    Let's say worst case you lose $100. Does that really matter over the course of a year?

    You very rarely get your storage money back in resale.

    And the pictures won't be bigger in size right? Than again 128 is a pretty good size.

    People buy used phones to save money. It's just how it is. :) You probably get about $40-50 back for every $100 spent on extra space.

    Bc the larger/more expensive the model, the less "return on investment" you'll get. You can't buy phones this way though; they aren't investments.

    Get the phone that fits your wants and needs best. Period.

    I'm still debating on the 7 + 128 or 256.. I have the 6 + 64gb now and always out of space. I have a ton of pictures, videos, apps etc. If I setup the new one from my backup I'm already using about 64gb so its not like I have a free 128gb to use. Paying that much for a phone is painful though. Always been able to do a 2 year contract upgrade price for cheap and still have att unlimited

    I'm debating 128 or 256. 128 seems like enough now, but wondering if and how the 2-camera setup on the 7 Plus will increase photo file size.

    I am thinking of going from 6s+ 64 GB and I run out of space all the time, so thinking of going to 256.. especially considering I don't delete photos/videos and now with RAW image, I am thinking I might go over 128.

    Unless you think new camera and new specs will somehow inspire you to download/take 30GB more apps/videos.
