Two weeks ago I questioned myself which smartphone to buy, Google Pixel 4 or Iphone 11. I love my Google Nexus 6, it survived 4 years of daily abuse with battery replaced a few month ago and even with the new battery I can barely make it through the day. Shortly I considered Google Pixel 3 but after all blue metallic Nexus 6 the Google Pixel 3 felt in the hand cheap and plasticky. As soon as Google Pixel 4 has been announced the first reviews rolled in with the same bottom line – no matter how good Pixel 4 at night photo shooting, the battery life is miserly. Why, Google, why? I really tried hard to love your streamlined no-bloatware creations but should I be punished for my customer loyalty by acute battery anxiety, no, never again. So, the question which smartphone to buy has evolved into question which iPhone model is right for me.
After spending countless hours at the Apple Store on Union Square, San Francisco, among other lost souls, I finally went after iPhone 8 Plus 128 GB, making up my mind that the latest bells and whistles do not justify spending twice more than $600 for iPhone 8 Plus 128 GB.
