    Samsung Galaxy phone expensive, yes!
    Offer's you with your hard earned money
    Fast charging comes in the box,( 3500,4000) milliamp battery depending on S9 or note 9, SD card slot up to a TB, headphones jack comes with good quality earphones in the box NO EXTRA CHARGE, infinity screen that is flowless.
    Pay more for less.
    No headphone Jack
    No SD card slot
    Small battery (compared to Samsung)
    Fast charging but you got to pay an extra $70 on top of the overpriced phone.
    What exactly you buying with your hard earned money if your stupid enough to lay down over $1000 for a iPhone? I feel bad for people keep buying iPhone and not getting what deserve with there Money besides getting rip off completely.
    If you can't see the value difference, your one stupid hard iPhone fan boy/girl.
    iPhone will go our of business if they continue this nonsense. it's 2019!!!
    There many cheaper option available now days that killing the iPhone. Probably a budget phone offer's more then iPhone does. Your only paying iPhone for there IOS experience pretty much. Get a cheaper iPhone to get that experience. Don't lay out $1000. There's no need to. There's no difference between iPhone 6 to iPhone 8. Now over $1000 for a iPhone. Shut the front Door!!! No headphone jack no SD card slot ?????? What are people getting if there stupid to buy anything over a iPhone 7?
    Please save your money and make the switch to Samsung. Don't throw your hard earned money away for a new iPhone.
    There worth $300 or less!!

      +Captain Croissant Spend $1000 dollars on a cell phone that gets More Bang for your buck!!.
      I know apple has a solid hardware system they build from the bottom up. But why does apple a trillion dollar company can't provide a Headphone Jack? SD card Slot? Bigger battery? A apple pen? Fast changing that comes in its packaging? Wireless charging.
      And they offer Fast charging but you have to spend a Extra $70 on top of the expensive price tag alrighty?
      I don't like big companies like apple ripping people off. Us all people work hard for our money to throw it at apple.
      Apple fans has there head so far up apple's asses they can't see past that they keep upgrading to get a little upgrade??
      Apple hasn't offered anything exciting since the iPhone 6 dropped with a bigger screen. Somehow they get people to keep buying there crap.
      iOS super fast and simple to use but only if you can customize to your own personal flavour. Apple being there hard headed and make apple all the same across. Even iPhone 6, iPhone 7 iPhone 8 all look similar? Not a lot has changed? Why? Apple gotten lazy? Trillion-dollar company. iOS is amazing experience but apple refuses to give head phone Jack, SD card Slot, fast charging comes in box, Samsung to its iphone users. why? Apple worth buying over Samsung. Apple is killing themselves off.
      Samsung Galaxy phones are getting better and faster each year Its expensive just like a iPhone but you get more and can do more.
      Apple has to get there head out of there asses and start giving people what they want.
      I am just giving true facts about apple. If you don't see the bigger picture Captain croissant then your head is stuck way far in aswel.
      Dont wasts your money on apple until they smarting up and start giving you what you deserve in a phone. Don't settle with what they give you.

    • Captain Croissant

      Phillip jay You’re missing the picture man. Did you not see the video. People buy them for different reasons. There’s the overall perception that they have more value (which keeps their price from dropping). There’s the interaction with the ecosystem and their exclusive Apple software, Optimization, etc. Samsung is known for the best hardware on the Android side, but their software support is lackluster, and their cameras are being outperformed by Pixel.
      I’m an Android person too. I fucking hate iOS’ lack of features and customization. But completely disregarding its strengths is stupid.

    I bought a bunch of apple stuff, I feel like u can’t really compare them, I love both android and apple. The latest iPhone is really not worth it. Rather buy an iPad Pro or MacBook Pro. Get them second hand hahaha. Apple is really about doing simple shit. If u wanna get technical and do all kinds of things, use android. Apple is for if u use multiple device and they just sync real quick. Try apple if u haven’t, ull see the difference. Don’t judge without trying. :)

    I bought the XS plus & I absolutely hate it. For what I paid for this phone, I’m completely disappointed. I actually prefer my 6s plus over my XS plus. I had the XS plus for a month & a half & the screen stopped working. Warranty replaced it, but my phone still freezes & glitches constantly. It doesn’t feel like an apple phone to me. This will be the last apple phone I ever buy.

  • Someday I Will Fly In Interstellar Space

    I switched to Android for the first time when I replaced my iPhone 6. The reasons were: Apple gives me no options when it's obvious they could if they wanted, but they'd rather remove the few useful options I have. No headphone jack. Dongle hell. Hideous notch. Overpriced accessories. Planned obsolescence. Updates that literally strip the phone of all its most useful features and replace them with crappy ones. The Galaxy Note 9 is better in every way. I have a hard time imagining myself going back to Apple any time soon with their profoundly self-defeating business model which has perplexed me more or less ever since Steve Jobs passed away.

    Linus & Team, first of all, let me say I think you’re brilliant! And also I haven’t read the other comments but I assume you have, so if this was said already, I’m sorry; you are incorrect regarding screenshots.
    They never removed the option to save screenshots to photos. It goes there by default.
    The quickest way to save a screenshot and be done is to swipe it away to the left side without ever opening it. Then you don’t have to “exit the screenshot” and confirm keeping it, or even choose the save location. It all instantly goes to photos. The same thing happens if you literally don’t touch anything after you take the screenshot, it just takes longer to wait for it to do it on its own.
    Now, this does not mean I’m defending Apple. This whole process is still bulky and terrible and I get JUST as annoyed with Apple when I go through this process as well. But I did want to try and lesson your frustration if I could even a little by correcting this small oversight in procedure.

    If this dude don’t fucking stop with this bullshit nitpicking like all the fucking Samsung phone looks the same. Pay attention now Samsung does this every year they release the next note then the next Samsung s phone is just the last note phone without the fucking pen nothing ever changes the only super cycle I’ve ever been alive for the Samsung phones is the Samsung s 10 that’s it. And Linus stop oh I can’t save my photos by choosing the photos thing how much time are you wasting by the reading two things and why do you freaking want upgradable storage for your phone 📲 oh I can buy a tiny chip to make the storage bigger just buy the bigger storage version it not that hard. And if it is really that hard for you to press things on the bigger version then don’t buy it buy the Xs so you can use one handed and don’t complain about the bigger on because you have tiny hands. So I’m sorry Linus I like your content and your videos are amazing but just stick to computer stuff don’t try with this phone vids all you do is nitpick iPhones and say almost nothing bad about the Samsung phones

    If you like a device that just works out of the box and you really don’t have to think about how it should look, where to put stuffs, then iOS is really great. It’s super responsive, and you get a long time software support from Apple. If you are a guy who likes to tweak, who likes to customize deeply, cares about seeing how the software utilizes the hardware (eg. ram management, background services that are running, etc) and anything technical, then Android will probably be the right product for you. Apple designed iOS for the average consumer, and Android was designed to be flexible and dynamic that’s why Android is an open-source technology.
