Also has a sticky out camera lens which will be a right pain id imagine


The lens protrudes on the 7 plus too and it's fine.

If I wasn't on the upgrade program I wouldn't bother but if I can get the X for no extra monthly fee then it's calm.


Does it? Makes it look ugly imo

Slightly yeah, I agree not sure why they don't embed it, must be performance related?

I always buy a case for my phone so it doesn't affect me....

They have Optical zoom as well, the lens needs a bit of space to telescope.

SIGS, EVERYTHING SIGS.

no one needs a £1000+ phone ffs. 



It's fucking mental. £1000 and the only new thing you're really getting is the ability to unlock your phone with your boat. Superb. 
 
Each to their own and that.




They should have a cutout of me in the Apple marketing offices, I lap this shit up.

it's nice bit of kit...biggest step forward for an iphone for a good few years... but the price is pure madness. plenty of people will pay it though so you can't really blame apple. something's worth what people will pay for it.

Biggest step forward for an iphone isn't saying much, they are always well behind introducing features Samsung already have

Bought this instead https://oneplus.net/uk/oneplus-5 . Fuck paying over a grand for a phone.


How you finding it?


Got it today and love it so far. Absolutely rapid but then it should be, it's got the same processor as the s8 and 8gb of ram, which is as much as my macbook pro. Battery is way better and screen is a more convenient size than my previous nexus. Best part is tho that it doesn't cost a fucking grand.

Yeah it's overkill really but wasn't much more to upgrade from 6gb and came with 128gb over 64

the new wireless charging feature in the iphone 8 and iphone x is pretty slick (although i'm sure the simpsons did it first though...)
 
won't be long before coffee shops, bars, etc just have them everywhere to charge any device

Some places already have them as available on Android for about a decade now

Anyone that bangs on about Apple being cutting edge is kidding themselves.

They are basically products for pricks like me and Mal with too much disposable income and no willpower lol.

That's like saying you wouldn't know how to use a Samsung tv because you've got an LG, it's not exactly complicated! Open app, use app. If you can use iTunes then you'll be able to use anything as that is the most unintuitive software I've ever used.

The iPhone X also adds support for wireless charging.
"Apple chose Qi wireless charging," noted Ian Fogg, from the IHS Markit consultancy.
"It was the right decision to use a standard because Apple users will benefit from widely available charge pads."
 
 
That is literally the least Steve Jobs thing Apple have ever come out with. He is spinning in his grave right now.

There are things I like a lot, iOS is great and it somehow feels more secure than android though I'm not sure whether there's much truth in that. I hate iTunes with a passion though, I don't like Apple in general much more. What's the point in shelling out 700 on the 8 just to feel like I've cheaped out and got the pov version, might as well stick with what I've got.

Think I'll get my battery replaced and reassess the situation in 12 months.

itunes was one of the main reasons I started to look away from an iphone.... as well as being counter intuitive and lacking even the most basic features (just storing files in memory, torrents, putting videos on) it was the most clunky and memory intensive program ever and would often crash. Things have probably moved on a bit since then but I refuse to believe that using that godforsaken app can be simpler than dragging and dropping stuff on android....absolutely hated it.

Yeah it's sole purpose seems to be to make you so frustrated trying to get your files onto your phone that you give up and buy new ones from the store. I'm sure that if I spent the time learning how to work it properly I would get the hang of it but the last two times I've bought an iPhone I've spent two days tearing my hair out then after eventually getting it to work kept the same music on there for the whole time I've had the phone as I'm scared to go there again.

This is definitely the nail in the coffin for me, gonna jump ship.

Yep same here. I jumped after the iPhone 4. Price, lack of ease of usability (eg drag and drop), iTunes, battery life and no extendable storage all contributed to me jumping to android, which just feels altogether more user friendly and malleable.
