There are many iPhone lovers who like to upgrade every time a new iPhone is released. This time around, we have iPhone X that is different from the last year’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
If you are confused whether to upgrade from iPhone 7 Plus to iPhone X, read further. In this article, we explore the reasons to upgrade and the reasons not to upgrade to iPhone X.
Reasons to upgrade
iPhone X features edge-to-edge display with a stunning 5.8-inch OLED technology, which is something none of the earlier iPhones, including the iPhone 7 Plus had.
iPhone X runs on A11 Bionic chipset which supports Augmented Reality, performs faster than A10 Fusion chipset (in iPhone 7 Plus) and can do 600 billion operations per second.
iPhone X features Face ID which removes the burden to touch the fingerprint sensor every time to unlock the phone, the most common task that every user does, on a day-to-day basis.
iPhone X supports Qi charging which means we can charge the phone by placing it on the charging pad. Though sold as an accessory, it can be bought from mophie or Belkin even before Apple launches its own charging pad (Air Power) in 2018.
True Depth front camera in iPhone X can record 50 different facial expressions to make your own Animoji and send it across iMessage.
With the launch of iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus, Apple forays into AR. Though there are limited applications for now, we can expect lot of action in future.
Reasons not to upgrade
$1000 price tag of iPhone X makes it super premium over other smartphones. In fact, the Samsung Galaxy S8+ and Note 8 suddenly appears cheaper when compared with iPhone X.
Not sure if Face ID can deliver better security over Touch ID and passcode lock.
Hardcore iPhone fans may miss things like home button or other features that they were so much used to, in earlier iPhones.
