That´s the over $1000 question.Buying iPhone has always been a tricky question, but now Apple has make it even more complicated by laughing three new phones at once:
iPhone 8 Plus
We’ll check everything for you to help you decide which is best for you.
So at first you could ask yourself “is now a good time to buy a new iPhone?“
Well the iPhone X ain´t cheap but, the answer is: YES it is a great time for a new iPhone!
It is good time to buy an iPhone for several reasons. At first it is a great moment if you want the latest and greatest iPhone technology. It is ideal time for it!
Even if not, it is perfect moment to buy, older models because you should be able to find good deals and discounts.
Which storage capacity?
So each iPhone is avilable in two capacity options. You should decide which you need before you buy, because iPhones don`t have microSD card slot.
So if you download a lot of apps or use to take a lot of photos with your phone you should go for the bigger one.
So for now let us go ahead to the new iPhone X which will be available to pre-order from apple from 27 October. It will be release to celebrate iPhone 10 Birthday.
The new iPhone looks really different from the other iPhones.
There will be no touch ID anymore, just Face ID to unlock your phone.
5.8in edge-to-edge screen, Face ID, 12Mp dual-lens camera on the rear and Portrait mode for the front and back cameras, Wireless Charging using the Qi standards, it all
Sounds very satisfying, but it will be very, very, very, very expensive. iPhone X will be starting at 999$ and this is a lot of money for a phone. iPhone X with a glass back and even more glass on the front will be a investment that you will need to take very good care of.

What about the Colors?
So the new iPhone X will be available in Silver or Space grey.
64 GB or 256 GB capacity configurations.
64 GB model costs 999$ and 256 GB model cost 1,149$ ( both sold out on Apple site right now)
Different from the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus
– iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are cheaper
iPhone and 8 Plus retain the home button with Touch ID
They are available from Sept. 22
iPhone X preorders start October 27
– iPhone X has a larger screen, no home button
– The iPhone X comes in black and silver, but not gold ( iPhone 8 come also in gold)
But now the question..
Should you upgrade?
For the most part, the high cost of the phone has been the main discussion point, but for a good reason. Well it is true, but the new iPhone X is the most powerful iPhone ever made and its looks ver very good. But its probably not worth to upgrade and to buy the new iPhone X.
But we don’t think it is worth to upgrade. Why? So the only model that make sense to buy is the 256 GB version of iPhone X. Why? Because no one will stuck with 64GB space on a phone whose best feature is 4k Video camera. So you see it makes no sense to buy 64GB iPhone X. The version with 256 GB will cost you 1,149$.
The iPhone X performs well. That extra power which comes with the new A11 Bionic chipset isn’t going to drain your battery. Even for basic users, that’s a huge bonus.
This all lead to a better multitasking capability, too. So if you’re a user who is always checking social media, playing games and reading news at the same time, then the iPhone X could be the right one for you.
But its comes up to you if you want to spend over 1000$ on a phone, then go for it, but for the most part though, if you’re a basic user the iPhone X just doesn’t offer enough in the device to justify the price for you.
