    I’m surprised nobody has created a tread about apple’s new phone yet. What do you guys think about the new iPhones especially iPhone X?

    Time to replace my iPhone 6. Can't wait for the release here in the PH.

    I'm worried about the price as well. I think I'll wait for a model unit to play around with before upgrading from my 6+

    Joining the chorus of anxiety over the price tag. :cry:

    I also noticed that the AirPower mat will become available only in 2018.

    It's somewhat fortunate that we won't be the guinea pigs for this expensive phone. I'd rather Apple works most of the kinks out before the November 3 ship date and then the rest of the kinks out when it reaches the 1st and 2nd tier countries. But personally, I saw nothing that really screamed "come and throw your money at me". Time (and reviews) will tell.

    I want it. The only question now is when will it be officially available here.

    The price is a bit steep. I really depends how much will it be priced with contract. Was a bit disappointed that there's a delay on the release. Traditionally iPhone release dates have almost always been September. The iPhone X preorder starts October 25 and will be released first week of November. I don't count the iPhone 8 as a new iPhone because it's nearly identical to the iPhone 7 which was nearly identical to the iPhone 6s which was nearly identical to the iPhone 6.

    Will Face ID work even with your eyes closed? Asking for a friend. He is concerned that his wife can unlock his phone while he's sleeping.

    Am I the only one here thinking about getting the iPhone 8 instead? It doesn't have a new design but the $699 price tag is now justified. 64gb, new 12mp cam with 4k/60fps, 1080/240fps, a11 chip & ip68.

    Pricing in the Apple Singapore website. Take note that this is in SGD not USD. :

    Geez. The 256GB variant is almost as expensive as the entry level MacBook Pro.

    it will probably hit our shores by December which is a long ways to go but a perfect timing to the PhilMug Christmas Party - which could potentially led to a Christmas Party becoming the release point for APR and Globe. hehehe!

    Use the iPhone X to declutter your life. I bet you have enough junk that, if sold, could pay for an X. I do.

    Or sell a body part. Before Apple ships, you can de-liver. ;)

    My guess is it will be available in around mid-January, given the later release date and supply issues, and it'll cost 56,990 pesos. Just my guess. :)

    Nope, the user will have to be looking at the phone to unlock it. The Verge has a demo of this in their hands-on video.

    I think I'll be getting one.. When my plan renews ..next year!
    Hahaha.. At that price I will only afford or be willing to pay for a subsidized version. But I am still sure to get one. I like the size and the look so far. Can't wait to see regular user hands-on reviews. Paging Sir Butch! Hahahaha..

    I guess you cannot unlock your phone in your room lights off without using a passcode. Unlike with touch id.
