Sure, you can pull the ‘specs’ card with a 12MP iphone camera, vs a Samsung 12MP camera and could think they may be equivalent until you research which imaging chip is used and how it is used. The iPhone 8-plus takes much better pictures than any phone in existence... and the iPhone X camera will be even better. The Samsung camera in the words of Jim Carrey ; ‘a worthless steaming pile of cow dung, figuratively speaking.’

And the vast majority of picture takers don't know the difference between a pixel and a peck.

Good zinger. But the iphone takes better pics. If I wanted to take better pics I would buy a camera.

Exactly. My phone is great for getting a quick picture but when I am travelling it doesn't come with me, I take 2 cameras.
A point and shoot and a Canon with 50X zoom. Both together and my phone cost less than an iPhone.

So a mobile phone with a cheap crappy camera is a feature. Samsung should advertise it as such: Note 8, now with a cheap crappy camera in order to save you money, now only $1299.00

So youre buying a Note 8 specifically for its camera? The specs look pretty darn good for a camera phone.

It's a phone, and a camera, and a computer and about a million other things... what more do you want? As far as the specs are concerned it's actually a powerful phone. I'll stick to my android though.

So having the IOS 11 update, I have to say I'm not very pleased with it. Lots and lots of bugs in it that have yet to be resolved. Very unfortunate, but I'm sure it'll get resolved at some point in time.

I noticed a couple of ads in classifieds with very high price tags for the X.
So I check Apple Canada could not find any of these prices for that phone.

That may be - but its still (for me) a more pleasant and satisfying user experience than the competition :biggrin:

So how is the $1300cdn phone with the typing error and green lines as well as freezing in the cold working out for y'all?

Seems like that Apple has a couple of worms in it. :200:

I played around with the X in the store today. Not having the home button was actually quite nice - the swipe gesture felt quite natural. Definitely a few things to get used to - and as Bsuds pointed out, there probably are a bunch of bugs in it - as the Mrs. said, it'll be wise to hold off for awhile. Who am I to argue? :biggrin:

Found Costco has the best deals for this however if someone wants to rid themselves of their horribly ancient iPhone 7 to get the newest I may be willing to help you out.




Im in same boat. I buy outright. Usually off castanet classifieds. Id rather put out 300 to 500 dollars. One time. Than have my bill go up 30 or 40 a month for ever
