    ...that 4K videos, and live photos will take up so much space? I usually go with the 64GB versions, but I do like taking video and pics, that I'm worried that 64GB won't be enough.

    Are you all willing to shell out an additional $100 for piece of mind?

    I have the 128 gig 6plus. I have never had this much memory before and usually average mis 70's of gigs remaining so I will probably go with 64 this time.

    Yes, I am. Going for the 128 GB version easily. I have the 128 GB 6 and I've filled up all but 10 GB of it. Definitely worth it for me, at least.

    I will go 64 this time, but since I have bought into iCloud and iCloud drive, I will eventually need 128. Hoping for another year or two with 64 though. I do not take a ton of photos/videos and stream music.

    My photos are saved in the cloud and I transfer videos to my external drive most of the time. I'm going with 64GB this year.

    These will only take space when you keep them. I don't have a 4k tv so will not shoot in 4k. Even if I did I would transfer everything to a HD.

    I hardly ever take photos and have no interest in 4K videos as I have no TV or monitor that is capable of displaying all those pixels. I will probably keep live photos on but I will always record in 1080p.

    64GB is enough for me. I just need the space for apps/music but to be honest I could probably get away with 16GB still as I don't really install a lot of apps and stream my music. However, 16GB is just ridiculous in 2015 and I don't mind the extra money towards 64GB which gives me a little peace of mind.

    I was inclined to get the 64GB when that was the max Apple offered with the iPhone 5 and I wanted the maximum I could get. When I got my 6+ I was inclined to get the maximum capacity I could get (I always am - and do) so I got the 128GB iPhone.

    My next iPhone purchase I will STILL be inclined to get the maximum amount (whatever that may be at the time) and I will get it.

    I'm really not sure between 64 and 128GB

    I've got a near 30GB iTunes library and 10GB Photos library which already drains the majority of my storage, that said there's still a good 20GB free there for whatever Apps and content I install. Who knows, for the price difference and the length of time I stay with a single phone (I'm still with my iPhone 4 for example...) I may just jump for the full 128GB and have the peace of mind.

    I don't take a lot of pictures or videos and the ones I do take are loaded to the cloud. My 64G IP6 always has about 50G available. A 64G 6s should work fine for me.

    Have we confirmed you can select video resolution? If we had a choice I will shoot video in 1080p and not 4K.

    I am going with 64gig what I have now and have about 5 gigs free. I have movies and stuff I watched months ago I need to remove. I don't care about live photos, and also wont take 4k video since I have no way to view them. So I don't suspect I'll have any issues.

    Do you really keep 10gb of photos on your phone?

    I bet it will be similar to the way you change the slow-motion video from 120fps to 240fps.

    Now that I'm a very happy Apple Music subscriber, I don't need to keep 50 GBs of music on my phone. However, I will shoot a lot of 4K video and take a lot of pics, although I don't have a problem off-loading that content onto my computer once a week or so.

    I have a 64 GB 5S now and I'm wondering if I can get away with 64 GB on the 6s+ or if I should go with 128 GB. I don't mind spending the extra $100, but if I can save money, it would be nice...

    Just about decision time! Keep those opinions coming!

    I would still go for 64GB even if 32 was the base model. I find 32 is still limiting for my usage, 64 seems to be the sweet spot if I want my Music collection with me.

    Plus, I do keep lots of photos and videos.

    If you have to think about it, get the 128. The last thing you want is to have to manage it.

    I have a 5s so I believe I am stuck at 120fps. I don't see how to change it on my phone.

    Was always getting 128GB anyway to be honest.

    Where it says "120 fps" you just tap it, and it will change to 240 (6 or newer)

    I have the 64GB 6Plus right now and probably will be sticking wit the same combo for the 6s. I use iCloud Photo Library and my only complaint is that there is no way to keep photos and video COMPLETELY in the cloud. I have unlimited data, so I wouldn't mind having less space occupied on my phone.
