    Not funny, not interesting, not talented. Oh but he's bashing Apple, so maybe he'll be successful.

    My sister just bought the 8 to replace her 6s. She likes the display a lot. For her, the X is a bit too big and not worth the extra $300. I think she’ll be happy with the 8.

    One note she did have was that the new gold is closer to rose gold than the previous gold. She’s fine with it but is not sure her husband would agree.

    Summarise?

    Incidentally, this is the guy that put out a 30 min rant video on Kanoa wireless earphones and they pulled the plug on the company right after before they shipped much of anything.

    Not saying he wasn't justified, just context.

    Clickbait videos to gain views that is not "Funny". There really isn't anything humorous about these videos, unless you are One That appreciates the Apple snark comments about the latest iPhone.

    It’s far from funny.

    I wonder if you’d be posting his vids if he was bashing the X... :rolleyes: I highly doubt it.

    Couldn’t get through it. Wasn’t much of a technical commentary of value

    I'm confused about this fascination with complete redesigns, and why there's a population of people that feels Apple, and other organizations need to continue to change them. The same accessories that fit the iPhone 6, fits the iPhone 8. Why is this a bad thing? Apps that took forever to update for the iPhone 6 new aspect ratio continue to work beautifully on the iPhone 8.

    Dell hasn't changed the look of the XPS line in years. Microsoft has kept the same look of the Surface Pro line for three generations now. Thinkpads have been looking the same forever. However Apple keeps the same overall design of a device for a few generations, and now they're evil? What a stupid argument. If Apple keeps the design the same, people complain. If Apple tries something new, and creates a new device (i.e. iPhone X), people complain (#ChinGate). It's all dumb, and while I understand it's great for this guy to generate views, his rant is ridiculous, and lacks substance.

    Buy what you want. I'm waiting for the X. However to be ignorant and not recognize the massive internal tech changes between the 6 and the 8, means I just can't respect this guy in any way. He can continue to hate on the consistency of the design, while new owners of the 8/8+ enjoy arguably the best phone on the planet. Shrug

    The guy in the video is an ignorant fool. And anyone subscribing to his lack of facts and logic mentality should consider a checkup.

    He is very funny but honestly he tells the truth. Apple is like the richest company and have all the smartest guys in the world, there is no way their best plan is having a same looking phone for 4 years, and after 30 days the iphone 8 becomes an old iphone and the newest iphone X comes with a "M Head" that covers up some areas of whatever you will read on screen.

    I've seen countless occasions where people say they'd buy a refresh of this or that phone with upgraded internals and camera. The love for the SE is a perfect example of this.

    Honestly, why is it so important that the newest iPhone look radically different from the last iPhone? The design is good, it works, you don’t have to buy a whole new suite of accessories if you had the prior phone.

    How many people wish Apple wouldn’t have iterated away from the iPhone 4 design?

    Yeah he does make some valid points - if you care about that sort of thing.

    But... See... Right now looking around my place at electronics and stuff that look like their counterparts from 20 or 30 or more years ago... Hardly any change on the outside.

    Microwave. Stove. Fridge. Dishwasher. Washing machine. Cordless phone. Dryer. Printer. Guitar. Bike. Router. vacuum. Speakers.

    I mean the list goes on.Not sure why people are so obsessed with cell phones and that they must look more futuristic or minimalist every year or it's a failure on some level. Even most new cars out on the roads look like cars from 30 years ago minus some led's and sleek lines...

    I like when he put 2 phones up and ask you to tell the difference. It looks exactly the same, so true :D

    Agree! The iPhone 6-8 is a great design. Changing something doesn't necessarily make it better. I like some of the new features of the X, but the 8 is a better choice for me because of size.

    These YouTubers. Sigh. Even one I was starting to like over the past year took a cheap shot at the iPhone 8/8Plus. I mean the whole video was a cheap shot, it wasn't a snarky comment here and there. I was really disappointed in him. He dismissed the phone without even opening the damned box. Of course he was rewarded for his cleverness by all the haters who smell blood in the water over Apple's 2017 releases.

    I'd rather read the comments and observations of regular people here who actually own the devices to use. Who have spent money to own and use the phone as their daily driver, not review to amass followers and sponsors. Who had to make a decision based on real world needs, not tech nerd cred. Who have to live with the actual shortcomings that impact their daily use, not what they think everyone will agree the shortcomings should be.

    Even my husband is going the tech geek route of "IPhone 8 Plus isn't new enough" We are having some interesting conversations about what I personally see in the IPhone 8/8Plus to validate its existence against the coming glory of the iPhone X. However, I accept that I myself can not make a valid evaluation of the X until I actually hold it in my hand. I'd love to get an IPhone 8 tomorrow but I know I can't dismiss the iPhone X this early in the game. I can disparage the idea of a notch based on reasonable observations of the materials we have to look at now, but the reality of actually using the device can blow all that reasoning away.

    So I can see no point to rewarding rants and encouraging more of this noise to clog the flow of information.

    I tuned out within the first minute. It looks the same. That’s the big negative. Really?

    Maybe that’s just a compliment to the timeless beauty and functionality of that design. Plus, I’m pretty sure that a market research machine of the nearly trillion dollar company is better able to determine if the iPhone 8 should or should not exist.

    It seems like every idiot with a YouTube channel and a high school degree is now a subject matter expert because a bunch of imbeciles chose to subscribe to their ranting nonsense. Get a life... and a real job.
