    May I add that the entire fu**ing industry is going to follow Apple on this #8 for some time... Google is going to do this for it's new Pixel... Smartphone industry is looking like an 80's horror movie, 'let's follow the dumb one, might work...'

    It’s because the battery on these phones is immense. I can’t get over how good the battery on my 8 plus, I’ve even disabled the screen timeout and I still end the day on 40% or more.

    It’s far better than any Android phone out there, I actually had a Note8 for a week before the iPhone, it was utter garbage and I had to return it. Android feels like it hasn’t changed since 2012.

    So much hate for Apple and iPhone users in the comments. I’ve never had any respect for anyone who uses the term “isheep” etc.

    So what? Who cares who or what you respect? It won't change my life or opinion one iota.

    Quick suggestion; quit posting crap like you think you matter.

    Is that enough respite from the silence?

    I've never had any respect for Apple at all, I came into the thread to read about everyone posting "iSheep".

    Whoa guys, calm down.

    @Sausagemeat I think most readers of Techspot simple don't have much consideration for Apple and it's bussiness pratices. That's the point. Coming here to defend apple is like putting your hand in a wasp nest... Don't expect to get out unharmed.

    @erickmendes I think there's a lesson for Mr. Meat in there somewhere![​IMG]
