    I’m curious to know which amount of storage you went with and why?

    I went with the 128 GB model because it is way more than I’ll use or need.

    Not upgraded yet. However, if I did, it would be 128GB.

    I barely use 20gb so a 128 would have been fine but it wasn’t in stock. 256 was in stock and only $3 more per month.

    I went with 256 but would have gone with 512. My local store didn’t have it on launch day in 512 and I really wanted silver/white. Anyway I have 160 GB available still so I should be good and I saved $200.

    The wait for 1tb at VZW is until Christmas. Is there anywhere I can just go and buy one?

    I was gonna get the terabyte but decided on the 512GB model instead

    I prefer my data to be on device while having a cloud backup and I keep everything on it.

    Downloaded books, Movies, Music as well as all my documentation no matter how mundane they are like store receipts. I’m pushing 200GB of data soon

    My 512 gb Note 9 is up to 300gb and I want to copy all of it to the iPhone so I need the terabyte model.

    Confused why you'd need the 1TB, versus the 512GB. Unless you're thinking 'long term' you will exceed the 512GB storage. Albeit, I do feel one should also assess their data, and what is 'really' needed...

    All of my PowerPoint presentations which include embedded videos, all of my photos and personal videos, all of my product manuals, spreadsheets, lab protocols, data bases etc. All of the above include media. It uses up a lot of space.

    I never know what I'll need but I'll have it.

    I might find a 128gb model there but never a 1tb.

    Mainly music and photos. My iMessages take up about 25 GB too. I should trim those down.

    I had a 64 GB iPhone X. For a long time, that was fine; I used optimized storage for photos and music. But in the last year or so I've really been struggling with storage issues, and I drive through a lot of areas with weak to no cell phone signal so music would not work, either.

    I probably would have been fine with 128 GB, but instead I upgraded to 256 GB, and now have all of my music on the phone. (Still optimized photos, but that works fine for me.) At the moment I have 97.3 GB storage used. I should be fine for the rest of the time I own the phone.

    I went from a 64GB to a 128 GB, which seems fine for me. But I do need to get rid of some photos!!!

    Ya I want the full tb because I never want to get rid of anything. All my receipts and work files and personal files and pics and vids etc. I like them available with a touch and I don't want to trust the cloud.

    Well the 1tb model wouldn't be back ordered if it weren't for folks like me!

    I’m just the opposite. I want the phone stripped down and the import stuff in the cloud.

    I understand

    But I started data hogging because I camp out where they just starting to get spotting weak signals so I have as much off-line content to carry me for a week or two in the woods

    Still have to drive 3 miles to send a text.

    128gb is more than plenty for me. No need to overspend.

    I wanted the 128gb and that’s what I originally ordered but FedEx lost it.

    The 256 was only $3 more per month on the ATT Next Up plan so I grabbed while I could.

    Gotcha. I buy my phones unlocked so I don’t have to be tied to a carrier. I save a lot of money that way but the phone is what it costs (new).
