It's always difficult to imagine new tech but I can't think of many things I use regularly on my iPhone now that the old ones didn't have anyway.

Besides making calls and texts, internet browsing and taking photos is pretty much all I use it for.

Sure little things like thumb print recognition help, but they are not really necessities.

Earth shattering stuff.

No doubt the legions of die-hards would say how revolutionary it is..

Quite.

They have run out of ideas. They canít make phones bigger due to practical reasons so they are going to have a difficult time selling this SE generation and then the iPhone 7 to the market. Perhaps the first time, they will have to show genuine innovation in order to tempt those who arenít Apple disciples to upgrade. The same goes for the other main players in the market too.

I also love how their iPad update for this cycle was based on exactly the same template as the SE. Better specs, smaller size, having exhausted the whole Ďletís make it biggerí concept.

Canít wait to see how they try to sell the next generation.

Which is a decent request, but unlikely to be resolved because battery technology just hasn't advanced. Apple won't change that.

You'll see that on the iPhone 7. It's already available on Android phones. My phone can charge for an entire day in about 40 minutes.

Thought night shift would be a gimmick, but it's actually very good.

While battery technology hasn't (greatly) improved, competitor devices offer significantly better performance than the iPhone - it is hard to say the Apple are at the cutting edge of battery life.

Usually works out better just to include it on your home insurance (if you have any).

Quite pricey separately, whereas on home insurance it tends to just be added at no extra cost.

oohhh that's not a bad idea

What is the private option

Can I ask a really thick question please. Im not really that familiar with ICloud and how it works. I stupidly choose the small 16GB iPhone 6 Plus model and I have a lot of photos and videos on there. I regularly need to delete some as the phone is full on memory. I pay about a quid a month to have some iCloud storage. I've just done a back up to iCloud and selected photos as one of the options. Does that mean the photos are stored on the cloud and if I delete my photo album I can retrieve the photos back at any time? I need to free up space but don't want to lose them. I don't have a laptop/desktop to put them on to sadly.

After years of slowly getting more annoyed with Apple as a company and it's total lack of flexibility I am really close to switching from and iPhone 6 to the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. In switching to Android what am I going to miss the most - will I live to regret it? I really want something with excellent battery life, decent camera, I don't use many apps just podcasts, strava and spotify plus a few games if bored - can I use the Samsung to read books from my Kindle as on Android?

Am I about to make some heinous error or be liberated?

If you like being locked in a box and being told what to eat and drink, stay with Apple.

If you like to have choice and freedom to do things your own way, choose Android.

If you don't like getting bent over and ****ed in arse, buy a OnePlus2.

android is a walled garden too

I looked at the OnePlus2 - but think a few reviews on here about battery life put me off... I know that they are good value but have found a reasonable (it's all relative) deal on the Galaxy if I trade in my iPhone 6 as collateral. Which I'll be delighted to do as above I have the 16GB version (was given it free as a hand me down by my former boss) and cannot cope with the permanent requirement to find space!

Perhaps, but being able to install apps outside of Google's control is a nice bonus. Expandable memory is another, add to that the plethora of design options when it comes to the actual Phone itself. Not needing iTunes either is pretty sweet.

I currently have an iPhone 5s as my Z2 smashed. It's alright. Does what i need it to do which is none of the above, funnily enough. I suppose it's what you want out of your phone. I just need 4G so i can watch HD Palace games at work.

Anyhow, from the reviews i've read, the 1+2 is a battery on par with the Iphone, LG and HTC. Apparently Samsung is miles ahead in that department, according to the review anyway. I'll be picking up a 1+2 later on this month or next month. For £250 you get a phone that out performs the iPhone 6S Plus. Not bad at all.
