    but that essentially 720p display is liquid retina...

    Also got to laugh how Apple used to go on about fragmentation on Android yet they now have about 6 different resolutions not to mention different screen ratio's on just their iPhones...

    funny how the iPhone 5s, released back in 2013, is getting iOS 12, but the oldest Sony (sorry to pick on you Sony) smartphone to get Android 9 Pie is the Xperia XZ Premium which was released just 16 months ago.

    I like the look of the new hardware but its still way to expensive and i have no interest in the Apple ecosystem, i just do not like the way Apple do things.
    Clever marketing, the use of words such as "neural" and "bionic" which give the impression of intelligence and being better. Of course your not that intelligent if you actually fall for the bull****.
    Clever as well how the top line phones are first introduced so that the XR then looks relatively less expensive. Of course your not very clever if you think that $750 dollars is not expensive for the specs of the phone.
    I can remember when it was touted that bezels were necessary on hand held device so your fingers did not touch the display unwaringly and yet there is no tablet that is edge to edge on all four sides which i would assume is actually down to the engineering strengthwise.
    How long will it be before the first phone arrives with a 7" display and thus into tablet territory. Still remember those spoofs of folk with iPads to their ear and shouting a call and here we are on the verge of it being for real.

    Re: Apple announces the iPhone XS, XS Max, and colourful XR phones

    Apple's drying out on the innovation front. All I saw was a hospital grade heart rate monitor with ECG and other functionality. Yes that's nice to have but that's not what I want a new watch for.

    Rather than having new tech that I'd actually want to upgrade my existing model, all I saw was same screen, new colour and higher pricing. I'm out...

    Re: Apple announces the iPhone XS, XS Max, and colourful XR phones

    Nice upgrade from the X, on paper the screen should be amazing, bonkers CPU as well, Was hoping they Xs would be £100 cheaper and the Xs Max would be at £999, oh well.
    Only other annoyance for me other than the price not being what I wanted is they are removing the Lightning to 3.5mm adapter from the devices.

    The price drops on the 8 and 8 plus will make for really good mid-range phones, in most benchmarks these two devices still come out on top against nearly all phones currently on the market anyhow.

    I am on the upgrade program, tempted by the Xs Max, will wait for reviews and check it out in the flesh in a few weeks.

    The absolute minimum price on their website for an 8 is £599. Is that really midrange?

    Re: Apple announces the iPhone XS, XS Max, and colourful XR phones

    I would put it mid to high end, looking at competitors premium tier seems to be around £800 - £1000.
    Though this is the first of the "next-gen" phones, we will get a better idea of what the new upper limit is when Google release the Pixel and Samsung the new S series early next year.

    I know no one who thinks £600 is midrange. Midrange in the UK is defined as under £400:

    Its a shame the rumoured SE upgrade never happened, I know a few people who would have jumped on that.
