    I have the Experia Z3 Compact, nice phone... The thing with Apple is all about image at a price. As I have mentioned before, all that cost and they can't make a screen that can't crack.
    I put a panzer glass screen on my z3 and now my z5, makes them virtually bulletproof.

      My iphone 5c battery used to die at about 32% - REALLY annoying..

      Changed the battery myself with ifixit kit, and boom, just like a new phone and can use it all the way down to 1%

      Not sure it really matters nowadays - all phones have cameras that can take good snaps, apps are generally available on all platforms (although a fair few do still start on iOS before being ported over if they take off) and if you're a heavy user you'll be carrying a battery pack around with you.

      I've got an iPhone 7 Plus mainly because everything we have is Apple and they are finally doing a pretty decent job of making sure "it just works" across all devices. It can be useful to type something in Notes on my MacBook Air and then open notes on my iPhone and the text is there immediately. iCloud, Handoff and Continuity work pretty seamlessly now and it's quite impressive.

      I still see people write things like "I've got a new phone, please send me your numbers" and I don't understand why. My iPhone backs everything important up automatically every day so when I change phones I just restore the backup and I've got all I need.

      Someone above wrote about wanting a memory card slot still. Really? I've not checked the storage on my iPhone since I got it 5 or 6 months ago. I just have for the first time, prompted by this thread, and I have 35gb free. Do people really run out of space nowadays?

      The iPhones 7 are waterproof, at last, which means I'm less likely to destroy it with rain and sweat whilst out running. The dual lens camera is decent, and you can take some genuinely decent photos with great depth of field with the Portrait mode that the dual lenses makes possible. Other phones may take better photos - I have no idea - but as per muy opening sentence - all phones takes decent photos now. Any "better' must be very marginal.

      Oh - Apple service is also spectacularly good. Some will say "and so it should be given what the phones cost", but maybe it is just getting what you pay for.

      I dropped my phone onto a concrete floor from a height in New York late one evening. I picked the phone up, saw the screen was cracked so opened the Apple Store app and made an appointment at the Apple Store in Grand Central Station for 7am the next morning. I dropped my (UK bought) phone off, had a great New York breakfast and by 8am my phone was fixed and back in my hand.

      I'm not entirely sure how it works on the other side of the fence, other than noticing that whenever anyone I know has an issue with their phone, it goes back to some shop who then send it away and they are either without a phone for a few weeks or have to use some old one they kept hold of.

      If you can wait, go for the next iPhone on a 0% purchase.

      So what do you think then, should he get an Android?

      Not really sure which type of phone you prefer. Could you spell it out for us?

      There's no reason not to get Android. You're almost certainly save money for a start, although I'll add...

      1) The "iPhones are more expensive" thing is largely a myth. New flagship phones from Samsung et al come in at the same price when launched.
      2) iPhones hold their value considerably better than other phones from what I can see, which helps when the next upgrade time comes around.
