How do you know it doesn't have the same feel? Have you used a high end Android phone recently?
Not recently but I had the Galaxy S7 for a work phone at one point in time. I’m not sure where that falls in the category of high end but I thought it was one of their flagship phones.

Any recommendations?
I really don’t like the interface of android phones though. It just feels cheap to me.

I got xs max, but would have kept my 7 if I could have taken it from t-mobile to verizon.

Its all preference so if the Android interface isn't for you then you may never change. The one thing I'll give android tho is the interface can be changed to whatever you want.

I hate the ios interface with a passion, but I'm pretty much stuck with it. It's been the same boring a.ss icon grid for over a decade.

For high end Android phones I'd say:

Note 9
Galaxy S9
Pixel 3XL
OnePlus 6T
G7

There are way more but these are all solid and easy to find. Some of the other good phones (Mate 20 Pro, P20, XZ3) are hard to find.

5G feels like a fad.

There still quite some time before it becomes truly mainstream and widely adopted, definitely not something that has any bearing on a phone purchase for me.

XR is meh, not surprised it’s flopping. Had it been £100 cheaper and it likely would’ve been flying off the shelf.

XS is cool, but 128GB should have been base storage especially for a £1000 phone. No phones worth £1000 and the XS definitely isn’t.

I’d like one but I’m not paying RRP for it, If I get one I got one discounted, but at this rate looks like I’m sticking to my 7 until next September.

Apple definitely lost the plot with pricing, whilst sales look to be down, there are still many buying them.

Have YOU done any research? Instagram and YouTube videos don't count. I mean actual scientific research.

Apple needs to slow the fcuk down! Plain and simple. For some reason Apple feels it needs to compete with other cellular manufacturers but it doesn't. Samsung has their loyalist. LG has theirs and Apple has theirs. These companies are going to do things the others can’t and won’t. Put time into developing your devices, make them stand out, give the consumers something that they can tout as an industry first and not a polished up way of doing things. iMessage is indeed a good thing and makes texting easy. The simplistic handling of their devices makes them attractive and not to mention their phones are a status symbol. But Apple needs to put as much thrill and awe in their products as they do their keynotes. I’m an iPhone user so I can say all this sh*t without any bias. My Note 9 is a fcuking beast but I for some reason go back to my XS Max because messaging those with iPhones is cumbersome when sending long a.ss messages.

I have to say I switched to the galaxy s9 plus 256gb 6g of RAM and boy it is buttery smooth and an amazing phone. I had not given Samsung a chance since the galaxy s3, yes the s3. I thought very negative about their OS because back then it was laggy and iPhones were smoother, but that is not the case now, especially with the new update ONE UI coming soon! Anyways, apple is most likely struggling because iPhones just get boring after a while, they offer the same thing and they stay on their eco-system which is boring as hell if you don't download at least some 3rd party apps. This is coming from a guy that had the 10s Max, I sold that sh*t on Ebay a month after using it and switched to Android and so far I am extremely happy with how much they have improved. I would go as far as saying that my galaxy s9 plus is just as smooth as any iPhone imo..

iPhones just suck and havent changed much in years. Sucks too because I want an American company to dominate but they just dont get it. It's mainly their sheep who go out and buy the same phone over and over and their scare to change too much because that's what their fans claim to love about it...but at some point having the same interface/features you had a decade ago is going to become outdated

I keep saying that I'm still on my 6 from 2015 and I feel like I'm boasting but

the sh*t works yo. I may not have the best camera, fastest phone, or whatever.. but it does what I need it to do. Why buy a 1000 dollar phone to do the same 12 things I do on my current phone, that still works?

Watch, they're gonna throttle down phones hardcore now because no one is upgrading

And so it begins...

Dumb fu*ks, apple was designed to be somewhat affordable even for the poor. Out here wasting money on ads for recycled and rebranded tech, FOR SHAME ON YOU GEEKS!

word yo, good looks because I thought the newest update would actually make the phone faster somewhat

I'll make sure to stay on iOS 11.1

You guys do realize that resolution is more than just a number right? you have also considered PPI. any device with a PPI of over 300 on that small of a display...you won't be able to tell the difference. For people bi*ching about the iPhone Xr being under 1080p is laughable...to put things in perspective... any iPhone older than the 8s are under 1080p

Still on my iPhone 6. And still does what I need it to do. Still waiting on a drastic feature that would make me upgrade for that amount of money.

I've been riding with Apple since 2006, but they are really making me question my loyalty. Between the constantly increasing prices of their hardware and the shady repair policies and practices, they seem more anti-consumer than ever. I'm kinda glad that I built my gaming rig a year ago. At least when my MBP or iMac decide to sh*t the bed, I will have a reliable machine that I don't have to OVERPAY apple to fix.

I bought the iPhone X when it first came out. I'm happy with it, and honestly, I don't see myself getting a new phone for a long a.ss time. And even when I do, i'm actually going to consider android, as i'm tired of having payment plans for cell phones. I have enough bills I have to pay already.
