    My wife and I just bought 2 of the iPhone 6s 16gb and my last phone (iPhone 5) was a 32gb. I just want to make sure that we are managing our storage right. We are not ones to download a bunch of apps, I think I have about 10 right now. I have about 205 photos but I also have 49 of 50gb of iCloud storage, not sure if photos are just in my iCloud or on my phone as well. My storage right now on my phone is 7.9gb. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

    If you have 49/50GB of iCloud storage your photos are not in there
    Go into your settings and go to iCloud. Scroll down to photos and turn on iCloud Photo Library. Make sure "optimize phone storage" is checked.

    I don't use iCloud Photo Library. Too complicated. I prefer cloud based apps like Box and Dropbox. Works better for me.
    But you don't have many photos anyways. You still have 7.9 gb available.

    Why don't you just get the 64/128gb? Isn't it only like 2-7 bucks more a month if you do the installment plan? My motto is always have more than needed for security and peice of mind. Same with money lol...also Amazon photo is much better Imo if you have prime
