    Okay for those of us that opted to get the big daddy of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, how do you plan to fill up your 128 Gigabytes? Well, 114 GB after Apple takes it's part.

    Right now, I've got:

    3151 songs
    95 videos
    1593 photos
    88 applications

    And I still have 74.4 GB left!

    Do we really need to fill it up? Just having space available is nice, no need to worry if file is too big.

    I'm not filling up my 64GB, never mind 128GB. I can't imagine what I could do to fill up a 128GB phone.

    iTunes says I have 55GB spare.

    It's a good feeling to have. I'll just continually take photos and videos. Use PlexPass (lifetime member, baby!) to sync videos across.

    Mind you, I can't iCloud backup, or iCloud Photo Library because I need to sign up for the 200GB tier (I'm on 20GB atm). So, that's another monthly cost I need to tack onto my already massive contract.

    Started with over 40GB of music. Lots of PDFs used for work.

    It is just nice not having to worry about it.

    Recording videos of the kids playing is the main space-sucker.

    But also, I use my 6 Plus as a backup for my PC's files, by using it as an extra big USB stick. Nobody said you need to keep the space just for the phone's use. ;)

    I have 97GB left, but it's good to know I will never have to delete photos unless I want to.

    Just received my 128 6+ today.. First iPhone since the 3GS.

    The first thing I don't was transfer across an 85GB iTunes playlist.

    Agreed, it's a nice warm feeling of freedom.

    Like having a car with a full tank of gas: The possibilities are endless.

    ~6000 songs
    ~5000 pictures
    ~75 videos
    249 apps

    ~40GB of space left.

    I'm already getting jittery, worried about running out of space. :(

    why do you need all 85GB on your phone. Surely it would be easier to get a cheaper smaller model and use iTunes match.

    I still have 105GB left on my 128GB iPhone 6 after loading it up with my music, pics, and Apps. I don't think I could fill it even if I tried.

    That depends on wifi availability and/or ongoing monthly cost of additional cellular data. If you have to jump up to the 15/30GB tier or higher (+$30/mo or $360/yr vs 10GB on AT&T and Verizon) just so you have sufficient data for music streaming, you're better off just buying bigger storage right out the gate.

    I'm sure that given time, I will be able to fill it up. I have a three terabyte hard drive that is half full of media.

    Right now I have:

    1033 Songs
    15 Videos
    110 Apps

    87.7GB Free

    Probably won't add very many more songs despite my 15,000 strong iTunes Library because iTunes Match makes that pointless. I'll probably fill it over time from all the videos and pics I plan to take. I had a 32GB 5S and ended up having to delete a lot of them.

    $100 is cheaper than the increased mobile data consumption for all that music over two years.

    I've got a 64GB with only 14GB left free. Surprised at how quickly I've used it up and would have been nice to have a 128GB version to not have to worry about space.

    Think about it this way, you've used up 54GB of data already, getting dangerously close to full capacity if you had a 64GB iPhone. With 128GB you've got that peace of mind. :)
