The main reason for the upgrade was the upcoming release of IOS 11, which has the Augmented Reality feature.
Other reasons include 4G, bigger memory and 4K video recording.
The packaging, as usual, was a dream, except I almost missed the SIM opening tool.
Spending most of yesterday setting up all of the apps I use and configuring WiFi at home and mobile connections, was able to do everything I wanted to do.
Note: make sure you take the front & rear plastic covers off before putting this in a phone cover 🙂
There is no doubt that Apple produce an expensive phone but the quality is really, really top notch and if my 4S is anything to go by, will last for years to come.
P.S. A quick shout out to Carphone Warehouse who were able to offer the best deal I could find on O2.
