    I'm not going to be dramatic about this, but Apple is dead to me.

    Okay, they were not sophisticated enough to imbed a touch id button under the screen so instead they go with Face ID. That's fine. But don't take us for fools by using Face ID as one of the X's big ticket items. I feel robbed. We already had a security measure in place, so what do they do, use an alternative security measure as a big new thing to come to iphone because they have hardly anything else to talk about, they have run out of ideas, there is nothing new with the X

    Wireless charging. Yea great. Now iphone is only 2 years behind every other phone.

    Oled display. Seriously is Apple that bereft of ideas that they have to talk about what every other ****ing smartphone in 2017 has?

    Better camera and more powerful chip. This is what you can expect to be the big feature next year because they will have nothing new for next year so expect a better camera and a more powerful chip next year too.

    This was supposed to be the biggy. This year Apple was supposed to come out of its post Steve Jobs shell and deliver. **** them, all they did was another incremental upgrade, and I'm talkking about the iphone x.

    Where's the big softeare features? Still the same boring as ******* grid of apps, no ability to customise, not even split screen multitasking, it's 2017 for crying out loud. - "the most advanced mobile phone operating system" - yea right, pig's farking ass it is.

    Time to start looking at the Note 8 because Apple is dead to me after this keynote.

    Well Tim Cook's visionless Apple is finally showing its results.

    Ok, but then why post this:

    Seems like overly dramatic to me.

    And all of the leaks basically described what the phone was going to be to a "T" so this shouldn't have surprised or disappointed you.



    Actually Samsung phones are excellent, and all of the features of the X have been on the **** Samsung phone for years.

    Is it too much to ask for the iphone to deliver something original and new? Iphone 4s was the last time that happened. And piece of **** Samsung??? Go check out the reviews of the Note 8, its capabilities leave the X looking like a dinosaur.

    Really, why do people take it so personally when someone doesn't like the same phone as them??

    That being said, I don't know why people need to make a thread about not liking a phone either. o_O

    These companies have conditioned us to tie these devices to our very self identity. When you think about it, what phone people like and why shouldn't matter any more than their favourite colour.

    What would you like to see new added to the iPhone? Smartphones have reached a peak where they do everything most people want them to do. Companies still come out with new gimmicks to sell people on upgrades, but they are getting close to new announcements being about as exciting as new appliances being announced.

    Until 6 months from now when it starts freezing and randomly restarting. That is what Androids do. I love the idea of Android but in practice, they suck after 6 months of ownership. The "walled garden" approach from Apple creates a much more fluid, seamless experience.

    Not to mention that even the 7 Plus runs circles around the Note in terms of everyday performance and that gap will only increase with the release of the X/8 Plus.

    I still love and will use Apple products. However I am a bit disappointed by today's offerings.

    So much so I'm willing to keep using my broken iPhone 6 Plus for yet another year.

    Really? The iPhone X is about as different as I can imagine an iPhone being after 10 years.

    Note 8 capabilities? You mean like how it's performance is matched by that of the 2 year old iPhone 6s?

    Oh, IDK.
    I had a working HTC Touch Pro running Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro from May 2009 to July 2013 when I passed it on to someone so they could keep their plan. It worked pretty well, despite being dropped several times and once kicked accidentally on a concrete sidewalk for 10 feet.

    My iPhone 5 on the other hand has been replaced three times since September 2012.

    On the third hand my 6s+ has been solid for two years.

    Guess it just depends on what you get.

    Well to be honest I expected pretty much what was announced so no surprises there. What I find highly insulting is all the stuff the have and they act like they are the first, paving the way for innovation and “defining the future of smartphone” when frankly everything seen here had appeared in other devices,
    Let’s take a few examples:
    OLED screens, really? Samsung has had it in their phones since the S2 probably
    Edge to edge screen: again let’s look at Android phones
    Wireless charging: same as above
    “Revolutionary” Face ID: Windows says hello, same technology, mix of infrared with standard camera, can recognize you in the dark.
    The iPhone X is a cool device, is what the iPhone should have been at least last year, but don’t come and try and fool anyone pretending you are innovating in every area. You are not.

    And the premium price, the industry is going nuts charging so much for phones you replace every other year, and they are getting away with it because we keep buying.

    :D after prowling around a little, post-keynote, this is when I usually take a little vacation from even looking at this forum, just so I don't get a permanent vacation from the modsis by making comments about the commenters. The iPhone threads, between the time of a keynote and the start of pre-orders, sure do tend to make the PRSI forum look like a nap zone.

    I'll just say that Apple is not dead to me yet. I liked what i saw in the keynote of the series 3 watch and the iPhone 8 anc X a lot. But, iPad upgrade is next on my list.

    And so, back to the nap zone for moi.

    Rule the OP needs to follow: Don't ever get caught being too emotionally invested in a for-profit company, unless you're one of the execs.

    It's just a tech company. The products aren't "magical" no matter how many times Tim Cook says so. It's stuff, and "stuff" is not as important as you think.

    Take a few deep breaths. Have an adult beverage. Get laid. Do whatever it takes to calm yourself over this colossal disappointment and realize in the end it matters very little.
