    I got the 32gb last week because they didn't have the 64 gb. They have them now and I can exchange it but is it worth $100? I have about 12 gigs left on the 32gb model but don't know if that's enough for a while. What do you guys think I should do? Keep the 32 or get the 64 gb?

    I always think more storage is good. You get to store your precious photos and videos without worrying about how much storage you have left. In that sense, I would say 64gb is a good choice. That is what I ended up buying.

    I upgraded to the 64gb two days after I got the 32gb

    I felt the extra $100 was worth it. I knew that I would need the extra space. I download my Google Play tv show videos to watch off line at lunch, and that seemed to take a lot of memory on my S5. Even just one tv episode. Even though I tried to get everything I could on my card, it still seemed to be full or close to it. I'm trying to use the cloud more, but some things just have to be on the phone.

    I went for 64gb just so I don't have to worry about the storage.
    You can use a one drive or Google Drive to auto sync your pics and stuff whenever you're in wifi and just delete them off your phone after.

    Considering the price of these devices may as well get the best storage. At least that's how I did it. So 64gb is what I'm using now.

    Only you can really answer that question. Despite that, I think using Cloud storage can only help you...

    I too am considering an exchange for the 64. I got mine on day one and wanted 64 but there where none avaliable in the Columbus Metro area. I guess I could have waited but needed that instant gratification!

    I've got 32 GB on my Nexus 6. That's been plenty for me. I have around 14 GB free. But I use Google drive for work document storage and the cloud for a lot of my music and pics.

    It depends on how you use your phone. If you've never had more than about 16GB used, paying for more than 32GB probably isn't worth it. If you want to keep every picture you've ever taken on the phone at all times, it might be. (Or if you want your entire music collection on the hone. Or anything like that.) That's why I won't buy a phone without an external card. I carry 12 cards with me when I really need storage (like if I'm going to be taking pictures constantly for hours). No phone can match that.

    If you need the space then yes... If not don't worry about it.

    I would say yes. It goes fast. I am an external SD card guy, but outside of that option, apps will continue to store more cache, you will likely take more pictures, more video's, download more apps. Since it does not have an external sd card, you only have what you have internal. I would want the 64 personally. I have 32 on my current phone with an external sd card and my internal memory is still down to 6 gb available. I also have 25 gb on my sd card. If I had a Note 5, I would want the 64.

    If you feel like you need it, then yes. Go for it.

    I am assuming everyone who has been answering yes bought the phone outright, not leasing, correct? For some dumb reason, T-mobile won't just add $5 a month for a lease for the 64gb, they want you to put down $100. A total ripoff.

    I bought the 64 gb Note 5 on Verizon at best buy for $32/month. Also came with a free wireless charger. Extra storage is always a nice thing. With app sizes and pictures being higher quality, it's definitely worth it imo.

    I say go for it 64G is worth it I have a lot of music on my phone and with 6GB I still have about 44GB and that's with most of the music on have which is about 8GB so far. Cloud storage is a great option but I would do it for 100 more.

    While I would love to swap mine for the 64 it's apparently not an option in white on Verizon. Just got off the phone with a VZN. rep who couldn't even order one on his system. Not that I NEED 64 GBs but it's nice to have and helps with resale value.

    I bought the 64gb AT&T version using their Next program, $0 down.

    Hmm. It sounds like T-mobile are the only ones that can't figure out the correct pricing.
    I am not dropping an additional $100 for a phone that I might only have 6 months to a year.

    It depends on what type of user you are. I am a cloud user. All of my photos and videos are uploaded to the cloud in full quality, then erased off my phone once a month. I stream everything. I have zero music or movies on my phone. I use Spotify, Netflix, etc.. I've never had more than 20GB used on a phone, so it's a waste of $100 for me to buy the 64GB.
