According to the Verge website, I spent about $ 1,300 on a new computer and wanted it to stay for about four years, and of course it would be better to use it. That if I spend more than $ 1,000 on the iPhone, how long will it take for this phone?
Smartphone life will not exceed the computer, usually only about 2 years time. There are many reasons: First, the previous smart phone is not expensive, so manufacturers want users to upgrade the hands of equipment as soon as possible. More importantly, the rapid development of smart phones, every few years will be able to attract new technology to attract consumers to buy.
Sometimes this is a good thing: in the past two years, many smart phones equipped with dual cameras, better processors, HDR display and is becoming the mainstream connection standard USB-C - all of which can be a stimulus you buy new The reason for the phone. However, the continuous development of smart phone technology to those who do not often upgrade the hands of equipment users troubled: a few years, mobile applications will change the card Dayton.
Mobile phone processors continue to upgrade
And other smart phone features, processor technology is increasing year by year, and developers to make their own applications to play a better role, usually updated with the latest smart phone. Those who do not buy new mobile phone users will find a few years after the mobile application is no longer smooth.
Once my iPhone 4s just two years will not take, compared to my iPhone 5s better, but when I upgrade the iOS version I found it really old. In fact, more than iPhone will appear these problems, any smart phone with two years after the battery loss and running problems will be slow. This is not a matter of pleasure, technology in progress, we are wasting a lot of time on these things.
So, buy the iPhone X users will be able to use it longer? I do not think so. iPhone X and iPhone 8 are configured the same processor, next year Apple will release more advanced processors. Even if the iPhone X is equipped with a more advanced camera, there are "future" sense of the design, but the processor will be the same as other iPhone slowly become obsolete.
This seems to have become a hint that the iPhone X is not the ultimate version, this $ 999 (National Bank 8388 yuan) to start the phone is for technology enthusiasts and high-income people prepared. This part of the reason people buy this phone just want to have a best phone - not because the iPhone X how advanced, more lies in its appearance on the improvement and entertainment attributes. If Apple next year launched iPhone X2 (or called XI?), Then the iPhone X is no longer high-end, I suspect that this group of people to buy new iPhone.
For many smartphone users, they may want to buy iPhone X but do not plan to replace the device every year. For me, a $ 999 iPhone X and $ 699 iPhone 8 as slowly outdated is very frustrating, looking forward to buy a high price of the phone can be used more than 2 years is unlikely.
Of course, not everyone wants to buy a cell phone only 2 years. If you replace the old phone for the new battery, mobile phone life problems can be resolved; if you usually do not use the application, mobile phone performance problems become no longer important. Apple will not often introduce groundbreaking features, I do not believe you can buy a new 3D Touch phone.
Processor, battery limit iPhone X life
From this point of view, an iPhone's life is usually longer than the upgrading of technology to be long. Although I think the phone with two years to eliminate, but there are a lot of people do buy a phone can be used for many years. iPhone X may not be in the next two or three years because of the emergence of new features become obsolete, but no one can guarantee that the future it can have a satisfactory battery life.
I am very worried about this problem, even if you want to buy iPhone X spent three or four years, but you can not guarantee the future of the phone what will happen. Mobile phones and computers will slowly become slow to run, when you spend high prices to buy it, you usually want it to use for many years, but the iPhone X will be the same as other iPhone was slowly eliminated.
