On the 12th of September, this year, Apple launched its new flagships. The new luxury models were the kins of iPhone X- the Anniversary Phone, released last year. The high price tag they stepped in with, made the marketplace wobble. The flagships were tagged with 4 digit price, which is horribly high! Apart from smashing the dreams of iPhone fans by announcing the new flagships with this high cost, Apple further declared that this four-figure price is here to stay for a while.
So this fall, no expectations must be kept for the prices to fall of new iPhone flagships. Especially the £999 iPhone XS and £1,099 XS Max are far from the reach of 99% of the iPhone fans. Including me. Duh! The other flagship, iPhone XR is tagged with a bit reasonable price i.e. £749. But, opting a handset from the iPhone 7 series is better than a model of iPhone X series.
After this launch event, Apple silently discontinued a few iPhone models, including iPhone 6 and iPhone 5S. Fortunately, the kins of iPhone 7 Series are still in the market. These beautiful, powerful & hi-tech handsets with exciting features give you a magical experience under £600.
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are fantastic handsets that stand strong in the face of its younger, shinier siblings, and it’s still a great option for anyone who’s clung onto an iPhone 4, iPhone 5, and even iPhone 6. A two-generation old mobile phone, which can compete for the new royal flagships very strongly.
We have come up with 7 unavoidable and great reasons for you to go for iPhone 7 series instead of the iPhone X ones. To check them out, read further:
The models of iPhone 7 series are not as expensive as the handsets of iPhones X series. First and foremost, the market price of iPhone 7 is now as low as £450, and £570 is for the iPhone 7 Plus. If compared with the new flagships, iPhone 7 will save your £300 from iPhone XR, £550 from iPhone XS and £650 from iPhone XS Max. whereas, iPhone 7 Plus will cost you £180 less than iPhone XR, £430 less than iPhone XR and £430 less than the iPhone XS Max.
In fact, you can buy two handsets from iPhone 7 series instead of one handset from iPhone X series. Or cool accessories with your handset!
Lighter and Thinner
Well, where the slimmer mobile phones are easier to carry, they also look sexy and pretty to hold. Both handsets, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are slimmer and thinner than the new iPhone flagships succeeding the iPhone X.
Well, in case of weight, iPhone 7 wins the race here because of its lightweight. The iPhone 7 Plus is a bit heavier than the iPhone XS which is being sold with a four-figure price.
Buy the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus to enjoy the amazing experience just by holding your mobile phone.
No Face ID
The iPhone 7 has the home button and fingerprint scanner, which some might prefer over Face ID on the new iPhones.
Face ID is difficult to adapt with and most of the annoyed users complain about the face ID feature and wish to shift back to the fingerprint scanner or the home button. The two generations old iPhone 7 series will be the perfect match for you. Because they are jewelled with the classic home button providing you with the traditional fingerprint scanner to unlock your iPhone.
The iPhone 7 still has a great camera.
Apple did try to make the significant strides with the technology used in the cameras of the new flagship phones by adding features like Smart HDR, but the iPhone 7 still takes great photos. The iPhone 7 Plus even comes with a dual-lens camera system, with one of the lenses donning a 2x zoom.
The iPhone 7 Plus has a higher resolution display than the iPhone XR.
The 6.1-inch display of iPhone XR produces a screen resolution of 828p which is very close to the 750 screen resolution produced by the 4.5-inch screen of iPhone 7. Whereas, in the terms of resolution 1080p resolution of 5.5 inches iPhone 7 Plus completely knocked down the new flagship iPhone XR. So, here again, iPhone 7 Plus gets a win over iPhone XR as it exhibits the sharper display than the larger display of iPhone XR.
The iPhone 7 has a 3D Touch, unlike the iPhone XR.
Plot twist! The iPhone XR doesn’t retain the amazing 3D Touch feature. 3D Touch is the feature that makes you experience the third dimension of touching your mobile screen, in which, you are able to get useful shortcuts by double pressing the icons.
So, our newest member of Apple family here does not even have it! It has completely vanished! Whereas, iPhone 7 series does sport this amazing and time-saving feature. So, if you buy iPhone XR you will not get to experience this amazing feature. So opt for iPhone 7 Series.
The iPhone 7 is still a great performer.
With the new update iOS 12, for some reasons, everyone is getting this idea that better the processor, better will be the performance. Well, no doubt in that! But, that cannot be applied the other way. The iPhone 7 series are operated by the Apple’s A10 chip with extraordinarily works well with the new update. Where, the successors of iPhone X have an A12 Bionic chip to process them, selling the iPhone 7 with the A10 chip, Apple is essentially stating that it’s still a top performer that matches its strict standards.
In a nutshell, iPhone 7 series scores way more than the new flagships of Apple in various fields. Buying the cheap model, a bit old but better than the new ones, is a very wise decision to make!
