Is 16GB enough storage space for a tablet device?

This is a little bit device-dependent. The amount of FREE storage space is more important than the total storage space. An iOS device uses about 2GB of space before you put anything on the device. An Android device uses 4GB of space before you put anything on the device. A Windows device uses 14GB of space before you put anything on the device.

16GB is enough room for 100 apps and school-related documents. But music, photos and especially video can take up a lot of space as well. We will recommend that students take advantage of cloud based storage for most of their storage needs, therefore we believe that 16GB is enough free space for student’s educational needs. You may wish to get a device with more storage if students will store many games, songs, videos or photos on their device.
