    Well well, full circle....

    Several years ago I was all in with Apple products, iPhone4s, iPad, iPod, iPod nano, Macbook Pro.....I launched a business and realised the high walls and incompatibility to play nice with other eco systems that 95% of the world uses was a deal breaker..ditched Apple, hated MS and went with Android/Google....few years later the Google Machines dirty tricks and underhanded data theft emerged and adis muchachos...went all in with MS...So far as business goes it will remain MS for now and for the future. So far as Mobile goes, im tired of being a MS guinea pig, W10M is very far from Windows 8 when thier was hope.

    Well I need a new mobile and iPhone 7 will be the one, I still hate Apple and its high walled protectionism, however its (today) the best of a bad bunch IMO.

    Well, if you hate , MS and Android, why do not you go with BB?
    Plus, you have a business. Those phones are conceived for them

    Best of the bunch IMHO is the BB Passport or Z30 if you prefer without keyboard.



    BUT you can't go wrong getting an iPhone. Have an iPhone 6 Plus myself and will likely get a 7 Plus. (Yes I also have a BlackBerry Priv)

    I did the Apple-Android-Blackberry cha-cha, too... And I'm back with Apple, too, lol. I am now on 100% Apple ecosystem and it's working really well, but only since IOS 8. Prior to that, there were a lot of issues.

    Officially there is no information on the iPhone 7. Everything you asked about is rumored. So do NOT make assumptions or decisions now.

    What specifically were you not able to do with Apple products that made it a deal-breaker for you? FWIW I know many businesses that are run solely on Apple products or mixed environments.

    I used GTD (Getting things done) methodology, back then I tried every GTD app and system and used 2 connectors to make it work with PC, one went down and I lost syncing. The business world is 90% Microsoft, Apple has no intention to target that sector, they are consumer focussed. In my company I look at hundreds of CV's in word format every day, I also had issues back then with the Mac Office suite designed by a bunch of amateurs which completely screwed the formatting up, no idea what its like now though, I wouldn't change anything in the business side.

    Woah! It is the other way aroud, for me.
    At work, we have Windows computers. I know why they are called like that.. It's because you want to throw them out of windows.

    Business wise, I have my MacBook Air for inventory and email/social media while I am in my office and my iPad Mini 4 to do transactions and email/social media while away. They work flawlessly!

    To each their own, I guess
