Best smartphone i ever had. Faceid is fast and the screen... omg the screen!!!!! Perfect! Camera is almost real professional!!!
[deleted post]Tell me, which other modern Android (or even Windows) phone in the same price range uses stainless steel?
Only maker I can think of is Vertu, but those phones cost way more. Titanium on the Essential Phone is infamous for scratching issues, alongside other problems like no waterproofing and pre-order customers getting their data leaked.
[deleted post]Not exactly, as I'm sure you know Android and I.O.S are two completely different operating systems. That's the bit people tend to ignore when they get all fanboy on both sides and start claiming their preferred device is the best.
Apple competes against itself really, whereas there are many different manufacturers that use Android as their platform.
Now you could argue that Android users have greater flexibility and choice and I would be right behind you, but just spouting out things like you have done makes no real sense to me and comes across as yet just another one of those fanboy posts I have to trawl through.
A, 07 Dec 2017Thanks pal!Hey, no probs
If you have not done so already it's well worth really taking time out to look at the differences before buying especially considering the price that you are going to be paying.
For example, if you have not done so already it's worth reading some of the smaller print
"Apple claims the X has a 5.8" screen... except it's not what you may imagine this to be. You can see on the official site that the 5.8" measurement is for a rectangular screen while the X has rounded corners. But that's a minor quibble; the bigger issue is that there's a cutout at the top of the screen, which limits the usable area."
"In fact, ignoring the top portion leaves a screen that's just about 18.5:9 in aspect ratio. If you were to show 16:9 content on it - the traditional widescreen format that all TV shows and YouTube videos use - you're left with what is effectively a 4.96" screen. That's obviously bigger than the iPhone 8's but way smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus display."
As I said before, best thing to do is to pop into a shop and try them out side by side if you can.
Anonymous, 07 Dec 2017It's all quite childish really all this "my willy is bigger than your willy" stuff.
The fa... moreAgree... why compare a $1000 phone with $600 phone? And keep have this apple fans ego.
Its like comparing ferrari with bmw. Ferrari is SUPPOSED to be faster and better.
Look at the price tag for god sake!!
And my small toyota is serving the purpose of commuting me around without a problem.
if i buy a Ferrari then its just because I can afford it and I wanted to show off. Not because my toyota fail to commute me..
A, 06 Dec 2017Planning on iphone either 8plus or X. I prefer larger and wider displays. X has a larger displ... moreI should also point out that as regards to the quality of the screens on both the IPhone 8 Plus and the IPhone X there are differences in the type of screen, it's not only the size
I phone X is Super AMOLED as opposed to LED-backlit IPS LCD..... look at the resolution, contrast etc
In short the X has the better screen but it has the notch too, personally I don't like the notch but hey it's not about me. ..

Personally I like the latest trend of 19.5:9 ratio (X) and the 18.5:9 (e.g Galaxy S8) but it comes at a price e.g Videos are stretched or to see the videos as intended you will have to put up with black bars either side of the video you are watching and in doing so you don't make use of the full screen. Also you may want to take the 'notch' into consideration too.
The IPhone 8 plus offers the more traditional 16:9 ratio, but its all about preference and I would advise that you check the phones out in person if the screen is the big deal breaker for you.
Everyone has an opinion but there is only one opinion that matters and that is yours.
Anonymous, 06 Dec 2017Still less bezel on a Samsung S8 even after Apple x attempt.I didn't realise that there was a competition.
Anonymous, 06 Dec 2017explain why iphones keep destroying their phones in speed tests then.It's all quite childish really all this "my willy is bigger than your willy" stuff.
The fact is whether you choose a top brand android flagship or the latest IPhone you will have a great user experience. The truth is also that the average user of whatever you decide to use, whether it be Apple or Android will not notice the slight differences that geeky people argue about as regards to 'testing' ..... the differences are that small.
I struggle to understand this endless battle between Android fanboys and Apple fanboys. It's quite mindnumbing and b.o.r.i.n.g really.
What does this all achieve?
Planning on iphone either 8plus or X. I prefer larger and wider displays. X has a larger display but looks like the its less wider. Any suggestions which one to go for. iPhone 8plus or iphone X???
Anonymous, 05 Dec 2017People use face Id because it does not have touch Id People use Face ID because it's great. Everytime when im using my iPad with touch ID it feels outdated.
Liaminit, 04 Dec 2017Well do you think apple need to upgrade their hardware paying £1400 for a low spec phone... moreFor my opinion, I totally disagree with u, because I had used the different android samsung phones with good config(Note 5). I was not happy with the performance and battery compared to my iphone. In android, you will never get half day battery life if you switch on push notification, location services, and mobile data. This is my experience, maybe your LG have more I don't know
[deleted post]And don't forget the most important, looking ridiculous while using it
Look this video and you will understand why no-one uses iris scanning while Face ID was instant hit https://youtu.be/Fc4J7tvW0FA
I didn't even count how many times Samsung phone said "hold phone closer" :D
Jhk, 04 Dec 2017About 90% of you really have no idea what your taking about. If you've ever built a computer o... moreSamsung makes all of iphones screens? totally lol why samsungs glass always smash and new iphones dont on drop tests? and iphones glass always made stronger? lol You say we no nothing becuase you work with building PCS, its not always about Mother board sometimes it can be down to graphics card of CPU, Your knowledge is false xD But good try though.
