    iPhone 7 announcement is almost as boring as the Galaxy S7 announcement.

    Sadly I fear we're at the end of an era where phones are actually exciting. Last cool new phone feature I can think of was motorola's voice assistant. When you could on demand pull up google searches.

    Also Apple is placing a massive gamble in ditching the 3.5mm audio jack. It's the standard and has been around for decades.

    Here's a scenario I can see happening that would be a huge failure for the iphone, you have a car with no bluetooth but an aux. How do you charge your phone and listen to music at the same time? It is IMO an unnecessary choice.

    Only intriguing feature I see is the dual cameras and see if they really work well together. I like the potential but the question is will the payoff be worth it? Or would the money spent on that have been better spent on something different?

    Device will sell millions, and I'm glad they ditched the 16GB model. Honestly anything less than 32 is a waste and shouldn't exist in a flagship phone and I'm glad apple is finally on board with that.

    While the black 7+ looks cool, there are not enough new features to temp me to work on.

    And honestly Apple and Samsung need to test their products more carefully. Either way it shows why I almost never buy something the minute it's released.

    Apple left all the new features for thier 10th anniversary phone next year.

    Will they finally rebrand? I phone # then #S cycle is old. One area where I think Motorola did it right was keeping the name of the X. Not calling it the new X or X2, or anything like that. To me I'd much rather just call it the iPhone and just keep it going.

    Well Samsung is ****ed. Telling consumers to turn off their note 7s now. Nothing else about replacement or anything. Just turn them off. They're gonna get the shot sued out of them. Replacement notes are catching on fire. How did this get past testing?

    They haven't announced a replacement because they are permanently halting production. Jesus. Heads are rolling in Seoul.

    Dodged a major bullet with this one. Have owned every iteration of the Note ever produced, but opted to swap my Note 5 for an S7 Edge in May and realized how much I missed the smaller form factor. Once the Note 7 came out, found myself immediately getting swooned over by the glowing reviews and was probably a few days from pulling the trigger.

    Now I guess I'll hang onto the Edge. The iPhone 7 doesn't appeal to me much beyond aesthetic and the Pixel is meh.

    We may see a quarter where one phone maker gets 100% of the profit in the phone industry. That's huge.

    Though I have the NExus 6P and love it. You can still buy it from 3rd party sources. It's a great phone overall. I'm considering getting the Pixel to get a smaller form phone, but I'm not sold one way or the other yet.

    I've been Note all the way.

    Kind of sad Blackberry got out of the hardware business. A phone like the Note should have been something they should have made years ago.

    Wish Blackberry would have made a 2016 Blackberry Priv.

    Blackberry should have ditched the consumer hardware and moved into corporate/government only hardware and software 4 years ago. Android (to them) came out of left field and immediately wrecked their sharehold in the consumer game, which honestly their product was never intended to play in.

    Priv was just another example of how blackberry doesn't get it. It came out around the same time as the droid 2 turbo and the LG V10, Compare them all. It's tied with the v10 for heaviest, it's th ethickest, offers no ruggedized features like the other 2, it had a worse processor than the droid 2 turbo and same as v10, less ram than both. THey basically bet on building an inferior phone for the same price as superior models, and then hoping the full keyboard would sell people. The consumer reviews on the 3 products will tell you why that didn't work out. ANd it's probably because the Keyboard looks about as ****ty as the motorola Q's.

    And for my money, nothing beats stock android. I know I'm losing a few things going Nexus (now Pixel) or going near stock like Motorola that Samsung, LG, etc. offer. But to me those offerings aren't worth the virtual guarantee of getting my software updates almost immediately and the full control of my device.

    Right now only the Pixels, v20, and Xperia XZ intrigue me for new phones.
