3 days with the new iPhone – wow!
I am a huge phone junkie. Moving from phone to phone, painful. It will take me a week or so to get my apps back the way I like them on the new iPhone (I don’t like restoring so I am costing myself time not Apple).
Five things I love:
- Battery life is better
- I loved T-Mobile – but frankly their service on the East coast is horrible. I had LTE yesterday all day and even using my phone for over 2 hours of talking throughout the day – I still had more than 60% of a charge left.
- The screen is fantastic
- It just looks cool when you pull it out of your pocket
- Call clarity and call volume so far are excellent
What don’t I like?
- The lightening connector. I suspect Apple knew it, but I don’t like the connector. Sure its easy to insert and charge but when you switch connector types YOU HAVE TO FLOOD THE MARKET WITH THE CONNECTOR. Find a lightening connector anywhere but Apple? Nope. And they aren’t shipping until October. That means I have to carry one cable with me everywhere.
Overall the fit and finish is amazing. 10 years ago if you had asked me I would have said that fit and finish isn’t that important. Since then I have bought a mini-cooper and an iPhone. Fit and finish are critical. I was able to connect my iPhone to the mini in two seconds – it really is an amazing phone (and the car is bloody good as well). Other than my fussing about the connector – kudos to apple.
A more in depth review to come later.
