On the plus side you get to act superior and condescending to anyone not using an iOS device, without having to justify any reason - so you can look forward to that.


The first rule of Iphone club is that you must tell everyone about iphone club! The second rule is you must act superior and condescending about being a member of iphone club!

I can't use the phone I am getting coz it's too small to see from (I need glasses). so it will be very discreet. until I get a G3 :D if someone would take it off me :D [getting the wife a 6+ and taking the 5S off her]

Funny that's how Android users make me feel as an iOS user. 


That's totally different - as an iPhone user you just wouldn't understand why an Android device is so much better, so not worth the time to explain.

(yes I am being facetious. I have a Lumia anyway)

That's really cheap for HN - are you sure that wasn't a G2? I've never seen the G3 there cheaper than late $800s (like it is now). Also, they only sell the 16GB model which has 2GB RAM; the parallel-imported 32GB model has 3GB RAM.

Joker - so what is your final call - is it to be an iPhone, an S4, a Z3 compact, a G3...?! (The price for the G3 on TM - is that the 16 or 32GB model? New or s/h?).

I have bought me wife an iphone 6+ (well when I say bought apple hasn't even replied my order - you can't get it outright in the shops I discovered!!!)

So I will take and use her 5S (with one eye on getting as much back on trademe and see if I'd go back to android tisamisu coffee gelato)

The day any rellie of mine does that will be the last time they hear from me.  Nothing about Apple annoys me more than the ring-fenced proprietary communications clique that is facetime

i would have thought that goes to the Zenfone LTE ... but i guess depends on whether you want many cores and pixels or not ... my phone has only basic uses ... even the S4 was way overkill but i bought it on impulse bcos of 4g and infrared blaster!

I'm over the moon with my LG g pro 2. Big screen, yet can be wielded with one hand when needed (shrink the display)
