It is still overpriced with the given features. With unlimited data a thing of past, data costs going up, a cloud centric phone remains just a niche product, considering the storage woes can be cheaply addressed with cheap sd cards or phones with larger internal storage, which are available at same or far less prices in the market
Nothing is special in it except the cloud thing

….. 32 GB should be plenty for many, and in case it runs out of storage, not to worry, cloud to the rescue 🙂

Correct, we cant have it all ! We need to strike a balance in features to make it work for us. There is no perfect phone, and there never will be, someone always will find something that does not work for them. My point was, if it really bothers one that much, it can be either opted out or set to work when connected to charger. 32 GB should be plenty for many, and in case it runs out of charge, not to worry, cloud to the rescue 🙂
