Meh just had delivery attempt even though I was at home, they didn't even bother to leave a card.

 

 

REALLY hate that!! My driver takes away around 100 parcels a day from here so he tends to look after me pretty well :)  Even makes an after hours run if he know's something is urgent.

 

He also gets beer at Christmas and a free branded beanie, heh

Anyone upgrading from iPhone 6s Plus to Note 7? Would like to know if there was anything particular offered by Note 7 that got you to change over?

 

Particularly interested in the battery life and the speaker phone - i realise water proof phones dont have the best speakers (I do miss my HTC One's boomsound - the original One). 

 

Anyone going from S7 Edge to Note 7?

I'm upgrading from a iPhone 6s Plus, I upgrade phones annually, there is nothing wrong with the iPhone as it's still one of the fastest device on the market as well as sporting a premium design. I got the Note 7 because iPhone 7 leaks all point to the same design as iPhone 6/6s and no way I'm going to be using the same looking phone 3 years in a roll.

I am. I have never been an apple fan, 100% because of the 'locked' factor. I despise the way apple know whats best for the user and won't let you copy files onto your device.

 

Unfortunately I had no choice but to go with an iPhone as they simply had the best reception and were the only unit (I tried a huge amount of phones before surrendering to apple) that would keep a connection where I am. (its never a good look hanging up on customers when they are giving you their credit card details over the phone!)

 

I'm taking a leap of faith here and praying that the note 7 has better reception and also the providers have stepped up their game a little around here. I'll try the note for 2 weeks, if I have any connection issues it'll be onsold and I'll stay with the 6s+.

 

 

 

I did get used to iPhone and to honest I have enjoyed the new version significantly. My biggest issue is the file thing. I have to upload a bank file to our server each morning at 9am, its a very fast and simple job but needs to be every weekday. My iPhone cannot do this. Often i am not in front of a PC as I head to the gym or have meetings. I'ts really unacceptable in this day and age my $1600 phone can't perform this task. So basically i am voting with my feet. There are a few apps and the VR headset that i am looking forward to but these were not deal breakers.  I simply don't like being told what I can and cannot have on my own device. 

 

I expect battery life should be similar and I'd never use the in built speaker on any device to play music. So yeah, a pretty small thing at the end of the day that apple should have let me do.

Glad I didn't spend $1600 on this :-)

 

(Tongue in cheek, cognitively dissonant comment)
