    What have you been smoking. It's not that hard to learn your mother how to use those gestures. Imagine a couple years ago that your mother would been using a smartphone. People forget how easily humans can learn new things. Even your mother probably. From tech perspective it's great how Apple are using the full screen.

    So after three generations of more of the same, Greedy Timmy decides to jack up the prices.


    Nothing gives a middle finger like a $999 iPhone


    Thanks, Timmy.

    Looks like LG came out with the edge to edge first, and Samsung came out with the facial recognition first in the S8.

    Though not a surprise as Samsung and LG are making the displays for Apple.

    People use EIP plans now, a grand isn't much when it's on EIP.

    Iphone X is a bit of a dissapointment really. Yes it has great technology, but its not going to revolutionize the smartphone. Its still a black monolith and the top notch is a bit annoying.

    The name is awkward too, where is iphone 9? What will they do next? Iphone 9 in 2018, or iphone 11. Or iphone 9 and then iphone 10 but not X

    Does wireless charging mean you can't have a case?

    It's impressive. But when you look at the jumps from 3GS to 4, 4s to 5... this is no bigger jump from the 7.

    Apple have basically bundled what is essentially an evolutionary product and positioned it as revolutionary with an unjustified price tag.

    I've had iPhones for 8 years and there was nothing today I want to spend my money on.

    Good products but not anything groundbreaking. Sorry, iPhone X is no big deal.

    Guys please tell me that the full screen video cut out is a joke! Content behind the top notch is simply not visible! Every video will be overlayed.... this is insane!!!!!!!!!

    Apply needs a new person in the naming department. I don't think it can get any more confusing. iPhone 8 and iPhone 10 WTF why not call it as it appears iPhone X ('ex') that sounds WAY better.

    Cannot, cannot, canNOT believe Jony Ive thought that notch was elegant and a good idea. Steve is rolling over in his grave.

    Best iPhone we have done so far. No **** sherlock!

    Videos look very awkward with the black blob on the side. Who wants to watch movie with that blob?

    I don't think Steve would be proud of current lineup of TEN iPhones. He was very much against of having too many models on sale.
