    Anyone else thinking that the sweet spot for storage for most folks is 32gb and not 64? Why no 32gb?

    I think 64 is the sweet spot actually. I have a 64gig 6s+ and I like not having to worry about storage. Still have about 30gigs left of space. To me the sweet spot is not having to worry about all your apps, photos documents, and other media or email fitting on 1 device.

    Before I got my 128 GB 6S I had the 64 GB 6. It was honestly the perfect size for me. It was just right. The 128 GB option gives me the option to truly not worry about what I do or put on my phone but I would have been fine with the 64GB. After having the 64 I dont think I'd do well with 32. I've used around 50 GB so far.

    Welcome to iMore!

    I have always thought the sweet starting point for storage should be 32GB. Not sure why Apple insist on keeping it at 16GB. I also think they should make a 256GB. I have a 64GB now and even that worries me at times. When I move to the 7 Plus it will be the 128GB unless Apple offers something with bigger storage. Ideally I would like to see a 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. Storage is not that expensive for Apple and they will charge you for it anyways. I am sure there are reasons for it that we are unaware of and Apple sure is not going to let us know.

    When Apple offered 16, 32, and 64 gb, the best seller was the 16 gb model. Mostly because of price. But many just didn't need more than 16. That said, it would still be better to start at 32 gb. It's better to have too much than not enough. Would offering the SE with 32 and 64 gb take sales away from the 64? Probably.

    I'm not understanding this question. The camera is improved on the back, and now has retina flash on the front. Slightly improved at the front, super improved at the back.

    iPhone SE: Rear 12MP camera, f/2.2, phase detection autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) flash, 1.22 m pixel size, simultaneous 4K video and 8MP image recording
    Front 1.2MP, f/2.4, 720p@30fps, face detection, HDR, FaceTime
    iPhone 6S: Rear 12MP camera, f/2.2, phase detection autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) flash, 1.22 m pixel size, simultaneous 4K video and 8MP image recording
    Front 5MP, f/2.2, 1080p@30fps, face detection, HDR, FaceTime

    The difference is the front facing camera. The selfie camera.

    I can understand how the 1.2MP camera on the SE is a deal breaker compared to the 6s 5MP front camera.

    For my use, I never ever use the front facing camera unless I'm using FaceTime or?? I don't think I've ever taken a selfie either lol.

    However, I do use the main camera for work and sometimes personal use , by my wife handles ALL of the pics with her 6s+ (selfies included) and she takes great pics!

    It's beating a dead horse....
    I agree.
    I really hope with iPhone 7 Apple will follow iPad path: 32/128/256

    If you use the front camera for FaceTime only, just like me, 1.2 megapixels are enough.
    For selfies is quite poor, unless you are going to post them only on Instagram and Facebook, where quality isn't a factor...

    The front camera quality wasn't improved at all: it's exactly the same as iPhone 5S. You only have the flash on screen option now.

    When Apple offered 16, 32, and 64 gb, the best seller was the 16 gb model. Mostly because of price. But many just didn't need more than 16. That said, it would still be better to start at 32 gb.

    Indeed. That's the reason Apple went 32/128/256 Gb on the iPad. Basic needs -> 32 Gb. Advanced user -> 128 Gb. Insanely advanced user -> 256 Gb

    I think 256 on iPad mostly because folks like to keep movies on them. Those do take a lot of space.

    Not exactly the same. Rene said that the technology was slightly improved so the picture wouldn't exactly be the same. You can see it in his recent shootout article with the SE.

    I just read the iFixit tear down: it's exactly the same


    Rene didn't disassembled the unit.
