Iphone 6 or iPhone 5S: What do you suggest?
So I'll be waiting in line with my boyfriend and friends for the new iPhone. We did it in NY last year and we'll be doing it this year at Palo Alto(I am actually excited to check it out since I actually am starting University there this year)
Anyway, while I am picking up a Pre-order for my Step-brother, I have been considering getting my own iPhone. As an Avid Windows Phone Fan, I am in want of a new phone. Problem is No New Lumias are coming out and I don't support any other OEM besides Nokia/Microsoft. They earned my money.
1. I dislike how the uniqueness of Windows Phone is going the Android way(meh) with the OS...and I am growing more interested in IOS.
It lacks live tiles but the EXPERIENCE from playing with it feels so immersive and it makes me wish windows phone was a bit more cohesive(it's getting there but slowly)
2. I sort of need a new phone. My Mic on my phone sucks and I think it may have water damage. So Replacements are out of the question.
Presently I own a Lumia 1520 which is literally the best phone ever. Best Camera and whatever.
Right now, I am looking at the Iphone 6 and even the Iphone 5s and 5C(mainly because I like the colors lol I am used to Lumia)
What do you suggest?
I'll be using Att next 12 month plan so if i like APple, I can always be able to upgrade yearly and if not, then no loss there.
I don't think the iphone 5C is the best fit simply because it is based off a 2012 phone and I hear IOS runs not so great on older hardware.
I spend the weekend playing with my friends iphone 5s and it is tiny....compared to my Lumia 1520. Here's a pic for comparison sake.
6 inches vs 4 Inches(who knew 2 inches made such a difference)
Thing is....Wait for it....
It didn't seem bad using the iphone 5s.
It was small and tiny yes but it just...fit. Idk how to explain it. I am well Adjusted to my 1520(I have used it exclusively for a year) even though there are a few times when the size can be annoying lol.
The 5S was small and fit right into my hand perfectly. The Keyboard/Screen is small and it took a slight adjustment but then i was able to type relatively fast even on the smaller screen. Just as well as on my 1520.
The iPhone 6 is a good choice(I need a phone asap so the 6 plus is out of the question unless I am lucky and they have them in stock at stores :P) but it's like
Do I really Need the LATEST for someone who is experimenting with IOS?
I am dedicated to Windows Phone but at the same time, I'm getting bored with it and my phone and I want something new.
Android annoys/disgusts me...I contemplated a HTC One M8 but the camera is not that great and I dislike Samsung.
My needs are simple
1. Good Camera for low light(perhaps not Lumia quality but still great)
2. Good Selfie Cam
3. Fast and able to keep up with IOS 8(the 6 of course is made FOR Ios 8 but i hope 5S can handle it)
4. Just easy to use.
I even recently got over my issues with itunes :P I use it on my computer exclusively, ditching Xbox Music simply because i can do more with it and it's far less annoying.
Would a 5S be good or do you think I should get the iPhone 6?
While I usually always get the latest and greatest Lumia, part of me is saying I don't necessarily NEED the latest and greatest iPhone especially if I am dabbling with it.
Heck, that's why I even considered a 5C but the 5C forums are so dead so meh. I'd like to be able to actually TALk with people who have my phone lol
