Firstly, really disappointed about the lack of touch ID on the X model.  Just thinking the number of times I unlock the phone from sideways. 




The X screen and camera though, look great.

Since the 8/8 Plus is just another incremental update, I wonder why Apple broke their own naming scheme. Would've thought it would've been the 7S and 7S Plus.

Given earlier suggestions that the A11 has comparable performance to a MacBook Pro I think it's really unfortunate that you can't connect the new iPhones to an external monitor. I guess you could use airplay to mirror it to an Apple TV but the limited screen resolution wouldn't give you the same experience as using a 'real' computer.


The only thing I use my MacBook Pro for now is spreadsheets and web browsing on sites where a larger display is needed. It seems like a bit of a waste if a mobile device can handle everything else.



If i could plug the iphone x into a dock that supports keyboard/mouse/screen and have it run MacOS as a desktop machine then i would totally buy it.  I think there would be a few people that would like something like that.  Just think plug your iphone in, do you work, remove it and it turns back into a phone.
