    When I was in the store I had just enough money to get the 128GB or get the 32GB plus maybe a case.

    I'm so glad I went for the 128GB as 32 just wouldn't be enough. I got the case a bit later on.

    I got a 64GB model 6S+ and I have about 20GB available storage. Next time, I'm probably gonna opt for a 128GB just to have the additional space!

    Yeah, I didn't need 128GB on my iPhone 7, should've just went for the 32GB ... but I wish I'd got the 256GB 9.7" iPP over the 128GB I bought ... damn.

    I opted for 64GB rather than the 16GB for my SE.

    The upgrade was worth it IMO because I can load a lot more music without worrying about storage slowdowns or insufficient space for OTA updates.

    Other than storage space I'm glad I opted for 128 GB coz the 32GB models are proven to be significantly slower in read/write speeds.

    I've been using a 64GB 6S for a year and found out it was not enough the very first day...stuck with it tho. I can't imagine how you would have dealt with 32GB in this day and age :cool:

    I always bought the 16GB models and was fine with the storage. Now with the 32GB base model I have over 15GB still available so Im glad I didnt pay an extra $100 for storage that I didn't need.

    32 wasn't an option for me or I'd have gotten it. I use less than 20gb total since I use the cloud for most my storage.

    I got my dad the 32GB model. Just didn't make sense to pay an extra $200 or $8/mo (store was out of 128GB, only had 32GB and 256GB) for something he'll never use. If 128GB was available though, I probably would've gotten him that. Last, I checked, he was using less than 10GB so even the 128GB would've been a waste of money.

    I got the 128gb because there was not an option for 64gb. I had 64gb previously and it was plenty. I was concerned that the 32gb would not be enough storage as I am going to keep this phone for a long time.

    The supposed speed decrease of the 32gb was not a factor in my decision at all.

    It's All user based for storage. For me, I could still easily survive on 16 GB. With 32 GB being the base, I do appreciate the extra storage for reasons with larger software updates, live photo's, 4K video, which quickly consume storage.

    I could get by with 32gb but it means shuffling a lot of photos and video and not having my app library to hand. After always going for the entry level storage space, for the 7+, I went big (256gb) and won't look back.

    I almost went with the 32 GB 7+ but I only had to spend $40 more to get the 128 and even in jet black so I couldn't say no to that. My original plan was to dump my entire iTunes music library (all music copied from old CDs) and just rely on Apple Music but I bought the 128 jet black instead. I have around 400 Apple Music songs stored in the cloud so far and around 1200 pictures/80 videos and 80 apps (Snapchat and Facebook included). I have used 16 GB so far. 64 was good enough but 128 will be plenty.

    I have a 32 gig plus and I'm currently at 10.63 of that. It probably should be lower because I have some holiday videos to move.

    Unless this is your first smartphone you really should have a good idea of your storage needs. I'm not sure why someone would be "glad they selected X size"...it's not that hard to get it right.

    I don't really need that much space but considering I got the 7 on a trade in for $0 I decided to go for the 128Gb as it was an extra $100 but I thought it was worth it to have the peace of mind for future proofing my storage needs. Because who knows? I like knowing it's there if I need it. Also be more valuable as a sale item down the road when I feel like upgrading.

    Massive overkill from me. It was the only jet black 7+ they had and I'd been looking for months. Got mine about a week ago. Freaking T-Mobile.

    You will never get that $100 extra back when you resell it down the road.
    You will get a fraction of that money compared to the base storage model sold.

    I don't regret it, but I'm only actually using 15GB so it wouldn't have been a big deal yet. I don't like the hassle of running out of space, though, so I'll keep getting the larger storage option every year.

    From someone who sells tons and tons of iPhones (me) a 128gb iPhone 7 will fetch you probably 15$ more compared to the 32gb 7 when the 7S releases.

    If even that.

    Resale is great on iPhone but as far as storage it's crap. Always have been ever since 2007.

    Also the read write speeds aren't noticeable on higher storage models unless all you do is transfer 4K videos to your computer.

    Given the iPhone 7 only has USB 2.0 as far as I'm aware, there's probably not gonna be any meaningful difference even when transferring 4K videos to the PC. Storage speeds of 500+MB/s isn't gonna mean a thing when your bus speed is limited to 40MB/s.

    This must be your first phone 'cuz surely you already know what you currently require, then double-it for a new phone?
