    I'm not sure to get the 16GB or the 32GB iPhone, I don't keep music on my phone and my Apps don't take up much room, but I was wondering how many hours can say 8GB of video get?

    I think I read somewhere it takes about 45 min per GB. Not sure how accurate that is though.

    Too many variables to give you a solid answer as it all depends on the video format.

    The iPhone supports many formats.

    Most of my iPhone movies are 700mb to 1 gb. Live Free or Die Hard and Meet Joe Black are my larger videos resting around 1 gb.

    I took a 42 seconds worth of a video (highly detailed with sunlight, multiple colors, etc) and got about 4.1 MB out of it, THAT IS when I compressed it and emailed it via Wi-Fi. . So basically multiply the seconds by .1 and you get your MB. I have yet to extract a file directly and see what it's like.
