    i bought IPX last year with 256 gb.
    now, a year later , i noticed that i dont need such big storage. I'm using 45GB approx.
    my young brother has X 64 and want to trade with me, and add 100$.
    is it worth it?

    256, you'll be happy in the long run. Just my opinion.

    If you plan on keeping the X longer, I would definitely keep my 256gb. You’ll be happy in the end.

    If you are happy with the cushion of about 10 GB then do it! I have managed my X last year and now my XS this year both with 64GB. I take a lot of photos but utilize the .99/month icloud upgrade and maintain about 30-40 apps that I actually use. The bigger question is how long do you plan to keep the phone?

    I use Apple Music, and iCloud for photos look at my numbers.....total I have 143 gig of my 200 plan on iCloud just for photos


    As far as photos go the ones you take with the phone chew up the internal storage at full high resolution but if you run low of space ....sign out of iCloud (you’re photos are safe online) and wipe you’re device and presto you cleared up space, sign back in and now the thumbnails that are in the photo library are a fraction of the size and you’re good. There are plenty of articles online about how to do this.

    Never been able to max out a 64GB phone, never mind when I had a 16GB phone. I suppose if you have lots of big games installed at the same time, but even then you just remove a game you aren't playing to install the game you want to play. Though this has only happened to me once on my 16GB iPhone 4 or 5

    Would've suggested 128GB if Apple offered it on the XS line.

    Only you can answer that question. I’ve always been clear on whether a certain storage amount will be enough. Frankly, I don’t understand how there can uncertainty about it.

    To this day, I never managed to fill nowhere near 64 GB on mobile devices.

    Unlike on desktop and laptop, where even 512 is too little for me.

    I firmly believe that great majority of users will be just fine with 64 GB.

    I'd first take a look at your app breakdown and see where your storage is being used.

    I still haven’t filled up my 64GB 6S after all these years, so I know 64GB is my sweet spot. It’s even better when Apple set the baseline iPhones to have 64GB.

    On my iPad mini 2, on the other hand, I am micro managing its 64GB storage. So for me, 64GB is not enough on iPads, but plenty for a phone, simply because I tend to use more apps and media on my iPad.

    If you don’t want to pay iCloud, go for 256GB.
