  1. AFAIK, they don’t include headphones or an adapter in the box and are pushing a $45 dongle too.

    There's a fair number of reviews that didn't have the WiFi issue and also claimed excellent battery life, so I'd imagine it's related. I'm fully expecting to get the exact same battery I had with my Series 2 with some minor LTE use daily. I don't think that's unreasonable. Hopefully they sort it out ASAP.

    I'm very much of the mindset that phone cost is irrelevant as it's my most important possession. It's literally connected in some way to every aspect of my life. I upgrade every year because every improvement to it improves some aspect of my day to day in one way or another. There's nothing else I use that I can say the same thing about. Because of that I'll always be a flagship user. On the plus side, flagship phones have great resale year to year and the annual net to upgrade is nothing. If I was under contract, it'd actually be 0 or a net positive every 2 years for selling the old device and getting a new one.

    Just an FYI: Screen recording is built into iOS 11, and you can add it as a shortcut to control centre. There's also APIs for streaming your display (youtube just added support).

    Oh yea, don’t get me wrong. The phone’s awesome. Minor stuttering in the UI is just that, but it irritates me a bit. Fairly nitpicky. I also don’t like the fingerprint placement. Otherwise if I was to get an android right now that’d be the one no doubt.

    Not really. To me at least. I was just replying to what you said. "I had high hopes that iPhone X would be at least on par with the S8 on specs ". Kinda suggests that the result was that it wasn't on par which is far from the case. The S8 does suffer performance wise but that's not really because of the hardware .

    I believe the X will absolutely crush the S8 in every performance metric. The A11 is out of hand. And 3GB of RAM on iOS > much more from a Galaxy phone, typically. What is it you think isn't on par? Screen resolution is probably the only thing?
  8. Reviews are coming in for Iron Fist...

    I could be wrong, but I believe the Defenders share a villain with Iron Fist. So it'd be akin to skipping Thor before The Avengers.

    Not sure I follow that. How are they covering anything? Technically you're getting more screen in the areas to the sides of the cutout. I don't really see a downside there.

    Looks that way. 4.7 and 5.5 classic design, and a 5.8" OLED new design.
  11. FWIW, I have that official screen protector and it's actually great. I've long been on the side of glass protectors on my phone after years of garbage film protectors... but this one has been flawless for me.
  12. What email app do you use for iOS?

    Looks like Push support is back for Gmail in iOS 11, so I'll be moving back to Mail.app for Siri/proactive reasons.
  13. Re: 3D Touch on iPad, this was a concern of mine before as well until it was pointed out to me that it doesn't really make much sense from a useability standpoint. Unlike your phone where you can always perform the action, the iPad would only be stable enough to do it on a flat surface. Holding a 10/13" tablet in one hand and forcing in on it with the other, or trying to press in while it's standing in a case, etc wouldn't be great. That being said i'd rather have it than not.

    Eh, it's just renders without any real indication of how software will work with this. Here's someones theory, and it would make sense : https://forums.macrumors.com/proxy.php?image=https%3A%2F%2Fpbs.twimg.com%2Fmedia%2FDBGmVlSXoAEgtVT.jpg&hash=45ee8f66a1b27c46910a5c6306c47856 They'll be using an OLED this year, so blacking out the area to the sides of the cutout and using them for status bar indicators isn't too far fetched.

    >:0 Wider aspect ratio -> narrower phone body. I'm good with a display like the S8 that's easier to handle while being larger.
