Kinda wished they at least change the design instead of the 8 as it's identical to the 7. Either way will probably see all the kids on campus wrapping their iPhone 8 in a Uniqfind skin....
Annas, 17 Sep 2017I love how on the internet, a virtual reality almost everybody hates Apple and iphones, but in... moreEveryone? Maybe in countries like America, where most people are brainwashed by their "freedom". They have freedom yet they choose to live by unwritten rules and follow groups of people. Instead of having their own personality, they would rather do something a majority of people do.
I have a friend who would choose a 3 year old used apple MacBook or an iPhone over a newer and better device. If you have to buy an used apple device to afford it, you need to set up your priorities right. When I told him that there are much better laptops or ultrabooks for better price, he just wouldn't listen to me.
People buy apple products because other people buy it. Not because they're good. In America you're often judged for not using an apple device, especially in schools. It's sort of like a status symbol.
It would be very hard, next to impossible to stop that thinking and apple is using that position. It has gotten so bad that even if they mess up, no one bats an eye or it gets covered by that apple group's comments, claiming that other devices suck, while distracting us from the real issue. Whenever some other company messes up, that group is the first to start the trash talking. Not only apple fans do a huge favor for apple by buying their products, they also offer free service of covering up their sh*te.

So this is just well thought.
FaceID is better, raise to wake+touch the home button currently, now raise to wake+swipe up
no microsd? go with 256, its a phone, 4k 60 fps its a very good one
If I'm forced: iPhone 8 plus, the best and most reliable project, X is too experimental
Normal choose: None, I prefer one of any Android phone out there

-Video camera is great (lossless zoom, OIS, low light), still images are good

-Wireless and fast charging (at long last, iPhone 7 took 4h+ to charge full)

-FaceID (TouchID was much more convenient)

*Half swipe up for multitasking - what if you were trying to scroll or go home?
*Have to reach top middle for notifications - it's a stretch, why not just a swipe down

*Have to reach top right for control centre - already a stretch, but now you can/will

-No headphone jack
-No micro SD
-No dual sim
-Smallish battery (especially the iPhone 8 at 2150mAh)
-All the other iOS restrictions - file mangement, limited file format support, iTunes, no customisability, one app store, no sideloading, no torrenting
-Front facing speakers would have been nice
Overall, I think it's a good phone that will ultimately annoy the living sh#t out of me because of all the restrictions. All it really has over the Galaxy S8/LG V30 is the A11 chipset
How come we even talk so much about iPhones? As if they were any sort of special compared to the rest... It's highly unfair to all other brands who regularly put up compelling and even better products, more so considering apple's malevolent practices.
I love how on the internet, a virtual reality almost everybody hates Apple and iphones, but in real life, everybody buys them
Stupid questions or better options!
Iphone x is an upgrade following android design with small bezels.
The 8 and 8+ is same old, same old.
iPhone 8($1000), iPhone 8 and 8+($750), Samsung Galaxy Note 8($940), Sony Xperia XZ premium($850), LG V30 ($900) and HTC U11($880). All phones are overpriced that in comparison, you can buy or book almost either 300 fidget spinner, book a premium economy class on an airplane, 5 laptops, 5 nights at 5 star hotel and... 9 drones!!! I would rather buy 2013-2016 flagship phones that cost less than $650.
It's just like asking whether Donald Trump is good President or not...For iPhone fans, they will forever feel iPhone is the hottest phone every time new iPhone is launched... regardless of the crazy price with almost same specs n functualities. Similarly, Android lovers will forever support the variaties that Android phone can offer.

Why are iPhone wallpapers getting worse? The new wallpapers are downright garish and ugly.

AnonD-1825, 17 Sep 2017Lot to say about device which you haven't ever seen or hold, just saying..You bring a good point.
However, it doesn't really mean I am wrong. I can extrapolate on the experience of the iPhone X from the many photos, measurements, videos, hands-on, and opinions. Not to mention to understand how it is based on comparison to similar devices such as the Galaxy S7, Essential PH-1, Note8, and iPhone 7 Plus.
It's like if I see a helicopter stuck in a tree.
"Well, he screwed up there"
I'm no expert in aviation, nor am I a helicopter pilot, but my opinion here is true DESPITE the lack of direct comparatives. Few times/Most times when you know, you just know, not always but sometimes.
