New thread for iPhone

I have decided and once I have decided there is no stopping me.
Only trouble is there is so much choice.
I don't need a new one, there are a few reconditioned ones in the link below, I think that will be good enough for me.

I would like a larger screen and a decent camera then thats one less thing to carry.
I would like it this afternoon, but tomorrow will have to do.
I'm not likely to ever have another so it needs to have things I don't even think about , but you others will.
I am always pleased with our Amazon service and whenever I need to phone I get an English speaking helper.

Can you clever clogses give me a bit of help please?

P.S. I choose iPhone because I am used to Apple things.

Depends on your budget, for the bigger screen I’d choose a 6plus s and go for the most memory you can afford.

Just ensure it’s not locked to a specific sim.

Jan, Iíve got a spare 4 and it is now too small for anything other than a spare. Donít consider one.

I had a 6S that I got when I first saw one and compared it to my 4. It is much better.

However, I drowned it in a lake playing golf, along with the clubs and trolley, and so I had to buy a new one.

I got, and still have a 7plus. It is lovely. I can watch skygo if I desire when out and about, and use it as a mini tablet. When I want to watch something bigger using my data then Iíll hotspot it to my iPad and use that.

Did no-one explain you're supposed to use the green bits of the field for golf?!

I have an iPhone 8+, so if you want a larger screen then go for the 6+ or dependant on your budget a 7+. I only have an 8+ as my grandson works for Apple and I used his staff discount and won't be changing it any time soon as its works for what I want.

The 8 has the same size screen 4.7" as the 6S I have ordered. Wos yours got mine hasn't
I won't be using it a lot, probably more at home than anywhere seeing as well as talking to my friends and relatives on whatsApp or facebook messenger.
I have only found out about these 2 ways to communicate in recent weeks and after talking to 4 people now I find it an excellent way of keeping in touch.
The Apps seem to work better on the mobiles than the Kindle as well I believe.

Don't think you can phone me every 5 minutes now you've found out how good looking I am.

I knew I should have taped over the front facing camera!

The problem with buying one as old as the 6S is as the IOS upgrades progress the older phones won't cope well with the new operating systems and won't be able to run the newer features, I would definately go for a newer one if I were you, saying that, some say that the iPhone 6S will be good for another 4 years yet
