Today I watched that video for that new iPhone that should be coming out sometime in November. Personally, I don’t like the design of the newer iPhones that much, even though I do like how shiny they are on the back. For some reason I like phones that are basic and old, because I’m weird in that way.
The iPhone X (I guess they decided not to call it the iPhone 8…) looked really high-tech to me, I don’t know why. The design looked like something from the future, but I didn’t really like it. The screen literally takes up the entire device, which is weird to me, because I’m used to having buttons underneath the screen.
The camera looked cool. I didn’t like how the lens was really huge, but I guess it has to be huge to fit all of the stuff that makes it great inside. One of the things I thought were cool about the iPhone 7 when I messed around with one in the Apple Store was the camera. It just seemed so clear, and had lots of different settings on it. My favourite camera mode was the portrait mode. Maybe the camera is actually really crappy, but to me it seems amazing, since I’m used to using the camera on my iPhone 5C, which is kind of outdated now, and my old Nokia Lumia 630 had the worst camera in the world.
The face unlocking feature seemed interesting. I’m sure I had a friend with an Android phone which could do that, though. That thing probably only used the camera, whereas this iPhone feature scanned your face with a laser thingy or something. They even showcased a feature where you can animate emoticons using your face. I don’t care for emojis, (I even deleted them off of my phone) but that feature looked cool. It might not even be available when the phone is actually released, though.
I think this fancy new phone even comes with a new version of iOS, because the icons that it had on the screen looked updated. They obviously have to do that, otherwise the new features on this device wouldn’t be supported.
I will probably never get one of these, because they’ll be really expensive, as Apple products always are, and because I don’t need a new phone. When it comes out, I’m sure there will be lots of kids in my school whose parents will buy it for them, even if they already have a brand new iPhone 7 that they only got a few months ago.
I don’t really follow the releases of brand new mobile phones, so maybe this thing isn’t that technologically advanced, and there’s probably an Android phone which can do more than this. I did see a Samsung in a shop the other day where the screen almost took up the entire phone, like this iPhone did…
The only phones I really want are outdated Windows Phones, and that crappy Motorola ROKR phone from over ten years ago, only because it has disco lights on the side…
Anyway, there’s my post for today. I only really proof-read the first paragraph, so there’s probably loads of errors in here. At least I actually made a post on this blog!
(I hope this entire video for this new phone wasn’t fake or just a concept…)
