iPhone 4... I spent too much $$$ on my trailer to buy a new phone or an iPad!

iPhone 6. The iPhone...the original, and still the best. In my opinion.

I've got a Droid Turbo (VZw) and the DW has a Galaxy S3. She is due for an upgrade and we were originally hoping for the release of the S5 mini on VZw, but it just never happened (she wants a smaller phone.). She has now caved and with the announcement last week of the Galaxy S6 edge we are holding out for her replacement. Rumor has it pre-sales will start April 1 with sales happening around the 16th. It is one sharp phone IMHO.

As for why, you really need to be the judge of what you are going to use it for. If pictures are your key, focus on the camera and storage (although cloud storage helps a lot - we use OneDrive), battery life - well you need to look at the specs for both talk time and standby, browsing and visibility - screen size and resolution, etc , etc.

That's why I went with the Turbo (the specs are across the board!)

Android vs. iOS is a completely personal preference.

Although it seems everybody and his dog has a smart phone, hubby and I only have quaint flip phones, and only recently got texting due to the fact that our son is now on our plan and has an Iphone 6+ with all the bells and whistles, so we 'share'. We still don't have internet on ours, our phone doesn't support it. No great loss, hubby can hardly manage dialing.

Congrats on your new iPhone! I've always wanted one but just haven't made it happen yet.

On another note-
I still like my ZMAX smartphone especially for my budget but I just found out that the battery cannot be replaced.

if you aren't tech savvy, i strongly suggest using the Iphone over any Android phone. The iPhone is designed for user experience and is considered easier to use. Android can be endlessly customized, but things may not always work the same.

Fun fact: I develop mobile apps for phones for one of the major telecom companies
