I miss my Xperia. The camera was absolutely awesome. I have pictures I took on the beach in the middle of the night with no flash, and they look like daytime shots. I'm not good with having a sheet of glass in my pocket, though, so I'm no longer allowed to have expensive phones. The wife put her foot down. What can I do?

 

The traditional response is -- Yes dear.

After joining a free local Apple support group (at least I seek help when I need it) ...and following several postings

about the Apple 8  - I think I am going to wait till after the first of the year to purchase one.  It seems there are a few

bugs to work out (for sure on the X but I had decided against one of those - I just don't use it enough to justify it. 

But even the 8 seems to have maybe been rushed out to market.

Everything is rushed out to market.  The days when all the bugs are ironed out, before being rushed to market are all gone.  Now, we all buy the product for the privilege  of being beta testers.  

 

Things change.

To be straight to the point:

Apple Sucks, Microsoft Sucks, Android Sucks (as does everything Google owned) - Linux is OK, depending upon version. I particularly like cali.

How much time did that cost you (including "learning" how to do that)...?

I made the decision to buy an Apple 8 instead of the X (thanks to all for assisting with that decision) .....I have no idea if there will be any sale before, during or after the holidays so I am holding off on that purchase just in case I can catch a break. 

 

However, having said that - if I had not already made the decision to not buy a X the current crop of problems would be off putting .   The thing I find amazing is that in spite of a significant bit of not-quite-finished-with-this tweaking by Apple the darn thing is sold out and backordered.   Eh.....THAT I do not get.  I get wanting the newest thing but maybe at that price its best to let them finish working the bugs out of it before plunking down the money - maybe. 

 

Now, I was talking to some long time tech-heads (been at it since the late 60's) and they tell me Apple pretty much is now designing things to implode (become not financially fixable) in a less than four year time span.  If you buy Apple - you better plan on replacing what ever you buy in the four year window...the batteries won't last - or they won't be worth fixing if you try to send them back in......anyone else hearing that?

 

ALSO - if you DO send something in for a battery change - you do NOT get your original item back. They give you a "exact replacement"....send yours to the home office to be refurbished and old but YOU DO NOT retain the equipment.   You go home with a replacement item...anyone know about that?
