    Linus, I'm a fan....

    But "You have to shift your finger to swipe up from the bottom"?
    *Seriously?* do you people even see what you are complaining about? Technology made things waay easier than they were, instead of having to type in passwords and all, you just have to glance at the phone. I don't care if... I have to "shift" my finger to get it right...
    If the fact that a phone where you don't have to swipe up to use face unlock makes you prefer it to another where you have to "shift" your finger a bit, then you have a major problem and your common sense is inexistent, and marketing controls you.

    And linus, you're just complaining about software convenience features, so this rant video is as good as nothing in my opinion.

    “The only thing Samsung needs to work on is software” literally the point of a phone is software yet Samsung can’t even push out updates in a timely manner. I know google owns android and they do the updates yet it shouldn’t take a company 8 months to push out the latest version of android.

    No reason to update from the 8 or the 7. Apple fans love to show off their powerful hardware on the new models (one generation ahead from Android), however their phones look 3 years dated.

  • Mall Plaza
    Mall Plaza 11 days ago

    Come on, Apple fired all their desingers and got the best engeniers. Lets talk about thier ARM Chips that are getting close to laptop CPUs. Thats whats exciting. Apple is about SoC and Optimization, not about phone inovation

  • ronch550
    ronch550 11 days ago

    It's like the race between the tortoise and the hare. Apple has become too confident that they'll stay ahead of everyone else and has become incredibly complacent. Meanwhile, companies like Huawei, Oppo, Xiaomi, Vivo and all their respective sub-brands (Honor, Realme, Redmi, OnePlus), and even comeback kid Nokia, are putting out phone after phone after phone every couple of weeks, experimenting with new things, pricing super aggressively to win marketshare, throwing all sorts of freebies with their phones, offering aggressive discounts on last year's phones (this helps increase mindshare of the brand even if they lose money with the sale!), spending tons on marketing, etc. It's only a matter of time before Apple fans realize that there's nothing special about Apple anymore and they can get products from someone else that are just as good if not better for a fraction of the price. Even camera performance, historically a huge Apple selling point, has long begun to erode and companies like Huawei have even recently put out phones like the P30 series that actually blow Apple's camera advantage out of the water. Lower-priced phones like those from Honor and Redmi offer 90% of Apple's camera performance with nifty AI tech at a fraction of the price. And while Apple still makes the fastest processors, companies like Qualcomm, Samsung, Mediatek and Huawei aren't sitting around twiddling their thumbs either. Besides, who needs the fastest processors when most folks will be perfectly happy with the performance of even a midrange SoC like the Helio P60 or Kirin 710? Apple will either have to seriously step up their game, start to price their stuff a lot more competitively (which is a tough pill for them to swallow because they're so used to super fat margins) or abandone the smartphone market altogether if their market share dips too low for their liking. Oh and yeah have I mentioned how boring Apple's designs have become next to the competition? I saw the Oppo F11 Pro and Honor 8X recently in person and boy, are they stunning!! Finally, as this video mentioned, their software just sucks. Their walled garden mentality doesn't help at all either.
    Apple will absolutely lose the smartphone race in 1-2 years as people start to not care about them anymore. Big players like Samsung and Huawei aren't going to cede any marketshare so easily either as they continue to hit Apple in the high end and offer cheaper phones to stave off competition from below. Apple, on the other hand, will continue to stagnate, fall behind on innovation, will likely continue to be unwilling to drop prices, will likely continue to be unwilling to offer more than a few new phones each year because they're just lazy, and continue to be unwilling to offer cheaper phones to fend off the likes of Vivo, who are also creeping up the price ladder to challenge Apple right inside their throne room. You'll see, Apple will be the next Atari. Grab some popcorn. Perhaps, when they've eventually gone through something like what Nokia went through, they'll start to rethink their strategy.

  • ronch550

    I dunno if Apple is just really stubborn and proud or they're just oblivious to what everyone else is selling.

  • Scott Flood

    I was an Apple fan, and still own a ton of their products. But EVERY year, the "Apple died with Steve Jobs" statement gets more and more clear. If they don't kill the "apple knows best philosophy" and listen to their fanbase, I really hope they tank. It's seriously getting bad.

    • Scott Flood
      Scott Flood 8 days ago

      Absolutely. I'm not saying they will disappear and they have died as a company, but if they continue to treat their consumers ignorantly (as livestock), I "HOPE" THEY DO (However unlikely that may be)... Sure, they can go on making money and surviving for a very long time even with major revenue declines, but the vision and execution of Apple from Steve Jobs has been lost. Many of their products just don't make sense any more even to the people that buy them, and are consistently becoming less and less reliable. All the while, Apple refuses to acknowledge their mistakes (the Butterfly switch keyboard for instance). I just wish we could hold them accountable. What they're doing as a company is not ok. Thats my opinion.+Marcus Andrews

    Still no other real options for the privacy conscious individual, besides an older iPhone. Or you could roll the dice and try and install a custom rom on an Android phone, but more manufacturers are making that harder, because why would they want to let you bypass their data collection streams.
