I used to carefully pick the perfect capacity size of each new Apple device I'd buy. With everything syncing between devices, photos getting larger and videos getting longer, I now just go with the largest size I can get.
This is my current iPhone.
Spending time juggling what data to keep on the device costs me too much. It's not worth my time or the interruptions. I'd like to see Apple bring the pricing in line with the rest of the world, but for now I'll pay the premium to keep my sanity.
