    Only unless you have more content on your backup that the phone can hold. Media and such.
    But, you'll be told what can't fit whether you're doing the restore on itunes or icloud.

    Question: Was this an insurance replacement or something? Or you just find a cheaper phone?
    I ask since it's not of equal capacity.
