    ... getting along?

    Happy with 64bg?

    Wish you had gotten 128gb?

    If you do wish you had gotten 128 ... why?
    For more movies? Games? Apps? I know Foreflight benefits from mondo storage.

    64GB is perfect for me. 32GB was getting a bit too little. 128GB is frankly too much and too expensive. 64GB at the price of 32GB iPhone is sweetness.

    Coming from a 32GB iPhone 5, 64GB is plenty for me. No remorse.

    If you store your photos and music the right way 64gb is more than enough! I would struggle with a 16gb with videos and pictures alone.

    I got the 64 but could have easily gotten away with the 16. 128 would have just been a pointless extra expense for me.

    Since I've been using itunes match and various other streaming/cloud storage services I find little reason to store much on my phone, although it would be a problem if I didn't have true unlimited data with no throttling.

    Super happy right now, got 7 big games on there, movies, tons of photos, still 20 gigs left! Although I did delete a lot of stuff while on 5s for the iOS8 update.. most videos are not there so.. I'll know in half a year. :D

    64GB is the right size for me. Not to small, not to large. Worth every dollar!

    Not to mention it's worry free against the NAND issue that's plaguing the 128GB variants!

    Had a 32gb 5S and never used it all, so the 64gb is perfect for me.

    Had a 16GB 5. Decided to get a 64GB 6 so I could carry more music on my phone. Nice to have additional space and not have to manage it all the time.

    So far 64GB is perfect for me. I also had a 64GB 5s and it worked fine. 128 would be too much for my needs.

    I'm happy with it. I have about 25gb left from music pics apps no videos. I thought of getting the 128 but that would have been way to much.

    32gb free on my 64gb plus. I could never fill a 128gb unless I wasted space.

    I had my 4s 16gb for three years and just max the memory out so 64gb is plenty for me.

    I got apps/pics/music and 7 full length Hd videos totaling 18gb for the movies.

    I still have 28gb.

    Unless I get very heavy into photos or something--64gb is plenty--

    Was a little hesitant on 128gb and wanted to see how well it did first year--

    I am ok with the 64GB. Haven't had issues yet. I tld myself I would get either 64 or 128, whichever I could find first. Happy to have saved the $100 honestly. I have about 28 gigs on there now. The only time this will be any level of inconvenient is when I travel (usually fly about twice a year) as I won't be able to load quite the media on there that I could have. Even so, a flight from LA to Boston is only about 6-7 hours. I could be watching movies from take-off to landing each way and be completey fine with storage.

    Coming from a 64gb 5, this 6+ is just right. At one point I did manage to fill my 64gb 5 but it was mostly with useless apps and a ton of music and movies. Once I deleted the useless apps and started streaming via LTE or Wifi, I've had anywhere from 15-22 gb free.

    Same goes for my 6+. Although with the time lapse videos I'm sure I'll fill it up quickly but off to the cloud those will go.

    Two apple stores today based online availability.

    The first one had a line way out the door. Like a launch day line.

    I was pissed. All these mother****ers should have their mother****ing phone already.


    I took a long ride to another one, playing with the ham radio on the way.

    All of a sudden, once I was there of course, (no line at least) they only had the useless Cook-should-be-ashamed 16gb models. With the 6 also being available with 128.

    But I had settled on the Plus.

    So, no iphone today.

    moved up from having 16GB on all other iPhone's

    and 64GB is perfect

    would have been fine on 32GB (still can't believe Apple made a 16GB, unreal)

    it's fun to just take tons of pics + videos with no worries!!

    Went to The Falls Apple.

    Disaster. Line WAY out the door. AGAIN.

    I called Dadeland Apple asking if they had an outrageous line out the door.

    They did.

    BACK to Wellington Apple. Which is a nice ride so it's ok. Playing on 10m all the way there, chatting with a guy in Texas.

    Couldn't get a grey. I didn't see it on istocknow anyway so no surprise.

    But I did get the silver 64

    And they gave me 180 for my 5 regular.

    Hung out and chatted at the set up table with a beautiful, pleasant blonde as I reset and set various things.

    All in all, a decent day.

    Took a while and various trips to the Apple store to settle on the Plus.

    But I'm glad :D
