    I got the 256gb because I know it wasnt the most sought after storage space. Already got my preparing for shipment notice from Apple.

    I'll stick with 128GB and make more use of iCloud storage, if need be. I can get 50GB of cloud storage for just $0.99 a month...

    Surely that wasn't the only reason to spend an EXTRA $100+, right?

    Oh of course not. I have quite a few trips planned in the next few months so now loading movies/tv shows on my phone along with taking photos/videos galore will be just fine. No worries about space. + it was only an extra 5 dollars a month.

    I also tend to think that the pictures that the 7 Plus, specifically, is going to take, will take up a lot more additional space for those that do a lot of picture-taking, no?
    I currently have 8 GB space of my daily driver, but then again, I've inserted a 128 GB SD card which i can dump all my movies, pictures and various other files onto without taking up any space. I think for some people there is definitely a need for a 256GB option. Especially those who love taking 4K video, since that will eat up your storage like there is no tomorrow.

    Sometimes I wonder who is going to run out of space with a 256 GB iPhone? Yeah, more space is better. You don't need to worry about storage and stuff. So definitely a good choice.

    I think there's gonna be many paying an extra $100 for space they'll never use.

    Yeah I think a lot of people got the 256 for no reason. A lot of people could of got the 32gb or 128. People paying extra money or even taking away from the people that actually need the larger gb

    I just checked both my 64GB 6S and 6S Plus and I have 43GB available. I never even bothered checking for the longest time. I'm surprised seeing as I use my phone to do a lot of stuff.

    I really just wanted the 32GB myself. I have a 32GB iPhone 6 with 21GB free. I did not need the 128. However 128 and 256 was the only Matte Black available.. because ***** me, removed the 32GB from my cart to look at something else, and I lost it. So I just tossed $100 away. Oh well, better resale or trade in for the 8.

    To me its the same price as it was last year for 128GB and since you can't easily or efficiently add more storage like you can on just about any Android device on the market you kinda have to get the most storage your budget will allow. So for me and my wife 256GB is the right choice.

    I ordered the 256 GB 7 Plus. My current 6 Plus has 128 GB and it is now down to 30 GB free. So the more the merrier, which is the general rule of thumb.

    Didn't Bill Gates said that before nobody will need more than 240K of memory on their computers?

    Exactly. Might as well have extra space if needed instead of deleting stuff for the extra space.

    Goodness! If you don't mind me asking what takes up all that space? I ordered a 128gb and I'm trying to figure out what I can do with the extra space. I still have 20gb left on my 64gb 6S Plus.
