    Do we care anymore..

    I remember how exciting it would be when a new iphone was released, the 4/5/6/7 etc

    But now even with 3 fucking camera lenses and new emojis faster this faster that, ive lost the hope for tech stuff.

    I use to change my iphone nearly every year (a product of marketing hype) until I got to the X, now I have zero want to change, as I have no idea why I would be.

    Someone needs to come along and blow apple out the water (if thats possible).

    Huawei and samsung have both done that consistently over the past couple of years in terms of specs, the p20 pro was so far ahead of the iphone X in terms of hardware it wasn't even close and im sure that will be the case with the samsung s10+ and the p30 pro vs the iphone 11.

    I had every iphone from the original iphone 2g in 2007 but last year I switched to a p20 pro as my friend had one and I was impressed by it, had it a year and for me in terms of productivity and screen, battery etc its so much better than an iphone.

    I installed fluid ng which basically allows swipe actions like the iphone, so it navigates like an iphone which I am used to and I have no complaints.

    The innovator at apple is gone, they have literally done nothing but update stuff for the past few years.

    The days of apple innovating and creating stuff which hasn't been seen before are long gone unfortunately.

    Yep, I've stopped caring and only upgrade every 3-4 Years. As long as the damn thing works and not a slow arse then I'm not bothered about the latest. I've got a 10 at the moment, so next upgrade will be 13 or 14 lol

    It was all downhill after jobs died anyway. You can even see some of the shocking design traits that are coming in which you just know would never ever be allowed by Steve Jobs. The 3 camera lens is such an eye sore!

    Samsung are leading the way with design, I just wish I didnt like the apple ecosystem as much as I do. No doubt in time though it won't be enough to keep me around and the competition will eventually catch up

    I’m happy with whatever my current work phone is. Currently a 7+. Haven’t paid for a mobile contract in 10+ years. Always thought paying the ‘latest tech’ premium in a world where it moves so fast is a mugs game. I remember people paying £100 a month for contract and phone when the X came out... that’s utterly fúcking mental! If you’re a higher rate tax earner that’s £4k of your gross salary over a 2yr contract!

    I do love Apple, but always happy with slightly older models. As long as the phone makes calls, takes pictures and can surf the web that’s all good.

    I would never buy a Huawei funnily enough. Those bastards appear to be en route to global domination!

    I had a 3gs then 4s, 5, 6, 6s (returned as too similar to the 6), 7, 8 (returned as pretty much the same as the 7) and the X.

    Wasn't interested in the Xs and not interested in the 11 Pro, I don't use my phone as a games console or a DSLR so I don't need a faster cpu, gpu or those fuckin awful looking cameras.

    What happened to Jony Ive ? Did they get rid of him, or have they given him so many mind altering drugs now that he thinks the new camera design looks good ?

    Been on contract for 20+ years

    Had iPhone 4/5/6 when I got the 6 I paid abit more on my contract to have a bigger memory- then after the 2 years was up kept it and went on sim only £20 a month and I’m happy with my phone!

    Fast this fast that- £1000 for a phone is a fooking joke aswell!

    Always use to love upgrading to the latest phone , however since having an iPhone X coming up to 2 years I still don’t feel the need to upgrade.

    Apple may be getting left behind when it comes to tech, but ios is miles ahead of android from the average users perspective

    Nokia 8 all the way for me. Sacked off Samsung and can't do with apple stuff. Nokia 8 is AMAZING. Fast, bright screen, battery last forever. Utterly brilliant.

    I don't like corporate domination, however I purchased Nokia all the way from 1997... until 2009 when they stopped using real buttons. I guess that was the end of Nokia's 10+yr reign, 10yrs later... Apple seem to be approaching the same fate. Their computers are still way better than Windoze tho.
