I purchased it for my husband who was celebrating a major birthday.
It cost as much as a laptop computer.
Normally, I would be the first person in my family to get one. I'm an early adopter who loves tech.
But not this time, maybe never again.
Don't get me wrong. The new phone is better than my 7 plus: it unlocks with facial recognition. It features dramatically improved picture quality. It has a longer battery life. You can charge it by placing it on a wireless charging base.
But not essential.
For the time being, I will not upgrade. Which leaves me wondering when will people stop upgrading or even just pause upgrading.
What might make me upgrade to the X?
A drastic price reduction.
An interesting color - yes, I am that shallow. For the ninetieth time, why does everything come in just black or grey?
Otherwise, I'm hanging on.
But introduce a new iPad Mini and I'm yours.
