Oathbreaker, 03 Oct 2017I believe Apple should have never had "s" models. Next year if the next iPhones look like the ... moreThe S naming was perfect. It was no disingenuous like the numeric naming of S family phones.
See S means "process", like upping the number means a new generation.
So you had iphone (1), iPhone 3G (2nd gen), iPhone 3gs (still 2nd gen), iPhone 4 (3rd gen), iPhone 4s (still 3rd gen), iPhone 5 (4th gen), iPhone 5s (4th gen still), 6 (5th gen), 6s (5th Gen), 7 (6th Gen), 8 (6th gen still).
Iphone change gen every two years. One could say that since iphone 6 we're in the same gen actually. So 7 should had been named 6s 2016 and 8 6s - 2017 ... if we were to be frank.
It's actually iphone 7 that messed things up. It made minor changes yet upped the number. By comparison 6 had different size, design, aspect ratio and screen size , all major *external* differences. Same between iphone 5 and iphone 4, same between 4 and 3gs (diffent size, design, resolution in that case)

i think the poor quality of the lightning cable should also be mentioned as one of the biggest flaws of this phone. i hate how fragile it is
I believe Apple should have never had "s" models. Next year if the next iPhones look like the X, still call it XI. The iPhone 4 was the only named properly for the generation it was released. 4s messed up the order. We should be on iPhone 11 this year. Many cars look the same year after year but still are labeled the year they will get released.
Apple should either drop the numerics and just call it iPhone like they do to their Macs and iPads. Or call it XI since X gave them a fresh start at naming them. So by 2020, we would have iPhone XIII and it would mean that iPhone is 13-years old that year. Apple really screwed up the naming thanks to the s naming.
Rimoti, 03 Oct 2017Nothing about the iPhone 8 #splitgate yet? It happened to 2 phones in china, why should i care. It's not like they exploded right in your hand

PiCosm, 03 Oct 2017Why would anyone want to hack your phone and how would they know you were important or even nearby?"Why would anyone want to hack your phone"
If every fandroid thinks like that, I hope that you soon start to use online banking and using android pay, then you will see what your "customization" gets you
AnonD-700950, 03 Oct 2017Sorry , I disagree with you.Nice to see that you love fps using touch screen, it's not for me, cos it just feels so clumsy and imprecise, but there again, I only play dedicated portable video game consoles for current generation Games and use ps3 or ps4 dual shock controller for emulation on my phone for retro games, also I own around 30 controller from 5 generations of video games, including dedicated twin stick, flight stick, 4 arcade style joysticks, even para para paradise infra red controller

It is competitive based on the pricing because it have the current high-end flagship horsepower with a decent price, very competitive with Apple

Web browsing and video playback is good but the calling time is poor. I think the speaker is consuming a lot of power considering that browsing time is good.
AnonD-700950, 03 Oct 2017are you finished ? go get an A3 and I will enjoy iphone 6I'm using the first generation A3 and it still has the advantages of an AMOLED screen, headphone jack, FM radio and larger battery over this iPhone hahaha
AnonD-700950, 03 Oct 2017IOS is the most stable and secure system around. I dont care about the extras you love about a... moreYeah, yeah SECURITY. Is that a reason why FBI has a tool that can hack anyone's iPhone? If they want, they can hack yours, mine and about anyone out there. Someone stole lot of private pics of celebrities stored in iCloud, not long ago. What that means? iPhone can be hacked by anyone with right skills. There are instances where iPhones are hacked. Hackers have long developed their skills and are not so stupid to use Themes as their way of hacking your phone. iOS is somewhat secure and stable than android agreed, but it's too restrictive to be called an advanced OS. For even the most basic thing of selecting a mp3 from your playlist as a ringtone, you need to do all kinds of editing work. Oh you think this also a SECURITY issue?
Now where are an isheep army that always bash sony about bezel,about low battery? Iphone 8 had just being roast by xz1 compact in every aspect espiacially at value for money
