    Hi guys.

    I've already pre-ordered my iP5.

    But i'm curious as to how much space a 1 minute 1080p video recording, off the iphone takes up.

    This will provide an easy reference to those who wish to store their camera roll on the iPhone 5s for a longer period of time.

    As such, it may help those who are wondering the 16gb 32gb or 64gb model?

    Thanks a lot :D

    1 min of vid I think takes up about 140ish mb on my 4S. (16gb)

    I wish wish wish I'd gone for the 32. and I won't make that mistake again. Apps are getting big.

    for those who got the 16gb. don't regret it. even though if there is a 128gb version it's still not enough.

    the best way is to manage your space. do u really need to keep all the recorded videos in your phone? it will take a long time to backup your iphone in itunes, especially if u'r using macbook air with limited ssd space.

    i always keep the recorded videos in my mac, and use airvideo to stream it to my phone or my ipad if i want to watch them.
