AnonD-546038, 25 Sep 2017I'm curious to see what will happen with iPhoneX and Apple in the months ahead. Apple already... moreSmart investors have been buying Apple stock right after launches and selling just before the next for years. Stock price always drops once the device is released, as expectations on the reveal are out of touch with reality. Buy now and wait for next year.
Apple is folowing anothers style and tech inovation, dont say "apple make it perfect and choose the right time to apply it" . the fact is apple copy modified and realease with tag name. Point is apple is not inovator any more!
Why they offered iphone8 devices? Cause they werent quite sure in success of iphone X....Good thing they did that.
Only problem is...iphone 8 is exact copy of iphone 7....for a ridiculously high price....
New SoC doesnt help, as even some android flagships turn out to be equal or faster in real usage.
Dxo dubious suspicious camera scoring wont help much for marketing too, I am affraid, cause its too expensive for an exactly same looking phone.
The iPhone X is "top notch", ahahah. WTH they were thinking to cripple the display like that?

than... moreStorage wise on most Android phones is no big deal, just slap in a 500GB SD card and tell me if you still lack storage... Can iPhone do that?
Apple is slowly losing the market mostly outside of US where Android dominates and is probably eating its way in the US aswell....
AnonD-692155, 25 Sep 2017I confess, was one of those that buys 7 new iPhones reguardless of price. On my family plan I ... moreLol we all know the feeling...
But one day when I was complaining to my mom how slow she learn the phone menu, she said: "Don't be cocky, I taught you to use fork and spoon!"
End of discussion.

You my friend, are Plato of the 21st century
I never see wiser comment all my years following this tech site.
Wonder why?!..... That keynote was a real joke! Was expecting a LOT more from apple... I had almost all models since thier debut. I've Skipped the 7 and 7s by taking a leap of faith on Samsung S7 Edge, hoping something fresh and new for the 8. What a deception!
Apple totally lost it.
Apple equals money whores more than ever... // Same old design wow!!! what an innovation! "we gonna take the look of the old iPhone 4S and make a blend with the 7S" // // few tweeks "if its none at all // fast charge! (Oh yeah btw you have to buy extra stuff to get fastcharge) //
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2017That's why they offer 256gb lolYup, and by paying extra for a phone with already high price, and people wonder why apple is top in profit eventhough they aren't even half the market share
I don't think Apple is as strong as today like few years back in smartphone market. This iPhone X looks awkward and common. First th display is very similar to infinity display and with the ugly spot it looks way different. Second it does not have any new features which is not present in other devices. Third, the price is too much. Thanks to the very high price of It, even the Samsung Galaxy S 8+ Note lookes budget device. Also news is that the new Google Pixel 2 will have some exciting features and cost less. Overall common user will wait and consider all the options. But Yes, very hard core Apple users will buy if without any thought.
I wonder if Steve Jobs himself was there today, how different this device have looked like?
Making things scarce increases their perceived value, like diamonds.
AnonD-67138, 25 Sep 2017This is results of lack of inovation.Only copying Chinese or South Coreans companies. And already now also Japanese companies.
Duel, 25 Sep 2017"The problem is the storage, 64gb on a phone that shoots 4k 60fps is just not enough." than... more64GB is little by today flagship standard, many people can fill up 32GB in mere week so 64GB is no big of a deal
I'm curious to see what will happen with iPhoneX and Apple in the months ahead.
Apple already lost 50 billion of stock market value in the last days ($834.9 billion -> $782.5 billion). Let's see the impact of these kind of news.
Also, 50% of the world doesn't have a smartphone yet. Android phones are more attractive for first time buyers because of the much lower entry level price.
Let's see in the Q1 2018 and Q2 2018 how things gonna go for AAPL.
This is results of lack of inovation.Only copying Chinese or South Coreans companies.
Duel, 25 Sep 2017"The problem is the storage, 64gb on a phone that shoots 4k 60fps is just not enough." than... more64 gigs is okay if you save a lot of your content on the cloud, or use services like Apple Music. I have 70+ gigs of music alone, I need my content offline, so for me the 64gb variant isn't really an option. Different storage sizes for different needs :-)

thanks to iOS11 videos on photos takes half a space, also how many even shoot 4k videos? not many. And even for 64gb you can save quite a lot 4k material.
i'm going to buy 64gb model. currently i have 64gb iPhone 6s and i have almost 30gb free, nowdays you don't need space for many things. Movies stream from web, music comes from spotify, apple music etc. only thing what takes space is those videos and games.
....LOL it wouldn't sellout as they planned (maybe)....
the specs are not worth that stiff price ..TOO HIGH for 2013 SPECS!
