Moto Master, 02 Oct 2018>>Recycled design and still the most innovativeFunny coz Note 9 is a recycled Note 8 too but they charge more. Same camera, same display, no Android Pie. QC 2.0 on 2018,Lol
androfox, 02 Oct 2018I have once spent 1500€ on a laptop. It was made by apple. Why did I do pay 1500€? People told... moreI have recently bought two laptops. 1. HP Spectre x360 15 inch 4K display, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD, i7 8th Gen processor for $1450 2. Lenova Flex 5 (refurb) 15 inch 4K display, 16 GB RAM, 1 TB HDD, 128 GB SSD, i7 8th Gen processor for $950
Together I nearly spent $2300.
In my place ONE iPhone XS MAX 512 GB is sold for nearly $2200! That's just for comparison
I have once spent 1500€ on a laptop. It was made by apple. Why did I do pay 1500€? People told me it was "the best", and truly, it was a good laptop, but it wasnt the best, average at best. Same goes for the iphone. I would never buy one (the macbook experience was too hard) - since people claim you get "the best" but what you get is only average *hold it* considering the price tag. What people get spending 1500€+ is maybe better, but not thrice as good as 400€ phones offer today. Why do people buy apple still? Peopl got too much money and no other problems to care about.
The screen is awesome. Samsung's AMOLED displays are definitely the best out there. Battery is life is decent, but not great. The performance in the other hand is superb, as expected. It blows everything else away! What a true beast! The 2019 Android flagship chipsets better up their game.
The camera is good, but I don't see it on par with the best of Android cameras. And finally, stereo audio recording, after years of neglect. Well, better late than never.
Apple has never been generous in terms of features, but removing the 3.5 mm jack is still a deal-breaker, even two after it was dropped from the iPhone 7. See, even the reviewers can't conduct their audio quality test because of it. And the less said about the price, the better.
My friend bought iPhone X. After 3 months he wants to try S9+ becuase of the features but when he starting using the S9+. He is seriously wanted to go back to iPhone X since day 1. After 3 months he sold his S9+ and bought iPhone X again. And then he promises to himself not to buy samsung/android phones again. Soon we will upgrade to XS Max whatever happens. According to him, face ID is more reliable and faster than Iris Scanner/Facescan. Sometimes the iris scanner is not working properly when he dont put out his eyeglasses. Not using fingerprints (sweaty hands).
Its not always the name of the phone but the things the phone can do. Apps is very important too. Many important apps that is not availble in Android.
Darshada, 02 Oct 2018Yeah, I guess you know the guys personally to say that...
Like DxO is paid by every tech comp... more"But any problem is unacceptable, even for a 700+ phone. But at least it doesn't explode or sells your datas, which is more of a problem."
>Any< problem is unacceptable. Your words. Not others. Rendered your own rest of that line irrelevant. Contradictory here is an understatement.
When it becomes "acceptable" just because Apple usually fix flaws in days, then there is no incentive for them to improve QA. Even if they're charging the highest RRP ceiling in the industry?
Yeah unacceptable.. then acceptable? /lel
I'm honestly impressed with iPhone's new camera and its Smart HDR processing. In most daylight scenario I ended up choosing the samples from iPhone XS over those from Note 9. In lower lighting conditions, I feel like the result is rather mixed. There were scenes where iPhone managed to capture sharper details than both Note 9 and P20 Pro, but as it gets darker those two were quite a bit better. P20 Pro's significantly larger sensor and (ironically)oversharpening is actually helping a lot in those darker situations, and while Note 9 has similar smearing issue as iPhone XS, it seems that more advanced frame stacking algorithm is managing to retain details better than iPhone.
I think the perfect smartphone camera would be the combination of P20 Pro's hardware with iPhone's software algorithm in good lighting and Note's in low light. It would be so great if it came true!
and still the most innovative
Whackcar, 02 Oct 2018The difference between Marques (MKBHD) and Lewis (UnboxTheraphy) is that Marques is a paid App... moreiPhone X, XS,XS Max are no more just $1000 + mobiles, they are infact $1300 - $2200 plus accessories, Apple Care, subscriptions etc....that's ransom for most
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2018some of the negative comments are valid if we must be honest. Sure apple made decent phone wit... moreHonestly why do u care so much to write a long reply when it doesn't affect your life at all? Ur not going to buying it so why do u care? I don't really own any pets and I don't intend to but I don't go on websites getting angry Bcuz the price to buy kittens has gone up :D
Anyway back to phones, these battery and beauty things are minor issues which would be rectified. Almost every device when released will have some minor issues which then gets fixed. Every brand has this to deal with whether it's ssung or Google pixel devices or any other. People still buy these devices at high prices when having to suffer until an update is released too. Are u saying nobody should buy devices which have some software issues which can be fixed pretty quickly? Then nobody should buy Samsung or Google pixel or lg or any other device if that's what ur saying. These small issues on iphones will quickly get fixed in a matter of days.
Also in the review alot of good things are mentioned too and once the errors are quickly fixed then everyone with this device will be happy just like the review states.
They should continue their iphone 8/8+ design. But smaller the chin and benzel. I love their classic iphone looks
Whackcar, 02 Oct 2018The difference between Marques (MKBHD) and Lewis (UnboxTheraphy) is that Marques is a paid App... moreYeah, I guess you know the guys personally to say that...
Like DxO is paid by every tech company on Earth too... It's just bad faith.
I don't say I am on Apple's side. But any problem is unacceptable, even for a 700+ phone. But at least it doesn't explode or sells your datas, which is more of a problem. The apples problem will be corrected through an iOS update, and it affects just a few numbers, not all of them (at least about the charging, but the beauty is not a problem in itself). Apple sells millions and millions of them. There is an error margin, 20.000 of them having a problem is not a BIG deal if they sell 20 millions, it represents 0,10%... Just put that in perspective, you cannot compare it to other phone manufacturers, Apple is in its own bubbled-league.
Darshada, 02 Oct 2018To all of you haters and ignorants... Better than Unbox Therapy...
The only tech reviewer you... moreThe difference between Marques (MKBHD) and Lewis (UnboxTheraphy) is that Marques is a paid Apple shill, so his opinion doesn't matter in the first place.
I'm not saying Lewis is unbiased. He usually leans in favor of Android, but that's still better than being a shill.
Now, Michael Fisher (MrMobile) is a very fair and balanced guy who actually knows what he's talking about. He still has his flaws, but he's better than these two.
And the iPhone XS and XS Max have many problems on launch, which is downright unacceptable for a $1000+ phone.
The Note 7 explosions were not a small deal, Samsung had to recall their product from the market.
OnePlus also had to apologize and rectify.
To all of you haters and ignorants... Better than Unbox Therapy...
The only tech reviewer you should listen to.
Stop taking so many selfies, it would be better for your ego... x)
There's worse than that...
Exploding Galaxy Note? Ahem... Yes... Not that a big deal...
OnePlus collecting datas without consent? Yeah... that's fine...
Hey apple, you came up with the notch, why do you hide it with this wallpaper? Afraid of Find X and Nex S? Yes, there are brands that innovate and it's not apple.
kalel, 02 Oct 2018Nothing new. Comments filled with hate comments not a single positive mentioned. :D
Regardles... moresome of the negative comments are valid if we must be honest. Sure apple made decent phone with the first Iphone X, but these ones regardless of their new tech in it misses on the basics of what we use the phone for. One of the big ones is the charging issue majority of the phones have. Sure not all the phones, but a lot of them have a charging issue and lets be honest here... to pay that amount of money for a device that is giving one of the biggest issues a phone can have which is the battery or possibly the device itself is major issue. Think of the Samsung Noe 7 battery disaster. It was even unacceptable back then cause people pay good money for these devices and you know Apples phones are much more expensive so they shouldn't having these types of issues. Also have you seen the selfie camera issue? Its not a as big as the battery one but its an issue none the less. Why would they have a beauty mode enabled on the phone where you CANT deactivate it?
These are valid issues cause no one wants to constantly look like a doll. At least all android phones gives you the option of not using it. So no. Im not an apple hater, but im a hater of paying a ton of money which you worked hard for only to get treated in some way like you forced to use a phone a certain way. Oh and the battery issue is just a huge thing to me. Do some research and you will see. I'm not saying the phone is completely bad. Its a good phone, but that battery issue is a big one to me.
Shootergod, 02 Oct 2018This reviewer is either too lenient when he writes about cons of iPhone.
So,please allow me t... moreI think the reviewer is way too lenient. I agree with everything you say. Also He/she doesn't address the latest issues with the phone like the charging issue and no way to deactivate the beautify mode that is in the selfie camera.
For this crazy prices you pay for these phones, there shouldn't be such issues.
fast but camera cant compete with s9,s9+ ,note 9 and huawei p20pro . Nothing special ,this is phone only for ifans
* Not much of a upgrade compare to my Iphone X except for the size and CPU..
In my humble opinion, for most iPhone X owner is not a good upgrade unless you wanted it for the size and has $1xxx extra's to blow away!
