    Pass.
    This brand of phones i hate 5% more than any other phone, and i am really looking forward to when i don't have to carry a phone, even when that mean my dear old mother die, cuz it is solely for her sake i carry my electronic pocket turd.

    PS. when that time come i might go to a mobile internet,but i will not be talking over it, and it will probably reside in my car,,,, i am not going to be carrying it around.

    See. that's truly special and unique, something a phone will never make you though Apple i am sure will claim that.

    I really don't get why iphones are so popular. Over a grand and you still only get 64GB of storage... It's kind of a shame that windows phone flopped since android phones have also crept up, though at least you do actually have a wide variety of decent options.

    OOOOH a new iphone... MEH! I though apple were supposed to be masters of phone design, wtf is that camera lens bundle on the back? It looks like the 3 heads off a philishave eletric razor have been grafted on the back. Is the phone 5G capable, no, so you launch a new phone just as new technology is out there, admittedly in its infancy, you totally missed a trick there apple. Another underwhelming product launch from Apple.

    To be fair to Apple it's been some years since anyone did a phone launch that wasn't underwhelming. The phone market has been saturated and ran out of killer new features some years ago now

    Re: Apple launches iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max

    So I was an Android fan bois since it launched but in the last year, due to the rest of my family being iPhone blowhards, I've had to try iPhone. Started with an X, went through 3 of those and have finally landed on an XR which I'm fairly happy with, still prefer my S10e and other Android phones though. Now that the 11 has launched I have to say that I'm very underwhelmed and will give it a pass, as I think many others will. It's timing is unfortunate in terms of 5G, it's too early to include it, I get that, but next year it wont be, so I reckon that many X & XS owners will hang off upgrading till then when there should be a 5G model available.

    The level of innovation shown was simply breathtaking. Maybe they shouldn't have called their event "By Innovation Only" and it might've been slightly less laughable...

    Having tried really, really hard to move to droid this last month or so I had run screaming back... The way droid handles unread items and notifications is just stupid. and yes, yes I did try all these loaders and apps etc... but that's the point, I just want the chuffing thing to work and to tell me which apps have unread things in 3 days after I forgot I was notified..
    Agree on the Windows phone though, used one for 6 months a while back and I really liked it allot, only stopped because some towrag pickpocketed me in Barcelona

    How long until Apple sue OnePlus for stealing 'their' Pro tag?

    I don't mind iphones or any phone in general but I really think that for a company like Apple with the amount they put into designing their products that 3 camera thing looks awful.

    Most consumers barely using 4G speeds let alone needing 5G. Probably a smart move for them so they dont have to add another $100-$200 dollars to the phone to make up for buying the chips.

    Nothing urging me to upgrade my iPhone X, maybe just a battery replacement in the next 6-12 months to give it a new lease of life.

    However, iOS 13, that looks exciting. Looking forward to trying out the new CarPlay and having a system-wide dark mode.

    Look at the size of that notch.

    I really thought their big thing this year would be some sort of solution to that problem, but it really isn't...they made it bigger from what it looks like.

    Ball in your court then Samsung I guess!

    Agreed, the actual design is a bit stale now. However it isn't just about design with Apple, it's also about being simple to use and they have that part covered.

    I don't really mind it or notice it in daily use. Also slightly surprised they haven't found a way to do something with it yet.
