    Nah, most of us just appreciate the seamless integration w/ the software and hardware, a virtually non-existent malware threat, an experience devoid of lag, a device that will get updates for at least 4 years, and the best apps usually built iOS first or iOS only.

    The first speed benchmarks are in, and they aren't surprising. :jj:

    How big is it? The last couple releases were more like tablets which is why I'm still using a really old iphone model.

    There's just no denying any of that without looking like a retard.

    They do get a lot of things right much better than many other manufacturers.

    That's impressive.

    Microsoft's vision was to put Windows on a phone and create a full desktop experience with a docking station. Looks like that's really possible right now with the current mobile cpu speeds. Too bad this one is an apple proprietary design.

    Since they started designing their own mobile CPUs instead of using an off the shelf ARM design, they've been killing it with various benchmarks.

    Yep. Their architectures are human designs, too. Not computer-designes. They're the only ones who are doing it that way at the moment, which is why their chips are faster and more efficient, and more expensive than all the others.

    When the batteries don't explode it's clear the Note is the best phone on the market.

    barely bigger than the iPhone 6 or 7, considerably smaller than the plus versions

    Don't forget the complete lack of customization, the clumsiest backup system on the planet (iTunes? Really? LOL!), technology that's 2-3 years behind other manufacturers and on and on.
    Oh and let's not skip over the pricing of their PCs and laptops. I just built a monster gaming computer with 32gb RAM, the latest Intel i7 processor, a killer GTX 1080 video card and 3 TB of hard drive space (500gbs of that SSD). Yet it was still probably one third the price of the MAC.

    Now I'm actually not an Apple or fanboy hater.
    The products are what they are. Simple, shiny, insanely overpriced, completely locked down yet easy to use hardware.

    Anyone know what the aspect ratio is on the X and is the official screen size including the notch or not including the notch??

    I remember reading that it's 19.5:9 or something lIke that. It looks to me that the usable space for apps is still around 16:9.
