Say what you want about the Samsung Galaxy S3. Perhaps you’re disappointed about not seeing a 12MP camera sensor on the phone or how the design of the Galaxy S3 isn’t the one you envisioned in your dreams. But if there’s one thing that we can all probably agree on is that owners of Galaxy S3 probably will not be encountering any lack of storage problem.

On top of that, the phone also has a microSD card slot, which allows you to add 64GB more into the storage equation. If the combined 128GB storage of the Galaxy S3 still isn’t enough, you’ll be pleased to know that Samsung has [...]

HTC recently announced its partnership with the cloud storage company Dropbox. With this partnership all new Android HTC smartphones will come preinstalled with the Dropbox app. And, not just that, owners will also get an additional 3 GB free for a whole year.

HTC users are now going to enjoy more data storage capacity, thanks to a recent tie-up between HTC and Dropbox. Today, via Facebook, HTC shared the good news to its users that Dropbox will come pre-installed on all its upcoming Android phones, giving all its users 5 GB of free cloud storage on Dropbox (more than the standard of 2 GB of storage).
Although, HTC did not clarify whether existing users will also enjoy this cloud-enabled file sharing application.
It appears that HTC’s strategy is to make its phones more appealing by giving those who will buy HTC phones free cloud storage rather than just focusing on adding more features to their phones. This appears to be [...]
I’ve noticed HTC has been focusing a lot on the cloud aspect lately, first with the HTCSense.com website, where they allow you to automatically backup text messages, call history, contacts, data and customizations.
Then they invested heavily in the OnLive gaming service, which “streams” games to your HTC tablet. And no, they’ve expanded on that strategy further with the addition of 5GB of free Dropbox storage (Dropbox already gave 2 GB for free) on new HTC Sense 3.5 phones.
Dropbox is the most popular service for syncing files between pretty much any platform, since they have apps for all. If you have important files and you want access [...]

You can now seamlessly (and remotely) manage and access all of your DS Audio, DS Photo+ and DS Cam app files even when you’re on the go, thanks to the newly released DS File especially designed for the savvy Android phone user.
The DS File enables Synology NAS users to remotely access DiskStation files as well as download files directly to their Android phones (given that the DiskStation Manager version is 3.0 or above). It likewise allows users to directly transfer files stored in Android phones via an HTTPS connection.
