Considering that I own an Apple Watch, an iPad Mini, an iPhone SE, MacBook Pro, and iMac, I guess it won’t surprise anyone who’s looking forward to the release of iPhone X or iPhone Edition. The truth, I’m a convinced user of Apple despite having been initiated in the technology with Windows and Blackberry because I simply like its fluidity, security, design and I think that although it may be more expensive (however we can find iPhone terminals cheaper than Android), its life is greater, come on, that within two years I know that my devices will still be the size and even I can get money for them if I decide to sell them.
I’m the first to know that around the iPhone 8 (or iPhone X iPhone Edition, probably Apple’s biggest secret to date) a brutal hype has been generated. And no wonder: Apple is going to wipe out a spectacular device.
Yes, you may not be the first to implement a borderless device, nor the first to use OLED or facial recognition, but let’s be honest: even the iPhone wasn’t the first smartphone, but in Cupertino they carry things that others have invented on another level .
So with the imminent arrival of the iPhone Edition I have decided to make a list of pros and cons to value your purchase.
Why am I buying an iPhone Edition?
In May, someone stole my iPhone 6s. So I decided to bet on the iPhone SE and I don’t regret a single day : an affordable, fluid, ergonomic device… to tell you the truth, I’m delighted. Although I confess that I miss the bigger and better contrast screen, as well as the 3D Touch. These are details, but you can tell.
So yes, the first reason why I’ll buy the iPhone Edition is because is a much better screen than any Apple has presented so far : borderless, OLED and the size of the iPhone 7 Plus on a smaller device.
Another reason that makes me tip the scales towards him is the design. At the time I liked the lines of my iPhone 6s, but I had already seen it in the previous model. With the iPhone 7 the feeling was one of déjà vu, the same that I will have with the two models that will accompany the iPhone Edition… and that is that they are so 2015, that the panorama has changed completely. But with Apple’s new flagship, the user experience can be very different. That borderless screen of the iPhone Edition has already become my dark object of desire , despite its ears.
I also don’t forget about Augmented Reality . Although apps with ARKit will work on older iPhones, it will surely be a different experience to enjoy with an iPhone Edition. Personally, I’m already fascinated by what I’ve seen, but Apple seems to have caught the trick where others like Google have failed.
The iPhone Edition promises to be a breakthrough , successfully incorporating certain innovations that you may not need, such as facial recognition, but that for technology lovers are a determining factor. I like to be up to date.
The final reason is more professional than personal, the iPhone Edition looks like an epoch in both Apple and the smartphone industry and it would be a bit weird to write about the iPhone without one. Yeah, it’s a bit of an excuse, but usually those of us who write about technology are real gadget lovers and I’m no exception. There’s nothing we like more than buying a new gadget and giving it a go .
Wow, I finally came up with many reasons to buy the iPhone Edition , but I don’t have them all with me. Do you want to know why?
Why not buy the iPhone Edition?
First of all, the price. Are we crazy or what? Yes, I know we all use it, but it’s just a phone! You’ll use it to call, send WhatsApps, check email, watch YouTube videos, listen to music on Spotify, upload photos to Facebook and play Pokémon GO. Seriously, 99% of people use their phone for that. And you get those features on a 100 euro phone, but if you want to make sure you have some speed and fluidity, you can get handsets for half of that thousand euros that the iPhone Edition will cost. To work I use the computer and to watch videos or read I already have the iPad.
Another reason not to bet on the iPhone Edition is that it is the first generation of this terminal . Yes, we have been using the iPhone for a decade now, but it will be the first time with a mobile phone without borders, without a home button, with facial recognition… I know Apple does things well but they are not perfect. But trust me, S editions are always better.
If I make a global balance I think that the “Yes” wins overwhelmingly, and that we have not valued that Apple always leaves an ace up its sleeve, a “One more Thing” that drives us crazy. But I am clear, I will buy the iPhone 8. What will you do?
