Reasons why the Apple iPhone X or iPhone 8 may be the first iPhone to fail: OK, the time for the big debut of Apple iPhone X it’s almost here, unless real rumors say it will be released later due to production problems. You’ve heard and seen everything about this smartphone, the first iPhone with an OLED screen, with an edge-to-edge screen, without a Home button, even without the Touch ID this time. I knew that the iPhone 8 more recently than the iPhone X and something tell me that it won’t even be the success that Apple fans expect.
The hype and the marketing machine are no longer in effect
People started to learn marketing material, even with Apple. We can no longer fool ourselves with comparisons, with megapixels and RAM games, with marketing terms, with some X-Reality, Splendid, True Tone, double pixel, Ion Glass or other crazy things. We want a pragmatic innovation that we can put our finger on (if possible). Apple would need Steve Jobs and his famous “reality distortion field” badly. At this point in Apple’s evolution, a new clip with a white background and Jony Ive would be just annoying, really annoying.
Apple’s iPhone 8 had many leaks, each reaching the product’s surprise factor. Like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Apple iPhone 7, there were many leaks, but they weren’t. Here we even saw what appeared to be a video with the on-off and functional phone, the Holy Grail of all leaks. We saw component images, deduced functions from the Apple HomePod firmware and scanned the Touch ID sensor anywhere just below the screen.
Many production problems
Every week there is a problem with the production of the iPhone 8 or iPhone X. First, I heard that OLED screens give a lot of pictures, after Samsung imposes high prices and that Apple fails to integrate the touch sensor under the screen ID . When it learned that some component manufacturers failed to deliver on time, Apple had to buy the equipment and produce it on its own.
The information was leaked from Foxconn, Samsung and other partners and does not look good. Even if the product is successful, it can be reduced by the amount of failures in the unit, such as the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, if I remember correctly, much more demand from the public than Samsung expected.
The upper speaker area is awful
I read a lot of news about aesthetic leaks on the iPhone 8 and I still don’t have an editor saying, “Wow, I think this idea is super big and with the big, dark area of the headset and sensors that leave two“ screen tips ”to right and left. Why aren’t all phones like that, Apple marries me and makes me kids?!?!?! “I want to meet a man who appreciates that aesthetic decision and shake my hand to see if it’s real or not. You probably understand that I don’t like Apple’s design, but millions of people are likely to like it.
Functions to come after launch
Apple has a ready excuse. If the iPhone X is released, delayed and neutered, Apple will cite other cases. Remember that the iPhone 7 Plus received the latest picture from the camera and that the Galaxy S8 received the late Bixby in full. The following is a list of features that may arise after launch: wireless charging, extra / new camera functions, face ID set to 100%, apps that take advantage of the space in the supposed contextual shortcut area at the bottom of the screen.
It would be as if the delay was still as short as possible and not even vital functions. My wireless charging seems important, for example, especially if you have a paired accessory, and Apple has years to recover from Samsung in that regard.
Above the price of $ 1000
We all know that iPhones are expensive, no matter how useful you are. In Romania, they are even more expensive, so I don’t even want to think about what scores will be made. Go with the word at the fair that the iPhone X, which is a rare and particular edition of what it is, will have an expensive spike. If the American can pay $ 600 or $ 700 of his $ 2000 or $ 3000 salary, $ 1,000 will suck on the Amex or Mastercard.
And as for Europeans, 1,200 euros would buy holidays in any chic capital of our continent, a few good days. I am not concerned with the demand and the possibility of subscriptions and tariffs, but with an alternative to the iPhone 8 / 7s, will there be more people eager for an investment than in Romania would bring a car almost by hand second?
No touch identification and no home button for so long
It is speculation, but it is going in that direction, judging by the leaks. Since the iPhone 5s, the use of Touch ID and the Home button has become second nature to millions of people. It is true that we will be disappointed, but the inconvenience of the first days and weeks of using the iPhone X will cause many complaints, I am sure.
An instinct after so many years
This brings the “capacity” factor. My gut tells me that this phone can be a failure. It has the potential to sell many units, but if it is promoted as a “special edition”, 10,000 units per month, it will be just a forgotten point in Apple’s many decades of history. Something tells me that you won’t find the iPhone X on every road, in every store, and that the number of units sold will be very small, in addition to other Apple flagships.
The first dual camera on the iPhone did not break the clouds
Apple would do well to surprise us completely with the dual camera on the iPhone X. Its first dual camera on the iPhone 7 Plus was not what it knew, it did not stabilize the video well and the Bokeh effect, although pleasant in the first phase, is now out of date by rivals that the Galaxy Note 8. Interestingly, there are not many details about the room, other than the mention of new resolutions and frame rate shooting, as well as lighting and flash options.
The public’s prerogatives are the same as those of a tall Google Pixel, the excellent HTC U11, the Galaxy S8 and the Notes 8 that spoiled us and after everyone started using dual cameras. Let’s see if Apple successfully breaks the stabilization recipe on the dual camera.
The face identification feature will be impressive until it is no longer
As surprising as Face ID, precise and perfect, able to recognize you, and with the phone on the table, there will be more crispness. There will be a bug, a hack and if I think a “gate” scandal would be “Face ID Gate”. With all the new technologies, there is a potential for problems, and if it is a breach of privacy, a hack that passes you through this authentication or just bug fixes, there is a chance that Apple’s promise will be released here.
Apparently, I can make mistakes, change I am human, I have opinions formed from information extracted from the web, which can be more or less planted by the competition. Each of the above rumors, the negatives, especially move Apple’s needle every day with billions of dollars. These are games that we don’t have access to and that we don’t understand, especially now before the launch of the iPhone X. Since the world stayed true to Note 7 and after it explodes, it would take a “reverse miracle” to make iPhone X a phone failed.
I know this contrasts with everything I said above, but what do we do if the phone is appreciated and cannot be purchased anywhere? If Apple does not meet demand? If the partners do not deliver the components on time? If it is necessary to withdraw a batch due to an error? Is Apple ready for this scam? Apple said, “I can’t wait to find out.” Personally, I say, “I can’t wait to make progress and buy something other than smoke and mirrors.”
