Apple iPhone Thread

Discussion in 'Gadgets / Electronics / Laptops' started by gurjinder, Sep 8, 2014.

  1. I stick to one gen old iphone for price sake.
    just few weeks back, I moved up from iphone 4 to a space grey 32 gb 5S. very much at home. and the thing that i like most. it is so light at 112g with all power packed in. and not much liking the 5" size yet. probably if i use i migh find it ok. any way.
    I don't usually compare it with android phones specs wise. to me iphone 4 performed exceedingly well, only that after ios7 update things slowed.(sigh! could not downgrade) and 5s does all of it, and more and much better. so i hope this one serves me as much years (read 3) at least ;)

    Very much in the same situation. I own an iPhone4 and it is now slow. Looking at 5S 32GB.
    How much did you pay?? Where did you get it from?

    I used the first gen iphone for 5 years before I dropped it in a bucket of water. Wifi and speaker stopped working after that. I can still technically use it as ipod touch after syncing songs through itunes. I used an HTC phone for a year, after which it just stopped working one fine day. HTC didn't help much with repairs, and I had to let it go. I then purchased iPhone 5c Jan 2014, and used it till June, when the home button stopped working. I was using soft button for a while and finally I decided to bite the bullet and check with iCare whether that could be repaired. And, what Apple did pleasantly surprised me. They replaced an out of warranty 5c with a new one. I now have a new 5c, and I can chug along till probably 2017.

    I used Android for a year (HTC) and I switched to iOS, have been a happy customer since. I also have a 2011 MacBookPro, which works like a charm, and that is my personal computer.

    I bought Iphone 6, 9 months back and was having iphone 5 before that, which I used for a little more than 2 years. Iphone 6 is a brilliant phone, but the form factor is not to my liking. It is taller than many 5 inch phones which makes one hand operation a little difficult, specially when you are reading something while lying on bed. I thought I would get used to the size, but i haven't and I still feel iphone 5/5s size was perfect, and maybe i should have upgraded to iphone 5s rather than 6 ;)
  5. Well i got it (in fact both) thru craigslist USA as resold pieces. I made the deal & one of my friend(s) carried it while his India visit. This one was $290 and earlier one was $250 then. Both were <6months used while bought. The timing matched ( :( ) so much that my i4 back & front were shattered (but still working) just 2days before 5s reached my hands. Got panels replaced for 2.2k and is used as a spare phone/ipod now.

    Thank you for the info. I shall wait a few more months for 5S price to go down. Otherwise, I'll go for a MotoG. 35,000 (current 5S price) for a phone is too high price in Indian salaried person.

    The wait is over. Received my 6s yesterday. :)

    Initial Impression - Very much impressed.
    The new 3D touch (or force touch) is simply awesome.
