My first thought was, “wow,” this looks nice. Then I went to set it up and after it was all done, I looked at it again, put it on the charger and got back to work. As a developer, I had access to ios8 months ago and besides the look of the phone, the real show is ios8. Unfortunately, there wasn’t anything left for me to do with the phone unless I wanted to play with ios8, which by now is pretty old.
Is it worth the upgrade?
Well, if you want the latest looks as I do, then go for it. Else, you can just upgrade to ios8 and experience the difference.
If you’ve been wondering if you should sign up with a 2 year contract or use AT&T’s NEXT, then it just all depends. I personally like my contract. But its because of one factor that no one is mentioning when looking at the prices; the trade-in value. So whatever your total cost is for either device, you have to give the phone back to your provider at the end of the monthly contract. On a 2 year contract, you simply sell it and make some of your money back which is usually between $100-$250.
