64Gb works just fine for me and, I suspect, the vast majority of people! …64Gb works just fine for me and, I suspect, the vast majority of people! Apple have got very good at seamless Cloud storage migration


Apps aren't getting any smaller and every smart object, bank, utility provider needs its own app. Spotify on my phone with its song cache takes up 10GB. I have 32GB of photos and videos. That's 42GB before I have installed any other apps......of which I have 200+. I am up to 146GB of storage used. Don't forget that the OS takes up space on that 64GB too.

Cloud storage has nothing to do with apps etc and no expand ability on iPhones makes the 64GB a very poor choice in 2020.
64GB - Is this of any use to anyone in 2020 who uses their phone for more than a phone? For £800 on a phone I would want at least 512GB.
64GB might be good enough for some people, I would not argue that, the crime here is shipping a £1,049 phone (Pro?) with that amount of memory.

64gb is plenty unless you want to store lots of movies on your device as the cloud is very good. I have an large capacity iPad for local storage of movies, music which is useful for flights with no internet.

Right, but that’s YOU. Even a 128GB base wouldn’t be enough, which is why higher storage tiers exist in the first place. Fringe cases like yours don’t apply to 99% of the population. With an unlimited data plan, I have no compulsion to carry 10GB worth of music on me at all times - I still carry 3GB offline. 25GB photo library is on iCloud for which I pay 69p a month - this takes just over 1.5GB of space for recent photos and thumbnail cache. With 90 apps including WhatsApp that I’ve backed up religiously since 2014 or so (4GB), I’m still only touching 32GB used with 32 available.

And that is just YOU.

I don't know anyone who has 64GB phones anymore, even my 70 year old dad's A50 has 128GB (and for around a 7th of the price of this "deal" £129 I paid). Other half had a 256gb iphone 7 until she got the 512gb S10. Everyone at work has 128GB+ iPhones, Galaxy's, Huwawei's etc.

I have cached music as it is of a higher quality of the streamed music. I also have a cloud sub for backups but keep media locally for ease of access and a higher quality.

90 apps is low in 2020. I always audit my apps but still can't get below 200. Yeah there are some I use infrequently so could install on demand but why should I do that. It's 2020...64gb of flash storage is less than a tenner. There is literally no excuse for Apple pushing out such a dire amount of storage on a flagship phone that shoots 4k video.

Dress it up and defend it however you want, its a pitiful amount in this day and age.

My 24Gb of photos live in iCloud with only thumbnails and full-sized recently used ones actually living on the handset.

As I said I have no issues with 64Gb...YMMV
I agree with comments above, 64gb is not sufficient anymore. Icloud storage comes at a cost too. however, 64gb is a good start up for those not taking much photos and vids, but very hard in this day and age. I am in the market for a new iPhone, but no way am I going for 64GB

Must have missed the point then. I access media all the time so don't want to be waiting on whatever connection I have to download it from the cloud so would rather have it on the phone. Afterall, I have 834GB of free space on my phone which is 13 times the space on this deal.
64GB might be good enough for some people, I would not argue that, the crime here is shipping a £1,049 phone (Pro?) with that amount of memory.

That jrw guy doesn’t understand how iOS works, the fact that you don’t cache photos on your phone anymore like his lagdroid does. It’s only thumbnails that are stored on the phone and everything else in the cloud. Then he comes and boasts about his high quality music collection.
I have an iPhone SE, 32gb, plenty of space left even with 68 GB of pics in the cloud, and runs way faster than 99% of androids although it’s 4 yo

I understand perfectly how it works.

Why would I want my photos on accessible on the cloud with just thumbnails visible. I tried it before and its slow, especially when waiting for a video to download.

It isn't my high quality music collection, its Spotify's - do you not know how Spotify works?

iPhone SE has never been a good phone and I very much doubt it would have ever run faster than 99% of androids.

Yet you call me an android fan boy with your derogatory comments about androids in favour of Apple? Nothing to do with Apple vs Android, you have just turned it into that. The argument is the fact that 64gb on a new phone in 2020 is totally inadequate and if the deal was for a S10 with 64GB storage (not that it has ever existed) then I would be saying the same thing. Saving grace with most androids is expandable storage anyway so a moot point.

No you’re right, I shouldn’t have tuned this into an android vs Apple.
The 32gb argument still stands. I’ll attach a video of my phone to prove my point. share.icloud.com/pho…0xg
I’d share a recording from my picture gallery so you can see it’s not slow at all, but I can’t share these pictures.

Slowness I was referring to when you want to for example show someone a video you have in the cloud and you have to wait for it to cache before it streams. Unless you have a 4g+ connection it is very slow and usually by the law of the sod, wherever you happen to be when you want to show someone a photo or a vid you have a crap data connection.

Regardless of this, why should I have to store everything in the cloud when manufacturers (ie Apple) should be shipping new phones with a min of 128gb storage - this is the total crux of the argument. Cloud is primarily a backup function at its core.

Have you tried icloud photo's recently? I find the device sized versions great and if you want the high resolution version pinch in and it takes a second to download but apart from pixel peeping I'm not sure why you'd want a high resolution version on a tiny screen anyway.

Is that on Android? Just asking because I have an iPhone 64GB, 80+ apps (only 1 game), lots of photos/video and some music (I stream most of it since I have a large enough data allowance) and I haven't run out of space yet. I think the experience with storage is different on iOS, there is a lot of options in place to avoid running out of space. I use iCloud for backup and it does a great job at offloading things I don't need. I would say that in most cases, 64GB is plenty but if you plan on gaming, or take a lot of videos you will need more storage.

So bottom line, for average people, 64GB is plenty, for gamers or advanced users go bigger.

Again, you are missing the point. Everyone that has said 64gb is enough is offloading to iCloud, so therefore highlighting the fact that 64GB isn't enough in this day and age!

I have no games. Android or Apple, makes no difference, I would still have the same apps installed as these are what i need/want/use on a daily, weekly, monthly basis.

Bottom line is, if you are offloading to iCloud then your storage isn't adequate!
Same applies for Android, I am not debating Android vs Apple at all, just the fact that Apple think its OK to sell phones in 2020 with 64GB of storage that isn't expandable.

I have both Android and iOS and there is definitely a difference on how the storage is used, especially when it comes to system updates.
I mentioned the iCloud offloading because it's a sensible option if you can't afford the bigger storage and want to stick with iOS.
In my case, I use iCloud for backup, not offloading, and even with a photo/video collection of 26GB I only use 51GB out of 64, that also include several mailboxes fully downloaded to my phone. Also I just checked, I am over 100 apps excluding built-in.

Let's agree to disagree, everyone as a right to an opinion, I won't hate you because you don't agree with me
all gone
64GB of storage is definitely workable IF you also pay for some iCloud storage too. I have a 200GB photo library, 200 apps, offline content etc., but iOS is pretty good at keeping it all in check at around 45-50GB used.

People are offloading to icloud/backup solutions as it's a nice safe and cost effective way to do things. I have 200gb in gphotos and i will never trust a single point of failure especially one that is in my possession 24/7. You'd be a fool to trust a phone for important things, even if you do a manual backup now and again. The amount of times a user has lost things because they forgot to do a manual backup is ridiculous.

Don't disagree but backing up and offloading because you don't have enough space are two entirely different things. Mine is auto backed up every night.

The SE was never a good phone? Sales figures suggested otherwise.

I’ve got a 64Gb iPhone XR and have no trouble. I’ve got all my Spotify music saved in the highest res (10GB) and about 2500 Photos/Videos on my phone in full res (20GB) and a lot of apps and have about 13GB left. That said, I delete photos and videos that I’m never going to look at again. If I had 32GB worth of photos and vids I’d be looking more at de-cluttering than just getting more storage.

It's because it was a "cheap" way into the apple eco system for all the apple fan boys who have to buy it because its apple. Doesn't mean it's good.

I do declutter my photos and videos but I take a lot of photos all the time for my job and for my hobby, so of those 32gb worth I refer to them often.

Again, missing the point that instead of defending the fact to the nth degree that 64gb is adequate because of xyz, it just doesnt stand because if you have to have xyz such as cloud storage, declutter of apps and media etc then it highlights that in fact 64gb isn't enough. Much like electric cars. If you have a ev with 100 mile range and do 80 miles a day without charging you will always have range anxiety. Might work for some but in this day and age evs need more than a 100mile range. Same applies with phones, they need more than 64gb. Especially when the cost of flash memory is pennies, this is more the point. £800 for 64gb.
