Quaide Swink, 21 Sep 2017I hate that this phone won't play 1080p video, that is kind of a pass for me, i want an iphone... moreYes, me too.
In fact, it is very disappointed that it don't have a 4.7" for X version.
If you only look at the specs without knowing that it's an Apple, you would think it's a budget phone. For example the Moto E4 US$129 iPhone 8 US$699. Display 720p V 750p.
Battery 2,800mAh V 1821mAh. Both have IP67 rating and 2GB RAM, Moto E4 has a larger display, and of course the Moto E4 has a 3.5mm head jack. The most impressive statistic here is that the Apple costs more than 5 times the Moto E4!!!!!!!

Quaide Swink, 21 Sep 2017I hate that this phone won't play 1080p video, that is kind of a pass for me, i want an iphone... moreIt plays 1080p, I just looked on YouTube. It even plays its recorded 4K@60fps, and it still looks better then 1080p@60fps because of the higher bit rae
AS-, 22 Sep 2017I have used both android and iphones, and i have to admit that iPhone is iPhone. There is no w... moreHow about iPhone 6s? It costs Â€ 400 and is still faster than most android flagships released in 2017.
NoahS, 22 Sep 2017I have my $150 android with a 5.5" screen and 12mp camera. I am not paying a mortgage payment ... moreThe screen size has nothing to say about a phone. Your cheap $ 150 screen is probably one of the cheapest ones available, as well as the Mediatek MT6750 or whatever tiny processor it got inside. I'm sure your 12MP cam has no optical image stabilization, f/1.7 aperture, optimized ISP and image processing, 4K@60fps, slow motion, quad LED true Tone Flash, ...
Apple is saving both your face information as well as your fingerprint on a dedicated, encoded security enclave that even Apple can't decode because it uses a random algorithm that nobody has access to.
So I buy what works for me, I buy iPhones. My Â€ 280 Xperia M4 Aqua had dozens of problems and slowdowns after 1 year so that I had to switch back to my iPhone 5 (which was only worth Â€ 120). They pay out in the long term, but android people will never know because they buy a new phone every year and convince themselves to have bought a bargain by reading the spec sheet and saying a manner like "my phone has 8 cores, it is faster than $ 700 iPhone 8, my phone has 16MP, it makes better pictures than $ 700 iPhone 8, my phone has 1080p screen, it is sharper then $ 700 iPhone 8, my phone has 4GB RAM, it is... wait, what is RAM for? Oh I don't care. My phone has 4GB RAM, it is better than $ 700 iPhone 8. My phone has headphone jack, it is more functional then $ 700 iPhone 8. My phone has 2% smaller bezels, it is prettier then $ 700 iPhone 8"
And you know that I just simulated a non-expert who just reads Infos without knowing what they actually mean or what is more important about specs and what is less important.
I have used both android and iphones, and i have to admit that iPhone is iPhone. There is no way android can beat iPhone when it comes to performance and build quality, and that's what i believe people pay for. All android phones are cheap looking handsets.
On the other hand, android phones is lot more flexible than iPhone. you can customize, install third party apps, and so on, and that's what is wonderful about android phones. like it!
If you have ENOUGH money, you will buy iPhone. I don't have enough, so i buy android.

Apple is a product, which uses the resource to optimal than android. Andriod is an open source. So, it has its advantage.
I have my $150 android with a 5.5" screen and 12mp camera. I am not paying a mortgage payment for a brand. Everyone's crazy about "apple" and is like 'gotta have it gotta have it.' Save your money and buy what works for you. The face feature also seems to be an invasion of privacy as Apple stores your face data as well as your fingerprint. So yeah. Good luck!
Anyone who wants a new iPhone should skip this and get the X, it's going to be better in every way for only $200 and your even getting much better screen resolution similar to other flagships finally
Won , 21 Sep 2017It really boils down to users preference. I've been using Samsung and Apple for quite sometime... moreI hate that this phone won't play 1080p video, that is kind of a pass for me, i want an iphone that i can use with one hand, and has a high resolution.
Doesn't anyone mind the exhorbatant price? I do. I'm not upper class. Lost that status when forced to go on disability.
So if Apple can cater to Upper Class and Biz executives, and sell enough to keep their stats up, more power to them.
If your Lower Class, like moi, it's a fair assessment to say Apple iPhone is WAY out of range.
For that matter, iPhone 7 was already a tough decision: new refrigerator or iPhone 7? Personally, I would like Apple to go red for painting "us" into a corner. Time will tell.

I've been using Samsung and Apple for quite sometime switch from one to the other. Even with these two most preferred brands still has their issue, I mean almost all phone have their issues. It really boils down to users tolerance with the phone they want/bought
