Really debating on getting the 128gb model since there's no 4K video recording but not sure if the space is really needed I can get the 64 free with T-Mobile and 200 for 128 so that really made me debate it for myself

I once thought I didn't need 64GB but now I'm deleting apps just to save space

Funny thing came to mind my first PC was a Packard Bell with 20mb hard drive and I thought I had enough space for life

I've had a lot of iPhones and always went with the lowest option until this time. I went with the 128gb and I don't think I'll regret it. I could upload my entire iTunes library, plus have plenty of rooms for apps, videos, photos, etc. My 16gb 5s has no music on it, and I can barely keep photos because of the amount of apps that I use.

When it comes to storage, it's better to have more than you need than need more than you have...

This!

Get as much storage as you can afford.

It's like my old golf coach used to say about wearing layers, "You can take off what you got on, but you can't put on what you don't got."

Even using cloud services (Apple Music, iCloud Photos, etc etc) I went 128GB, and I'll likely always get the most memory available. There is nothing worse than running out of memory and having to manage that. I have my new 6s+ pretty much setup and I have 75GB free... so that has to get me through the next year until the 7. And the $100 more that cost me (the 16GB does not exist in my mind so I base that on the 64GB model as the minimum) is well worth the headroom and peace of mind...

I don't need it...but that will probably only be the case for a couple more years, then I'll be moving up to the 128GB or whatever they offer at that point that is higher than 64GB. I usually float around 20GB of usable space as it is now with my 64GB variant, but as time goes on, and things improve in quality (but also increase in size), I'll probably be looking for a safer storage size like I did when 32GB became too small.

I have room in this 64gb phone but I don't mind the 128gb that T-Mobile is bumping me up to.

I just live by the old saying...."It's better to have and not need than to need and not have" ...This works for ME.

I SO agree with this. When I bought my iPad I got the 16G and I regretted it almost immediately.
I always max out on memory on everything. Don't know why I went low with the iPad.

It is a must now with the better picture quality plus the 128GB really holds its value in the long run if you ever have the need to sell it.

Not even a question for me. I want my music, photos and videos whenever and wherever. 128 or bust!

Same. 128gb is the new normal for me. Love all that space. Especially since my junk cleaners are not working anymore.
