    Send the video to an apple user, I actually also own a Note9 and the experience is unbelievable, Linus has made more points than the nerdy little kids with their iPhones replying to Pro-Samsung comments saying "lol iPhone is still better" what point are you making. Begin an actual argument by replying to this comment, if I get just one random kid who thinks iPhone is "Better" honestly im not inviting you, you may leave.

  • ToaAntan

    I have an iphone for the same reason I have a PS4 and its predecessors. I grew into it, I'm used to it, and I like the interface. I don't follow trends or what claims to be the best system or device. (Of course now I have a gaming PC so that PS4 Pro sits collecting dust.) Point is the whole fandom wars over consoles/devices is a silly one and people who bash on one because they have the other are, at the end of the day, trivial at best.

    7:30 Linus are you fucking serious..... swiping up in the middle of the screen shows you passed notifications. "oh no I can *only* unlock my iPhone if I swipe from the VERY bottom which is just so darn hard to reach". sis you're reaching with these complaints.

    • Carter CS
      Carter CS Day ago

      It's a valid complaint, since it makes opening the phone slower than it needs to be.

      1) YOU DON'T NEED TO TOUCH THE SCREENSHOT IN THE BOTTOM LEFT TO SAVE IT. just let it slide away. or slide it away yourself.
      2) if you DO touch it and open up the editing bit, there definitely is a "Save Image" button which saves it to your Photos Library. *edit: I was wrong, I've just seen it is no longer there*

      Changes way more than the Xs ever did. And why would you not want a headphone jack, makes zero sense.

    Apple definitely waited a year to release the iPhone XS Max. Tim Cook said in an interview that all of Apple’s investments are long term. When Apple announced the iPhone X, I think they already had the iPhone Xs ready.
    I love my iPhone X, but I think Apple should just go back to making the “perfect device” like they would in the Jobs era. iPhone and iPad use to be devices, but now there categories for Apple’s phones and tablets.

    Take screenshot, swipe left. That’s it. That said I’ve still not upgraded from my 8+ and I quite like it. I wouldn’t mind having a Xs Max (tho I’m not sure I could own one with such a ridiculous name) but 1) the price and 2) my screen is fine. Yes the oled looks amazing and FID is pretty rad but.... eh. That’s not enough to jump phones yet. Hopefully they fix some stuff this fall and drop something worthwhile.

    The problem is that the iPhone 7 Plus looks perfect. It's fast and looks amazing. Now all these people look at the new lineup which is an ugly notch phone that doesn't even have touch ID. Not only is it uglier and lacks touch ID but it comes with a similar camera and pretty much everything else. Their main new thing is that it has a new Face ID that will scan your face thousand times a day...which doesn't seem healthy.

    "This video is getting exhausting", Yes! I own an IPad 10.5 pro - a great device, it's underutilized by the lack of software that takes advantage of its performance. Apple has managed to SQUEEZE us into bragging and displaying that we have the latest Apple device. But, we are at fault, we shouldn't be on a treadmill to have the best of the best. Why? why treat us as less than? Apple's hubris has, and is, on track, to lose us. They've gone from giving people a taste of the future to separating us from our money. I believe Apple is in for a rude awakening.

    Apple ONLY cares about profit. Only only only. They must have meetings where their top priority is maximising profit, no matter how stupid we think they are. Its a sick culture. Apple does not care whatbwevsay or think because we complain like crazy but continue to upgrade despite getting nothing better, even worse like the headphone jack fiasco, now on ipad pro, whic really has no reason to remove the jack. Its clearly a money making thing, ONLY. No benefits for us, only for apple

    Tim Cook needs to start thinking like Steve Jobs but then again that is impossible and it’s starting to show ,he will be fired anyway if he dares bring out another I phone that will be no different than the I phone X and it’s twin the iPhone XS (exactly the same as 2018 model)which is really an I phone X period! We should be able to get a refund because that was/is a scam to just put the letter s in front of an X with a stroke of a S we got ripped off in uni g what we already have ! the iPhone X ! We miss you Steven Jobs I’m sure you would be bored with what’s going on with ideas 💡 at apple .

    I don't care about either iPhones or Samsung. I like my Sony Experia's. *waits until people stop ranting and raving* Sure, I will grant all of that but I like a heavier phone, they have really good hardware in them and above all I like the design better: iPhones and Galaxy's are just too rounded physically. I don't like it.
