    My mom is about replacing her old phone with an iPhone 4S, but however 16GB versions seem to pricey for her as for a phone, and in my area it's quite unavailable though, but there's no problem with the 8GB version.

    She's not going to download any games, maybe a few basic-daily apps, a few albums and some pics. I'm mostly concerned at iOS updates which may take pretty much of that precious space - my 16GB 5S speaks for itself -

    Hi and welcome, it is hard to say, but 8GB's is really not a lot of space. If at all possible try for the 16GB.

    If that's all that will be occupying the storage, she should be fine.

    Define "a few" albums and "some" pics? "Few" and "some" could mean hundreds to certain people. Just know that music, videos and photos can take up a good deal of space. Yes, the 8GB model "could" be enough, but I'd really try to find a device with a minimum of 16GBs. Would she consider getting an iPhone 5C?

    If your mum could live on iCloud totally, I would say theoretically you could, but I wouldn't recommend anything under 16GB at this point for any phone in the market.
