With the announcement of the iPhone 6s, Jimmy Kimmel wanted to see what people would think if they were given the original iPhone, released in 2007, and told it was Apple's latest phone.
As an experiment, Kimmel sent an interviewer to give people on Hollywood Boulevard the original iPhone and ask them their thoughts on what they were told was Apple's latest device.
As Kimmel explains: “We’re now programmed to feel like if we don’t get the new one we’re missing out on something.”
When asked what their thoughts were, many seemed impressed with the size of the phone.
One woman said: “I love the size, it’s not too big, it just fits so perfectly in the palm of my hand. Easy to slip into my handbag as well. Easy to find.”
Another woman described the phone as “nice and light. Small. Fits in the palm of my hand, quite nifty, I like it.”
While the original iPhone has a 3.5 inch screen, the iPhone 6s is larger at 4.7 inch screen and the 6s Plus is even bigger with a 5.5 inch screen.
Others were impressed with how quickly the phone worked: “It’s really cool. I like how fast the processor is moving. It’s not lagging and it’s not holding me up.”
They also praised the obsolete phone's camera and weight, concluding: “Apple has done it again.”
