No problem John :)
I know you wanted info about some android apps similar to iOS but I couldn't quite gather what you need to do or which apps you're comparing ! If I could get a bit more then I'm sure we could get you this soon :) .

>> The difference in sizes is purely for storage of music, videos & apps! Metadata is not that big a storage issue & can be safely ignored in the grand scheme of things, at the 10GB + size anyway - a few MB in this case, which can mostly be reclaimed !
>> As far as performance goes, I've not measured any noticeable effect on the geek bench for iOS devices from 16gb to 128gb!
>> App wise out of the 300 or so I own, GarageBand is 689MB at the top of the size scale!
>> By the way even if you delete some app, music or videos from your iOS device, you can always download them again - that's why cloud storage is popular !
>> Just one thing: if you travel to areas or countries where wifi is scarce,or online access is prohibitively expensive or restricted , a larger capacity device is hugely useful when preloaded prior to travel with the right stuff!
