About a year and a half ago, I decided to finally buy my first smartphone after avoiding it for years. My old phone still had a keyboard so I had no problems texting and it lasted about at least a week per charge (could last 10 days). I bought the iPhone 7 plus which had just released and have regretted it ever since. First of all I don’t dislike apple. I owned a 12" macbook and 10.5" ipad pro, and only sold them for 12.9" ipad pro and to curb the cost of an imac pro. I also own acessories like the apple pencil and three pairs of airpods (one broke). Now back to the reason I despise the smartphone. I am still paying $100/month between data and the phone’s remaining balance for nothing in return. I literally get no use out of it because it’s an inferior ipad in every way. Even if I had no iPad, the idea of watching video or web surfing on such a tiny screen is comical to me. It runs out of battery every couple days even still at 94% original capacity and background refresh off. There are apps I want to delete, but can’t and I have no use for them. I will never see worth in this device or any iPhone because they sit in a wierd spot without any use. All hype and zero productivity. I just want a phone for calls/text. The only benefit is I now have a decent GPS at all times, but I rarely need a GPS and even then I already had a GPS standalone that I would pull out for such occassions. So I wasted my money and this phone also wastes my time with its poor battery and more complex os.
