good in that mint colour :P lol

 

I just got one because it's cheap and I like phones, might make a good birthday present for someone.

I just don't get, and wouldn't buy, a phone with no micro SD card slot.

 

Otherwise I would have been very tempted.

I have never used more than 20gigs on the phone. I stream my music (Pandora is nice on mobile data) and my photos/videos backup while charging on WiFi.
So a 32 gig phone is fine for me.

Video that I am recording. Not hard to fill my note 4s remaining space up in 1/4 of a day, and its a prick to move it over to the SD card since the phone is prettymuch unresponsive to anything while files are moving there.
