Same here, I've got a 7 256gb and only reason I'm considering upgrading is for bigger screen.

Because y'all are still asleep, i'll break it down for you:

iPhone 8's = iPhone 7's with wireless charging, yawn.

iPhone X = Some gaudy screen with with emoji's which are even more annoying than the standard ones.

End of story.

Have to agree, not particularly magical.

The swipe gesture for home page is going to get old fast, I already have enough issues trying to get the swipe up gesture to work (if there is a keyboard being use), let alone using it for getting to the home page...

May just stick to the 6S, seeing as Apple just gave me a brand new one as the old one developed some issues...

You look at the phone using amazing IrisLens FaceID technology that Nokia had in 2015 is brand new.

Just like the wireless charging, which is an absolute revolution in phones. So simple to use, you can use the same pad to charge your Band Watch as you can your Lumia iPhone!

Also, you should see the absolute revelation that is the 24MP TrueView twin 12MP cameras.

Absolutely amazing. Never seen before.

No no no, that’s a change of method which means innovation! Apple is innovating!

This is incredible, im awestruck with their innovation with this new model, wireless charging!

Innovation.

A snippet from the ABC's excruciating article on iPhone X:

Quote:
It features richer colours courtesy of a new technology called OLED that other vendors such as Samsung are also rolling out.
I want to shoot whoever wrote that article, and carve the following points onto their chest:

* OLED has been around since the late 1980s
* Nokia was the first company to produce mobile phones with OLED screens (N85, in 2008; N86 8MP, in 2009)
* Samsung has been using OLED for decades, and improved on it with their AMOLED technology
* there have literally been hundreds of OLED phones before the iPhone X came along

How dumb do you have to be to believe that OLED is new, and that Samsung has only just started 'rolling it out'?

WTF is up with this emoji thing, anyway? I'm seeing way too many pics of women with dog noses and tongues. Is this some sort of code that they give free blowjobs? Or...?

I know this is a bit old man yells at clowns, but I liked the internet and phones better before every man and his dog was using them. It is being dumbed down to appeal to the dumb masses.

I thought it was some facebook thing where you upload your face and it adds animal features. Didn't know it had permeated to emojii's

So Apple rolls out another new, innovative, ground-breaking iPhone in the 8 and 8+....
And then announces an iPhone X ("ten") at the same time to be available just a month or two later.
Remind me again what the point of the iP8 is?

I'm no fan of Apple, having never owned an iPhone or Mac, but surely the X is the only phone that should have been released (and called the 8).
It's finally got a decent screen, modern design, wireless and fast charging, biometric security (but no fingerprint scanner, really?) and excellent camera (although Apple has generally always had very competitive phone cams).
