Which iphone 6 should I get? 16 gb or 64 gb?

Going to be getting an iphone 6 soon. Not sure what size memory to get? I know I'll likely want to take plenty of pictures and have apps and stuff. One review said that the 16 gb 1/3 of memory is taken up by the operating system? I will be getting this phone to have for a while I'd imagine. So don't want to get something that I won't be happy with for the long run. Should I go with the higher memory or can any one explain more that would favor the 16gb. Cause it is more $ the more memory you get.

If you're able to pay any amount for any iPhone get the biggest memory option you can.  If it was a phone with expandable memory, I'd say go the cheaper route, but some phones have 2 versions, one with smaller memory and camera and screen features, the other with better specs.  Usually the better options come in one package.  In this case, I say 64gb.

Only you can answer this question. Do you currently have a phone? How much memory does it have? Out of that memory, how much is still available?

"Plenty of pictures" means different things to different people. I feel I take "plenty of pictures" but the amount of pictures I take pales in comparison to how many I see others taking.

Personally, I would never purchase a phone which only has 16 GB of memory. That being said, I know several people who don't even come close to using all the memory on their 16 GB phones. We have no way of knowing which category you fall into and without knowing someone telling you to get the 64 GB versions could simply be getting you to spend additional money you don't necessarily have to spend.

Yeah right now I have a basic phone, so way to gauge what I would use. I'm sure once I get an iphone I'll be using it for everything like everyone else does. So maybe better off to go the 64 gb route. I don't think I wanna go as high as 128 though.
