    Default I just bought a 32gb iphone 7 and don't know If I made a mistake please reply!!!

    I bought an iphone 7 32gb and i don't know if I made a mistake, i bought it because i got it for a lot cheaper compared to the 128gb model. i don't download songs, movies or record or take photos. I just download lots of games. The biggest concern is It was recently found that the 32gb model is slower than the others. I am really upset and don't know what to do. I will receive it tomorrow or the day after if i cancel I receive it in 5 days if i order 128gb after canceling(it will cost a lot more). Please help i'm really upset. Should I cancel the order or keep it. Please reply!!!!

    Welcome to iMore!

    No need to get upset. The difference in speed would be negligible between the 32GB & 128GB. You as the average consumer would never see it. But if you are that concerned about it, then I suggest cancelling the 32 and ordering the 128.

    I wouldn't cancel it for speed reasons. It's still going to be plenty fast and I doubt you'll notice the difference. The only reason I'd cancel is if you're worried about the storage. Once you download all your stuff down, check your available storage. If you think you'll be fine with that until your next upgrade then stick with it. If you've got any doubts and can afford the higher model then go for it! You won't be disappointed.

    The 32 GB iPhone 7 is still one of the fastest smartphones on the market. If it hadn't come out there is a slight speed difference between models I doubt anyone would notice. If you're truly concerned then upgrade but I don't think you'll notice a difference.

    Unless your habit in regards to downloading songs, movies, or photos change, you should be fine with 32gb of storage for game applications. And like others said, I wouldn't worry at all about the speed because you will never notice it to be slow anyway. So just get your iPhone and enjoy it.

    A smaller amount of storage isn't going to make a phone slower. If you say, bought the iPhone 6 instead of the 7, yes, then you would have a slower phone.

    He says he downloads lots of game.

    Are games take a lot of storage?
    And what is a lot?

    I think you'll be fine with the 32gb. But if you can and have the money just cancel it and order the 128GB

    I don't think that the difference in speed will be noticeable. Also, 32GB should be enough for you. Enjoy your new iPhone

    If you can swing the extra $100 for the 128gb absolutely do so... 32gb is not much and it sucks managing memory on these devices (see pic below). Media (songs, pics, videos, etc) tend to eat up the most space over time and games/apps are hit/miss, some are tiny and some are HUGE... totally depends on the type of game/app

    There was a test done that showed the write and read speeds of the 32gb model was slower than the 128gb.

    To the OP: If you are coming from a 16gb and you are going up to the 32gb and have been managing it just fine I think you will be ok. You wont notice the speed, unless you think you will use up more storage I would go to the 128gb but because of the speed you shouldn't be concerned.

    Most people are saying you will not notice the speed difference...... I on the other hand did right away (even coming from my iPhone 6S Plus) my 7 Plus felt slower, more sluggish and less responsive. I too bought the 32GB model, then decided I was tired of the Plus size and wanted to go with just the 7 this go around, so I returned my 7 Plus 32GB and picked up a 128GB iPhone 7. And the speed and overall performance is now as expected. Its hard to explain the speed difference without using both a base 32 then the upgrade 128, but its there and noticeable..... When you get your phone go to Verizon drop the extra 100.00 and get the 128GB model.

    Firstly, Big welcome to iMore, we hope you enjoy your stay.

    If you don't download songs, movies or take photos i don't think your space will be eaten up very quickly. If you like playing games, the 32GB should be alright. If you do run into a situation where you have run out of space, just simply delete one or 2 of the games. ^_^ Hope this makes you feel better. Rather just enjoy the phone

    Just for the completeness: you can find a test at iPhone 7 storage speed: 32GB vs. 128GB NAND speed comparison | BGR, and differences like 25% less throughput in reading and nearly 90% less write speed is something I would not call "noticable". Running games might just be one of the spare use cases where this difference can be ssen

    How does having a smaller memory affect speed??

    See Is Apple using ?slower? flash storage on the iPhone 7? Probably not? | Pocketnow for an explanation: a larger storage uses more NAND chips and you can access them in parallel.

    Hi everyone, thanks for your replies, I ended up keeping the iphone 7 32gb since I get 5gb data instead of 1gb which i would of got with the 128gb version. Luckily, it got dispatched a lot quicker than I expected. I got my 32gb iphone on a sale for £35.99 with unlimited texts, minutes and 5gb. Network: EE. The only other option made you pay £60 upfront with £39 a month and only cxame with 1gb data. Network: Vodafone( A lot worse than EE). I currently have 18gb left of my 32gb storage and i've basically downloaded like 30 games. I'm pretty happy but still got the fear of running out. I'll probably have 2gb left when I upgrade to my next phone. Good or bad choice?

    Before this I used to use Tom's Guide. I barely got answers and they usually say things like "whatever you want" and there's only one answer. On this I got so much help and support I'd never go back to tom's guide.

    Synthetic benchmarks are the ruin of the market....
    There is a negligible speed difference in read/write speed on the nand, that's perfectly normal and you can't notice during your usage.
    The only question you need to answer is: are 32 Gb enough for me ? Music and photos need much less space than modern games....

    If you're not a really heavy user that's only in the market for a 32gb phone, you won't notice the speed difference.

    Sounds like a deliberate choice by Apple not just due to the smaller size based on other manufacturers 32gb phones.

    From Forbes:

    https://www.google.com/amp/www.forb....?client=safari

    And yet this isnít a full defence, in fact itís rather disingenuous. To use this argument ignores the fact that 42.4MB/s is not remotely near the limits of what 32GB solid state storage can achieve. Need an example? The 32GB Galaxy S7 Edge is benchmarked at 150MB/s while I benchmarked Googleís new 32GB Pixel XL which achieved a mouthwatering 301MB/s

    I'm not even going to waste my time in reading a Forbes article....
    There is an explanation here on iMore.
    BTW the write speeds on the 32 GB model aren't good at all, and this is something Apple have to address.
