I'm currently still using my iPhone 4S 16GB... While I get by through constantly deleting apps I no longer use as well as deleting videos I don't plan to watch anymore.... I'm thinking maybe I should get iPhone 6 with a bigger storage in order to be able to comfortably download a ton of apps, as well as download a ton of music and videos. How many would be enough for me? 8GB 16GB 32GB 64GB or 128GB???

If available I'd pay the extra and get 128 gb.
A 128 gb 5.5" iPhone might be able to replace my 64 gb iPhone 5S, 160 gb iPod Classic, and 16 gb iPad rMini.
I'd sell the 5S and iPad, and the IPod Classic would live on in my car.

If the 16GB was the full 16GB, it would've been just enough for me. I take a lot of pictures and videos with my iPhone 5 and I need to delete photos and videos every now and then, because I'm running out of space. As photos and videos are getting so much bigger with every increase in MP size, I think that with the iPhone 6 16GB can never be enough for me.

So 32GB it is, even though the increase in price with Apple is unexplainable! The OnePlus One showed it best (16GB €269, 64GB €299)

As little as possible. If they had 4 GB I would take that. I have everything in the cloud and music is streaming. I have data everywhere and plenty. Did not think people still used that much local storage.

Definitely 32, I'm always deleting pictures, apps and the like and even though I'd only use about 19-20GB, it's good to have that buffer.

I always get the max so 64 or 128GB. No need to worry about it, then.

The money is not an issue.

That makes both of us. I'm still getting a 16gb though. I have an 80gb iPod for music. Play games on my console, don't take many pics or videos with my phone, use a slr for important occasions, delete apps I don't use for months like kayak, autotrader etc.

For me it depends on the screen sizes. If there is a 5.5" model I'll probably go 64GB as I doubt I'd really use my mini anymore. When I was using a Note 3 I personally didn't see a need for a tablet anymore.

If it's a 4.7" I'll probably just go with a 32GB.

Apps take up local storage. If anything people are probably using more local storage, since most cellular plans aren't unlimited anymore. It's not really feasible to stream a lot when you are out and about if you are on tiered data.

I've always gotten 16gb and been fine with that. However, I've started having to delete apps and dump photos onto my MacBook in order to free up space, so I'll probably go with the 32 this time. Hopefully that is the base model, but if not, oh well.

32GB again

Dropbox, iTunes Match, and Unlimited data have eliminated my need for additional storage. I could probably even get away with a 16GB at this point but I like having a lot of my pictures stored on the phone.

I've had an 8gb iPhone 2G and iPhone 4. The iPhone 5 was a nice jump up to 16gb. At this point, I've discarded a point and shoot camera in place of the iPhone. I'd have to go 32gb or bigger at this point.

you'd have around 2gb of storage for apps, documents, cache, messages, you'd run out of space so quickly
