The new iPhone 13 were introduced last week by Apple. Four new attractive devices, especially for those who want to buy their first iPhone or change the old one.
If you’re an iPhone user and you’re used to it, it won’t be a problem to switch to one of the new models. But if you are currently an Android user and are thinking of switching, I leave you three reasons why you shouldn’t.
1. Lack of USB-C port for charging
The USB-C port has already become the smartphone industry standard. Practically all equipment we find on the market already has this universal charging port. But if you buy an iPhone, you’ll have to carry a Lightning cable (owner of Apple) in the back.
2. Slow loading
If you have a relatively recent Android smartphone, note that the loading speed has evolved a lot in recent times. To give you an idea, Xiaomi has just launched the 11T, a smartphone that charges up to 120W in just 17 minutes with a 5000mAh battery.
Even though this is still a drop in the ocean, there are already many devices with a 50W or 65W charging speed. But if you buy an iPhone 13 Pro Max, it only charges a maximum of 20W.
3. Fingerprint sensor
FaceID is one of the safest ways to unlock a device. But the fact that Apple only gives this option has meant that, in the last year and a half, users have often had to take off the mask to unlock their iPhone, or enter the code over and over again.
Something we have on any Android smartphone is fingerprint unlocking on the screen or the on/off button. And considering that Apple applied this technology to that same button on the iPad Air and iPad mini, it’s not clear why it didn’t do it on the iPhone. It would be a great addition to FaceID.
These are just three reasons not to buy the new iPhone 13, written by an iPhone 12 user. They reflect my opinion, bearing in mind that I regularly use iOS but also Android.
Others could be on this list, like the outdated notch. Or even the fact that on the iPhone there are no gestures from the side to go back more easily from an app. At least the refresh rate up to 120Hz is already a reality on the new iPhone 13 Pro, and in this article you can read 3 reasons to buy the new models.
