    What do people think of the shiny new iPhone that was announced yesterday (during my club training where are Apples priorities honestly)?

    Do people think they massive price tag is ridiculous? do people think its fair?

    Are there any features you think are really cool or interesting? is it all a bit magic beans?

    £1000 can buy me decent goalie kit or a decent amount of Haribo. There's no way I'd pay that for a phone until they invent teleportation. I like the idea of face recognition as long as it works properly (did you see the video of the launch? Poor fella up there all by himself!), everything else is magic beans.

    Facial recognition has been a thing for years. £1000 for a phone is even more extortionate than Apple's usual offerings.

    First time on a phone though?
    It's not been fantastic at consumer level (I'm thinking mid-priced laptops).

    Still not paying that much for a phone though!

    Outrageous price for an overrated device. Very concerned about the privacy issues with the facial recognition, despite all the promises that it's safe.

    Pay a lot more and still get less than the best android phones? No thanks.

    It was a thing on my Nexus 10 (a tablet) which I got around 4 years ago so I assume that it's been on phones as well.

    I think face recognition was tried several years ago but didn't work too well (it was easily fooled by pictures or masks from what I heard around that time), I know its one of the key features advertised on the Samsung 8 phones. I think the wireless charging is a nice add by apple (finally), and i do think the general aesthetic is nice but not £1000 nice. That is more then someone in a full-time, minimum wage job earns (after tax) per month. With that kind of money you could start a small hockey business.....

    I am very tempted to jump to the Google Pixel or just upgrade to the iPhone 7.

    So are people interested in the Pixel 2 or iPhone 8?

    whats did you do to it?
    I had a 5 from launch for 2 years and my mum is still using it now, I did get the battery replaced as part of a recall at about 18 months

    I think the best way to decide if the new iphone is any good or not would be to put one in your hockey boxes @BossFHockey.........

    I reckon that would boost sales. If I had the money I'd do it. The offer of a free stick for someone wasn't enough maybe an iPhone x would do it

    I'd had it for a week when the screen came a bit off at the top right, it was barely anything so I left it, a month later I went to get it off the charger and the screen cracked and fell off in some places. Scared me half to death!

    The screen was coming off and you didn't take it back? I know people who take it back because of 1 dead pixel

    It was hardly coming off, I could still use my phone normally so I wasn't bothered to go get it fixed, just call me lazy :p

    Finger print readers are fine, so are bezels. Why everyone is in a frantic rush to only have screen on the front is beyond me, my Oneplus 3T will last me a good few years years yet and I don't have to let it scan my face to unlock it either. This is just another case of apple using old technologies passing them off as new then sticking the apple tax on top.

    No that was the Note 7!

    I was holding out for a Note 8 but my Note 4 died a few months back after nearly 3 years!)
