I thought I had to share the fact that I have the iPhone 8 in the pocket! Every two year, I buy myself a new phone. I’m an apple addict to be honest. I wished I could buy a new Iphone every year, but that’s a bit too expensive in my opinion.
iPhone 8 or iPhone X
This time, it wasn’t so easy for me to decide which new iPhone I wanted. I saw the iPhone 8 on mobiel.nl but I know there will be two new iPhones this autumn… The iPhone 8 and the iPhone X (ten). I’ve been comparing them a bit, but there were two reasons why I chose the iPhone 8.
1. The iPhone 8 was released earlier and I didn’t want to wait any longer for a new phone.
2. The iPhone X is way more expensive than the iPhone 8. I could buy a (cheap) car for that amount of money haha! Because of that I live in Sweden, the phone is even more expensive than the rest of Europe.
The final decision to buy the iPhone 8 was made and now I had to choose which colour iPhone I wanted. I always have the white version. This time the white version has a golden (looks more pink to me…) backside. The black version has a silver backside of the phone. I chose to stick with the fresh white colour and the pinkish gold looks just fine!
The glass of the new iPhone 8 is much stronger this time. The whole phone is made of this hard glass, front- and backside of the phone. With the little one here, it’s a safer feeling to have a phone that breaks less easy. I always break the glass of the screen of my iPhones.
I had however no plans to give our son my new phone in hands, but once he starts crawling or walking, it could be a risk.
With all the photo’s and video’s I’m taking from him, I chose the 64GB version again. And I have everything backed-up automatically on my iCloud. Whenever I have Wifi, my phone backs everything up automatically. This is really important when you don’t want to loose photo’s of a newborn or other important things on your phone. I’ve heard stories about losing important files from the phone because it was stolen for example.
Always do the software update right away, since the iPhone can get a bit ‘cranky’ (read: doesn’t work proper) when you forget to do the updates. I always remind my mom to do this haha, she forgets it otherwise.
I am super happy with my new phone, pretty strange actually, how I can hardly live without that thing! I use it everyday, all day long. However, when I’m having quality time with my family or friends, I know how to switch it off too 😉
Which phone do you have?
Would you rather buy the iPhone 8, X or no iPhone at all?
