iPhone X and other toys

I'm a sucker for new Apple stuff, so I shall be watching the 'Apple Keynote' this evening from 6:00pm. However, if the new iPhone X is approaching 1k, I may make do with my 7+ for a bit longer.

Am I the only one here interested in what's new from the Cupertino company?

I'll be watching but not sure I'll be buying anything this year. Happy with the Nike Watch, can't see them improving the airpods that much to replace them so soon. iPhone will be expensive so doubt that will be a goer and finally my iPad could do with replacing so that might be where they get me if anything.

If the new watch has its own sim, I might be interested. Also quite keen on a new Apple TV.

They are all SO excited.

Definitely want the watch - but it's just EE in the UK and I'm on Three. Almost certainly it will be necessary to switch to use the same number as your phone.

Always love it when something doesn't work in these live shows. Face recognition may not be instant and infallible apparently.

Is there a big difference between face recognition with Apple and what Samsung have been doing? Or the charging plate which Samsung have been doing for years?

The 8 is pointless but the X looks better.

It's showing in the apple Store now and the pricing is the same in as it is in $. The cheapest version is 999 - or $999 in the US.

The 256GB version is 1,149.00!

That's a lot.

a big fan of Apple, had my iPhone 6s plus stolen this year and the Android equivalent that I had to buy as a replacement simply doesn't come close, rubbish in comparison, but the products are too expensive now, insanely so

No offence but laughable when people say android equivalent wasn't as Good, what phone was it?

Apple have embarrassed themselves this time around and I'm loving the Twitter comments. Copying 2 year old wireless charging, Months old face recognitions and the look of a Samsung yet they use words like revolutionary. They are the Man United of football though....no matter what they do people act like sheep and buy the products. Samsung and even LG etc are at least 1-2 years ahead of them.

Edit: A mate just told me they have a glass back now. That's only 2 years behind.

Fair play if people prefer Apple as it's a simple product but when people buy a cheap android and compare it then what do you expect.

its a Samsung , but I wont be a sheep and buying a new iPhone the products are too expensive,the Samsung is garbage in comparison though, constantly crashes, terrible battery life, shite apps and software updates, I'd quite happily wait a year or two if a rival product has ironed out past technology issues to make it flawless now though, how far are smartphones going to go? there is only so much any of them can do and its all basically the same shite
