I have put aside my $2099 for an X, but just looking and think I might add it to my phone bill for a year instead.

 

Does anyone know if Vodafone do a pre-order when not resigning but purchasing on account?





I know a little more than nothing but not much...

Batman: Had a play on them, the glass is pretty slippery. Accidentally played with the note 8 however ... Felt wow though!

 

 

 

I have really tossed between Note 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Note 8 is an excellent phone; but Google play store apps are still lacking (especially in medical field) compared to App Store. Also some apps for Canary security cameras and Ring - the apps are better optimised in iOS... this was similar when I was using Galaxy S6. I loved the phone and camera. I didn't like the battery life (especially idling).

 

 

 

iPhone X was initially considered (this is work phone, so I don't really pay for it) - but given that it's pushing higher resolution, not as good battery life as iPhone Plus (generally Plus battery life is really good); I felt that iPhone 8+ will last longer (i.e. iPhone 4s lasted much longer than iPhone 4 due to its battery performance). I will use it for a year and probably hand it to my wife who is still happy with her iPhone 6+.

 

Hopefully X will be more refined next year!

If my phone were free I'd get the X or the Note 8 no questions! Seriously!

 

You've just reminded me why I went from Galaxy to Apple empire - idle battery life! The Samsung would drain battery just because you've installed many apps. That really did my head in.

A workmate came back from Lunch just before, Was un boxing an iPhone 7.. I mean iPhone 8, Didn't look any bit different or better that the iPhone 6 he had next to it bar the silver to gloss black casing.

The internals are considerably better and that is what counts. The external has changed with glass to allow wireless charging etc

Same.... and the apps being more stable in some cases.  Things may have changed but that is why I moved.
