    I just bought my first iPhone , a 16GB 6 Plus. I switched companies and traded my Galaxy S4 fo it; I could've gotten a Note 4 but I have never owned an iPhone and since all my other devices are Apple I could integrate them all. But now after reading reviews and message boards I am wondering if I selected the wrong phone. I decided not to get the 64GB since I never had any capacity issues with my 16GB devices, including my Galaxy S4 which I never filled out the memory. Should I just keep the phone and use cloud storage? I do not download a lot of apps and I try to keep the pictures to a minimum.

    Sorry for the long post, thanks in advance!

    No offense to anyone, but 16GB is all but useless with pic/music/video file sizes.... Yeah, there's "the cloud", but that uses up valuable data... for which the carriers have us over the barrel for... Save your cellular data, get more storage up front!!

    Only YOU can answer that question...if you ask ME if you should return it, I would unquestionably say yes because I couldn't live comfortably with a 16GB model (if I had the means to get a larger capacity version). I agree with the sentiments of others though in that it is always better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    I got the 6+ 16G since it was my first iPhone not knowing if I'd even keep it and didn't want to spend the extra for more storage. Turns out I really like the phone and have everything loaded on it I need and have 5.5GB storage empty remaining. So for me it's fine. However, now that I have tried the eco system and the iPhone itself and find I like it I'd probably get more storage on my next if I stick with Apple. So bottom line is how much storage do you need? Only you can answer that.

    You got a 14 day window to find out if you should keep it or not, and in most cases if you bought it from an Apple store sometimes you have longer than that.

    Since you're asking, yes, I would return it. The thought of actually owning a 16GB iPhone disgusts me to say the least.

    If you like the phone keep, if not return it. Some enjoy iPhones and others do not. It's like that with anything you purchase. As far as space is concerned get the amount of GB's that works best for your needs and budget. For you getting 32 or higher GB's could be a waste of money. Remember those who are urging you to go beyond your needs are not contributing a dime towards the cost of the phone.

    Nobody is urging him/her to do anything in this thread...people are offering opinions, which is what they asked for.

    You couldn't care less what the person decides but you say that a 16GB disgusts you? Make up your mind. That comment alone says that you do care.

    The opinion in re: 16GB devices has no bearing on concern for the person's decision - why are you conflating them?

    Having an opinion about a 16 gig and not caring about the ops personal decisions have no relevance what so ever to each other. I hate windows computers I don't care who buys them.

    "It disgusts" me was a joke. Lighten up.

    And yes, the OP asked my opinion. I gave it.

    First of all there was no attempt to start an argument. A person asked if they should return a phone, said she only needed a 16GB, and a comment was made that 16 GB is a disgust. You don't know how that comment could affect that person's purchasing decision.

    That's not our fault that they need crowd affirmation.

    Stop acting like the OP came here contemplating suicide.

    I can only envision you snapping your fingers while saying "first of all"...which makes it a bit comedic.

    You threw the word "urged" into the mix, but I'm guessing you don't really understand what that means (since it was not done in the thread), then you decided to tell a person who was simply offering his own opinion of the 16Gb capacity device that he needed to "make up his mind", but again, he made a simple opinionated comment.

    Also, I don't care how that comment could "affect" a person's purchasing decision. You seem to be the only person in this thread really invested in such for some odd reason...did we offend you by saying the 16GB model was useless to our own personal preferences? If so, get over it.

    Being that you do not and/or will not be downloading a lot of apps and you try to keep pictures to a minimum (I'll assume this applies to music that isn't streamed), then the 16 GB model should be sufficient for your needs. I am one of those people who can get by with the 16 GB model because I normally delete the apps that I don't regularly use, however, the price of the 64 GB was too good to pass up. Will I fill up the extra space? Heck no, but it's good to have it because it allows me more freedom to install and download and experiment with various apps without thinking of space constraints. Anyway, as I've stated above, the 16 GB model should be sufficient for your use, because t if you can swing it, get the 64 GB model.

    They kept 16 because its easier to upsell from 16-64 than it would be if they started 32gb. I could get by with 32gb, but with being 16gb the base model, it was a no brainer to go to 64 for $100 more. Would be a much harder sell if 32gb was base.
