I went to Akihabara today and I saw the iPhone 13 pro.
It seems quite nice. Of course it’s quite expensive, so I’m thinking about it. Apple Japan offers 24 monthly payments with 0% interest, so there doesn’t seem to be an advantage in paying for it upfront. Except for the fact course that I would use gift cards.
The camera is really quite nice. Also the screen is a bit larger than the iPhone X screen. So is the body. It’s the most noticeable side-by-side, but it’s definitely larger. The screen is also nicer and brighter.
One downside is that it weighs 30 g more than the iPhone X.
I also looked at the iPhone 13 pro max, which is just a little more expensive. I was amazed that it actually fits in my shirt pocket, but it is considerably larger and heavier.
At night, when I’m laying in bed like I am now, I tend to hold the iPhone just in my left hand near my head. So the size and weight is a consideration.
One thing I didn’t really care for was Apple’s decision to return to flat edges. Apparently it’s a thing and forums are filled with people for and against that. Most people seem to like it. I don’t.
I’m surprised that design has so many fans.
To be honest, I couldn’t stop thinking about it coming back from Akihabara, and found it depressing and maybe thinking of holding on to my X because of that.
But I suppose you can get cases with rounded edges, right?
Or I may just be practical and continue using my iPhone X.
