Found my first iPhone at my parents house. Crazy how much design has changed/progressed in 10 years.
Nice! Thanks for sharing. The X is definitely a radical departure from the original.
Looks like original melted and spread out thinner and bleached in the sunlight.
The same basic design. Of coarse with improvements in technology there are differences but it's hardly a radical change. Still iOS, a touch screen, camera, and apps. The original iPhone was THE radical change!!!
Agreed. The phones are 90% the same in terms of design. The way we fundamentally interact with our phones are literally the same. No true radical innovation in last 10 years. The original iPhone was the biggest seismic innovation in tech history. Apple will be hard pressed to surpass that again with the iPhone line. Maybe another product will come along, but probably touch screen phones r here to stay forever
I remember what got me to buy the first iPhone a few days after launch, being able to scroll through contacts and touch the number I wanted to call. The phone that it replaced was such a pain to enter and use contacts.
Definitely a throwback homage from the original. Silver X ftw!
I'm old school, so I prefer the original design better even if it is considered fat by today's standards. It was actually as thin as the Motorola RAZR. Anything bigger than 8-9 mm is considered chubby now.
That angle you took it looks good with the silver X because of the og's edges too. They both shine nicely. My SE looks better next to the space gray X because black matches well with any color.
I remember putting my space gray side-by-side with both and just ended up liking the space gray X. Quite an upset considering silver was winning by a huge margin.
Both X will scratch and show fingerprints but the silver X will be the worse offender while space gray will be worse with fingerprints. The sg X will hide scratches better under most indoor lighting. But OLED and all black just makes everything look seamless.
Favorite iPhone designs
I like metal rears. I lost my love for the 4 series when I used to think the iPhone 4 was the most beautiful iPhone ever. The 5 series refined it and perfected the 4 series. From underclassmen to senior year with the 5s.
It's definitely interesting to see all the changes after 10 years, but interestingly enough, Apple somehow still has retained similar features that resemble the first generation iPhone. Almost traditional looking in some ways, with the iPhone X being futuristic.
You cursed brat! Look what you've done! I'm melting! melting! Oh, what a world! What a world! Who would have thought a good little girl like you could destroy my beautiful wickedness? Oooooh, look out! I'm going! Oooooh! Ooooooh!
Started from the bottom now we here!
Looks the same to me. This tells you exactly how well designed the original was. I doubt Apple will ever go away from the same basic design, it's just classic.
I had my old first gen iphone around someplace it's funny I looked how tiny the screen was and thinking wow we went crazy over this.
OP, thanks for sharing!! Love the homage to the OG in the Silver X!!
I still use my 3G a few times a week, Some of the old 32bit Applications are more fun on classic, non Retina hardware.
While the hardware has changed, it is somewhat funny how little Springboard (the launcher) has, when you look it at face value. Digging deeper (3D Touch, contextual menus, folders, etc) it has improved .
I wouldn't have it any other way. Why wouldn't I want my iPhone to be running iOS?
