iPods and iPhones

Recommended Posts

I’m working in Singapore this week and my work have lent me an iPad Pro. Fuck me it is a nice machine, I’m not sure how I’m going to be able to give it back. I’ve ended up using in place of my work laptop and managed with ease to use the software I would normally. Been having a look on the apple store and there is no way I can afford one.

Just upgraded to an iPhone 8plus, my poor 6s was suffering and looked like battery failure was about to happen, the plus is stunning! Love the camera and just the size, bigger than a phone but smaller than an iPad, it has effectively replaced my iPad for most stuff.

That’s some bullshit lol. I’ve had my 6S for two years and I’m gonna use it for ten if I can. Probably not though. According to the battery health check thing it’s at 76% maximum capacity now. Although I do have one of those portable power supply things so the battery is practically a non issue.

fucking hell, over a thousand pounds for a phone!

 

Wasn't the last Samsung over a grand as well?

 

As impressive as the latest phones are I just don't give a fuck anymore. Give me a £200 phone ever 2 years and I'm good. All the extra stuff they can do now is pretty much superfluous. I know some people see them as status symbols, but you know what? That money in my bank account is a status symbol too, and I don't have to look like a yuppie twat peacocking around with a piece of glass that can be broken with an accidental drop.

You know they'll be a big long line of twats standing outside of the Apple store come launch though... Most of them will be on the dole too.

I don’t have a computer or a laptop and my phone is the only access I have to the internet, my email, a camera, 4K video camera, all the apps I share with my gf to communicate anytime anywhere, music, streaming service. Everything you take for granted having both a computer and a phone and a tablet. So it’s not a simple case of being a twat if you have an expensive phone. It’s my computer so I make sure it’s the best I can afford. Without it I’d be level pegging with grizzly adams.

I literally just upgraded last week. Apart from hugely better battery life I'm not seeing a huge amount of difference between the S9 and my 2 year old HTC 10.

 

If you're getting a new phone anyway, and it's the same price or less than you're paying, why not get the latest, but there's really no reason for spending 1k on a phone, it;'s going to do everything at the same speed as a phone around half that price

 

That said, if you can afford it, it's your money, spend it how you want
