    I have a 6S Plus with 64GB of storage. I am wondering if that is a good size for me. I have a little more then a week, if I wanted to return my phone.

    I don't game. I have to date, not watched a movie on a phone. I won't say I never will. To date, I have not made a video. Again, I am not saying I never will. I have about 1000 songs in iTunes Match, that could be downloaded. This might triple. Alternatively, I could download just what I might want for a few weeks. I currently have about 500 photos. That might grow to 1000 or 1500 over time.

    I have used 3.1GB of my free iCloud storage. I could purchase more if need be, but rather not.

    I also have a 64GB Air 2 iPad, if that any bearing on my iPhone storage capacity.

    Do I need more than 64GB for iPhone storage?

    I think for your use case 64GB is plenty. I have way more stuff then you do and I still have ~18GB left over on my 64GB iPhone & Air 2.

    How much space have you used so far?

    Personally, I'd suspect you'll be fine. Your needs sound similar to mine. And if I'm going to load something up with video files (like to watch a movie on a plane), it's going to be my iPad, not my phone.

    Sounds like 64GB will be good. I would not suggest less if you take any images of keep music on your phone.

    I have used about 7GB. If I downloaded all my songs in iTunes Match that would increase to 15GB
