    Hey! I bought the iPhone 6 when it came out, and got it delivered on day 1.

    It's been a great phone, I still have it now.

    I tried going over to Samsung, and got the S7 edge. Absolutely fantastic phone, fantastic camera, and the Android system seemed better... like it seemed more secure in that if you tried turning the phone off when the screen was locked, it would ask for your passcode.

    Only thing is, I returned it. I did this because it just seemed too big, and although people use things like WhatsApp, I just got too used to iMessage and FaceTime. Plus apps like Instagram, which I use a lot, seemed to be a bit more clunky on Android.

    I'm not offending Android here... it's brilliant, and I'm not an 'Apple fanboy' or anything. I just believe the phone you have is the best for you.

    I was considering the iPhone 7 though. Is it decent? Or is it worth waiting for the next iPhone now?

    Thanks!

    I heard that since there wasn't anything 'revolutionary' about the 7, that we should expect big things from the 8 - if you got the cash, prepare to splash :giggle:

    The iph 7 is really cool, it's not revolutionized, but the clarity of the pictures is definitely improved, the sound as well and it's way faster.

    I have to tell you though, I find it really annoying that I can't use the headphones while I'm charging it. :rolleyes:

    I only bought it cause I had the iph 5s and I wanted a 6s or a 7, but I wouldn't say it's worth it if you have a newer model because they're basically the same. Wait for the new release.

    Considering a lot of people prefer the 6s over the 7 I see no point in upgrading. In fact what is actually wrong with your current phone? Why do you even need to upgrade now? IIRC this year marks Apple's 10th anniversary of the original iPhone. It's fair to expect something fairly major this year so if you desperately want an iPhone then wait it out.

    As far as Android goes, you can buy smaller devices than the S7 Edge and we are just starting to hit new phone season. The MWC event takes place at the end of the month and we are likely to get abunch of announcements. I think not being able to get used to a few apps shouldn't put you off Android. Either way though don't do anything yet.
