Everyone talks about how expensive the iPhone is, but when you look at the prices of Android devices, they are, honestly, not that much less expensive. I remember when I got my Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, it was the same price as the iPhone 10-S is going to be, and that was 3 years ago. I liked the phone, and honestly miss it sometimes, but with my vision loss meant I had to do what I had to do, so in 2016, I got my iPhone 6s Plus, and as of today, I ordered the iPhone 8 Plus. Since I have a feeling I will be holding on to this phone for a while, I went all out and topped it off with the 256GB of storage space.
Apple has apparently procured the necessary pattons to eventually come out with a fingerprint scanning screen, or something along those lines, from what I understand, but not sure how true this actually is, so don't get me to lying about it.
After having done some homework, here's the order of iPhones, from worst to best, in my opinion; for this information is based on phone specs and features. starting from the 2017 generation.
iPhone 8, 10-R, 10, 8 Plus, 10-S, 10-S Max
I put this order together in terms of a balance of features to power. Although the iPhone 10 was originally advertised as the best phone Apple ever made last year, when looking at the internal numbers, it has pretty much all the same hardware as the 8 Plus, and for us, the things that really don't matter, such as screen backlight, and resolution, which really is the only main difference, besides the obvious face/touch ID. Although having a larger screen, the physical form factor is smaller than the 8 Plus. The one main reason I put the 8 Plus above the 10 was the battery life, that, and the louder speaker levels.
The 10 R will be the faster phone, but doesn't have nearly the same amount of features, and they mentioned the phone will last an hour and a half longer than the 8, it will not, however, apparently outlast the 8 plus battery, or the 10 battery, hence why they specifically mentioned the 8 and only the 8, not the 10 or 8 Plus, which we know have larger batteries; another reason I went with the plus over the standard.
Being blind, who's going to care about back lighting, or screen resolutions as much; for we are not playing video games or watching tv shows with our eyes, we use our ears and truth be told, that's the bigger thing they pointed out about the new iphones, especially the 10-S and 10-s Max which if I recall they compared to the 8 and not the 10 for good reason. They talked so much about gaming and visuals, and that's it. hence why I said stuff we won't care about basically.
SO yeah, the 8 Plus 256 GB for me, and then put the rest of the left over money on some hardware to use for the phone, like a bluetooth to aux output adapter so I can hook my phone up to my mixer and such.
Enough of my complaining.
