Anonymous, 17 Nov 2017So your assuming apple would release this make believe device similarly specd for 200 less?? W... moreSo based on all arguments so far, if some one has valid point and you can't prove it other wise, those are the people who are android fanboys?? and this "Make believe device"?? was iphone 7 make believe? i thought they actually released it..... Read carefully at least, i said exact same models but with SD cards, and yeah why would they do that when they want you to pay 200$ more for same phone if you need more than 32Gig on your phone.... locking out for upgrade is best way to make those extra dollars.... You yourself are proving my point buddy, not providing SD slot is a dirty monetizing tactic by Apple, it has no other reason to not exist.... Enjoy iPhone Ex..... :)

And exactly same argument i hear from a lot of apple fanboys, People say Starbucks coffee is overpriced, based on your logic those might be the ones who don't have 5$.... right??

W... moreLol.... you are now humiliating yourself, you clearly have bias for apple, you mean people can go online and pre-order phone but can't figure out how to buy SD card, those are exactly the people with a lotta money on their hand, again not avg consumers by the way......in your imaginary world of avg consumers they are educated enough to go to apple . com and uneducated enough to be not able to check amazon . com, this and by the way only if they want SD card, for other purchases amazon . com is good enough for them too.... because you know jeff bezos didn't become rich without reason, these exact people buy a lot from amazon.... And you lost this argument long time ago when you didn't even know SD card prices, yet argued it to no end........ shows how much actually you know about SD cards in general.... And don't be too sensitive, i know truth hurts but who needs truth when we are fanboys.... hahaha, enjoy your top 'Notch' iphone by Apple.... It doesn't sting me even remotely if somebody wants to pay 1000$ to be beta tester and calls it future, just a fodder for laughter that's all.......
All those people who thrased Iphone are the same people who cant even afford Samsung and telling us the notch is this amd that and so it has no memory card wtf dude which year you are living in.? No body wants a SD-CARD.

Haha this is funny about as funny as assuming the majority of people owning mobile devices are more than willing to jump online to purchase Sd cards.. Wow.
You are not the average consumer.. Seriously try harder your smarter than that .
As I said I'm done and again I'm off to grab the X if I can as you know, it's sold out for weeks...
That's gotta sting but I'm sure you'll get over it... Eventually..

Just as you assume the general consumer is going to buy a Sd card online.. Can you imagine the mums and dads jumping online to purchase Sd cards..haha Its actually laughable
Now my point was never if people use Sd cards or not.. Your clutching at straws I get that,that's fine
Your initial comment which basically reiterated exactly what gsmas review said, by the way thanks for that.. what in attempt to rub it in fanboys faces?? prompted by you obvious dislike of apple. No one else would bother unless they 1. Have way too much time on their hands and or clearly don't like apple and or their devices That is fact plain and simple and undeniable
I'm done with you, and you keep lying to yourself
I'm off to get my hands on the iPhone x

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 it’s better than the iPhone 8-8+ it’s not the same digital only output? I mean no DAC.
Can anyone add more details?
It’s a very good news anyway having a “stellar audio quality “ 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.....
