Can data calls text be used in EU for free on this contract do you know?
It won't matter come the summer ☺
Is that definitely going to happen though? Bet they'll find a way of charging more or just not signing up for it!

Be aware that Argos and Carphone Warehouse Sim free iPhones will lock to the network of the first sim used.

​Nope. They don't. Carphone Warehouse ones still do though.
Personally I might prefer to pay John Lewis £20 more for a "free" second year warranty (and less hassle if you change your mind - Argos are as bad as Currys at this!)....still - a reasonable deal from Argos!

Edited By: BrianM on Feb 23, 2017 19:23
Looks like they no longer lock to the network of the 1st SIM used, it's been asked in the questions and answers section.

Hope this helps.

​It's not over a thousand pounds for an iPhone.

You're paying roughly retail for the phone and a few hundred on the allowance.

Please be aware your network will increase monthly prices in line with the base retail price index (RPI) each year in March during the length of your contract.
Good deal but the price can change anytime can
i've got over 13,000 songs on my 128gb 6s, so this would be no good for me :)

very nice deal though.

Was very tempted but no way would i want to be locked into a two year contract.
then open a very account,buy the iPhone 7 32 for £600
they have 20% off promo for 1st order making it £480 already a bargain and you can choose buy now pay later and pay in instalments for 12 months with zero interest added.
if it's not your first order they currently have a 10% off making it £540
and you can get a sim only contract or use pay as you go..
It's not 20% off iPhones or electricals when you make your first order. Only 10%.
Still very decent,considering you can pay in installments over 12 months with no interest added.


Yep. I got my 128gb iPhone 7 from them.

Having grown up using PC all it does it frustrate me and having had a chance recently to buy a 27 inch Mac I opted to build a PC as it would be better for what I wanted, photo editing. And as for the laptops well my M4700 with i7 3940xm processor would **** on any mac that you could throw at it.
We all grew up with PCs, but some of us have managed to adapt to OS X, and you haven't.
That laptop you have is the most vulgar thing I have ever set eyes on, creaking plastic that no doubt someone has to help you carry.
There is no way that it outperforms EVERY MacBook, it probably takes best part of 2 minutes to boot up.
I think it is an affordability thing.
An "affordability thing", you reckon hehehe!
To start with my M4700 is not the best thing to look at, I'll give you that it is for performance not for looking at, at the end of the day it is a laptop it is what it is for and it will last longer due to it being heavier and better built. And 2 minutes to boot try 10 seconds it has an SSD. Also because I am not weak or feeble and cannot carry anything heavier then a MacBook Pro or Air and I couldn't care less what people think of my laptop because it doesn't fit in at Starbucks or Costa, it does not mean that it is any less usable.
I have attempted numerous times using various OS X devices but it just doesn't seem right and my work flow is a lot faster on a PC then on a Mac and I Maintain that for what I do (photo editing) PC's are better then macs despite what most people think. It is your opinion and my opinion. What works better for me might not work for you.
And finally most people don't want to spend £7000 on macs and other devices that are apple and then not buy an iPhone, honestly that makes zero sense. I thought that the whole point in apple is to be unified and so that everything is compatible with one another.

If you could afford it, you'd go Apple. Let's not fudge the facts.


I have an iPhone and an iPad, it doesn't mean I want a Mac. It's that simple!


​So you've got the cheap stuff that Apple sell, but not the pricey items.

Make sure you scan any Chinese phone on arrival for malware/spyware. Most Chinese phones have it: https://www.cyberscoop.com/android-malware-china-huawei-zte-kryptowire-blu-products/
PS My DooGee had it. This free app is very useful at spotting it hidden in the firmware: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mobiledirection.Chinesemalwarebackdoorcheck
I bought my Doogee directly from Doogee on Amazon and it came clean. If you buy a Chinese phone for a third party supplier, the chances of having malware installed are increased. When I read about it, I found that it was because third party suppliers install custom roms on the phone. Maybe I am wrong but mine is clean. I even tried the tool you suggested (thanks by the way).

Got mine via GearBest, and tbh I was a bit surprised to find the malware. Fortunately, it was quite easy to neutralise it.

Then again, I seriously doubt my own info is of any real value to the Chinese (plus, I'm sure Google legally knows far more about me, lol)

what about Custom excise duty?
It's a lucky (or unlucky) draw if it gets picked for that. I didn't when I last got one.

Not sure if there's a difference from buying from HK or ES though?

If I order this phone, can I put my EE sim card in and it will work straight away, or does this require some kind of technical wizardry to set it up?
also on this and the Indian variant of the note 4 the black bezels around the screen appear to be thicker, and if there's one I can't stand on a phone, it's them! I have no idea as to why they are bigger than the original Chinese note 4 but it's so frustrating. it's normally a good gauge on buying a Chinese mobile in regards to build quality

I think you'll find the '4x' is purely just a colour scheme..
oli12345
of the Indian variant of course....
if you want a note 4 but better, there is a version, called, the redmi pro, basicly a note 4 upgrade :)
4X uses the Snapdragon 625, 4 uses MT6797.
There is the 4 Indian version which also uses Snapdragon as Xiaomi can't sell Mediatek in India, but I haven't seen that available anywhere outside India yet.
Redmi Pro uses MT6797 again, so not an upgrade to everyone.
so as I said the 4x is just a limited edition colour scheme of the Indian variant of the note 4, it's not an upgrade whatsoever, the 'x' is very misleading, the redmi pro uses an x25 where as the 4 uses a x20 chip, the Snapdragon 625 is not as fast as the x25. so as I say the redmi pro is a faster version of the note 4 (both versions soc625 & x20)
there is another difference not yet mentioned that being the note 4 is full metal bodied while the note 4x is plastic backed not metal this is explained in this miui forum article there's a nice unboxing vidio in there too which mentions this. link to article http://en.miui.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=511163&extra=&highlight=redmi%2Bnote%2B4x&page=1
​the Indian redmi note 4 is plastic. so again, the 4x is a colour scheme of the note 4 (Indian)
Not according to this review link http://www.gsmarena.com/xiaomi_launches_redmi_note_4_in_india-news-22845.php according to this review it is aluminium backed same as mtk note 4
Both the Indian Redmi Note 4 and the Redmi Note 4X use a construction that is the same as the Redmi Note 3. The main part of the back is still metal but the top and bottom is painted plastic to match the metal whereas the original Mediatek Redmi Note 4 has a metal unibody with antenna line construction. Saying "the note 4x is plastic backed not metal" is misleading. The difference in construction for the Indian Redmi Note 4 compared to the Chinese Mediatek is mentioned in this video @ 0:56. The Redmi Note 4X also has this metal with plastic top/bottom construction as shown in this video @ 3:04. The difference is also visually evident. Here's a side by side photohttps://i.gyazo.com/a05607f8c18de96f3985a517d1acc99d.png
As you can see the original Redmi Note 4 (left) has an antenna line and the top is the same shade as the main body. Whereas the Redmi Note 4X (right) is a slightly different shade for the top since it's painted plastic to match the main body, which is still metal.
Im sorry but you are wrong the note 4x has definetly got a plastic back look at this review off the miui.com forum site link http://en.miui.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=511163&extra=&highlight=redmi%2Bnote%2B4x&page=1 if you scroll down to the part headed DESIGN after the 2 photo's you will see this The Redmi Note 4X, like the Redmi Note 4, no longer has the curved sides that is present in the Redmi Note 3, but rather a little chamfered square edged corner that is present in the Redmi Pro and Redmi 3X. The unibody construction gives your the premium feel in your hands, it is not edgy and not very round, just enough to hold the phone comfortably in the hands. One noticeable change from Redmi Note 4X from Redmi Note 4 is its plastic battery cover versus metal from its predecessor, otherwise, nothing has changed. So you see the back is all plastic not just top and bottom
according to this review there could be a problem getting cases because it says some of the ports and camera and fingerprint scanner are in slightly different placement

Here are 2 threads that ask specifically about the top and bottom.
http://en.miui.com/thread-511863-1-1.html
http://en.miui.com/thread-508497-1-1.html
If the phone is all plastic back, I don't see why would people ask/discuss the top/bottom in particular rather than the back as a whole? Here is a spec comparison of the Note 4X, Indian SD Note 4 and Chinese Mediatek Note 4. According to spec sheet, the Note 4X and the Indian SD Note 4 weigh the same as each other, which is 10g less than the Original Mediatek. That would be odd if you're suggesting that only the Note 4X is "all plastic" but that the Indian Snapdragon Note 4 shares the same metal design as the original. Also when you do a web page translation of the Note 4X product page on both the Official Chinese and Taiwan MI sites, they say "metal body":
http://www.mi.com/redminote4x/
http://www.mi.com/tw/redminote4x/
So if it's indeed all plastic back, it would mean that's false advertising and the Techtablets video in my previous comment is mistaken.
also if you look at the unboxing video in the above mentioned miui review he accually tells you it is plastic backed

Im sorry but you are wrong the note 4x has definetly got a plastic back look at this review off the miui.com forum site link http://en.miui.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=511163&extra=&highlight=redmi%2Bnote%2B4x&page=1 if you scroll down to the part headed DESIGN after the 2 photo's you will see this The Redmi Note 4X, like the Redmi Note 4, no longer has the curved sides that is present in the Redmi Note 3, but rather a little chamfered square edged corner that is present in the Redmi Pro and Redmi 3X. The unibody construction gives your the premium feel in your hands, it is not edgy and not very round, just enough to hold the phone comfortably in the hands. One noticeable change from Redmi Note 4X from Redmi Note 4 is its plastic battery cover versus metal from its predecessor, otherwise, nothing has changed. So you see the back is all plastic not just top and bottom
according to this review there could be a problem getting cases because it says some of the ports and camera and fingerprint scanner are in slightly different placement

Considering the chinese or asian's build almost all the phones on the market today....that's a pretty stupid thing to say
Even the phone in your hand probably came from over there or has a vast number of parts from over there...

Go xiaomi and you'll never go back

£155 from O2, brand new on refresh.
The refresh thing looks complicated when I've read about this option before. Would they be locked too?

its easy enough to do, did it twice and once on PAYG no issues at all just make sure you keep a copy of webchats in case it goes wrong. you have to get it unlocked as part of the process, have a look at any of the hot threads they have a step by step process. saying that you can get a SE for about £75 more on o2 refresh probably a like new one, know I would be saving a little longer for that one.

Tree identifier.....they are the bid woody things growing out the ground!
On a more serious note though, when I was a kid I knew all the trees in our woods by their leaves. Now kids couldn't identify one due to constant gaming and tech toys, really sad. I learnt so much about nature by the cards they put in tea packets. Now you get a plastic toy to bin after 10 minutes play.
You mean Big. Not bid. :P
Yep, ta. ;)

You may not have been typical, though. When I was kid, I knew all the utility boxes and poles in our streets by their colour and outline, but could not confidently identify any tree by any of its features. I wouldn't be surprised if urban kids now are actually better at naming trees than I and my contemporaries were.
Just chew the leaf. Works every time.

in fairness it does look like a decent TPU case - nice and smooth without any horrible 'S Wave' nonsense ruining the lines. Are you not signing up for their 'reward club' in claiming this though? Seems like a bit of a faff if so.
Yeah same here, and I made sure they refunded me for wasting my time collecting it from the post office!
Yup, I had the same last time with a £1.50 charge for unpaid postage. I refused delivery and had it returned to sender. Avoid!

Avoid. They don't put the correct postage on the package, so you'll pay £1.50 for a piece of utter tat which is no good for anything but to throw in the nearest bin.

£196 for line rental saver
£50 off for Refer a friend
£50 off with code "HAVE50"
£14.99 Activation Charges
effectively £20.25 / month for 100mbs (12 months contract)


How do you stack the the 2 £50 codes together??

I have a refer a friend but to redeem it you have to click a link to the Virgin media site where the price is higher than what is on offer here!
I've just accepted "base tv, free weekend calls, 300mb homeworks+" all for £45 a month.

The uswitch would have been 35 for 200mb + £14 for homeworks+ so instead of £49 its £45 a month.
I haven't really saved anything over what I could have got as a new customer but at least I've got them to agree to something.

Prash_2k you are actually incorrect there. The unrestricted upload will not give you less lag. Lag would often be down to latency and you'll see this with ping tests. Just because you've gone from 12mb up to 20mb up OR you've gone from 6mb (you've uploaded too much on 12mb) to 20mb you will still have the same ping times. I get a faster ping on a 3mb BT line than I do on my 200mb virgin line. That's a 512k upload vs a 12meg upload. Obviously different servers will respond at a faster rate but the sheer upload speed bears no relevance to ping times so unless you are uploading lots of films or photos or something then you wont really be benefitting.

A side note is that if you've got lots of devices on your internal network and they're all fighting for the upstream traffic then the larger upload speed can help as your line wont be maxxed out. If you're in that situation you could just use prioritisation inside your own network to allow your traffic priority over others in your house.

The FUP is only for uploads anyway so when they sell it to "gamers" to let them get the latest updates quicker they're actually playing on peoples lack of understanding as the FUP wont ever apply to them getting their updates.

I have a hardcore gamer friend who uses his virgin media line for downloading updates and gaming during the day but when the evning kicks in he switches over to his BT Fiber line because the ping times are much better meaning he has less lag.

yay montecatini . thanks for that , I'm not surprised about the Z5's ANT+ , as the legacy devices pretty much all have ANT+ built in . It's the latest machines that let the side down. . The XA and the XA ultra are designated as ANT capable ( the qualification for this status though is with a microusb ANT stick). There is even an ANT stick for Apple machines. As I said though I prefer it built in especially for what I do. I'm almost 50 but going on 15. I've always been active ...I run , do 10km round trip walks to/from work ,ride MTB trials burpees ,scorpion kicks , supermans , mountainclimbers, mess around on Parralletes and powerbars , and Agility ladders , boulder training , spiderman crawl, do suspension training and skip rope & I always use a heart rate monitor. If you notice none of the stuff I do is in indoor gyms.. I believe in functional strength (although my kid bro disagrees) and use what's around me .. Thus being able to dash across a street , clamber over a fence ) break fall , roll is more important to me than being able to lift 100kg or whatever it is that gets lifted by gym enthusiasts lying on their backs. In my humble opinion when am I going to need to lie on my back and push up all that weight , there is a counter argument but it doesn't work for me A lot of gym goes are functionally strong but couldn't run 100 yards. Usually you build strength with bulk and end up sacrificing agility.
Agility ( speed) with strength ( weight / bulk) are diffic to maintain together at the same level.. Bruce Lee had it down to a T , he was very strong but also very quick. and this is what I strive to maintain daily. Street sports works for me. Don't get me wrong please . I do use kettlebells due to their unbalanced ( offset weight) and do turkish getups/ getdowns with a 28kg kettle. I also have a bulgarian bag (16kg powerwave) but yes all the workouts are geared toward agility without sacrificing power and would probably come under the street sports umbrella. I take it all a bit too seriously hence my yearning for a heart rate monitor that works when I want it to
Anyway to cut a long story short I train in various heart rate zones aerobic . anaerobic & flat out
A 45 min session with my HR monitor would prob yield better metric returns than someone going in the gym for 2 hours and taking the scattergun approach as at any point during my regimem I know what's happening with my metabolism
so for instance this evening after work I did a pure fatburn non stop skipping rope for 30+ min. With a heart rate monitor you can optimise you training zone . thus because I simply wanted to do a fat burn efficiently I stayed within 60-70% of the heart rate zone max for theoretical max for my age , I listen out for regular audio visual feedback and ramp up skipping effort if my HR begins to fall below 135 bpm and ease off if I begin to rise above 145bpm as any higher and I'd be going anaerobic and the fatburn efficiency would drop off . ..have a look below at my metrics and you'll notice that for 75% of my continuous nonstop 34 mins skipping session I stayed withing the body fat burn zone ( the blue section of the bar chart)..Highly efficient results. My body fat is under 20% ( I use a Lidl Sanitas smart scale to measure this..while not 100% accurate it works from a reference baseline) I don't always do fat burns sometimes I go anaerobic with for example fartleks on a local steep hill ( Eglington)
Anyway hoping I've not come across as showing off or anything, just trying to put across the immense benefits of heart rate training but to cap I weigh 15½ stone , very little of which is fat , am quite strong and can move fast despite the bulk.
I'll see you around.

Apologies to OP for continuing off-topic a bit, voted hot for the deal anyway....
But Holy smoke Darklight, I felt lazy enough before having read that, but now at a whole new level
One thing's clear my Endomondo app has been having a much easier time than yours
Fascinating stuff and although I'm harbouring perhaps more modest aspirations at this stage I'm actually quite inspired to look into this further and from slightly different perspective.
Lost over 3 stone few years back but crept back on, renewed incentive and from what started as a post on a mobile phone deal!
Never saw that coming!
Thanks for all the information, really insightful.
All the best

Affirmative Montecatini, no thanks necessary, glad to share, been good to chat & thanks for your help ,
popped into CPW during a lull at work today and tried a few phones, struck lucky with the ZTE Axon Mini & yes's to all the ANT Tester app tests. The handset does have a nice AMOLED display so might get it..£249 payg but going to have a scratch around the web tonight to see if I can't get it it cheaper

Anyway hoping I've not come across as showing off or anything, just trying to put across the immense benefits of heart rate training but to cap I weigh 15½ stone , very little of which is fat , am quite strong and can move fast despite the bulk.
I'll see you around.

Apologies to OP for continuing off-topic a bit, voted hot for the deal anyway....

But Holy smoke Darklight, I felt lazy enough before having read that, but now at a whole new level
One thing's clear my Endomondo app has been having a much easier time than yours

Fascinating stuff and although I'm harbouring perhaps more modest aspirations at this stage I'm actually quite inspired to look into this further and from slightly different perspective.

Lost over 3 stone few years back but crept back on, renewed incentive and from what started as a post on a mobile phone deal!

Never saw that coming!

Thanks for all the information, really insightful.

All the best

yay montecatini . thanks for that , I'm not surprised about the Z5's ANT+ , as the legacy devices pretty much all have ANT+ built in . It's the latest machines that let the side down. . The XA and the XA ultra are designated as ANT capable ( the qualification for this status though is with a microusb ANT stick). There is even an ANT stick for Apple machines. As I said though I prefer it built in especially for what I do. I'm almost 50 but going on 15. I've always been active ...I run , do 10km round trip walks to/from work ,ride MTB trials burpees ,scorpion kicks , supermans , mountainclimbers, mess around on Parralletes and powerbars , and Agility ladders , boulder training , spiderman crawl, do suspension training and skip rope & I always use a heart rate monitor. If you notice none of the stuff I do is in indoor gyms.. I believe in functional strength (although my kid bro disagrees) and use what's around me .. Thus being able to dash across a street , clamber over a fence ) break fall , roll is more important to me than being able to lift 100kg or whatever it is that gets lifted by gym enthusiasts lying on their backs. In my humble opinion when am I going to need to lie on my back and push up all that weight , there is a counter argument but it doesnt work for me A lot of gym goes are functionally srong but couldnt run 100 yards . Usually you build strength with bulk and end up sacrificing agility.
Agility ( speed) with strength ( weight / bulk) are diffic to maintain together at the same level.. Bruce Lee had it down to a T , he was very strong but also very quick. and this is what I strive to maintain daily. Street sports works for me. Don't get me wrong please . I do use kettlebells due to their unbalanced ( offset weight) and do turkish getups/ getdowns with a 28kg kettle. I also have a bulgarian bag (16kg powerwave) but yes all the workouts are geared toward agility without sacrificing power and would probably come under the street sports umbrella. I take it all a bit too seriously hence my yearning for a heart rate monitor that works when I want it to
Anyway to cut a long story short I train in various heart rate zones aerobic . anaerobic & flat out
A 45 min session with my HR monitor would prob yield better metric returns than someone going in the gym for 2 hours and taking the scattergun approach as at any point during my regimem I know what's happening with my metabolism
so for instance this evening after work I did a pure fatburn non stop skipping rope for 30+ min. With a heart rate monitor you can optimise you training zone . thus because I simply wanted to do a fat burn efficiently I stayed within 60-70% of the heart rate zone max for theoretical max for my age , I listen out for regular audio visual feedback and ramp up skipping effort if my HR begins to fall below 135 bpm and ease off if I begin to rise above 145bpm as any higher and I'd be going anaerobic and the fatburn efficiency would drop off . ..have a look below at my metrics and you'll notice that for 75% of my continuous nonstop 34 mins skipping session I stayed withing the body fat burn zone ( the blue section of the bar chart)..Highly efficient results. My body fat is under 20% ( I use a Lidl Sanitas smart scale to measure this..while not 100% accurate it works from a reference baseline) I don't always do fat burns sometimes I go anaerobic with for example fartleks on a local steep hill ( Eglington)

just be careful with reservations at Curry's as their reservation system is useless - twice now I've reserved something only to find that they'd put a display model down as inventory (different stores too). In fact when I went to buy a Nest cam recently multiple stores across the country said they had them in stock but they were all just the display model. If anyone has reserved one I would contact them via CS first and check they do actually have it

Is 16gb ok for this phone, ie, in respect of apps

Not for your average smart phone user. I have a 16gb one from work and it has 2gb spare, I have minimal apps on it, only pics (no videos), no music. The software alone takes up 2-4gb, you actually only have about 12gb for user apps and media... I don't know why apple even bother with 16gb model

How iPhone Changed the Game

In 2007, having already revolutionized the computer and music player industries, Apple and Steve Jobs introduced the product that would come revolutionize the mobile phone industry. Initially met with contempt by competitors such as Blackberry, the original iPhone had sold 6 million units by the time it was discontinued in 2008.

iPhones Through the Years

The original iPhone design combined the functionality of a touch screen iPod, a mobile phone and a non-WAP based mobile phone browser. These are all common place elements in today's market, so it may be hard to imagine how revolutionary the combination of these elements was for the time. Apple followed up with the iPhone 3G a year later, which brought forth high-speed connectivity and an app store that would become the standard format for almost all future app stores. The iPhone 3GS disappointed most users as it included little more than minor upgrades in performance and storage to the already existent features.

The next major upgrade would come in the shape of the iPhone 4, with a flat design, a high pixel screen and an integrated antennae upping the smartphone game stakes ahead of competitors that were slowing catching up with the next generation of mobile phone. By the time the iPhone 4S hit the market, Apple's marketing had done what it needed to make sure the public knew that the 'S' was now a standard marker for 'minor upgrade'. Thus, expectations were limited, as was disappointment in the limited number of changes on offer.

The first offering of the seventh generation saw little innovation beyond a severely slimmed-down design. The plastic-backed 5C arrived a little later as an attempt at a budget version of the iPhone 5. It was an attempt to compete with the low-cost android phones that were now common on the market at that time. Once again, the 'S' version of the seventh generation focused on upgrading the already existing features.

The iPhone 6/6 Plus and 6S/6S Plus dramatically revamped the screen size and resolution and incorporated the new iOS 8. These built on the previous generation but also saw the introduction 3D touch technology, which monitors how strongly you are pressing on the screen. This opens some interesting avenues, particularly for mobile gaming. The latest versions to date are the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus which feature an all-new 12MP camera and is resistant against dust and splash water.

iPhone 7: Next Generation Smartphone

The Big Question: iPhone vs. Android

Is iPhone better than Android and, if so, is the difference big enough to justify the extra cost? We're going to look at a few key categories to help breakdown difference between the two.

The Apps

At this stage, there really aren't many types of apps on iPhone that can't be found in a similar form on an Android device. In addition, as Google offers more freedom and less restriction when it comes to app development for its platform, there is more to be had when it comes to Android. Yet it can be argued that this creates its own issue for Android. A great deal of Android apps are niche and appeal to only the most hard-core residents of Geek-land. In contrast, iPhone apps are designed to be easily understood by everyone and straightforward to use. Plus, developers of top apps still tend to publish their apps on iOS first.

The Performance

Viewed through a purely functional lens, there is not much difference between the performance and speed of the top Android devices like the Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge in comparison to the iPhone 7/7Plus. That said, you are still likely to experience regular jerks and hiccups in Android device performance. It may not sound like much, but when you are using an iPhone, you do notice the silky smooth fluidity. But this is, as often in life, a matter of personal taste.

Updates to the OS

A regular complaint for Android, but one that still makes a big difference when it comes to choosing. When a new update to iOS comes out, you will very likely have access to it on your iPhone immediately. However, with Android, it may be years before you'll see your device updated. If you are not salivating over the thought of minor and major tweaks to your current OS, this may not be too big a factor. However, if something big does come along, you may be left out of the conversation about it in the office canteen.

The Most Common Deal-breaker: iOS

iPhone users commonly quote the operating system of the handset as the main reason why they don't switch to Android. While there are few stand out features available on iOS that don't have something comparable on Android, the difference here is in usability and smooth interface, which has always been a hallmark of Apple design. Again, if you are just looking for something that works, Android will get you there. The difference is one that seems to underwrite most of the differences mentioned above; that is that the iPhone usually manages to get you there more easily, with less confusion and minimal frustration. However, it is not all smooth sailing. Examples of drawbacks for iOS include an overdependence on the use of iTunes for music purposes and the absence of a default on-board file manager.

Fast charging

Currently, iPhones doesn´t offer a quick charge function which a lot of Android devices feature. This means you can charge your phone for the day in a really short amount of time.

Which iPhone is Right for You?

Which iPhone you should buy will depend on what you are after and what kind of smartphone user you are. The most recent generations of the iPhone are similar in many ways but each version is designed to cater to a particular user group. For instance, the iPhone 5S is perfect for those who want something with the basic iPhone features and look, but at a lower price than the larger models. The iPhone 6 is ideal for those who want something that looks like the real deal but cuts down on thickness and price by stripping away some features. The 6S boasts every top of the line feature the iPhone can deliver, but with a 4.7-inch display rather than a 5.5-inch, those who want a phone for viewing videos and serious browsing may want to look at the iPhone 6 Plus instead. The latter is iPhone's first step into the so called “phablet“ market. The iPhone 7 brings in excellent performance and longest battery life ever in an iPhone. It is furthermore resistant against splash water and dust and features a

The Voice of Apple

Many people were blown away by Siri, the voice-controlled assistant that was unveiled in 2011. While not every version contains the software, if you are looking at older generations as a possible purchase, bear in mind that the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5S all contain Siri.

Pros and Cons of the iPhone

There are pros and cons to buying an iPhone that you should be aware of before considering any version of the device. Here are a few of the most important.

Locked or Unlocked

Due to their significant cost, carriers that offer iPhones as part of a contract usually lock them to their network alone. You can usually get them unlocked by contacting your carrier but you will likely have to fulfil a particular criteria before they will do so. iPhones you have bought directly from Apple will usually be unlocked however it is always worthwhile checking this with the vendor in question before hand.

Problems with Batteries

There have been several high profile issues with batteries throughout the years when it comes to iPhones. You can bring it to a store to get it replaced, but in most cases it will have to be sent to the repair centre. If you are still under warranty, or the AppleCare extended warranty, it is free, but if you are outside the warranty it will cost you. If you are using an older iteration of the iPhone it may be more worthwhile putting your hard-earned cash towards a newer model.

Do iPhones Take SD-cards?

Many have criticized the absence of an SD card slot on almost all of the iPhones. However, while you can't use a card directly, you can purchase an adapter that will allow you to use a microSD card for memory expansion

Security

One of the major selling points for Mac has always been the lack of viruses designed to attack their systems. To date there are no documented cases of viruses for iOS. As time wears on this may change. However, it is certainly the case that iPhones, like other devices, can be hacked remotely. One way to lower your risk is the familiarize yourself with the kinds of hacking software that is circulating at the moment.

Functionality

Bluetooth: Though there has been debate in some forums on this point due to issues with the transfer of certain files, it is undoubtedly the case that iPhones support Bluetooth, though you do have to manually activate it in your settings.

NFC (Near Field Communication): As yet, no iPhone supports NFC functionality. Apple have instead opted for their own version called 'passbook', which relies on geolocation technology rather than the NFC chip.

Choosing a storage capacity: Choosing the right storage option will, naturally, depend on how you use your iPhone. If all you want to do is text, call and stream, 16GB version may be more than enough. However, weightier usage such as storing video, photos and hosting a large amount of apps may mean a large capacity storage is the best way to go. There are a host of device that fall in the middle of the range as well. You'll need to decide where on the spectrum you tend to fall.

Know What You Have Already Before Moving On

Deciding which model to upgrade to means knowing which model you currently have. If you have had it for multiple years, you may have forgotten which one you have. Identifying your iPhone model is pretty straightforward. If you look on the back of your iPhone, you'll set text in the format of "Model AXXXX". Match the model number to the number located on a checker page.

iPhone accessories

There are a massive range of accessories available for the iPhone. Which ones you will need depends on how you want to use it, but you can seriously expand the usefulness of your device by taking advantage of what is out there. For all you fitness freaks out there, the running band is a must-have. A great set of speakers will bring out the most from the music functionality. Waterproof casing is a no-brainer for obvious reasons. These are all old standards, however, there are constantly new and exciting extras being released for the device, so keep an eye out.

Where to Buy and Who to Buy From

You can purchase iPhones from Apple directly and their new iPhone upgrade program allows you to pay over 24 months, similar to carriers purchasing programs. Other major online retailers such as Amazon often offer competitive prices as well. Mobile phone service carriers are still probably the cheapest way to get your hands on an iPhone, though it will come with contract stipulations.

Upgrading effectively can often be a question of timing. If you got your phone from a carrier, they will likely have a set time you need to wait before being entitled to an upgrade, so check with them to find out what this timeline is. Also, it is good to keep abreast of upcoming versions, as you might find your iPhone is obsolete by the time you get round to selling it. For instance, the rumour mill has already begun on the iPhone 7 release later this year, so if you are packing an iPhone 4 or 5, now may be a good time to start thinking about offloading it.
