    Apple prob spent trillions on R&D on the iPhone x they gotta claw the money back some how, and how best to do that is, mug off your fans its been estimated the phone costs apple $490 ish to make in raw materials, my boss got the new 2017 macbook pro laptop with touch bar basically the top model was 1900 odd its shit slow compared to my 800 desktop working on illustrator, because its got a half eaten rotten apple on the back its gotta be worth double than an other company who offers a more advanced tech and less price

    Can't believe these things are still going on. I've used both iPhones and Android and even WinMo heavily and find the iPhone my favorite. True the price of the new X is through the roof but I'm happy with my iPhone 6+. It does everything I need it to. It's the perfect size and the integrated facetime and iMessage are a godsend without having to hope that your recipient is using whatever IP messaging service is the flavour of hte month.

    Android has more customization option but in my experience as soon as you start deviating from the OS that comes with the phone it can get unstable. Horses for courses imo. I'm sticking with my 6+ for now - or until it stops working

    Yep - I've seen that in the past but I'm using IOS11 on my 6+ at the moment and if anything it's faster than IOS10. IOS11 will be the last version that will run on my handset. I think after the amount of time I've had this phone it's had a good run for it's money. Unless something amazing comes with IOS12 I'll probably end up sticking with what I've got.

    I am a firm believer that Apple have been doing what that three year old news article from the Daily Fail state but maybe they have changed their stance. My 6+ still runs as good as the day I got it despite being years old - unlike my old iPhone 5 which became unusable toward the end of it's life.

    I jump back and forward on phones between Apple And Android I use two Phones not due to need as I like the differing features they offer.

    From my experience I've found that most of the Apple haters are people that can't afford to buy their products.

    Pretty sure it is but I've seen lots of people compare the S6 and iX. Try comparing the s6 and the s8... hardly any difference and there's two generations between them.

    And this is the problem. Phone tech has plateaued. All they can do now is change the screen size, change the megapixels on the camera and give it a slightly faster processor it would seem. Camera-wise I honestly cannot say I've noticed any improvements for years. More megapixels does not make a better camera. In fact when you are saving as a JPG and uploading to FB or Twitter or whatever to show off your nights out an iPhone 4 camera would probably do the job just fine lol!

    Hopefully we will get a variant of Google Glasses soon that are actually fashionable. Quite a few on the horizon [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] or hologram tech. I've still got a iPhone 6+ and can't see any reason to upgrade to any other handset at the moment as they all run the same apps. Mine takes perfectly good photos and it even makes pretty damned good phone calls

    Flik - Steve Jobs himself would be proud of you thinking like that ;-)
    I think its more about the company which is the richest in the world allegedly but rolling out inferior products whilst cutting cost at all turns and avoiding taxes where possible so they can waste $5billlion on a building?
