Why I didn’t order a iPhone X

It’s that time of year – November and the iPhone frenzy is well underway.

I have been on AT&T’s new iPhone every year program for several years. But this year I didn’t order an iPhone 8 or X.

Here’s why. I currently have an iPhone 7 Plus. I checked the specifications of the iPhone 8 Plus and did not see enough of a difference to justify starting the financial clock over by upgrading.

I really considered upgrading or buying outright an iPhone X. There are dozens of new features that are truly the future. But the press has been merciless about the potential for problems with all the new and revolutionary technology.

So I decided to finish off buying my iPhone 7 Plus and hopping off the merry go round with a new phone every year, but always with 24 monthly payments (in fairness to AT&T always interest-free.)

Will I eventually buy an iPhone X? Absolutely! Check with me in three to six months after Apple stabilizes manufacturing and IOS 11.x works smoothly with all the features of the iPhone X. Meanwhile, I’ll enjoy a lower bill from AT&T for a while.

  1. I had an iPhone 6 Plus and it was really lagging in responding to my commands. Consequently, I DID upgrades to the 8 Plus and really like it. I did not see a need to go to the X.

    1. I agree that the 7 Plus and the 8 Plus are great machines. The 10 is the future though – OLED screen, facial recognition, AR, superior camera system, advanced neural engine and much more.
