Iphone Or Samsung: Help To Make Decision Pls by Tmlivesport(m): 8:23pm On Sep 10
Need to get a new phone as my present one Gionee M5+ is due for a change after using it for more than 4years thanks to slot computer village Lagos.

Thinking of going for

New iPhone 7plus 128gb

Or

New Samsung S9plus


Please which is more durable? and what do I need to watch out for?

This two phones you mentioned will never be brand new no matter how they're packaged, iPhone 7 plus is a 2016 phone while S9 plus is a 2018 phone.

If you must get one of them then manage the S9 plus

Stop misleading people oga.

The only iPhone that WhatsApp will stop working on is iPhone 4 as it doesn't support iOS 10. WhatsApp will continue working on any iPhone running iOS 10 and above.

Who is misleading people?
Iphone 6 comes preinstalled with IOS version 8.
Which means without running around to upgrade it, NO WHATSAPP FOR YOU.
Re: Iphone Or Samsung: Help To Make Decision Pls by KAM3KAZI: 12:49pm On Sep 11
This is advice from a person that want to buy an iPhone,get the Samsung,your only real problem with it would be the super expensive screen replacement if you break your screen

What do you mean by ‘running around to upgrade it’? Everyone knows that Apple offers the easiest and most seamless OTA(Over The Air) update in the smartphone industry. You can update your iOS from the comfort of your bed or while sitting in the toilet without any issues.

Seems you are the dishonest type.

You're making a good point but abeg oo do android devices run their OTA update differently from how iPhone does theirs ?

In a way yes. iOS OTA is so easy that you don’t need to be a geek to do it. Just have a reliable WiFi or 4G/LTE connection and you are good to go. You can even setup your iPhone to update automatically.

Go for s9+

Not all Android devices receive OTA updates sir. I wouldn’t want to start mentioning any particular brand, you may have to do a little research.
Re: Iphone Or Samsung: Help To Make Decision Pls by Tmlivesport(m): 9:57pm On Sep 11

The conditions for update too much, u must be ontop a tree, is it because it is OTA over the air... And i can't climb tall trees.

OP why are u going for old phones, almost 6 years old iphone and 4 years old Samsung?
You can use the same money to buy latest midrange phone from less expensive but quality brands. Don't be surprised that today's midrange might be much more powerful and capable than those ancient phones u want to buy.

That's solely from the oems who decide not to drop updates after launching a device.
