Iphone X: Buy 579 pounds of bananas instead

Last week Apple announced three new phones, another watch, and Apple tv 4k streaming. The iPhone X (10) came with a lot of backlash from Apple fans, with no home button and consequently no finger print reader. Instead, they have introduced facial recognition, which failed during the keynote. Thankfully, you can still use the old faithful passcode to unlock your phone.

Apple finally integrated wireless charging into all three of their phones, but it wouldn’t be Apple if they didn’t make up their own name for it, “Air power” which comes in two different sizes, one will only fit your phone, and one can charge your phone, your apple watch, and your air pods.

Apple has decided to add glass to the back of the phones, so that you are twice as likely to break your phone and spend more money on Apple care!

iPhone X pre-orders will start Oct. 27. However, the iPhone 8 is currently available for pre-ordering. The flagship phone usually takes longer than the secondary phone, but the extra time probably allows Apple to fix that awful facial recognition, and then claim that it’s better than fingerprint scanning.

Also, anyone who knows what the Essential Phone is knows that the iPhone X pretty much blatantly copied the bezel design, but added some useless stuff.

Plus, now you have to be a ‘gesture’ ninja just to perform simple tasks. Why not insert an artificial home button? That would make too much sense for Tim Cook’s taste.

On top of all this, the phone is $999. You can almost buy a low end MacBook for that price.

So included in this article is a list of things you could spend your hard earned money dollars on instead:

  • A Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+
  • Feed your retirement fund
  • An entry level DSLR camera
  • 2000 Jack in the Box tacos
  • A phone with a headphone jack and a fingerprint scanner
  • 579.42 pounds of bananas
  • 999 items from The Dollar Tree
