    Hi! I'm looking to get a new iPhone 5s and I was wondering if 16 or 32 GB would be better for me. I have about 750 songs, 45 apps, and I don't get many TV shows or movies. The only problem is I am a photo fanatic and take A LOT of photos that I can never seem to delete. I am worried if I get the 16 GB I will not have enough storage for all my photos and videos. Anything will help!!!

    Sounds like you'll be more comfortable with 32GB.

    No one ever complained of having too much memory on their phones. Go 32

    I agree with what's been said already. No such thing as too much storage- if you can afford it, get at least 32.

    Get the 32 gb. You can always use apps like Dropbox or Box to store photos. They are cloud based. I use Box. I put photos on Box, then delete them from my camera roll. They're stored in the cloud, but can be viewed or saved back to the camera roll anytime.

    I would go 32G. The little bit of money that you save on the 16G won't be worth it if you run out of space, especially if you take a lot of pictures. I've got the 64G 5s and I'm so happy I know I've still got room.

    If you intend to keep it a while, the bigger the better.

    32gb is best to get. When I got mine they only had 16gb so I had to get that but when the iPhone 6 comes out I'm going to use jump to get it.

    I think the real question is should you be waiting a couple of months for the Iphone 6. That's what I am struggling with right now. I have a serious jonsing for IOS right about now and the thought of waiting is keeping me up at night.

    32 GB is a no brainer.

    Unless you live totally on the cloud and save photos that way, the 32 gig is the way to go.

    I always go for a 32GB.. Nice middle ground.. Not to little and not paying a lot for space I may never even touch in my cycle with using the phone.

    I agree with the 64, if you can afford the extra 100 but if not id go with the 32 better to have too much then not enough in my opinion

    Go for 32GB model.. Why ? - Considering the frequency of the updates by developers and the size of them will eat up your 16GB soon!

    It all depends on your usage, if you're going to take pictures with your phone and throw them on your computer each week and free tue space on your iPhone then you. Can go with the 16GB to pay less money, but if you use a lot of apps, games and have a huge music library then you can go with the 32 or 64 versions.

    Another recommendation is to wait until the coming new iPhone is out.
