For $249, I had to get it for my mom to replace her old tablet. My mom loves games, so I was a little hesitant whether to get this 16gb or to get the 32gb. I just went ahead and got this one because I could just return it. When I got it, I immediately downloaded all the apps my mom needed. She had a total of just 5 game apps, and the storage went from 12gb to 9gb, and with all the updates, the storage is now down to 8gb. So if your are going to add a bunch of apps on your iPad, i suggest you buy the 32gb because even if you're just taking pictures, it is taking away a lot of space on your iPad. One thing I find disappointing about this is the quality of the pictures. The pictures are not high quality. They're kind of grainy that I'd rather use my own camera. But overall, it is fast and smooth. I highly recommend it for the price.
