    Thinking of getting the 16g version of the 5S. Don't really think I need the 32 do I?

    Don't store music, I use iTunes match or stream most of the time.
    All my pics get moved to iCloud photos and into iPhoto automaticlly, don't store pics (or alot of pics at least)
    Don't play games
    Don't watch movies

    What do you think?

    Thanks!

    Based on that info 16 should be enough.

    From everything you've said sounds like the 16GB fits you best and saves you an extra $100.

    From what I see of your usage, I think you'll do fine with the 16GB model.

    Unless you have a extensive music collection you must have on you or want several movies 16 is adequate.

    Based off of what you said 16 should be fine. If you plan on downloading a lot of apps that you might want to go to 32. I always recommend buying the most space that you can afford. Phones have a tendency a filling up a lot faster than you might think. It really sucks to be caught short when you really need the extra space.

    32. You will easily fill up the 16. Getting 32 gives you space to grow.

    I would always recommend a 32GB unless money is a deciding factor. From what you said, you could get away with a 16GB, but what if you decide you want more space later? If you get the 32 now, you don't have to use it all...but at least you have the storage.

    Definitely great advice (unless money is the deal breaker). Better to have it and not need it, then to need it and not have it.

    32 videos take up space also and app sizes are pretty big

    Why does a 16 gb hold less value later on compared to a 32? I plan to resell in 11 months or less

    we'll a 32gb you can ask for more for the obvious reason it's a 32gb and cost more than a 16gb so you can ask for more when selling same with the 64gb vs 32gb

    Ask for more n also paid more. The way it sounded earlier was like 16 depreciate at higher rate or something.

    Based on how you use your iPhone 16gb should be fine. I'm the same way.

    For me, 16 is too little seeing that I have upwards of 5,000 songs. I recently have subscribed to spotify which I enjoy a lot. 16 should be plenty for you.

    I've been carrying my wife's 8 gig iphone 4 until I can get my hands on a 5S. I have 3 gigs left after a week with the phone. I told the Sprint store, i'd take a 16 but prefered a 32. If I do end up with the 16, i'll be relying more and more on streaming music. I keep telling myself to be patient and wait for the 32......if they call with the 16 however......

    The more relevant question is- how much free space is on 16GB vs. 32GB?

    But back to the OP- if you're sure you won't turn into a game/app, movie, photo, music, or movie junkie, go with 16GB.
    Remember- games can easily get to be 1GB in size.
    Do you use the kindle app? Some of their magazines can be 1GB in size.

    You never see people griping about having "too much free space" on their phone. If you can afford it, get the larger size. What may be true about your usage today isn't necessarily true tomorrow, and the only way to get more space is to buy a new phone.
