My old iPhone 5s has finally gotten to the point of being replaced. I made it almost three years with it, which by most phone standards is pretty darn good nowadays. My biggest choice was if I should go iPhone 7 or 6s. I know that the headphone jack is an issue with the 7, but I might have a solution for that for my car that is arriving tomorrow. Otherwise, I really couldn’t come up with a good reason not to go with the 7, as it is fast, durable, and will be future proof for hopefully another 3 years.
Tonight the 7 arrived, and I’m just about done getting it all set back up to where I like it. So far I’m liking everything I’m seeing. Force touch is very cool, and I’m looking forward to trying out Apple Pay sometime. All my apps seem to work just fine, and I’ll give the camera a try when it’s daylight again. The biggest issue that I will have to get used to is the size. This is the largest phone I’ve ever owned, and I’ll need to get used to something so large in my pocket. I bought a basic Otterbox case for it and hopefully that will help me keep it in my hand, and not bouncing off the ground.
More to come on my experiences when I get more time with it, but for now it feels like a nice solid upgrade.
