With the preapproval process this was just a few seconds long. Done.

Ok… so why am I getting one? Good question I suppose.

In many ways, this is continuing the trend. I’ve been getting the new iPhones on release day since the iPhone 3. I’ve given a couple away as gifts to friends with broken phones so I don’t have all of them… but I’ve had a good run.

So, again… why am I getting one?

I guess the biggest reason is the camera I suppose. This is the first small iPhone to feature dual cameras. Beyond that, I was playing with a co-worker’s Pixel from Google and if the screen is half as good as that I’m sold.

Realistically, do I need to? No. But I want to. And that, in my mind, is a good enough reason.
