    Honestly the fact that technology has come this far in just 8 years is astounding

    • Jonathan
      Jonathan 19 days ago

      I'd say innovation for regular smartphones have slowed down these last 2 years. The actual innovation is happening with foldables. And no Apple is still putting effort into making their phones. I mean Apple silicon is still generations ahead of competition in terms of performance and efficiency. I prefer Android, but Apple supporting their phones for 7 years is very commendable

    • Kelpup
      Kelpup 29 days ago

      @TOMÁS MARTÍNEZ most of these people are writing your comment off as simply hating Apple but I see why you are saying that the innovation has been poor. I do think however that even with limited architectural changes to the iPhone that there has been constant innovation in relation to technological advancement as well as making it affordable for Apple to sell in the quantity it does. In the past 8 years we got AirPods, OLED displays at 120hz, fully touch display (no home button), huge improvements to battery life, 5G connectivity, and a straight up better experience with our phones. For less than a decade that’s a lot of improvement, especially if you think about how for seemingly thousands of years there was very little in the way of technological improvement then 8 years is really impressive.

      What else are you expecting from a phone?
      Cars have improved a lot in the last century but they're still cars.
      Their essence doesn't need to change for their evolution to be impressive.

    • Strutting_strat
      Strutting_strat Month ago +3

      Not that impressive imo. Basically phones have just gotten bigger (better screens, battery) and better cameras. The jump to the 6 was cool (thin), then to the 10, design wise, but that's mostly it.

    It's incredible that Marques had the foresight to do B-roll, proper lighting, write a script, and so on. really just leagues above his contemporaries and still optimizing his content in the future, now, by doing things like 18:9 videos. gem of a video

    Something I am realizing is that iphones may not be very customizable with the way the software looks.However the company is very good at keeping their phones easy to customize with cases and accessories. I think Iphone has the most options of cases in the market just from a consumers point of view... Ive owned the iphone 6 and 7 and that's it. So since then I've been noticing how little options I have to dress my phone in. I appreciate the slick and relaxing look of the minimalistic style the iphone has, but I like to switch it up :)

    I remember getting my first ever touchscreen phone being the iphone 5s in 2018 and I was so hyped even though it was basically obsolete with the release of iphone 10. Now im older and has a job, I can afford the iphone 13, its hard to comprehend how apple has improved in technology through the years, especially with these crazy fast processors like the M1 and A lineups.

      iPhone 8 Plus has a 5.5 inch screen vs the 14 Pro Max at 6.7 inch, yet physically they’re almost the exact same height and exactly the same width.

    This phone got its last software update on AUGUST 31, 2022. That's updates over NINE YEARS after the phone's release, nearly SEVEN years after nearly all 2013 phones lost software support. Sure, this phone may have just been B-tier according to this video. But in retrospect, this phone was revolutionary. Touch ID. The first 64-bit chip. The most refined small design. The brand-new software.

      @exaggerated swagger Apple classified themselves as Luxury brand making a phone less than $500 will defeat the purpose. In case you don’t know iPhones are a luxury in other countries outside the US, whether you like it or not. There are countries where someone’s full month income won’t even afford an iPhone.
