The Sue Review: Why I love my iPhone

The IPhone Models

The IPhone Models

Recently a close friend of mine asked whether she should buy an iPhone 6 or the new Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. After thinking about it for a bit, I advised her to buy the Samsung, which is strange because I love my iPhone! Here’s the thing, Samsung (or should I say Android?) phones are far more flexible and adjustable. iPhones look gorgeous but tend to allow very specific uses. In my case, I have a Macbook Air and an iPad. So keeping it in the Apple family is best for me.

Before the iPhone6 and 6+ the debate tended to be one about the size of screen you might need. But with the 4.7 inch screen on the iPhone6+ this isn’t part of the debate anymore (** Uhm, The bigger the better right ladies? Giggle**). My current iPhone is the second one that I have and these are the killer features they have added to the iPhone 6, which is just an upgrade after my iPhone 5S:

The Camera’s

What is a killer outfit without a cute “selfie? When it comes to photography, the front and back cameras are amazing. I’ve even filmed a few of my YouTube videos with my iPhone (You are welcome to subscribe to my channel). The innovative technology to make a great camera even better. That’s why we added features to the 8MP iSight camera like a new sensor with Focus Pixels, improved face detection, and exposure control. So you can take the photo and let iPhone 6 do the rest. Well essentially this camera is awesome!

The Speed

The A8 chip can sustain higher performance — so you can play graphics-intensive games or enjoy video at higher frame rates for longer than ever.

I love speed, not just in a “Fast and Furious kind of way” but knowing that my phone is working and it’s powerful and fast. Before switching to iPhone I had a Samsung and it felt like the longer I had that phone the slower it got. To paraphrase a popular youtube meme celeb ‘Sweet Brown’, Aint nobody got time for that! Jumping between my social media accounts, email and editing apps are a breeze with my iPhone and you know what they say ‘Time is money’ So having a phone that does not lag is a plus for me, In the iPhone 6 The all-new A8 chip is the fastest yet. So you can play graphics-intensive games or enjoy video at higher frame rates for longer than ever.

The Fingerprint reader

Touch ID is amazing!

It might seem like an odd feature to love but when you’re out and about at the mall carrying a few shopping bags, the convenience of being to unlock your phone in a secure way with one hand is priceless. Your fingerprint is the perfect password. I know that the recent Android phones now also have this feature, but in my experience the way apple have done is just it’s  Touch ID technology uses a unique fingerprint identity sensor to make unlocking your phone easy and secure and it grants faster access to my phone.

I love the Quality of my IPhone camera

This being my second iPhone, I wasn’t sure what to do with my old iPhone when I upgraded. I love my 3 year old daughter but she’s way too young to be gifted an old iPhone to play with. Now that I’m looking ahead to upgrade to the iPhone6 I found a handy tool that gives a good sense of how much you can sell you used iPhone for http://www.gumtree.co.za/pages/pricechecker/iphone/ . And if I’ve convinced you to buy an iPhone and you are not in a position to get one brand new check out  http://www.gumtree.co.za/s-iphone/v1c9420p1

Ps. I really love my iPhone. Good sigh

Proud to be a real women. Love my curves. Love this dress.

I am so impressed that I found all my clothes on Gumtree, Since the launch in 2005, they have helped millions of people buy and sell millions of things. It’s place everyone trusts, a familiar space that’s easy to navigate, and a classified site that just works – whether via your mobile phone or desktop.

This outfit made me feel confident and beautiful. It made me think of a quote I once heard. It said that the fashionable woman wears clothes, the clothes don’t wear her. I totally agree with this sentiment only because how many times have you seen people wear something so overbearing you can hardly focus and appreciate the style because it’s complete mess of too many colours, even their smiles get lost in the outfit. That a No-no for me.

Most woman just need to be confident, smile and be proud of who they are when they wear their clothes. Life is too short to be worrying about what to wear every single day of your life.

Natural an minimal Makeup worked well with the outfit.

Just in what they are.

After my 30th  Birthday I had one motto: Love your curves. Yes, I had a daughter, My body went through so much after gaining 20 kg’s. My poor back!! I think so many women give up so much when they decide to have kids. But you have to embrace your body. No one is perfect ladies.
