Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Buy iPhone 8 And iPhone X


If you’re a fan of Apple’s devices, there are good chances that you’re already owning iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, or iPhone 6s. In that case, it doesn’t make sense buying the new iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus; they’re pretty much the same devices, with some upgrades.

One can argue that these new iPhones have the new A11 Bionic chip, which is X% faster than other chips. Well, I doubt that your iPhone 6s Plus or iPhone 7 has become noticeably slower. If all the features like camera, video streaming, Touch ID, etc., are working fine, there’s no good reason to buy a device that should’ve been called iPhone 7s instead of iPhone 8.
The same argument could be made about the camera improvements. The new devices will surely perform a little better and you won’t even notice the difference with your bare eyes. If you combine these upgrades, they aren’t worth the $700 you need to pay. Wireless charging, which was introduced by Apple’s competitors a couple of years ago, too doesn’t justify the upgrade.
However, if you’re a new user who wishes to make a switch, iPhone 8 is a welcome addition. If you’re skeptical about making a switch from Android to iOS but you wish to own an amazing piece of technology, there are other options like Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, HTC U11, LG V30, etc. Competitors like OnePlus 5 too can’t be ignored.
Coming to iPhone X, it has surely got its gimmicks and good looks. However, being Apple’s first edge-to-edge display, I’m a little skeptical about its durability. I’ve confidence in Apple’s newly introduced ways of interacting with a phone and AR apps, but I think it’d be nice to wait for a little and see how things turn out to be in daily use.
iPhone X looks pretty but I can’t get my mind off the split status bar; it’s a big concern for me. I’m sure that pictures, videos, and fullscreen apps will look weird on this screen. Am I the only one feeling so?
Moreover, the $1,000 price tag is insane for a smartphone. I’m finding it hard to justify it and label iPhone X as a device that’ll take all your pains away and make your human life a lot better. Take those $1,000 and do something else that matters more than an end-to-end display.
