    Always had 32gb devices. Looking to get the rose gold sim free but can't decide between the two. Which is the better value 64gb or 128gb?

    I usually keep my phone three plus years. TIA

    I went from a 32gb iPhone 5 to the 64gb 6s plus

    Depends what you're going to use it for

    I mostly use mine for browsing, streaming movies and taking pics

    Most of my family members got the 64GB, but we usually switch phones in 1-2 years. If you're planning to keep it for more than 3 years, go all out and get the 128GB. If you're a power user, no regrets! (It's overkill for me since I stream music/videos and transfer my photos to the computer).

    It's far too individual to speculate.

    It all depends on how you use your phones.
    I have a 64GB version and really, 32GB is enough for me. I don't store music on my phone and nobody really needs to cart every single photo & video they've ever taken/made around with them, not with USB/Lightning cables and cloud storage space readily available.

    I got a 64gb and I'm a big selfie person...Ahaha. 32gb is the perfect amount for me though.
    You gotta think about how much stuff you save.

    We got 128gb because it was free upgrades through T-Mobile. I'd have gotten myself 64 and everyone else 16 had that not been the case though.

    64 was plenty for me, 128 was overkill and not worth that extra $100.

    I went from a 64GB 6+ to the 128GB 6S+. I take a lot of slow motion videos while I travel, especially in landscapes out West. No cloud in the world can reach me there and its a pain to be hit with storage limitations just as you line up that perfect sunset time-lapse. The new 4K capability wouldn't help me if I was already hitting the limit on the older 1080P camera.

    I'm paying full price so price is $1,030 tax included. Ouch! But if it's worth it to double the 64gb then I will.

    You got to evaluate your usage with what you have currently. If you are frequently hitting that 32GB limit, then it would be reasonable to say that 128GB will take care of you. If you are hitting your limit only once in 6 months, then maybe 64GB will suffice.

    16 to 64 this time. Resale value may be something to consider too.

    16 gb to 64 gb for me, 16 just wasn't enough.

    I think I may go with the 64gb $921 sounds better. I will use the other $100 to get AppleCare. Cough I mean $130.

    I already have a 128GB iPad Mini 4 so as soon as the SIM-free 6S+ was released I grabbed a 64GB one...from the online store so it's being made right now I guess.

    6 years ago I bought the iPhone 3GS with 32GB capacity and as I just used my MacBook, there was no problem with space then either.

    But that didn't have 4K video capabilities...

    I have a 64gb iPad Air 2. Since I will be taking more video and pictures the 128gb would be nice.

    If you need it. I will just offload excesss pictures onto a Mac or keep them on iCloud if they still allow that.

    64gb... photos/vids/files are on GDrive or my NAS... but apps are pretty big nowadays, so 64gb is a right one for me.

    Not sure why anyone need 128gb on their phone unless they have like a huge library of pirated music and movies

    Would ideally have opted for 32 gb had it been available.. So 64gb iPhone 6s Plus.. It's only apps and photos that's going to consume memory for me.. Music is online for me.. No wonder Apple Music is turning out to be a failure as who pays for for music now a days
