I'm in the same boat. I can't believe the price of iPhones, but are they worth the premium?
I use my current Blackberry for phone, text, Whatsapp, BBM, a bit of browsing and I use about 3 Apps currently (mobile banking, my phone company App for checking usage, and one for the Abu Dhabi police which tells you if you have been camera flashed for speeding). I only use these 3 as there aren't that many Apps for Blackberry.
I want to move to Android as there are more Apps (the above 3 + I'd like to have a couple more which I like but don't come on Blackberry) but also I see more Apps for Apple than for Android.
Work emails also can be used on iPhone, but not Android due to Security issues.....
So far I am balancing:
Keep the Blackberry, but upgrade to the one with bigger screen and live without some of the Apps I want. This is cheap and works for work emails best.
Go to Samsung or another Android phone. Cheaper than iPhone but worried about stability and usability and also no work email (which may be a God send TBH)
Go to an iPhone 6 (can you still get 5s new?) which I reckon is stable, usable, works for work email and can give me the Apps I want - BUT costs a small fortune and makes me look like a teenage girl.....
