I bought a swiss army knife of phones. I'm not proud of spending $1360 on a phone, but I think I got my money's worth. The phone does give me a PC like an experience and lots of conveniences. Everything I do on my PC I now do on my phone.
I very much would like a Surface pro, but due to lifestyle changes, it doesn't sense for me to use one. I think it's the same for many people.

I felt like the X that I have now is probably the most problematic of all iPhones I have ever had. It feels like the software just doesnt have to polish that iPhones usually do. Its just the little things that add up.

This new max will be the same exact thing just a bigger screen. Anyone buying this phone should know its just an S version so theres really no new game changing features.
You don't think the Neural learning stuff is gaming changing? The chip sounds like a big upgrade.

That remains to be seen for me personally. The X has it already it learns things that you do and the way you type(text suggestions) but its nothing ground breaking that I couldnt live without. If it becomes more useful in the XS could be a game changer but as of right now not really. They are opening it up for devs to take advantage of but whether or not devs use it in a meaningful way remains to be seen.

They're using machine learning to enhance your photography. I'm not sure if that's cloud based or not. It wouldn't change the way you use your phone but it does improve things you do on it. If you take that much photo in your life.

You'll appreciate the improvement on phone a lot more If you live in China. Apple emphasizes the phone AR capabilities. AR and VR is huge in China. So I've been told.

They put a whole show on how they are doing this and that in the background while taking photos but the end result will only be marginally better than an iPX in reality.

As far as AR goes, I have never been to china and I dont know what they do there with AR but I havent used AR in any meaningful way at all on my phone. I tried some terrible games and some apps that use it to show landscapes of places you been but nothing worth it. I dont know why Apple is pushing AR so hard cause I have yet to see it be useful anywhere in my own life.

Tell you one thing guys - I do miss my Apple watch. I just reset my Samsung gear again as it was almost unusable after the last update. I want an Apple watch back - but I won't buy another Apple phone.

sigh

Default Apple ups service pricing

https://www.forbes.com/sites/gordonk.../#6fedbe317f26

Quote:
This week Apple AAPL -1.18% launched its new iPhones to much fanfare and looking closely at the iPhone XS (details), iPhone XS Max (details) and particularly the iPhone XR, this is deserved. That said, Apple also made a second, quieter announcement shortly after the launch and it will be greeted with a lot less enthusiasm…
What Apple announced was its updated Service Pricing to cover the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, and the user response has been hostile. While the iPhone XS retains the same extortionate costs for screen repair ($279) and “Other damage” ($549) as the iPhone X, these have been pushed up to an astonishing $329 and $599 respectively for the iPhone XS Max.

that's the problem, you don't find it useful anywhere in your life (like me).

Apple's solution is to MAKE it your problem, because, that's the apple way.

Took 11 iPhone generations for them to finally record in stereo sound. Bravo, Apple.

Did the note 9 just get speaker stereos?

Point is every company lags behind in something and catches up later.

Well, Apple iphone has multi-mic arrays for years which is used for audio recording and phone calls but not video. Will Apple implement it for their previous iPhones? You have to ask why the **** not.

Note 9's stereos speaker is software. It's using the earpiece which the note 8 also has. You can make it do the same thing on note 8 if you rooted it.

Stereo speakers in Samsung phones started this year, yes. They started in iPhones in 2016, so not that far behind. Stereo recording has been a thing since 2013 with the S4, bit of a bigger deal IMO to ignore such a simple feature all that time.

If you think like that then you're part of the reason why it took this long to add stereo video recording to iPhones.

Both are a big deal. Id say stereo speakers are more important than stereo recording(we arent making full feature length videos on our phones) just because speakerphone talking would be better.

If you think like that then you're part of the reason why it took this long to add stereo video recording to iPhones.
Doesnt matter if its software or hardware. If its not enabled out of the box it doesnt matter. The average consumer isnt going to pick a samsung phone and have the rep say "btw if you want stereo speakers the phone has the capability but if you want to use it then you have to root it and figure out how to make it work on your own"

Part of the problem isnt me... might be samsung for having the hardware there but not enabling it?

Just get the 8, cheaper, nice upgrade from the 6s, and does everything you need and more...

It is possibly the cheapest watch you can buy that doesn't come across as the cheapest watch you can buy.

I am only using it as a watch. It is actually useful. Receiving messages and other crap on it is icing.

From a few reviews, I've seen it last 2 to 5days. You should still charge it at the end of the day to avoid battery anxiety. You won't have to think about it if you make it a routine.
