Atmam Ali, 21 Dec 2016Can I replace my Xperia xa ultra with IPhone 7 plus.....? iPhone 7 is 10 times better. Just do it!
Bunyip22, 18 Dec 2016Pedro, long time no talk :-). My Note 7 was picked up last week.
I ended up ordering a Xiaomi... moreWell, I haven't gotten the ip7+ yet. 256 GB version suddenly became scarce in supply. Still using my Note 3, and just lasts me the entire day. It's 256 GB, or nothing. As far as I'm concerned, ip7+ is the iPhone that should have been, and it's a good first iPhone to try coming from years of Android. I just feel betrayed with the Note7, and I think going to the S7 Edge is a step back after the N7.
So I'd like to commit 2 years with the best iOS has to offer, and probably skip the Note8 entirely to teach Samsung that they could lose their best customer-users due to negligence, and bad decisions like the Note.5. ip7+ reviews have been generally positive.
My new iPhone 7 Plus 128GB jet black has a screen vibration issue when I'm playing audio.
When I am listening to a podcast, or playing a song, there seems to be excessive screen vibrations when I place my finger on the screen. It's like the audio vibrates the entire screen. I often like to put my phone in my front shirt pocket and play music / podcasts when I'm walking. Now it feels like i'm receiving vibrating text messages the whole time.
I don't have this issue with my 6 Plus and 6s Plus screens. Those screens are solid. I'm not sure if this is due to the new stereo speakers being much louder on the phone. Or maybe the screen is not glued on tight enough?
Anyone else notice this issue? Play some music or a podcast on your phone. Place finger on the screen. Does it vibrate excessively?
I did the math and with Verizon's current promotion I'm getting $596 for my Galaxy s6 to upgrade to iPhone 7+. So I guess im switching back to Apple
Best iPhone ever. The most significant changes in any one model in a long time, if not of all time. NOW, Apple's claims that their OS is designed specifically for their hardware, thus making everything more efficient does ring true. For a while, it seemed like lip-service when their cameras, RAM amount & dual rather than quad core cpus were being blown away spec-wise by cheaper Android brands. BUT that being said, I have found my old iPhone 5S to run more efficiently than an LG quad-core android with 2GB of RAM. Android is bloatware, a universal OS sold to multipal phone manufacturing companies with even MORE multiple combinations of hardware configs. It's literally IMPOSSIBLE to iron out all the bugs, and even when a brand customizes the OS somewhat for themselves, it usually sucks. Not to mention Android's very inefficient use of RAM, it's default settings that have a bazillion background services, startup apps, and location sharing features, push notifications, etc, turned on without even asking your preference, which most people aren't even aware of. A rooted Android with a slim custom ROM can be cool, but even a samsung galaxy S7 (supposedly "indestructible") is not only flimsy by design compared to the iPhone, but i know several people who work in the industry and told me they are so poorly made that they see as many cracked screens as ever. I do get annoyed by Apple's overly-proprietary approach at times. While it does keep the devices streamlined, user-friendly, and nearly impossible to screw up, i wish advanced users could jailbreak their phones more easily. This iOS 10 thing has gone on long enough! Or at least, like Android, check a preference to enable installing apps from alternative sources. But that'll never happen. It's a game of cat and mouse. The hackers find the pinhole to get in and root the iPhone, which then makes apple make the OS more secure in the next release. Then the hackers work harder. And apple makes more secure again. So in the end, it benefits the customer. But as someone who can't STAND any of my electronics with stock settings, I NEED MY JAILBREAK! What we're now starting to see more of are $10/year paid services that register your UDID and have a site or app where you can download signed apps under their developer account, the $10 fee being for them to register each "testing" device legitimately with Apple. Of course, this also allows people to install "modified," or "enhanced" versions of App Store apps, in addition to apps that are usually only available through cydia repositories. Now that I have T-Mobile, with BLAZING fast LTE and amazing coverage everywhere i go, that includes unlimited music & video streaming, 6GB of LTE to use for anything else, including (yes, i mean this....tethering), and should you hit the 6GB mark...guess what? They only throttle you down to 4 to 5 Mbps (their 3G speed) for the rest of the month, which is more than fast enough to stream HQ music & vid. And, my LTE benchmarks at 63Mbps at home, and the slowest i've benchmarked, with just plain 4G, was 19Mbps.
So, yeah, iPhone 7 Plus w/T-mobile...best phone & service. But of course Apple had to do the one really stupid thing of taking away the headphone port so you can't charge your phone while using the headphones or auxiliary jack. Why apple, why, much you always take something wonderful and make just 1 silly little mistake? I guess because no one else is as brilliant as Steve Jobs! Ok, done raving!

PedroTheNeighbor, 13 Dec 2016I'm no stranger to cloud backups. I still have to sync my independent 60GB of music, or some s... morePedro, long time no talk :-). My Note 7 was picked up last week.
I ended up ordering a Xiaomi Mi Mix today (AU$1100) as my GN4 was getting tired.
The camera is middle of the road but i couldn't go past the 6.4" screen, 256GB/6GB and 97 hour battery life in a device about the same size as the iPhone 7+ and V20. Will let you know how it goes when i get it.
