    Are you getting the new iPhone X?

    Are you getting the new iPhone X?

    Hello World,
    The technology on this planet is getting better and better to which at a certain point it is actually scary. The new iPhone is coming out soon, with probably the best technology we can get with our smart phones. Although, it does come with the small price of $999 lol.

    Anyways, I was wondering if you think you are willing to buy a smartphone that is this expensive with the features it has such as face recognition, dust and water proof? Or would you rather stick to a cheaper phone such as the iPhone 7 or 8 without those exact features?

    Re: Are you getting the new iPhone X?

    I currently have the iPhone 7, and to see the iPhone X and the idea of no physical button and just full on screen, I personally dislike it. I love my home button and the 3D touch it has to offer. And also i find fingerprint to be more convenient than facial recognition because I can just open my phone while i'm like sleeping or something and I don't have to stare at that bright screen just to open the phone. And I feel like fingerprint would be faster too. Although, I love the new camera the iPhone X has to offer with the 4k recording with 60 frames per second. But I do not think it's worth the upgrade from my iPhone 7. That's my thought on this(:

    Hi all!

    If I had $1,000 then I would definitely buy it! Personally, I am a fan of Apple and I love all of their products. I haven't had any major issues with anything from them and I love the way my computer and my phone are able to talk to each other. The face recognition thing is really cool and I think will definitely be a better protector for my phone than even my fingerprint. The new camera is also amazing and it has so many cool features. I am however somewhat broke so I don't think I'll be able to afford it.

    Thanks for the forum!

    Re: Are you getting the new iPhone X?

    I am not going to buy it. I am happy with my iphone 6. Before I had my iphone, I was rockin' an old slide phone that worked just fine, so I don't really need all the cool gadgets and features.

    I probably wont' be getting the new iPhone X, as interesting as an iPhone sounds, and as much as I would love to have one just for one week, I probably wouldn't be able to afford it. That $999 can go towards college tuition and books for me. I'm pretty content with my current phone - a $180 Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime (Ever heard of that?) . It doesn't have even half the features of most of the flagship phones today, but the battery and camera lens are replaceable by hand, and if I want more space I can drop $12 for a 30gb sd card or about $30 for a 64 gb sd card. I find that with iPhones, you have to pay a lot more for a lot more storage, for me, the more storage the better!

    Hey RENTATA,

    Nope. That's the price of my new laptop, and without even knowing the specs of the new iPhone, I can guarantee it can do a lot more. I'm a CS major, so having a powerful computer is a lot more practical than a nice phone. I use it all the time, where as my phone only occasionally. Eventually I'd like to get a new one - mine only cost $30 dollars - but I wouldn't want to spend any more than 200 - 300 dollars (money that I don't have).

    I'm not going to sit here and say Apple products are bad, they're just overpriced for what you get.

    Thanks,

    -Nathan

    I think the iphoneX is just ridiculous. My friends and I were joking like what if you were wearing make-up when you do your facial recogniton, and get locked out next time you try to access it cause you took your make-up off. There's this kid at my work that is so stoked about the X, he's been saving his money to buy it when it comes out. I personally really like the iphone 7, the fingerprint lock is super convienent and everything else works just fine. Plus, my phone is paid off so I'm in no rush to go spend 900+ dollars on a new phone.

    Re: Are you getting the new iPhone X?

    Hey RENTATA,

    I don't think that I will buy the iPhone X. I will probably stick with one of the older ones and less advanced ones. I am honestly considering switching over from iPhone to an android device of some kind. Their hardware is so much better and they come out with it sooner than iPhone does. The only thing that I really like about iPhones is the software and security that comes with it.

    Re: Are you getting the new iPhone X?

    Hey!

    Who has that kind of money?! In my dreams.

    If you see any extra lying around send them my way.

    Thanks for the forum!

    Hello all,

    Simply, NO I'm not getting the new IPhone. I have always been puzzled by the craze for these gadgets. I get that many people like new stuff especially the tech stuff but buying a new phone every time they come out and possibly not even using all of the new apps they're crazy about, leaves me unbelievably flabbergasted. They will repeat in a year's time when another IPhone comes out.

    Well that's part of what makes the world go round. It's a cycle.

    Thanks for reading
