It is often said that more memory space on a phone is unnecessary with the advancements in cloud storage. People have gone as far as saying that on-board memory and physical storage devices (like flash drives) are archaic and have no place in the modern world.
While it does seem that cloud storage is the way of the future, there are those who are worried about the security of their data. On top of that, there is also those who are worried about the reliability of that data. What happens if they lose internet connection?
