    I went to verizon today to buy a Iphone 5 16Gb and the lady was trying to talk me into getting a 32gb because she claims that photos take up a massive amount of space compared to the Iphone 4.

    I really only use my phone for standard apps and photos, texting...
    In a year I take only roughly 500 photos.. I really don't feel a 32gb is necessary for my needs but I just wanted to make sure and get some feedback from other Iphone 5 users.

    Thanks for your time and efforts.

    Depends,a photo taken by the iP5's camera will average around 3mb,so you can calculate by this.

    I have about 3000 total pictures on my 32gb iPhone 5 now (about 750 of those are from the iPhone 5 itself) and with all of my games and the occasional video I take, I am now finding myself at 1gb of space free. I'd rather have the option of deleting apps and having a bunch of space for pictures, but then again you can always just put your photos on a hard drive for backup, and then delete them off the phone :)

    Yep, that's what I did on my 64GB iPhone 5 and I have 12.9 GB space remaining :D.
