10 Reason for you no to buy the iPhone XS, especially if you are already having iPhoneX. There just is not that much more interesting stuff in the new iPhone XS to warrant the upgrade.It’s just not worth the $999 extra money. Yes,the iPhone Xs max is appealing and if you have been waiting for a Plus sized iPhone X, now is your chance. But for everyone else, you are either better off waiting another year or buying something else.
All the reasons you shouldn’t buy the iPhone XS
The new iPhone XS Max 512 GB costs $1449 That’s almost $1500 for the top of the line iPhone! The iPhone XS starts at $999 but the model you actually want to get, the 256GB one, costs $1149. That’s a lot of money. Wouldn’t you rather get a new MacBook Air with that, or just save up?
• 2. Buy an iPhone X Instead iPhone Xs
There’s a reason Apple discontinued the iPhone X. It’s too damn good. They knew that if iPhone X was in the lineup, a $100 cheaper, almost no one would buy the iPhone XS.
• 3. No Awesome Feature in iPhone XS
The iPhone XS doesn’t have any new awesome features. Smart HDR, Depth effect editing, Dual SIM are nice to have, but not revolutionary.
• 4. iPhone XS Isn’t That Much Faster
Compared to iPhone X with iPhone XS scores 4,813 in single-core and 10,266 in multi-core. The iPhone X, on the other hand, has a single-core score of 4061 and a multi-core score of 9959.
• 5. Your Old iPhone Is About To Get Faster Too
When you update your old iPhone to iOS 12, you’ll actually see a performance increase. And yes, I know Apple says this every year and no one believes them, but this time, it’s actually true.
• 6. Apple Is Promising To Keep Older iPhone Running Longer
At the iPhone XS event, Apple announced its plan to stop mining the earth completely to make new iPhones. One of the ways they will do that is by making older iPhones last longer. So if you’ve got an old iPhone, go get the battery replaced, upgrade to iOS 12 and see if you can continue using it.
• 7. Wait For 2019 iPhones
If you’ve already got an iPhone 8 Plus, or an iPhone X, it makes sense to wait for the 2019 iPhones. To make the upgrade really worth your while, and worth the money.
• 8. Check Out the iPhone XR Instead
I strongly suggest you wait till the iPhone XR is available to make a decision on your upgrade. Read about why we think iPhone XR is the most interesting iPhone this year in the link below.
• 9. The Not So Killer Features
The iPhone XS comes with a new feature that lets you adjust the depth effect on Portrait Mode photos. But you can do that on iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X using a free app called Focos And want to shoot better photos on the iPhone you already have?
• 10. No Fast Charging, No Awesome Accessories
The thousand dollar iPhone still doesn’t ship with a fast charging adaptor! I can’t imagine how long it will take to charge the massive battery in iPhone XS Max. Apple has removed the Lightning to headphones adaptor from the box. Plus, AirPower is nowhere to be seen. There’s no USB C to Lighting cable either.
