Because the base model should be 32GB at that same price, as they are making a killing off their storage tiers as it is... is where I believe most people are coming from. Make a base model, priced at the current base model price, be a little bit more realistic to what consumers need for when they purchase from the AppStore and iTunes (yes, more money for you, Apple) and take higher MP pictures. I believe a base model at 16GB could be made available to businesses, but consumers should have access to a base-priced iPhone that comes with more than 16GB. The 16GB phone should come with a big warning sticker for consumers that might not be savvy enough to help them understand that it's probably not going to be enough for them.why are people complaining about the 16gb? if you don't want it get the 64gb... duh.
Because it's a damn computer that can also make calls (if feeling social apparently). If you just want a phone you don't need any GBs.16's more than enough, i've never gone past 60% capacity i don't understand why people need 64 and 128 on a damn phone, there's just no need.
those are the ones that stay glued to it and are anti-social imo
Because it's too small for all but the lightest of users. A lot of customers would be just fine with a base 32 gig (which would cost Apple a couple of bucks more), but end up ponying up an extra $100 for the 64 gig.What's wrong with the 16?
I completely agree. Now that 2 major carriers (TMobile and Verizon) aren't offering subsidized plans anymore, and 1 major carrier (AT&T) is heavily heavily marketing only their non-subsidized plans, it's likely a minority will be actually paying that advertised subsidized price. Not to mention the rest of the world where this nonsense doesn't exist.It's time to show real prices and not contract prices.
