HAHAHA Iphone, that says it all.. I have a cheapo Moto G. The big thing is its on an unlimited data plan for $25 a month. Cant keeep plan if I upgrade phone.. Its only 3 G even. But.. I can download stuff from Spotify and Audible phine. It texts, it phones, it takes pictures, it plays music, it plays audio books.. Could use more than 8gig but hey it cost me $129. The newest one is $189. so you could buy 4 new Moto Gs instead of 1 iphone. Break away from the herd, dont believe marketing.. For Gawds sake, get rid of all apples..
Then again there's smoke signals.
I don't need to break away from the herd, though.... and a big raspberry to Apple marketing. When I was looking to buy a mobile phone, I did look at an iPhone, as well as several Android based Samsung, LG and HTC models, but liked none of them and settled for a Nokia Lumia 820. For mine, it had the best UI and features of them all. Yeah, a lot of people were saying that Windows phones lacked the apps, but it didn't matter to me..... rarely ever used them. Nowadays I don't use phone apps at all, just calls and texts. Bought that phone 8 - 10 years ago and it is still going strong.
As for the 8gig, it seems a lot of new phones are coming out with that... the Windows Lumia 640 range being just a few.
