How much do I love thee?





Now  I am not definitely saying that I will but I am just saying maybe I could consent to taking Agata's now very old Apple iPhone 4.

This is quite a big ask for Marcus who is deliriously happy with his Android powered Nexus 4 phone.  The Nexus fulfills all my Smartphone needs and has the advantage of advertising you as an Apple free individual.

So carrying an Apple phone [again] would indeed be a big sacrifice to me.   The biggest annoyance would be the small iPhone screen, which with my eyes,  would be a squinting disaster.

But back to the talk of the town.  If Agata does trade up to the iPhone 5S she will be getting a smugphone with


  • A 4-inch diagonal display 1136x640, 325 ppi resolution
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • 8MP camera
  • Nano SIM
  • A7 , 64Bit CPU & faster processor
  • Lightening data connector
  • 112 grams
  • upto 64GB memory
  • 710 GBP for UK 64GB model

Practically speaking a decent incremental upgrade on the iPhone 5   (no longer available?) and I do approve of the extra security fingerprint sensor.

So, darling Agata,  whilst I would be happier if you upgraded yourself to a Sony Z1 instead of an iPhone 5S I would take a downgrade to your iPhone 4 should the need arise.

Taking your partners old gadgets: now that shows the love, in the 21st century First World.

And finally, for those who didn't quite get it.  iPhone 5 C.  C is for children.   With a scratchproof exterior, the middle class mater and pater will be flocking to supply young Tarquin and Samantha 5C's to keep in touch 24x7, all the while congratulating each other on the slightly lower cost.  Smart marketing indeed.
