    £1.35k on a phone! :D
    Come on - what justifies it? It isn’t more powerful than similarly priced laptops and certainly not desktops (or that more powerful than an iPhone 6).

    I'm simply imparting my wisdom. Trying to educate people who think that paying over 1300 quid for an inferior phone is sensible. But I can only lower the ladder. You must make the effort to grasp it and climb onto it.

    Is XS extra small?

    I doubt anyone on here even thinking about an iPhone Xs is even considering the top end £1300 one. Unless you’re doing loads of videos you don’t need the storage space of that model. So I don’t know why everyone keep quoting the £1300 as if everyone buying an Xs is actually spending that much.

    And if they are, and they can afford it and want it. Who gives a shit.

    Is that what it is: storage for videos?
    Anyone wanting to spend that kind of cash would buy a dedicated camera!

    You can store whatever you want on it, but with iCloud storage working very well when it comes to photo and video it seems an excessive amount of local storage. All my photos currently only use 230mb on my device. 14gb is in use out of 64gb and I’ve had the phone almost 12 months.

    The only other reason i can see is games, but there’s better devices to play games on and you can get a pretty impressive pc gaming rig for the same price. So I doubt it’s gamers buying 256GB of storage.

    The cheapest one is a grand. That's still 3 times the price of a far superior phone. The top of the range is £1450.
    If people driving ridiculously overpriced cars are fair game on here, then so should Apple fanboys, with their ridiculously overpriced phones.

    And like the cars. The owners troll you and you troll the owners. In reality everyone thinks they are getting one over the other but actually both sides don’t really give a shit other than to think they are winding each other up.

    Exactly! I don't care what phone someone owns. I just love winding up Apple fanboys :D

    No, I just mean why do people seem to get so upset about it. They charge a ridiculous amount because people will pay it. Who cares?

    For your information and education, it was actually an Android phone that was the first with a notch.

    HTH. HAND.

    Oh and don't call me a twat please. It's not my fault that you got your facts all muddled up! :D

    It’s about 1.5cm.

    Do you describe your penis as “monster” too? :(

    Using the small/far away principle. It seems it's actually bigger than a human being (the notch, not editor's penis)

    Compared to a screen with no ugly notch yes it is big and ugly. And other manufacturers do have much smaller ones. Can't see how anyone can describe them as a nice design feature, and I'm really not sure why my monster unleashed cobra schlonger is involved in this discussion.

    I really don't have a problem with the notch. I don't know why some people find it so irritating.

    It's either that or bezel if you want a front facing camera and ear speaker. All Apple are doing is adding some extra screen around the edges of the area that cannot be screen. It's entirely something I can live with and don't even think about.

    You could always get a PIxel 3 if you want the best of both worlds, a hideous notch AND a bezel :D

    Or just get a Galaxy S9 which looks positively futuristic compared to both *and* comes with a glorious headphone jack for everlasting, no-charging-or-adaptors-needed listening pleasure. That changes everything!

    Oh god yes.

    I see the mega-expenssive Pixel Slate has binned the headphone jack too. Bastards.

    It is the future, sadly. Thanks Apple, you wasteful cunts.

    But Apple are the ones who influence the industry, what with them being the richest fuckers on the planet.

    Indeed and I remember a certain Android love raving about that first G1 and dismissing comments about tbt head phone jack as no big deal at the time.

    It’s funny how it’s an outrage when Apple does it but when everyone else follows it’s fine. See also: the notch.

    That must be because they make dreadful overpriced tat that no one wants to buy.
