    I tried that but after a few months of banging my head on the wall it was just easier to forget about it and get the unlimited.

    I have a 64 GB with 47 GB’s free. I went that route because I don’t store music. I use Apple Music. Also, I have 45 GB’s of pics and videos in iCloud storage. No way I needed a 256.

    This is me, but I got the 256gb just in case. Next round I'll go back down if I don't even come close, but going from the 6s to the X I wanted to make sure I was covered

    I have a 128 GB 7 Plus, juste picked up a 64 GB X... we shall see if it’s enough. With unlimited data and iCloud I think it will be ok.

    Depends on how much space you used/had left on your 7 Plus. If you were over 64gb you might be in trouble -- though iCloud photo library will unload more photos probably

    I was using like 57 GB and most of that was photos (which are all uploaded to iCloud) and the next largest chunk of storage was from music (which I have an Apple Music subscription).

    Hopefully I’ll be good...

    How much you have free? Here’s mine.

    Nice. Everybody told me I needed a 256. I was like why? I use cloud storage. I have 45 GB’s of photos and video in iCloud photo storage. I didn’t want to spend an extra $150 for storage I wouldn’t use.

    If things get tight, I may enable "Offload Unused Apps"...

    But yeah, with cloud storage and unlimited data plans, having a ton of storage isn't a complete necessity I think. Will see in the long run I guess...

    I’m testing it for you I figured I could get by with 64gb but got 256 so we will see how it does by next year.

    If you fill that up (and not trying ) I will be impressed.

    But will be interesting to see as the year rolls along.

    Honestly there should have been a 128 GB version.

    With demand I think they did the right thing cutting it back. Less SKUs. And the price difference there was no room to shoe horn a 128 in there really. Unless they raised the 256 but they are already pushing the limits.

    I doubt I’ll fill the 256 but we will see!

    You should be fine with 64GB and will be even better if you have one of the iCloud services. I have 64GB in my previous phone. I have thousands of pictures and hundreds of videos plus 211 apps and I’ve used only 45% of my storage. I’m using the 200GB iCloud service for $2.99 a month. One of the best thing about it is I can now share my iCloud storage with my family since the launch of iOS11.

    I had a 64GB SE so I knew I would be good with a 64GB 8 Plus.

    Sorry, I just noticed this was an iPhone X thread.

    I definitely stand by my decision to get the 64gb 8+. My phone is essentially a dummy terminal with all the content in the cloud or elsewhere.

    I figure I'll be just fine with the 64. I had my iPhone SE for a year and a half with quite a bit of use. I only used 12 of the very modest 16 that came with the phone.

    I keep telling myself "I'm going to start making videos" and then a year later I haven't and I have a ton of space left.
    I do the same thing!! I download all these video editing apps, and say I'm gonna use them all, but never do.
    That’s when I go ahead and shut him down for the rest of the month
    I used to do that with my nephew. He got so mad at me the first few months, but he eventually got used to abiding by the rules. I mean he had a brand new iPhone that I was paying for. The least he could do was only use the 6GB data allotment he had. Haha!

    I have 16 gb per month for 3 of us. By the 2nd week my 16 year old son is already close to 5. I usually cut him off around that or 6. He still doesn’t learn

    I’m currently saving to get the 256GB. I plan to download all my music to the phone (~50GBs) and some movies. That way I’m not using as much data to stream.

    Plus, I live by the adage “I’d rather have it and not need it than to need it and not have it”

    I live by that too.
    It’s always nice to have extra storage.

    We were doing that for a while but it always seemed I spent more time trying to manage the usage that it got tiring. Now I don't have to worry about it at all which is nice.
