My experience with Apple + Thoughts on the iPhone 8 and iPhone X

iPhone X … phone of the century???

So I just had to write a post about these brand new iPhones. Have you seen them???

Now I know a lot of you are die hard Apple fans while others would not trade in their androids for anything. Don’t worry, I got all the perspectives covered.

Once upon a time, I was an apple fan, I mean the whole shebang…iPhone, MacBook Pro but before I could get on the iPad train, we broke up (Apple and I). Prior to the break up, you couldn’t tell me nothing about any other device that wasn’t apple. It was that serious.

Fast forward to a couple of years later, my beloved MacBook Pro started to fail, it first started with the hard-drive, which crashed. After replacing it, I thought the storm was over, so we were still in this relationship. But sometime later, my charger got spoilt and I had to purchase a new one. Might I add that it was quite expensive and not planned for, I mean, was I the only one that thought Apple products were indestructible and meant to last forever?!

So again, I thought I was out of the woods but another surprise was lurking in the corner. My battery started failing. From lasting me about 11 hours (with continuous usage), it went down to about 5 hours, then 1 hour, then 30 mins, then finally became a desktop. Yes, you read it right, my MacBook Pro became a desktop.

Once you took it off the power supply, it would go off. If I was working on something important and the lights went off, I would lose everything. It was as good as not having a laptop and it was very frustrating. I finally decided that Apple wasn’t meant for me, because not only were the replacement parts expensive, but the probability that those parts were not authentic was also very high. I finally decided to get a new laptop … DELL.

Let’s now talk about these new iPhones:

  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone X (pronounced as ‘ten’ not ‘ecks’)

Could these be the next big thing? Apple launched these phones just two days ago and the publicity they are getting is off the roof. I wasn’t counting down to the launch but for some reason I was made very aware of it. That day, almost everyone on my snap was talking about it. Some people even went as far as recording some clips of the launch and then posted on snapchat. So whether I liked it or not, I was very aware of the launch.

iPhone X specs

Now these phones are ‘crazy’ expensive, but for some reason I feel that they would be sold out as soon as orders start coming through. Right now, the phones are unavailable and can only be pre-ordered from October 27. The release date i.e. shipping starts from November 3, 2017 (a day before my birthday…hint hint). NOW that cannot be a coincidence!

iPhone X pricing

The phones of the century are being released a day before my birthday? This can only mean ONE thing … I am meant to have the iPhone X.

I don’t care so much for the iPhone 8 because I feel it’s just a glorified iPhone 7. Yes, it would come with the A11 processor chip, which makes it faster than the iPhone 7. But it looks exactly like the iPhone 7 and I’m not buying that idea.

But let’s have a look at the iPhone X, I’m all about that edge-to-edge display…gorgeous.

    Nice review
    Quite an improvement on the 7. The new processor should give a buttery feel to these gizmos. Hope their cameras are equally as great as their processors.

      Thanks dear.
      The camera apparently has all these fancy mind-blowing features. Can’t wait for the phone to be released to see how good the hands-on reviews would be.
      Thanks for stopping by πŸ’‹

    iPhone X is coming out on my birthday. Super Hint Hint Hint. Will be expecting a surprise.πŸ˜‰
    It is said to be that expensive because of all the outsourced materials. The screen and RAM was made by Samsung. Well, I’d like to see you compare the two (with Samsung S8).
    I think the Samsung will be a better buy but I’d expect that anyone who wants to buy should wait a bit and see if people complain of any manufacturer faults. Don’t be in a rush so you don’t fall a victim like the last Samsung.

    Lovely review by the way. Keep it up

      Lol about the super hintπŸ˜‚
      I agree with you, the wait is very necessary. We have to be sure there are no factory glitches and that the phone is as good as they claim.
      Oh the Dell has been good to me, but I’m thinking about switching to Apple soon πŸ™ˆ
      Thanks for reading and taking time out to comment πŸ’‹
