So I would say its closer to 0.7-0.8 the size of x264 for the same visual sharpness on 1080p content. With 4k, UHD, 2160p (or however you want to call) it might be closer to 0.5 as there are more pixels to encode and the algorithms of x265 work more efficient.

I still mainly use x264, because my smartphone/TV/tablet have hardware accelleration for it and storage is very cheap.
I read that x.265 was created mainly because of concerns about mobile bandwidth in the near future.

Personally, I'd love to see Wifi routers installed at the top of light poles and along highways, with maybe some insurance offered by the Federal Government so investment losses aren't huge. Although that type of thing might already exist, I'm no expert on investment losses as they relate to American taxation.

I know a big problem with my idea is crime, so I'm thinking cheap cameras on or near the poles would be a good idea as well. Any motion not on the road itself would trigger taking a picture and then sending it back to the main server, and there'd be no requirement to view any pictures unless there was peculiar internet behavior at that point.
