Those words really made me think, how about you? tweeted by Subrahmanyam KVJ.
With both types of watches, there are pros and cons. A mechanical watch can perform all its functions with no battery, simply by moving your wrist or winding the crown. The Apple Watch offers an vast array of modern functions, much like a smartphone—from sending a text to tracking your daily activity. Useful functions that are not within the realm of mechanical watches, unless you count the chronograph, the pulsometer, etc. You can buy an Apple Watch for as low as $269 for an original Series 1 or up to around $1,499 for the new Ceramic Edition. Mechanical watches can range from a few hundred to hundreds of thousands of dollars… More at Valet.
You can’t really compare the two, but I know which side I am on. The picture says it all.
After 2 weeks the iPhone X it has reached that point where I wonder why the £1,150?
It is actually a good place for it to be because the novelty wears off and work, my kids, my wife, my dreams, writing and the rest of my life continues as before, but with a new phone.
A phone is of course not important in any way in comparison to the real world, but it is also very important because it has integrated itself into so much of what I do.
The iPhone X feels like the iPhone 7, only better. The screen is just so useable for me and the addition of True Tone is a game changer- I will never turn that feature off.
Battery life is, to me, the same as the past few iPhones in that it needs a charge during the day and again overnight. No great shakes, but not groundbreaking either.
The camera is superb, quite superb. I haven’t managed to get the new portrait still feature working properly in any shot yet, but maybe that will have to wait for the Summer.
Overall, however, I am pleased with my purchase and see no reason to change. The novelty may be gone, but the iPhone X remains the best phone I have used to date.
Apologies for the lack of updates recently. This is not likely to change much as I have a few things to deal with which take priority.
