This time last month, the HEXUS Question of the Week asked "why don't you own an iPhone?"

Hundreds of you came forward to offer up an opinion on why the iPhone isn't for you, and the responses make for genuinely interesting reading. However, there are two sides to every argument, and in the past couple of weeks we've had numerous requests from readers wanting us to ask "why do you own an iPhone?"

So here it is, for all of you who currently use an iPhone (any generation counts), let us know why you chose it using the comments facility below.

Have a tech-related question you'd like to see featured as the QOTW? Fire it over using our contact form and it may well appear on the HEXUS website! We're always open to ideas, and while we can't promise that all questions will be published, we'd love to hear your suggestions.

Because I genuinely find the software to be the most consistent in terms of appearance, performance and reliability. It never bothers me with the meaningless errors and strange quirks like my Galaxy S3 did.

I'm a programmer, so I spend my day customizing/tweaking systems. Frankly, I want my phone to be a *break* from that kind of stuff. Sometimes, less is more.
I own an iPhone as it integrates well with my other devices (I have a mac, an iPad and Apple TV). I know I may be sneered at slightly for buying into the Apple ecosystem, but I find it worth paying for everything to ‘play nicely’. I had android handsets before this, and they caused no end of problems. Personally, linux based OS's will only be in my server and VMs
I still use a 4S. I want a small phone and it's the most powerful small phone out. The camera is still very good and it simply does everything I want without much fuss.

I also have an Sony Android tablet which I love, a PC with Windows 7 and a MacBook Pro. I tried a Sony Xperia Z3 Compact phone which was great and had LTE, but it took some tweaking to do everything I wanted but I still preferred my 4S so I returned it.
LOL. Only 3 replies. Sums it up very well I must say
I don't own one, but my wife does. Her reason? The camera. For a smartphone, it's one of the best camera and goes well for my wife as she's a photographer so the iPhone 6+ she have works well enough when she doesn't have a camera available.

Plus she've used iOS for a long time so she's just used to it. Why change?
