    I'm considering purchasing a 16GB iPhone 4S. Can someone who has the 16GB please tell me how many songs, apps, photos, videos and movies they have stored on it and how much space they have remaining?

    Thanks,

    Lisa

    I can tell you this much owning a 32GB

    1603 Songs - 6.2 GB 128 AAC (which is smaller than mp3 and higher quality)
    22 Videos - 0.6 GB (all itunes music vids cept one 1080p 11 sec video(
    641 Pics - 1.64 GB (most taken with iPhone 4 not 4S)
    iBooks - 0.03 GB
    155 Apps - 3GB

    leaves 15.7 GB available .. I know you asked for 16GB users but I thought this may help introspect to what's on a 32 to help make a decision

    16GB

    7.6 GB available, 6.0 GB used

    Music- 588 songs
    Videos- Three 5 minute videos
    Photos- 316
    Applications- 58, including some larger games


    With all of this, I have not used half of my storage yet.
    If you have a lot of music, there is a great application called Mspot, which gives you 5GB of cloud storage for music. I have never had any issues with streaming, and you can set the streaming cache to "0", so none of the music is stored on your phone.

    Also, there is Google Music beta which is similar to Mspot.
    While there is no official google music application for IOS, gMusic is a great third party app that allows you to stream your music.

    If you have a lot of music and are worried about space, check out this thread.

    I have 16GB:

    72 Songs
    36 Videos
    1852 photos
    60 Applications

    Available 5.1GB

    I'm happy with this size because I have an iPod touch as well that has 3800 songs plus videos, applications and pictures. Its 32GB and I still have 13GB left.

    I'm still breaking mine in lol...

    0 Songs
    3 Videos (About 5 minutes worth, I make small videos I can MMS)
    300 Pictures
    34 Apps

    Available: 11.5GB

    I expect to add quite a few more apps and a LOT more pictures. I may add some music but it has to be something I like to listen to all the time. I have Netflix on my phone so my kids watch that mostly, though I may add a video or two to my iCloud for any emergency kid tantrums.

    I want to thank you for your expertise. Great info! Going to purchase the 4s even though the new 5 is available. I just like the 4s durability. Sorry that Apple didn't continue with the 32 or 64gb once the 5 came out.

    It's durability? Please explain.

    The iPhone 5, like the previous models, come with 16, 32 & 64 GB storage capacity. Apple - iPhone 5 - Compare specifications between iPhone models.

    Yes but once the 5 came out, the 4S was only available in 16GB.

    I have about 300 songs and currently about 500 photos and a jailbreak on mine. I'm fine on storage space.

    I currently have 27 non-Apple apps, 11 games, 51 photos (mainly wallpaper images) and 5 songs that I recently bought. I won't ever use 16 GBs of storage on my iPhone.

    Welcome to iMore! Generally speaking, installing one 24mb app isn't going to be an issue.
