Why remove 3D Touch? It was something nobody else had, and I actually like it.

I am inclined to go buy an XS now (hope it gets price slashed to be even more appealing), as the new iPhone is a downgrade on some levels.

3D Touch is removed in iOS 13 beta, so it seems it's gone on older devices as well. From what I can see it only works on the camera/torch shortcuts on the lockscreen. All other 3D Touch functionality has been replaced by long touch only.

I was hoping the renders where not true, but they where and damn that new iphone is ugly. Steve Jobs would have fired them all..
Tbh, all phones with multiple cameras look bad. Feels like such an after thought to the enire phone's design.

It's also much of a muchness... They all look similar these days.

Yeah I agree most phones are beginning to all look the same

But in terms of the cameras I don't care how they look but rather how they work

woefully underwhelmed by the new iphone. literally almost nothing new there for the R30,000 price tag we will have in SA for the PRO

Note 9, S10+, Iphone X, XS MAX Oneplus 7 pro still best phones to my mind. And can be had for far less than that expensive thing.

This years event was also by far the worst and most rushed one I have ever seen, looks like apple are also feeling financial pressure somehow

Apple really worked hard how to make something worse than the notch. And credit to their R&D, they have succeeded.

Don't agree with that. The Note 10's rear design is neat enough.

As a huge Apple fan I sadly have to agree, the iPhone 11's rear looks very disgusting. It's the ugliest iPhone ever made for sure.

Some people call it to the stovetop.

This would be my budget choice: https://www.gearbest.com/cell-phones/pp_009591521059.html?wid=1349303
$469 for the normal OP7 and the Pro could be the slightly more expensive premium option.

Oneplus babeh! ANDROID POWA!
7t coming soon :D so further price drops hopefully
