    Although it's nice to see a 128 GB model of the iPhone 6 Plus, I'm not sure I like the fact that Apple opted to keep the 16 gig model as their base instead of bumping it up to 32 gigs. What about you? What are your thoughts about it?

    I'm not, 32gb no longer works for me as usable storage. I'll be opting for 128gb this time around

    Yeah they should've discontinued the 16gig version and kept the 32GB.

    Completely agree. I'll be getting the 64GB because there's no way in the world I'm getting the 16 and I have no need for 128.

    The 64GB is priced at last year's 32GB price. No reason to be disappointed when you think about it. Think of it as a free upgrade.

    How can you possibly be disappointed? Pay this year what you paid last year for the 32GB version and get another 32GB for free. 64GB for the price of 32. Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

    I remember predicting this way way back. Basically how important the 16gb was to Apple as an entry level starting point. The goal is to get you to go beyond the entry point and spend extra. I thought at the time dropping the 32gb made the most sense.

    I agree. I think if Apple made the 32gb the new entry level phone, it wouldn't be incentive enough for many people to upgrade to 64 or 128gb.
    For people that need more than 16gb, they'll obviously upgrade, but for people who are unsure, they may just say, hey for $100 more I can get 64gb & just spend the extra money.

    This. In this day and age, I am having a hard time paying $649 (or $749!) off contract for any phone with 16GB of space. Plus, on my iPhone 5, I was pushing my 16GB limit on occasion (and my wife maxed hers out on our Alaska trip - talk about bad timing), so my wife and I both decided we would have to step storage up for our next phones.

    So if I cant deal with 16GB: do I pay for two iPhone 6s (64GB) for $749 each ($1,500 total!); two iPhone 6 Plus (64GB) for $849(!) each ($1,700 total!!) or do I buy something different such as the new Moto X ($499 each - $1,000 for the two). At this price, in all seriousness, its hard to justify the iPhones. :-/

    I agree. I think if Apple made the 32gb the new entry level phone, it wouldn't be incentive enough for many people to upgrade to 64 or 128gb.
    For people that need more than 16gb, they'll obviously upgrade....
    Or buy a different phone. For those of us that need storage, it just means we are comparing the $299 ($749) or $399 ($849) prices to other phones that offer 32Gb and/or expandable storage.

    I'm not disappointed because 32GB would never work for me, but it does suck. I was going to say it's completely illogical, but it's not, not from Apple's stand-point. They aligned it this way so more people would opt to pay more for the jump to the 64GB. That being said, I'm going for 128GB.

    On a side note, I'd love to pop my 128GB Micro SD card into the iPhone that's currently in my Galaxy S5, which I got on sale for a mere $119, but we all know that's not how Apple operates. They truly make you pay to play.

    It was a total money grab by Apple. At 32 Gig base, too many people would by at that price point.

    Nope. I have a 32gb now and was going up upgrade if they kept that size or not!

    That's a big jump though. A little 16g to 64gb. I would have thought they would have started at 32gb & not have the 16gb

    Hey you disappointed 32GB'ers...

    This year's 64GB phone price = Last year's 32GB price

    The extra screen real estate has a premium.... but the 32/64GB storage price is a bargain.

    64gb is the same price as the 32, so no. I get what I wanted anyway.

    Nope I wanted 64 anyway although I only used 20 of my 32.

    Not really. I'm not even using half of my 32gb thus far. I was planning on downgrading to the 16gb but after seeing that the 22 is gone, I might just grab the 64gb for kicks and giggles.

    Not disappointed here either. Now that the camera is better I might go 128. They make is so easy to consider at $100 more...

    Nope...I see Apple's logic of pushing for either iCloud users or heavy internal storage users. The drop of the 32GB was a natural progression.

    People are assuming that the 32gb would be $199 / $649 or $299 / $749 (6 plus), but I believe that Apple would have left it at the same price point as it is now and the rest of the options would be $100 more... meaning the 128 gb 6 or 6 plus would be $499 / $949 or $599 / 1049, respectively.

    Hope I did the math right... lol. Sleepy.

    While it does not have an impact on me since I get the larger sizes, I think I know why they did it, (money grab/incentivize people to move up). However, I feel they should have once again led the industry and made 32GB the standard entry point.

    No. The 64GB is the same price as the 32GB used to be so that's a plus in my book. The 128GB is the one that I want which means that I'll have to wait until next month to get it.

    Yup that's true. Hadn't realised that. Makes sense.

    Yes and no, from a personal standpoint I would have loved a 32 gb as a base model with the cheaper price (in turn making the 6+ I'm buying the same price point as the current 32gb model). With that being said from a business standpoint it makes 100% sense, I'd say 35-40% of users would say 32gb is plenty of storage for them (myself included) so they would have been losing millions of dollars of profits yet they were super smart in offering a larger storage (which probably costs them $2) for the same price so people that were planning on spending the $299 are getting more bang for their buck and there won't be as many complaints. I wouldn't expect the 16gb model to go anywhere anytime soon, even though it's too small for most users it drives up sales of larger models and for those that just don't have that extra $100 to spend it still gets them a product in hopes they will become hooked and in the future they will buy more products with larger capacities for more $$$$$
