  1. While you pulled the trigger a bit soon IMO, the way things have been going the last half decade, the 3700X will still be relevant.
  2. Maybe this one will make an upgrade from Haswell-E worthwhile.
  3. I got a door bell from the 1950s-1960s.
  4. The best way to get pulled over by a cool cop is when they say "Now, I wouldn't have pulled you over, but ya pissed off the secret service."
  5. I have two S8s. Both of them see the same battery life as my XR under any usage, a day and a half to two with light usage and about 3/4 a day under heavy usage. Just left to idle, both my S8s outlast the XR by over 100%, a full week vs 3 days at best. My Note 9 and 11 Pro Max also see similar battery life with usage, 2.5 under light, a full day under heavy usage. That's fairly typical now. iPhones have never offered exceptional battery life.
  6. Either you don't use your XR as anything more than a basic phone, or you have no idea how long Android phones last. Anything more than letting the phones idle, and they last roughly the same time as phones like the Galaxy S8, and the XR's rated capacity is 2942, not far off from the S8's 3000.
  7. Unless we move to exposed metal coils on the pad and phone with direct electrical transfer, no, we won't. There are electrical components in both the base pad and phone that require power in order for wireless charging to even work in the first place. These chargers are essentially electromagnets with power regulators, those things don't run on pixie dust.
  8. I don't know if all that many people would be happy with replacing Lightning with a MagSafe. Since Lightning is now the ONLY connector, and there are some things you definitely don't want communicating over Bluetooth (like Square readers), it seems like they'd be alienating quite a few customers with existing peripherals.
  9. That's how it's always going to be, unless manufacturers intentionally cripple charging by wire. The materials used to make phones and pads have far higher resistance than copper, meaning you'll always need more energy to overcome that resistance. Wireless charging is simply inferior.
  10. I have a fairly new Qi charger. It sits in a drawer because it's a piece of shit compared to charging by cable.
  11. Except for the fact that those companies are fairly heavily regulated.
