    Where is the source mentioning “awesome features on X” need more space?

    There is nothing. I asked "like what?" before and never got anything. If you don't need all that much space and use cloud storage for most, the 64 is perfectly fine. Even all my 4K videos are stored in iCloud.

    I'd have preferred 128GB option vs 64GB for iPhone X and I don't like the way they play with storage numbers each year at all, it's a marketing trick obviously.
    but I can't justify paying that much extra just for piece of mind.
    you can buy a full on smart phone with the price difference.
    I have 128GB 7 Plus at the moment with over 120 Apps,over 300 photos and few videos and with iOS itself I've used less than 19GB from 128GB!
    So In think 64GB will be perfectly fine.

    I'm with ya. Each year I use less and less storage though so I am not too worried about it. I'll just buy the smallest size option moving forward. I used 25GB of my 256GB 7 Plus.

    Same here. I am barely using 20GB of my 64GB iPhone 6. So in 3+ years, I have basically used a 1/3rd of it. Also I haven't even maxed out my free 5GB of iCloud storage.

    I probably would have ordered a 128GB version tho. But since it doesn't exist, I will just go for 64GB. Between cloud storage and other ways to get data backed up off the phone, I think 64GB will be fine for a decent amount of time for me.

    Going with a Black 256GB. My 7+ is 256GB and I couldn't imagine going back down to 64GB. I have a pretty extensive music collection that I've amassed over the years and I refuse to pay $9.99 a month to stream music I already own.

    lol lets calculate :

    256GB of Music ? lets say 5 Megabyte each

    thats 51,200 songs

    Thats 153,600 minutes

    2560 hours

    106 days

    3.5 months

    so if you listen to all of them just once 24/7 you need 3.5 months lol ... right ... and thats ignoring the time ou need to select playlists among them ..

    well do you have A LIFE ?
