So Apple just announced the new iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max. So if you’re already an owner of the iPhone X, the question now becomes — is it worth it to upgrade to the iPhone XS?
Here are 5 reasons why the iPhone XS is not worth your money.
Same Old Design.
Same old design. Nuf said.
Same Big Ugly Notch.
It’s no secret the Apple popularized the notch on the display and perhaps even made it cool. But as more and more vendors minimize the notch and attempt to remove the notch altogether (OPPO Find X, VIVO NEX, Samsung Galaxy Note9), Apple hasn’t even made any effort to reduce the size of the notch on the display. Still ugly, right?
30 Minutes More Battery Life.
Not much improvement here either. Even with a more efficient A12 Bionic chip, the battery life is only 30 minutes longer than that of the iPhone X. In real-world usage, this might not even be noticeable between the two.
Still Crazy-*ssed Price.
So you shelled out over Php60,000 for the iPhone X last year. Unless you have tons of money to spare, there’s not much reason to spend that same crazy amount of money for the iPhone XS.
Apple has a cheaper new iPhone, the XR.
There’s a cheaper but bigger iPhone, the iPhone XR. It costs 25% lower ($749) than the iPhone XS ($999) but has almost the same features. At that price, maybe you can even sell your one-year-old iPhone X and buy the iPhone XR without spending extra. It comes in 6 new cool colors too!
