I will never ever buy a notched phone

I've been waiting to replace my s7 with an s10 in Feb and they just released that it's going to have the notch's annoying cousin, a pinhole for the selfie cam. Ugh, I'm so disappointed. I don't at all understand this bezel free display obsession.

I'll take a look when it comes out but I'm going to have to start looking for a replacement  :frown:

I thought the point about how prices have continued to increase despite phones not changing much was interesting. Contrast with TVs.

FaceID was a game changer. I forgot TouchID even existed until right before I started this post.

I am a noob on phone stuff, but to me it seems that with Apple you pay a premium for stuff that has a very strong history of working without issue.  It seems similar to  Camaro or Charger owners bitching about how German and Japanese sports cars are over priced....about how they have so much more horse power so why bother paying more.

Different strokes for different folks.

they have a history of things going wrong and pretending everything is alright.

Apple has confirmed to The Verge that some of its 2018 iPad Pros are shipping with a very slight bend in the aluminum chassis. But according to the company, this is a side effect of the device’s manufacturing process and shouldn’t worsen over time or negatively affect the flagship iPad’s performance in any practical way. Apple does not consider it to be a defect.

imagine paying $1800 for a bent tablet :lol:

I have the iphone forever thing from sprint where I get a new iphone whenever the best one comes out every year. my x is good but I feel like I'm doing bad to myself if I don't make them send me the newer one for whatever reason. so I'm going to do it even though I probably can't tell the difference. also my wife who for sure can't. also her sister because I pay her rough ridin' bill for some reason.
