  • Now this is very interesting - the 'Fairphone' - which is ethically made, runs on Android and will last 5 years.
    You can even repair it yourself!
    It's got a great review in the Guardian.

  • I went for 🍎cos adore my iPad, so having had the lovely little reliable brick for soooo long, knew be big adjustment. Thought having iPad would help a bit.

    But boy oh boy, it’s a big big change! Sounds crazy calling the old phone a brick now, as this new bad boy is HUGE πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„, soooooo scared of dropping it! Soooo heavy! Need a case first before start using it. Getting used to it tho, set all the settings, and having the iPad already with an Apple account obviously made getting it set up a whole lot quicker via blue tooth πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘.

    So real early days, and just getting used to handling it at mo, and setting it all up, so putting the SIM in and going live with it hee πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ will be when get a case and feel more confident with it.

    Have got two weeks if wanna send it back, they’ve confirmed that’s fine even if opened and used πŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘but determined to grow to like it hopefully πŸ™. I remember how long it took me to adjust to iPad after laptop, I’d never ever had 🍎before, and now totally addicted to iPad and absolutely love it, so think be same with this πŸ™πŸ€³πŸ‘

    No hurry! I'm still using a 6S Plus which is now a whopping FOUR years old. Still finding new things it can do!

    I take it then that you never took the plunge. When you started this thread, you were thinking of upgrading. I don't blame you though, if your phone is working ok why go to the expense of replacing it

    Because I'm easily tempted by shiny new things @Duppy
    I may still - eventually - give Android a go instead of Apple. But, yes, you're right that it's not a must right now.
    Waiting to see what Google announces on 15 October.

    Thats the thing with πŸŽπŸ™„ No instructions, it’s all about finding out as you go along. I look back to when I got the iPad six years ago now πŸ™€and amazed how I picked it all up really, looking back. We do tho, don’t we, but as you say, always something new to learn. I’ve decided to try just stick to its basics, then any extras I can learn as I go along, and it’ll be a bonus. They always do way way way more than we need. Trying to learn it all in one go hurts my head!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • hi Bev
    if you find yourself at a loose end and willing to waste hours of your time (or maybe a few minutes...) look HERE HERE and HERE
    Also it may seem expensive but get yourself a decent case unless phone is insured , my case has saved the phone many times, the only downside is it makes it clunky. I do like it to be pretty but you can't have everything...
    Like marc mine is ancient, but it does almost everything I need (I say almost because it won't do certain things the later models will do).

  • Spent ages last night browsing cases our Wozeeta πŸ‘πŸ‘. Think it’s really essential after spending so much on a phone. So easy to drop or scratch as you say.

    I was like you for years, knowing my old faithful brick was doing all I needed πŸ‘but I really had to invest as it was absolutely covered in black tape to keep it together, bless it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚, and screen was soooooo on its last legs.
