Why You’ll Want the iPhone X
The world has become a mobile place. Everyone is on the move and everyone brings their phone with them. And without a doubt, Apple is leading the mobile phone race. For years the iPhone has reigned as the king with Samsung at close second. But maybe this time, the iPhone X will widen the gap!
The evolution is unprecedented. 10 years ago, no one would have imagined how critical cellular phones would be in everyday life. I remember growing up seeing my dad bring around this beltbag with his “cellphone” inside. It was this big, bulky thing with an antenna and a cord. It was like carrying a small backpack! He used it to make and take calls from his office even when he was away.
But today, everyone has a smartphone. Everyone has a mobile phone. It has become so integrated in our lives that it is now almost impossible to thing about not having one. Sure, we still use our phones to send SMS messages and make phone calls. But it has become so much more. It is a calculator. It is an alarm clock. I mean come on, who still uses a clock or a watch to set off their alarm every morning? I bet you use your phone. It even serves as a flashlight!
“The smartphone is everyone’s go to device”
The smartphone is everyone’s favorite device to look for lost keys and things. It is your daily schedule planner. And with the advent of camera technology in smartphones, it has negated the use of digicams! Remember digital cameras? Those small, rectangular things with micro SD slots that we used to hold and bring around to take our photos? They are all but gone now! Replaced by the cameras in our smartphones!

And of course, there is the access to the internet through our phones. I remember back in the day when the internet meant scratching the back of a car to get your ISP ‘load’ and entering the digits in your chunky computer with a CRT monitor and waiting for the buzzer and beeps to finish so that you know you have already been connected. But make sure no one uses the landline! Or else you will get disconnected! But today, all it takes is one swipe and one click and you will see that beautiful 3G or LTE or WiFi sign on top of your phone and you are all set! In a few seconds, you are instantly connected to the world through facebook, twitter, Instagram, and all the other social media apps! I love checking my email on my phone!
“Smartphones are now a competitive gaming device”
How about mobile phone gaming? Before gamers would race towards their PCs to load in their CD ROMs and play their favorite game. Data Blitz is a gamer’s best friend and candy store as you will find the best consoles and games that you are looking for whether you are a Playstation fan or an Xbox enthusiast. But today, one click will bring you to an online store and within seconds, you would already have downloaded the latest app, and viola! A video game at your fingertips! The graphics have become so much better in recent years, bringing console and PC quality images to the phones. And with the new quad and octa core phone processors, they have become faster than the first gen gaming consoles!
These days all you need is a smartphone. And just yesterday, Apple unveiled the most advanced and breathtaking smartphone to date, the iPhone X!
