    Does anyone know how much space movies taken with the new camera will take up? I know it depends on how long they are so pick a reference point or something. Approximate picture file size would be nice too.
    The reason I ask is because I want to get an iPhone 3G S but I am unsure of what size to get and I don't want to spend $100 more for 32Gb if I wont use it.

    How much music do you have? How many pictures do you plan on storing? Are you going to store your pictures at full size/quality on it? How often do you plan on taking video? How many apps do you plan on using?

    If it helps you...
    I have a 16GB (14.64GB real storage) phone with...
    5.84GB Music - 931 songs
    2.06GB Photos - 3,268 photos
    1.25GB Apps - 74 apps
    256.1MB Other (emails, txts, etc stored on the phone)
    NO videos

    5.3GB is free

    Photos taken on the current iPhone are between 300 and 500 KB each.
    No one knows for sure how video will be on the phone, since it hasn't been released yet.
