    when will I see this speed difference on my phone compared to 128/256 model?
    Odds are you will NEVER see it.. it will have little to no effect in day-2-day use. Exceptions may be if you're down to under 1GB of space left on your device.

    I got the 256 JB only because that's all that was in stock. I would have gotten the 128GB if it was there but I wasn't walking out of there without an iPhone 7 Plus lol

    I'm upgrading from a 64gb iPhone 6s to the 7plus. Trying to decide between 128gb vs 256gb. I was thinking 128 is enough. Verizon is trying to sell the 256gb. Not sure if I need it or b/c other phone is back ordered until 11/30. Any advice?
    The 128 gig is necessary. After using the 32 gig and not having enough space for video I went back and exchanged for a 128 gig. The 32gig was locking up and no responsive since it was full from day zero.

    Yea I had a 32 GB 7 Plus and also went back and exchanged for a 128 GB like two weeks ago. I thought I could manage with a 32 GB but then I started taking more pictures and video than normal with the new camera and I plan on keeping this phone for two or three years before I upgrade again. So I figured spending the extra 100 for more storage was the way to go. I just wish apple would finally add a SD slot on their phones one of these days ha.

    If you plan to shoot a lot of 4K video and KEEP them on your phone, you better go with the 256gb
    But if you don't shoot much video, and/or transfer it off your phone from time to time, 128gb will work great.
    I'd stay far away from the 32gb if you like photos/videos

    It really depends on how you use your phone. I don't stream music and like to have all my music library on my iPhone. I also don't want to worry about deleting photos that I take, so for me I got the 256 G this time. I'm planning to take more videos now too so those files can be huge.

    I have my iPhone setup to my liking and have the 256GB JB. I'm not a person that downloads a huge amount of apps. I stream music from Spotify and have some playlists downloaded to the phone and as of right now I have 240GB still available. Just nice to have so much space and not worry about anything

    Anyone order a 256GB recently? I just ordered the 256GB MB+ yesterday and my shipping estimate is 11/28-12/19 No matter how hard I try, I can't wrap my head around how a company as large as Apple can't keep up with demand every single year. It seems to keep getting worse.

    I got 256 GB black, 128 might have been enough but didn't wanna wait too long.
    If you're thinking of 32gb, might have to consider this:

    Yes that is very important, we are regulary transffering 5GB videos from iPhone to PC...

    I have 128 and have 97 GB free. I don't Store music though since I use Apple Music and majority of my pics are in iCloud photo. I have 40 GB's of pics in the cloud and maybe only 10 of those 40 are taking space on my device. 32 would be too small for many except new iOS users. 128 is the sweet spot. I know many who got 256 but they got it because 128 was not available.

    I ordered 256gb JB+ on October 7, estimated ship date is Nov 30-Dec 15...fwiw I am in Canada- don't know if that makes any difference in shipping times. This will be my first iPhone and I can't believe I am going to wait for so long to get a phone.

    That's crazy. The day I returned my Note 7 back they had two JB 256GB sitting right in the Rogers store. This was just over a week and a half ago. I would have taken the 128GB if it was there but I couldn't walk out without a phone. Had to jump on that. Try checking Apple's site each day. You should get lucky

    I'd recommend 128GB minimum. 32GB just doesn't cut it these days. Especially with the size of apps and photos now increasing.
    32 gb cuts it with a lot of people. Just not folks on the forums. Music is the key. If you're gonna load up heavy with music, you'll need more than 32.

    THIS.

    The majority of users on this forum do NOT represent the majority of everyday users. As always, get what you can afford but 32 GB is fine for a lot of people.

    I had a 128GB model, but I traded it in on Friday for a 256GB model. I plan on keeping this phone for a year and I don't want to run out of storage. I watch a lot of videos and record a lot of video.

    Most likely will do the same thing. I actually had a 256gb version first, but couldn't make up my mind in Note 7 debacle and returned it. So I settled for 128gb. I still have 50gb left, but I think ill need more. So soon as one is available, I will be exchanging for it.

    My 32gb Matte Black is finally arriving today. Ordered from T-Mobile at the end of September. I wanna tear it open right away but am having second thoughts about 32gb. I haven't even used up 32gb on my 64gb 6S. If a 128gb were available today, I'd get it. Tired of waiting tho. First world problem. Please just decide for me.

    I originally got the 32 GB 7 Plus and ultimately exchanged it in for a 128 GB like a week or so after. Like folks here have said the 32 GB works for a lot of people (just not for the majority of folks that post on imore ha). It really comes down how you use your phone. If you don't take that many photos or videos and don't play a lot of music or have a lot of apps and games the 32 GB will be fine. In fact, I had most of my apps, games, and music the 32 GB and still had like 20 GB of space. But if you plan to shoot in 4K, take tons of pictures, play lots of games, or you just plan to keep the phone longer than a year, I would say make the jump to the 128 GB. I got the 128 GB because I sometimes shoot video on my phone and I am keeping my phone for at least two years before I jump on the next newest iphone. So it's nice to have the extra space for apps, games, music, photos, and videos. So it just comes down to how you use your phone really
