Ordered the 64 gig space gray..wanted to get opinions if I shoulda got the 256 instead. Currently I have the 7plus 128 gigs and have available 116 gigs. Do you guys think I went with the right storage? Does this mean I should have 52 gigs of storage on the x after I update everything?

I did the same capacity as you. I’m only using like 20 gigs on my current 7 plus

Nothing like buying a $1,000 phone and being limited to 64GB. 256 is a no brainer.

we live in the world of high speed internet, 4k video, and unlimited mobile bandwidth. The fact that they still make a 64GB flagship device is a joke (also charging an arm and a leg for storage which is dirt cheap is even a bigger joke).

Same here using 105.87 free on my 128 (that includes the OS obviously) so 64 was plenty.

I use a ton of local storage so from my POV, you have chosen poorly.

But that's me. You may be fine with 64GB

Im with you. I am on a 32g 7+ now and nowhere near capacity. So for me I opted for just the 64. For the small price increase I probably should have went higher, but I just don't see myself using it. To each their own!

Maybe, for some people.

If most of your storage space is being taken up by pictures, the new format will take up a lot less space.

I have a habit of cloud storage plus deleting photos as I go, so I went with 64 GB and I think I'll be okay.

I think. :)
