    I just wanted to know if the 64 GB will stay faster over the two year contract

    At least 4x as fast...
    Actually, they both have the same speed, all that is different is the amount of apps, photos, games, etc it can store.

    Welcome to iMore! If you can swing $100 I would upgrade. There has been a lot of back and forth about this but I think you'll thank yourself in the long run. It won't make much difference in speed (although phones with no available memory are usually very slow) but in the amount of stuff you can store on it. Truthfully, 16GB doesn't go a long way these days.

    Only you can answer that question. 64gb for $100 more though might be worth it. Good luck with your decision.

    I always recommend buying the largest capacity your budget will allow. iPhones are great devices, but the lack of expandable storage outside of using the new lightning adapters or mophie space cases its always best to have that internal storage which will be faster and easier to manage. I got the 128GB last year and this year.

    For the $100 difference you get 4x more storage. Do you take a lot of photos or keep music on your phone? If either, then you should probably get the 64gb. If both then it's a no-brainer. Your current usage is key.

    Also if you plan to keep the phone for 2 years I would definitely get the 64gb. If for just a year you can probably do with the 16gb.

    As everyone above said it is best to go as large as you can afford. Just the satisfaction of not worrying about how much storage you have left is worth it. At only $8.33 a month it is well worth it.

    Yes,,, 16gb is worthless, if you don't go more storage you will 100% regret it very soon.
    I owned a 16gb iPhone and iPad in the past, I will never ever make that mistake again.
    I spent the extra money and got a 128gb 6s and have not a single regret.
    Cheers

    If you want to keep music, photos and video on your phone, then go with at least 64 or 128.

    Echoing what everyone else has said, the 16GB and 64GB are the same speed...

    If you're asking how much storage you should buy, IMO you should get the 64GB if you can swing it.

    I bought a 128gb plus last year and a 128gb 6S this year. I don't like the new push toward cloud storage so I have to have as much storage as possible. I want my pictures and music available to me when I have no signal as well (i am on Verizon so I don't have signal issues but I do travel all over the Texas hill country and no matter who you have it can get a little spotty). I am also the guy taking a million pictures so I can go back through and pick the best ones, but sometimes I don't go through and delete for a while so it is more convenient as well. I would say get more storage👍🏻.

    If u can manage your memory then no, but it'll help to have the 64GB in the long run.

    Well then u answered your question. I have 128GB, because I have movies & tons of music, pictures & videos on my phone. Also, I like to play a few games & I use a lot of apps. I couldn't manage to do any of that with 16GB.

    Given that iOS now takes up about 8GB on its own, bumping up a tier if affordable to you is a good move.

    I say yes as well. I would chew through 16gb in the first week.

    To me that's an important point. 8GB left over to store photos, music, apps, movies. Not much space at all.

    people who ask this question on here r going get the worst response usually. your going to get the people who will come give you answers like i upgrade every year 128 gb plus yada yada best 1000 i spend every year. some people just consider the money factor like its nothing like its paper they just go into there drawer and pull out when they need it. truth be told you shouldnt listen to anyone on here for there opinion. i have always stuck with 16 gb up until this year, only reason i got 64 gb was because i got on sprints iphone for life program and i pay 19.77$ a month. its roughly like 4 dollars more a month or something like that. reason i always did 16 gb was because one i dont have that kinda money like some people are blessed to have i have nothing against them but for me i couldnt afford it, i also only used my phone for a phone and camera had like 300 songs couple apps and that was it always had 3gb left over. that being said it really honestly depends on your situation only you can answer whats best for you if you here something like go big or dont go at all just ignore it. iphone is good phone either way if you can get by on 16gb then stick with it. youll enjoy the phone either way.

    So if you plan to get a new iPhone every year you can't plan for a higher tier by saving your money? If all I could afford was a 16 gb id probably wait until I could get the next size.

    If you don't keep much music videos pictures on your phone, then you don't need much storage, plus you have 5gb of free iCloud storage
