A little something for you today. I want to talk about iPhones, just a general chat really.
Out of curiosity, how many of you have an iPhone? I do and i’ve had one now for 6/7 years. I remember the first iPhone I had and it was so…. basic. But it did everything we could have ever dreamed about and more and it still does.
Now as of this weekend my contract is up and of course I will be upgrading my iPhone6 to an iPhone 7 but if you ask me why I don’t know to be honest. Every time I go to upgrade my phone I say I will change to android, but my eyes get lost in the shiny little apple logo and that’s it I’m walking away with the latest iPhone.
iPhones are great phones. The ability to face time is super fun and very useful at showing off your outfit to your pals, plus their emojis are lot nicer than that of androids. They are beautiful handsets and do a sick job at being a phone, but jeeez they are a complete pile of crap. The battery dies ridiculously fast all the time, the screen smashes easily even with a protector on and they have no storage what so ever. Not to mention that they just randomly restart when they feel like it and never do as there told and they are SO EXPENSIVE. Buying a handset outright or even contract costs a ridiculous amount. Every single time I go to upgrade my phone I tell myself that I am refusing to put myself through the pain of having an iPhone again and then it just kinda happens!
But HOW, how on earth did Steve Jobs convince us to invest in this product. Getting a new iPhone is easy. You plug it in and it downloads everything you had on your other phone and bang simple. I don’t know about you but it is so much effort to download everything again and log into all your apps etc.
I don’t know how the big bosses at apple have managed to convince millions of people to invest in such a crap product but we invest our lives in these and would be lost without it. I take my hat off to your Steve Jobs, as rubbish as the iPhone is I will remain a loyal customer.
What are your thoughts on the iPhone, I would be interested to know!
Lots of love,
