Brace yourself, organs are going on the black market for the iPhone X.

I haven’t seen the keynote yet, but $2,000 for a phone, seriously this fucker better be making me coffee in the morning, if I have to sell my fucking kidneys and right leg to buy this one.

Ooh it offers a Face ID, cool so now I can stick a photo up at the camera and unlock my phone - security!!

It’s got a wireless charger***, sort of, still needs a useless ugly fucking charging pad .

And they’re even nice enough to put those shitty ear pods in the box.

Fuck you apple, I think it’s time I jumped off this over priced band wagon.

    Yeah and since it was a so much good deal, I guess I'll spend 300$ for the fuckin Apple Care too
  • 3
    They seriously include the crappy earpods? That's curious

    @pizza
    What’s another $300 for apple care when your already at $1800.

    in the box for both 8 and X phones you get EarPods


    Included Headphones

    EarPods with Lightning Connector
    Lightning to 3.5-mm Headphone Jack Adapter

    I actually like wireless charging. And since you need a pad, my phone always has a default location if I look for it.
    Besides that, my 300€ Nexus 4 from 2013 also charges wirelessly.

    It’s something I was hoping apple would actually do properly, given the years the tech has already been available. But nope just half assed apple courage again.

    Why are y'all this angry about a product? It's not even the base model, chill your fuciing nipples!

    Some devRant user: it only has 3gb of ram

    FUCKING HELL APPLE, YOU'VE CROSSED THE FUCKING LINE OF ONLY INCLUDING FUCKING 3GB OF FUCKING RAM AT THAT PRICE POINT!!!

    I can buy a laptop with that money.

    @cassandrale179 you can buy a specked out Macbook pro with that money

    @inukinator
    Rams not an issue, apple have always managed to have a low resource OS that keeps up with high end apps.

    Sorry I’ll just go save $400 and go buy an iPhone 8 instead . Shit 400 bucks gets you a lot these days. 0.3 inches.... oh and removal of the Touch ID which I can now use one of the cameras with my face. Winning.

    Now don’t get me wrong I have been an iPhone user for a many years. This is just a money grabbing arse rape from apple with nothing actually new to offer.

    Apple has not been the same, since Jobs passed. There was once a time they actually took the world forward, now they are playing catch up and charging the world for it.

    @hacker to be fair, it's not their only selling point, the other is the Apple logo on the back.
  • 1
    @Artemix Really? Huh, I didn't know that.
  • 1
    @inukinator ah, yes indeed.
    But seriously, I could buy a decent laptop, camera, AND phone for the same amount (more or less) than this thing with the Apple logo on it...

    You can buy that cool new linux phone people have been buzzing about that you can install any linux OS on, and you can hook up to a monitor and keyboard and mouse.

    Australian prices are always including GST (VAT).

    So USD $999 ~ AUD $1245

    GST of 10% gives AUD $1369.5

    So yes, it does cost less in USA, but not as much as many might think.

    @JustKidding for my LG G5 Todo it I just replaced the NFC sticker with a NFC+wireless charging sticker. Cost me $25 and like $300 for the LG G5 (this was two years ago)

    Let's not forget expensive != bad. I'd get it if it were about $1000 less, but let's no forget what accomplishments apple shows with the X.
    - they have their *own* kernel
    - ^written in objective-c none the less^
    - they made secure encryption system, hard for NSA even to crack
    - they set the standard for all other phones (does s8 have a headphone jack???)
    - they make all their own processors
    - they managed the social side of it so well they get people to buy $2000 phones

    @calmyourtities AND it's 1200 usd, not 2k

    @inukinator umm… they could make it $5000, they just want something for the apple fanboy/rich guy, while still having something to appeal for average consumer

    @calmyourtities Fun fact samsung made the A10 processor last I checked not apple. And hard to crack secure encryption was in my laptop that was made in 2010 had a TPM chip (secure encryption key storage). And the face login is the same tech Windows Hello uses. Apple hasn't brought anything new to the table in a very very very long time other than a bunch of proprietary bullshit charging cords and putting only a single USB C port on the MacBook (which everyone hated)
  • 1
    @gitlab whats your point?
  • 0
    @calmyourtities My point is that their charging way too much for no good reason. If there was something truly innovating about it I would say worth the $1K but it's not, this is basically $300 or so dollars worth of materials charged as if it were all solid gold.

    I’ve come across laptops that could do that.

    Mirabook for example. Where you plug your phone in and the laptop runs off the phone.

    But having it work like a proper dock would be awesome.

    If only Pixel phones are available in Lebanon, they get direct update from Google and that's enough for me.
    Right now I'm using an Xperia X5 Compact and couldn't be more happy.
    But let's admit it, for average users iPhones are much better all my non tech friends have iPhones and they never faced an issue with it, good battery life and easy to use.
    As for Android the only two versions I used with no issues are v4.4 and v7.x unless they are vanilla Android.
    My dad is using an Android 4.4 and no fucking issue for the past three years, a friend with same phone on v5 and was full of issues.

    I'm literlaly just staring at my screen with an open mouth and mixed emotions. Mixed emotions as in 'are there really people who are fucking retarded enough to buy this shit?!?" and "natural selection, please help out a little here".

    I hope they'll pull one of those pranks again where they say something might help with your new iPhone if you just do something with it (like the microwave 'wireless' charging with the 5 or something and the 'drill a hole in the bottom of your iphone seven to get the fucking jackplug back') because that would be very fun to see.

    I read somewhere that they wanted the whole screen to be a finger print sensor... Turned out they couldn't do it (yet) so they had to "invent" a new unlocking technology to replace the home button. Welcome to Face ID.

    I laughed and double-tapped my LG phone on the screen to unlock it and laugh even harder... LG Knock On ftw!
