ive been using my iphone since the first launch day... i've installed 110apps, and I only used around 6gb... I still have over 21gb available... should i just exchange my iphone to the 16gb one instead and use the money to get a really nice aluminum case?

No definitely not

After 6 months of photos, videos and music that extra space will come in useful.

In my opinion, nah. There's a possibility that your needs will change and suddenly you start filling it up. And at that point you won't be able to just exchange it for a larger size.

Now, when upgrade time comes around and you buy a new phone, if you're still under the 16GB threshold, then you might want to consider saving the space next time around.

If you decide to start recording videos, you'll need the space. 7GB per hour of 1080p recording on the iPhone 5. I'm coming from the iPhone 4, so it's nice now to be able to record continuously vs the max 3.78GB before.
