Hey everyone, we're almost there! This is the final part of the Chinese news article we've been going through for the past couple of posts. For some of you this may be your first time reading an actual Chinese news article from start to finish so congratulations! It wasn't as intimidating as it looked am I right?
Granted, I know it wasn't the easiest of reads, but as I mentioned in an earlier post, reading a real life news articles such as this will really help you learn the right way Chinese people write (and talk) in their day-to-day life.
For those of you who enjoyed this post I will try to find some more like it in the future - don't worry I will try to find shorter ones this time 🙂
Now by now you have seen the various reviews cited from different sources and different experts. Each expert has given his or her opinions/take on the iPhone 6s. Today's part of the article finally wraps it all up and brings us back to the main point of the article which can be seen in the title of the article which is "买不买 iPhone6s?" in other words "should you buy the iPhone 6s?" Here the author comes to a conclusion, and once again cites several of the sources we have seen so far in the previous posts.
Okay let's get started but right before that here's my deconstruction of the key vocabulary. Happy reading!
亮点(liàng diǎn) - highlight
摄像(shè xiàng) - camera shooting
处理器(chú lǐ qì) - processor (as in the computer chip)
坚硬(jiān yìng) - solid
直观(zhí guān) - obvious
觊觎(jì yú) - to long for, eager to get. As in, to covet the new iPhone 6s.
大开眼界(dà kāi yǎn jiè) - let you open your eyesight and see more things
叛变(pàn biàn) - betray or defect
阵营(zhèn yíng) - camp. But not in the sense of going out on a camping trip with campfire, instead in the sense of groups of people. So in the article it means the Apple Camp vs the Android Camp. It's kind of like how you might say in English Team Apple or Team Android.
愉悦(yú yuè) - joyful, cheerful
推荐(tuī jiàn) - recommend or recommendation
动机(dòng jī) - motivation. I really like this word in Chinese. It literally means "moving + machine" and is the same word that can also mean a motor or locomotive. But Chinese people also use this to describe human motivation and when you think of it it's really an apt description because motivation is the driving force that moves humans.
整合(zhěng hé) - integrate
从上面的体验可以看出，各家媒体最看重的iPhone 6s和plus亮点就是3D Touch，Live Photos以及4K摄像了，其它处理器升级，机身更坚硬，都很难直观地感受出来。那么——
The Verge以及纽约时报的观点也差不多，如果你用的iPhone 6之前的机，那可以考虑直接上个iPhone 6S Plus，因为它是“最好的手机”，而且都两年多了，苹果的进步一定会让你“大开眼界”的。
TC与Mashable的观点则有所不同，它们都建议即使是iPhone 6用户，也可以考虑升级到6s，不过前者推荐的原因是相机，后者则是因为3D Touch功能。
总结来说，iPhone 5s及以前版本的用户应该会有很强的升级动机，不过这种动力来自iPhone 6的大屏与6s的新功能的整合。不过最关键的一点是，如果预算足够，无论现在用的什么，都可以考虑升级，因为iPhone 6s确实可以被称为最优秀的手机。
Is it worth buying?
Wall Street Journal believes that you might not be too eager to buy an iPhone 6s if you already have an iPhone 6, the only thing is you might miss and ask yourself is why don't photos have have animated effect? Whereas, you can consider to get an iPhone 6s if your iPhone is 5s or even older models. Oh and by the way, you have to buy a 64 GB model.
The Verge and New York Times have similar opinions. You can consider to get iPhone 6s Plus straightway if you are still using the model that is older than iPhone 6 because iPhone 6s Plus is “the best phone,” and the improvement Apple has achieved in these two years definitely will surprise you.
[To Android users] Dr Mossberg pointed out that you will not be disappointed by the new iPhone if you want to defect from Android. As for how happy you will be, you need to experience it yourself.
TC and Mashable hold different opinions, they both suggest that even if you're a customer who is already using iPhone 6 you can still consider to upgrade to the 6s. However, the reason why the former (TC) recommended this is because of the camera, whereas 3D Touch is the reason the latter (Mashable) holds.
Overall speaking, the iPhone 5s and users of older models should have stronger motivation to upgrade their phones, but [mainly] this motivation comes from the combination of the big screen that iPhone 6 has to offer and the new functions of 6s. However, most importantly, no matter what model of iPhone you are using, if you have sufficient budget (if budget is no issue), you can consider to upgrade your phone as iPhone 6s indeed can be regarded as the best mobile phone.
