Irish prices are a joke. €1180/$1400 for the base X.

Unless the US equivalent of VAT is around 40% that's a pure piss take.

A grand, then. Bit pricey. Looks nice though.

I called off his players' names as they came marching up the steps behind him....All nice guys. They'll finish last. Nice guys. Finish last.

Prices on these things are now ridiculous but I'm sure Apple must know what they are doing and what they can get away with. Thing is it's easy to say it's a grand for a phone but when you look at the processing power of these things now it's crazy. I think during that augmented reality game presentation the game designer said the game was running in native 4K HDR with a locked 60FPS. It only seems like a few years back I had a Sharp clamshell that was cutting edge because it had a 1MP camera and MP3 ringtones.

The Verge are historically one of Apple's biggest fans, amongst the big tech sites.

Today, we saw Apple evangelism on a grand scale. The company has always been defined in part by onanism and self-congratulation, but has managed a certain degree of self-awareness. This year, it jumped the shark

Wuh-oh.

Yeah but then you get this

The thing that a lot of people want to talk about with the iPhone X is its $999 starting price, but when you have the phone in your hand, it feels... worth it.

Historically iPhones always crush the competition in benchmarks (which is cool) but I can't get over that price. You could build a monster gaming pc with that dough.

Did they mention how Apple Pay will work without touch ID? Seems a bit awkward to have to point your face at the phone at the checkout?

Got it in one. You have to look at your phone, then press it to the pay pad. Which is obviously much easier then using your thumb. Obviously.

Maybe it'll work fine in practice, but to my mind that will look like quite a strange action.

There's always the option of using your Apple watch...

True, but I imagine plenty of people don't wear their watch all the time - I just wear mine at work, for example.

Oh well, time will tell.

Why do the bezels on the X look so big? They look bigger than the ones on the 7.

I used to love the James Bond feeling that using your Apple Watch for Apple Pay gives me but have recently found this somewhat dissipated by that weird pause moment you have to endure when the cashier realises you are paying by Apple Pay and then has to press another button to bring up the contactless pay screen. It's all rather awkward and destroys the mystique. :)

Anyone have full specs of the iPhone x. Like cpu, ram, etc. Is this also 4K 60fps video?

It's £999 for 64gb and £1149 for 256gb.
