    Don't mind me. I'm just here with my bucket of popcorn watching the Apple apologists justify why they spend so much of their hard earned cash on overpriced mediocrity.

    You guys are dream customers. Loyal to a fault.

    The 8 is a great phone :thumbup:

    One morning my phone clicked into the Quadlock first go, I thought "wow" that never happens! A little be later on I felt a flick on my leg while riding, but couldn't work out what it was until a few corners later when I realised my phone had never actually docked into the Quadlock correctly!

    If mature and efficient LTE Chipset is a major concern then perhaps iPhones aren't the choice for coverage/reliability

    Or will you blame this on the carrier? Not almighty Apple :lol:

    Apple are probably struggling since they abandoned Qualcomm.

    Thanks for the price increase Apple. XS use to start at $1629....now the 11 Pro starts at $1749.

    I'm determined to upgrade my 6S+ 64GB this year and this has been the most reliable phone I've had by far (4 years and still going). But looking at the features for the 11 Pro and most importantly the price, I'm starting to look back at Android, more specifically the Note 10. If Samsung can keep supporting their phones for at least 4 years (or ANY Android phone) then I'm 101%sold. Unfortunately I've yet to see any. I'm at a point in life where I want a phone and not need to upgrade it and be reliable, and it seems like only iPhone can do that, and at a hefty premium. At least there's a USB-C charger included this time.....:p!

    I suspect most of the price increase between XS and 11 Pro is the AUD tanking. Prices are the same in USD from memory, $999.

    As for the Apple/Android thing. I have a few Android phones as music players and laptimers, but even on Android One they seem to keep having issues. Im also relatively tied to the Apple ecosystem by one specific app that I use regularly, so admittedly that makes it easier.

    I'm on a 6 and its getting slow (battery is apparently fine at 91% health) but yes I don't fell compelled to upgrade either..... I just dont rely on mt mobile phones as much as other people (for work or as a status symbol).

    I think if you don't need to upgrade then it's great. My sis has a XS Max and everything feels the same as my 6S+. Screen looks nicer, camera is better, but that's about it. Honestly speaking, iOS is pretty reliable even though it's boring as hell.

    I'm looking at upgrading mainly because 64GB isn't quite enough for me (app are getting bigger in size and I take a lot of photos cos of my kids and for work) and I do want a shiny new toy after 4 years with the same phone :D .

    6 struggles against 6S. Also you are about to be obsolete as the newest iOS version no longer supports it.

    For sure. Either people that can't afford a new phone or don't care much for phones. That is for 1 more year until they stop getting updates.

    Those prices are hilarious.

    Another 6S user here, I plan to update at some point to a 11 soon because my current phone is simply worn out. Battery is nackered and I dropped it 2.5years ago breaking the front glass and then proceeded to drop it a few more times and now has a complete hole straight into its guts and somehow still works lol. Wouldn’t mind some new camera tech too as i take quite a lot of photos.

    i dunno if it's pricing out

    it's just theres no sheen anymore

    pretty much any of us, at a minimum could sign ourselves up to have one on plan

    but it's just like

    why?

    about 3 generations though, the smartphone fan died

    3 generations now, they're passe

    boring

    nobody cares anymore

    im seeing direct correlations between smartphone usage and... people

    the people who are on social media 24/7 are more, more and more seeming to be the same people who...

    have no other commitments

    such as jobs

    if y'know what i mean
