    Note 9 = 2018 phone running 2017 software for $1,000

    iPhone XS Max = 2018 phone running 2018 software $1,000

    The iPhone gets 5 years of updates and the Note gets 3 years of updates. The tech media ignoring the software issues with Samsung.

    This prove cnet as bias proof is all 3 of them use Apple, I watched the whole video and not once did they question the iphone price if it was worth the upgrade like they did the note9 which cost more and offers less. Not once did they question the same exact design like they did the note9, even tho Samsung made smaller bezel and the back redesign Apple did absolutely nothing. Sfware Apple did nothing other than camera stuff which the note9 did as well plus the note9 has a new camera module a variable aperture. they spend a good 40% of there time questioning the note9 worth the money and never questioned the iphone.

    You have a guy using a iPhone 5c on your panel. You should pay your workers more I guess

    Stop complaining about prices. They have options for your budget!

    Just watching to see if they where as bias as the note9. They was giving Samsung a hard time over price and was it worth the upgrade eventho Apple has the same EXACT design and cost more and did less as far as features, Im watching to see if they are as critical on Apple

    Ok, here’s my view on it. What else do they need to do? Of course get rid of the notch. Maybe input in screen Touch ID. But at some point people won’t notice how fast it processes, how fast the animations are, or how colorful the screen is. We will hit a wall with what we’re going to be able to do. From everything that I’ve seen from the tech community, they ask for more battery life, but it’s gets thicker and they complain. Nobody seems to be satisfied anymore. That one product can literally do billions of things at once and they aren’t satisfied. So I ask this, when are you going to be satisfied with what a phone can do?

    Wow. I’ve followed you for years now. And she has no idea what she’s talking about. How can the Apple Watch become smaller? Who’s after smaller watches? I’m puzzled? A smart watch what doesn’t display anything because it’s too small. Wow. Haha. Sucky review.
