It is definitely not recommended to have too many images saved on your iPhone, and we suggest you to import pictures from iPhone to your home computer regularly. Why?
Suppose that there are more than 1,000 photos stored on your iPhone, which occupies near 2.5GB storage space on your 16GB iPhone, so move the photos to computer and then remove them from your iPhone can be a good way to release iPhone space. On the other hand, importing pictures from iPhone to computer hard drive is also a nice way to share with family or for backup.
