    Went with the 256 XS Max because Apple was out of stock of the XS when I ordered the phone. I'm coming from an 8 Plus. It'll be here tomorrow and I'm excited.

    I think it all depends on what you’ll need/us. I was using a 256GB X and only had about 35GB occupied. I now have a 256GB XS Max with 25GB or so occupied. Could I get away with a 64GB? sure, but I don’t wanna lol

    Went the other way. 64 GB X to 256 GB XS Max. Via a 128 GB Note 9 in between.

    I couldn't get by with 64GB and 256 GB is too much for my needs. But it's the only option if you can't get by with 64 GB. 512 GB is outrageous and I really don't see why anyone needs that much space on a phone. But everyones needs vary, I guess.

    In todays world of cloud storage...I'd rather save the money. I'd be wasting precious pennies on a 512 GB phone lol.

    64GB is probably plenty if I kept up on clearing things out, but I just don't want to have to worry about it 6 or 10 months down the road after music, pictures, movies etc accumulate. 256GB is probably overkill, but they don't give us a choice now do they

    64gb for me, with a 50gb a month icloud subscription for $12.00 a year. Works like a charm.

    Anyone else do this? I bought the 256 X last year. Before I ordered the new one last week, I checked my storage. ....23 gigs used out of 256 on a phone I’ve had for a year! Insane so I decided to save a few bucks and get the 64 gig,which I know I won’t come close to using up. (I don’t take a lot of pictures or videos)
    I see no reason not to do it (I'm assuming you already bought anyway at this point). I had a 128 7+ and went to a 64 X last year since I was using maybe 40GB of storage. Then I didn't sync some lossless music rips that I wasn't listening to when I went to the X and started off with low 30's used. I'm still under 40 a year later.

    I take a lot of photos but when I take RAW photos or 4K video I pull them off right away anyway for post processing on my PC. The newer HEIC format photos take really no space at all though. Probably the biggest increase in storage I've seen in the last year is new games and the metric ton of wallpapers I've downloaded from Led in the massive wallpaper thread in the X forum. I had maybe a dozen downloaded photos for wallpapers between my first phone a 6s+ and the 7+ until I got the X and now I have 100's lol.

    However when I upgrade finally next year, I definitely plan to go 128+. I'd really like to start doing more video and if I'm on a trip I won't always be able to pull them off right away and I'm not aware of any way to save them to an external device directly from the phone.
