Anonymous, 28 Oct 2018Problably next year. Man theyÂ’re great with 6 cores. I canÂ’t imagine 8And knowing apple. they will go weird configuration like 3+5. But knowing these cores are MONSTERS... I don't see why shouldn't they. (Or maybe Novecore? (nine) cores.)

If amazon stuff weren't overpriced they would've held on to second place. Greed is one's greatest downfall.
I'm sure CEO and Founder of Amazon Jeff Bezos won't be too worried, he's still the World's richest person, from memory I think he earns $8 million/ hr., with a net worth surpassing $150 billion.
I took my name off the list because I don't like to show off ;)

Two monumental failures by Microsoft
Thee first was too take forever to release Windows phone 8 which added memory expansion, not on Windows phone 7
Every major phone maker had a Windows phone 7, just Microsoft lumia and Nokia (essentially the sam released Windows phone 8
Finally whilst Windows phone 8 is a viable OS but discontinued Windows phone 10 failed on every device it was tested on prior to being launched to run out of the box on the flagship Lumia 950 even that phone had major OS problems
Windows phone 10 a cul de sac OS, two years of corrective updates did no solve the many problems
Say Microsoft wanted to get back in the phone market which it stated it has no intention to do due to WP10. You can't have a phone running WP 10 device as it would have all the issues windows phone 8 discontinued is the only viable software
WP10 failure and Microsoft inability to fix it is why there are no lumia phones and third party apps follows phone markets
The title should be "Microsoft switches seats with Amazon as the second most valuable US (tech) company".
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2018If only size of the camera was important then Android using manufacturers won't have gone back... moreNever said it was the only important thing, but having bigger / the biggest sensor really helps the quality. Also resolution was never a problem, just a processing, huawei shows that by using quad bayer, sony by using triple layer, or you can counter that by aperture or some other new tech. Now I just hope for ''a bit'' faster focusing tech so we can get also sharp pic while having big aperture(focus stacking). Microsoft was eyeing camera arrays(pelican imaging), wonder what will end up being the best, new camera sensor tech or using multiple.

nate0, 27 Oct 2018If I was really into video recording and cameras I would not buy a smartphone at all for that.Actually most recent tech is in the phones, as there is most of cash flow and r&d, it also comes out cheaper than some pro tool(and you pay for 1 device), not to mention its mostly more mobile. Well depends on what you do but in most situations mobile phone is most probably on you.
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2018Android is far from perfect Kiya, very farI know it isn't perfect. No OS is. However it's "perfect" in a subjective way. It matches my needs. Do remember that iOS isn't perfect either. Sure. every OS is being closer and closer to achieve that level. but as long there's something called bugs and defects. it never will.
also. REMEMBER ONE THING:
Even if google and apple reaches that level of bug-less OS. users may still refrain for a very simple, and considerably silly reason. It may not match the needs of the user.
[deleted post]Do you know how mamy defects were in iPhone X? And not to mention the horrible experience on iOS 11. I know why I called it a PoS. XS is a whole different League. Profant me all you want. I don't care, because your comment is reported.
Good job Microsoft keep getting better, they are releasing more innovative hardware (Surface lineup) and software (Windows 10) than Apple these days.

Android is far from perfect.
But boils down to user preference which os to choose
nate0, 27 Oct 2018Ya I still do not get that. Considering the specs on the XR and the price point just does not ... moreActually if you just consider apple fun wanting better camera hw, bigger sensor and stereo recording(finally) is enough of reason and big enough update over prehistoric camera specs of older iphones. As for me I wouldn't even consider owning(much less buying) a phone recording mono sound and using selfie sized main camera.
Comparing to what you get for example from huawei for that price...
