I might pick it up, if only because my 5S is a joke at the moment. All the glass is cracked, I have about 8 big black blotches on the screen, it mutes/speaker/hangs up at random, and the bottom half of the touchpad only works about 70 percent of the time. And recently it's developed this VHS like fuzz over everything.

Might be time for an upgrade.

Apple died with Steve Jobs and is now a fashion company. Jobs would've never let a bunch of the things that have come out out, this was a guy who would call designers at 2 am because a color was off on a logo as he was using it at night.

When was the last time iOS really did something new? it's been years, apple had also been playing catch up. I'm not saying Android is doing much better either or other companies like Samsung. Phones reached a maturity point where there is little useful innovation anymore and most do most of the things we all need very well, anything else is vanity.

Apple will continue to be successful but they're not innovative anymore.

Yeah...that should probably be the best course of action. But I wouldn't bother with this one, just go for what's decent at the moment and not overly extravagant like this thing.

It would probably be a good idea to have a phone that functions, especially with your career in television and potentially being on important phone calls.

Over-expensive and unnecessary.
