    I travel all over the world (for work). It's nice being able to load her up, and not have to worry about wifi streaming speeds, or if you're even allowed to access the media in the country you're in. (Netflix and Hulu will take you're money, but deny you access depending on where you are, not where you live. ) ��
    Have you also tried with vpn? Then the place would be decided where the vpn connection is
    Opera has a free vpn service. But for your work it's also possible you already use vpn.

    16gb was never enough for me. I always go for max storage or the middle storage.

    I've looked into it, but with the mouthy bandwidth limitations, and cost for others, I had somewhat scratched the idea. I've used the tor network from time to time, but it is butt slow. Think back to the 9600 baud dial up days.

    Thanks for the Opera advice. I tried it, Netflix pops up with a warning stating it has detected a proxy and asks you to please turn it off, I can now get into Hulu, but when you click on a video, an error pops up, but the good news is Amazon Video now works. Thanks again.

    I could've up to as recently as 2014, which equates to 10 years ago in smartphone years lol. Last year I finally set my minimum to 32gb on phones and 128 on tablets despite people on forums claiming 16 wasn't enough all the years before that (it was)

    Sign out of Facebook, then sign back in. You'll gain most back. Or better, delete the app, then reinstall it. Google Photos should not be that much.

    If you don't play a lot of games, and don't intend on taking 4K videos. Yes, it should be fine.
    However, you may find problems a year down the line and things might get tight. Normally i wouldn't worry case about the storage size because you could always add a microSD card. but unfortunately Apple doesn't support that.
    Well there are external storage options now for iphone like the Leef ibridge that connects to your phone via the lighting connector. You can take photos and videos that go directly to the external. The only downside is that you can't put apps, or movies and music bought on itunes on it. But everything else will work.

    I heard good things about it from folks I know that have it though. So if you do buy the 16GB phone for your daughter this could be an option if she needs more storage for photos and videos down the line. Website below

    16g wouldn't be enough for me as well, and I set this up as a new iPhone

    Honestly a 64 GB iPhone was perfect for me. That's what I had when I got the 6 Plus. 16 & 32 GB are just not enough bc of all the apps & music I have on my phone. I had to go for the 128 GB when I got the 7 Plus. I'll never even come close to using all of the space.

    I have an iPhone 4 with 8GB. After the System space I was left with about 5GB and I can survive with that.

    16 GB was good for starting new. But after apps, data, and photos started to take off, it became a daily task to manage the space on my iOS device. With that said, I didn't have any real stopper issues. Just some delays to get things freed up to take more photo's or get a new app.

    I don't think I could make 16 gigs of storage work.

    Basically ^

    16gb doesn't feel like a struggle for me at all. I take photos and then I delete them. I do the same on my laptop even. I try whatever apps I want, and I delete what I don't use (Not as a space saver, it just seems silly for me to keep what I don't use).
    Same here- I manage the storage and it is not a problem for me. I have also used this trick to free up space- I usually choose "Gone with the Wind" in HD. Not sure why it works, but it definitely does.
    This trick can free up space on your iPhone

    I overbought this time with 256gb of storage that there I will never use in a million years...but I sure don't have to worry about not having enough space!

    Actually, to answer the OP's question...16gb wasn't ever enough for me, from my "6" on I had to get at least 64gb of storage to feel secure.

    I always had the lowest storage phone. My last one was a 5s that I managed to get by with. However, with live photos, 4k recording, gifs in iMessage, etc., I don't htink 16GB could hold up for me. Even on the 5s, I was constantly dumping all my photos to a backup drive. I'm glad they bumped it up. What is kind of frustrating is that it's $100 to move up to the next size, when the actual cost of the storage is just a few dollars. I know there's logistics and supply chain issues to consider, but you'd think they could make that jump slightly more palatable...
