I’ve only had about an hour to play around with it.

I mostly use my phone for messaging friends overseas, skimming this forum, taking pics of the kids and sharing them with family and watching movies/tv shows.

For doing that stuff it is a huge improvement on my old phone. The camera is impressive, video display is great and I now have memory to store shit. Plus it’s water ”proof”.

Worth the money or worth upgrading if you have a newish phone -probably not. But I’m still impressed how far thing have come in four years.
Hows the forum look on the larger screen?

Moar bigger!!!

Actually, not a lot different. I went fully planning to get the smaller phone - easier to stuff in a front pocket. But the jumbo really isn’t that much bigger irl.

This place is spending money on all the wrong stuff. Some IT manager comes by to help me set up my iPhone 7.

I don't know who had my work mobile number before, but I get strange text messages from people who clearly can't spell. Sometimes they ask to meet up. Today I received a message from Kathy who sent me 4 photographs and a video of her doing facial extractions. Remember me from Bossy Lady - no I bloody don't remember you.

I'm having the most issue with it on my iPad. Maybe it's how I do gestures but I always seem to spawn a split screen window. I wish there was a way to turn it off. I can't imagine doing the same on my corporate mobile which is an iPhone 7.

I think there are apps in the store. Might be worth checking on.

Since the last iOS update I have to think that the virtual keyboard has become more unintelligent. It deliberately mangles properly typed words with its autocorrect. I am using back space to correct the word league multiple times until I accept its suggestion of ue to finish the word so it leaves it alone. Baffling.

Why do I need 5G?

My father keeps talking about which mobile will support it. I don't watch streaming video on my mobile except to check out the odd music video on YouTube. I don't even stream music.

Then I was told I need it for IoT but neither of us own a vehicle. The thought of transmitting terabytes of data of my health and GPS location for contact tracing terrifies me.
