Can you imagine how I would have felt waking up to an almost malfunctioning hand-phone? Scary oh-boy! My heart started beating fast and I was literally in tears because without a hand-phone, I think life will fall apart. Even though I am not at all a hard-core social media addict, a phone is essentially a must to check my mails and to receive and make calls as well. We do have a house phone, but supposedly a hand-phone is definitely a matter of convenience anywhere in the house and also primarily for emergency purposes when I am out.
Hence, waking up to a 6 year old “iphone 5s” that presumably is dying a slow death shattered my day. I knew something is wrong with its touchscreen. Obviously going soon, I then had to decide between getting it repaired or perhaps upgrade my social status with iphone7. My other half on the hand who have been insisting I should have changed my phone two years ago repeated the same thing over and over again. Hearing him out one final time, eventually, after carefully considering my savings, I thought I might as well get a new phone at Blue Cube Sunway. Checking out its price and monthly package offered by my service provider I have been faithfully loyal for 22 years, I was hoping for trading in. When told it’s impossible (remember, my phone is out of order?), I was still adamant about getting it repaired first. So, off to Machines Sunway and then to Machines Mid-Valley where repair is done besides at KLCC, one week to repair at RM400.00 or two weeks for the same new (yes new) phone at RM500.00 didn’t lure me.
I then returned back to Bluecube and bought iphone 7(256GB) instead of opting for iphone 7plus which was not in stock. Furthermore, a spilling-over waiting list, anyway, for me, big is not necessary better yea. A small phone is preferred instead of a bigger one which can possibly fall off or can attract the “Kabalis/Indian Street Notorious Guys”. Long gone also carrying handbag for the same fear of being robbed, I paid RM2690.30 (GST 152.28), I opted for the RM150.00 monthly package and another RM300.00 for a cover and protective shield at one of the shops in Sunway Pyramid.
Returning home at about 5.30pm feeling really exhausted after the long walk and drive, of course, iphone 7 brought a broad smile on my face. Having been toying around with it for the past 2 weeks, let me now tell you if it was worth the purchase.
Compared to 5s at 64GB, I am loaded with a bigger storage in iphone7 (256GB)
As a blogger, I take pictures crazily. So obviously I am really happy.
Vast improvement, pictures are truly stunning with iphone7 (12 megapixels, Quad LED & High Dynamic Range mode (HDR) & Two cameras that shoot as one).
In fact, my Canon EOS 100D is literally crying out, begging me to use it.
As said earlier, big is not necessary beautiful for a small size lady like me.
I would have still been happy with iphone 5s (123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 mm (4.87 x 2.31 x 0.30 in) compared to Iphone 7 (138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm (5.44 x 2.64 x 0.28 in). But of course, naturally, a bigger phone must logically be slightly heavier, yet both fared at an average of 5.3 oz (150g). I guess its a plus point.
Please don’t ask, I know nuts about the whole theory of OS. Apparently iphone 7 must be better right?

Honestly, I bought iphone 7 mainly because I know that a 6 year old phone eventually will head to the museum. If it was still its normal self, I would have definitely kept my money for travelling. But once I read about Iphone 7's updated features prior to pitching this post, no regrets albeit I am still discovering it day by day till this day. While hoping this phone will take me through for the longest time, iphone 7 is yet proven as splash and water resistant since nothing of that sort I have messed up. Whereas I should be able to nail it in another two weeks if this phone is sensational for worldwide roaming during another of my globe trotting. Nevertheless, I sincerely don’t want to drop iphone 7 to discover what sort of consequences is waiting for me.
By the way, my old phone has been repaired and I have downloaded my plentiful pictures. Only if I didn’t generously over charge it, the battery wouldn’t have expanded to push up the touchscreen. Silly me yea! Then again, with a iphone 7, people actually think I am rich and successful. Speak about iphone and perception, shall we?More on lifestyle at Navakris.
