The iPhone Xs and Xr release

Recommended Posts

This is now getting ridiculous for just a phone.   But, each to there own.   One of the models can now have a dual sim.  512GB RAM. Waterproof and nothing else,  not even a word on 5G support!   However I haven’t looked at the specs.

am due for an upgrade, tend to do the S's

 

so went 5s, 6S, which is what I have, skipped the 7, 8 and X so pleased to see the Xs

 

now to decide whether worth going for Xs or Xs max

 

its definitely all about eXceSs I do think :D 

 

good point on the 5G maybe should wait for that ? ...

the piggy in the middle XR is also worth a consider

 

"The more interesting phone, at least in terms of offering something new, is the iPhone XR. Sitting in between the XS and XS Max in terms of size and keeping the same general design, it's less expensive than either of them thanks to its LCD screen, aluminum frame and single rear camera. Unlike its pricier siblings, it comes in six different colours: white, black, blue, yellow, coral and red.

 

While Apple's push for more and more expensive phones has kept it profitable in a market where people are upgrading less frequently, it was the presence of the less expensive phone that caught the attention of analysts following the briefing. If Apple can get more budget-conscious people from an older phone to an XR, it will open them up to the company's world of new and lucrative services and apps. Of course "less expensive" doesn't mean "inexpensive". The XR will start at $1229 for a 64GB model when it launches in Australia on October 26."

My 6s+ screen broke again and considered waiting for the upgrade but man that’s a mad price for a phone

Seems they are catching up with other companies, dual sim and twin cameras are not new, just new to apple.

Not surprising considering 5g hasn't even started being rolled out and the 5g Standard was only just finalised in June.

 

There's a chance that the 2019 iPhone might be 5g compatible but realistically I can't imagine the 5g network becoming large enough to worry about till 2020.

 

Considering my 6 Plus is now 4 years old I'm not sure whether stretching it out another year won't be pushing things a little bit too far..... :unsure:
