in yet another questionable move by Apple (for the half doze of so Apple users here @ GMC) it now looks like the new iphone 7 32gb model is SIGNIFCANTLY slower than the more expesive 64gb and 128gn models. As if to punish folks for buy in to the low end of iphone scale. To make matters worse, there is no 16 gb version at att all, and the Intel based versions (iPhone Plus) are also quite slower. So unless you buy the two top teir, top priced versions of the iphone, expect it to feel a bit sluggish and in some cases slower than the iphone 6s!!!

Worse yet, there is currently not good way to charge your iphone 7 and listen with standard headphones. If you want to charge and listen, you have to get a pair of bluttooth ear buds or pay $149 for Apple Bluetooth ear buds. These are not even connected with a wire at this point leaving you to keep track of three items, the phone and both earphones which are separate units.

Apple stock has been sideways to down since Steve Jobs died. As a result they have switched to a "Profit Max" Model. Thus the fastest iphones are the priciest ones and they really are hoping you buy the pricey headphones built to work specifically with the iphone and still allow you to charge your phone. The last nail in the coffin in battery life. The new high end models have some of the worst battery perforamnce we've seen in new models. About 14 hours which is worse than the iphone6s. So not even a full 24 hour charge. All around expensive a bit lame IMHO.

I tried an android phone once and really missed the iphone. Now the top end android phone is exploding/burning up and they wont let them on air planes. sad.gif Not a great choice here, kind of like the election. I'm going to keep my 6s until a better contender at a similar price point arrives. That may be the iphone 8!

iPhone 7 has worse battery life than the iPhone 6S when new.

The S7 line has started having recalls as the big version has been MELTING and or EXPLODING and now they are not
allowed on planes as they are considered a bomb/fire hazard. The EDGE version, a bit further down the line, isn't known to explode but is known to get very hot and can damage itself simply due to the heat it creates. Here are some tips to keep your samsung from cooking itself.

After reading all this about the new s7 series, I will not be considering one for sure. My iphone 6s may be with me for a while, at least it won't catch fire, or melt it's own screen and has as much battery life as the iphone 7 32gb and is about as fast the lower end versions of the iphone 7. Unless you are willing to pay crazy prices and get an iphone 64/128 gb, I can't see a good option.

Fzalfa is a bit of a unix/windows guy, so I wouldn't expect him to be cheerleading smile.gif But just for Fzalfa, the code base of MAC OSX
is BASED ON FREE BSD LINUX and has been for some time now smile.gif So it's got it's UNIX roots in there, running true 64 bit and has
for quite some time. One the other hand, my iphone 6 won me back after suffering through "android lag" on a few android devices and the fact that music/video editing/production software is widely available on iphone/ipad devices and not on android (though there is some, like amplitude) for a very good reason. There is no standard on android devices, so until recently some were so slow that you couldn't run video/audio production software on them.

My ipad running AURIA with 24 tracks of audio is AWESOME, or running garage band. The ipad has really had a huge impact on the mobile production of music, so I can't agree that Apple has never done anything good since NEXT smile.gif They helped revolutionize mobile music production smile.gif Here is a quick vid. It can do 48 TRACKS and works with PRO TOOLS so that pro facilities can use it as well.

Yeah it's the Note that is catching fire. I've been using mine a fair bit today and it didn't get any hotter than my Sony Z3 Compact did.

To be fair though, I do use my phone mainly as a phone, txt and email machine with some web browsing during work breaks so I'm not pushing it hard.

BAD NEWS: sad.gif S7 Edge Phones are Catching Fire. Expect a Recall

Sadly, the EDGE series is not immune to the problem and reports of them catching fire are coming in. I'd expect a recall shortly. This article talks about it and gives several other options. I'm sticking with my Iphone 6s smile.gif

wow that sucks!!

I don't care about iphones, but i've been using my beloved ipad 3 for 4 over years now, and it's awesome.

I hope they are not doing these shady tricks on new ipads...
