Who wants one? You can have it today! It's called the Samsung Galaxy S8 and it's on average 300 dollars cheaper.

Seriously. Y'all know I love Apple products. But not this one. Steve Jobs is rolling in his grave and might even be poking a bony finger out of the ground in protest.

That camera "tray" is hideous. FaceID didn't work the first time they demoed it. Not having an actual button and swiping instead... just, no.

Camera tray is HORRIBLE. Not sure how people aren't going to break that instantly. And yeah, I saw a funny Meme. "Simplicity can be harder than anything else, here's an iPhone" - Steve Jobs "YO DAWG WE GOT 10 DIFFERENT FUCKING MODELS" - Apple Now

I like the full screen thing, but some of the other features that people are talking about baffle me.

Face unlock? Um... Is that supposed to be new? I used that like 3 years ago on an Android. Fingerprint unlock on the back is way more convenient.

Wireless charging? Cool, but that's been a thing for ages.

Apple fans are such saps.

I saw some apple fans talking about how cool it's going to be because Star Bucks is putting in Qi Chargers on their coffee counters. I'm like, "My local Star Bucks has had that forever and yeah it's great...since 2014".

I haven't even looked into it besides seeing the presentation shot with the prices. I don't need an iPad Pro and I don't need an iPhone X. Top of the line Apple products seem unecessary.

They must not be as big of a hit as advertised and hyped based on the 20 phone calls I've gotten from my local store to upgrade the 7 I just bought last year. Heck, it took me until two bills ago for them to fix the amount they've been charging me. The iPhone 12 would be out by the time they fixed this trade in.

I'm good with the 7+. I have the first Apple watch but I wouldn't mind having the latest one with the wi-fi. But I'll probably pass on that as well.

Well I'm looking at the Note 8 and iPhone X right now, we'll see which one I can get the better deal on. Hmmmm I'm guessing the Note.

Once the X is out, I'd be surprised if the Note 8 doesn't get more attractive price wise.
