    Default Need advice on my first iphone

    Hello everyone. I need some advice on buying my first iphone.
    A little background-
    i'm from india (if that matters), currently eyeing at iphone 6(16gb - $720), and can easily get 5S and 5C(8gb) as well.

    My usage isn't that intense- texting, music, time to time youtube, light games, and occasional calls. but my hands aren't that stable, and i drop my phone alot.

    currently i'm on android, and a little doubtful about going for an iphone. My questions are-

    1. Should i buy 6 rightaway? or wait for the next model to come ? is it going to be 6S or 7? Also, at that point, will the 6 become obsolete instantly?

    2. Should i really buy 6 rightaway? or go for 5S or 5C? (no, i don't crave for 4" screen, i just think 5S looks prettier)

    3. What problems i might face while switching from my 'Google' phone to 'Apple' phone? I am a heavy user of Google Drive.

    4. JUST IN CASE if i drop my phone, will the screen shatter immediately? is it that fragile? - i see a lot of shattered iphones, that's why a little concerned.

    Waiting for the answers.
    Sorry for the grammatical mistakes, if there are any.

    Thanks for your questions. I'll attempt to give my input on each one individually.

    1) It depends on how bad you want a new phone. If you can't wait, I would suggest you hold off until the next iPhone is released.

    2) If you don't need a bigger screen, the 5C would make a great phone.

    3) Most of Google's services have iPhone apps so that should not be an issue. However, going from one OS to another can be disruptive--until you get acclimated.

    4) Any phone that has a glass screen can shatter if dropped. That is why I would suggest AppleCare+.
