    Hi

    Just to cut things short have been and die hard Android user since it's inception probably 10 years nearly.

    Have been curious to try out Apple and Ios for a couple of years now.

    Finally pulled the trigger and plucked the courage to order and IPhone 7 plus Red in 128gb. This was direct from Apple on monthly financing.

    Not sure I did the right thing or should have waited for the IPhone 8 or whatever they will call it.

    To be honest I am sick and tired with Android for 2 reasons namely battery life and timely updates.

    I am currently using an S7 edge which was good at first but the honeymoon was soon over after a month or so when battery life started deteriorating and now I can barely get 8 to 10 hours on it. Secondly the updates have come to a stand till after promising start.

    I am super excited to finally come over but also nervous and not knowing what to expect.

    Any kind thoughts and help would be greatly appreciated.

    Have also ordered a silicone midnight blue case with the phone.

    Can't wait till Monday unboxing.

    😁

    I take my 7 Plus off charger at about 930 at night and plug it back in at about 8pm and still have 40% left, and had the same luck with my 6S Plus and 6 Plus. I don't lose any % overnight either, where with any Samsung or LG I had I'd lose 10-20% overnight. I think you'll be pleased with the battery in comparison.

    Congratulations on your new purchase @shoaib shah! The Product Red is definitely my favourite right now. Ah i so want one Should you have waited for the iPhone 8? I would say no. Buy the device now and ENOY it! don't worry about whats coming out. Because when the iPhone 7s launches, people will be like, should i wait for the iPhone 8. The unboxing experience is really good. Always my most exciting part.

    I love the look of that phone, but I don't want to drop another $500 to change color.

    $500? Yikes. I paid $739 plus tax. Was 799. My old plus are selling I'm swaps for around 725 or so. I'd see like $100 difference there for me.

    Yeah your situation it is tough. Mine was paid in full and then I get the Apple Friends and family discount. So maybe $100 difference.

    How does one get the friends and family discount? Relative work at an Apple Store?

    Have a relative or friend that works there. Everything I've bought over the past few years unless it was an iPhone at launch I get 15% off. My macs, iPads, phones, watches and etc. They place the order for you and they put your name on it and you can either pick up in store or have it shipped.
