A "smart"phone for you would be one where you've got the numbers for Domino's, the local fish and chip shop and the TAB programmed into your speed dial, wouldn't it??
If i were you Piggles, i'd leave the IQ jibes on the sidelines. It's abit like me giving Terry Hill **** about his lisp, a lot of hide in that.

It's got nothing to do with your IQ mate, it's the fact that as a bogan you make me look like the Prince of freaking Wales.

Obviously I'd smoke you in the IQ stakes, I would never stoop so low as to bag you about your intelligence.

The fact you thought I was having a go at your IQ at all says it all really.

That's not true. I often get a bit narky when I'm not served at the bar and it's clearly my turn. In fact, I've been known to stack on a blue about it.

Ok, dropped my iphone 5 on the tar. Star cracked the screen, works fine otherwise.
Do I need new digitiser etc or just the outer screen?

Should just be the outer screen then mate, any of those places in the shopping malls are fine. $100 would be cheap.

Usually just the outer screen. Check ifixit for a disassembly guide. 5 and 5s are easy u think it's just a few screws and slide a new one on but 4s well forget about it you have to pull apart the whole phone it's easier just to pay someone. Sure I could have done it but I'd rather my time in this case.

My 4S was heaps better than the 5S

I can watch the battery drop from 70% to 35% within a few minutes of operating a couple of apps. Im charging it twice a day at work

No matter what phone I get from now on I think I'll track down a battery case for it, having one for my iPhone has been great.

Had Samsungs the last couple of phones. They are great. Make sure you turn off the background data and apps when not using them and your battery will last longer.
