My question is, if i get a phone with 512MB internal, and root/use a small-footprint firmware, how much space will be left in the internal storage for all MY data? Is there a fixed amount of space set aside for firmware (that doesn't sound right)?
I had a cheap Archos tablet awhile back and learned quickly to use app2sd, which I'm fine with. I really just don't know how much internal storage is ENOUGH for me, which is obviously relative. Let me outline the main things I'm looking to do:
- Task Management App (Astrid maybe)
- Web browsing via WIFI
- Maybe a dozen odd games
- Probably some sort of calendar/alarm/reminder app as well
- Basic cell phone functions
I'm not a power user by any means, but I need to be able to accomplish those tasks without constantly hitting low memory or waiting minutes for load time. Definitely have enough know-how to figure out rooting.
Any advice would be great, especially example footprints of common firmwares/apps/etc.
