Okay, I know what you are thinking. Beef jerky is not a gadget nor a mobile device and comparing the two is like comparing apples and oranges. Well, aside from the fact that I am writing this with a bag of jerky beside me, I feel it appropriate to do an indirect review of the new iPhone 6. And what better way to do that than to compare it with a bag of dried tasty goodness we all crave for, right?
It’s almost a couple of weeks ago when the new flagship phones from Apple started rolling out of the Apple warehouses to consumers. After their successful launch, the tech giant boasted of having their best release yet, selling more than 10 million of the new phones to their loyal fanbase.
It is not long, however, before early adopters posted complaint after complaint about the new phones. Not including the failed release of their iOS, the web and Social media have been ripe with people finding flaws in the new devices. Found below are three of the top complaints people have about the new iPhone 6 and why, beef jerky is better. Let me put it this way, below are the top 3 things that may annoy you with your new iPhone and why grabbing a bag of jerky may make owning your new device a little bit better.
Iphone bends with just the force of one’s hands
Bend Gate and Pocketing Problems
Every Apple fan and iPhone bashing Android fan have been talking and tweeting and posting about the iPhone 6 (especially the iPhone 6+) bending in their user’s pockets. Because of the large form factor, the phones are more prone to warping forces on them when kept on user’s tight jeans. Aside from these, users are finding them really uncomfortable to put in one’s pockets. Now, women can get away by putting their $849 device in their clutch or purses, but for us men, the only other option is to hold the phone in our hands- at all times. Those who opted to keep their phones in their pants later find their phones bent beyond repair. It is amazing that these phones still work, but this is such a disappointment as the bending ruins the phone’s design which is one major factor why people buy them anyway.
When it comes to your jerky snack, no amount of bending will turn us away from its delicious goodness. Jerky is meant to bend and whether we do it inside our mouths or with our hands to share it with someone, old trusty jerky will always return to its shape without damage. Jerky can also be easily put in your pocket for a fast snack wherever you go. Just put it in an appropriately sized Ziploc bag and you are set. With beef jerky, you do not have to spend $800 to experience its goodness.
Iphone battery improvements through the years.
Dead Before Noon – Battery Drain
Power users will be disappointed to know that the iPhone 6 can drain before lunch time. Though, this may vary from user to user, most users agree that the slight improvement in the battery life is not enough to make a difference from the previous model. With the release of iOS 8, Mac Forums were bombarded with complaints of severe battery drain, with apps draining the phone and requiring multiple charges within the day
If you find your iPhone’s battery dead, you’d be relieved that the jerky in your pocket which you took to the office this morning is still there, tasty as ever. Though, we’ve heard of people finding they have eaten all their jerky before lunch time, it can easily be fixed by a bigger bag or an emergency stash in your desk. Jerky is a delight that you can take everywhere without having the need for a power supply. It is made to last and to be useful, without dependence on signal, power or other accessories.
Iphone Thumb Reach
Multitask No More
I remember Jobs saying that Apple is a design company. I agree as there is no denying that the company was ahead of everybody else when it comes to the design of their hardware. Even if they deny it, a lot of smartphones, tablets and even laptops have followed Apple when it comes to design. Lately, however, it seems like Apple is losing its touch, creating products that are no longer very unique and at times are hard to use. Not counting the failure of iMaps and the misplaced back button on previous iPhones, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are now harder to use with one hand. Unless you have really long fingers using the new phones effectively is just no longer possible without using both hands. Using only one hand, a big area of the screen is just not accessible to your thumb making simple gestures like swiping from the left of the screen to go back across apps difficult if not impossible. Apple, introduced a feature called Reachability which aims to address this issue, but it feels like a band-aid over the bigger problem and actually requires a lot of tapping. I know many women will find themselves forced to use both hands when using the device as it is no longer friendly to smaller hands.
When it comes to enjoying your bag of jerky, one can enjoy it with just one hand while the other is busy texting on your phone or holding a book. Yep, jerky is an will always be a joy to eat. It does not force you to drop everything to enjoy it, you can always eat it while doing your tasks.
The iPhone has proven to be a disappointment for many, but Apple fans are still loyally holding on to the brand, hoping for better days ahead. While waiting, it is good to know that you can always enjoy your favorite beef jerky brand without hassle.
