    OLED screens are in the cheaper phones on the market and have been for years it one of the reasons I didn’t get the iPhone X it’s over priced with a cheaper OLED screen in it. If Apple make a TFT 1990 screen in 2018 there will in a market of cheaper phones with OLED screens so Apple have no idea what they are doing maybe if only they could listen to an iPod to get back on track

    1 in a million means there are potentially over 7000 people on earth who can unlock your phone with their face. Of course family would be more likely.

    I am a blind iPhone X user and I love it, but I don’t like the fact that the Bluetooth indicator is not on the status bar anymore.

    Wow is this a joke? Never trust a company who claims to be the best, it shows how desperate they are. Build quality innovate and shut up. iPhone x is not even close to a great smartphone.

    im sure someone has already said this, but Nacho is actually free, though you do have to pay to remove the watermark, while "Notch Remover" costs a dollar, with no upcharge in the app. However, I personally love the notch. I've liked it since I saw it in the leaks and said to myself "they'd better not cover that up" lol. anyway, just my two cents.

    For me OLED on Samsung phone's looks dimmer than my iPhone LCD.  I haven't seen one in person but the X's looking cartoonish or crayon colorist.  The colors look too plastic like on a toy phone and not as authentic, in my humble opinion. And Brian yeah I'd dab that coffee warming mug!  Praying for you and Beech!  Thanks for another episode this week!  I was wondering if y'all could go over the interview with Johny Ives more, and perhaps investigate more into the possible of stylus for the iPhone in the future possibility.  For me the lack of the home even virtual home button is the biggest reason to not get the X.  If they had that I might go for it.  For me that is deal breaker, even more than the notch.  I might get over the notch if they at least had a virtual home button or 3D Touch home button.

    I know this is an apple byte show but I though it might be cool to do a comparison to the top competitors in the phone world.  Like the LG V30, I don't know maybe a smash off or something?  I'm really leaning towards that phone over the iPhone this year.  Either that or an SE.  Any speculation on a new SE?

    The X is having more issue than the 8.  I recommend the 8 plus.  Scott Stein says there is better landscape feature on the 8 plus!

    Apple has said that the “undeveloped facial features” in those under the age of 13 could cause issues with Face ID

    Because of all the issues with the X.  I think the 8 plus is the best choice either that or the 7.

    I think they should have an iPhone iPad Pro upgrade program.  Similar to the iPhone upgrade program.  Or even an Apple Watch upgrade program.  Why not the whole suite of products.  MacBook Pro who knows?

    Stop picking on lower tech. The way you speak Bryan you make it sound as if the LCD screen is inferior when in fact it isn't. OLED has its merits but it is far from perfect.

    I think the Vietnamese company faked tricking Face ID. This is why…. first it’s 2017 u have the Technology to reproduce 3-D faces and buy a iPhone 10.. but u are Recording a important event on the worlds shittiest camera!!!! Also u never see the phone screen show the unlocked icon!!!! It says locked then they Just swipe up. They did it publicity & recognition. It’s like faking a big foot sighting. Once the stories out there it’s deemed truth by most people cause they just see the headline or word of mouth. Because it’s more exciting & a bigger story saying somebody cracked the facial recognition on the iPhone 10 then saying somebody failed.. cause u are supposed to fail right 1 in a million chance.. that won’t be news worthy but have a tag line that says it was tricked & everyone is interested & telling others. If that company wants to convince me put out a better video & do it slower with press there. But they don’t care to convince me or any1 else weather is was real or faked it don’t matter cause it was already deemed true……👎

    I still have my Samsung Galaxy Note Edge which is 3 years old and still going with no burn in or image retention problems. Your OLED should be ok. The green line is just a defective screen. I had a purple line on my Note Edge after a few weeks and they just changed the screen. Lesson here is just to take it back and they should change it.

    I don't know if it's me but Brian, your voice seems out of sync with the video. Is anyone else experiencing this.
