You'd think I'd be more excited about it, but I'm not.
I didn't really want a new phone, especially since ATT has stopped selling phones for super cheap with a 2 year contract. But the old iPhone 5s seemed to be on its last legs. So to speak.
The selfie camera didn't work any more. Not sure why I was worried about that, because I never took selfies.
The internal speaker didn't work any more. That was annoying. As much as it takes for me to make a phone call, I sure don't want to have to talk on the speaker phone every time.
Siri didn't work any more. I hated Siri, and never used it but by golly, I wanted it to work!
To be perfectly honest, I'd never really been pleased with my 5. I'd have bought a new phone long time ago if they weren't do darned expensive. I figured, heck, I'm working all these hours, might as well get something I need.
Funny thing, my new phone has 32G of memory. My first computer had only 7G. And that was considered "oodles of memory" at the time!
Two things I do like about the new phone is the camera seems so much clearer, and that I was able to download all my photos and apps from my iCloud backup. I didn't have that the last time I bought a new phone -- which would have been the old 5 -- and never could get that transfer app to work right.
I think the main reason I wanted a new phone is that I'm planning a little weekend excursion later this month, and needed something reliable.
But more about that later...
