[deleted post]You say premium experience and then mention Pocophone?
Pocophone is awesome phone for it's price but it's in no way premium. It's made of plastic and it lacks IP certification, that's far away from premium. Note 9 can be called premium for example.
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2018You got it completely wrong. They said Apple does not regard Android as competition. And this ... moreHow many android users flip between iOS and Android? I’ve found it’s android uses who are closed minded. iOS users tend to have tried android but found iOS to be far better. Android users tend to have not used iOS and still believe they are making an informed decision but were actually just narrow minded.
Oh there is one more CON:
-eSim in some dual-SIM models. How is it convenient and practical? You can't just take the eSIM out, it's locked in the slot into one carrier and you're pretty much f****d when traveling to other countries.
-Design is unchanged compared to last year's iPhone X
-It's iOS and it has a ton of restrictions, especially customization-wise
-Storage upgrades are exorbitantly expensive on top of already high base price
-(Cr)Apple, please put the camera settings in the camera where they belong already!
-No 3.5mm jack since iPhone 7, now need to pay for a $$ dongle, come on! PUT the 3.5mm jack where it belongs like iPhone SE, iPhone 6S and below for convenience, practicality and logical sake!
-No microsd slot since Original iPhone 2G, come on! It's 2018 already! It's been MORE THAN 10 years and you couldn't bother including it at least on proper dual-SIM models like a hybrid slot for example! Everyone should have CHOICES where they want to store! NOT everyone wants to store data in a cloud!
-No fast charger in the box, come on! It's 2018 already! Yet we have to "donate" $$ to get fast charger. Even your closest rival, *cough* Sams*** *cough* has one in the box!
-FUGLY NOTCH since iPhone X. Its hideous! Just like the upcoming Pixel 3 XL! That blocks the full-screen experience when playing games / watching videos etc.
-No home button since iPhone X. How is that going to be easy for a first time iPhone buyer? Using gestures?? What if the screen gets cracked at the bottom, you can't go back to the home screen & you're pretty much f****d.
-No Touch ID since iPhone X. (Cr)Apple, at least implement it in the power button! Not EVERYONE wants to use Face ID because of security, privacy reasons!
There, fixed it for you.
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2018This just one year into the future, please. The X will disappear, and what will you remain wit... moreBecause they don't want to decrease their prices unlike Samsung.
You know, greed.
"Apple failed to make that thing work - if the rumors are to be believed, it's due to overheating issues - and they've quietly scrubbed all mentions of the mat from its websites. That's surely one way to do it, but the internet will remember it forever."
Sams*** *cough* wireless charger mat has NEVER PRODUCED ANY OVERHEATING issues unlike (Cr)Apple. What is Tim C(r)ook doing?? Heck, even Steve Jobs could have made that work without overheating.
Duel83, 26 Sep 2018"Apple is not selling a phone, but an experience, and that's not a lie or shallow PR talk. Mos... moreDisagree apple have had their fair share of bugs just like any OS so your comment is null
Duel83, 26 Sep 2018"Apple is not selling a phone, but an experience, and that's not a lie or shallow PR talk. Mos... moreYup pretty much so, and the service they sell is either hate or like it, there's no middle ground
Pretty much Android and iOS debate has point out the UI UX of iOS system is the definite factor of total hate or a deal maker, while Android is mostly about Hardware they offer for the money
"Apple is not selling a phone, but an experience, and that's not a lie or shallow PR talk. Most of the people who at some point found the iPhone suitable for them won't go to Android no matter what. Even if the iPhone costs more than a thousand bucks. The fluidness and the problem-free iOS, which doesn't require regular cleaning of caches and app data, installing various Play services updates or cleaning spam bloatware - it adds definite value to the user experience."
You said it very well!
"Apple is known for the meticulous attention to detail for its software, the extended iOS support (the 2013 iPhone 5s was just updated and made faster!)" .... ROFL ... if you call ios 11 as attention to detail and meticulous software update then OMG !!!!
And 5S got updated because those owners spent one year using buggy phone with ios 11. It was more of a payback time for apple.
I have to admit, Apple make the best looking phones ...polished edging, sleek backings.. they've had the best styling for a long time.
if you want completely trouble -free phoning, the IPhone you cant go past.. Android definitely not as smooth a experience as iPhone.
Well at least their video stabilization is great.
Is there a signal reception problem on this device (being reported elsewhere)?
Yawn, 26 Sep 2018i like the chipset, camera and lcd ,the rest of it bunch of junk like previous oneSame.

i like the chipset, camera and lcd ,the rest of it bunch of junk like previous one
If you can’t afford it don’t hate on it. Nobody is telling you all to buy the new iPhone geez. Stop being salty about it. If you think other phone is better then go for it just don’t brag and try to bring down Apple every single time. It just wont work you’ll just keep the fire flaming.
4Vortex+rTempest, 6 GB of RAM, WITH android would be the best combo. *-*
In Indonesia, the price of Iphone XS 64gb is the same as the price of new standard motorcycle 2018 (not a used car, the used car even the 80's used car is more expensive). Apple Iphone is Apple Iphone. It doesn't need any competitors to make people around the world interested to buy one, just one.
