Just showing Mxy how the "owned/put in place" stuff works, he still have no idea how it really works. He still thinks throwing one liners like "You're a hypocrite" makes him put people in place.

That was stupid, but I wouldn't expect anything more from a hypocritical fanboy.

Hypocritical fanboy? Don't talk about yourself too much here, this isn't a status update section LOL. Yes it is stupid that you don't get it. It is very pitiful that you still reply after getting owned hard :(

I have to agree with you. FPS of S8 is pure garbage.

Really? It the exact one that was on the front. Any fool who would complain about location is stupid.

And you do have a lot of muscle memory ;) Most S8 users that I know have no issue at all with the rear FPS, like you said only takes a few times for muscle memory to kick in.

So conflicting screen sizes. 5.8 vs 5.15 and still not sure about finger print scanner. Even if it's in the screen may not be smooth. But next year model will be flawless. I might do 3 years with current 6s plus. Guess time will tell.

Of course, that is the main strength of ios, you can wait 1 more year without compromising on performance to buy the right model. It is the android which becomes so much unusable and frustrating, sometimes, that you need to change your smartphone even if you don't want.

My Axon Pro with the SD810 running marshmallow is 2 years old a day still runs just as good as current flagship... I still see a lot of people rocking S5 and Note 4. If you take care of your phone it'll last, if not it'll turn to s**t and this goes for IPhone to. Almost everyday I see my coworkers iPhones capping out on them

I myself use android but i am not a blind fanboy. Ios is not perfect and has many cons compared to Android. But you got to give credit where its due. You are only talking about your 2 year old mobile. Many ios user will come forward and say that their 4 yr old iphone 5s never lags. So by pointing to one device you cannot prove anything.

Those saying 5s doesn't lag are lying cunts..i have seen many 6s lagging af on ios 10.

I know that 5s lag. But to say that android does not lag also fall in that c**t category.

Supporting around 120 iPhone 5s users at work, I can tell you... they lag!

"So conflicting screen sizes. 5.8 vs 5.15" Wrong. It's 5.8 inch screen with a "touch bar" on the bottom. So 5.15 inches until you start watching video.

It'll be under the screen, not placed on the back, much to the chagrin of the typical PA Apple hater.

I don't think there are a lot of Apple haters. I do think there are a lot of people who hate Apple worshippers, especially the ones who have such faith in Apple that they think they can speak for them and make promises on their behalf. They're the ones who are always writing checks that Apple can't cash. Or, they are bashing things like wireless charging or water resistance until Apple adopts them. When Apple is (almost) first, they say Apple leads, everyone else copies. When Apple is last, Apple is letting the tech "mature and taking their time to get it right". Until Apple gets it, they didn't need it anyway and it didn't matter til Apple "made it popular". Not many people hate Apple, they just hate you.

There are also a few people here that hate Samsung worshippers and will not hesitate to call them on their bullsh!t false gospel that Samsung is the king of invention and innovation. I am one such disciple, I respect no one and don't care whose feelings I hurt in the quest to try to enlighten you stupid heathens.

If you are calling people out on their bullsh!t by typing on a phone with a large screen, I hope you can take some time to reflect on the irony. After that, you might actually be enlightened.

I was going to post a counter video, but the S8 started lagging again.

Not even remotely funny. In fact, it didn't even make sense.

He's still in incredible pain knowing the S8 is the highest rated phone available. He can't even think straight, let alone come up with what, for him, passes as witty banter.

It wasn't a joke, so it wasn't supposed to be funny. You're not very bright.

If you believe half the articles PA post your and idiot. Who would believe that Apple doesn't already have this figured out??? It's three months away from being announced/realsed, their already making millions of these and getting them ready for September. Just stop with all this, every year it's the same thing, "Apple won't have enough iPhones during launch week" "Apple worried about shortage of screens or batteries or home buttons" PA, just STFU!!
