Apple is raising the bar at being very restrictive that's a first for them.

Features that Android had for several years that you claim no one talks about until Apple releases them, the reason no one talks about them is they've been implemented on several devices and everyone just accepts the new features. They don't to try and sell a feature already available on other phones As for Apple Pay, if it's so perfect why can't it be used at non-NFC terminals? And Siri? Perfect? Ha, GA > Siri

Touchscreen and TouchID were great features that Apple brought out. No one at the time had features close to it at the time. Siri, sure it was first but look it at now. It's crap. I know someone and whenever she says "Are you serious?", Siri kicks on. It's the funniest sh*t. Forcetouch is a gimmick. I didn't use it and none of my Apple friends use it. Apple Pay is nothing compared to Samsung Pay. Seriously, you lost all credibility if you are going to say Apple Pay. Apple Pay was late to game and add nothing new to the mobile payment market. Apple every once awhile innovates but I don't see anything new coming from the iPhone 8. Apple is playing the catch up game right now... in fact, they've been doing it for the last couple of years.

Please go for Samsung Note 8...we don't want people that even think that in 50 years maybe they will buy a fake iOS device (I mean Android device).

You say the iPhone will go all out on innovaton and yet ramble on about things that have been standard on Android for years. What are they innovating exactly? Or is this part of you pathetic fanboy paid advertising?
