    Does the iPhone X live up to the hype?

    Is it worth the $1000 price tag?

    Is the iPhone 8 a big enough upgrade to not go unnoticed?

    Does anyone except hipster Apple fangays even care about these devices or are they out of everyone's price range?

              No way in hell I'm ever paying $1000 for a phone.

              Lightweight

                Why is it 1079€ Here?
                1000$ is much less.

                      LOL, it's an equivalent of $1400 here in India for the base iPhone X 64GB model that sells for $1000 in the US.

                          all those features are have trivial effect to your day-to-day activities. what you want in technological innovation is to make daily living much more comfortable and having important features like live electronic hack or 2-way charging or mainframe-level storage (ok I admit those are just fucking ripoffs but definitely worth $1k). the advanced camera is just so useless but of course the applef@gs will just eat up the novelty appeal because that's how people are.

                          capitalism wins!

                            Oled is not an insignificent advance, but on a screen that small? You aren't going to notice image quality increase cus it has a huge resolution for the size already (yes I get resolution isn't the difference between oled and regular led). I don't know how much battery it'll save.

                            Facial recognition is kind of a gimmick since we already have the thumbprint thing to unlock. Ok hold it up to your face and it unlocks. Cool, but now I need to touch my phone anyway to do anything. Just as easy to touch with a finger and start swiping, plus I don't always want my phone to unlock when looking at it to like read a text.

                            Other stuff, the charge pad is cool but again is it really needed?

                            The only reason I went from a 5s to a 7 was cus it was a 16 gb 5s that kept running out of storage.

                            Then my wife went from a super crappy 5c to a 7 for same reasons. We considered the 6, but the 6 was 32gb or 128gb and the 128 version was only like $50 less than the base 7 with same memory, I don't remember exactly, but for anything over 32gb the 7 wasn't much more money than the se or 6.

                              My 130$ phone does everything I need anyway.. Why'd I buy a 1000$ phone from "Apple".

                              Potato Marshal

                                How else are you suppose to show off? Even though most phones look alike...

                                  I'd probAbly buy a better PC. Then, at least I wouldn't need to blame my pc for my losses..

                                        @Skim, that's actually cheap. In euro it costs like 1300+ here in norway

                                              Apple products are literally never worth it for the money, and you can always find cheaper alternatives that do the job better, unless, of course, you need to run very specific software that only runs on mac.

                                              In case of everything else, there are cheaper alternatives that do the job either equally well, or better, while still not being locked into the whole "apple" software monopoly to begin with.

                                              Anomalina~

                                                We have to try to look at this objectively instead of being either an extreme hater, and criticizing every decision the company makes and complain about lack of features and high prices, or being a total prejudiced fangay, loving every product that comes out and upgrading to it regardless of whether its worth or not.

                                                The thing about Apple is, back when Steve Jobs was in charge, they always made products for the "future", not for the present. When they remove things like headphone jacks from iPhones or old ports from Macbooks, they are aiming at making products that would be completely feasible and make sense in the future, but are hard to use in the present. Things like cassettes, discs and inerasable storage medium are redundant now, but I still see people today wanting to buy a laptop with a DVD writer "just in case", even though literally everything required can be done using flash drives.

                                                One thing that we often overlook, is that this benchmark or standard has been set high by Apple in the first place. Their innovation was staggering and they made so many things that people around the world copied. We have been spoiled by that and expect such innovation with every single iteration of their phone, tablet and laptop. But there are incremental changes and changes that cannot be seen on the spec sheet that make a great difference in the user experience. When I compared the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 on the Apple website, I was staggered to see the similarities in hardware, form factor and general tech specs. It is true, the iPhone 8 really should have been named iPhone 7S and the iPhone X should have been the iPhone 8 this year, but I think they rushed the line for the 10 year anniversary of the iPhone. Its stupid, but, what are you gonna do.

                                                On the other hand, however, you cannot deny their products are really expensive for the major population of the world. There is a snobbish elitism in there and its unclear whether those products really are worth their price tags. I for one, never bought an Apple product in my life, and the only one I owned was an iPod Nano 3rd gen, a "hand-me-down" gift from my aunt and cousins coz they stopped using it. It was the best piece of tech I owned, and I treasured it. It had great design, software and fidelity, but ultimately not something I could buy with my own money.

                                                Just to conclude, I think we oughta give Apple a break. They've adopted a little in recent times, making larger screen phones and using tech from rival companies like Samsung, and it takes a bit of maturity to do that. However, they do need to step it up and give products that truly live up to and evolutionary update rather than an incremental one when they release new products in the existing line-up.

                                                      Just buy a used last gen iphone. I'll bet a used 7 is like $300 and it's a great phone. Apple products are great actually, but they're like luxury cars. Do you need a luxury car to get from point a to b? No, but it is a nice thing to have if you can afford it.
