The thing is my boyfriend wants an iPhone and he wants it badly. He said he’d sell his ass for the iPhone 4S. He said maybe he should start gambling to get enough money for it(there’s no contract for iphones so the 4S one is at about $1200). I say it’s pure folly and absolute nonsense. I mean it’s not that great, is it? Or am I the freak?
Ok ok… Let me explain myself: I don’t like iphones. I just don’t. And I don’t get why people do.
Steve Jobs was genius for sure but iPhones are not the only amazing smartphones in the world. I mean the Samsung Galaxy SII is pretty cool too. And I know what I’m talking about: my sister and one of my best friends both have one; yep it’s pretty cool. Maybe it’s a question of design but I think the SGSII is way more elegant and I find the android-guy really cute too. Iphones are not cute: they’re just professional. Professional and boring. No offence meant.
Yeah and maybe Siri freaks me out too. Seriously I’ve never tried her personally but what I’ve read and seen doesn’t really turn me on…at all!
And these could be exactly the reasons why I don’t want my boyfriend to get an iPhone 4S…
I don’t wanna be killed by a jealous phone 😦
Nor get dumped because he fell for her lovely, nearly-electronic voice 😥
Yeah I know I’m exagerating and burying myself in my delirium 😛
But seriously while I’ve been writing the post I wondered why it is that I don’t like iPhones that much. I racked my brain and found the anwser in my memories: The 1st iPhone had been released in Mauritius and I badly wanted one. I needed one! Just because it was new and amazing and cool and because I like stuff like that. I beg my parents on my knees but they never accepted.
It could have ended that way but no. My grandpa went to a phone exhibition- he like doing stuff like that and pretend he’s really good with electronics but he had to call me every time he needed to unlock his phone ‘coz he didn’t know how to- and came back with an iPhone. For him. Him!!!! From that moment iPhones didn’t mean anything for me. They’re just phones. Grandpas’ phones.
Coming back to anyone who badly wants the iPhone 4S but still can’t afford it, well it’s not worth it. Wait for the iPhone 5. I mean it’ll be slimmer and will probably have 4G so…take your troubles patiently since patience is a virtue 😉
