I can't imagine how much you have to fill up a 64 GB. I own a 32 GB and own a lot of music yet I only have filled it up to around 25 GB.

Doesn't sound like the iPhone 5 will have it. Honestly, the rumors that are floating about the 5 are less than exciting. An odd shaped 4" screen, 1GB RAM....

The Galaxy S3 still seems better, although, I will reserve judgement until the WWDC.

I am guessing that the "odd shaped" screen will be 16:9 (aka 1.78:1), or at least that seems pretty likely to me. The iPhone currently is 1.5:1. If that's the case it won't be so odd. Rather, not odd at all. It will present an issue for apps, though, since probably at first most apps will still be 1.5:1 and therefore have bars on the sides. Eventually that will work itself out.

makes sense. The pixel ratio that was thrown around made it seem like a non 16:9

It might end up less than 16:9, but it will at least be closer to 16:9 than it is now. So any 16:9 content will be larger on screen with narrower black bars above and below. Of course this presumes that the leaked case is legit. We will find out.

I think the iPhone is shying away from ever needing to go that high in terms of storage since there are so many streaming options. I have a huge music library as well but I use audiogalaxy and I have access to a TB of music on my hard drive at home from anywhere. It works really well and the technology is only going to get better. Netflix works great and there are a some pretty good video streaming solutions as well. IMO, in 20 years everything will be in the cloud or something like it and you will be always connected and everything will be available but you won't need to store anything locally.

the main issue I see is capped data from phone companies. I would not want to stream music all day at work over my cell network.

For me the problem with streaming music is that none of the ones I've tried can play tracks seamlessly. For some this won't matter, but if you have albums that have songs that are supposed to transition seamlessly, then i's pretty jarring to hear a hiccup of silence between the two tracks. It drives me bonkers. So I'll listen to internet radio streams (Indie Pop Rocks, mostly), but for my own music I want the albums on my iPhone where they'll play flawlessly.

If anybody knows of a streaming music player that can play seamlessly, I'd love to know about it.

Me neither but when I'm at work I use the wifi signal here. I also think we are headed to wifi coverage everywhere at some point in the future so the data caps will be less of an issue as well. I do wish there was a true unlimited data option on my phone though - I get to 2GB pretty fast just listening to Stitcher in the car on the way to and from work.

yeah, this is annoying but a small price to pay in the grant scheme of things, IMO. I also have to assume that this will be fixed somehow in the future.

I will never get WiFi at my work...at least anytime soon. Security issues.....thus, the streaming aspect for me is not desirable (unless I had unlimited Data). It would be nice if the iPhone had expandable storage...although, I'm not complaining about 16GB. I have a 16GB card in my Dell Streak, and I never fill it up. I'll just rotate my music to what I want to listen too.

I'm just torn what to get when my contract is up in August. I'm leaning towards making the jump to iOS, but the Samsung Note 2 seems nice.

Damn - no wifi at work? That would blow. Rotating 16GB worth of music in theory should be OK because that's a ton of stuff but if you are like me then you probably have a ton more than that at home and you want access to all of it all of the time because you never know what you will be in the mood to listen to. Maybe you can get a 500GB external hard drive on the cheap and hook it up to your work computer?

Nope....USB is forbidden also. I can only use it to charge my phone. It's not really a BIG issue for me, but I can see others having issues with the data cap and streaming everything.
