    When will people understand 8gb is totally useless for ideal tablet operation because ICS and upwards does not allow apps to be installed on the SD card. So you’re effectively left with 5gb for apps. Coolsmartphone and others should make this clear because it makes the above none news. A tablet needs at least 16gb for typical operation IMO.

      Unless you are an electronic pack rat the only thing that could cause you to need more than 7GB of usable space is music/movies

        I’d be surprised if you’re left with 7gb. 2 high quality games such as Ashphalt 7, MC3, 1 gig of music, a few other small essentials, a movie and your typically left with 7-800mb. ICS/Jellyb struggles with this amount of swap memory, this is my experience. I have a 16gb Nexus 7 and 8gb Moto.
