But guys, there are many variables you have to consider, not EVERYONE have a thousand songs on their ipod, I personally have max of 400-500 [2.5-3 gb], and time to time I have 2-3 movies [1.5 GB] with 150 apps [7.8 GB] approx. That still leaves me about 2.5-4 GB free out of 16 on my itouch. [I can always take out apps to save space, not like Im using all the apps every day] I would say those remaining bits of memory should suffice for 720p video/pictures. You can always convert the 2.7 mb pictures to less memory and still retain most of the quality using a photography software.

I have a 32G 3GS, I always have 14-19Gs left to play with and I shoot a lot of pic and vids. Will be going back to the 16G.

I'll be happy when we have like a 300GB iPhone(:

I, for one, am happy they increased the battery size rather than added more room. Those recording times seem about right. I get about 3 hours of 720p 60fps on my Kodak PlaySport, so it stands to reason 30fps would be somewhat less.

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

After going back and watching the keynote, it appears that Apple is using real 720p HD (16:9 1280x720p vs the 4:3 I assumed at first). I have updated the page with the following calculations:
iPhone 4 video size for 250 mins if true 720p (1280 x 720):
( [1280 x 720 x 24] / 8 ) / 1024 = 2700 KB / frame
2700 KB/frame x 30 frames/sec = 81000 KB/sec
81000 KB/sec / 40 compression ratio = 2025 KB/s compressed
2025 KB/sec compressed * 250 min * 60 s / min * 1 MB / 1024 KB * 1GB / 1024 MB = 28.97 GB (For 1 min: 118 MB )

Why are people surprised that there is not a 64Gb version? AFAIK no one makes a 64K memory chip - do you guys know something I don't?
As for the file size, since when has video been stored as a series of stills rather than just the changes between each frame?He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

common apple where is the 64 gb version.... or give us at least a micro sd slot.. wtf??
06-13-2010, 02:15 PM #33
Personally I don't see the point in going for the 16gb version - as you can never have too much storage space.
I bought the iPhone 2G in 8gb, and changed to the 16gb one as soon as it came out as I didn't have enough space. Hopefully there will be a 64gb version eventually, and I can swap my 32gb one for a 64gb one!
Better having too much than too little - especially as the price difference isn't that much.

Now that you have decided 16GB or 32GB what about the colour, White or black????

How many times as the 64GB question been answered....does the iPod Touch not have 2x32GB chips....and no phone, gps, compass, camera etc chips. The iPod Touch probably has a smaller (physically) battery too cos it doesnt need to use as much power, the iPhone 4 has an even larger battery now than 3GS. Bottom line, there doesn't exist a single chip 64GB, so there is no room for two 32GB chips in the iPhone using it's current design.

16gb for me. I don't see myself storing my self shot videos on the phone itself. I have an HD recorder already.

Well if Apple gets the Cloud working there is no need for more memory. All your songs, movies, and apps will be in the clouds for you to grab, as long as you have wifi. Or until we get 4G

32gb black for me
i always buy the highend, is it really that worth to save $100? I pay more than that for my plan monthly! Also the resale value will be higher

For me this comes down to movies. Now that I have an iPad it's hard to imagine watching any movies on the iPhone. Without the iPad, I'd definitely be buying the 32GB version.
Regarding music: I have about 70GB of music, so I use smart playlists to make sure I don't waste space with music that I'll never listen to. I can get that down to a few gigs and that's really more than enough for me (and I only sync every few weeks).
Photos aren't an issue. I have over a thousand on my 3GS, but that's only 1.5GB or so.
720p video is something I've thought about. This is the maine feature I want in the iPhone 4, but my pattern is to take dozens of 1-2 minute clips of my kids. That's all I need and it'll never add up to more than a few gigs. I don't anticipate ever needing it for anything longer than 10 minutes or so.
Honestly, I have a 32GB 3GS but I'm seriously thinking about downgrading to a 16GB iPhone 4.
