    I'm planning to purchase the iPhone 4S sometime soon. I was leaning toward the
    16gb model for budget purposes, however a recent review from a very legitimate
    source stated the 4S operating system is a resource hog, taking up a good 7 gigs
    of space, so to absolutely go with at least the 32gb model. I wasn't planning to
    do this.

    This will be my first iPhone, coming over from a Blackberry, so I wanted to get
    some opinions from knowledgeable Apple afficianados if the 16gb capacity would
    suffice. I don't really plan to keep a lot of music or videos on the phone -
    mainly using it as a phone, surfing the web, for some game and information apps
    and storing some photos.

    Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

    Thanks!

    With apps, email and etc. installed, I've still got 12.8 of 16 left, so no, it doesn't use up 7, just for the OS.
