hypnotictortoise: So, a top director shoots a feature length film on iPhone, and the resident hacks/experts have plenty to say...

I think most of you need to take a good hard look at yourselves.

@hypnotictortise, Yep, the paranoid conspiracy theorist Trolls are out in force.

petr marek: Which "game" is it going to change?
I wonder if the producer of this movie is Apple...

He did say it was a "gamechanger to ME" not anyone else.

ebarak71: I just saw the trailer on my iPhone. What if the whole movie would come out to be viewed only on iPhone. Now that's a gamechanger...

He did say it was a "gamechanger to ME" not to anyone else or even the industry.

Dédéjr: Well I'm sorry to say but this film trailer is utter rubbish in quality. Fanboy's are all over this,some have to be paid...and some well anybody can claim to work in the film industry...nope fail

Actually, I think there are far, far more comments by Trolls.

Vallkar: Would it be a gamechanger if it was shot with Samsung S8?

Yes.

Reactive: Perhaps Soderbergh's next film should be about the downfall of a once respected movie director, who sells his soul to a massive corporate entity, and spends the rest of his life making promotional trash to please the corporation, until he eventually dies of shame.

... and that career path would still be better than yours.

Mariano Pacifico: iPhone X is over-hyped, over-priced and over-rated. Apple is rumored to halve production due to low sales to maintain the over-pricing. Apple stock price tanked at 5%. But if you look at Apple Stock Chart it goes up ... goes down ... up again and down again ... like camel's back.

Who'd buy iPhone X if they have working 6,7&8? It is like why buy G1xMiii when they have G7xMii working like G1xMiii and no body can know the difference.

Why buy or upgrade to Nikon D850 and collateral lenses when they have working Canons and older Nikons?

That is why dSLRs sales is grabbing at straws so is Apple iPhone X.

I will buy this behemoth when the price drops because this phone is waterproof. I like to videochat with Mom while underwater.

I NOT going to spend $1000 on a phone, any phone. Though, PlusNet is doing a good deal at the mo.

mattz10: the point is that pixel 2 xl is better than this

So what if the Pixel 2 or whatever is better. I wouldn't buy a phone because of the camera. I doubt very much if anyone would notice the rather small difference between iPhone X and Pixel 2. Perhaps pixel peeping idiots but nobody else cares.

tbcass: What a waste of time this review was because this grossly overpriced phone failed miserably in the marketplace causing Apple to discontinue it.

at least the batteries don't explode!

"iPhone X is over-hyped, over-priced and over-rated."

What product isn't?

and if it isn't it should be.

That is the sole job of the marketing dept.

Do you feel the same way about, say, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Rolex?

bardick: How about a 600 volt cable around the tree trunk, that should deter these vandals.

That's a shocking idea! But it gets my volt.

Are people who threaten this tree whilst taking their Instagram selfies called narcissistic Wanaka's?

Edgar_in_Indy: Camera phones keep inching closer to real cameras! Now that they've simulated bokeh, maybe they can start working on simulating skin textures.

And simulating good photographers.

LKFX_House: everyone is a picture-taker NOT a photographer, real life comparison should be, in a low light venue, tungsten light all over the place, iphone using it's built-in flash, canon (maybe a fuji or something better instead) with same lens and internal flash, or even trying to overpower sun with iphone (this canon camera is not best representation of asp-c camera) :D

Ok, fair point. But, if you don’t shoot in low light then having a phone or camera that is crap in low light isn’t really relevant. I know what you mean though and I tend to agree. My phone is no way near as good as my camera.

That is a proper "camera shooting" :) canon, you must do better than those.

@jnd, I expose myself.

Tristan Jones: For $6500 I could build a system that would eat that Apple alive.
I wouldn't go IAO for that price, asking for trouble imo.

It may look ooh-shiney but IDC about looks in that sense. My desktop monitors are attractive.

That spec machine should be inside a case where it can be properly cooled.
Think of those dumb laptops that throttle a CPU when they get a bit hot?
They can't run full speed for long, duuuh, because they can't cool the cpu sufficiently in that tight space!
I'm sure apple are using hybrid heat pipes for sure, but still;

But all that aside, lets not forget this.
Apple don't make this. They put intel CPUs, samsung (or other) ssds, memory, and GPU's into a motherboard of their design. And thats it. All that performance comes from the high quality parts used.

So essentially, any monkey can make a fast machine, just give it your credit card.

For balance, it *IS* a nice machine, yea I wouldn't say no if offered it for free, but not my cup'o'tea.

"For $6500 I could build a system that would eat that Apple alive"

£ for £ PCs are faster and more economical, sure. I and many other Mac users use Macs because we prefer using Macs. Nothing else really matters.

Apple had to go over to Intel chips mainly because IBM were not developing the PowerPC chips to the speeds and energy requirements that Apple required. Foregone conclusion.

In reply to:

Jylppy: Macs are pretty, but the author of the article is either ignorant or willfully biased. Spec the PC as the iMac Pro was spec’ed and the differences are unnoticeable. PC will give a buyer better value for the same performance , especially over the product lifetime, but PCs don’t match the design of the Macs. For me rhe extensibility of the PC wins the comparison, for someone else the design, OS or brand of Apple is the deciding factor.

AIOs look great except when complemented with all peripherals you buy over the lifetime of the computer. I also prefer ability to do HW monitor calibration which iMacs still don’t support. And the lifetime of a good monitor is far longer than that of a computer so bundling all in one doesn’t make sense economically. But it looks pretty. I got an iMac as a gift few years ago and returned it to the shop since didn’t want it over a PC.

You are right on all counts. I use a Mac simply because I prefer using Macs.
