Waiting for Apple to release their folding phone, so we can progress from "nobody needs a folding phone" to "my folding iPhone is great" stage of acceptance on this forum.

Meanwhile, IPhone 14 will have a smaller notch.
Kind of feel that iPhones are getting obsolete before they even go to market.

A friend of mine bought one about a year ago and I have to say, the screen looks really good. I was pretty impressed. The fingerprint sensor on the side is a nice feature too. I really wish Apple would do that.

Android Take The L


But seriously, these things are still overpriced gimmicks. $1800 is more than a lot of Macs.
Nah Android is good. I mentioned this a million times but without android, Apple will be the intel of quad core processors and still sell 3.5 inch phones with 8gb storage and 1gb ram.
