    16gb is okay for light users nowadays with new app and iOS requirements for more memory to store things. Anyone can argue that they did just fine with their old 16gb phone back on previous OS or with less features. 4K recording on the iPhone 6s is around 350mb/minute of recording.

    I wouldn't be keeping large videos on my phone anyway. There's Dropbox for that.

    Oh okay....for ME, a 16gb would be a waste of smartphone technology, I might as well get a flip phone. That just ME.

    I had a 16gb iPhone for years and managed fine but had to watch what I was installing and delete what I wasn't using.

    It became a habit to watch my space.

    Now I have 128gb 6s but still feel the need to keep things tidy and delete stuff I don't need and watch what I install, back up photos etc!

    At least I know the space is there if I need it 😂

    I know what you're saying, but I've always had 16gb iPhones and I've never had a problem with storage. Why spend the money if I don't need to.

    Anybody getting 16GB is deluding him/herself. It's not enough storage even BEFORE 4K videos.


    Apple's ploy to increase then average revenue per unit is behind the reason why there is no 32GB option. By offering the "loss-leader" 16GB, the take rate on the 64GB is through the roof!
    I'm not "deluding" myself by having a 16gb phone. All of my iPhone's have been 16gig. It's all about how I use my device. I don't take videos or store music, and I use Dropbox to store my photos. I've had my 5s for a almost 2 years and I have 9.5 gb of space available. Price is not an issue, I just don't need a 64 or 128 gb device.

    The reps at Verizon kept trying to talk my dad into buying a 64GB one and I told him that he can save $100 and use the 16GB just fine. They kept giving me the evil eye LOL

    He only uses a few apps and barely takes pictures. Doesn't keep music on his phone and doesn't take videos at all. Pretty sure he still has well over 10GB free too, even with all the pictures I added onto it.

    Though for my mom and I, I made sure we got the 64GB ones Her for her photos and me for my music and apps

    I've had the 4S and 5S before this and I always got the smallest storage size. But both our iPads (She has the Air, I have the Mini 2) are 16GB and we ran out of space for once. Wasn't gonna let that happen with our phones too haha

    Last year, the 16gb was enough for me since I mainly stream. However, this has changed since I bought a dslr. I need to keep my pictures on my iPhone after I edit them on my MacBook and I was down to 200mb on my 16gb. So I got a 64gb 6+ and the difference is night and day for me- I even downloaded a bunch of games I will NEVER play. My case is an example of how getting a higher storage place CAN-not always- be a way of future proofing your purchase so in this sense I'd recommend the higher storage option. My mother on the other hand doesn't need that much space. She has pages of apps and still has about 5gb's left.

    I would bet the farm that the 16gb is the best-seller by far.

    For you! Many can't afford that extra $100. And it's only for 1 or 2 years.
    If you can't afford an extra $100 bucks you probably shouldn't be buying a new iPhone in the first place.
    As far as storage space is concerned I'd much rather have more and never use it, than to need more and not have it ...

    It doesn't even have to be a fancy restaurant anymore to spend that much. You can easily drop $50-$60 bucks at Applebee's on they're rotten food. I know people that have no problem dropping a $100 bucks at a bar on drinks, but act like spending an extra $100 bucks on a cellphone that they'll be using daily for the next 1-2 years is going to send them to the poorhouse ...

    One gets what they can afford. Most who go with 16 gb do so for cost. Do you buy 10 lbs of ground beef if you only need 1 lb? In 2 years time, I won't come close to using 55.4 gb on this 64 gb phone. Why then should I fork out an extra $100? Just because? Lol you make no sense!

    I would like to see a 32 GB version, cause I'm scared 16gb won't be enough but then again 64gb will be to much.

    Although I can afford the extra $100, why would I spend it on a 128GB iPhone when I'm not gonna come near using that space. I still have 28GB left on my 64.

    Good thing we don't have to spend each other's money. Doesn't matter to me one way or another if someone doesn't want to spend the extra money, that they don't have, on something they don't need. Not my money, not my call.

    I got a 16GB iPad and I regretted it almost instanteously. For me it was a mistake. Right now if I had my bare minimum with my most played music on my iPhone I would go to 9.9 GB. Add photos and I'm at 11GB. That's not comfortable for me. On my iPad I can't have music because just some of my movies take up the 16GB.
    It doesn't work for how I like to use my devices.

    People who bought 16GB have their reasons but will not recommend it to my friends and family unless they are ok with clearing up their space constantly for a year or 2. True that there are many apps who can upload your photos and videos automatically to the cloud but when you reach to the point where you constantly checking your space and cleaning it up will make the $100 extra worth it.

    iPad doesn't have that much problem having the 16GB compared to a phone because you don't carry that all the time to take pictures or videos. So, I guess iPad is not much of an issue with majority of people.
