Am I the only one who is completely fine with 16GB as the capacity for my iPhone. I listen to my music on Spotify, I don't watch movies on my iPhone and if it's been a while since I used a game, I delete it and download it again when I want it.

I bought a 32GB one year and didn't go over 16GB. Feel like i'm the only one who is happy with 16GB reading posts on here.

I am fine with 16gb ( I have 32 but I do not use them). Everyone I know is fine with 16gb, too.

You aren't the only one. I simply:
- transfer my photos to my computer when I get home
- have an average sized MP3 collection (300 songs)
- have less than 30 apps

its funny im the complete opposite. My app usage alone will put me near cap on a 64 gig. That's why im going for the 128 this time around now that they offer it. Sure alot of stuff is in the cloud now but what about those times when you want to record a video spur of the moment and you can only get 2 or 3 minutes in because your storage is near capacity? I'd rather have more unused extra space then be pissed and regret it later if i NEED more space and can't do anything about it (outside of deleting apps and games I really would rather not)

I think the 16gb limits what you can do with your Phone.


I dont listen to alot of Music, but I use my phone for listening to Audio books that I load onto the phone.

If you want to have a couple of apps, games and room on the phone to take video then the 16gb is starting to be too small.

128gb is the only possible size any of us should be considering as we need space for our naked selfies and ice bucket challenges and our 43 megapixel panoramic's of our office cubicles. Cloud schmoud.

Each of my naked selfies use half a gig per pic. The ladies know why. ;)

Started with 16GB for my first iPhone, then ran out and went to 32GB for the next 2 iPhones and now 32GB isn't enough so i'm glad they've replaced the 32GB with 64GB.

I have thousands of songs and thousands of photos though.

:D

I'm pretty sure I can live with 16GB and I'm likely to purchase that model when the times comes

I have always had 16. Has become a pain to manage (move photos to computer every couple of days, delete apps to add videos when I travel...ETC). Planned to move to 32 this year, but since no 32 it will be 64 for me. I will be very happy not to have to manage in the future.

I couldn't do with 16gb, I have 32gb, its fine as I don't have to manage anything. I'll look forward to getting 64gb for the same price though as I can film more video and leave them on the phone. Something I can't do with 32gb. If I didn't take pictures or film stuff I could make do with 16gb but Im not sure i'd want to.

I've always gotten the 16gb to save money and every few months I need to either delete or back up videos/pictures for room. What sucks about the 16gb version is that it really only lets you use around 13gb of it. I might get a bigger size this year because I might be more inclined to use the better camera for videos.

I've always picked the 16g phones but this time I'm going 64. For $100 more I'll jump up. Maybe with the plus I'll be taking more pics and playing more games.

I'm beginning to get worried that the 64GB Plus is the one that will be in highest demand and there may be an issue getting them delivered. It's the one I'm getting. Oh well. I guess I HAVE to get up at 0230 on Friday to preorder.

I'll be up at 2:30 as well. I've done it in the past and I've always gotten in and gotten the order either on the launch date or a couple days later. Tonight I'm ordering two. One foe me and the wife. I'm Ok with that I guess. If I have to wait I'll live through others here. LOL.

I'm fine with 16 gigs. I keep some music on my phone, but only a couple of playlists' worth. My iPod is where I keep the full collection. Most of the pics I take are of my kids and I prefer to get them transferred onto my wife's laptop for organizing on a regular basis anyhow.
