    Do well? Busy deleting stuff all the time. I'm the one who has to go help her with why she doesn't have enough memory. The phone only has about 11GB of usable memory which is pretty sad in 2015. If you can afford it you should always choose 64GB

    I agree- I don't want to have to decide which apps are most important or do I really need to carry all those pictures. I want to enjoy using my phone without those space restrictions.

    I get by with no problem. Unlimited T-Mobile plan allows me to stream music and not store it on the phone. Things like google drive and iCloud allow me to access photos and not keep them all on the phone. And I use iTunes Match also.

    My point is that most people can not afford that extra $100. It's a stretch for most to afford a 16 gb phone.

    I can afford to buy a 32 or 64 gb. I bought two 32 gb phones for my kids. I just know that 16 gb will work for me so why spend the extra money. I keep my photos on Dropbox, I don't play games or have music on my device and I only use the apps that I need. If I have an app installed that I don't use I get rid of it.

    Most people? It's a minority or a 50/50 at best. Most people just don't see the value in it and rather mess around deleting stuff

    And how would you access it underground where your subway has only added cellphone service in like 10% of the whole Line? Unless your going to have a signal 150% of the time unlimited data or not it's smart to download some stuff

    50% of the population are on gov't assistance of some kind. Yes, MOST people buy the 16 gb because it's all they can afford. They need that $100 for living expenses.

    I went for the 64 GB for the simple fact that the cost benefit made sense 100 more to quadruple the memory. The 128 GB did NOT make sense to me since the extra 100 that time only doubled my memory. So I opted for 64.

    By putting my phone down from time to time and not living my life on or through my phone. I don't keep videos on my phone or excessive amounts of music and apps on my device. I also clear out my photos every couple of months.

    Then they aren't buying iPhones.... Cheap android full priced on networks like Net 10, Boost, cricket or etc


    The Moto E is like $150 full priced and thus cheaper plans since you don't have to lease, finance or a 2 year contract

    Many do. But even a big portion of them prefer iPhones. And don't forget the % who still use the Obamaphone.

    If your hurting for money preference of OS fakes a back seat..... Android is cheaper up front and plans are as well. Metro PCS is $30 and you can easily get an Moto E for around $150

    What is a "normal user". In my opinion if you own a iPhone you're past a normal user simply because of all the apps and games that are available on the Apple network. I'm managing 32gb right now (3.5gb left) and I hate having to do so. Music, photos, wallpapers and videos is whole other story. I like my "stuff" on my phone and not having to worry about reaching for the clouds ....."when available" ......just my .02cents

    So you're saying all iPhone users are well off and can afford the extra $100 for more space? LOL. It might surprise you to know how many iPhone users have less than $30k total household income per year. They're able to scrounge up $199.99 for a 16 gb on contract.

    Then they aren't buying the iPhone 6 or 6 plus....Probably getting the iphone 5S or 5C....
    And even then typical 4 major carrier prices aren't friendly in price either...Metro PCS is $30 a month period yet T-Mobile is at least $60 after you include taxes on their basic plan with 1GB of LTE data and buying phone full price

    Even with the iPhone 5C and the 1GB data plan for $50 it's $69 dollars before tax and let's just add around $10 for tax so that's $70 a month for the next 24 months.


    Or you can go to metro pcs for a free phone after mail in rebate and a plan for $30 running on T-mobile network.




    If you need AT&T service there is cricket wireless for $35 after you do auto pay and the moto e for $79






    If your in need of money these are way better way to do it and the cheapest iPhone would be the iPhone 5c on cricket for $299

    Why do you think most people who buy an iPhone get the 16 gb model? It is the best seller.

    I find that I could probably get by with about 8GB on any smartphone. I suppose I'm not "normal" but I have never been able to get even close to using anywhere near half of my 16GB. No music, maybe 4-6 extra apps, no huge amount of photos........
    Isn't iOS almost 8 now by itself?

    And if it goes down? Sidekick and Microsoft a few years back proves I wouldn't bet it all on the cloud 24/7.

    No there is plenty of people who just want the "cheapest" iPhone possible when in reality your going to suffer because of it.
