Apple iPhone X

Postby Symbonite » Sep 12th, 2017, 11:58 am

Yawn....

Basically a over priced Note 8. It does look like they pushing more of the Apple watch now than the phone.

It seems that they are now the ones trying to catch up to Samsung and even LG.

Just catching up now.

iPhone 8 and 8+ = nothing really new except small performance upgrades and ability to do wireless charging.

iPhone X = same as iPhone 8 except the screen covers the whole face of the phone and there's no home bottom (on the face at least) as a result. Facial recognition to used to unlock.

Am I missing anything?

Nope. Other than the fact that whenever a new one comes out the old ones get real cheap. Sign a 2 year contract and an iPhone 7 will likely come free.

So because someone buys something they want, that makes them an "idiot"? It's their money, their life - no "idiots" there.

Congratulations that your "old dumbphone/flip phone" works for you. It wouldn't work for me or many, many others out there. Do I need an upgrade? No. Will I upgrade? Maybe. I'll wait until it hits the stores and take a look at it and decide for myself. If that makes me, or anyone else an "idiot", well, more power to you :up:

I have to buy my phones outright because I have a plan that's 50$per month cheaper than what they'll offer if I sign a contract for new phone. 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.

^^^ fair enough Dizzy1, shareholders truly love customers that upgrade their perfectly good working devices every September (in Apple's case).

I have both a desktop & laptop, so I don't need one in my pocket.

Off topic comment:
Other day I was waiting for light to change, observed a person waking on the sidewalk while doing something on their phone. Walk right into street light post (did not appear be hurt), but did look around to see if anyone seen it. Once I knew the person was not hurt, I did have one hell of good laugh. It's truly sad how much we have aloud a device run our lives.

I remember the days when people did that with a newspaper glued to their face.

I went out for breakfast this morning, was by myself so while I was waiting for my food, I had my phone out and reading some headlines from The LA Times. There was an older couple sitting across from me - both of them had their faces buried in newspapers - not a word was said between them. Eventually, their food came, they put their papers down and looked over and made a silly comment about t me being "addicted" to my phone. I laughed, once they started eating, papers came back up and again, not a word was said between them.

To be honest, I don't know what's funnnier - those addicted to their devices or those addicted to pointing out people on their devices. We've always been distracted in one way or another, the only thing that's changed is the media format.

Gordon, at home I don't have (or need) a desktop or a laptop, so what's wrong with buying a smartphone? What makes your choice morally superior to mine?
