    Dear Members

    I would like to upgrade my iPhone 5 64 GB to iPhone 5S
    I have found that since I have the iPad 128 GB, I have not used the iPhone to its full capacity
    I was going to get the iPhone 5S 64G but the price difference between the 16 GB and 64 model makes me think whether it is worth it
    As I have the iPad 128 GB , I wonder whether it would be a waste to buy the iPhone 5S 64 GB
    Perhaps some of you are in the same situation or gve me ideas of situations in which having both with high capacity would be useful

    Thanks

    Just consider how long you plan to keep the phone. Also, if you are heavy into pictures, music, videos etc. If you aren't really big on putting that stuff on your phone and you'll likely upgrade again before 2 years, I'd say 16 or 32 will be fine. If you do like to keep your media with you at all times and you'll hold into the phone for a longer period, I'd opt for the 64.

    Really it's better to have it and not need it rather than need it and not have it.

    Thank you for your helpful reply

    I checked the prices and the difference now is around £90 from 16 GB to 64 GB and it may be handy to get the one with extra storage

    I change iPhones every year, I sell them and get the newer versions

    what does the iPad have to do with your phone storage?

    I have both and here's what I say,

    If money isn't an issue, and you have the money to get the 64 GB 5S, then defiantly go ahead and buy it.

    ----------

    Exactly, if he has the money to guy it without being an issue, than it's better to have it than not if you have the money to get it.

    ----------

    64 GB will sell for more when you change iPhone's next year.

    Thanks I will get the 64gb, now I have to choose the colour !
    Thinking carefully, I am sure 64gb will be handy as there will be situations in which I won't have the ipad with me and I like playing music via Bluetooth with my Bose

    I always get 64gb, especially if you use video camera.
