    64 seems enough. 128GB to me at least seems overkill but what do you gentlemen think?

    Actually 16GB is more than enough.

    Seriously though, without any context your question is meaningless.

    I ordered 128GB and my wife and daughter each order 64GB. I tend to keep a LOT of stuff on mine and have occasionally hit the 64GB limit on my iPhone 5. My wife and daughter are both coming from 16GB so 64GB seems huge to them.

    Uh, how much stuff do you want to put on your phone? If it's over ~57GB, I think you know what to do.

    Not sure how this analogy works. 64GB == Ford and 128GB == Lamborghini? In what way?

    Grab the 128 if you don't mind spending more. Easy.

    I went with 6 plus 64gb. I did a 64gb in a 4S, and never filled it. 32 was good enough for me. I use iTunes Match, so none of the music is stored on the device.

    I am looking forward to having more space, but am surprised Apple didn't up the entry level device from 16gb to 32gb.

    Only you can answer this question for yourself. Some people don't need much. Others of us need tons. I'm constantly having to delete things off my 64GB phone to keep from filling up. I am soooooo waiting for Friday to get 128GB. :D

    128GB. I paid for my phones with a single option I traded the other day.

    God, I love Apple. :D

    The 64GB replaced the 32GB version for the same price. That gives you more for your money compared to the 5S. I wouldn't get the 128GB because I don't think I would ever fill it up and it's too expensive.

    128 if you're a music, photo or video nut. I'm getting 128 for music since it'll allow me to not have to compress my 320 mp3s and WAVs which in itself takes several hours to do.

    I think you'll be able to fit more crap in the ford than the lambo so other way round.

    64gb. Then use the $100 you saved to take your parents out on a surprise dinner at a fancy restaurant. Not Taco Bell.

    I think no one can answer your question unless you, what should get 64gb or 128gb, thats depend upon thinking of people some need more storage space in their device and some comfortable with only 16gb. i think i want to go with 64gb.

    Well, I was going to get 32GB but they replaced it with 64GB so I was like, for $100 more I could have 128GB and start to use my 6+ as a media device on the go. I can now store TV shows and movies and watch them on my downtime :)

    Go with the 128GB if you can afford the extra $100.

    I ordered 128, but if I had to do it over, I would get 64. Oh well.

    I would say 64GB but it really is down to your own needs.

    16GB is pretty useless these days, ios and apps are getting bigger and don't forget you don't actually have 16GB of storage. Plus iphone 6 has a better camera so file size will no doubt be increased.

    32GB would be the minimum

    64GB might be slight overkill but at least you have plenty of space if needed

    ----------

    The reason they dumped the 32GB and not the 16GB.
    They know 32GB is a sweet spot. People need more than 16GB but can manage with 32GB. They would of lost lots of sales with people not upgrading the storage if 32GB was the base model

    My thought process went like this:

    I have 200GB of iCloud Drive storage now, I can use iCloud Photo Library, and I use iTunes Match + Spotify for my music needs. Those are the two big storage uses that I think I and most others see on their devices (pictures/videos and music). I also have an unlimited plan, so utilizing cloud services isn't going to cost me an arm and a leg.

    That being said, I could get by with 16GB. But what about that random vacation where I'm not connected to any networks to upload my pictures and videos? What about a special occasion (kid's birthday, weddings, etc.) where I need to record 1080p video for an extended period of time? That's GBs of space! What about plane rides where I want to load up some 1080p movies now that the iPhone 6 has a 1080p screen?

    So, could I get by day-to-day with 16GB of space? Probably, and it wouldn't take a ton of management. But what about the unplanned times when I could use some extra space? Is $100 worth it for the peace of mind? For me: yes.

    I purchased a 64gb 6 for my wife and 128gb 6+ for me, i think it might be overkill but at least it is there if we need it, especially since I am now on a 4gb shared plan, so downloading of wifi apps or anything is going to cost me if I went with less.
