    If you have the bucks, I think its the best deal out there.
    And also when you go to sell it (of course you will), nobody's gonna give you a penny for 8gigs after a year!

    Very, unless you really do not listen or watch any media. Then get the 8.

    One of the chief reasons I am upgrading, because there doesn't seem to be many...also for the better audio.

    if you need it yes. if you don't, then no.

    and I echo Apple Ink. in a year's time, it will be more difficult to sell your 8GB iPhone in a year's time.

    Well the only reason I am upgrading is better audio, and I am sure that apple made some other changes. They just don't know us to know that.

    Well I am thinking to get 16gb, just because it's probably will be so much easier to sell it next year, when iphone v3 will came out.

    The other problem is that I still didn't decide which one I am geting .. white or Black.

    No, but $100 to change the color to white...THAT's worth it!

    100.00 for 8 extra gigs, is reasonable. I will need the extra for all the app I plan to have.

    I was popping for the black 16gb, but decided to hold off and just get the 8gb as of now. I figure Apple will have a new verison out in one year or atleast have a 32gb out in Q1 2009.

    I will manage and just put only 1 or 2 movies on the phone for now.

    I'm going for the 16 because I'm completely out of space on the 8 and now I will be using the Apps Store some and probably putting more music on it.

    I have no problem getting the 8gb, but selling it later is my only worry. :/ For that reason, I may get the 16 if it's there. I'd get the white, only to sell. I don't want to carry a white phone, but I think it'd sell well. Especially to our friends across the pond ;)

    8GB was enough for me the last time around, but does anyone think that the availability of the App Store (and all the apps/games I will be downloading) will take up enough space to warrant an upgrade to the 16GB?

    Most apps will be less than 10mb. I don't think you should go up to 16gb just for apps though.

    Of course. I would pay an extra $200 for 32 GB.

    I guess one other option to the poll--undecided. But this is a perfect thread to help me decide.

    Resell value alone makes it worth the extra $100.00... plus I want to make sure I have enough room for the Apps that will start to come later.... I think we have even touched on what will eventually be avaiable..

    with the potential for app's to take up to 2GB of space the 16 Gb is the way to go.

    I already carry over 10 GB of stuff in my 40 GB iPod (4th gen, click wheel), so it's a no-brainer for me. Besides, the iPod Touch in 16GB is $100 MORE, and isn't a phone!

    Exactly why I got 16GB. I plan on having this phone for a while and there might be an app that I need that takes up 2GB of space.

    16 GB is the way to go if you can afford it. The apps store just started and there are going to be plenty of apps to come in the future... never knowing how big those apps might be 16GB is the safer bet.

    I must have missed something. How is the audio better on the 16GB iPhone as opposed to the 8GB iPhone?

    From the Apple iPhone technical specifications:

    Audio

    • Frequency response: 20Hz to 20,000Hz
    • Audio formats supported: AAC, Protected AAC, MP3, MP3 VBR, Audible (formats 1, 2, and 3), Apple Lossless, AIFF, and WAV
    • User-configurable maximum volume limit
