I retired my iPhone 5S this weekend in favour of the new iPhone 7 Plus. Why Apple again? Well the answer is simple, I have the rest of the ecosystem and the devices work magically together and it is personally what is best for me.
I bought the Rose Gold 256gb phone. I broke my FIIO X1 mp3 player(which I loved) a few months ago by spilling a bottle of water on it and thought that I’d finally give into using my phone as an mp3 player. Plus, this thing is water resistant and it makes commuting less awkward without 10,000 different devices.
The phone comes with the lightning charger, and also the new wired lightning earphones.
It also comes with the controversial dongle that allows you to plug other wired headphones into the jack.
I love the colour and shape of the new phone. I’m still waiting on a case I ordered online to come so for the time being it’s naked. I’m less OCD about scratches than I used to be.
The camera is stellar and so is the battery (in comparison to older iPhones). The size is something that still takes adjusting to. Why are smartphones getting bigger?
Bonus: I bought these screen protectors on eBay that were like 3 for $7. Always buy your accessories online!
I’m currently addicted to downloading apps on the new phone. So much space means I can finally download all the music and programs I want.
