Get as much memory as possible, is 32GB biggest Apple does? I have 16GB version and if I load on a couple of movies along with all the apps (games) it starts running low. iPlayer has a download watch later feature, so you can download when on wifi and watch later when you do not have wifi.
Don't have a smartphone. My technology requirements are quite simple I am just out of the house more than I used to be and would like something more mobile, and larger in size and more flexible than just a phone.
