I can understand 128gb for an iPhone if you have a huge music library and you don't want to buy a separate iPod. And iTunes Match isn't quite ideal because you would have to download the music you want using your wifi connection BEFORE you leave your house, otherwise you'll blow thru your cellular data in no time.
Yes, you can turn two settings off to avoid music downloads on cellular, but then that means you can't listen to your own music when you want to - on the road/out and about - unless you remembered to download specific songs before you left your home wifi connection. iTunes Match isn't a perfect solution (yet) to having your own music available anytime/anywhere.
So you think to yourself, "Do I buy a lower memory iPhone (16 or 32gb) and a larger memory iPod (64gb)? Or do I buy one larger memory iPhone (128gb) as an all-in-one device?"
There continues to be nothing ‘flagship’ about a device too large to be used.

Apple is not a hardware company only. Mr Tim Cook said it himself.
Their software/services/customer experience is what sells the devices just as much as the beautiful hardware.
100,000,000 people say you are wrong
Where’s your source that one hundred million people have phones larger than 5”? You’ll notice that 100 million is smaller than 7 billion.
You’re not right, under every definition of the word. It smells so bright a mute man could hear it.
LOL. Clowns never give up
Needs fired. He’s honked his horn for the last time. No one this blitheringly idiotic has any right to continue being employed. He’s so monumentally stupid that he doesn’t know what FaceTime and Handoff are.
The article was about emerging markets. The idea is based on the presumption that many users in those markets can afford only a single computing device so they are attracted to a phablet with voice calling capabilities. It makes sense from that perspective. In the US people tend to have multiple devices of various sizes.
But why don't they just buy a laptop that makes phone calls?
32gb on the "base" would be sweet, but with iPhotos/iCloud + the huge shift to streaming music vs downloading, I can't ever see me needing 128gb on my phone. I still have room on my 16gb 5S.
95%+ of my music is ripped from my CD collection. Without iTunes Match (which I don't use) iCloud is much less useful for me. I'll take that 128GB please.
I think a lot of people forget that all devices have pros and cons. Mobile devices are all compromises of some sort or another, even laptops. My Mac Pro with 30" Cinema, Ricoh high volume color laser printer, along with my Avaya multiline business phone have only one compromise, they are not portable. People have differing needs, which is why there are so many choices in the mobile segment. Adding one more is just another possible selection for someone who is willing to accept a certain mix of compromises.
This is for the 5.5 model only
I knew you would hop in with the the justification for 128GB as justification to support the 5.5" theory! LMAO!
Don't be too disappointed if the 5.5 doesn't make the holiday shipping season.
survey. took a while but pretty accurate. about 100,000,000 peeps who bought Samdung S4, Samdung S5, Samdung Noty1, Samdung Noty2, Samdung Noty3. All are 5 inches or larger.
So any source on that?
Because Apple wants you to buy the larger, more expensive product.
Have you not been following Apple for the past few decades?
I don't know for sure what will be announced of course come Sept, but if the 128GB RAM is only available on the 5.5" phone, then I will not be the least bit surprised, as that is exactly what I am expecting Apple to do.
Why don't you use it?
It's only $25 bucks a year. I use it and it works pretty good.
I no longer have to waste any space or waste money on extra flash memory needed to keep tons of songs on any of my devices.
I do also!
We were just talking about this yesterday in another thread.
See my other post for why this isn’t proof.
When did Samsung lie about shipments?
Yeah, don’t try to move the goalposts with me. I’m the one who painted the lines on the field; I can see where they belong.
Also, additional lies and theft.
So no, no one intelligent, under any definition of the word, would trust anything Samsung says.

just because you have small mitts and are allergic to using two hands does not mean others are not.
You need to get out of your bubble and realize that MANY OTHER people have a different opinion about large phones than you do.
So Tallest Ski are you FINALLY going to admit I was RIGHT about the 5.5?
Show me an article where a high ranking SAMSUNG EMPLOYEE PUBLICLY gave false unit shipments.
I’ve already replied to this post; no need to repeat myself.
YOU ARE WRONG.
Yep, court cases sure are wrong¡
heard of OJ?
Court cases in which Samsung officials have to explicitly state the truth, which contradicts what the company said before the case sure are wrong¡ You’re intelligent enough to know exactly what I meant the first time. Quit grasping at straws and accept that your reasoning is based on utter nonsense and lies.
