    Great, it’s like one of the only features on my iPhone X that I don’t use.

    I've made a whopping 1 animoji since getting my iPhone X on launch day... useless gimmick feature in my opinion. Shame that Apple probably spent so many resources and manpower on it, when they could have been working on something more useful.

    U mean the AMOLED displays Apple paid Samsung $2.59 billion to use?

    Yep, that's the only thing you paid with your $1000. You're not really paying your shiny new phone with best hardware and software that they can come off atm. You're awesome!

    Yes, but, this article and probably in the other articles about the fingerprint scanner, mobile payment system, etc, is/was that Samsung is "Copying Apple", in a since that "APPLE" created it and all Samsung or anyone else is doing is copying. I am just wondering, what product has apple released that they truly created, truly invented, that is changing the industry in recent years? Everything they do as well, is a copy from already existing technology. I will agree, they make it better, from the aspect of putting it on a phone or in a watch, etc. Waiting for the innovation to return to Apple. I like their products, I use their products, just waiting for the innovation to show up that has been missing for a while now.

    I give praise to Samsung for not removing the 3.5mm headphone jack but this has got to be up there in terms of stupidity.

    I feel like I'm crazy; I just really don't get this emoji\animoji bit. It must be big in Asian\Teen markets.

    Not sure how popular it is really? I see the fancy commercials, and they are pretty cool. Apple was the first on the block with it in it's phone (iPhone X only, right?). I will give you that. I don't have a iPhone x (still rocking my iP7+), so can't tell you what experience I have with it and I can't say what the other OEM's are going to do, but I am sure it will work just as good as what apple is doing.

    ps. I always like reading your comments, you have some good insight on things. <- Yes, I am sucking up...lol

    Hasn't for Apple. Settle & quietly sweep under the carpet. Both companies are quite similiar... & sketchy.

    Copy & Paste took 2 or 3 years before being implemented by Apple. Face ID, no physical home button... the list goes on & on.

    Apple didn't create the technology for facial recognition, they paid for that too. What Apple did , was applied it to emoji's, now called Animoji. This technology also, already exists in the MOVIE industry, did Apple pay for that, maybe, probably, who knows.

    Apple hypes up Animoji on 2 or 3 iOS releases now. Now Samsung is looking to follow suit. Looks like the cell phone industry has officially jumped the shark.

    Does the Honor run iOS? Will consider it if it does.
