    Hi hi and good morning.

    I am in the market to purchase the 6 or 6 plus but a bit torn on the space that I need.

    I have always had iphones over the yrs. But never paid attention to how much space I used.

    My current iphone5 is a 32gb model BUT I am only using 8gb of the 32gb currently. I don't use the phone for movies or tv shows. I put some music on the device. And of course photos as well. I do have quite a few apps or maybe somewhere in the middle of not many and a lot.

    Based on my useage do you think 16gb is enough.

    Thanks for your thoughts. And I realize I am the only person to ultimately know.

    If you only use 8GB on your iPhone, buy the 16GB version. If not get 64GB.

    Managed to reserve a 64gb iphone 6 a few minutes ago.

    Doesn't mean I have to purchase :) I will go see what size is best.

    Just not sure an extra .7 of an inch is enough coming from my 4 inch screen on the iphone5.

    But also have to take in the technology advancement from iphone5 to 6.

    Thanks for everyones input

    I wouldn't go for a 16GB phone/tablet these days. However, that is my preference. For someone else, 16GB could be plenty of room.

    With no music or photos, my phone only had 2GB available on the 16GB phone... certainly not enough for me.

    I guess if you are asking and you already find yourself only using 8 on your current phone, I think it's safe to say that 16 is enough

    16gb is a joke. Minimum 64, best 128 if you want to not be crippled. Think of hi-Rez pictures, movies, 240 frame per second slo-mo. Now add a few games and movie/ music and you hosed wig only 16gb.
