The rough domestic price of the iPhone XS is finally disclosed to the public. High sales volume is anticipated in Korea as there are many opinions that it’s actually cheaper than what they expected. Today, I’m going to talk about 12 reasons why we need to buy the iPhone XS even though it’s expensive. Let’s get it started right away.
You might think the iPhone X users would not change to iPhone XS. However, for those who are in love with iPhone, the improvement of performance is good enough to consider changing to the new device. A good news for those people is that the gold color will be added. It’s slightly different than the iPhone 8. Compare to the iPhone 8, it’s a bit muted conveying a sense of calmness. It’s a beautiful color and it looks differently depending on the angles of light. I highly recommend the gold color for the iPhone X users who’re thinking of getting iPhone XS. It suits well for both men and women.
It’s my job to take pictures with a lot of movement and edit them. The results of the photography, especially the quality of the video, is extremely important. This is why I’ve been consistently using the iPhone. I think the video taken by the iPhone has a great visual quality. Especially, the quality of image stabilization in the camera is outstanding. In addition, the new iPhone XS is equipped with the advanced HDR, High Dynamic Range, which improved the low light video quality. It enables a high visual quality and pretty recordings in general. It is a good enough reason for me to buy the iPhone XS. I’m very satisfied!
Although other smartphones’ quality has improved a lot, none of them could beat the iPhone when it comes to the CPU performance. You could feel the difference when playing games or immediately after taking multiples photos requiring a lot of processing. The A12 Bionic chip is a 7nm processors with processing speed of 5 trillion per second. If you enjoy high-end games, such performance would be an important factor to consider. You can actually feel the difference compared to the iPhone X.
When the iPhone X is first released, the completely opposite gesture to iPad and the poor application compatibility were pointed out. One year later, Apple has perfectly solved these problems. Since the iPhone X is the main model of Apple, most of the applications are compatible and the iPads offers a separate gesture function. Just like this.
I personally like using a smartphone with one hand. But, ironically, I like a big screen. Most of the recent smartphone models satisfy me as they are bezel-less. Among them, iPhone X series has smaller dimensions. Especially, the height is designed a little shorter than the Galaxy series. It was an important factor for me to consider when making a purchase. When I buy such small devices, I tend to be obsessed with small details. I love the rounded external design of the iPhone. Galaxy series or LG products are not as round as the iPhone, while the shape of the iPhone’s edge is a perfect sphere. I love it!
iPhone users who haven’t experience the iPhone X yet might feel disappointed with the iPhone XS' note design and the absence of home button. However, there are now people who use the iPhone X for those reasons. I would like to tell you that note design and the face ID is actually more convenient than what you would expect. It might take a little while to feel comfortable at first, but you will easily get used to it once you begin using it. I’ve been an iPhone user for quite some time, but now I feel like the home button never even existed. If you’re using a prior model than iPhone 7, wireless charging is also an advantage for you to enjoy.
iOS is receiving a lot of negative comments as it’s considered as closed source. Android comparatively allows more freedom and demonstrate higher compatibility than iOS. It’s especially worse in Korea. However, it has some obvious merit including high quality application market, smooth motion, and high security. Also, it guarantees an intuitive usability compare to other iOS even though it got a bit more complicated than in the past. If you already prefer iOS, there’s no doubt that returning to android is not easy.
I should admit that iPhone’s video recording capacity has been impressive, but I thought it left a couple of things to be desired. The fact that it’s a bit narrow-angle and does not support the stereo recording were my only complaints. Finally, the new iPhone XS has the option of stereo recording which allows more realistic video recording. It would have been better if the iPhone equipped with the function earlier since other products already had it for years.
If you use both iPhone and Mac, their compatibility is definitely a plus. You can transfer most of the data without a cable, and variety of data can be stored and manage via iCloud so you can access them using Mac OS and your smartphone. If you want to continue your search from smartphone on your laptop, you can easily do so. You can bring the phrase you are typing on your Mac to iPhone. Or you can just take a photo if you happen to need a picture while you are making a presentation slides.
If you travel abroad frequently, there are actually not many options on smartphones. Some people choose to own two smartphones or choose from dual-SIM smartphones. Since iPhone is being sold internationally, its use is also pretty much universal and supported in most of places. Of course, it cannot be used in all countries, but its use is relatively flexible among the smartphones you can purchase in Korea.
The previous face ID allowed us to register only one face. While the touch ID allows you to register up to 5 finger prints, so you can share it with your lover if your want to, it was not available with face ID. Some mentioned it as an advantage :) Anyways, now you are allowed to register up to 2 faces. It seems like the original purpose was to recognize user’s face with sunglasses, scarf,or face mask. But you can also register a face of another person and it will still unlock your phone. However, the accuracy of the facial recognition system was already pretty reliable, so it’s hard to say if it’s an advantage or not.
The audio of the video was actually recoded using the iPhone XS. I didn’t balance the voice level or anything. iPhones audio recording quality has been great, but the recording application was only available on iPhones, not on Mac nor iPads. With the release of iOS 12, the audio recording application is now available on all of your devices including iPhones, iPads, and Mac. Instead, the application is a bit heavier than before, but I personally think the advantage outweighs the disadvantages.
