How so you decide 16 or 32 gb?
Well, the title says it all, friends...

Should I get s new iPhone with 16 or 32 gb? I want to put all my music on it, I want to take photos and I would use it for emailing to etc. I don't know how it works, if you really need to save so much on it, maybe not...

Get as much as you can afford.

I have never regretted maxing out the space, but I have often regretted NOT doing it.

I had an 8 GB iPod Touch a few years back and it drove me nuts since I love to download apps. So when I got my 4S, I went right to 32. My 5S will be 32 as well.

Another vote for "max you can afford".

16GB wasn't enough for music and a few movies and apps, 32GB is unavailable, so I went for 64GB

You know, I don't have any music, movies, or podcasts. I'd consider myself pretty svelte in the app department: 136 total.

That's almost 12 GB right there. The 16 GB model is gimped IMO.

I too am in the "more is better" corner. While I've found that my 16GB iPhone 4S sort of forces me to pay attention to what apps I've downloaded that I really use, there are some apps that take a lot of room that I have had concerns about being able to use effectively because of the amount of free space I have. When I move up to the 5S, I'm looking very hard at a maxed out model. Similarly, when I finally move up from my iPad 2, its replacement will have a lot more storage than the 16GB I have.

I've already found this to be useful; we replaced my wife's first gen iPad with a Retina iPad Mini with 32GB for her "I only really want a great e-reader but..." uses. (Yeah, she does a lot more than just read on it.) With her first gen iPad, she was having to move books around now and then to be able to download more books. Now she doesn't have to do that, or other compromises in how she uses the device.

I tend to agree. There's certainly a subsection of users who will be just fine with 16GB, but if you really want to get the most of your phone you'll probably find it limiting. Still, it's better than the 4GB that I was forced to live with for a while with the original iPhone! (That was all I could get at the time.)
