Hello all, typical college student here.

My one plus 3T is giving up gradually and considering buying a refurb—iPhone 7 at around 10k. 

Is it a wise decision to get a 2016 launched device with typically exhausted battery life? 

Being a CS student, my only purpose is to explore its OS and compactness. My mobile is only used for calling and WhatsApp. Also, I can carry a power brick on most occasions.

Imo, not worth it. You can get much better mobile in Android at 10k and you can shift to higher end Apple device in future

battery life is really important. I have 11 and it sucks when I use camera for like 30 minutes. So now buying a fast charger which costs 3500 with cable lol

If you don’t mind its restrictiveness or unintuitive user experience, then yes, worth it. Just make sure the battery is holding up well, despite whether you have a power brick. But make sure that tiny screen (4.7 is tiny IMO in this day and age) is fine with you.

Dont buy.

Battery would be almost dead. Ios performance is linked to battery Health so it perform poorly.

All app support will soon stop as ios updates will stop for older phones.

Currently using an iPhone6 bought 3.5years ago for 14.5k.

Many UPI apps dont work on iphone6 because of old iOS version.

Battery health is 70%, i need to carry power brick almost everywhere, the battery just doesnt hold up.

Believe me dude, it’s really not worth it at 10k. There isn’t really much to explore from a CS perspective, there is such limited access that you can’t even view the file structure properly.

The phone is so old and refurbished so it would have a few problems. If not now, then within next 1 year of usage. From my experience, things like fingerprint sensor or mute button do give problems in iPhone 6,7

also jailbreak it ,2 important ones are truecaller id shown on lock screen with call ,for this you dont need to give permission to truecaller for your contacts or messages so safe,also use mod to make truecaller premium for life 

containers to make unlimited accounts for one app in one phone ,example licious with 9 phone numbers all on one phone on one app ,just change container to change account
