You know it's true that compliments and fawning over animal pictures exponentially increases the chances of a blowjob.

Augmented reality was on my Sony Z1 years ago. The Spiderman app was a crowd pleaser

when Samsung revealed face unlock I hated it then and I still hate it now - every time you use it you feel like you are taking a passport or license photo and no-one likes that feeling where you have to hold your face a certain way.

Yet another case of Apple finally catching up to Android... and still managing to screw it up.

Pricing for the X is disappointing. Another cash grab for Apple by selling to sheep. Think I'll hold onto my G6 and 7+ a little longer.

To me it seems like for long time that both Apple and Samsung been refining the phone, rather then innovating or "Wowing" us

What surprises me more is my recent experience with mid range android phone around $400, and how good they were.

Remember just the speed alone, one generation to next re: original to iphone5 made upgrading a real consideration.

It's not really a cash grab. It's sort of the phone equivalent of a Merc SLR or the way Bugatti is to Volkswagen.

Obnoxious price and not expected to sell in huge numbers but is a purchasable tech demo for those with the means and inclination for such things.

not always, sometimes they just like stuff and want to share it with others.

it's why some products are new and exciting and others are homogenised copies of things that have come before.

I can see it now, samsung's next top of the line phone is going to be $3k just because we want it to be more exxy than the iPhone X

its going to be made of some space material... and made in limited numbers...

Fuck...

100% Agree. Hopefully the LG V30 floats my boat.
