[deleted post]When I’m with a mask I’m not suppose to use the phone anyway. And when I do use FaceID it just works way better than fingerprint scanners (I had one and it was one of the fastest out there). No multi finger scan required so you can unlock phone with either finger and no fingering of any part of the phone. I just hold it in front of myself like I always do when I’m using it. Usually only people who hate FaceID are the ones who never actually used it and they just regurgitate talking points against it from what they heard from someone else. I ended up liking it so much I don’t mind the notch which holds all the sensors for it.
Anonymous, 6 hours agoHow did the XR come into the picture? You are ranting. This guy knows I’m using iPhone XR and he always goes with his lame complaining how 60Hz is lame and how I have bad taste and low purchasing power (which is the most hilarious argument ever). Because using old device because it’s still so fast and runs very latest OS is somehow an absurd thing to do. If I had an Android I’d run out of updates last year and I’d be perpetually annoyed by the fact I’m not getting any updates, main or security. No such issues on iPhone so why not use it if it works well lol?

Normal people have just picked up an iPhone and put it in front of the person’s face and boom it unlocks… So much for security
This is the most boring phone ever made that most people like in the world. Hopefully they can add a periscope camera at least.

[deleted post]How do you even know he owns an XR ? lol and I thought apples criticism is they sell overpriced products for little specs? If he can afford the xr then he can certainly afford most high end android phones. what is your thought process? what a weird guy
[deleted post]“Way more secure” You can literally pick a fingerprint from display or glass back and use it to reproduce the fingerprint. Good luck doing the same with face.
Also only ones screaming how “no one wants FaceID” are basically everyone who don’t have it lol. iPhone users are very much happy with it, even with masks it’s not really that inconvenient.

Android can be easily repaired. The basic parts like screen etc are all standard and available.

I have used recently an Android 10 phone and it doesn’t look so nice as my other Android 11 phone. Of course, apps will still work even on a 3-4 years old Android version, but that doesn’t mean it looks nice. Even the simple notification bar looks outdated in Android 10 compared to Android 11.
The second part of your comment is true. iPhones are more expensive to repair than Android phones. But, the good part is that you can find any part easily. Having an Android phone that is not mainstream (like Samsung or Xiaomi models), will be very difficult to repair, because repair services just can’t find parts for it. The same goes when buying accessories for it (cases for example).
As always, HUUUUUUUUGE evolution of design since iPhone 12!

If they used an outline with a punch hole or none at all people wouldn’t even know the outline is representing a phone. It would just be some rectangular shape. Basic people complaining over notch, but Apple damn well knows it’s their trademark look, whether you like it or not.

If this is the case, Why everytime when android company gives a list for their supported devices, android users are all over the forums whining why my 2 years old phone is not getting this new OS when it’s perfectly capable of running it?
You are not fooling anyone, everyone want to their expensive devices to learn new tricks over the years, it makes you feel you get lot value for your money and then you propably support same company in future too.
Why you guys let these android companies get away with this? There’s no real reason why your old phone wouldn’t get new updates expect the fact that others doesn’t have ecosystem like Apple which makes money for them no matter if you upgrade or keep your device for many years. Android OEMs only have those unit sales, so they have to sell new phones and that’s why they give you crappy support.
But alteast it’s good to see many have woken up, because every year less and less high end android phones been sold, so it just shows more and more are woken up by this scam and they want value for their money so they go for iPhone.

No they won’t remove it, Face ID tech needs notch, it will be smaller this year.
“We are in 2021 and we are moving towards 2022, so no one has a smartphone with a notch anymore”
No-one else have Face ID either.
