Getting at least the 128GB is futureproof if you are gonna use it for long term.

32GB more than enough. Future proof also enough.

I have been using various iPhone models with the minimum storage capacity all these years. So far, I don't see myself running out of storage since I rarely take photos and videos and gaming on my iPhones. Currently, I have about 40 apps and 30 mp3 on my 16GB SE and left with 7GB storage.

Having say that, having some extra storage for buffer would be good coz one will never knows when that storage is needed. Like going on a overseas vacation and the camera malfunction. the iPhone comes in handy with some extra storage.

It depends very much on the user's styles; will you be taking and storing the photos and videos, storing all music and gaming apps or like me who store the few essential apps and seldom take photos and video? Only the user knows.

For me not enough, my iPhone 6s Plus 128GB now left with about 10GB. My photos and videos took up about 40-50GB, the rest is apps and games. I only have about like 20+ songs in my iPhone 6s Plus, but that's okay cause I am using Note7 as my MP3 player.

Im glad that Apple releases 256GB for iPhone 7 Plus, if they didn't, upgrade to iPhone 7 Plus also no use, my phone still will stuck with 10GB left as I am intending to transfer every single thing into the new iPhone 7 Plus which I am getting in December. Hopefully the stocks will come by then and I can survive with my current 6s Plus for 1 month.

That is because you have poor storage management skill.

what if multiple device use same apple id with icloud storage purchase.
trying to mitigate the contacts parts, unless contacts dont enable on cloud but phone backup contacts wont be included right?

for me, each apple device should have its own iCloud account, less problem on sync and less confusion.

the only sharing part is the iTunes/App store acoount.
