iPhone X….yes or no?

So to be clear, I’m not an Apple worshipper. I’m an iPad owner and think it’s great but I’ve never had an iPhone. Largely because I was one of those heretics that loved his Blackberry, and keyboard. And when Blackberry was swamped by the consumer commercialisation of Android and iOS to the extent that they lost nearly all their market share, I moved to Android. And actually I quite like Android. Even more so with the phones that Huawei were making at an extremely competitive price, with stacks of features that often exceeded some of the Samsung offerings.

So I was intrigued at what the iPhone X could bring to the market that would rival the original iPhone introduced 10 years ago (yes, it really is that long ago).

But I’m disappointed…..a depth sensing camera (which allows facial recognition), an all glass case (for wireless charging), a larger screen area and no home button. It looks good but is it worth $999? Or £999 in UK (can someone explain why it costs 30% more in the UK?). I’m not sure.

I am sure that Apple fans will rave about it, but apart from aesthetic virtues I can’t see the extra value and it sure doesn’t disrupt the market like the original did……but then I’m quite likely at the end of my current contract to move to a SIM only contract and not refresh my phone as it does everything I want, but maybe that’s just me.
