    And as expected the price keeps on going up up up. 1k US for a mobile phone is pretty much insanity imo.

    I'd rather buy a sub 200€ phone and use the rest to build a gaming PC.
    But for people buying this, money won't be an issue.

    The specs are pretty good from CPU, screen, camera, etc. Now if they can just get the price down. Maybe we will see this sell next year with there famous rebradning for cheaper once the next phones come out an XSE version or likes. For me that is way to steep. I admit I use iphones mostly because I'm in tech and an enthusiast so the last thing I want is to jack with configuring a phone so I just go for the dumb down phones that just work. Personal thing I know everyone is different.

    I was hoping they would find a way to incorporate Touch ID... nope. It's going to be a lot more inconvenient using your face for mobile payments and authentication.

    To be fair, they've definitely made major strides in OLED since 2013.

    But using common sense and logic might be a big issue for them. Let alone understanding value of things.

    LOL So they basically copy the LG G6 and thin out the border more but still stay 16:9. Screw Apple. And they still dont even have a wide angle camera on Overpriced Iphones.

    Ah, excuse me--I believe you mean it has a 'ultra retina display' using 'retina technology' which has a 'retina x retina reso-retina'......

    Looks more like they copied the "Essential" phone than the G6.

    The G6 was one of the first in recent time that went for the rounded off screen edges. That's why I made that comparison. It one of the reasons I bought the G6, plus I love LG phones and how much they update them. Even the G5 is getting Andriod 8 and it started off on Android 5.

    £1149 here... how or why anyone would buy this is beyond me.... Apple just trying to get as much money out of their fanboys as humanly possible.... it is now in the price range of a mid-high range PC... i'd rather buy the new Sony XZ would cost me 50% less and perform better and actually have a decent battery life

    finally the masses seem to be irked a little late in my opinion all manufacturers been slowly upping it every year with each new model not cause of costs but for profits...

    Never owned a single product made by Apple, and never will...;) Company has yet to make anything that interests me. Oh, the stories I could tell...;) Apple: Ugh.

    Samsung supplying the OLEDs is hilarious (at least that's what a lot of tech blogs have been reporting)

    Don't be so sure. There are people out there keeping their iphones all day long on hands for people to keep seeing them in order to avoid they wear shoes with wholes.

    Looks like a nice phone, but I will be purchasing a cheaper phone that price is way to high
