The only reason I made this thread is because I wanted to know if there was an actual difference between the 8 and the x. Yeah the 7 is much cheaper but in the long run which will last me longer? Obviously the 8 will, also if you kept reading down you'd know I said that I don't care about a screen. $300 is a lot for a screen and thats the only difference, a screen. Why do i\I use iPhone you may ask? Its because in school we use macs, I own a mac, my friends and family have iPhones. The only time I use a PC is when i am making massive, multi part CAD 3D vehicles. What ever brand of smartphone use satellite and 3G will be the victor in the industry, especially if the cost for satellite calling and texting decline in the coming years. Your next phone has already been planned out, I sit in class and don't make the new fighter drone for next year but the drone in 20 years that is fully autonomous. Apple adds on feature a year due to the call of duty curse, where there has to be something new every year. Is going cheap always good though? Would you go cheap in brakes for your bike? Cheap insurance? I know that wouldn't skimp on certain things.
@joshuad11 you fell for the premium look and longevity of a phone, advertising is only part of it.
