Mzma PIB, 29 Jul 2018No more the best screen size 3.5" or 4".. haa haaSince 2014..
So, a single lens notched "budget" iPhone lacking all the features, costs probably around 800 bucks.
All abit predictable after the iphone x
I still think an iphone 9 will appear.
abigfanoftechs, 29 Jul 2018Dark mode & always-on will NOT appear on the iPhones.
Apple does not want to be seen copy... moreSteve was not against big screens. He was against big sizes.
By now he'd probably be sporting 5 inches because we have the tech to kill the bezels and keep the device as small as the original iPhone.
Steve would disagree with the upgrade to 4.7 inches though, especially since it happened during the fat bezel era.
Imo the projection would be as follows (3.5, fat bezels, 4, trim bezels, 5, basically baseless). So in that regard Apple has not strayed from Jobs' way of doing thing.
The one place they strayed was beeping the home button for so long (Jobs removed most of iPad buttons in just 6 years of it's existence , so by 2013 he would had got rid of the remaining iPhone button).
Also Jobs hated having multiple ports. So they took them too long to remove the 3.5mm. He 'd probably had done it a year or two beforehand and he would had done it in such a way (most/all headphone manufacturers supporting lightning) that everybody would agree it is a move for the best.
He was not a hard to understand personality. He basically hated fluff. So most of everything fandroids love, he hated. Take the typical fandroid, inverse him and you can make a my!to billion company.
Sad to see Apple going all notch. Will there be Touch ID? Also sad to see the old iPhone design getting retired. Yes, it was somewhat outdated but it was very practical, simple and timeless. It's a design that everyone knows because it was unique, representing Apple themselves and somewhat iconic of a smartphone...

Duel83, 29 Jul 2018Why every Apple articles are full of whiny insecure bitter Android boys comments? :D Maybe... moreHaha. Their obsession has been going on for years. You're guaranteed to have 90% of the comments on an apple article to be whiny Android fanboys.
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2018steve jobs is rolling in his grave right now...No he's actually probably happy about the money-sucking succubus Apple has become. All part of the bitten apple philosophy.
Luxor, 29 Jul 2018$600 for the cheapest version is too optimistic. I doubt it. Yeah.
Maybe it's $700 or more because, again, it's Apple.
Caeol, 29 Jul 2018I do not know in what world you live in, but on Earth things moved forward, LTE? I had LtTE 5 ... moreits mean lte band. for example some phone can only use lte connection in south east asian but cannot use it in usa
Duel83, 29 Jul 2018Why every Apple articles are full of whiny insecure bitter Android boys comments? :D Maybe... moreAgreed. Android fanboys just dont know how to enjoy their life because too insecure about Apple. How about they just buy their prefered device? instead asking what they want in apple because in the end they never bought it anyway. But thanks to haters, apple always get attention.
BiyoBiyo JunJun, 29 Jul 2018no touch id , no home button , no jack and also no 3d touch ... its downgrade ~Yes. Who in their right mind would buy less for more?
On my Android phones, I use an app called Call Blacklist Pro. I needed to get rid of my T-Mobile voicemail because the bot calls would still leave a vm even after my app would hang up on it. Then I just blacklist numbers starting with +11, +12, etc. I would whitelist my contacts and certain area codes for my work. I used Should I Answer but ended up preferring Call Blacklist Pro instead.
That's the problem with Apple. There isn't much choice to customize things to your liking. I even use Kiwi Browser as my default which can play the YouTube audio while I leave the app. I've used both platforms long enough already. Ten years with iOS and seven with Android. Apple really is about draconian and communism.
I have no interest in any new iPhones. I can finally accept the no headphone jack trend as I plan to go wireless headphones but the hideous notch, glass backs, and iOS' limitations out of the box are still a turn off. A new iPhone can be sold for $200 like an SE, and I still wouldn't buy it. I'm extremely comfortable using Android for the rest of my life. No need to use anything other mobile OS for me.
