There's no greatness in removing features based on assumptions. There's no greatness in wiping user data without their consent, and invoking Error 53.

In any case google was not the first search engine, and all these products you see google running were bought by google! Even android was bought by google in a way. Google is another example of a western company starting from the US in a garage and then expanding by doing things better and by buying other companies. Google and apple are very similar in many ways. But apple has been around for so long. People need to understand that apple's prestige was not built around iphones. Apple has been around since the beginning of computing and has been shaping the industry all these years. Comparing apple to google/samsung is like comparing Mercedes-benz to Tesla. To hate apple means that you have no knowledge and or appreciation of the history of the industry.

Don't hate and appreciate greatness.
Rafe Firmani, 18 Sep 2017"People throw rocks at things that shiny" is true sayings in this case
Just like indegenous... moreSometimes the 'hate' (better term - skepticism) for apple is reasonably justified.
Such as how they treat disposables, their responsibility towards environment, how they treat customers, vendors and service centres.
How impenetrable is their ecosystem, and how they handle license fees and otherwise make decisions primarily for their gain, and not for customers sake.
"People throw rocks at things that shiny" is true sayings in this case
Just like indegenous javanese indonesian hates chinese ethnic, motivated by fear, insecurity and inferiority complex.
This same case to people hating apple. I'm android user, htc fans btw.
ZloiYuri, 17 Sep 2017I see people hate iPhones without reason. Just because they need to hate something. Of course,... moreThe amount of hate Apple receives is unreal. I agree iOS isn't my cup of tea either (macOS is great though) but their phones are really easy to use, always super fast no matter what you're doing, frequently updated for a much more longer period of time and takes consistently great photos regardless of the atmosphere. I find myself using my moms 128GB 6S Plus quite often and that thing is a pleasure to use even if I get bored of it rather quickly. Can't say the same for most Android phones, doesn't help that both Nougat and now Oreo are hella boring too.

Definitely skip this iPhone charade, Android had everything already what these iphones has, apple just catching up and charging you up like it is new invention, prices are ridiculous, people must skip and think about much better alternatives for human prices

Answer for both: dual cam, which means you get 2x zoom, which makes huge difference for people who take photos.
For example only thing what i really wanted from iPhone x is to give me dual cam in small device, and i got it

Sure, with iPod we can store thousands of songs in our pocket, but many mp3 players were born before iPod, lol.
Apple may change the world, but doesnt mean google not changed the world. And thanks to Samsung and LG their competition and innovation on screen/display technology also changed the world.
Realistic scenario for me:
iPhone X is too expensive, I'd rather have a proven fingerprint scanner, and I never shoot 4K because I can't afford to buy appropriate display.
So: iPhone 8

alikh, 18 Sep 2017Your type of response means to me, you know nothing about CPU and architecture and etc!
But a... moreYes, I'm comparing mainly on Geekbench score (which is comparable), x265 encoding speed (which on arm don't utilize NEON) and single precision MFLOPS.
I was referring to i7-7700. If I take S625 as an example, then that is comparable to i5-3340M at 3.2GHz - 2.5fps for x265 on both systems.
i7-7700 runs at 350MB/s-ish Zlib, considering then S835 is 2.5 times faster, the scores would match.
BTW, if you want to oppose argument, it's perfectly fine by me, but starting your post with "you know absolutely nothing about ..." isn't the right way to do it IMHO.
