    I am. I know there is a market for it, but I was just curious how many others on here are also going 64GB.

    Once you get done with apps, e-mails/saved documents, maybe a game or none, photos, and add some videos and music, that doesn't leave much space. 64GB for me.

    Same, I'm using over 32GB of space on my 64GB iPhone 4S.

    I will be, since I'm losing my unlimited data on Verizon, it will be nice to have my whole music library and whatever podcasts I haven't listened to, plus several movies as well.

    Sticking with 32 here. Not worth the extra 100 bucks for me. I keep very little music on my phone these days with iTunes match and streaming services, and worst case I can load up on my 64GB iPad.

    Me! Preordering that the second it goes live! I have a 120GB music library and record a lot of concerts, so going over the 32GB in my iPhone 4 is easy and the 5 will have 1080p recording so it make sense to me. Now of course I don't always need all my music on me, but that's literally half what my music library takes up and a good portion of my songs are AIFF.

    64GB is one of my main reasons for upgrading. My current 32GB is at capacity. Every time I need to put a new album or app on, I need to remove something else. I've already eliminated 5,000+ songs so I can't wait to upgrade!

    Considering my touch only has a couple gig on my touch but not sure if I'd go 64, I was thinking 32.

    Even though I prefer not to spend the extra 100 for the 64 as I have to pay the early upgrade price, I will get it as i have so many apps, movies, pdfs, music, etc. I guess I could move the pdfs off the phone and just leave them on the iPad, but that only nets me 1 gig...kinda wished they came out with a 128GB phone. That would have been awesome.

    I'm really leaning towards it. Was really hoping they would surprise us and start at 32gb, but no luck. Don't like the idea of spending $400 on my next phone, but am down to 3.9GB free, so am really leaning this way.

    I have 32GB iPhone 4S now and I noticed ever since the camera got better, I used it a lot more for vacations. These photos take up space FAST.

    I am going with 64GB for the iPhone 5.

    Was thinking about it, but most of my content is on my iPad so I may just go 32 again.

    I wish they had some better mechanism for managing space. iTunes match is nice, but as you listen to more music it still takes up space, and you have to go through and manually delete things to make room. Would be nice if you could "favorite" some music, to keep it on permanently, and then have a set space for music and delete old stuff as new stuff is downloaded.

    I agree, it would be nice. As it is, I periodically go in and delete all music on the device and start over.

    I also load and listen to more things on Rdio these days just because it is easier to manage there.

    You can do that using "smart playlists". I have a playlist that contains all my 4/5-star rated songs, a playlist that contains the 250 most recently added songs (you can adjust the number of songs here to accommodate your available memory), and a static "iphone" playlist. I have set iTunes to sync only these playlists. This way I always have the recently acquired stuff and my favorites on there, and also can add stuff manually by putting it into the "iphone" playlist.

    I have 64gb on my 4s but rarely exceed 20gb.

    If that extra 1/2 inch on the iPhone5 actually makes movies "bearable" now, the 64gb is probably a no brainer.

    I like 64GB on the iPad for iMovies,
    but the iPhone is just a capture device,
    32GB is fine, just transfer off as needed.

    Me. I have 1.5g left on my 32g, and that's only because I deleted some stuff.

    Yep, i've got a 16gb iPhone 4 which has like 500mb left.

    The 1080p video recording/8mp camera will eat into storage faster too.

    This is why I stick with 16GB. Streaming services make it easy to save space along with DropBox.

    I had a 32 GB 3GS
    I have a 64 GB 4S
    I have a 64 GB iPad2
    If I get a 5, I will go with a 64GB
    If they made a 128GB version, I would get it

    My 4S & iPad are both full with music & movies respectively. I have a lot of media & I like to have as much of it as portable as possible.

    I have 7GB left on my 64GB 4S. Constantly pulling songs from iTunes Match just kills me. I have to have a LOT of storage.

    Considering a 32GB is actually a 28GB and 64GB is actually a 57GB, it has to be the highest capacity for me.

    Music and Apps alone would come to over the 28GB available space on the 32GB models by 1GB or so for me. And thats without all the HD video, pictures, etc. I also have £100 in credit to use up as well thanks to the awesome uni store gift cards.


    I also consider using iTunes match, but the stupid thing downloads the song every time you stream it, making it pointless.

    Similarly I'd use spotify if the app didnt suck and they had more music available. I refuse to pay so much for premium streaming when they lack so many artists.

    64GB for me, mostly cause of TV shows. Just 4 episodes of Fringe is 5GB :eek:, nevermind a whole season...

    I had a 64GB 4S, but I think I'll go with a 32GB this time. The only thing using my space at this point are a bunch of videos that I don't care about.
