A little history. I owned pretty much every iPhone from the 3G to the 5 however when I saw the Galaxy S4 with its big (at the time) and beautiful screen I jumped ship. I enjoyed the S4 a lot and the following year switched to an HTC One M8 which was great, besides the camera. 2015 rolls around and my phone of choice this year was the LG G4. Hardware is great, removable battery, expandable storage, great screen, phenomenal camera. Last Monday I was casually using my phone and it decided to turn off and not turn back on past the "LG Life's Good" screen. AT&T sent me a replacement but I was without a phone for 2 days which is hard especially having school and work to deal with. Received the replacement phone filled with all the AT&T junk apps, it "synced" messages for 4 days for some reason I can't figure out. And I'm still on Android 5.1.1 MONTHS after 6.0 is released. Which I find unacceptable. Anyway I thought to myself, hmm maybe I'll swing by Apple and check out the 6S, maybe it's time to go back to my roots and see what's new/changed since the iPhone 5. What I learned was, there's no such thing as $200 upgrades anymore with AT&T and this device is stupid expensive. My options are: A) Apple's new program which would be $37 monthly plus $95 upfront for tax and first month payment. Plus a hard credit check that I'd rather avoid as I'm working on improving my credit score. B) AT&Ts Next plan, same boat, except it's a soft credit check and not a hard credit check. Plus with these options I can't upgrade until at-least 12 months. C) Buy the phone full price. I'd have to get the 64gb model + NYC tax would come out to about $815. I can sell the G4 on eBay and maybe walk away with $250 bringing the cost of the phone down to $565. Although I'm not sure if I want to sell the G4 right away, suppose I dislike the iPhone? Not sure if it's worth jumping ship, especially for these prices. Can't get a phone for $200 anymore unfortunately. Switching carriers isn't really an option as I'm on a family plan. Options, advice..?
