congrats apple fans, out of the box fast charger with type C, though not the "first" one to do that

I think it's a matter of taste.
With more and more users acceptingthe iOS-like huawei and xiaomi's ui (other brands also exist), Google probably chose to test whether a larger user base would accept that look or not *shrug*
To me, UI is of little importance, as long as I can call, text and use my apps, anything will do.

It's still a sleek and modern design, don't get me wrong. Beats Holo or iOS 6 on any day. But it's nowhere as good as Material Design.

iOS also copied some android elements before. In my opinion, users win either way.
I highly doubt apple will implement a usb-c port inside the phone, probably a lighting port with a lighting cable and a lightning to usb-c dongle, a usb-c to usb-a dongle, and a usb-c to 3.5mm dongle. That's, naturally with the already existing lighting dongles.
apple actually already does have a wall charger with usb-c port....

Without that... no change. Hell will freeze before Apple would reduce its income by using standard connectors.

Facial recognition has been around forever, but Apple is the first company to make it secure enough and fast enough to be usable.
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2018"they took IP protection froim Samsung"
Dumb samsung fanboy...Man they did S5 was first ordinary cell phone with IP resistance.
And i am not Samsung fanboy.
I hate overpriced brands with mediocre to poor quality like apple or Samsung.
So please stop snezing that chocolate truflee powder :-)
Very misleading title.
Anyway, Apple is nowhere near to get rid of the Lightning. Without talking about the quality of the port (and its pros and cons), it just bring Apple way too much money.
Apple dont forget to patent USB-C like your own and force all to the courts for stealing your technology :-)
Last year they copied amoled, face scanner from Samsung and stereo speakers dolby atmos from Lenovo and the Notch from Essential phone.
Year before with Iphone 7 they took IP protection froim Samsung every year they copy something and present as their own.
I assume this year they will copy tripple camers setup from Huawei maybe borrow a Leica even borrow a Gal Gadot for their Marketing :-)
But people always love crapple :-)
