What are the pros and cons of having and using an iPhone?

January 29, 2020

If you are considering purchasing an iPhone or upgrading to a new model, and you’re weighing the pros and cons of doing so, the following information should help. After reviewing the content below, we at Cell Phone Zone think you’ll find that the pros far outweigh the cons, and that making an investment in an iPhone is one you will enjoy.

Pros:

Screen Sizes– When the iPhone X first came out, it was only available with a 5.8-inch screen. Apple eventually recognized that one size does not fit all, so they introduced a 6.1-inch screen as well as a 6.5-inch screen.

Updates– Bugs are frequently discovered in operating systems after their initial release. Updates are meant to fix these glitches so your phone is always operating at peak efficiency. iOS updates and patches are available immediately after Apple releases them so you’re always working with the best available system.

Improved Photography– The new dual lens setup provides 12-megapixel power to both wide angle and telephoto shots, giving phone users greater versatility, improved shot quality, and better photos in low-light settings. In addition, the new Portrait mode allows iPhone users to adjust the depth of field on their shots even after the picture has been taken, which is especially helpful if you want to add blur to the backgrounds of photos.

OLED Quality– Apple has started adding organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screens to their newer models, giving users a 60 percent greater dynamic range, which means a sharper, more colorful image display.

Bionic Processing– Also beginning with the iPhone X, Apple released their new A12 Bionic CPU—the first 7-nanometer mobile processor. For users, that means a 15 percent faster processing speed while simultaneously being 50 percent more efficient than the previous processor model.

Battery Life– By providing faster processing speeds with more efficiency, the new A12 Bionic CPU is doing its part to improve battery life. Improvements to the battery itself give newer iPhone models the ability to provide nine to 10 hours of continuous usage time, which is great for travelers and people who are constantly on the go.

Warranty– Apple provides a one-year warranty on iPhone repairs and they make insurance through AppleCare+ available for purchase. If something goes wrong with your phone while it is under warranty or insured through AppleCare+, it can save you hundreds of dollars on repairs.

Cons:

Memory: With an iPhone, you have to live with the memory you purchase when you buy your phone. There is no way to increase your phone’s memory after that, although you can move photos and music to other devices that will clear space on your phone for you.

Fragility: iPhones are prone to bending if you keep them in your back pocket, especially if you sit. Having a protective case adds some strength, but you should still be careful about applying too much pressure to the screen or body of the phone, and once the case is warped, even Apple phone repair can’t do much for you.

Damage:: No matter how careful you are, if you drop your phone, it is possible to break the screen. Areas where you plug in your lightning cable and earphones can also be damaged if they snag on something. iPhone repair on a phone that is out of warranty and not covered by AppleCare+ insurance can be costly.
