    128 GB is enough for me. On my iPhone SE, I’ve only used about 55 GB of the storage. Not only is 512 GB overkill for me, but it would probably destroy my wallet. However, I’m sure some people use that amount of storage for 4K videos and would find it more useful.

    I have used an iPhone 4s before (it was my first phone) but since then, I use Android. Sure, Apple is great for stability and ease of use, but Android has so much more features, for so much cheaper. I personally use a Moto G5 Plus, which costs about $200. It has a fingerprint reader, a 4k camera, 1080p screen, good performance, and a metal design. $200!! Why would I ever pay $1000+ for a phone, when I can pay $200, or less. But hey, if that's what you want to buy, buy it. Also, I have 32GB and it's plenty, even with a good camera. I use Google Photos and Onedrive to back up my photos, and even with 100+ apps, I'm fine, so I don't know why I would need 512GB.

    Not for a phone with ugly notch. Switch from iPhone to Android to because of this.

    Apple products are for kids, that is why they are all simplified and work exactly the same.

    Video chews up a lot of storage. The video quality on these devices is great. Cloud storage implies a reliance on WiFi or increased 4g data usage. Still better to have the data (music/pics/video/apps) all you your possession. People who say “it’s just a phone” don’t get it. So yeah, really hoping they up the storage to 512gb (hell, I’d even splurge for 1tb)

    Josh,

    It's all subjective, It's comparing red apples to green apples. At the end of the day it's just a cell phone you don't have to get all defensive about who uses what lol. You need to get out more bud and enjoy the finer things in life instead of being a cheerleader for Samsung.

  • Lou - 1 year ago

    I may consider paying premium for 512GB including touch ID.

  • Josh - 1 year ago

    Hey muscleflex, apple doesn't sell more phones than Samsung, not even close and Apple is about to succumb to 3rd place in sales. Apple also wasn't the first touchscreen phone available to consumers, IBM Simon did it a decade earlier. Apple uses the screens of Samsung technology and thus Samsung makes approximately $150 off of every iPhone X sale. Learn your facts and you'll look less stupid. Apple is for followers that need to be told how to use their phones, Samsung and Android allow the user to be a leader on how their device is used.

  • Josh - 1 year ago

    Why on earth would anyone buy these to begin with? Get an android that can now have up to 1 tb of storage or buy a phone that has 32 gb and add 512 gb later when you need it. This is a ploy and has been for some time to ensure you will need more storage in the future and thus required to upgrade to the newest iPhone. Quit using a phone that tells you how to use it and get one that you decide how your experience is.

  • ANNIS JOHN - 1 year ago

    It’s like buying a car. They offer a range of storage. You buy what you want, maybe not what you need.
    At least your not forced to buy what you don’t want. Seem simple to me.

  • Chris - 1 year ago

    What takes up most space on our phones? Pictures and video. Google photos allows unlimited storage of these things. Why pay for that extra space? And for music/space, there's Amazon and Google music/drive. Even if you paid for monthly storage from Google, which won't get hacked by a 16 year old, it'll be cheaper and can be used with your next phone / computer / tablet. Am I missing something? No.

    Nowadays, we are using cloud system~! No more offline disk a lot.

  • Spasu - 1 year ago

    There is a limit to what mobile phones can now offer. Screen size, finger id, face recognition, storage, cameras, AR.....now what. Rather than pay a premium for 512GB, which is way too much storage than what is required for a normal user, I would ask for an iPhone with its own pencil support and dual SIM.

  • ok - 1 year ago

    I can't even use up the 16GBs on my phone, let alone 512GBs. Why would you even need that much storage in any device?

  • Marcus - 1 year ago

    I waited until the iPhone 8 Plus came out with the 256 to upgrade from a six plus. While the idea of extended battery life is appealing, one can turn down the screen brightness in a pinch.
    I called 911 for all seven of my heart attacks, so I keep my phone with me at all times. My son bought me an external power source to carry also. I have lots of music that I write and carry on my phone. I also have 11 days worth of songs from albums I own so the increased space for me is very attractive. I can plug my guitar(s) into my irig and phone and work on songs. Or load my photos from my camera and use the iPad to touch them up or crop. It beats carrying my old external HD and a bunch of cables.

    I don’t even use 64 GB now, and I have nearly 4000 photos and videos. I think the prices are reasonable, though, given that iPhones are not just phones. They are sophisticated cameras, video recorders, computers, and GPS systems, not to mention all the amazing things that can be done with apps, many of which are free. $1000 for all this is s steal!

  • Rich - 1 year ago

    Apple is too expensive to keep on like this. With internally fixed memory being the only option vs. SD card, the more storage represents a thicker chain locking one into their ecosystem. The path with Apple was too confining so I transitioned to Android a year ago.

  • Frank the Beaner - 1 year ago

    I’m good with 256k. I only need it to store a few telephone numbers.

  • Arthur X. D. - 1 year ago

    How about adding a cellphone feature to the iPad mini (4) etc. I’d like that...perhaps with option of a different cell number.

  • James Graber - 1 year ago

    Between recording a lot of long duration 4K video, needing to access ISOs and ROMs, saving BluRay based movie images to view offline, and a number of other very storage intensive needs for my primary devices-whether it’s my primary iPhone or primary Android phone yes if 512GB is an option I’m certainly going to invest in it. For secondary devices without those needs, cloud storage features that offload less used apps and files eliminate the need to spring for larger storage in general. But if there’s a gap between 64GB and 256GB like there is right now on some models 64GB is still not enough there either.

  • Arturo - 1 year ago

    I have the 256 Gb iPhone X and I literally have pages of apps that I have never even opened just because I was like I paid for the storage so I’m gonna use it (just because 64gbs in 2018 was crappy) but 512gbs is total overkill

  • Muscleflex - 1 year ago

    To Mr Scam Sung, sorry I mean Mr Sam Sung.

    If Apple has such inferior products, than why is Apple a Trillion Doller Company? Why did Apple bring out the first touch screen phone and stupid Scamscum copy it? Why that scamming sung release the first bigger phone and when Apple did their first bigger phone it put scam scum to shame in sales, and millions of people got off the scamsung train when their phones blew up and scamsung phones wher banned from airports. Oh and also, one of scamsung ceo’s was thrown in jail for 5 years. And one more thing, as Steve Jobs said, Apple has given over $150 million to AIDS research. Scamsung reuses to give money for such a terrible cause. I mean, the Koreans don’t get the aids virus, oh yeah, AIDS was made up by Apple to get more money for their inferior products. Mr Sam Sung. Your a stupid f.....in idiot!!!

  • Dr. Sam Sung - 1 year ago

    I wouldn't buy ANY iGarbage from Crapple. Inferior product.

  • Boogaboo - 1 year ago

    I love my Samsung Galaxy 8+. I dropped a 256 GB card in my 64 GB phone and I'm good. I guess it's a generational thing but I'm not watching a movie on a 6" screen anyway.

  • DeeMcKy - 1 year ago

    Apple needs to allow users to insert additional memory storage. If Apple continues to increase iPhone prices and make its phones go obsolete in 2-3 years I will have to decide to go with another phone.

  • Bernard - 1 year ago

    Why 528 G when iCloud offers 4?

  • Tom - 1 year ago

    Price matters. If I get 512gb phone lower price with kind of netflix promotion, it would be a compelling choice. Watching movie on/off line would be an attractive and easy experince.

  • Glen Rasmussen - 1 year ago

    A long time iPhone user, and owner of a number of Apple products, I just upgraded to a 128 SE from 64 to hold my Tidal HiFi music collection. I do not want a mini ipad in my pocket, So I see no need for such a large Drive in a phone unless you had a specific need, or have no ability to do download/upload your content, unless you are on a extended trip?

  • X - 1 year ago

    People saying $150 iCloud storage for 15 month is the same price as the upgrade and you think that's better are exactly what Apple wants, so congrats. You two are perfect for each other.
    P.S. To the guy about the Android OEM, it already exists and is the reason why this poll was created

  • Andrew Bush - 1 year ago

    I agree with Adi. Bump up the ram to 6gb, and I'm sold.

  • Harold - 1 year ago

    If Apple comes out with a 512g model and no Android OEM does, that could lure me to the dark side.

  • Neil - 1 year ago

    For me the optimal size was 128gb. Don’t understand why they withdrew this. Hope the 2018 models bring this back.

  • Josh - 1 year ago

    Not a chance! 2 words.....cloud storage.

  • Jose Franco - 1 year ago

    It's not worth it. I have a 2TB iCloud for less than $10 USD a month. If I purchase a 512BG iPhone for $1000 USD and a year later they come out with another iPhone with more GB space and cheaper..., Not worth it !!!

  • Ryan - 1 year ago

    Honestly with iCloud Photo Library and iCloud Drive the need for phones to have so much storage isn't as strong anymore. The price difference in storage is what $150 between 64 and 256. For $150 I could have 1TB of iCloud storage for 15 months or 200GB for 37 months.

  • Adi - 1 year ago

    if that big storage option comes along with extra ram. Would love to see an iPhone with 6 gb ram, 6.5 inch screen and split-screen multitasking capabilities.

  • Wursteisen Patrick - 1 year ago

    Do you have any idea how much such a phone will cost in France?
    A fortune, just to own the latest IPhone !!!!!
    No thank you very much.
    I have owned 2 iPhones in 10 years, and believe I am some Apple geek.
    But wasting 1500€ or much more?
    NO.

  • Piggy wiggy - 1 year ago

    It would depend on my financial status.

  • Joe - 1 year ago

    Apple should be more opened about Bluetooth connection so, will be easy to share documents across devices!!
