    Greetings! I am hoping someone would be able to have an answer to my question regarding the quantity of 8MP pictures on the 16GB iPhone 4S. I have not owned an iPhone before but I am assuming there are compression settings for the pictures. I guess to make it simple my question is: How many pictures is it possible to take on an iPhone 4S 16GB? Thanks in advance!

    Great responses! Thanks :)

    It depends on the compression/quality settings, but if you figure 4MB per picture, how many times does 4 million fit into 16 billion?

    A lot. :)

    I remember hearing that an 8MP picture is somewhere around 4MB (depends on several things, such as the amount of white in a picture). So 16GB = 16384MB (lets say 16000 because of the OS and whatever). 16000MB / 4MB pictures = 4,000 pictures. I'd really estimate a MAXIMUM of 3000 with contacts and what ever else is needed for the iPhone.

    I googled how many mb is a 8mp picture and the generally idea I got was that on a 2GB card you can hold around 400-600 medium quality on a 2gb card and about 250 high quality sooo...

    3200-4800 Medium quality

    2000- high quality.


    give or take a few.. but really there is plenty of space!

    It's going to be the 1080p video that eats up space, and makes the 64GB iPhone 4S so attractive...

    Plus the 1080 Video's too. I'm sure I'll do fine on my 16GB.
    If not we got the cloud!
