    Standard S iteration of the new iPhone I see. Make the internals a bit better without changing much else. Good if you're due for an upgrade but not enough to inspire many to jump after a year.

    The X is only on sale for a couple days. Price dropped $100. Can still order if @pisspanes wants one of those

    Also stops you being able to use any device with an AUX port which can suck D at times.

    Obviously you can get connectors but it's just a pain in the ass, hate that lots of phone companies are moving away from the headphone jack.

    I wouldn't be so annoyed about it if Apple used a standard usb C port. But to replace the headphone jack with a proprietary connection is just shitty.

    The Lightning thing is the issue with Apple doing it compared to, you know, every other company.

    I bought a Huawei tablet to replace the ipad, best decision ever to be honest. For tablet purposes Apple is a piece of shit because it means converting every video to their shitty formats so you can actually watch stuff on your tablet when traveling. It also doesn't have a headphone jack but to be honest that's just not a factor as I haven't used corded headphones in 12 months now and prior to that I only used them for my old noise cancelling set that I refused to replace until they died (5 years a solid innings given what they've been through), for training I don't know why anyone would use anything but BT these days.

    Genuinely makes me consider the move to Android for my next phone as well if I'm honest. Apple I'm kind of instituionalised but realistically if I never had to use iTunes again, that would be fucking amazing (useless bloated piece of shit that it is). Really the only reason for me to stay is all the Apps that I've bought and that all my music and, more importantly, it's ratings are in iTunes but given I'd like to get away from iTunes that's really only a half reason. (I'm 20+ years into the mp3 game, I ain't getting out now).

    Would love if some of the good phones would start making dual sim cards, never having to do the sim card change for a fucking OTP from my bank would be amazeballs, honestly if someone did that without the sacrifices they all force on you, they'd have me. Honestly can't believe the dual sim card market isn't a lot bigger. If you travel for more than like a week to anywhere then you pretty much would buy a dual sim card version if it wasn't pure poverty.

    that's not true, you can use the vlc player app to watch any video format on any apple device

    also 20 or so years in the mp3 game (intergalactic by the beastie boys was my first ever track i'm pretty sure), paid streaming can ead

    google music locker is pretty good for streaming your own mp3 collection when you don't have space to keep everything you want on your phone

    Never got into VLC on it as I used to use for my AppleTV as well... I'm now on the Amazon Fire, Huawei tablet and just the iPhone left! Even with VLC looks like a pain in the ass to deal with compared to just loading it up on the PC like I can now!

    about 15 years into the mp3 game, but pulled the plug this year and moved to Apple Music, took me a long time to get my head around no physical product, but I am at peace with my decision now
    We demand an investigation into the replacement of referee Rafshan Irmatov and his departure at a difficult time in such an important match. We ask for an examination of the grassland that was not suitable for the Syrian team, while Australian players seem to be wearing shoes that cling to the long grass, so we saw Syrian players fall during the game, while Australia's players are steady.

    I'm not paying for streaming until I can get all the music from one place. Fucking annoying having key albums on one service but not another and vice versa

    There aren't enough compact smartphones on the market. Need an Android phone with a 4-inch screen.

    Yeah phones are pretty obsessed with massive screen sizes which I think is an overkill, those XL ones must be too big to fit in pockets pretty much.

    I finally upgraded my iPhone as I got sick of it basically needing to be plugged into a charger 24/7 but the stupid thing doesn't actually recognise when a cable is plugged in half the time (a problem I've had on every Apple phone ever). Went to the Huawei Mate 20 Pro to get away from iTunes as the cancer it is and not regretting at all..

    Camera is A+, such an improvement but probably not a huge leap from the other newer phones.

    Face login is amazing. Had no idea I needed this in my life but it's amazingly good and easy. Also having the fingerprint scanner actually work first time is such a blessing after dealing with Apple's piece of shit scanner for the past couple of years. Not having to try and find what ninja disjointed angle the scanner wants my finger on that particular login attempt is amazing. Big win here.

    Apps are the big loss of moving to Android. Going to have to learn how to install without using Google Play as there are a couple of apps that aren't supported and then the few apps that don't exist on Android at all are really brutal as well. This is the easily biggest factor where Apple wins but will be trying to get around it. That Google Pay is one of the apps not supported (and isn't a native app, wtf?) is the single biggest issue because that's a real pain in the ass.

    Battery life is incredible, can go 2 full days without charging and even if I couldn't it takes an hour to fully charge the thing and the cables just work, don't need to buy a new cable every couple of months because the iPhone can't recognise a cable if it's not basically brand new (such a shit element on Apple phones). Haven't tried wireless charging but I'm sure it's great.

    I'm also team Huawei. Don't give a shit if the Chinese are spying on me, they make a good fuckin phone.

    I still have the Mate 10 Pro for another year on my contract, basically paying 40 a month for the phone and 20GB of data.

    Battery life and camera are incredible. However the one thing that annoys me with the camera is that I can't figure out how to just take a normal picture. No matter what it creates that focus effect of either making the foreground clear and the background blurry or vice versa.

    The latest software update rustled me a bit as it seems to have completely removed the Google Play icon if you have the Home Screen Style as 'Standard' (where all apps are displayed by swiping right) but not if you select 'Drawer' (where there's a specific apps button and you can then scroll down or search by name).

    I guess I have to change to the 'Drawer' setting eventually (which is actually much cleaner, but firstly need to remember what folders etc. I have set up to save time as opposed to scrolling all the way down to Tapa etc.)
