    Question 16MB or 32MB what difference will I see?

    So I'm getting ready to leave Sprint and go to Verizon. Have a 4s on Sprint and love the phone, but hate the network (I know nothing new).

    Will a 32MB phone provide any benefit greater than just more storage space? I noticed on the 4s the more full it is the slower it moves. Is that just perceived or will having more space make the phone perform better?

    Thoughts?

    Just more storage space. That's all.

    Never had issues with 16GB but like they added space of 32 now.

    It won't perform any better to get the 32GB version. That being said I felt that 16GB was too small for me so I upgraded to the 32. With the 16 I always ended up with like 1GB left and I don't even have that many apps. Now with the 32 all is good.

    The amount of free space in the device has no baring on how it runs. The phone's use of its ram determines that. So, I'd say it was a mind thing, OP.

    Obviously you meant GB, but thinking about how terrible it would be to have a device with 16 or 32MB's worth of space was funny to me...and then thinking about how computers when i was young actually had these tiny amounts of storage made me feel old, lol!

    For somebody like me who won't even fill up a 16 GB model, anything higher would be a waste of money unless buying the 64 GB model is for bragging / status purposes.

    Thank you all for the answers. Surely I did mean GB! SeanHRCC, that typo makes me think about the first computer I was exposed to, the Sinclair ZX81 and it's 1k of standard memory.

    I think I'll save the $100 and go again with the 16GB model.
