    My I phone 7 is about done at this stage, usual battery and charge port, anyone have any of the newer ones, on Vodafone sim only so might buy a phone outright again rather that sign a long contract.

    Have you tried cleaning out the charging port with a pin? You’d be amazed at the crap that gets in there and when you clean it out phone should work as good as new. If it’s only a charging problem that is

    Ya it’s gone beyond that, cleaned it with a pic and gave it a bit of a blow out, I think I have it nearly 3 years now and find that’s all they’re good for. anyway.

    Ya you can get a charging port and battery prob €150 but they’d give me €250/300 I think in a phone shop for my phone, I’d be a long ways towards a new phone if you added both.

    I’ve threatened to switch to Android but I can’t bring myself yet, I bought a Samsung tablet a few years ago and couldn’t get to grips with it :unsure:

    I thought the same but the ui have become fairly similar in recent years, I had the hang of it in a few hours.

    Have an xs 64gb for last 6 months. It replaced a 6. Huge jump up in speed and image clarity. Find the bigger screen great. Not to mention extra storage.

    Finding it good for holding charge, about 2 days. Always run it down fully.
