    I guess the Internet will be awash with Apple announcements tomorrow.

    I'm sure the hype machine will praise how awesome the new tech from Apple will be.

    I'll be honest and state that the only thing I'm curious about is the V40. LG keeps teasing me stating that this will be the handset that is more complete - it's been the same song since the V10. Outside that, every thing else this year is snoresville - including the Pixel 3.
    My care factor about Apple...

    Didn't even know they were releasing anything...

    The only time I see Apple products is in a store or on a show. That's it.

    I'm curious but could care less.

    I'm sure it'll make must see TV. Just from my perspective, I'll pass. The only product I'd buy is the 10" entry level iPad if I wanted a tablet of that size.
    I get that.

    Yay I'll be able to watch it!

    I know, I'm saddened. I think I'll continue to hang out with my 7 unless I decide to switch to Verizon to use the XZ2 Compact again. That's extreme I know, but sometimes I need WiFi Calling and cricket only supports that on Android phones locked to them as far as I know.

    On that note, since Apple only makes phones tall and kind of big now, eh that's it for me.

    Color me unimpressed at Apple's announcements today. Well, Steve Jobs is happy - they finally killed the home button.

    Outside of that, nothing interested me. Happy for the Apple lovers. If I were inclined, the only iPhone I'd attempt to own is the 8. Maybe a X for collector's purposes - not really.

    Still nursing the new phone itch. No money available though.

    Every time I touch Andy's phone, I remember why I loved the design.

    Agreed. Having no money to do it, or no desire to get a new phone using my old ways helps.

    I'd like a G7+ to try. Not the normal one. I think I'm grown-up enough to go 6GB RAM + 128GB + SD slot now.

    I think that would be a nice combo for you.

    I think this needed a post of its own.

    I also decided to reset the Note 4 and set up the Essential Phone to be my new reading phone. It already seems like the battery life will be better over the Note (thankfully!) and the size and all of that screen is nice. I did decide to update to Android P (I really needed night light) and the gestures are interesting so far. I'm still trying to remember how to access the app drawer actually lol.

    I think I finally get those who have said that the notch isn't bothersome. I was really tired at a point last night and dropping that phone while reading on my face hurt but it felt better than the Note? I'm not sure if this is in my head or not but it felt less heavier to have the Essential fall on my face. I'm finally reading at work with it, starting today.

    Well my will power isn't as strong as @MSFTisMIA
    Bought a iPhone 8 Gold 256GB a few minutes back. This will replace the 2 year old iPhone 7 128GB Gold for the Mrs.

    In other news, I am glad I did not buy the Pocophone because I am going to be getting one courtesy of my Android device reviewer friend!

    Congrats on both counts! I hope she'll enjoy it.

    MIA does have solid willpower for sure.

    All this talk about will power keeps sidestepping the low cash at hand...

    ...I may get another Andy's phone as a collector piece but will wait until Black Friday sales.

    This is quite interesting.
    I'm thinking of getting my favorite Nexus 5 to try this out or a Galaxy S7 will also do just fine.

    It is! If you do it, please let us know what you think. I'm interested...but scared that there's no turning back on my phone if I break something. I really like that it has the essentials.
