Not sure I really need 256GB, but thinking the 64GB will sell out first?
Both models will sell out within 30 seconds.
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 and I will just need to be more careful with storing photos thats all.
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
Its mostly those that record alot of video that need more space, especially with 4k video
When they will launch the 128 gb model ? What do you think?
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.
