    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 went from 256-512. Im only using about 100-150g just in music and movies right now but I don’t like my hard drive being full because it seems to run slower lol

    Same for me now that we have messages in iCloud. Sixty-four gigs is more than enough for me now

    When I get a new iPhone, I’ll be downgrading the size as well now that I pay for an online storage service.

    I had a 64GB X and now have a 64GB XS MAX. I don’t think I’ve ever gone over 25GB.

    I have a 64gb 8 Plus now and my next will be 256gb. Phones now have amazing cameras and 4K video capabilities, I want to make better use of the video tech in the future. 64gb won’t be gone in a flash so it will be 256 or 512 for me.

    I have too much stuff for 64gb and not enough stuff for 256gb. In the last year or so I stopped buying music and finally switched to streaming. Music is what takes up the majority of the space on my phone.

    Spoke too soon. I was actually good with 64 but system storage kept varying from 18GB - 30GB prompting the stupid “running out of storage” message. Exchanged for a 256GB.

    The 256GB seems to be a good place for me and the way I use storage on my iPhone. 64GB is not enough and 512GB would be overkill.

    Same. I already knew 64GB would not be enough for me so I went for the 256 again.

    I simply buy the biggest storage available as I never really know what my usage will be and I don't want one of the lightning dongles on my device to backup photo's we should get more than 5GB of storage from Apple or at least give users of a 1-2 year storage upgrade with the phone purchase.

    I would definitely have done that too. You know your useage best and made a good decision! I have so many pictures and videos I go well past 64 gigs, but I don’t get close to the 256 I had on my 8Plus - but I had to stick with 256 on my Xs. Wish there was a 128gb.

    I’m a big Instagram user and post tons of pics and vids of my dogs.

    I went from a 256GB iPhone X to a 512GB iPhone XS Max. I had 231GB filled up on my 256GB X.

    256 is always enough for me.. I keep a lot of docs/pdfs on mine and photos for work. I have Apple Music but keep about 5K songs local. I don't play any games at all. I do keep some videos on the phone I can watch when bored, but that's about it. No matter how much I stuff on my phone plus extra I never have exceeded 100GB. I float around 80GB on average. So 64GB will make me conserve and 512GB is overkill. If they had a 128GB Base and it saves me $150 I would do that. But we have been asking for that for a long time, and seems it will never happen.

    I have a 64gb with 40 left, i stream and use iCloud. The 64gb max was $270 more than the X64gb last year so thought that was ok being the size bigger, i just can't break that $2k plus barrier for a 256gb yet My wife and daughter though i got 8/8plus 256gb so i don't have to manage their usage

    Stay with 64. Wish Apple would of offer base with 128 but I can probably get by. I regularly have 22 gigs left so not a big deal.

    I alias simply buy the max storage version - you never know the future usage of your gadget. So I want to be on the safe side.

    In my opinion, you made a smart decision. Heck, I could easily get by with 64 GB of iPhone storage space. I currently have the 256 GB iPhone X and I know I wasted money getting the extra storage...

    I went with 64 GB. By the time I get it near full it would most likely be from pics/videos that I could just delete since I back them up to Google. Otherwise I am good.

    Coming from a 64gb Note 8 with a 256gb as card, I just got a 64gb xs Max. Got 200gb if iCloud space and relying on Google Photos.

    Do you shoot a lot of 4k video? That's a lot of storage used!
