I switched to a larger phone years ago and don't think I could go back to the smaller ones.


I went Nexus 6 --> iPhone 6 --> iPhone SE without a problem.

For all of Apple's faults, they have always done a good job with text and image resizing. I don't find myself straining to read from my SE at all.

It's not a question of being about to read text, the larger phone just feels better in my hands (I have big hands). It is also clutch for watching videos, texting, etc.

i'll probably get that new watch. i haven't worn a watch in years, and i've been waiting for the new one to come out. i'll probably hate it and never wear it again after a week.

We're getting to the point where most people may as well just be carrying around tablets with a data connection.

That would explain why tablet sales are down.

I wish the shared photo stream feature wasn't Apple exclusive. Even if I decided that everything else about the Apple ecosystem wasn't worth it anymore, I can't imagine giving up photo and video updates of my toddler niece and newborn nephew.

I got a 7 w/128GB last December. I woulda kept my 6 and been just as happy, if my oldest didn't drop his phone in the sink when I was away. It could have been saved, but my wife couldn't wait for it to dry out before she turned it on and watched it fry.

did she ever get that tattoo?


We're all waiting for pics.

Maybe for christmas.

Just share a folder on any online storage system. My best friend and I share a folder on Google Drive.

Getting the family elders and tech challenged folks to swap platforms is just crazy talk.

My mom nearly switched to the iphone for photo stream and pictures of the grandkids. I told her that was fucking dumb and she listened to me.
