If you follow me on Twitter you might have noticed I ordered (and then cancelled) my iPhone X order on Friday. To be fair my bank took care of most of the work as it flagged a fraud check. The question I’ve been getting is did I change my mind?
Well, it’s complicated.
Whilst I disagree with the pricing structure I asked myself again what opportunities does it present to me and what problems does it overcome? This was in the recent light of being offered £400 for my existing phone meaning an upgrade to the X would be £599 for me. It has me rethinking as I normally spend about this much per year.
The main draw of the X for me was the camera of the Plus (I love it!) in a smaller body.
The main argument against was Apple charging as much as they have for it whilst taking away the 128GB model. I’d have to get the 64GB version this time around.
So I’m in a moral dilemma, fact of the matter is getting one on launch is going to be impossible now so in the grand scheme of things it’s not important.
Actually in the overall grand scheme of things at the moment whether I get a new phone at some point or keep my existing isn’t that important really...
