Especially if I end up selling my iPad Air and J1 camera, I am considering the 128GB model -- especially since I filled up 64GB on my iPhone 5. Still, I found on the 5S I can do fine with 32GB if I delete apps I don't use. I'm a little torn between 64GB and 128GB, but I don't think I'd have many issues with 64GB. If I had 128GB I'd probably store a bit more music on it but for now 64GB may be fine.

An hour of recorded video should take up approximately 8GB, if that helps anyone's decision.

Who's getting the 128GB-- and why?

It seems likely for me that I'll be going 64GB now unless availability is less tight on the 128GB. In a year I could upgrade to 128GB if I needed to :).

128 because who knows what the hell i may need space for,

also, resale value will be higher.

Thought about it, but really its not necessary for me, chances are future iPhones are going to have higher MP with bigger photo size, then it will be more worth it getting the bigger capacity. Save money for the future, not just this first iteration Saphhire-less iPhone 6.

I've been waiting for 128GB for a couple of years now. My 64GB 5S is always full (right now it has 155MB free).

Can't wait!

I went 128GB, had a 64GB iPhone 5 and think I'd fill it within 2 years so went with the bigger one! Also the 64GB seems the most popular this year so 128GB should mean that I get it quicker!

Still keeping my iPad mini though :)

Yeah, in my experience with the 64GB 5 it should be $50-$60 more than the 64GB 6 models but probably not the full $100 difference.

I choose the 128 model because I like to have thousands of photos inside my phone, also a lot of music, a lot of apps and a lot of everything.

I like to keep some nice apps that were released since the first iphone but because space was always low I have to keep deleting info all the time.

It is the same like a hard drive even you have 3TB hard drive they are always full and you always need more space.

I think 64GB is much more enough for me Because my 50% memory for music its around 28GB and i 10GB for images and i don't watch videos in my iPhone so i never stored it in my device.and the main benefit is i save $100 in 64GB.:D

Between iTunes Match, iCloud Photos, and iCloud Drive, I can't even imagine what I'd use it for. I got the 64 GB but I would have only got the 32 GB if it was available. I do wish they'd have an optional RAW format for iPhone photos, I would use the hell out of that and it would require more space.

I am!

128GB - as apps are getting larger/1080p recorded videos are huge/music.

I was going to go for the 64GB last year, but the 128GB is the same price as last year. So why not?

I was trying to preorder the 64GB but if I'm camping out I'm going for the 128GB. I'm going to do my best to keep this phone for 2+ years.

I ended up with 128 because that's the only thing I could get to take on the store app on the morning of the pre-order opening. I was trying two browsers, an iPhone and an iPad to place the order and, after nearly an hour and a half, that was the first thing that finally let me proceed with the order. I had intended on buying a 64.

im sure i read somewhere that the iP6 video will be around 30Mbps, if its 60fps.
That works out around 15GB per hour of video, quite a lot!! :eek:

I ordered 128 because I was expecting to pay $400 to get a 64 again. Double the storage for the same anticipated price was a no brainier for me. I only have around 15 free on my current 64 iphone 5, so it's worth the piece of mind not having to worry about storage later.

I went 128GB. Will I use all 128? Likely not. But I've been wanting and needing more than the current 64.

I went 128. I currently have 20 mb free on my 64 gb iphone. I carry around an unnessarily large amount of music. I'm constnatly fighting for space on my phone. I used to be fine with a 32 gb phone....then i bought a 64 and though no way i'd ever run out of space.....i expect the same fromt eh 128 gb lol.
