    When it comes to storage, more is always better... If you want a device with resale value, you'll always do better to have more than 16GB.

    Agreed. Particularly if you're going to keep the phone for a while, just get the bigger storage.

    I would go with the larger storage especially if you take lots of pictures or want to have a lot of games on your phone. You don't want a new game to come out and not have enough space or be on a trip somewhere and not have enough space for some cool photos!

    I have a 6S plus 16Gb, it is do able if you don't use a lot of video or dump to a iMac like i do, i also stream music. I have 43 apps my last 2 years photos and have about 3.5gb left. I picked it up cheap for $500 AUD, Gold though which i am not 100% sold on. I have a nice Black Vaja Agenda case i am not willing to give up yet so will be sticking with the 6S plus if the 7 is different. May even sell and get a Space Grey 64GB.
    64GB is the sweet spot if buying new.

    My issue is I keep a reasonable scaled down grouping of my pics n vids on phone...currently just over 6000, from 1976 to present..I uploaded them to iCloud Photo Library and use that now to bring down the optimized versions to phone. Otherwise that would take about 40gb of space. I also like to keep around 7 of my HD movies on phone, which obviously takes about 28gb...it's all based on usage preferences and budget..I keep phones for at least 3 years cuz Apple does a good job of FW updates and supporting their models, plus I can't justify spending that money every year for a new one..so I go biggest when I do..next one will prolly be ip8s+ 2tb...lol

    I have an iPhone 6s Plus 16 GB. I have 40 apps and I just have used 7,8GB of my storage. I'm okay with it. I'm just a regular guy, I have music, social media, I'm a student and I don't have too much photos nor games. I just have the basics. But I always wonder if I didn't buy a 64GB IPhone!! More storage means more freedom and you don't have to always check your storage worried about if it's almost full you know.
    My first option was a regular 6s 64GB, but i wanted the plus model, so for the price of a 64GB I could have a 16GB Plus model. Unfortunately.
    And this is my first phone and iPhone by the way.

    Well, I assume we have a bit of an age gap then.. Being first phone.. I'm over 50 and have had 2 kids grow up.. Folks like us take lots of pics and vids over the years. How u use it depends a lot on where u r in life also.. Hope u like ur 6s+! It's the best IMO...

    You should

    As the longer you stay with iPhone , the more data you need to store with your device
    That's the case with any phone really, not just iPhone.. It's all based on what u do with it. If ur a heavy gamer with huge game apps, or if ur like me and take lots of pics and like to keep many movies onboard, u need to think ahead and plan storage size.. Yeah, smaller storage is a bit cheaper, but bigger storage will last u longer! I've got the 6s+ 128gb. I woulda got a 256 or 512 had that been available.. I'm betting the 7 will have a 256 option, but this one will last me for a few years! Maybe by the time I'm ready to upgrade again you'll be able to get a 1tb...lol

    More storage is always better. But then you're getting a better display, OIS and an amazing battery life with the 6s+

    You're right. It depends on the person and on his or her lifestyle. Today I just need the basic but maybe my mom needs a 128 GB iPhone in order to keep all the photos she takes always with her. Mostly videos.

    Yes it does... I use iCloud Photo Library now, and optimize it. That takes 6gb so far. If I did full size pics/vids it would be around 40gb so far.. Better camera means bigger file size.. I also keep 8-9 HD movies onboard.. That's about 40gb.. Space goes fast...

    For me I don't want to question ever if I have enough space on my phone to keep or download something. I don't want to store things in various places to save space. I have a 64 gig and it's the perfect size.
