Ten years ago, the iPhone was a god-like existence. Jobs’ apple really changed the way people lived, and it also changed the right posture for our flirtatious girls. When the first iPhone was released in 2007, I was electrocuted and decided to buy an iPhone in the United States.

At that time, most of the small partners around were using Nokia, HTC (Dopoda), Motorola, Soai and other brands, domestic mobile phones Changhong, Bird and Konka are advertising everywhere, 64 and Xuanjia call marquee is the standard configuration of many domestic mobile phones. Although the configuration is not high, the resources are less, the software is simple, but do not worry about the running speed, do not need to charge every day, the differentiated appearance is an important choice for the purchase of the machine, and blind typing is the main criterion for judging old drivers at that time.
Unpacking ten years late
How did it feel to use your iPhone for the first time? Can’t change the battery “against humanity”
If you want to talk about the feeling of using the iPhone for the first time, it must be surprise and some regret. For the first iPhone, his opponent was undoubtedly the mainstream Nokia, HTC, Motorola at that time, they had a straight board, a clamshell, a 2.5-inch large screen, 64 polyphonic ringtones, 32MB running memory, 128MB large body storage space, 300,000 pixel HD camera, and rich Java game software resources.

So what about the iPhone configuration from the same period? ARM11 processor, 128MB running memory, minimum 8GB storage space, 3.5-inch ten-point touch, 320×480 pixel TFT full-color screen, metal body, straight board, slightly thinner than motoV3, which is twice the thickness of the current iPhone X. It is equipped with a 2-megapixel camera. iOS 1.x operating system. In terms of visual impact, the iPhone is absolutely unsatisfactory.

In addition to amazing, there are also a lot of regrets and helplessness, the first generation of products from the hardware point of view, can not replace the battery, which was unreasonable at the time, when the mobile phone standby for a week is very normal, and the iPhone can only standby for three days, use one day, and the battery can not be replaced, in the era of charging treasure is not popular, it is common to go out to use and encounter no power.

The back is a metal shell that is easy to wear
Another point is that the SIM card did not support Chinese mainland numbers at that time, and it needed to be affixed or cracked to use, which also brought a lot of trouble to ordinary users, and of course, it also allowed merchants to see the opportunity to make money. Some quick JS made a lot of money, and the 91 mobile assistant we are familiar with also began to make efforts at that time.
Is iOS easy to use? Really not as good as Saipan
It is an indisputable fact that domestic mobile phones have fully surpassed the iPhone in hardware configuration, and the reason to buy an iPhone is the smooth iOS system and high-quality APP, but in that era, iOS was not as good as Symbian.
It’s still quite thick iPhone
Is this icon familiar with nostalgia
The first generation of iPhones used iOS 1.x, and the maximum upgrade to 3.x was the limit, that is, the system before the iPhone 4 in 2010. At that time, iOS, there was no copy and paste, no multitasking (press the HOME button to exit), QQ could not run in the background to receive messages, and did not support MMS.

There is no APP Store, no rich software, and the download depends on the 91 mobile assistant. The author remembers that the most fun game at that time was just a balance ball, and fighting landlords was a luxury item later.
Humble App Store
At that time, the headphone hole was still on it
The system volume is too low, and seriously, the first generation iPhone handset and external playback sound are too small. Especially the sound played outside, sometimes it is not heard outdoors. Sometimes when you go out to dinner, you want to install an X with your iPhone, no one can hear the music outside, and after a while, the battery runs out, which is called an embarrassment. Others, playing games, listening to music, chatting about QQ, after a while, silently took out a battery and revived it with blood on the spot.
The camera is not prominent
A camera plus MP4 is just a little video to watch no scene
The iPhone was revolutionary, and for good reason, while the first generation was boring, there were still some things that became cornerstones of the great changes that followed.
The first generation comes with a charging base
This configuration is already against the sky
At that time, Wi-Fi already had a certain penetration rate, and many people installed wireless routers in their homes. However, mobile phones, on the one hand, due to policy restrictions (at that time, BNM mobile phones were not allowed to install Wi-Fi modules), on the other hand, feature phones did not have Wi-Fi, so that most people could only use the castrated version of WAP through 20MB of traffic per month on the mobile Monternet. Only a few smart phones such as parallel goods and HTC have Wi-Fi, which is a high-end machine of more than 4,000 yuan.
At that time, Wi-Fi was an artifact
The full version of the Safari browser, which is one of the real revolutionaries, can open the computer version of the web page on the browser via Wi-Fi, and view details through multi-touch flexible zoom size, this impact is very shocking.
Fast Internet speed, especially cool
No MMS can only be sent via SMS
Unfortunately, Apple never supported Flash on mobile phones, and at that time it was a pity that some online videos could not be played, but it turned out that Apple was right, and now Flash has been gradually replaced by H5.
The original iPhone was compared with the mainstream mobile phone moto V3i at that time
The iPhone opened up a new level of mobile phone photography. The author remembers that before using the iPhone, I used a moto V3i mobile phone, and the following pictures are a photo comparison of moto V3i and the original iPhone. According to the quality of Apple’s shooting, it was undoubtedly standing on a lightning rod on the top of Mount Everest at that time.

How do you compare to the iPhone X?
iPhone X vs. the original iPhone
The above compares the front and back sides of the iPhone X and the first generation of the iPhone. The first generation is twice as thick as the X, and graininess can still be seen on a closer look at the screen resolution. In terms of experience, X is definitely not convinced by the first generation, the only thing that has not changed is the sensitivity of the touch screen.
Turn off the phone and go home for the weekend
The above is the author’s feeling when using the iPhone ten years ago. Apple has changed much more than that in a decade, and there is so much to add. Because it has been off work, the author will not write, the opportunity behind is left to everyone, if you also used the early products of the iPhone back then, welcome to leave a message to share your feelings.
