The Apple conference was a successful venture for the company because they launched multiple products at once.
Right from the less popular Apple Watch to an okay upgrade with the iPhone 8 and the futuristic iPhone X, everything found its way to the stage.
Most critics and smartphone journalists are confused at the moment as to why would the company refresh the line up with three different smartphones all at once. After all, no one is going to buy a phone for a slight upgrade from the existing processor right? Exactly! Here’s why you shouldn’t upgrade from your iPhone 7 to the iPhone 8.
Annoyingly Same Design
Yes, we all get it! The iPhone X is the future phone but why would Apple launch an exact phone with identical design and a slightly improved processor on the inside. At first look, you won’t be able to find any difference between these models which voids the purpose of the upgrade.
Minor Performance Boost
The new phone provides a minor performance boost. Nothing groundbreaking at all and it still doesn’t have the 3.5 mm headphone jack. So, why would you spend hundreds of dollars to buy something that makes no real world difference? iPhone 7 is a perfect device with no lags and works perfectly fine.
Camera Performance, Spot the Difference
Before you start believing Apple’s claim, take a photograph on your iPhone 7 and see if it satisfies your need. You can easily confirm how great and realistic those photographs look. The new phone uses new image sensors but once again, it is next to impossible to spot the difference and justify the $700 you should spend again to go to the iPhone 8.
iPhone X is a Much Better Choice
After all the persuasion, you have decided to give your money to Apple. You want something new and fancy. Then, blindly go for the iPhone X which is a much better choice in all ways possible and not only because of the bezel less design.
It introduces Face ID, some cute new emojis, has much better camera performance and obviously costs high. At $999, it is the most expensive smartphone available in the world at the moment unless you are going to buy something studded with diamonds. But, the pricing is worth it for a flagship from Apple that ushers in new technologies and gets rid of all the buttons at once.
