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.

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.

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.
