I just upgraded to the latest version of Android ( Marshmallow ) and I've gotta say, it isn't bad at all. I told The Girls to wait until the next iPhone comes out at the end of the year to upgrade.

What really bites, is now you have to pay full retail for the phone now ( or pay it off over your 2 year contract on a monthly basis ). Kinda sucks, since before all you had to do was hand over $250, $300 up front and that was it.

That is the downside of cellular networks in the US and A. But the good news is that people will grow tired of that and they will have to offer discounts on the phones, or drop the prices of phones.

There is no reason why a phone should be hovering sub +/- $1,000. You could buy a fully functional laptop for that amount. We are in what I would call a period of slackwater. A transition is coming!
