    Congrats on your new iPhone 8! My son is a fan of the smaller form factor 6/7/8 and currently has iPhone 7. He had the chance to get an iPhone XR last year but instead chose to upgrade to the iPhone 7 for the JB color and price. We're playing close attention to the rumored SE2 for the form factor. Enjoy your new phone!!
    Thanks and yeah my seven was the best phone I ever had but I did notice a slight slowdown on the massively bloated Facebook app, but then sometimes it would be fast again so I’m thinking it could just be some glitches with iOS 13. I got only a year and a half out of my iPhone 5c before it started grinding to a halt and nothing would load, but then that was only a 32 bit processor. I expect we should be fine for quite a while with a seven or an eight, I hope.

    There are probably still app updates . Last year I bought a cheap android galaxy tab a 7 inch just to learn android and that thing is running ancient lollipop 5.1 and it still gets a ton of app updates, which is great, but it’s nowhere nearly as fast as any Apple product I ever had, even my iPad one.

    Just today she asked me what my battery life is like and when I told her she goes “I might need to change my battery” and I followed it up by saying “or get a new phone” lol

    Haha yeah definitely not worth changing a battery on an older phone because the processor will just get slower and slower. I had a new battery put on my iPhone 5c after a year and a half because it was toast but that’s about the time the processor wouldn’t load pages quickly anymore so it’s just not worth it. It was only 50 bucks to change the battery at a little independent electronics place but still.

    I got an email in my trash that I cannot delete. There’s about a 40 second video file I sent to a friend and I guess it was too big, anyway I removed the email account reinstalled the email account and the problem continues. Any other tricks for this?

    EDIT: NVM, figured it out.

    It has the best features of any of the pre-Xstyle iPhones. Best camera for sure. My wife likes hers. I got her this OtterBox Commuter, along with the OtterBox Alpha Glass screen protector.

    Yep I had an OtterBox Commuter but in aqua mint for about a year and a half for my 7, then I got bored with it and gave it to a friend earlier this year who I helped get his first iPhone (from a flip phone) 8, so later today we’re going to trade Back because I have a couple of other cases he wants haha. I’ve got to get that Commuter back, would prefer not to drop 50 bucks on a new one.

    With all these thin cases, see-through cases I’ve tried, they’re great but they just don’t have enough screen lip protection and I’ve never felt worried with the OtterBox commuter. It’s just the right thickness without being bulky. That was a big part of wanting an eight because it can use all of the seven cases.

    At time of release, it was rumored the iPhone 8 would have the capabilities to save mankind. This was later pushed back for inclusion on iPhone 12 due to some technical issues. Otherwise, my wife and daughter say it’s a great phone.

    So they said IF I DID want to trade the 3 day old 8 in towards an 11 Pro they could do $469. But there is no way I am taking a $150 loss so I am definitely keeping the 8. I was just curious what they would offer.

    Well the one I want, the cheapest is $40 Canadian on Amazon.ca Surprisingly the black ones are $49 and that’s the same price as Best Buy here. But I was also at Walmart today and they’re down to $31 for the black one.

    I remember just a year ago the black ones were down to $20 on special at Amazon.ca. No idea what would make the price go up to retail prices especially since it’s an older device now

    Bought my first wireless charging pad today, Black Friday special. Been also watching a lot of YouTube videos about how the electromagnetic coil’s create a lot of heat and I noticed there was more heat and how it might possibly have a detrimental effect on the life of the battery.

    Can someone please tell me a good battery alarm app where you can send it to a certain percentage and the phone will tell you the battery is at that level? I bought a Belkin wireless charger and I just don’t want to thing running all night long. An app that has a good alarm and possibly a temperature also but just the alarm would be great. Almost every one that I see in the App Store either has not been updated in at least a year or doesn’t get that great of reviews . Anyone?

    That or is there phone setting internally? Don’t laugh but I’m still using my XR no differently than I used flip phones 20 years ago.

    Nope there is no setting for that but I wish there was. I went and bought this app for $2 and it doesn’t work. It was one of the top 5 battery alarm apps when I Googled it. I am convinced none of them work, I’ve tried a few in the past and that was the same thing.

    So I messaged the creator of the app and he took the issue seriously and was good to see a response from him
