Default iPhone X

Did anyone else get one?

Yes, I am an Apple fanboy and I love this phone. A paradigm shift in technology and using face-ID with Apple Pay is just so cool.

have you seen the new Samsung advert, which takes the p*ss out the iPhone lol
i've always had an iPhone...but i'm getting sick of the constant bugs that Apple deliberately puts in the s/w upgrades, so that eventually you will have no choice but to upgrade your phone to the latest version.

Rather have a few bugs than an open operating system that is hopelessly prone to viruses and malware.

quite. the Samsung is utterly dreadful.

My S6 is finally out of contract, iphone 8 on its way... but no stock according to Etishite unless I go plus, mental. Don't want a Plus or iX - too big.

I would like a paradigm shift in technology: backwards - nothing better than just playing snake while taking a shit. Porn gets boring in a way that snake never did.

Sounds like a user problem. I like my S6 and have grown to detest my iPad: so much happier with the Galaxy tab I just replaced it with.

Default Re: iPhone X

I have an iPhone 6 and I am very much looking forward to going back to Samsung when the time comes. The only reason I haven't made the jump yet is because company pays for the iPhone and they got it for me.

I do have an excuse that should endear me to the lefties. Apple is a massive tax avoider even if strictly legal. So I'm boycotting them when I can now let's see if all the left wing youngsters will jump on board..... (I don't think they will).

That's like boycotting McDonald's by eating at Burger King

I want one. End of. My 7 is borderline perfect though, having been in a case for about 12 months there's one scratch on it and otherwise I'm finding it hard to justify nearly 5,000 dibs.

I'll find a way though. Soon.

I see the cost of the parts for the X is around £297, cost of the phone £999, and some iphone users had a slight problem after the latest update, they couldn't type the letter i.

Default Re: iPhone X

Been an apple fan boy since the first Iphone
Have had the 7Plus since about a year now and never have any lag / software issues...because I NEVER upgrade the iOS. Trust me, if you dont update, you will always be happy. But I cannot justify to myself such an expensive phone. Wait for a month and then the price should be right.
By the by I have been seriously considering getting another number only for friends and family. I found a guy who sells mint condition old phones and I want to get a motorola star tac (the flip one). So when I leave office I can just leave the work phone on the desk and have a cute sexy old school phone with me.

Default Re: iPhone X

I think you either like Apple or hate it, I am in the Hate Camp...never got on with the phones and personally think Samsung is a far better device

Apple user: The new Iphone X is out
Android User: So what`s new

Apple user: It`s got facial recognition
Android User: We have had that for four years what else is new?

Apple user: Wireless charging
Android User: We`ve had that for 2 years anything else new?

Apple user: It`s water resisitant
Android User: We`ve had that for the last 3 years anything else new?

Apple user:It`s the best display ever
Android User: The screen is supplied by Samsung, it is android technology!

Apple User: So why am I paying all this money
Android user: To fund Apples drive to catch up with Android technology!

If they have one of these i'd consider doing similar. Loved this phone.... https://www.gsmarena.com/sony_cmd_z5-133.php
