So, the iPhone 6… it bends… you put it in your pocket for a moment, tie a shoelace, or pick something off the ground, and then suddenly your phone is bent… this is Apple came out with this year. Sales? Not very good. I know no-one with an iPhone 6. Why? Because it is shit…
Anyway, whilst technology is advancing at an alarming rate, I can’t help but wonder… will products become more and more fragile? I mean, my phone currently is a replacement for my Samsung Galaxy S3. It is the Samsung Galaxy Y, and it is a cheap model… well it was still £60, but it is crap (just saying – don’t get it. It closes messages and turns itself off and has terrible RAM) however, I have dropped that phone on the floor countless times. It smashes open, and the battery and everything flies out, but the screen hasn’t cracked, the phone still works as good (as bad) as it did on day one. My friend, however, had an iPhone 4 (i think) and the screen cracked, and bits came off of it when it was dropped once.
If phones are becoming more and more fragile as time goes on, but the prices keep being bumped up, honestly, I think it will have a negative effect. I mean, people will always buy them, because they are fooled by all the marketing ploys, however one day, one man will stand up and say no, then others will follow. If people actually stop buying it, maybe then apple, and other companies will go back to the drawing board and start really advancing there phones, rather then selling the same phone with minor upgrades every year.
I feel this is the same with the new generation of consoles. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are basically the old consoles with slightly upgraded graphics. Look at the PC, it is still far superior to both consoles. People expected a PC-like console when they purchased this new generation. What they got, they were disappointed with. This generation has had terrible sales. Most people (like myself) literally don’t care about them anymore. In fact, I for one, have stopped playing games really. The industry is terrible. Full of scams, and marketing ploys. All run by people trying to get money.
Anyway, thank you all for reading. Like, and follow for more of my blogs!
