I think apple is struggling to find a new things to offer to customer as an innovation instead of just removing ports to their products. If we compare with the Giant Tech like Samsung who always bring new things every year as their innovations, Apple seems a bit falling behind in term of technology. However, Apple is always proven to release a very mature product when it released to market, compared to Samsung which I think some of their innovation just a gimmick feature which some customers probably will never use it. in Conclusion, apple more like playing safe when they design and released a product to market because they need to anaylze the market needs first. On the other hand, Samsung is like having fun testing new design and feature to make a breakthrough of innovation eventhough there is a high risk that Market not ready to accept it.
AnonD-568493, 27 Apr 2017Apple, please keep your iPhone 7s and 7s Plus in your factory. The Galaxy Note 8 will be light... moreLight years behind in software performance too.
Stick to Nokia or Pixel. I saw the lag with the S7 edge and S8+ comparison on iPhoneArena, and it is quite evident Samsung sucks with software thanks to their bloated skin.
Pixels offers the best Android experience right now. It beat the S8+ in the camera test blind test from MKBHD. Pick C. Then B. While iPhone 7+ was definitely D worst! Eww! Ugly cast over it and kinda blurry. Even MKBHD picked the Pixel XL.
People to talk crap about the Pixel either never owned one, still can't get it, or just hating on it because it is overpriced or ugly.
Pixel > Galaxy S anyday.
Polius, 27 Apr 2017I saw a video of iphone chronology. The first iphone was so bad it cant even take video. And i... moreMaybe because you are too young, but the first iPhone wasn't necessarily crap for its time. Maybe now, it is considered crap. That's like saying the og Nokia 3310 is crap now. The first iPhone didn't have alot of basic features like front camera, flash, and only 128mb RAM, but it had a revolutionary operating system with multi-touch we never saw before. And the og iPhone had a great design. What jump start the revolution was the App Store released in 2008. I had good and bad times jaikbreaking my iPhone 2G.
I think the first good all-around iPhone released was the iPhone 4. It gave us FaceTime and iOS4 was quite polished. I wouldn't go back using an iPhone 4 or 4s though. Typing on 3.5" is now a challenge. And their GPU is too weak to run certain apps or web browse smoothly. The furthest I would go back at using is the iPhone 5s. But since I hate the restrictions that iOS offers, none of the above. The iPhone 7+ is supposed to have the best camera for an iPhone and lost to the half-priced OnePlus 3T in MKBHD's blind test.
Waiting for Nokia to drop their bad boy using Snapdragon 835. The same chip the Pixel 2 will have six months from now.
Apple, please keep your iPhone 7s and 7s Plus in your factory. The Galaxy Note 8 will be light years ahead. My last Note was the 3 and it was superb. I will be buying the Note 8 and won't even need to look in Apples direction to see what "iterative, incremental, just what the consumer needs" rubbish upgrade the 7s and 7s plus will be.
I don't like glass rears and might end up with the 7s because of it. But then I watch MKBHD camera comparison blind test and laugh when D worst photos came from the 7+. So nevermind. Never again with iOS for me. And it isn't because of high prices.
People should also watch a 22 min documentary video on YouTube about a guy in Shenzhen making his own iPhone 6s with different parts. Now that's fascinating. You realize people make a big deal about design when so many shells are out there in Chinese street vendors.
I went through Green Hills in the Philippines many times. People opening up phones. That's when I realized the outside doesn't matter to me. Design of a phone is like egg shells without the yoke. The inside is what you are after.

The first iphone was so bad it cant even take video. And it was not until iphone 4 the front camera finally can take video. Incredible isnt it. Iphone was never good until iphone 6 came out. The 6 Plus is their life saviour as it is finally the first phablet to ever been released by Apple. I havent even go on how bad the SE was. But still, I like the iphone 7 plus(minus the missing headphone jack) and thats it. All of the older iphone is simply crap.
ithehappy, 27 Apr 2017Actually S8's performance is so terrible that phone like Moto Z Play will demolish it for day ... moreThat accusation is so 2000 and late. Even my S7 doesn't lag with more than 100 3rd party apps installed. The S8 doesn't even come with too much preinstalled apps except for the basic ones. I would rather Samsung have installed all of the Galaxy essential apps in their app store on their smartphones. They're all so useful and are so much better than 3rd party alternatives.
mir, 27 Apr 2017Except for the fact that the current iphone 7 plus leaves the S8 in the dust in terms of both ... moreThe iPhone is a crippled smartphone. It doesn't have much background processes going on and can't even do half of what the S8 can do. It will always win in benchmarks. Same goes for that cheap Oneplus 3T. I'd take rich functionality over a slight difference in app loading time.

However this is no news, Samsung Galaxy phones are renowned for their bloated, laggy, messy performance since beginning, only thing changed is their skin's name that's all. So you can go someplace else to troll.

And don't get me started on the Oneplus 3T. But go and be happy with your pretty phone.
This is fake, iPhone 8 will come 100000% this year... Just because it's an anniversary phone for 2017, not 2018 or something like that, then it wouldn't be anniversary anymore...or iPhone 8 was never a thing and Apple just tricked us and it will release just 7s and 7s plus...
The phone might be called iPhone 11.
It might have chipset 11 and iOS 11.
The battery might last for 11 hours.
The phone might weight 11 ounces.
It might last 11 months before you need to buy iPhone 12 next year.
Apple is lagging so far behind Samsung in technological development. I doubt the iPhone 7s will be able to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S8, nevermind the Note 8.
Technically first iPhone was so bad that even some fans dont want to talk about it.
It was seriously bad working phone that beside music player didnt had anything at all.
So It would be funny if they would release... similar phone. Boring, useless with lack of any proper functions, and hyped just because it was phone from new company on field(that was actual reason why it went popular, because it was new big company on market, because seriously first iPhone was sooooo bad.)
