It depends on what you use your phone for. Ds has the 5s 16gb and it's plenty of space for him. He keeps some music not there, but no movies or shows. Some pictures, but not a ton.

It really does depend on your use... 32 G wasn't enough for me I had to get the iPhone with 64G and that doesn't have much left

Get with her about her use... I have 3 iPods full of music ... That's all they are for... 2 iPads, Mac pro, and Mac desk top and still manage to use a lot of gigs on my phone

16 is not enough for me. Can't upgrade for a while. Had a 4 with 32. Loved it

I agree that it depends on what you do with it. I have a 64GB iPhone 5 and I have just over 17GB of remaining space. I also have an iPad of which I probably could have gotten away with a 32GB in that.

I had a 4S with 16 gigs and it was plenty of space for me. I just upgraded to the 5c with 16 gigs for both myself and my 16y/o. Target is offering the phone for $50 with a $50 target gift card until Christmas Eve.

My iphone through work is 16 MB and when I put all of my music on it, I was only able to have about 20 pictures on it! I ended up deleting music I didn't really want and now I can take pictures. I wouldn't buy 16 MB if it were a choice for me.

I have a 16 gb iPhone 4S. I just checked and have about 4 gb left. I don't have movies or anything on it, but do have some music (not a ton). I have some of my own apps but most are apps that the kids downloaded.

If you can afford it get the bigger one. Some apps and lots of music can eat it up fast. And you can't add later.

16 is plenty for me. I have my photos set to upload to Dropbox every time I plug my phone into the computer, so I can delete them off the phone. I don't keep every bit of music I own on my phone, either - I tend to rotate it out depending on what I'm into just then.

I have a 16 and just sync off my pictures. I have music and apps and no storage issues at all.

16 would not be enough for me but what I wanted was to have only one device to carry. I had an iPhone 4 with 32 gig and now have a iPhone 5s with 64 gig. I was running out of space on the 32 gig. I currently have plenty of space on my 64 gig but that is because I am missing music that I have not taken the time to add yet. I will have to do that soon.

I always believe you don't regret more memory room. Photos take up the biggest chunk of my phone. I also like music on my phone and for trips will download a movie or tv show to watch If i had to pick I would go 32.

Gina it is for my dd and she wants an I phone. I totally agree about the android but she really wants an I phone.

Keep in mind that the iphone c has more plastic than the iphone s. The use of plastic lowers the cost.
The s also has fingerprint swipe id, and a better camer.
