Try it, class 10 micro-sd cards for 40-45$ without any special offer, and as claimed by you, you are or at least have been an android user, can you explain to me why would anybody need an SD card adapter to transfer files when you have Share it and Superbeam or a good old styled usb data cable?? all you need is the slot in your phone, pop the card in and transfer the files the way you want, and i quoted GSMA because you started quoting them, again you started it dude :)... And i certainly don't base opinions on just 1 review site, i just said they quoted my main point in brief manner.... So let's hear how iPhone 7 with 128Gig storage which was 200$ costly than its base model is economically sensible choice (for an avg consumer) vs base model + 40-45$ tops if Apple had provided SD slot for all the models of iphone 7....

It would also be unwise to base my opinion on one review site hence why I've read /watched basically every top review for the iPhone x.. And on top of that, wait for it... I've used the phone.. Crazy I know.
Now I don't know where your buying for Sd cards from unless your talking e bay, but here I wouldn't be able to find a 64 for 40bucks let alone a 128.. Construeing things yet again.yeah your an average consumer haha
I was actually planning on grabbing either the pixel 2 xl or the iPhone x.. But Google has messed that up.. No other flagships this year have interested me..
Over the last 6-7 years I've owned every single flagship swapping from ios to Android numerous times I think both are great and you just can't stomach that..
Your dislike for Apple is so apparent I can't even say arguably, it sets you off... The proof is in the pudding, it's clear as day, everyone else can see that too
And you've proven your dislike over and over again, and that's cool, that really is fine but don't you dare claim someone else is incapable of rational and or critical thinking yeah.
I wonder how the audio quality itÂ’s better than the iPhone 8-8+ itÂ’s not the same digital only output? I mean no DAC.
Can anyone add more details?
ItÂ’s a very good news anyway having a Â“stellar audio quality Â“ on this iPhone!!!!

I'm also fully aware that SD card memory is more than fast enough to store photo's on you make, or most video's as well. It certainly is plenty fast enough for playing stored music and video from it. Just because it's slower than onboard memory, does not mean it has no purpose.
A truck is slower than a sports car, but when you need to move your furniture, you likely are totally happy to be able to use that truck.

And this "But right now, the iPhone X feels like a rushed product with beta software, overhyped and overpriced. " but i guess we all choose what we want to focus on, so i won't be surprised at all if you ignored this.
That's tho whole point of my criticism in expressed in short by GSMA. As for SD card stuff you are actually saying people will pay more for same??.... I won't even argue this, speaks volumes of who's biased here , may be you mean different when you use word 'Avg consumer' .... enjoy paying more for same .... my comments are for those who do not have bias for Apple.

You called me a fanboy yes a name which by the way is not true, me calling you Mr bias is what you are assuming your a Mr
The point your trying to prove is irrelevant, 1. It's make believe.. That's all..
What your trying to prove that people will pay less for essentially the same thing??? Well done sir.. Even then yes I believe from my personal experience most not all do not want to go out buy a Sd card (which for 32 and up are not cheap.. You know this) with an adapter to use just to file transfer and even in this mystical scenario yes I think people would be prepared to pay a higher price.. Definitely? How on earth would I know? Twisting things again just as me apparently saying no one uses Sd cards right?
Why android is clear market majority? Android devices are more accessible and more affordable, period.
And thank you..
I mention 'arguably the best' and it prompts paragraphs of responses.. Maybe look up the definition of the word arguably cool? And critical while your at it...
Yes arguably, and if you can't even swallow that you are truly blind but yeah I'm sure you've at least used the phone in person right?? even using gsma words.. Class leading display, 'arguably the most powerful processer, some of the best stereo speakers and a top camera performer not be considered in such terms? Overpriced? Subjective, but then again basically ever top reviewer I've come across has stated people sitting on the fence about dropping 1000 on a phone won't be disappointed..now that does really speak volumes considering how overpriced it is..o and I mean from people that have actually spent time with the phone.
Your responses are constantly twisted to your advantage, your words used, even the ones left out..
Here a tip don't become a reviewer /or at least one that reviews Apple devices from time to time.
Hard to be critical when you are bias from the beginning
So much so it's what prompted you to leave a comment in the first place.
Take it easy buddy

sales specifically bought for mobile devices would be interesting wouldn't it? Thank you
Anonymous, 16 Nov 2017Seriously, everyone's clutching at straws to bash the iPhone x.. No it doesn't bring anything ... moreDisagreeing with someone that the iPhone X is the second coming isn't really the same as bashing it. Telling that the phone isn't really bringing anything new to the table seemingly is unwanted, only praise is welcome...
There is plenty of people that don't mind the notch, there is plenty who find is just ugly. Why push aside the opinion of those that disagree with you as non-valid argument? In any case, other companies could not do it? The notch is made by Samsung tools, Essential phone had a notch earlier than Apple and LG had, in the end, a more elegant solution with a second mini-display above the main display. Just because other companies do not do a certain thing, does not mean they can not do it. With the iPhone X selling well, it's likely that some companies will try a phone with a notch too in their line up. Time will tell how popular these devices will be comparative to 'normal' phones.
For the rest, if you want to call playing catch-up with the market a great step forward, be my guest. Yes, in raw numbers, the processor is the strongest on the market for phones. It's Apple's benefit to design it's own core for just it's own devices. A company like Qualcomm can't take risks that way, since they depend on selling their SoCs to many different companies. Those companies demand specific charasteristics and in the wide range between the different demands of the different companies, Qualcomm tries to make the best possible product.
It's easy to make a more wide processor, that takes more space on the die and uses more power when fully utilized, but if it does not sell, or does not sell at the correct price, it's of no use. Other than that, while A11 has some benefits in specific situations, most of the common phone use cases, it does not outshine other high end SoCs too much at all.
Generally, it may not be a bad phone at all, but it isn't the second coming either. It's just a good phone with a price tag that does not allow for anything less good than that. In the end, there will be people who buy it and there will be people that like SD-card slots in their phone.
Anonymous, 16 Nov 2017Don't be so literal. But Read into it any way you want, the argument as in your clearly bias ... morePlease explain, how a company (the biggest? At best in the bloated stockmarket) that holds roughly 15% of the total market, makes it so that the other ~85% of the people not buying devices of said company do not want to use SD-card storage in their devices?
Yes, iPhones hold no more than ~15% of the global market. The rest prefers phones with more freedom (including freedom to add SD storage). Just because a single model of an iPhone is very popular (not strange when only 1 or 2 new models are released every year most commonly), does not mean everybody and their mom want one. It's just popular in a relative way.
Now, I'd love to see some real arguments too why no one would want to use SD storage.
Anonymous, 16 Nov 2017Don't be so literal. But Read into it any way you want, the argument as in your clearly bias ... moreDear oh dear... who's calling names now, There is no bias, if presenting facts adn asking tough questions, means bias to you then no one can have any argument.... It's your opinion that people should not talk about the devices that they are not buying, but i am interested in tech and even if i don't buy a certain product there could be some discussion about it which i can add my point to.... 'don't like what apple's doing then don't buy but don't talk about it' is very amateur argument.... you see it as a valid thing i don't. And now this "Apple has arguably released the best flagship in recent years"... Seriously?? what's best about it ?? being most costly phone? that notch (which i think is a branding attempt over user experience)?? Having the proprietary connector (over USB C)?? Having Snapchat features built into phone(animoji)?? or the first attempt at OLED?? ohh wait it must be wireless charging... oh no wait it could be fast charging.... The only thing it at all has is 4K 60 FPS over other flagships, and sorry if i missed Face ID because that's the amount of attention it deserves, just an unlock method blown out of proportions and not even convenient to boot with and now we see 10 year old son unlocking mother's device with face id... so much for 1 in a million chance, you know what else has one in a million chance, a 6 digit passcode.....
AnonD-715389, 13 Nov 2017Hi, All
iPhone X is better OR Samsung Galaxy Note 8
Regards!I own the Note 8, I do not own or have seen in person the IPhone X, so my opinion is purely on the Note 8.
I love it, best phone I have ever used, screen is amazing, no notch, very high resolution if you want, but I use it in the mid settings, battery life is stunning, one speaker is a disappointment, but I use my headphones as the phone has a headphone jack, waterproof 100%, been swimming with it no issues at all, the camera's, my God absolutely amazing pictures on part with my DSLR, no complaints at all full manual mode if you want, amazing in low light.
I could go on, I admit I am an Android guy, could never get along with IPhone, I like to customize to much, the IPhone X is probably a great phone, but that's it "great" nothing more, nothing less.
Seriously, everyone's clutching at straws to bash the iPhone x.. No it doesn't bring anything new to the table, well that's been actually usable at least. Nor has any other phone manufacturer for the last couple years..
Yes it's expensive, apple always has been so why shoked? It's Apple, it's business and people are clearly more than willing to pay that kind of cash for them, blame the consumers not Apple.. At least now hardware speaking it sits on top
Yes you can buy similar specd phones cheaper.. No ones forcing you to buy the iPhone x are they? Knock yourself out
Yeah but the notch though... Seriously lol try harder.. most people clearly are not bothered by it nor am I
Fact remains its done something Samsung could not,nor any other manufacturer to date and it brings at least an attempt to bring something new to the table while all other brands become more and more alike
And even it brings absolutely nothing new to the table it still brings, one of if not the best screens, the fastest more powerful chip, some of the best on board speakers, one of the top camera performers.. Great build, better siri the list continues. No other brand has put together a phone that sits so highly on pretty much every single component.. Period.
Yes it's expensive, at least it's somewhat justified this time round.. and at least apple is trying to separate it self from what is a somewhat staling pack.
You know I'm not talking to anyone specifically.. But it hurts I know

But Read into it any way you want, the argument as in your clearly bias which was my point from the beginning.. Sorry buddy if you don't think the average smartphone user has a need for an Sd card there's no point talking to you and again proving my point..
Riddle me this, how if people are so in need of Sd cards how has Apple become the biggest company in the world basically based on sales of one device and most sort after device ever (this is where you call me a fanboy again) ... That wait for it...doesnt have an sd card slot...
Your clutching at straws was my point, clearly bias , that was also my point.. Yes you started calling names... And once again twisting your words. Again stating my point...
This isn't a who said last deal buddy.. Also before you try and come off as high and mighty on products you clearly have no interest in which makes no sense, give some people some credit yeh?.. It's like your mad because Apple has arguably released the best flagship in recent years.. Calm down I know that is going to be touching a nerve so apologies
I got nothing more to say to you Mr clearly bias

Haha yeah ok labe... moreLost an argument?? was there even an argument?? normal people don't bother with SD card was your claim ... based on what?? was the question from me, and all your comments are claims, 'you are lying to yourself', 'you are kidding', 'if you think otherwise it's a lie' etc.... there's hardly anything about it that qualifies for an argument. and why should it matter whether i want to buy iphone or not ? doesn't make the unethical monetizing practices that manufacturers are indulging in any more fair or unfair, i don't buy apple device but i have rationale as to why i don't/won't buy and i put it out there, what's wrong with that .... You started name calling dude, i was not even referring to you (when i said fanboys can't be reasoned with) in the other comment which you responded to, Saying i lost it or won it is stupid coz there was no argument just a vague claim from your side. BTW you still have not answered what would an average person do if he needs more than onboard storage of base model (because of whatever reasons), and given option to buy iphone base model with Expandable slot (if it ever had) or higher on board storage than he needs but without SD card, paying a lot more than he should? Your answer is not to buy that phone which is only good if you are using single device from that ecosystem but there are genuine cases where people have been part of an ecosystem, they are used to an OS, might have paid for apps and are forced to pay more for new phone(just for extra storage) in order to avoid the hassle to leave the ecosystem, So if it makes you feel better about yourself then sure go ahead and enjoy thinking there even was an argument from your side and you won it......

So u must be mad about something Mr clearly bias
Yeah I see you clear as day buddy
I'm done lol
Anonymous, 14 Nov 2017 Your right I don't get your point.. Don't buy apple. And i said if you don't have anything better to say to people who don't agree with your point of view, don't read opinion threads, problem solved, you know, just like you say, don't like apple don't buy apple, .... I am not buying apple products either, this is just opinion thread, nobody is buying anything here.
