    Sorry but why can't you figure this out on your own?

    1.How many songs do you own or expect to put on your phone?
    2.Movies? Apps? Do you take a lot of pics/movies?
    3.Do you store a lot of info on your phone or connect with iTunes a lot?

    Use these and factor your needs. Ultimately NO ONE HERE can make up your decision for you as only YOU know what your needs will be. PLUS none of us know your financial situation.... PLUS ultimately it's YOUR MONEY, not ours. Not trying to be a jerk but only you know what's best for you and your pocket book.


    If you really want advice I say decide what you need and if you're within 3gigs get the next size up.

    You need the 128gb 5S. If not wait for the 256gb 6 - it'll fit your needs.

    LoL... and the hits just keep on coming!

    Sorry for the intrusion OP. Yes, from what you wrote 16g sounds plenty large enough. Good luck.

    The only problem is that the memory can't be upgraded/expanded... I only have apps & photos on my iPhone, but I'm currently using 17gb... And I only have 175-200 songs, 500 +/- photos, 3-5 short videos, and the rest is apps... My recommendation is to go with a 32gb...

    That still doesn't give us what we need to answer your question. How much do you have in the way of this content? How much do you expect your usage to increase?

    Photos, apps, videos and songs aren't all the same size. How much space does the content that you currently have take up?

    A 16 GB phone comes with 12.3 GB of free space on it right after you turn it on.

    If you already have an iphone or an ipod touch, you can estimate how much storage you are using now and see if it will all fit on the 16 GB.

    If you don't already have an iDevice, you can make some guesses as to how big the apps are that you want by going to the app store - it says how big each app is. A bit of searching will tell you how big typical photos are, and how much room videos take per minute. iTunes will tell you how big your music library is, or how big any given playlist is. Add up everything that you think you want, and then figure an extra 2-3 GB to store things like mail messages, imessages, contacts, and "other." If you come close to the 12.3 GB with just adding things up, then you should go with the 32 GB. If you come out under - at 6 or 7 GB or so - then the 16 GB iphone should be fine for you.

    Do you have a need or desire to save locally on your phone? Do you have iPhoto or something similar set up to sync your phone photos with your computer? Do you mind using Dropbox?

    I take a ton of pictures, but I still opted for the 16gb... my 4S was 16gb too. My phone syncs pictures automatically with iPhoto, and rely on Dropbox and Evernote for other types of storage.

    That being said, if you use a ton of games and apps and need to keep them on your phone, I am not sure how the 16 would hold up.

    Just my two cents.

    2000 photos and 100 apps ? The 64 gigs could not be enough (it depends on photos and apps size) ....
    With 200 photos, 70 apps and less than 200 songs my 16 Gb is almost full.

    Op, get the 32 gb, use it/load it up for 13 days, and then see how much free space you have. Then decide

    I think you should be good with 16gb if you don't plan on storing movies or songs on your phone.

    Yeah you should be able to figure this out on your own.

    Depends on amount of apps, photos, mobile videos, etc. 32GB should be a safe amount.
