    I got a 16GB iPhone, considering that I don't intend to put days' worth of music, lots of video or other bulky stuff on it. I guess it'll have space for lots of applications still.

    The real space available will be closer to 13GB though, as iOS takes space and so do the apps.

    If you are constantly listening to music on the go, you may think about a 32GB model. On my 32GB iPad the real available space is 27GB. Could be slightly more on a 32GB iPhone.

    Exactly why do people need a 64GB iPhone, escapes me... video on the phone is not that stellar experience and I can't think of anything else that takes that much space.

    However I opted for a 32GB iPad WiFi+4G, considering that I may want to put some films on it to watch in Hi Def on a business trip, and have music to listen on the go, including while on a plane.

  • It all depends on what you intend to get out of your phone. If you plan to store a large amount of pictures, music, books, etc.... then the 32 GB is for you. I have to 16GB now because i rarely take many pictures or load a lot of music or things like that on my phone.

  • I use my iPhone as a phone mainly and for texting but it is nice to have the space if you want to listen to your music collection or watch a movie. The video on my iPhone 4s is fantastic, and I've spent many an hour waiting places watching Netflix on my phone with the earplugs in. I'd go for the 32gb. The last time I got the smaller version and surprisingly, I found out I needed more room, and I don't play games. I find photos that I shoot and video take up room also that I had not thought of when I got the smaller model but that was my first smartphone.

  • It depends on what you're using your iPhone for. If you've already skipped the 64GB as an option, then obviously you need a little bit less of room. If you feel like you are going to use your smartphone every day for few of the things you do, you should purchase the 16GB. If you will use it mostly in your daily life, then the 32G is probably the right way to go. I hope this helps!

  • I have 64G and always max out for any updates and yes I use iCloud. Currently using an i4. The video IS great - stellar, hmm? -- compared to what? I connect my iPhone to a HD TV for my family when I visit using an inexpensive HDMI/power dongle. They watch the videos of themselves and my journeys, photos, NetFlix (Dora the Explorer and more); basically, anything I have on the iPhone.
    The video/audio might be improved if recorded from different input devices but, hey, it is a phone.
    Lastly, when I use high end equipment to record/video humans, people become too self conscience - the majority of people are not actors, models, politicians (joke) so it is important for a relaxed environment. A small phone works.
    Peace, and have fun within your budget.
