    What the heck are those options? How about including a simple ’not interested’ instead of trying to be funny?

    As much as I like iPhones, I don't feel the need to spend £600+ on one every year. *My 6S still works perfectly so I'm not interested in a replacement yet.

    £500something.

    I'm looking for a contract deal and they haven't changed at all in the past month I don't know how it all works though
    Ah don't like contracts myself as I feel like I'd end up paying for stuff I don't need ; like who the heck makes 3000 calls within a month lmao

    It'll be good to hear if Apple actually ditch the 3.5mm jack or not...

    If they do, they've had it. As people will not buy adaptors, will not buy new equipment and Bluetooth streaming can sometimes be unreliable, as well as battery intensive. (Not that you'd need new equipment if you don't have anything other than 3.5mm, which is my case.)

    If there is no 3.5mm jack, then demand for the iPhone 6S will shoot up.

    And then you have the issue of using your 3.5mm headphones (complete with adapter) whilst charging the device...
    Unless of course, the adapter is one that will allow you to charge your device at the same time as use your 3.5mm device?

    But Bluetooth headphones have to be charged up, so if they run out of juice then you've had it - plus, audio over bluetooth uses more battery versus audio over 3.5mm (as Bluetooth doesn't need to be left on with using 3.5mm earphones).

    Plus if the supplied AirPods break (if that's what they will be) then you've got to buy a completely new pair of headphones, rather than use your old, but perfectly functional, pair of 3.5mm headphones...

    I read the iphone one and viewed the ps4.
    my views are: ps4 pro I am aiming to get in the future.

    iphone 7 plus is appealing to a degree but the screen needs to be higher resolution, the ios device battery life seriously needs an overhall (if an almost 3 year old lumia handset can still get 2 days batterylife without battery saver despite the handset being dropped more or less on a daily basis), durability definitely needs to be better than the 6s (mum's on her 3rd iphone in the last 7 months).

    that being said, the camera looks like it can finally topple the 1020 lumia / 808 pureview's 41 megapixel sensors and if the above points minus screen resolution are met, I may get a 7 plus (overall im waiting next year summer before getting a new phone as I have heard interesting things coming from google and microsoft)

    if samsung stays tru to form, expect them to be half price around christmas time before the price increases again till the s8 comes out. speaking of the s8, a rather interesting patent popped up from samsung http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/samsung-pat...eously-1580129
