Yup. I love my latest tech and have always bought the latest iPhone on launch day but swerved it last year for the first time. So I'll be jumping from my current 7 to the XS for sure.

Will probably make the trusty 7 last another year, although if the flagship phone (whatever it's called) is incredible then I might be tempted.

I’ve been waiting to see what the series 4 watch ends up with.... may end up getting a discounted series 3 watch instead!

And may bag a cheaper IPhoneX at the same time... they will all look the same after all!

I moved away from Apple years ago now and really can't see why I would go back. Their phones are always playing catchup and generally have less useability, for example no expandable memory and not as much customisation available in terms of layouts etc.

They are also comically expensive. The new Galaxy s10 will doubtless wipe the floor with these new phones and with the likes of the Howareweeeee P20 around Apple are just pricing themselves out if the market.
It annoys me alot of car manufacturers still only offer Apple car play and not android auto as well!!

ETTO. I still vastly prefer my iPhone7 in many ways to my (one gen newer) Note8. The Apple is way more stable, reliable and faster. The Samsung has a much better screen and camera.

I've had Samsung/HTC and iPhones alongside each other for about six years and it's always the iPhone that I reach for.

Staff like this always makes mu chuckle. So Iphone 7 is more "productive" in business / everyday environment than flagship workhorse Note? Stable , reliable , faster? You cannot do sh1t on iphone apart from music and animated emoticons.
Split screen , no thank you. Multitasking , no thank you. Fast charge , no thank you.
But you can facetime up to 32 people. Wow!😁
Business device my ass. Rant over , nothing against user 😁.

Upgrade time for me, normally go for the iPhone, but wonder if it’s worth waiting to see what the foldable Samsung will look like:

I have both an andriod (S8) work phone and iphone 8 personal.

IMO for what in use it for (calls, chat, odd apps - my camera/ nest etc) the iphone wons hands down.... guaranteed latest ios (unlike how andriod is pushed out) as long as the phone is within a few years... and more stable.... without countless updates samsung push out.

Only area’s my samsung wins over is when it comes to photo’s and picture quality and the screen quality/ feel.

Also the iphone maybe more expensive but i always sell my old ones when i am done.... and the iphone retain their value better too.

I have Android and iPhone, I much prefer the ease of the latter. I couldn't give a damn about expandable storage, I have 256 and its not even half used. I am very happy with the camera on the X. The iPhone works more seamlessly with more things and as all the family and extended family have them it makes life much easier with family settings, sharing things etc....

Though to be fair I'm too far into the Apple ecosystem to turn back now (ipads/tv etc), but nor would I want to.

Plan was to go from an iphone 6 to the X earlier this year. Ended up with a S9+

I don't miss my apple... yet!
