Today I regretted having only 2 GB on my Shuffle, because it meant I could not store the three most recent episodes of my favorite podcasts; but so far I have never used the full 16 GB on my 2nd Generation iPod Touch.
Now I am looking at replacing the iPod Touch and a very early Android cellphone with an iPhone 4S. The contract will be $1680 over two years, so the $200 cost difference between the 16GB and 64GB model verges on negligible; but I care; I could get the small size and donate $200 to pancreatic cancer research.
What are people doing with the second 16 or 48GB of storage on their iPhones? Movies? Whole music collections? DOS emulators?
Presumably people who have 16GB iPhones made that capacity choice based on what they thought their needs would be. For those who subsequently discovered that 16GB was not always enough, what were the circumstances?
First-hand answers are more useful than second-hand, though if you have a friend, colleague, or family member who frequently berates him or herself for being stingy with memory, the details would be useful too.
