Photo Files

Photo storage requirements vary based on image format, compression level, resolution, and the contents of the image itself. But in general, a full-resolution JPG photo from a modern smartphone typically occupies around 2-5 MB.

Video bitrate depends on resolution, frame rate, compression level, video format, and the contents of the video itself. 1080p video at 30 frames per second typically requires about 100-200 MB per minute, and 4K video at 30 frames per second consumes roughly 300-500 MB per minute.

Music file sizes vary based on audio format, sampling rate, bit depth, and song length. A high quality 320 kbps MP3 or AAC requires 2.4MB per minute or about 10MB per song. However, higher quality, lossless formats such as FLAC can require up to 10MB per minute or about 40MB per song.
