I love FaceID, but I can see how annoying it would be if you wear sunglasses a lot. Personally, it's a 99% success rate for me and Apple Pay and auto password entry are great. I want FaceID to see if I'm sad and it knows to automatically play some Teenage Fanclub next.

love mature markets where you can't grow so you have to charge $1k for a phone

just getting caught up on the new stuff

I'll probably buy the XR, XS Max sounds amazing but way too expensive and the extra features seem unnecessary

not really wanting to wait until October, but whatever

I haven't upgraded my phone in early 4 years (November 2014) so I'm overdue for some huge changes I don't want to deal with...but my battery sucks and it will be nice having a better camera and display. Plus the phone's processor has gone to shit and is super slow.

I’ve survived on hand me down iPhones (currently have a 6) and seeing these things cost as much as two decent computers is so like wtf how is this a business

And even the base model is like $1600 or something?
Like a phone should cost no more than an iPad. Yeah it’s got a phone in it but the screen is smaller


Yeah I know that’s not how economics work

Or are the X models just intended for the high end set and the 7s and 8s are meant for the rest of us? Is there a breakdown of sale percentage per model somewhere?

i was talking to a sprint sales rep about my upgrade eligibility and said iPhone X S Max (what a fucking terrible naming configuration) for the first time outloud, and realized this current model sounds like iPhone Excess in conversation.

I realize this point is like grandpa spam email chain level but it is kinda funny that this new $1500 phone with no real notable features is a homonym for excess

i think they're discontinuing all bar the new models, so its XS/XR or nothing for us plebs. i think i'll have to skip a generation and just hold onto my 7s for another year. $2k+ is ridiculous

The 7 and 8 are still available and got price cuts. An 8 for $599 is your best choice if you don't want a huge or super expensive phone. The new ones seem like less of a performance upgrade than previous years, so buying last year's model is a better option than it normally is.

i went ahead and switched it back

Type chrome://flags/#top-chrome-md in the address bar and press enter.

Change the toggle next to the “UI Refresh Phase 1” flag from to Disabled.

Restart your browser,
seriously.

i think the problem is actually taking care of itself. it's not like the late 00s anymore where each gen was legitimately amazing, we've def hit the smartphone tech plateau and each new year it'll just be mostly incremental spec updates. this is the first year I've actually have not had that stupid craving for a new apple phone, I even have an upgrade too, but I'm happy with my X and don't see any reason to upgrade to the XS. i just saw yesterday that the average persons upgrade cycle for a new phone has gone from 12 months to 32 months in a years time, so more people def are feeling that way

I've never owned a phone that didn't feel like it was going to shit in the 18-24 month window.

The misery of months 18-24 of phone ownership has convinced me that paying for a phone over two years while hoping to use it longer is something I never want to do again. Cash up front, an annual upgrade program, or my personal hybrid of using Google's financing but paying double every month. I will be thrilled if I get 2+ years out of my Pixel 2, but hell if I'm gonna feel stuck on it.

my iphone 7 screen is cracked and I had the opportunity to get a huawei p20 pro for 50 bucks in my contract... I am very pleased so far, battery life is amazing, the camera is amazing, android is pretty good now (my last android phone was a nexus 5) switching systems is not a deal for me as I am already invested in both of them and most good apps are free nowadays. guess my 4 friends on imessage will have to contact me on some other channel now...
