128 vs Apple Care Plus
I was considering two new iPhone 6 Plus in the next few days (one for me, and another for my father). Both of us were considering the iPhone 6 Plus 64 GB then I thought of getting the 128 GB later which is 100$ extra and transfer the Apple Care Plus from my current iPhone 5S to the iPhone 6 Plus but Apple said that's not possible.
Currently I am living in Qatar (Middle East / Arabian Gulf region). I have the iPhone 5S with Apple Care Plus bought from Apple US last year. I have the 32 GB one with about 21 GB left.
I use my iPhone 5S mainly for contacting others, chatting and browsing the internet. I do have Apple iWork on it, Evernote and PDF scanner that I kind of rarely use as I do this mostly on my iPad Air. Regarding music, I stream it and rarely download any on my phone.
Why I am not downloading games or watching movies on my iPhone 5S? Probably because the screen is too small, or maybe because of the battery or maybe I just like AirPlaying them from my Mac or PC to my Apple TV at home instead to watch on a big TV.
So I don't really know if my usage pattern will differ on the iPhone 6 Plus, but if it doesn't I don't think I even need 64 GB, but since that's the only option other bigger than 16 so I might go with that.
Apple Care Plus doesn't work in Qatar of course, but I do travel once a year to the US, my dad could go once or twice more, which makes the Apple Care Plus kind of useful although I didn't need it yet for my iPhone 5S, but again I believe the iPhone 5S is much harder, I have seen some iPhone 6 Plus drop tests and they are really painful which makes me really worried something would go wrong with it.
I rarely drop my phone, and by rarely I mean once or twice a year, but again I have seen in some videos a 6 Plus dies on first drop which scares me even more.
So I kind of need your help, should I go 128 with basic warranty, 64 with Apple Care Plus or just 64 and keep the extra 99$ for a PS4 game and few iOS apps?
