Not surprised. SPotify downlaods and saves a lot of data...

Storage.... Well that's your cache and offline apps. If you want to listen to music you need this, so that should be a given. Spotify and Plex are my main storage eaters, but that's because i store stuff offline.

For cpu. It shouldn't be too much. But things like notifications and connect run in the background. You can disable notifications in Spotify seems to save a little bit of cpu. Connect can be disabled, but only if rooted.

I'm not surprised either. Of course it's a "storage eater" but since I'm using Spotify I deleted my entire music library from my phone which always used the biggest amount of storage.

I never had problems with the perfomance of my phone in general when running Spotify in the background, but Spotify itself is quite slow and laggy on my 4-year-old iPhone. It's definitely something I wish to be fixed in the feature, even if the app runs smoothly on newest devices.
