    apart from the gravitational issues, how do you like it?

    i’ve got an iphone se or se2 (not sure which) for work.  it takes decent enough photos, but if you move the phone at all while taking a photo it takes video instead.  i find my droid easier to use, but i can’t use it for work issues.

      Hummmm.  That is not what it looked like when I posted it.  Damn!  Lol.  I have an iPhone 7 Plus.  The battery has been giving me trouble lately and needs to be charged each night.  Just a few weeks ago it would last me 2 and 3 days.  I do not talk much, only text.

      I was not sure how to do this.  THANK YOU!!  His name is Archie and when he is not pondering the pool he is chewing anything and everything!  He is my sons dog and I am dogsitting.  I have learned to keep him in front of me at all times so I can see what he is doing.  The other dog is a Wheaten Terrier and is not as bad as this boy.  They are loveable but distructive.  They are just puppies though.

    Did you have a software update?
    Maybe this helps. (I do not know much about apples and iPhones since I have windows and droid.

      Eric thank you and yes I have tried most of the recommendations posted there.  It seems to be a problem driving my daughter-in-laws Honda.  I plug in my phone for music and it shows charging but it is not really.  That is what is draining my battery.  When driving my sons Merc it is blue tooth and not plugged in so I expect the battery to run down while playing music.  Thank you again Eric.

        some cars have usb ports for media only (though it says charging it really isn’t) and some for charging and some for media and charging.

          My Jeep is 20 years old.  I have it rigged so I can play my iPhone through my tape player and it also charges at the same time.  I put this in so I know what is going on.  I think you are correct about not charging although it says it is.  I never listen to am-fm radio ever!  I never watch brodcast tv either.  I am sick of commercials.  I do have SiruisXM also.  No commercials!!!

    Welcome to the world of iPhone photography, John 🙂 My old iPhone (5s) is dead since I accidentally dropped it down the toilet but if I ever get a new one, I should practice iPhone photography too, just to stay in vogue at least a little bit!

      Yes Jasenka that is definitely a phone killer!!  I have insurance for my phone in case I do something like that.  The thing is I always have my camera with me so iPhone photography never enters my mind.
