The Flops of the Keynote
The website 01net.com has listed the “tops”, but also the “flops” of the Keynote of Appel which took place Tuesday. Among these: the absence of surprise at the event. It was the first time that so many elements had been unveiled before. The site also evokes a failure in the first demo of Face ID, but especially the almost useless presentation of the iPhone 8 during which “everyone […] was watching his watch. More generally, it is the actual lack of novelty for this product that is criticized. Finally, another negative point denounced by 01net.com, the low advanced side photo. The site estimates that for the price of the iPhone X, switching from an opening of F / 2.8 to F / 2.4 is a little light.Apple drops the price of the iPhone 7
With the release of the new iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus, the US company can afford to sell its older models at attractive prices than before. So the iPhone 7 is now available from 639 euros, the iPhone 7 Plus from 779 euros. Other good news for Apple fans not having the means or the desire to spend too much to afford a smartphone: the iPhone SE is on sale from 419 euros. Finally, the iPhone 6S sells from 529 euros, the iPhone 6S Plus from 639 euros.
The iPhone X defects pointed by the specialized press
Apple has shown itself so dithyrambic with its new iPhone X that it seems to have only qualities. This is of course not the case. Most specialized media question its price, higher than a French SMIC. The specialized site frandroid.com points to other real limits to the iPhone X, yet presented as the Rolls Royce smartphones. First, it should be noted that the screen is not really “edge to edge”, since the frontal sensor is inserted on a small material outgrowth. It is annoying, since the images and videos, as well as the video games will be truncated by the sensor … Other limit: the device offers a RAM of 3GB, while the competition offers devices with 6GB. Finally, the accessories that will be delivered with the iPhone X are quite low-end: no AirPods (but EarPods), no wireless charger, but a simple 5W charger, while many competing smartphones are equipped with chargers from 10 to 20W, much more powerful. ZDNet also wonders about the relevance of having chosen to cover the glass apparatus. “IPhone users are used to cracks on the screen, they will have to rediscover the risk of cracks in the back,” regrets the media.
“Apple’s pricing strategy is crystal clear”
The firm has the apple thus puts on the market the most expensive smartphone ever put on sale. But according to observers specialized, Apple has calculated well, diversifying its offer. Jérôme Colin, associate director at Emerton, interviewed by Les Echos, explains: “Apple’s pricing strategy has been crystal clear for several years. Their entry-level model (the iPhone SE currently) is sold just under 500 dollars and the group increases the price of their premium model in parallel with each new generation, which allows them to maintain an average price between 600 and 700 dollars for 10 years.
iPhones 8 and 8 tested against water and splashes
Dust and water resistance of iPhones 8 and 8 increased, this should interest more than one clumsy. But what does that mean? The brand specifies that the devices have been tested in the laboratory and have obtained “the IP67 protection rating defined by the International Electronic Com- mission Commission (IEC) standard 60529. Apple nevertheless states that this resistor may be attenuated over time “as part of normal wear and tear.” And reminds one golden rule: do not recharge a damp iPhone.
