🤔 Wondering if it’s worth upgrading to the IPhone X?
📵 I’ve upgraded my IPhone every other year for the past 8 years and I’m breaking that tradition this year!
👇 In this article, you’ll find 5 reasons why not to upgrade to the Iphone X.
(If you missed the recent apple launch, watch the round up video below)
If I’m going to fork out £1,000 for the IPhone X (or equivalent in a monthly contract), I want to be excited by the new features. I’m not.
When I upgraded to the IPhone 7+ from the IPhone 6, I was buzzing about the huge HD screen and upgraded dual 10x zoom reverse cameras. This time around, the Iphone X’s features aren’t that exciting…
My girlfriend’s got this on her Samsung and it seems pretty pointless. It’s also double as expensive to repair the screen if you break it (which you will).
The iPhone 8 now has glass on the front AND back so I can shatter my screen on 2 sides & stare into my reflection with disappointment twice

From a design perspective, this seems more clean. However, it’s not that exciting.
Ok, this is probably the coolest sounding feature, but I can see there being a lot of problems with it (e.g. when you try and unlock your phone in the rain).

This is good, but we probably won’t notice the changes with the human eye.
You will be able to get this on your old IPhone.
Cool, but Apple could easily make a less-expensive, more durable charging solution.
I’m really happy with the display of my IPhone 7+. Will we really notice the difference?
I mean, these do look fun! However…Snapchat and Facebook’s free lenses do the same thing.
Considering how long I’ve waited to make face-recognition-driven talking poop emojis- finally getting it for a thousand dollars is a steal.

The Iphone 7+ is still such a good phone and you can pick a good condition, second hand one up from £450. You can get a brand new one from £690 (check PriceRunner).
Most features are the same or very similar to the IPhone X. It’s a no brainer!
Normally, when paying for an IPhone over a 2 year contract, it doesn’t seem like a huge expense.
If the IPhone X costs a minimum of £1,000, then just to pay off the handset on a contract you’re talking £41.66 per month. Then you need to add on fees from the network provider.
Surely contracts will start from £60+ per month (for a tiny amount of minutes and data)??
As I‘m writing this, on Moneysupermarket you can get an IPhone 7+, no upfront cost, unlimited texts, unlimited minutes, 12GB data for £30 per month! Half the price!!

Apple’s Face ID feature didn’t work first time in their live launch event. Can you see there being problems with this in the future? I can…
You go to grab your IPhone out of your pocket.
You think you’ve got a good grip.
You pull the phone.
You don’t have a good grip.
It slips out of your hand.
In slow motion it falls as you fumble to catch it.
The screen smashes.
We’ve all been there. Well guest what!? Now the Iphone X has a glass back, making it twice as likely to smash when you drop it and twice as much to repair. Yipee!
everyone: give us group facetime and better battery life please
apple: the iphone 8 is now completely made of glass
