Over time we see tech change. You wait and wait until you finally experience a retina display, and you notice how poor the other screens suddenly look. You never want to go back. Sometimes you can say to yourself. From next year on, retina, or at least 4k, monitors only. You wait and wait until you finally try out an ssd drive, and you notice how slow the older spinning drives are. You never want to go back, except for perhaps a second drive for media storage, backup, etc. But, you could say to yourself. From now on, ssd only. I have the same with system memory, once I moved to 64 bit, I wanted 64 bit and didn't see the need to limit my tech to 32, because now I can have 8gb ram, and boy does it perform nice on 8gb. And in a year or so I am sure 16gb will become the new standard. So I say to myself, when I get a new system, at least 8gb ram, and I want to be able to easily upgrade the ram as well. And I have the same with the phones. I waited until i could get a retina. And I waited until there was 64bit before I upgraded. And now I feel I am waiting until I can get 256.. oh wait, it's here! We all feel this day that 16gb storage is for facebookers, who don't do media stuff or play games on their phones. Or just business people who need a phone and the boss got the whole team the 16gb model. Stuff like that, but you and I would probably not get 16gb unless money really is the problem. And I will come back to that in a second. I now feel after going from 16 on the 4, to 32 on the 5s, and I now have 64gb storage on the 6splus, that I just don't want to go back to normal size - plus onwards! And I feel 64gb is the minimum. And what does apple do? Yep, take it away, make 32 the new 16. And 128 the new 64. So the next phone I get is 128gb, or better. And that's where this thread comes into play. If you are still here *waves* HI! Thank you for letting me explain my train of thought. Mentally, and financially, do I take this leap and skip the 128 and go straight to 256 and say to myself '128 is the new 16...'? This would mean I have to stop consider getting the 7, and wait for the 7s, giving me another 12 months to save up the extra money for the 256. The monthly fee might go up because the phone is a bit more expensive. I can't pay it outright, but the one time payment with my telecom will not be cheap. I would really have to save up. Do I go the easy somewhat affordable way, forget about 16,32,64 and stick to 128, and forget about the 7plus, or do I man up and enjoy what I have and make the mental and financial leap to 256, with 512 in our future for the 8s or 9, etc. If you are likeminded to me, and have these same sort of thoughts, I am curious to hear what you're thinking.
