    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........

    I was able to on my iPhone 5s and below, and I could probably get away with it on my 6 plus, but I don't want to have to. I like having all of my pictures of my niece in one place and not having to worry about loading them onto my external hard drive.

    I did make sure to transfer and delete photos off my phone once a week when I had a 16gb phone, which helped a lot. Also deleting text messages helped, especially if conversations had a lot of pictures in them.

    Some people don't need big. My Wife has had a 32 gb iPhone 5c for over a year. She still has over 20 gb available.

    They fixed the update issue and will be even better for iOS 9. Photos you can upload to Box, Dropbox and OneDrive. That saves space on the phone.

    Yeah I bought a 16 gb the first time and when I looked at the storage it only had 10 gigs. So I took it back to best buy and they didn't have the 64 gig. They said it was on back order and offered me the 128 gig and took another 100. Dollars off so you can say I got it for the same price as the 64 gig and I'm happy with the way it works. This is my first iPhone and I love it.

    Still should buy as much space as you can possible afford. I rather buy more and don't need it then need it and don't have enough specially when in America you have 2 year contracts and monthly payments for 2 years or perhaps 1 year depending on what you choose. In Canada last time I actually read anything about contracts thise are 3 years but perhaps they changed or I was wrong? I rather not be stuck with 16GB

    I not only get by, but it's not an issue for me with my 5S. I don't store music or photos on my device, and I only have around 15 apps. I've had my 5S for over a year and have almost 9gb available. That's all I need.

    Common sense.

    I only put apps on it. I don't play any games and don't want to.

    All my photos are now uploaded to the new Google Photos. Before that I did iCloud Photo Library.

    All my music is on my iPod Classic 80GB.

    I just make it work. But for the record im getting a 64GB iPhone 7.

    I barely scrape by actually, I thought it would be plenty since it is for my iPad Air, but for my phone, it's cutting it close. I my next one will be a 128GB so I can put movies in it too.

    I could possibly get by with a 16 gig model, but at the same time I like having all the extra memory in case I wanna add music, or an app or so.

    Most people can only afford the 16 gb iPhone. It's the top seller for that reason. Jumping up another $100 is difficult for most people. But you're looking at it the way most here on an iDevice forum look at it. We are not the norm. Most here want as much storage as possible and get it so they can put 40 gb of music on their iPhone. Most iPhone users don't do that. Nor do most download movies that take a lot of space. But even though most who have the 16 gb iPhone manage their space well, I do thing the base model should be 32 gb, as long as the base price remains the same.

    That's why I said to buy the most you can afford. The 16GB isn't the most sold because it's all people can afford while is a big reason a lot of people also don't see the need to buy a bigger capacity phone. I know my mother can afford it but bought the 16GB because it was cheapest. For $5 more a Month she could of leased the 64GB

    The issue I have with the 16 GB model is this: If a user cannot afford more than the 16 GB version, they will probably be keeping their phone longer than most of us. (I switch my iPhone every year, for example.) So, the storage problems a user can avoid with the 64 GB iPhone is well worth the extra $100. . . . This is only my opinion.

    And she'll most likely do well with 16 gb. Why pay more for no reason other than "I can"?

    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
