    S10 / S10+, Note 10, Pixel 4/4XL. Could probably add the Huawei P30 Pro to the mix.

    Samsung updates in March/April (6-7 months before the 11), and Google updates in October (P4 announcement Oct 15).
    Is the P30 Pro Android with the App Store though? I thought they lost it. Also thanks, I’m hoping to snag a decent deal on Boxing Day so probably Pixel 4 vs S10+ vs 11 pro

    What you bring up is a good point though, Apple isn't always the first because competitors throw out half baked solutions just to be first. Samsung's Face Unlock on the S8 was literally released as a useless feature just to be first by 6 months. It was comical how bad it was. I could be wrong, but I'm fairly certain no other face unlock allow NFC payments today still?
    If it is shit, Apple abandons it. Like Air Power or whatever it was. I know when they come out with a Foldable OLED screen, it isn't going to be a fiasco.

    The one I am scared about is the X. The 6 was ok, had to replace one of those. 7 was under apple care. Neither the X or the XS have used apple care. Apple is making money this round.
    I just replaced the screen on my x in Singapore and it cost me $400.00 Canadian

    Give Apple creds that they are keeping low cost options which they weren't before. iPhone 11 is $50 cheaper than Xr and cheap iPad actually get smart connector and it would be the cheapest device that get you 1 year of Apple TV+.

    A13 seems powerful to an already great A12. Video editing and processing is still quicker on iOS devices. I don't see anything from Android world that can keep up on these fronts even if other technical specs are inferior/lagging from Apple.
    The android world stopped making high end tablets a long time ago, as I mentioned already apple has that entire market for themselves pretty much. They do the best job at it and have the best tablet-specific apps. The android tablet value proposition has shifted to the ultra-low end like with the Amazon Fire tablets, which are hard to beat for $80 or whatever. On the phone side, as I've said before, processor speed stopped being a big deal years ago - if everything you do is already virtually instant, it doesn't really matter if this year's processor is 10% faster or 100% faster as long as every interaction with the device is still super fast and lag-free. Desktop processors have been struggling with that for a while now too. Everything including basic video/photo editing is pretty much instant on my Pixel 3XL at the moment, I don't expect any difference when the P4 comes out either and I am sure it's the exact same story on the new iPhones. It's not like people are commonly editing large RAW files or high bitrate log video on their phones though. Heavier editing duties sucks on everything that isn't a powerful PC - even a super tiny RAW file from my Mavic 2 Pro in Affinity on my iPad Pro 11 takes 6-7 seconds just to open and become viewable. I use LumaFusion for video editing and it can handle log footage but it's neither the fastest nor the most feature rich program - it's the best I've been able to find though. Phones from all manufacturers have been pretty well instant-fast for quite a while now, so the main differentiation seems to be on other fronts like the cameras, styling, or unique features like 3D touch or project Soli.

    I don't know the full story with Huawei to be honest but I do believe there are some restrictions on their phones. I would never buy one anyway for a number of reasons, but a big one is if they get themselves in more trouble with he North American governments, I wouldn't want to be stuck with their hardware.

    I don't know why these threads always have to become an Android versus Apple dick measuring contest. I like a good debate as much as the next guy but come on, both ecosystems are good and have lots of positives to discuss.

    Its like a vegan jumping into the BBQ & Smoking thread talking about how steamed veggies are the way to go and way better then Barbecued meat. Sure its their opinion and that is fine; it just adds nothing to the conversation.

    Dicks and Meat. There might be some dudes out there that need the new ultra-wide camera for dick picks. rage2 is clearly not one of them.

    Clearly HarmonyOS will defeat both Android and IOS.

    Amazon FireOS which is basically just a shell for Android definitely went low-end, but in a good way. In Canada all the tablets they ship up here automatically have all the advertisements disabled by law. The last Fire 8 HD tablet I got was $52 Cdn shipped - A crazy deal by any proposition if you know how to spend 15 minutes to get google play on it.

    So when you want to trade your old device to Apple do you just take the phone and box and accessories and ask for it to be traded towards a new phone? I am thinking over a couple hundred I am just gonna trade in my iPhone XS Max. They will give me $700 and perhaps on Kijiji it'll fetch a $1000 but the amount of headache is not worth it.

    I don’t think they care about anything but the phone.

    I also think condition factors into the value

    Would've liked to see higher refresh screens / 128gb base on the pro lineup. Not really worth upgrading if you have an XS unless you really want the camera upgrade IMO.

    yep thats pretty much the process. Don't even think you need to give them the box or headphones... just phone, charger, and cable and they will give you back an apple store gift card.

    that said, is it in good shape and how many GB? If you're in Calgary any time soon, depending on condition i would offer you $50 more than whatever apple is going to give you.

    It's in pretty good condition just the usual wear and tear. Bottom right corner has some extreme light blemishes somehow that are only visible in some lights (at least from where I am sitting tight now) lol. Gold, 64GB version. I think it might still have some warranty left. I got it just after release day last year. If you're serious about it shoot me a PM and when the new one comes out I will just go out and get that and then set up something with you. You don't need to give me any more than what Apple would because if I am going to go that route anyway, I don't mind sorting a Beyond'er out. Just a caveat though, I haven't 100% made up mind about going for the new one yet and in fact sometimes think that it's not really worth upgrading from the XS Max so there is that odd chance that I may not bother upgrading - at least not on the release day or anything like that. Also if I do I would want the Green colour so not sure what the availability of that will be like.

    As a side note, I really wish they'd make an iPhone similar to Note series that has an inbuilt pen. I end up purchasing at least one Note every year simply because of that aspect as it allows me to sign documents and review paperwork by marking etc. on the go. Currently I am stuck having to pull out my iPad Pro which I don't always carry with me in my briefcase. But because I am so into iOS I end up not sticking to Note either. So an iPhone with that would be absolutely perfect.

    Did anyone pre-order early this morning?

    I wasn't really interested on the 11 Pro but work was able to order me one for less than the value of my X, so free upgrade for me.
    I ordered a 64GB 11 Pro on midnight green (I wanted the silver but curiuos to see the midnight green in person , plus it will always be on a case )

    I grabbed 2 256 Gold 11 pros for pickup at 8am.

    Nearly $2,200 with apple care, tax and folio case. Fuck me.

    I ordered 2 iPhone 11 pro max 256gb and then realized I chose the wrong address on my apple pay (I won't get them until the 23rd), so I ordered 2 more to my work lol. So if anyone wants a space grey or green one I have a few extras for what I paid - otherwise I'll return them when they arrive

    EDIT: order finally updated and was able to cancel the two
