IMO, a complete waste of money. First off, the phone freezing up in cold temperatures. Does this not give any indication of the lack of testing done on Apple'* part?

And like all other Apple phones, screens break when you look at them.

Also, the software needed to buy music, transfer pictures/music/documents from PC to phone and vice versa. With Droid phones, plug in, copy/paste. Done.

And to add another facepalm, apple has admitted a software glitch that caused phones to reboot...

They make Iphones for people in Southern California, not for working people in rural New York State......

Eh, I gave up on latest and greatest phones. As long as it does what I need without fuss (spotify, social media, web browsing) I don't think much of it.

Currently I am using an S7 Active that was an insurance replacement for an LG G4 that was an insurance replacement for a Nokia Lumia 1020.

I have to admit, I miss Windows Phone. I really liked it, shame it died from the lack of app support because no body used it because no body developed for it.

I have also quit looking at new phones since carriers moved to the 'pay full price for the phone' model, vs the 'Lock in contract for cheap phone' model. I have no business carrying around $1k in my pocket.

I plan to keep the S7 around until it gives me a good reason not to. My replacements were all a result of hardware failures thus far.

My Wife has a Iphone, she loves it and can use it without training or will to learn. That is the good thing about Iphones. It also does not have issues, doesn't crash, etc.

Like you Jolly, I have a older Samsung, I have a Note 4 I bought on Ebay used, nice phone but a ton of bloat ware and it does crash from time to time.

Lol, your not supposed to install the bloatware, that'* what causes the phones to crash, call random numbers, text random people etc etc.
