    I'm looking into getting an Iphone 5. I currently have a DroidX which has been a great phone. I'm actually thinking of changing because there is a business application that I really need that android doesn't have. I'm probably going to have to get an Ipad too and I suppose there is also some advantage to being able to interface my phone and pad.

    My question: Is there any reason to get the 64gb Iphone if I don't plan to store a lot of music or video on it? I really don't want to take a chance of running the battery down listening to music and miss an important call. I have a 360 gig ipod that I can use for music or videos.

    The 32 gig phone is $100 cheaper and the 16 gig is $200 cheaper than the 64. That doesn't hurt either.

    If there is some reason other than music/video storage to get more memory, I will but I'd like to hear your opinions.

    Well, this worked out well. Perhaps I should bump this some time other than Saturday night.

    I would say no. I have a 32 gb iphone and never had an issue and i have movies and music on it. But i hear gay porn takes up 4x the memory of straight stuff so for you i change my answer to yes.

    I think it's also space for your apps. Having said that, I have the 16gb version and it's a lot of room.

    I have a 16gb and a few apps I have suck up some space. Originally I took an iPod around with me as well for my tunes and podcasts but eventually decided that it was stupid when I could just do it all with my phone. Now I wish I had at least a 32gb. If you are sure you won't ever put your music on there then you should be fine but I'd go bigger.....handling and keeping track of multiple devices is a PITA IMO.

    Sounds like the 16g will be fine.

    I got the 64GB just because I could, not that I will ever use close to that much space.

    The Droid has built in memory that most of the apps fit on. The SDHC card is pretty much only for music, videos, and photos although you can also store apps on them. Sounds like since the iphone only has the one memory source I ought to go 32 to make sure I don't run out of app space.

    Most apps are really small like 4 bytes :dadance: Yeah go with the 32. I had an 8g ipod Touch 1st gen and filled it easily with a few hundred songs, some apps and some downloaded O&A shows. My iPod touch 4th gen is 32 and it has plenty of room.

    App's alone aren't going to give you a problem with a 16g.
