    Hey all,

    I currently have an iPhone 5s 16 GB and will be upgrading to the iPhone 6. I was hoping for some CONSTRUCTIVE insight as to whether I should get a 16 GB or 64 GB iPhone 6. I am set on getting the 4.7 inch model. Currently, I have good a amount of music, pictures, videos, and apps on my phone and it shows 8.0 GB still available. Can anyone think of anything (apps or otherwise) coming out in the next year that would make me need the 64 GB? If I upgrade every year is 16 GB going to be enough this round? Thanks. :)

    I would go 64. It's only $100 difference. And apps are getting larger and larger especially games. Pictures and video take up a lot of space too. Resale will be more with the 64. And if you got the 16 and ended up needing more space your out of luck. If you get the 64 you won't run into that problem as easily. Just my opinion.

    If 16gb has been enough for you so far, then it should still be enough for you.

    My thoughts exactly. For $100 more you get four times as much storage.

    The best deal is the 64GB.

    If you have to ask, you may want to get it. Better safe than sorry.

    Just pretend you're buying the 32GB and Apple is tossing you another 32 for free.

    You didn't buy the 528i did you? Why get the 16gb?

    Thanks for the info, all. I will most likely go with the 64 GB. :)

    Definitely go with 64. 16 will be filled up in no time. Apple actually did us a favor by getting rid of the 32 and dropping the price of the 64 by $100. Saved me $100, which will be paying for Applecare+.

    Definitely go for the 64GB. At some point you will need the extra space, and it's better to be stuck with too much space than not enough.
