Apple’s iPhone is one of the most renowned smartphones around the world. Although its market is not as big in the rest of the world as it is in the US, it is still the brand that everyone knows about globally. There is no doubt that iPhones have remained the best smartphones of the industry for quite some time. However, times changed and Android phones stepped their game. Despite great competition iPhone still remains a great choice for anyone looking for a solid and premium smartphone. However, just like anything else in the world, this phone has its good and bad sides. Let’s review them before the planned iPhone 7 hits the market:
The Good Sides
The most amazing and loved thing about iPhone is its premium build quality. Even if you look at the latest iPhone 6S and the 6 SE edition, you will be compelled to say that their build qualities are among the best. There were some issues with iPhone 6’s build quality but iPhone 6S came with the fixes and better aluminum. Second best thing about iPhones is how they are optimized. IPhone 6S with its dual core processor still beats Samsung Galaxy S7 with its 8-core processor when it comes to single core performance.
Among other most loved things about iPhone there is its camera. While Android phones have taken the lead in recent years, when it comes to consistently good shots, iPhone’s camera takes the lead. Its pictures are consistently good and the colors are a true representation of the real colors. Screen is another thing where iPhone excels – more specifically when you talk about screen brightness. 3D touch was a new innovative feature that came with iPhone 6S and this is a feature that is only exclusive to iPhones and no other phones on the market.
People also buy iPhones because they love the fact that they can sell their phones at a good price even after a couple of years. Ecosystem and operating system are two other things that won’t let iPhone users switch to any other phone. Something that Apple has been doing perfectly since the beginning of smartphones is putting in a messaging application. Their messaging application is still the most loved application among smartphone users. Last but not least, Apple has just announced its iOS 10 less than a month ago and this new operating system is coming with some amazing new features.
The Bad Sides
As mentioned above, iPhones are great for taking consistent shots but if you talk about clarity and quality, iPhone has been left far behind by smartphones from LG and Samsung. Secondly, LG has beaten iPhone in sound quality of its speakers. Samsung has taken the lead when it comes to waterproofing its phones and providing that unique “edge” feature on its Galaxy S edge series. Android phones have better specifications in terms of processor and RAM. They are better at multitasking. The screen brightness on Samsung phones is unbeatable by any phone on the market and iPhone is no exception.
Among these things there are several iPhone issues that you will be dealing with as the time passes. One of the common iPhone faults is the overheating of the home button. This is one of the common faults and one that you can’t get rid of. In addition to that, iPhone’s screen would often freeze while using applications. iPhone is disabled error too is one of the most common issues that iPhone users face, although this one was pretty much addressed in the latest models. Another big issue that has come with the 3D touch technology is unresponsiveness of the screen. When this happens, prepare yourself to spend some money on getting this issue fixed by some professional repairer if you are not under warranty.
Another hardware issue that demands you take your phone to a shop for repair is the clicking and distorted sound from the speakers. Sometimes the problem will start without you knowing about it. On most occasions, this is a result of water getting into the phone. While you can try to reset your phone, chances are you will have to have your phone repaired. Another issue that has come with iPhone 6S is that its camera will start acting up as a result of overheating. Your phone will get hot for no reason and it will become so hot that your camera starts to malfunction.
