iPhone 12

On a bit of a side note, I just started watching NEXT on Fox. Very interesting premise that doesn’t look far fetched to me. A variant on the whole Skynet/Terminator storyline.
 
I won't be buying....but are these things not often best left a little after launch? My friend has had to return the past 4 iphones bought at launch. Apple are good for returning stuff but with any new tech I'd prefer to see it in the wild for a while first.
 
I just don't get the attraction of these phones. The only reason that I have an iPhone is because it was a hand-me-down from my wife who used to get a new one every other year for work. I think that the one I have is a 6s. It's more than adequate for me.

It's a more powerful computer than anything you could buy even 5 years ago, and it fits in your pocket.
That may not be an interesting use case for you, for many of us it makes our jobs and lives possible.

Plus, it's fun and enjoyable to use. And you're not one of those people who like to crap on things other people enjoy , are you? ;)

yeah, they are arguably the pinnacle of electronics in 2020. Something so powerful and small. A smartphone (maybe not an iPhone) is first and only computing device for so many people around the world. I still remember having a Palm PDA that needed to be tethered to PC to download stuff and be more useful, a memory stick mp3 player, camera, GPS, and laptop. All separate devices which have been more usefully combined into one. If only a large screen would fit into my pocket.
 
Just purchased a new Samsung phone with a 5.7" HD screen, and Android 10 for $29. USB C charger and cable included. Works wonderful. :lol: 😉
