Good for you, go steal music, but try that in an area with no internet or on a normal iPod.

eh cloud hosting never really did anything to me. To me it's just for backup. app downloads are synced with your ID, I don't buy music from iTunes or videos, and I don't have people on photostream. Btw does anyone know when angry birds will be updated for iPhone 5?

I had a 16GB iPhone 4 and it was plenty until I started listening to podcasts that updated multiple times a week. Also, audiobooks take up alot of room. I went for the 32GB iPhone 5 for those reasons (I didn't see them specifically mentioned in the thread so I just wanted to point them out as space hogs)

I always go 16gb. There's plenty of other storage options. eg. Dropbox, iCloud, Photobucket, etc...

use Audiogalaxy to stream music from your home collection instead of storing it on the phone

i have a 16 and i would like to have more storage for pics/vids/apps (i have a LOT of apps)

having enough free space is also one of many OCDs of mine, i can't sleep when my iPhone drops below 5GB, my iPad below 10 GB or my Mac below 50 GB (on a 128 GB SSD) lmao
This is a shining example of why I need 32gbs.. I don't wanna sit and count every photo I take. Besides.. Having to fetch the photos from Dropbox every time you need to show your friend something seems to me as a waste of time...

I think 16gb is fine unless you want to carry a ton of movies and ur entire massive high res photo library with you. Personally I have a 60 apps, 4gb of music and still have 6.5gb of space left which will let me carry around a couple of movies for trips or what not. I still haven't touched my iCloud storage.

I don't have a whole lot of music saved on the iPhone and I don't carry any movies. I don't really find myself listening to music from iPhone that much. I don't play any games on it, either. I mostly just use it to make phone calls, text, and to browse on the internet (facebook, apps), etc. Don't have a lot of apps either. Yea, I'm pretty boring. lol

I have roughly 10 GB of space left and I don't think it'll change much other than some additional apps I may download in the future. So 16 GB is more than enough for me.

On a side note, I thought about getting the 32 GB version but I decided to use that extra 100 bucks to get the AppleCare+ instead.

I have a 16GB IPhone and wish I had more gb space on it. Reason behind this is that I manage a lot of documents on the go and when I'm bored I like to play games on my phone. I am also really social so I have the most known social networking apps on my phone and I have more than 3 texting services.
I had to compress my music down to 128kbp and that leaves me about 5gb of space so I uploaded all my movies onto a cloud database and now in up to abou 6.8 gb....
I require Internet to use the cloud service so when I watch a movie off of 3G it will drain my battery more than just watching a movie from the native video app.
It's your choice, but it's best not to struggle as I am haha.
My next phone probably be a 32gb or maybe go further than that to 64gb.
Hope this helps

I think 32gb is more ideal than 16gb. Not because it is double but because of it's not as less as 16gb and also not much as 64gb But most of all it's you who have to decide which you wanna buy.

I've tried that and it's ok. If you have a laptop with pets, it's not the best idea also. We now have a Mac Mini and both my wife and I combined our music on it and I'm thinking about trying this again. My issue is I use data, the battery turns to crap.. and that's when i even get signal on a job site. My wife would be ok because she can do this with her iPod Touch and she's on WiFi all day.

I also knew that I'd never use more than 16G, so used the extra $100 to purchase AC+. Right now my iPhone is slightly more than half full. I don't habitually carry very much music, don't take a lot of pictures, and have only a moderate collection of apps. Also, I do also own a 160G iPod Classic, which could easily handle any overflow.
