    Hi!

    For some people, size matters. So I was wondering which storage size you got and why?

    I got the 16 GB because all my media is stored on Google Drive and I listen to my music on Apple Music.
    So 64 GB feels like it would have been a "waste" of space.

    I also got 16gb. But it's the last time in my lifetime.
    It hasn't really been a problem, but it's also not convenient.

    All my music is on my 80gb iPod Classic. Which leaves the rest for apps. All my photos are uploaded to Google Photos, which has unlimited storage.

    So I've managed ways around only 16gb, but it's not ideal. I'm for sure getting 64GB on my iPhone 7

    Oh.
    Yeah, 64GB seems more appropriate for you!

    When the 5 and 5s came out and both had rumors of 128gb, I was hoping BIGTIME and was disappointed when they kept the top at 64gb. They came out with 128gb for the 6 and I clicked my heels. I have a large music collection and like it all on my phone. I have a lot of apps and take a lot of photos. With larger file sizes everything is taking up, I have 35gb left. I will always go for the higher capacities whenever they offer it.

    Woah! That's a lot o.o
    I had a 32GB 5S and I found out I was only using like 5 or 6GB of storage (just apps) so I decided that my upgrade would be 16GB =P

    I had the 16 gb iPhone 5. I was down to 2.7 gb available.
    I got the 64 gb 6s Plus because this:

    16GB is just too small so I got the 64GB version. I reeeally wished apple shipped a 32GB as the base model. That said, I can not fill up 64GB but if somehow I did, I have 130GB cloud storage that I can use to upload pictures if needed.

    I got 64 this year only cus of price. Leasing with sprint I only paid 4$ more month. When paying contract price theb199.99$ vs the 299.99$ I went with 16 was always enough cus I only used my phone for calls camera I streamed music. Always had about 2.5 gigs. I always say if you do not need it and you know 16 is enough get what you need.

    I always but the largest storage available. Most people go for the 64GB. For $100 more you can double that! Seem like bargain to me!

    Definitely! A 32GB version would have been awesome =)

    I went 64gb b/c I felt it'd give me room to grow if need be. I have plenty of cloud accounts but sometimes I just prefer things to be on the phone.

    It's only a bargain if you can afford the extra $100. Most people can't.

    That has always been my opinion I first joined this site I had so many people argue with me tell me I'm giving bad advice. I was actually told when discussing six with long time active member who still posts a lot today ( no name mention) if only model u can "afford" is 16 gb you shouldn't have a iPhone. I think statements like that are absurd " if you only using it for calling you don't need a iPhone" like everyone needs use there phone there entire life or something. People are different lifestyles are different. If low class citizen can only afford a 16gb they should have that option. That's beauty of the world were all different. Get what u need and what fits your budget and ignore everyone else. I know someone who still uses a 8gb 5c.

    Voila! I can afford the 128GB but the 16GB fits my needs better =) It also has an integration with my Macbook and iPad.
    And yeah, my bestie has a 8GB 5S she is fine with it (I wonder how she fits apps in there, but still =P ).

    I personally won't go back to a 16gig phone. I don't want to have to store things in various online drives or worry about how much I'm installing or how many pics I have. The extra $100 is well worth that to me

    128 gig. I'll never get anything less. Since I used love photos and plan on taking 4K videos I'll need the storage. Best option ever.

    I went with the 128 GB. Technically I could have gotten by with the 64 GB. I had the 64 GB 6 model. But I do a lot in terms of music and I seldomly remember to move my photos off (Even though they automatically upload to DropBox as well). I just wanted to make sure I NEVER had to worry about my storage. And the 128 GB allows that. I stream most of my music but sometimes I'm in areas with no data and I like to have music stored locally for those situations.

    The 6S is really disappointing me with the storage. On my iPhone 5S is more storage free and jailbroken what use the most space and I never got any problems with it.
