    Not sure I really need 256GB, but thinking the 64GB will sell out first?

    No brainer - 256 for me as currently using about 180gb on my 7+.

    It was slightly easier to get the 256 last year but that was because there was the 128 option. I originally planned to get the 128 on the upgrade programme but then decided last minute to go with the 256 without the iup. Turned out to be a good decision.

    I'm going for 256GB. Your paying the price of $999, why not pay another $150. It's the $199 Apple Care that depresses me.

    Not even stressing that $199 Apple Care cause I upgrade every year and the phone already includes it for a year.

    I plan on keeping the 8 for 3-4 years, so I need to invest on AC, especially on a new model as the X.

    Well this is more depressing for us in the EU. 128GB was the right choice for me only if it exists.

    64gb for me as I store everything in the cloud now days and I only use 28gb on my 128gb iPhone 7+

    I have a 64gb 6s plus. It's enough memory for me now, but I'm thinking of going for the 256 iPhone X rather than the 64. Rationale: if you're already paying $1,000 the additional $150 is not that much more--especially on a monthly payment plan.

    64gb. Partly because it's all I need if I'm careful, and partly because it's the only way I can give Apple a little slap for marking up their product as much as they do. Yes, I'll be giving them a lot of money, but not as much as they want. It's a small win.

    64 GB. And this is somebody that's coming from 32 GB and I barely even filled that.

    iCloud is ok but it still takes up a fair chunk of the storage (I prefer the way google photos behaves)

    I have a 128gb 7+ with 4,476 photos and all my other jazz and somehow I use less than 28gb on my phone. Go figure.

    (Make fun of me if you must) Currently using 16GB 5S with 50GB iCloud, and I'm doing "fine". I'm thinking 64GB X because the larger one is 200€ more - but my fears are:
    • Custom iOS on X will be at least 10GB (deved quickly and unoptimised)
    • AR pushing will make for super cool apps that are 2-5GB each
    • In a few months there will be a 128GB model that is just a few cents more than the current 64GB
    Are these fears justified?

    I dont understand why people need 256gb. People are old school.

    I even find 32gb more then enough.

    Everything I do is on the internet. Only apps and pictures take my space. I dont have more then 50 pics so my phone is usually empty lol

    To be fair, in previous launches people have pre-ordered their IPhone up to 4 or 5 hours after the go live window and were able to get it on launch day. Granted with limited supply of the X this might be slightly different but I think anyone who orders within a couple hours of launch will still get it on launch day. Especially with the IPhone 8 coming out beforehand to steal a portion of the total user base.

    I'm looking at the 64GB but only because of price. If you get the 256gb plus Apple Care you will be paying around $1,400.00 with tax. If you get accessories you are easily looking at a $1,500.00 phone. That's a hard one to swallow. Even the 64GB with Apple Care you are looking at over $1,200.00.

    Since my current devices are 128GB and wouldn't fit in a 64GB device, I'm going 256GB. I don't like playing the space management game. I'd rather have too much memory than need to move things around to make space.

    I'm coming from a 16g 6+ so I'm definitely going with the 256g this time. I bought the iCloud space that uploads my photos but I still want the extra space for peace of mind. I love taking photos and videos which take up a lot of space. Also, the apps just keep getting so large and I don't want to sacrifice downloading some of my favorite apps just bc I don't have enough space.
