Is the 16Gb iPhone 6s is enough for me?

Hello.
I am planning to buy a new phone and i decided that i try and iPhone. But in my country iPhones are so expensive that i would buy only the 16gb model. I am NOT a heavy user.
I mainly use: - Facebook
-Youtube
-Instagram
-Snapchat
-Messenger
And sometimes i browse 9gag.
I don't keep that much music in my recent phone, just around 250. I like to take photos, but after watching them i either delete them, or sync them to my macbook. So i keep around 200 photos on my phone right now.
I would be happy if these things would fit for the 16Gb model. But of course i would like to hear your opinion. Thanks for helping me! :)

From what your usage sounds like, you should be fine...to an extent. If you are taking photos using the highest resolution, 200 photos will fill up your phone quickly.

Aside from that, I think you should be fine for the most part. Also, Instagram on the iPhone has a setting to automatically save a copy of what you upload on the phone to the phone. It would help to disable or turn that off. I'm not too sure about music but I would think that you would be fine there as well.

I would say no. Get a 32 or 64, you never know how your habits or circumstances may change/dictate. Also allow IOS room to grow.

I agree, although iPhone 6s doesn't come in a 32 GB variant. It would be 64 GB or 128 GB. Even better :)

I have 197 HD photos and 2 short clips for a total of 177 MB so it really isn't that much.

More is better. Maybe a 16GB iPhone is good for you... NOW! But think that your habits change and you need a phone with more capacity.. Are you going to buy a new one? If you can afford it go for a 64GB or more. If not and you think you just need the basic stuff the 16 GB model is right for you!

More is better. 16gb fills up FAST. I have 22gb free on my 128gb. 46gb of photos.

Everyone's needs are different... but in my honest opinion 16gb on a cell phone in 2016 is asinine.... If apple releases a 16gb iPhone 7 I am going to be scratching my head. for the price of an iPhone there is no excuse why 32 gb is not sold at a 16gb price range in this market.

No,not enough, you don't get 16Gb to play with after the OS is loaded.
