I love that evey youtuber uploads these videos at the exact same time. i literally just watched MKHB and unbox there's video on it. i haven't seen if austin make one yet but since MKHD did he had to.

its probably because thats when they were allowed to upload it i can never figure out whop to watch and dont want to watch about the same product

Why is $500 now a flagship killer?

 

I bought a brand freaking new Note 2 in 2012 for $700, and that was as flagship as phones got. When did we go from there to $500 being a "flagship killer"?

 

I'm going to go sit on my porch and tell those damn kids to keep off my lawn.

not just that, they also went live on Youtube before posting the Thread, also the target time is 3 eastern (NOON PACIFIC, which is where they are) and the forum thread comes earlier then that, sometimes up to an hour earlier

this one was basically a simultaneous release between the forum and youtube

yeah, but usually the forum gets it early, so it was irrelavant

seriously Linus, you complaining about getting to go to New York several times in a matter of weeks.

It's not like he's traveling there for a vacation lol. He's either on a plane, working, or sleeping like 3 hours a night :P it's more tiring than you might think.

I said pretty much the same thing to Linus when he suggested "flagship killer" in the title... then I realized that it kinda is lol. With most flagships running $700-1000 these days...


Sign up for Floatplane. Do it. It's fantastic.

Still not my ideal phone. Take the HTC M8, add a rear fingerprint reader, add a good camera, and update the internals. Bonus points for waterproofing/18:9/OLED screen.

 

It has the curved metal back that feels amazing in hand, of the M8, but not much else.

Wouldn't 40 hours to unlock Darth Vader be something closer to extortion?

Not a fan of the HTC U11 Plus? I'd say it's one of, if not the best phone of 2017.

Ugh, “flagship killer”

 

The only thing it kills flagships in is price:performance (and RAM plus UX performance).
