    But first i want to ask you, is it stronger than a paper in water ? Do it have more memory than a golden fish ( 2 seconds ) ? Is gold cheaper than a iphone ?
    Blah.. an outdated apple… Buy android, if your smart

    I actually thought my playlist was playing. I have the same song from the beginning on the video.
    If you want to go check out some good chill tunes then go on Spotify and search benjamin.clowes

    Subjective: you want that grand Full HD display, pay that $250 extra and get one. Period.
    Most of us are find with LCDs and that less screen resolution, especially when you have a desktop/laptop for full video consumption.

    It’s cheaper, it’s got a better battery, I love family photos, I enjoy my social media for cool stuff, games, and memes. With that extra 250, I can spend it on future accessories that’ll be available (using an IPhone 6s since the 7 came out) it’s time for an upgrade, but not super pricy. Just enough that an 19 year old can afford

    Had the XR at launch. Exchanged it for XS max. Then got sick of Iphone. Went to pixel 3. Now 5 months later. Back at XR and so happy. I pay cash for my phones so it being cheaper means a lot to me. And the sacrifices just aren’t worth mentioning.
