    In not talking solely about SOC benchmarks, or hell, benchmarks at all. Look at the context of my post. I'm talking about screen tech, pixel density, screen to bezel ratio, wireless charging, etc. THAT sort of hardware parity.

    Yeah, i really want to get the iPhone X, but the lack of a jailbreak ( at least until 3-4 months after release, and im being optimistic) , is whats got me on the sidelines for now. I really like the Note 8 as well, but the locked bootloader is a load of BS. The new pixels will be announced soon, but they just might be too simple for my taste. Time will tell i guess.

    Will iphone X ditch selfie flash and use real front camera with flash?
    At last, control center can be accessed by swiping down on iphone. I thought it was a retarded feature on iphone that swiping upwards for control center. Absolutely hated the current control center in iOS 10.3.x. I gave it to my mom.
    They could have opted for OLED screens earlier, I think Apple will drop Light Theme on iph X and switch to Dark mode.

    Sounds like you need a Clevo like iPhone with Prema firmware to OC CPU and GPU on water cooling with custom OS like Silent Phone or even @Phoenix Super Tweaked iOS or @Mr. Fox no non-sense iOS optimised for OC'ing the hell out of A11 CPU to break WR.
    Wait few months for user reviews and buy Note 8 or iphone 8 or weapon/iphone X.

    The lack of a fingerprint reader might be a dealbreaker for me even if I wanted an iPhone. There area lot of situations where I want to unlock my phone and it's nor pointed toward my face for the face unlock to work (pulling out of a pocket, resting on a desk).

    Apple Wants Your Money! The Company Goes Crazy with Price Jumps Across the Board
    http://wccftech.com/apple-going-crazy-pricing-2017/

    "Apple is apparently going all out this year – not as much in terms of new features as it is with the price hikes. After raising the prices of its iPhones, we reported that the iPads too will now be sold for an extra $50.

    But, that is not all. The Cupertino tech giant is also increasing its repair and replacement prices for its iPhones, making things even more expensive.

    The company has not only raised AppleCare+ prices for its newly released iPhone X and the iPhone Plus models, it has also changed its service repair charges."

    Milk them suckers Apple :)
