My previous upgrade was a little disastrous. Two years ago when my contract renewal came around I called up EE and discussed my upgrade options with them and settled on having an iPhone 6. Fast forward a week and it wasn't the phone that was delivered - they'd sent me an iPhone 6 plus and it was HUGE.
This was long before the time now where having a massive smart phone is a "thing" and I hated it to begin with, but I also didn't want to wait to send it back and be sent a new one so I stuck with it. It wasn't long before I fell in love with the massive screen which was great for working, blogging and taking photos. I bought a 360 degree phone cover to protect this ridiculous phone and I really did enjoy using it, despite it NEVER fitting in any pocket.
My latest upgrade has just passed, in line with the launch of the iPhone 7, which I wasn't interested in in the slightest. No headphone port? No thanks. More importantly with the purchase of a house (yeah that topic isn't going away from my blog anytime soon) I needed to make sure I had a cheaper contract and I was getting more for my money. Through the conversation with the really helpful advisor I settled on an iPhone 6s - but this one has double the memory and a massive 10GB of internet - up from 4GB and this comes in very handy when working on the house which has no internet. Youtube videos whilst working is the way forward.
At first the switch to a smaller phone was horrible, apart from being able to pop it in my pocket, I just hated a smaller screen. Watching any video on it wasn't as enjoyable and I was considering changing to the iPhone 6s plus or the iPhone 7 plus for this alone. But I stuck with it and now I am appreciating the other features, the more memory and internet, so I'm happy.
As with my iPhone 6 plus I've still kept the iRing on the back of the phone, it's just something I am used to now and I don't think I'll ever not have one on my phone. I am stupidly clumsy and this has stopped me dropping my phone as much. My other tip, these 360 degree phone cases are brilliant and fully protect your phone if you drop it.
