There have been 8 or 9 reports of swelling WORLDWIDE out of the millions and millions of iphone 8's out there. Only 1 was in the US. Even if there are only just 1 million iphone 8's out there, which is a fraction of the actual sales that Apple does not publish, that's a 0.0008% occurrence. Thats a statistical insignificance.
There are lies.
There are damn lies.
Then there are statistics.

Well as always, the boys at the apple store do not know anything about the release, the phone, configurations etc etc... the disconnect between corporate and retail at apple is huge... i don't know if purposely or whatever other reason this exists

They can't say that much about a the X until it is actually out. They are trying to avoid making a claim that is untrue, not because of lack of knowledge, but because of last minute changes that corporate might make from now until the X is actually released.

Do you think corporate would make a change in the last week lol? They can't answer a single question on the launch, availability etc... Also, why doesn't the actual fucking store get the phones on display a week early so that people can see what they are actually buying? They literally get the phone on NOV 3 when its' available to order OCT 27.

First world problems much? Sorry Apple is such an inconvenience to you.

Here is an idea, wait for them to stock it, go check it out and order it late.

Buddy, you don't HAVE to order it the first day. If you want to get your hands on it first, WAIT.

Can you even imagine the chaos inside all Apples stores if they did brought a few to each store?

Also put yourself in Apples shoes. Why would you show the device in stores and kill the hype?

Then why is it different with the phone? It's a phone, it's a known commodity you don't need to hold it and there's likely nothing you'd learn in the store that would sway you one way or the other. If you have to have it first, you'll have to deal with some shenanigans.

I'd get it because it's going to be a powerful phone with an interesting design and new features. Phenomenal A11 chip, new design, very interesting facial recognition technology, dual optical image stabilization, one of the best cameras in a smartphone, and of course, iOS. I believe Apple is embracing the "notch" as a branding move. All phones look the same these days. However, you'll know it's an iPhone with the notch. Haters hate, but Apple could easily disguise the notch with software to make the top look like a black bezel. They don't want to.

I'm coming back to iOS after 3 years fighting through Android and can't wait.

If you just love TouchID, get the iPhone 8. I personally think we are going to laugh at fingerprint technology in the next few years. This facial recognition is only going to get more advanced, is already more secure, and definitely is the future.

The iPhone 8 and the iPhone X have the same processors, largely the same camera (besides dual optical image stabilization in the X), wireless charging, and similar overall performance. You're getting the X for the design, OLED screen, smaller form factor than the iPhone 8 plus yet largest screen, and the facial recognition tech. Plus, you'll be 10X cooler with the X.
i've never seen such rabid fanboyism.

You are literally one of the worst type of people/

"It's more powerful"
Yeah dude, that candy crush app starts all of .002 seconds quicker.

"new design"
It's a disposable phone that looks like another disposable phone.

"Interesting tech"
FACIAL RECOGNITION?! NO WAI!! It's almost like the stuff that has been out since forever.

I got to play around with a iPhone X last week. A friend of mine is an apple corporate employee. Since the phone is now announced, they can use it in public now. It is rather cool!

The lack of a home button is different but once you get used to swiping up to go home, you wonder why you need a home button at all. The size is good as well. Slightly longer than the iPhone 6/7 but nothing as large as the Plus phones. Side by side, it makes the older iphones look primitive.

He said production is limited by component shortages - mostly due to the facial recognition system. No one else uses it on any phone so the suppliers can't ramp up production fast enough. They are anticipating wait times until next year.

I'm waiting until they come out with a larger version. Also, my thumbs hurt bad enough from trying to touch the edges of the screen in landscape mode on my current 7+. Getting rid of the buffer area on each side means I'll have to crunch up my thumbs even more. It's literally painful.


PS, "until next year" is only about 10 weeks, which is not that crazy for a new iphone.

I can see that being an issue in landscape.. I don't use landscape for typing. I usually use 1 finger in portrait mode. It's not very fast but I guess I'm just used to it.
