Why do people buy phones with 256GB or even 512GB of flash? Do they use them to backup their PC? They have nowhere to upload their photos and videos?

Please help me understand what you do with that extra storage that's being sold at 10x the real cost of flash, and needs some form of backup anyway. 🤔
