Just picked up a 7. My very first iPhone having come from Android which sadly died and it already feels like a massive backward step Puzzled

- The back button on apps being at the top left of the screen rather than next to the home button conveniently where your thumb actually is.

- Not being able to freely move app folders on the screen, rather that they snap in place and go from top left downwards. On Android I could place them where I wanted.

- No notification LED that flashes (green for whatsapp, blue for fb, yellow for snapchat etc).

- The apps feel poorly designed, much preferred them on Android, Instagram especially.

Maybe I'm just not used to change and it's a grower.

Im going to sell a 6 plus black in 64gb, waiting for the 7 to arrive in a coupe of weeks though. Anyone interested hit me up. works perfect, would benefit from a screen replace as there are a couple of cracks.

I've got a space grey 6s plus 128gb, just got it swapped out on warranty so it's brand new. Have put a screen protector on it and it's in a case so it's flawless. Anyone interested hit me up.

Buyer restrictions are advised if I sell on eBay, then.

I guess they're buying at any price then claiming they didn't get the phone…

Yeah saw that mate. I ordered the normal black so it was quicker but it's still looking like a long wait. Will be surprised if I get it the 15th Oct like planned.

I was going to get a 5 SE but bought a black 7 with 256gb. No regrets.

Longer battery life, a better camera and water resistance swayed it.

Went to get my screen fixed yesterday in the Apple Shop. Boy from work had it done a couple weeks back for £80ish. I was told that the prices have gone up to £120!

Nothing like a 50% price hike to sway you to buying their new stuff.

Cracks to top and bottom andlight ones over the screen, doesnt effect use. Comes with OG Box, plug and battered lead.
