    Just bought my first iPhone since I had the 3G but I opted for the 16Gb model. I fear I've made a mistake and should have possibly paid £80 more for the 64 GB model, as I have no idea how much space apps etc generally take up on iOS. I only opted for the 16Gb as £620 was getting a bit high for a phone! Any advice ? I don't plan on putting over much music on it but it be nice to have a little offline listening.

    Edit: asking because I have 14 days to return it

    I wouldn't recommend the 16GB to almost anybody. It's just not enough space. If all you want it for is a phone, Facebook, apps etc, and don't want music or photos on it, you might be able to get by with a 16GB, but even then it would be tough.

    You could exchange it for one with more storage. I made the same mistake so I exchanged for 128 gb. I shouldn't have any worries now.

    You're fine. I get by fine. I have all my music in iTunes Match. I have 60 apps (no games). A couple hundred photos in camera roll. Still have more than half capacity available.

    The true remorse that hasn't hit you yet is that you should have went with the Plus.

    Why do you fear that? Is there any basis for it on your part, or is it the result of reading threads on MR?
    I don't see why you shouldn't return the device, if you are afraid of your purchase.

    I had the same buyer's remorse when I purchased the iPhone 4GB instead of the 8GB back in August of 2007.

    Really depends on how you are going to use it. Some games can take up 1gb in space, so it doesn't take many to fill up 32gb.

    I initially bought my GF a 16gb iPhone 5S as she doesn't keep any music on it, but I'm glad I swapped it for the 32gb in the end as it's nearly full with apps, photos and videos.
