    So I got my 128GB plus and I've only used 8GB...there's only 105GB left.

    Does it really come with 15GB installed?

    No, it doesn't use 15GB due to the installation. From the Apple page: http://www.apple.com/iphone-6/specs/

    "1GB = 1 billion bytes; actual formatted capacity less."

    This is like this in all consumer electronics. :)

    Oy. Operating system, apps, no hard drive has exactly what is advertised.

    Flash memory is measure in units of 1,000 = 1 mb. File systems measure in units of 1,024 = 1mb. So you lose some off the bat.

    Make sure Apple didn't load a bunch of U2 albums on it, U2 books, U2 pictures, hell, even a U2 sex video on it.

    Agreed. You would think by now people would understand how this stuff works.

    No worries, so I looked deeper and saw it started with 114GB.

    I'm not mad, I just wanted to confirm that's the most free space you can start with. Can anyone else confirm?

    Confirm what? You've already been told numerous times by numerous people how it works.
