iPhone X Series. Tried Them All!
For the past decade, iPhones have been my choice of smart phones. A few months ago I bought the iPhone XR. Used it for 14 days and returned. The XR is smaller than iPhone 6-8 Plus’s, however the screens on the X’s extend to the rims of the devices, making the XR screen larger than iPhone 6-8 Plus’s. To operate the touch screen, my fingers and thumbs must extend a greater distance. Also needed two hands for functions normally done one with iPhone 6’s & 7’s. It was also difficult to view the XR display in bright sunlight. There are settings to draw the reach of the screen closer; and settings to adjust sunlight, but the benefits don’t outweigh the costs to apply those settings. Then I bought the iPhone XS. The biggest problem with the iPhone XS is the discomforting feeling for paying $1,000 for a phone. Finally after 12-days, I returned the XS because of the uneasiness of the phone costing $1,000. Then I got the X. It’s size is perfect! Couldn’t ask for a larger or smaller phone! Miss the home button and don’t appreciate changes made without the use of the home button, like screen shots. I take unintentional screen shots now because the side buttons on each side activate the screen shot, unlike before where it was the home screen and one side button. Also inconvenienced that the battery percentage is no longer an option for the home screen. It’s another step to view battery percentage now. To require additional steps, or screen touches to perform specific tasks is not an improvement of the product. It’s quite the opposite. Apple doesn’t seem to think so since they launched the X a year and a half ago.
