32Gb would probably be ideal but 16GB would suffice in this day and age with dropbox, google drive etc.
64GB is kind of overkill but to each their own... 64GB is the hardest one to resale unless you're willing to give a raw deal.
B. S. I just sold my two year old 4s for $425 within an hour of posting it on Craigslist. In this day n age of 1080p video and 8mpxl snaps, 2GB apps and 250-400mb magazines the extra storage comes in handy
The 64gb iPhone is probably the absolute worst in terms of resell value (if resell value matters to you).
Right now its hard to resell a 64gb iPhone 5 for $450-500(after eBay fees) or Craigslist.
But u can unload a 16gb iPhone 5 for $350-400 easy. So the extra $200 you spent on the 64gb won't net you the spread $200 when you sell. You will be lucky to get back $100 of the extra $200 you spent.
Again. B. S.
Completed iPhone 5/64 sales are at $650. They hold their value
This is bad info....I was able to sell my White Iphone 4s 64gb for $400 on craigslist about 3 months ago. Just keep it in a protective case and slap a screen protector on it. You'll reap the rewards when it comes time to reselling it. ALWAYS use Craigslist for maximum return. I had about 10 inquiries within 15 minutes of posting it on CL.
I ALWAYS buy the 64gb version. Considering I paid $400 for it w/ the discount from AT&T....I used the phone for 2 years....and sold it back for $400....I had the phone for free for 2 years.....You do the math.
Amen. I've done the same with every generation but my wife gets the hand me down and we sell the two generation old hardware. Never have I 'lost' money. iPhones in particular if you keep them in good condition maintain their value incredibly well.
To the OP. Congrats. Sounds like you got what you were looking for so that's what matters as far as this thread is concerned. However, too much BS in this thread about how much they're worth is ridiculous. As well, keeping your phone less than 80/85% full is always a good idea the way NAND and flash storage works
We've always purchased 64GB iPhones and iPads. It's not always a smart idea to stream or utilize cloud storage when the carriers charge such an exorbitant fee for data
