    Default 16, 32 or 64GB?

    I am new to the iPhone world and wanted some suggestions on what size to get. I have had 3 different android models all with 16GB of storage, mainly because that is what was offered. Is the 32GB (or 64) worth the extra $$ ?

    i have no need for a ton of storage with that said im still going with 32 just in case. 64 is going to be for someone that want the whole music collection. i stream most of my music.

    you can read over this thread or search the forums for more infohttp://forums.tipb.com/iphone-4s-for...what-size.html
    IMHO the 16 should be enough for most users and that is what i am getting. I have a 32gig iPad but i keep a couple of movies on there for the kids and my whole music library on the phone i will only keep my active playlists for the gym and other events i don't need that much music with me at the gym or beach. if i do i can take the pad. not to mention with i cloud i can delete stuff and sync ota. If you feel the need to keep a large music and movie library with you and a few thousand photos then the 32 or 64 maybe but i can't justify the price with cloud (and some similar google services) available.

    I'd suggest you get 32. 16 might be enough for most, but you have to remember that you cant change (unless you buy another one, of course) the size once you've bought one, and to eliminate that kind of regret, you should go get yourself a 32gb.

    It depends on what you want to store on the device really. For me its mostly music and apps. Maybe a tv show here and there but i dont like watching videos on such a small screen so i watch them on my tv and if you have a device that can do airplay i would suggest a higher spec device but outside of that i would say the 16 gig fits fine. I use alot of apps and have some music to store so 16 gig was perfect. If you plan on taking tons of video in HD and pics then i suggest the 32 or 64. And same goes for storing movies and tv shows. They eat up alot of space.

    i am wondering the same thing. I have heard some comments of getting the 16 because of icloud but do movies upload to icloud? I want to use my phone for pics and video so I too am wondering if 32 is enough with icloud?

    No, no 8 GB version. I'll be getting a 32 GB. Especially because of the camera/videocamera. I also tend to collect apps...

    32GB most definitely...although I'm starting to question my own need for such given the iCloud.

    I can see 32GB being the most popular. I myself would be budget oriented and only get a 16GB with the return of my iphone4 i bought a 1 week or so ago. So can only pay $200. But since I'm exchanging I will only be paying a restock fee. I think alot of people waiting in line on the 1st or 2nd day will be getting whats left rather than what they want. I'm sure the 64's will have better availability at $399 with rebate.

    If I decide to pick up the 4S, I'd get the 16GB version as I never put any music or movies on my phone.

    I'm going with the 32gig 4s. I have a 32gig 4 now and it has a bunch of movies and music on it with 10gig free. For me, 64 is overkill and not worth the money. I thought about the 64gig because of the sweet camera, but the pics will be pushed to my mac pro so i won't need to keep a ton of pics on my phone, just a select few.

    32 white for the first time(color). Still do not know why you would ever need all that room. Come on really do you need all that music. I have like 500 songs 1200 pics and 150 apps and still 13 gigs of room left for random stuff. Usually use my iPad for movies.

    I'm really on the fence here guys, I won't be watching movies and certainly won't put my entire iTunes library on the 4S but I do plan to play a few games, take pics. Is 16GB enuf for a first timer?

    I currently have a 32GB, and I have about 2GB left on it. Of course, I have also downloaded over a thousand apps, and have about a hundred on my iPhone right now (waiting to be reviewed...yes, I know!).


    I will probably go for the 64GB, simply so I don't have to worry about space.

    16GB is more than enough if you don't use it for movies storage. I have an 8Gb now and I still have like 1Gb left.

    Right now I have the 16 gig i4 but will be upgrading to the 32 GB. I still have 6 GB left on my old phone but it is lagging a bit at times so I figure the faster processor combined with the extra space will make the new phone purr like a kitten.

    I will be getting the 16GB. I don't ever run out of room but I don't put a lot of stuff on my phone. Plus with iCloud I won't even bother to give the 32GB let alone the 64GB any thought. But that's just me :3

    I voted 16GB but may very well end up getting a 32GB. I used a good portion of 16GB's when I had my iPhone 4 so may need the extra room!
