Yeah but it's not an iPhone so it has to be better, right?

That doesn't look very good. But I'm sure it will sell like hotcakes.

I bet it looks way better in black. I'm sure it will be the highest selling iPhone ever...just like every other one has been.

I thought I read some where that this one was only coming out in black. The rumor could be wrong as most times with iPhones... it is.

Just saw some tid bits on the iPhone event.

My main take aways
1) iPhone X UI is terrible. Swipe up to close an app, swipe up and hold to view open apps, swipe down from right side for action center and left for notifications.
2) X is $1000, uses only face ID for unlock no fingerprint
3) there will now be the SE, 6s, 7, 8, & X all on sale at the same time. Presumably because the 6s is the last with a headphone jack.
4) wireless charging yay for 4 year old tech in an iPhone. Although I'm salty my pixel doesn't have it.
5) the 8 and X both only have a 64 or 256 GB option which is actually pretty cool since iCloud is useless.
6) the cut out in the X screen appears to cut off that portion of the app/video. It was seen in pictures an demos but I bet that will be fixed by launch.

Pre orders start October 27 for the iPhone X. I'm guessing no one here will be getting it.

I did forget to mention the best new feature is apparently some kind of animated emojis, which I'm sure none of us can live without

You literally just described the resolution of the Emoji Movie plot.

That is a mess. What are the differences from 7 to 8 and 8 to X? X is such a dumb name. X side bezel is no different than my Pixel, their sides are actually worse.

I am also salty about this.

Was the keynote today or did they just release info about the phone?

Keynote was today

They actually named it "Ten" but use Roman numerals instead of 10. I'd prefer calling it X since they skip iPhone 9. Or is next year iPhone 9. Or is this windows all over again.

iPhone X has bezel less display SUPER retina display (slightly better than 1080p lower than 1440) no touch ID just face ID.

iPhone 8/8+ supports HDR still 720p/1080p though. Same A11 processor as X. Some camera improvements.

Literally the 6s, 7, & 8 look nearly identical aside from the glass back on the 8 to allow for wireless charging.

I would not want to be in wireless sales this holiday season for that mess.

That is really dumb they skipped 9 if this is 10 and not X.

I know it's fun to hate on Apple, but this all seems silly

The dumbest thing from the keynote
Apple calling its stores ‘town squares’ is a pretentious farce

hose shops you go to to buy a Mac or haggle over a broken phone screen should, and will be, much more than that, said Ahrendts: “They are gathering places.”

She went on to describe how Apple Stores will transform from simply commercial spaces to locations where the company will develop “communities”: host concerts, lead workshops, offer up meeting rooms, and teach everything from coding to photography to music-making. Apple frames these disciplines as modern equivalents to the Medieval trivium — an essential educational resource that makes a person a person.

Above all, said Ahrendts, Apple wants its stores to be places to hang out. Places you go to because everyone needs somewhere to be other than their home and office. We were told to “imagine movie night" in an Apple store, and shown how the company’s latest space would “transform [Chicago’s] riverfront." Like Uber moving into public transport and Google bringing back the company town, Apple, too, wants to reconfigure civic life around itself and its ideals

Wilkins might qualify. I assume you did too?
