IPhone 8 is exactly the same as the 7, almost laughable. IPhone X is a carbon copy of Galaxy S8/Note 8

Pretty much!

Honestly, I think I'm done with Apple. How restrictive they've become is really pissing me off.

The most interesting thing for me was the facial scanning. 2 Years ahead of the competition in that regard.
Look I finally got a profile picture :D

$999 is not the same as £999. Let's not exploit the Brits please, Apple xo

Also are you seriously telling me people nowadays are willing to spend several hundred pounds to avoid the momentary inconvenience that is typing a 4-digit pin? Am I supposed to be excited, because all I'm feeling is despair?

The X looks a thousand times better than the s8 :err: The iPhone X is honestly the sexiest phone I've seen in years

I'm also pissed off at how expensive Apple is, but I'm way more pissed off at how horrible other OS are. Android is horrid.

Honestly, I switched to Samsung last time around and I'm going back this time. Beyond my preferences in the software and OS and such, there's just something about an iPhone. So much smoother to use and just seems nicer. I don't know if I will spring for the X or just go for the 8 Plus (Or wait till next year), but I am definitely going back to Apple. I gave Android a fair chance and just wasn't happy enough to stick with them.

I'm considering going to Android next time, don't tell me this :err:

What I hate about the iPhone is how quickly you get one and it feels outdated. I'm on the 6, and it feels like yesterday I got it TBH. But I can feel it slowing down after every update now. It's almost like they force you to update. It happened with the iPhone 4 I had as well.

They force you to upgrade and I hate it.

That's odd cause my 5s still works only marginally less fast than it did in the beginning. Sure it randomly restarts itself once a day, the camera is full of dust and completely broke down once (which luckily could be solved by force updating), which is why I'm starting to save up for a replacement, but the phone is 4 years old, which is ancient by smartphone terms, and still works a lot faster than my mom's medium range phone.

The reason I'm not absolutely disgusted investing that much in a phone is because my current iphone served me really well for almost 4 years.

Got the Galaxy S8 last time around, after being a die hard apple fan since the iPhone 3 release I love it.

Same tbh, I have a 5s and I really havent been able to justify upgrading whilst it still works perfectly fine, although it also has been randomly restarting lately :rip: I'll probably upgrade around Christmas time.
