    I couldn't go back to one unless apple went out of production now - for thats the only way I'll change.
    Just as you guys against apple products
    Not against apple

    I found it harder to operate and harder to find things than my Nokia
    If the phone feels like its easier to operate then one will easily change. When it feels like the os isnt seamless your not really gonna backwards.

    I think you are forgetting I own more apple devices than you do.

    In our house we have 5 iPads, one iPhone and 10 iPods.

    I don't have an issue with Apple in general. It does weird stuff, like for example when charging and using it to type, predictive text is horendous and that's caused by a keyboard failure to respond.

    Placing the curser back into a miss spelt word is tedious to the point you give up when on a much smaller phone with windows operating these issues where not there.

    I will wait to see iPhone 8.

    The camera in the early iPhones is what really kept me out of them. That can't be said today.

    As I buy my phones outright, apples price doesn't stack up.

    People talk about quality and so on.

    Apple will refuse to replace batteries in a time I find unacceptable for something that cost so much to purchase. A recondition unit isn't acceptable to me.

    They damage too easily. Granted the screen can be smashed and still function but in comparison to Nokia build quality, well it's no comparison. iPhones will not take the abuse Nokia phones will take when it comes to being dropped.

    It's a bit of a natural hazard at work so it's a major consideration.

    Paying 1300 makes no sense to me under these considerations.

    If you can get a phone 400 cheaper, that's a lot of money saved if it's supported as iOS is.

    iOS is a string selling point for Apple. Android isn't something I am used to but unless Apple come to their sense with pricing and realise people don't want to purchase under a plan all the time, they have priced themselves out of the market as far as I am concerned.
    History is a statement, the future is a question.

    I hated that typing while charging glitch, my 6S doesn't do it, so i'm assuming it was either a 5S hardware or software revision issue.

    The New Samsung exploda 8 starts at $1499 i think.

    Note 8:

    The Note 8 will be available from 22 September for AU$1,499. It will launch in Australia in two of the four colours Samsung is offering: midnight black and maple gold (alas no deep-sea blue or orchid- grey for us).

    Yep im the same, i replace iPhones on the biannual S revision, so the 7S is next cab.

    That said im pissed off they no longer have the headphone jack, so the 6S might do for now as its running fine.
