before wechat fully takes over here!
Luckily our side of the border is much more civilized, with full access to Facebook, Youtube and other Google services.
Whatsapp is still going strong. I got no friends in China, but I still have Wechat installed for my China clients....unfortunately.
Can you relay your data through a TOR node and defeat such crap?
People in China use VPN to get through "the great firewall", but they are cracking down on those too. Feel sorry for those in China or even expats that have to stay in China.
Im still managing to not have wechat installed, keep phone clean
I had to install WeChat for a few weeks to talk to clients and staff travelling in China. Felt dirty.
Wiped it off as soon as it was all done, but still feel unclean.
am interested to see what the price points for the upcoming iphone 8 will be. ive been using iphones since the 4, im not a fan boy, but i do appreciate their simpleness and easy of use. however i disagree with the constant price increases. they used to be around $400, however now i hear that it will be around the $1500 mark, sorry, thats just way too much. yes i know its an all in one device that is basically a computer, however, its $1500... i guess ill have to see how long i can survive on the 6s until i have to upgrade
True, I totally get the attraction of the ecosystem for peeps who just want stuff to work with no fiddling, I look after 8000 of the damn things at work. Hardware prices are insane though so I just keep buying last years android flagship for $300.
How can you possibly manage 800 iphones at work?
Just FYI - I have just ordered an iPhone 8+ on a plan, so it looks like I will be sticking with Apple for at least 2 more years.
I was given an iPhone 8 Plus by my work to use and I love it but how the hell do people on iOS deal with notifications?
There are a few other annoying things but how the notifications are handled is a dealbreaker for me.
How so? I was on android for ages. Hated iOS. But now it’s so similar that imo you can flip flop between the 2 without skippin a beat
Notifications on Android are sorted and grouped.
iOS just lists them chronologically which is fine if you get 5 notifications an hour.
Ahh yes. Yea that’s fair. Can’t say I’ve paid much attn to it tbh.
Drives me insane, I’m part of a few Facebook group chats I like to keep up to date with that have more than a dozen people per chat and the amount of emails I receive through my multiple email accounts lol.
On iOS it’s a nightmare to go through notifications
Having said that I do like iMessages and I think they do a lot of other things really well like handoff is awesome.
