    It would have been worse if they had just released the 8 since it barely has any upgrades over the 7

    Agreed! People would have been screaming "Where's the new 10th anniversary edition!" What's with calling it 8 instead of 7S/7S+. Is it because Samsung has the S8?

    Yeah, It looked empty.

    And this probably was a drop of sweat, knowing they F**d up with the "notch" :oops:

    I tend to not agree with Pirillo on many things, this included. But I get his concerns.

    Not a fan of the notch, but here's the silver lining - less of this:

    "My new iPhone had ONE dark pixel. Forced to return it SEVEN times to get a good one".

    Can't imagine they'll go anywhere near an iPhone X ;)

    Makes some decent points but not sure how he can claim the User Experience is going to be a dumpster fire without actually having been a user of this phone. Comparing that to drinking piss makes his points even less relevant.

    Speculation. Some are surmising the X don’t do landscape mode. We’ll see.

    I find this very interesting as with an OLED screen apple easily could have hidden the notch and still given the phone a very cool look. I'm sure they debated this for a while. My only guess is that they really wanted to show a more bezel-less phone with the screen filling all 4 rounded corners, with the same radii that have always defined the shape of the iPhone. Even if that means a notch is always present.

    Plus, going with the hidden notch gives the effect of a small bezel on the top and bottom and smaller radii for the screen corners, resulting in a much more samsung/LG looking phone.

    The guy has some great insights at times, but for me can be arrogant and grating.

    I agree wholeheartedly with his examples though :)

    Agreed. If you can get past him, his points are quite valid and thought-provoking.

    It's a new device, they'll make refinements over time. I'm waiting for next year's model

    I'm sure it will, considering that Apple's Human Interface Guidelines specify how landscape applications should work.

    And it's nothing like that strange animation someone cooked up.

    You'll buy the phone with the notch, then you'll buy the “new” “upgrade” without the notch next year (or in 2 years!).

    Well, if Chris doesn’t like it, I guess I should base my decision to own on how he feels, instead of making up my own mind when the phone is released.

    Hopefully, but something as glaring as this, is both surprising and disappointing. I've already stated, it doesn't bother me too much but seeing the video and seeing the complaints here, I have to agree with the sentiment.

    Its very unApple like to roll something out that isn't a polished product. The first example given in the video (around the 17 minute mark) shows how it could have looked and totally masked the front facing cameras.

    Gone are the days that Jobs or another executive would pull our a jewelers loupe and examine each pixel placement.

    You do know it doesn't do that right? Posting that stupid gif makes people think its actually like that.

    All content is suppose to be inset into the safe area of the display. So something like that won't happen. The notch is suppose to be ignored so when you inset and say a line for a table would just flow under the notch.

    I truly think that while that would have worked quite easily with an OLED screen, Apple wanted a more unique look, including the visible notch. Otherwise it would look like a Samsung or LG:

    I said a few months ago they should delay this phone. From airpower not being ready, to touch id under the screen not being ready, it just felt really rushed.

    But their stock would've plummeted
