    I was out running some errands yesterday.
    Since March, I haven't gone anywhere other than a grocery store and a Walmart once a week.

    Yesterday, I noticed two thrift stores close to me were now open, so i decided to check one out.

    The iPhone 4S was in excellent condition, there wasn't a scratch on the back/front.
    Last year I found a 3rd gen iPod Nano at another thrift store, so I knew the USB cable would work.

    I gave it a quick cleaning and a good charging and so far, i am very, very happy with the results.
    These are some of the games that I have tested and have played so far.

    I would not use it for personal/private usage (ie banking, etc)
    But will make a great iPod touch alternative (RIP iPod Touch 5th Gen)

    I also missed the built-in cover flow feature.
    I have NO plans to update the device to iOS 9.3.6, which is currently available to me.
    I found mostly negative feedback to iOS 9.3.6 on iPhone 4S.

    But it was so damn good to play some of these great games from the last 10 years.

    PS: I did NOT restore using iTunes, I only "Erased all content and settings" via Settings.
    I Really did not want to lose iOS 6.0.1.
