Amazon Deal: Save $19 on AirPods 2

    So I'm a bit of a phone nerd I'm not hardcore iOS or Android or even Windows Phone when it was a thing. Each have their pros and cons. The way I see it use what you like and works for you. However I always found myself drawn back to iOS. It's not as customizable (from the general sense) but there is just something about it.

    So I traded in my paid off iPhone 7 last November for the OnePlus 6T. It's a great device and I have no problems with it but I miss iOS. My wife wants to move to Android. Well I'm swapping her for her iPhone 7 which is on the Apple Trade in Program with T-Mobile. So back to iOS I go.

    Since the upgrade hits at the end of the month I'm going to trade it in for the iPhone XR in red. Only decision I can't decide is the space. For those who have the 64GB do you wish you had gone to the 128GB?

    Welcome home! I have a 64GB and have no space issues. I take a lot of photos and I also have a lot of apps. I do use Google Photos, which backs up all of my photos, and I occasionally go through and remove photos off my iPhone.

    Welcome back! As far as storage, I personally prefer the most storage I can get, however, with Apple’s prices I’m stuck at 64GB which is doable for me as long as I have everything stored in the cloud. It is what it is.

    I have no problems with my 64gb iPhone 6s Plus. But I don't keep music and photos local on my phone.

    I prefer to buy the Max Storage but it’s not for everyone

    I swap phones too often to buy new with big storage, re sale not as good either, 100gb + of photos/videos in iCloud with my iMac as back up, so 64gb is fine for me.

    Welcome back! I'm the same way, always had Blackberry's, Androids, Windows phones and iPhones. I just switched from a HTC U12 to the XR 64gb Red and couldn't be happier. I absolutely love it! One of the best iPhones I've ever had. The 64gig is great for me. I have tons of apps, pictures, music ECT and still tons of room. I back up often and with the new feature to snooze unused apps it's great.

    Couldn’t go for the 64GB myself cause I have 30GB of music alone. Otherwise I probably would have gone with the cheapest.

    After 2 years of running around between many Android phones like Note8/9, Pixel 2/3 XL, Mate 20 Pro and Oneplus 6/6T, I got an iPhone XR 2 days back in Red with 128 Gigs storage. Just love, how nice this phone is, especially with lots of critical comments by many Youtubers/tech-reviewers. For me I like this phone more than the X/XS because of the perfect size. I have no issues with the screen too. Love this phone more than the way I use to love my iPhone 7 Plus in early 2017.

    I'm similar and have had Blackberry, Android, various flavors of iPhone, and even Palm webOS, but I've been sticking with the iPhone for the past several generations. When I was on the iPhone 7, the base 32GB simply wasn't enough for me, but with the base of 64GB on my red XR, I've had no issues whatsoever. Of course, I'm not huge into photographs or videos and don't have a ton on music stored on the device. My room is mainly used by emails, messages, and apps.

    Take a look at your current device and see how much room is taken up by the space hogs listed above. It likely won't match the iPhone storage, but should be in the right ballpark. If you're going to be close, I'd definitely go with the 128. You don't want to run out of room or have to take stuff off for a future iOS update, etc.

    This is awesome advice and if you follow it, you will know how much space you will need!

    Everyone uses their devices differently and with that said, I suggest you buy as much as you can afford. I view it something like this, when I go to the gas station to get gas, I know a quarter tank of gas will get me to my destination, but if I fill up I don't have to monitor or manage my travels for a while. Deciding what goes or stays on my device isn't a thought, I have room/memory to spare and that's how I like to use my device. "It's better to have and not need, than to need and not have"

    Nope! My photos, Vids and Files get backed up. 64gb is enough for me.

    Welcome back op, you can’t go wrong with either storage option, I would get the 128gb over the 64gb more breathing room

    I'm actually doing the opposite way right now. After some months using both iPhone X and 6T I just made my decision. Sold my iPhone X yesterday and married myself with the 6T. I'm sure I won't have any regrets, since this is a great device. Hope you'll enjoy your new iPhone, as well.
