sometimes i do wonder what people see in apple products... they're overpriced and quality isnt better than other manufacturers premium devices... i've had apple products (the old macbook, 2 units of desktop mac whatever it was/is called and had to bring them to the service center), call it a coincidence, but i was massively disappointed with their build quality and software stability...

To be fair, this is an INCREDIBLY thin, lightweight device. It's only 5.9 mm thick. For comparison, the Tab S4 is 7.1 mm thick, the Pixel Slate is 7 mm thick and the Surface Pro 6 is 8.4 mm thick.

THIS is what customers have to sue Apple for, not for the cheap excuse that they didn't knew the 2018 iPhones have a notch! "That's not a defect" my armpit, that thing shouldn't bend at all, period.
