    Well I finally traded my iPhone 5c because it doesn't look like the 10.3 update will be available for it as it is 32 bit and I want to be secured when I do phone banking and stuff.

    Settled on the gold 7 32 GB which should be more than enough for me considering I had 52 apps on my 16 GB 5C with four gigs to spare.

    Went with the coral reef soft silicone official Apple case and what I like about it is it's not as grippy as the official Apple 5C case that was actually working against me every time I tried to get the phone out of my pocket, this one is actually pretty slick with moderate grip. Just perfect actually. I was considering going with one of those plastic clear cases but it just look like it would shatter if you ever dropped it LOL although I like how that shows off the gold.

    Rogers was pretty generous, because I traded my 5C I got $100 worth of accessories so everything you see in these photos cost absolutely nothing. I got a couple of extra dongle's or whatever you call them, the adaptor for lightning to 3.5 mm because I have a feeling I'm going to lose them eventually.

    How many of you actually use Live Photos? And if you do on 1080 P do you set it to 30 frames a second or 60? Does it matter?

    Man what a beautiful phone. I might have some questions for you guys eventually...

    Awesome, how long can you go on a single charge of the battery?

    Wow lols.

    Well I'm still on my first charge, it came shipped with about 75% battery life but I thought i would fully charge it and then take it right down to about 5% before I fully charged again and right now I'm sitting at 25% that's after hours of checking all the settings and everything else and installing iOS 10.3 finally.

    Much easier to type on a slightly wider keyboard than the 4 inchers

    My first real question is how come I turned the Live Photos off under the camera and video settings but it keeps reverting back to on when you're on the screen in the camera mode do you have to keep putting it off all the time it's crazy

    Go to Settings, then Photo and Camera, then Preserve Settings, toggle the preserve settings for Live Photos on. Then when you open the camera itself and turn Live Photos off, it will stay off until you turn it back on.

    Ha ha thanks everyone. I consider BlackBerry and apple my mainstays, I've been with those two companies for seven years now.

    The battery only lost 4% overnight while in do not disturb mode, that's pretty good I think.

    Ps: I ordered that really cheap clear see-through peel-off case so that it would hopefully still fit in my BlackBerry Z 30 leather hip holster that I used to carry the old iPhone in the winter time. The iPhone 7 still fits beautifully in that holster but not with the apple silicone case. So the goal will be to find a cheapie case where I have some protection when I pull the phone out of that hip holster. Too nervous going nakey with the 7.

    Enjoy it. I've had my 7 Plus since October and I actually enjoy it as much, if not more than when I first got it. It's just a great device all around.

    Awesome! I did check out an unlocked used but Apple certified 6S plus add an electronic store I think they wanted $400 which isn't a bad deal but there's just no way I think I could put it in my front pocket and comfortably tie a shoelace haha.

    4.7 seems to be a good size for me and I heard that they might offer a 5 inch iPhone this fall I don't even think I want to go that big other than It might make the keyboard a little nicer to type on because it would just be that much wider.

    This is one of the main reasons i love bigger devices. You have more screen real-estate to type on and the keyboard keys are more spaced out.

    Went with the coral reef soft silicone official Apple case
    The White and Blue colours go really nicely together

    Hope you enjoy your new iPhone 7!
