Hey IT Nerd! I Want An iPhone 4S. Which One Should I Get? 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB?

This is a question I get a lot. What iPhone 4S should I get? 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB? It depends what type of user you are. Do you take lots of photos? Do you plan on using the video camera? Do you have a large music collection? Those are all factors that will influence which phone you buy. Not only that, but you have to remember that the iPhone is not expandable. So you must choose wisely. Here’s how I would make my decision:

  • If you just need a smartphone and you don’t plan on storing a lot of photos or music or apps on it, or you’re not a heavy video user, then get the 16GB version. If this is you, you’re not a person who’s going to need a lot of space. Thus you can get the entry level iPhone 4S.
  • If you’re the type that wants lots of apps and wants to leverage the 8MP camera for both stills and video, then the 32GB iPhone 4S is for you. You’ll need the space and have room left over.
  • If you’re a video or photo addict and you have a huge music library or you want every app that you can get, the 64GB iPhone 4S is for you. The video part is key. One hour of 1080p video takes up roughly 10GB of space. Thus you’re going to need 64GB.

Oh, for people looking for other smartphones, you can likely take this logic and apply it to whatever phone you’re looking at.
