    Which iPhone 5 flavor would you choose & why?
    Factory unlocked iPhones or subsidized iPhones apply to this post.

    My first 16GB Phone was the Nokia N900 and found that 16GB was just too tight, so for my iPhone 4, I went with 32GB, don't regret it a single bit, and with my next iPhone 5, I have already pre-order the 32GB one.

    My wife has a 16 and I have 32 gb iPhone 4. I found the 16gb to be little bit of a compromise but have not found a way to exhaust the 32 so I would say that is plenty for the vast majority of people.

    I am an IT guy though so I have gone and ordered a 64gb iPhone 5 because no one has ever said 'gee I really wish that I had less storage on this thing'

    I have the 32GB 4S and will be getting the 32GB iphone 5. I still have 12GB of storage available on my 4S so I didn't need to stretch to the 64GB

    I'm getting the 16gig version. I didn't get anywhere near filling up my 16gig iPhone 4 so don't really need to shell out the extra cash for the 32gig iPhone 5.

    I have ordered 16GB, after long time, you will find applications and games boring, so you delete them, and then you have endless storage space

    I've had a 32Gb iP4 for 2 years and early on I had all my CD collection (approx 350) stored on the phone which took up around 20Gb if I remember correct. However for the last year I have reduced the music down to about 10 albums so that I can fit all my apps on and always strugle to maintain 1Gb free if Im lucky. Remember its not necessarily apps themselves that take a lot of storage space, for me its the data I store in the apps. i.e. In my photo album I have around 5Gb, in PDFMaps I have around 7Gb. In FileExplorer I have around 4Gb of pdf docs. And then in I must have several Gb in Kindle, Zinrio mags and Kobo books. So it all depends on what your are using your phone for other than just a phone.
    For me I would like my iPhone to have around 500Gb. I think I will have to wait a while yet. In the meantime I will be soon getting a 64Gb iP5 and continue to manage what I store.
