    16-32-64. What storage option do you use and why did you choose that storage option?

    How is it working for you?

    32. Because i store normal data in it and it is more enough for me. The working progress is so nice. I haven't any issue until now.

    32 and I'm constantly deleting apps/videos to make room for more, and that's with iTunes Match streaming. Most of the storage on my device is for apps. They're just getting massive as the quality goes up.

    I'd get a 64 but I can't afford to/justify it in the budget.

    32 - I find it the perfect balance. I can store all my music when compressed (only around 2,000 songs mind, but I never listen through good enough speakers to notice the compression) and lots of apps, but still have 7GB free.

    I have the 32GB option. After 12 months I have just reached 21GB with photo's and video's etc. I doubt I would ever fill a 64GB unless I went crazy filming everything. :)

    I'm going with 32GB on the new 5S. I have the same on my current 5 and it's served me fine...still have around 9GB free so I see no neeed to take it up to 64. My fiancee has way less on her 4S and is going for the 5C 16GB in Pink. She manages with the 16 okay too. My only slight concern is Apps and just how much they will grow, but I'm not a big phone gamer...most of the space on my phone is taken up by music so 32 should be fine.

    A week ago I said 64. Now I'm thinking possibly of 32, mainly because iOS 7 is letting me stream music and videos without downloading them. The main thing I hated about using iTunes' cloud service was the requirement to download songs before playing them. But with this, I may not need the extra 32GB as much. I'm scooting by on 16GB with the occasional need to delete something and a complete lack of games on the thing.

    So right now I'm leaning 32 but considering 64. Had it been 64 and 128 at these price points, I probably would've been totally on 64 at $299.

    Reluctantly a 32 because of ever increasing app sizes even though I can't stand having to pay so much extra just for storage.

    That this is now the 3rd generation to have 16GB as its base is crazy.

    64 GB

    Too lazy to worry about culling apps and want space for video. Currently only have 12 GB free on 64GB 4s.

    16GB, it was my first iPhone and all I could afford at the time. I'll be getting 32GB when I upgrade.

    I've been using 32GB up until the point I owned the iPhone 4S - which I switched to 16GB and bought an iPad (32/64GB) - my main consumption device now.

    Always the largest. No option for expansion and there's no telling what future local storage needs may pop up for me.

    Very well. That said, YMMV as with any subjective matter. Decide based on your specific needs/wants/etc.

    I've always had the 32 but last year I decided to go with the 16 on my iPhone 5 but even with my iPad I'm at the max so it looks like I'm going back to the 32 with the 5s.

    I've always shoot for 32.
    The 16 is way too little after losing the few GB you always lose in a device. I tend to come in around 20-25GB. I'd have to actively add videos and apps I don't use to come near the 64GB.

    No kidding. I noticed that feature in iOS7 and I about messed myself. It seems to be basically like Spotify for the music you have purchased and synched. Still need iTunes Match to have iCloud access to your ripped songs.

    People were hoping for a 128GB phone but unless Apple sees sales of the 32 & 64 go up, that won't happen.

    I always wondered why people got the 64's but then after surfing online I realized that there is so much more you can put on your phone.

    With 16, you'll never see those pages and pages of apps that you see with the higher versions.

    • I cannot play music videos or movies

    • And I can't have lots of games or many podcasts

    Currently my phone is at capacity with all apps confined to a single page.
