Ain’t far behind you on the age+eyes front
Staggers back and goes to lie down in a darkened room. I think I'll stick to buying a phone outright and pay my £5.00 per month SIM only.
Seriously these prices are more than my mortgage used to cost.
I forgot about the pre-order and wanted one of these for release day. Any likelyhood of me being able to walk in the shop and buy one without a pre-order?
Agreed, more than enough smartphone for 99% of consumers.
well sorted my xs max 256GB with O2 business. So now it's time to wait. I skipped my usual 2 year upgrade cycle last year and my 6s although still perfectly fine for what I use seems to have the battery life of a wheezing old man at times.
Question, does all the banking apps support Face ID?
I can only confirm the ones I've used.
Natwest, Monzo and Starling all use FaceID however Barclays Barclaycard requires a 5 digit pin.
Ah I never even thought about unlocking it! I was going to get the charging pad not stand but you've changed my mind now, great point!
First Direct, HSBC Business, Natwest, Nationwide and Tesco do. Barclaycard still needs a 5 digit PIN.
Any app that supports Touch ID automatically supports Face ID.
In which case barclays will too as their standard banking app uses touchID. For some reason I think I had to enable it in the app settings recently while it was auto-enabled or at least asked me if I wanted to use it before.
Yeah the Barclays Bank app does, the Barclaycard app is still stuck without any form of biometric login.
Yes. There is absolutely no way I could move from 2880 x 1440 on my 2XL to 1920 x 1080 - that's a huge downgrade.
A plus size phone is no substitute for a ipad (I've got both).
Yeah a phablet style phone is nice when out and about without carying my iPad Pro 10.5 but it will be by no means be a replacement
That's not the point. The point is that the dpi on the XS Max is almost identical to the Pixel 2, meaning how they look to you will be the same.
The 2 XL has a 538 dpi so even moving to the XS Max would be a big downgrade.
You can’t see much difference beyond about 350 or so isn’t it?
How close are you guys holding the phone to your faces? It's just a stat contest now. I moved from Pixel 2XL to 8 Plus to X and have not noticed any differences in everyday use at all
Dear god those prices on contracts that’s just daylight ******* robbery tbh.
Right well my 6s battery barely lasts a few hrs let alone a day so either I get a replacement battery or get the new iPhone xs. No chance in hell am I going for a contract even with Vodafone. Only question is to go the Apple upgrade plan which is basically the phone over x amount of months with no interest so you only pay what the phone actually costs unlike networks doing daylight robbery.
Been on the Apple website but can’t see the option to buy it on the Apple upgrade program. I suppose you will have to wait till they actually got stock in stores to sell them on the upgrade plan?? Which judging by past events, could be a few weeks or mths at best.
I can notice the difference and found it to be quite large when I compared my 2XL to my X before I returned it. Before you say it I wasn't holding it close to my face either! My explanation is no one is the same, some people do have better vision than others.
