Apple announces iPhone Xs, Xs Max, and Xr

No, I didn't. Second sentence of what I wrote.

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

Not really.

I've been an iPhone user for 2 years but before that I've been pretty much an avid android user, rooting, custom ROM, kernel, I've been there.

 

I don't know how your experience has been but my iPhone has given my a way more consistent experience. I always get my update, the first moment the software is out. My 3rd party apps will always work, or at the very least will work better than in android except for google apps. 

 

When I spend $750 on iPhone 7 and pre-ordering my XS Max, I know I'm getting the current best hardware, software support for at least 4-5 years, excellent resale value, non-problematic 3rd party apps and probably the best customer support in the industry, 15 minutes drive from my home.

I genuinely don't care about mobile phone updates, they offer nothing worth caring about if you're an Android user, especially a Samsung user. But now Apple's playing catch up isn't bringing anything worth caring about either.

Since KitKat, Android has been extremely consistant within phone brands. And if you like near stock Android, like a heathen, across most brands it's still rather consistant.


Yup the yup.

I’ve been using an iPhone for about 6 weeks, and I agree with this, overall. The integration with other devices is also a significant benefit, for me. Now to see whether I want to swap the iPhone 8 for an Xs...

You dont care about software update because you use using samsung, and samsung sells you expensive phone and gives you a middle finger regarding software updates

I also used Sony, where I got software updates every week to two weeks, as well as Windows Phone, where I got updates every one to two months.

 

I use Samsung partially because I don't care about useless and worthless software updates.

 

Especially updates that are better served as a small handful of patches throughout the year instead of the shitshot that is iOS 10-12 and Android 5.0 and up. Updates that somehow are still only catching up to what Samsung has been doing since 2014, if not earlier.

 

And don't try to use security updates as a got'cha. Those can be downloaded and installed along side app updates on Android, and are.


Yup the yup.

The difference is Apple still supports their 5 year old phones.

It's not like phones magically stop working. Or that people are somehow missing out on anything super substancial.

 

And most people don't care either, they either hold onto their phones until it stops working regardless of support, or they upgrade every year or two, regardless of support. That argument only really matters to a subset of techies.

The user experience is shit IMO, the software overall. Forced Google apps, bloatware, etc. Phone gets laggy over time even without software updates. Especially Samsung ones.

 

I guess it has gotten better with Mid-Range Android phones, I'll give you that. Headphone jack is great too. 

 

For me personally I can't stand Android anymore. It just wastes too much of my time, isn't elegant at all.

opposite experience for me. i almost always have a custom rom and my note 4 seems to be getting faster with each new android version. i had a nightmare experience with my old iphone 5 when i upgraded to ios 7 it lags everywhere: when opening apps, web browsing, etc. and every 2 hours the wifi stops working even though it says im connected and i have to reset network settings and reboot

Comparing the user experience of a 32Bit phone from 2012 to a 64Bit phone from 2014. Nice

US and European versions of the Note 4 were 32bit. Also, don't want people comparing phones two years apart, don't tout that the older phone is supported longer.

Really? Even though it came out in 2014 and Apple was doing 64Bit in 2013?

There is a difference in directly comparing two phones from the same time period and directly comparing two phones that are years apart. 

 

Its common sense really.

The difference was paramount to the iPhone 5s which is getting iOS 12 thanks to that 64Bit SoC. The Note 4 has no official support.

Yes. That doesn't make the comparison bad, wrong, or invalid. Especially when you validate it with "our phone is older and will still be supported longer."

Time for a new battery for him then. It's really easy to do on your own or costs $30 to replace at Apple. Batteries are consumable items and every cell will need to replaced eventually, including the one in your Note 4 if you haven't replaced it already.

Every phone has an operational temperature range, some manufactures don't care and will let your phones SoC condense water onto the PCB, others won't. Same goes for heat, some won't care that heat literally kills batteries and others will.

well did my phone explode? and theres no excuse you can give for the high temperature warning it just has bad cooling. also considering the apple store charged me 70 dollars for them to stick a screw driver into my imac power button and wiggle it around i doubt its a 30 dollar battery replacement

this is my power button after they "fixed" it. sure you can press it now but you have to use every ounce of strength in your hand

A P2 screw driver, a suction cup, and a magnetic parts tray is all you need to replace an iPhone battery. Anyone with a brain could do it in 15min max.
