    Got the 64gb Space Grey. I have been an Android user for a few years now, and grew tired of the lag and terrible battery life. I told myself "If I'm going iPhone, I'm going all the way". I honestly couldn't be happier. I have around 1100 songs, 500+ photos, dozens of videos and apps up the wazoo. Still have nearly 40gb of space left. I try to shy away from streaming as I like to have my content on hand in case I have a bad cell connection. I know it's a bit pricey, but if you plan on keeping the phone for awhile and want the piece of mind knowing that you'll never have to do any "inventory control" then by all means, get the 64gb. I honestly wouldn't settle for anything less than 32 though. If they would have made a 128gb iPhone, I would have gotten that.

    I got the 64g because I knew I already had 25g of music, pictures and other odds and ends from iTunes. Coming from Android and never owning an iPhone before, I was expecting the usual bloatware that took up a lot of space that was always on my droids, and didn't want to cut it close. Lo and behold, I still have about 24g space left, but with all the playing around and finding fun new apps, I'm sure I can't put a good dent in that.

    16gb because I don't put a lot on my phone. Just a few of my favorite apps and I use spotify and pandora for music.

    16gb. I've always purchased the 16gb model. I don't put music on my phone or a lot of apps. Don't even really keep a lot of the pics that I take on it so 16gb is more than enough for me.

    I got 32gb space gray. My 4s was 16gb and I frequently had to delete some things for updates to proceed. That is not an issue with 32gb. I have music for the gym, a fair number of photos and a lot of apps.

    I got the 64GB Space Gray version. I wish I could have done with less storage as I had to pay full retail ($849 before tax), but I have a large music library that remains full time and tons of movies that I like to keep in rotation, with more being purchased from iTunes all the time (most recently was on Monday when I got Fast & Furious 6 and The Wolverine)! So while I didn't enjoy the price tag, I needed the storage as I only have a couple GB's available at any given time. I also have a 64GB iPad Mini, but I really wish that was a 128GB so that I could store the majority of my movies on it.

    iPhone 5s with 32g. I use iCloud storage for my music but found there were too many times I was away from WiFi and couldn't listen to music that was stored only in the cloud. Now I have plenty of room for music and as many pictures/videos of my grandchildren I want to take.

    I bought 16 gb. For me I never come close to filling all of that up, so it is not worth it to spend the extra hundred dollars for more storage.

    I bought the 16 GB version this time around because I have the 32 GB iPad Air. This combination seems to work out well. All of the memory eating games and movies I put on the iPad and leave my phone light.

    I have the 16 also. I have 4 gigs left and I can't even find apps (that I like) to fill that. I may do a 32 in the next go but 16 is all I need for now.

    I'd likely go for 32gb of storage because it is a nice balance and should allow for plenty of space for everything you'd like to keep on your device.

    I tend to stick to 32 gb (I just got my gold 5s today!). I also carry an iPad mini though so I don't keep any movies on my phone. I don't keep my whole music library on my phone either. I have about 5 playlists of music that I currently like to listen to regularly that I store locally.

    32GB for me. I think I fall prey to Apple's ways. I mean 16GB would probably suffice, but I'm like, "I can double the memory for just another $100?" and can't resist. I can resist the 64GB though cause I know I can't crack the 32GB

    I was hoping they were going to release a 128 GB this year and was disappointed they didn't I use this as my iPod, tons of apps, and photos, I like to have all of my entertainment available on the fly.

    I would say think about how long you will own it. If you plan to have it 2 years and you are hitting capacity on 32, there is 54 GB available on a new 64 GB....future proof yourself.
