    I definitely use my phone more than my MBP because it's always with me and more portable. There are a few things I just can't do enjoyably on my phone though. Forums is one. I've yet to have a good experience using forums on a phone, whether it be iOS or Android. I've used both browsers and apps, but I find it cumbersome to use the smaller display. Replying to quoted posts is one thing, but to browse random threads is another story. The format is plain better on a larger screen.

    I have and use Tapatalk for quick replies, but exploring and reading long threads is still a pain for me. I feel like I need to be able to see more than a small mobile display can offer. Of course, that's just my opinion. I'm not discounting yours. I know people who rarely if ever use anything other than their phones for anything.

    Came very close to getting an S9 today. But I didn't. I think the impulse is over... maybe...

    At least WWDC is around the corner. iOS12 beta could be refreshing enough to smash any notion of "cheating"...

    I took the SIM out of my X and put in it my S9+ about a week ago. I'm kinda furious that my X's battery is down to 97% capacity only after owning it for 3 months. A battery should never degrade that quickly. Samsung's battery's degrade only 5% after two years!

    If Apple doesn't figure out the battery technology in this year's iPhone, I won't be getting one. I can't imagine how terrible the battery capacity will be after a year of use if they don't change it.

    I got my X on launch day, and it's still at 100% capacity after 7 months.

    My wife’s X was purchased a few week after launch and is at 96%. Kind of disappointing if you ask me that it’s degrading that fast.

    Are you going to run out and get a Samsung S9?-img_0019.jpg

    FYI, we all know that battery health is in beta and may not be 100% correct, right?

    (I so wish that instead of a number, Apple put an indicator with three states: your battery is fine, your battery may need servicing soon, your battery needs servicing.)

    If it's not 100% correct then it shouldn't even be there in the first place.

    Mine too. But I stopped charging it with the cable and started using wireless charging. I've heard others complain that their batteries are degrading at a much faster rate using wireless charging than with the lightning cable. Either way, it's infuriating. A battery shouldn't degrade that much after a few months.

    Maybe they aren't using apple certified wireless chargers. I use the Belkin sold by Apple for a reason. It supports the 7.5 watt charging and I know they tested it and back it. My X is still at 100% capacity.

    It would've been nice if Apple told us that the Belkin wireless charger would specifically work for the X without contributing to battery degradation with use.

    That would take months of testing to know. I’m sure Apple has bigger and better things to do to test a 3rd party accessory. Considering they sell it in store, I’m sure it’s safe.

    Samsung phones for some reason have the worst battery for me. This is in every way the deal breaker.

    For me it’s the standby on Samsung phones that’s so bad. They’re terrible compared to other phones. Battery life while in use is actually pretty good on Samsung’s newer phones though.

    Accessories Sorry, I can't completely agree with your theory that it is just because it is an expensive phone. One example, why were few accessories made for the Essential phone -- it was a flagship priced at $800 at release; and is definitely a premium phone with it's Titanium and Ceramic construction -- yet almost no accessories are available for it....
    Sorry for the delayed response, but I have been unable to find time for the past couple of weeks to respond.
    When I said expensive devices, I may have given the wrong impression.
    My focus was more on, "if people spend $1000 on a phone, they will easily spend $50-100 on an accessory. But if the phone is $200 you feel hesitant to spend $100 on the same accessory."

    If you haven't seen the two videos hosted by Mr. Mobile and TechnoBuffalo in which they compared the iPhone X to the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, I recommend you take a look. You can view the iMore Blog link below.

    https://www.imore.com/galaxy-s9-vs-i...buffalo-collab

    With that being said, Mr. Mobile declared the Galaxy S9 his choice. For those of you who depend on someone else's thoughts before making a purchase, will you now run out and buy the Galaxy S9?
    I had the Samsung Galaxy S9 and honestly it’s a great device but I just had to return back to apple lol

    I just got my new work issued phone, an S8 on Verizon. I can honestly say I forgot how much crap they load onto those phones. It took me a good 30+ minutes to get it setup, bloat that can be removed, well removed and running. Everyone I work with hates these phones, some have S7's issued last year. Its the 2 year cycle so this is the standard. I can honestly say after a week of use I would not be running back to an S9/S9+ or any Galaxy phone. Maybe consider a Pixel someday, but highly unlikely given how much Apple gear we have, iPad's, Watch, iMac Pro, AppleTV, etc . Just not worth the forced work arounds to get those to work.
