Leaks of the iPhone 8 are literally flooding out, even through Apple’s own software

Thoughts? And would you get one (with the estimated price tag of $1000-1200)

Nowadays Apple seems to be trying to catch up with market..compared to when it used to be the innovator

    The iPhone is so basic, it's sad. & People keep buying the same thing with a different shell design- which makes them sheep. I bought a Pixel (before I started working where I do) and honestly think it's the best smart phone I've ever had. The picture clarity alone makes it worth the switch. Just my two cents. 😎

      New OS adoption rate for Android : 12%
      New iOS adoption rate for iPhone : 90%

      This stat itself says it all. 😉 I think this does not leave much room for anyone to ponder upon which one is technically superior. 😂

      Adoption metrics only argues the superiority of one aspect of the system, and it's a useless comparison between Android as a whole and iOS, trying looking at the adoption rate between iOS and the Google Pixel.

      Android phones also burn more energy due to the JIT and garbage collection overhead.

      Instandidl makes a very important point. It's true, apparently, also about desktop Chrome vs. Safari.

      @Am1Evil not true for desktop. Both safari and chrome desktop JIT and GC the JavaScript. As for the Chrome and Safari applications themselves, Chrome is written in C++ and so runs natively and doesn't have a GC.

      Btw, it should be noted that the JIT was removed in Android 5.0 with the introduction of AOT compiled code running on ART. The GC overhead is still there, but that shouldn't consume nearly as much energy as a profiling, smart JIT

      My dad put it to me in an interesting light: 15 years ago he'd have to pay someone $30k a year to do what his $1k iPhone does. That's how I justify it- it makes me 10x more productive and, IMO, the iPhone is an EXPERIENCE vs just a smart phone.

    As far as I've heard, it's going to be large. I'm only getting the small, squarish iPhones. I dearly hope they won't stop making them.

      6S is small? I'm talking about 5SE 😱

      Another SE fan here. I replaced my 6s with an SE because it’s a much better phone in terms of portability.

    "Nowadays Apple seems to be trying to catch up with market.."

    This sentiment never gets old. I mean someday it may actually be true.

      Can you point to one new (and actually useful) thing Apple has came out with recently that wasn't the work of Jobs?
      Aug 16, 2017
    • Apple £
      @Biased I may be a little biased but I think the AirPods are one of Apple's coolest and most useful products. I was definitely hesitant to purchase because of the price, but honestly try them for yourself -- they're completely worth it in my opinion. I used decent quality wired earphones (Bose SoundTrue) before getting the AirPods, and after only 2 weeks with them I can confidently say I'm never going back.

      However, I definitely agree that in general Apple's "innovation" has slowed down significantly since Steve.

      My main concern with the AirPods is them falling out of my ears and breaking.
      Aug 16, 2017
    • Apple £
      That's fair. Mine generally stay in my ears pretty well but I haven't tried them while working out yet. Wouldn't call them rugged or anything but I have dropped them a few times onto concrete with no damage or noticeable scratches

    The leaked Pixel 2 has bezels the size of a football field, and Samsungs have awful security and a bad (though less so lately) UI, so iPhone 8 it is

    Apple is great at offering things in different colors and selling them like hotcakes. It started with that CRT of an iMac desktop PC. It's​ nothing to be hyped over as it will just be on par with the competition.

      That's bullshit. They make products that don't make you feel like you're being taken for a ride or being nickel and dimed (except for services... historically and STILL)

    My say is simple.. Iphone or for that matter Any Apple do provide quality product but it is way costly. So I usually wait for a year or so and get em with fair price ..

    You should know the media is being sensationalist with the pricing. They are intentionally referring to the largest model with the largest storage space.
