The camera bar looks ugly. I am due an upgrade next month, and despite being an apple fan, I think the X will be too expensive so I will probably go for a Samsung Note 8.

Set your Apple Face ID to your comeface, so that if someone mugs you for your phone they at least have to **** you off first

That reminds me...

There was a music video (I'm sure some sort of dance music) from maybe about 15 years ago where the video was a top down shot which cut to numerous people's faces in the throws of an orgasm, no nudity, it was a genuinely artistic music video. It was a rather beautiful thing actually, all about joy.
Anyway, it is bugging me I can't remember who it was/what it was called and google searching is proving impossible.
Any of you chaps know what I'm talking about?

I'm an apple user and actually happy that there isn't enough in this to make me want it.
nothing wrong with it really but I like physical buttons and I think touch ID is the best thing that has happened to phones so losing it is silly.

I think the watch is going in the right direction though... would like it to be slimmer and have a much longer battery though

saying that, I haven't been able to jailbreak my iphone 7 and if that continues I'll consider moving to android anyway

still delighted with my iphone 6s on a £15 a month contract

the watch tho I have got the series 1 and the battery is fine unless im golfing

it used to come off the course (using it as my gps) wit 70% or above battery

past 4 rounds its died on the 16th hole so about 45 mins too early

that's just odd

mostly jailbreak but also the price I pay per month!
otherwise I would have been tempted.

Also when I need the headphone socket it does my head in

Managed to get to 61 without owning a mobile phone , funny how we all got along quite nicely without them , now it seems they're very much needed - just something else to spend your money on .

My LGG4 is still going strong and my next phone will be the Xiaomi Mi A1

At £170, it will laugh in the face of iPhones.

Anyone still spending serious wedge on either iPhones or Samsungs and still buying phones on contract, can go straight into the plonker cupboard.

Absolutely hilarious seeing the same culprits sleepwalk into £1300 contracts and even funnier when you see them running out of data.... all for being sold a latest iPhone.

They're usually on O2 aswell, having never changed from the first time they or their parents were bumraped at 17.

The game has seriously changed and people are still paying top money for services.
People will work overtime and try to save money by doing their nut in, but won't do some homework that can save them over a grand a year on Sky/Mobiles etc. It's mental.
