Sounds like Apple is marketing towards the X-men. There is no other reasonable explanation.

"meaningless". iOS can only be so "magic" untill they resort to pagefiling. which is 1. bad for the SSD聽 2. makes it slower in day to day use. 3. and when it isnt pagefiling it is putting tasks out of memmory.

calling it meaningless is just false. iOS isnt getting skinnier, everyone should know that by now

iOS 11 can run pretty damn decently on 1GB of RAM.

Show me a phone that can run the latest Android update fairly decently with that much RAM.

Both OSes handle memory management in significantly different ways, and there's numerous reasons to it. I'm not gonna say whether Android is poorly optimized or not, becuase I can't say for sure if it is or isn't, but if anything's true, it does need more memory to play around with.

Yes, I'm gay and don't give a shit about pride. My sexuality isn't my personality; my VHS tapes and my video captures are.

i had a hard time finding a android phone with so little RAM, kinda embarrasing really for apple.聽

also i choose the Nokia 2. there you go.聽

They have a point, but they're also not really showing the whole picture.

Some women friends bought the iPhone SE precisely because it's better for their hand size (not to mention the sorry excuses for pockets that women are often forced to endure). 聽That Apple dropped the SE entirely isn't at all kind to them.

At the same time, I know some women for whom it's not a problem at all. 聽While I wish I had quantitative data for this, I've noticed that women are sometimes the loudest proponents of giant phones because they tend to put their phone in a bag anyway -- size doesn't matter so much when it's never going in your pocket. 聽This isn't to diminish the importance of smaller phones, just to note that it's a complex situation.

Not to mention the very key point that Apple聽would have continued to make it聽if it sold exceptionally well and/or was very profitable. It was either hurting their bottom line (by being a cheaper alternative) OR there wasn't all that much demand (relatively). Given that Apple sells similarly priced phones in the form of the previous model, I'm less willing to believe that it's a profitability standpoint. Although you could certainly argue that an iphone 7/8 isn't quite the same as an SE2 -- the SE2 would need to be manufactured whereas the 7/8 could be leftover stock (but I don't necessarily believe that they end up with that much excess either).

The above is also assuming that there is any validity in most feminism -- which there isn't; most of it is, as you alluded to, onion level nonsense.

No, Apple historically offers the previous gen iPhone for a lower cost up to 3聽years after they were announced. In certain cases models will be phased out and completely replaced, like the iPhone X and iPhone 5.聽

But these iPhones (7/8) will not be updated internaly ever again.聽

Xr looks pretty cool. I think the image of it being the more "budget" phone will attract a lot of buyers even though they're still paying out the ass for a phone. I don't really get why everyone is so hyped about extra CPU performance when phones aren't really doing anything with it. You play some basic games and use browsers and things, no one is really doing work on their phone (or do you?). All we want is a big battery with a simple interface.

Yes, typically you are gonna use your phone for years, that new CPU you have matters after 2 years of use compared to the one from the previous year

I think Apple should have carried over that 401PPI from the iphone 8 Plus as the Xr screen is bigger but i guess most people wouldn't notice.

And yeah knowing you're getting full sRGB would be nice, I know some complain of a blue tint with Samsung displays. The S8+ is the better value imo as there is still a 3.5mm jack,no notch, and a bigger battery. As far a support I'd like it to have Android one though I don't know of anyone that keeps a phone for more than 1 or 2 years.

I had my hand on a note 9 yesterday and I knew 100% I would not buy that phone. It LAGS just swiping around the home screen. A $1000 flagship lags at its homescreen. Also, I know a lot of people who are on their iPhone 6s, some are even on their iPhone 6

Mine doesn't. Didn't before I disabled all the bloat, either. Neither did either of my S8s.

Honestly, every iPhone I've played around with lags about as much as my S6 did. Occassional lag is just something that happens from time to time, on every phone.


Yup the yup.

Anyway, to get things back on track: my iPhone Xs is already being prepared for shipment.聽 Not completely surprising, but I could swear they took longer than that even a couple of years ago.聽 Apple is clearly determined to ship as many of these as it can and pump up those quarterly numbers.

Right, but you had to disable the bloat. You have to do this, you have to do that. TBH, that's what frustrates me about android. You have to do so many things all the time. There's also the "oops we fucked up google play service, here enjoy the battery drain" that I had for a week on my nexus 5x resulting in me having to google search for 30 minutes trying to make the phone usable and I had to uninstall an app that I actually use quite often

Not in the past 4 or 5 years. Running most phones as they are out of the box isn't that bad anymore.
