iPhone reviews are all the same. Here, let me give you the basic template.

- best iPhone ever
- price will be too much for many
- best performance on the market
- discuss whatever this year’s flashy new gimmick is
- discuss the one annoying thing that many people won’t like, and acknowledge that it is annoying, but say that it’s not a deal breaker (eg. Loss of headphone jack, or the notch)
- Bottom line: if you have last year’s model you don’t need to upgrade. If you have an older model you should.

Don’t think it’s worth going from x to XS but if you want bigger screen then to me that’s worth it

I think the XR will be very popular

So is it that apps need to be updated for the Max screen? In the verge review he said XS and Max display the same amount of content just slightly larger

Appreciate the early insights, but do others note certain reviewers taking joy in poking fun at the iPhones? & it's not from an independent viewpoint - it's like an intentional mocking to satisfy their prominent anti-Apple market? MKBHD for eg. I have plenty of respect for him, but he could be a bit more professional when it comes to stating flaws in iPhones imo.

One thing I listen for in reviews are a product's negative aspects, but it's like watching the news - you don't want a bias/emotional slant on the reporting, just give it to me straight.

I still thought his unboxing was good for the most part.

Most think the pixel 2 camera is far better which means the camera is already behind again.

I'll stick with my X

The verge thinks it’s still better camera wise but they have always been critical when it comes to Apple

That said photos are always subjective. Depends on the user
You should compare their live-blogging comments of an iPhone event to those of the pixel launch.

It’s night and day.
