While the new iPhone XS looks good I've read an increasing number of issues are arising. Here's another article.

Vanity Gadgets...or 'Vadgets', if you will. :D

Maybe. The screens on the flagship phones are brilliant. The operation is smooth, faultless and the camera is as good as a £150 snapper from Canon.

My £150 Moto G5 seems to take decent photos.
That pic I took from the top of Ben A'an earlier in the year has had 110,000 views on Google Maps already.

Something that does surprise me is the difference that wearing my reading glasses to use my phone makes.
So....many hundreds of £££'s for a new vadget phone, or put my readers on when using my existing phone for free?


It also galls me that Apple don't recognise currency rates (many other platforms do it as well).
£1000 in their eyes is the same as $1000......so they're treating people like the mugs they probably are if they're willing to overlook that kind of thing.
(£1000 is about $1300)

Aye, it's very poor customer service.

That iFixit site is very good.

I posted that because it was a CBS investigation, not some website I'd never heard of. I have watched a number of that guy's videos. Some of the workmanship in iPhones out of the factory is poor, some of the repairs they do are downright shoddy. Of course he only gets those that fail but even so, it's not something Apple can be proud of since that's what they do advertise as being proud of.
