    I like the apple eco system, however this approach has it's drawbacks. For instance just getting an Iphone is cool but then you cannot use 30% of it's features as they need you to have apple watch or a mac or comunicate with other Iphone users. I get that this is the cost of having a good polished seemless connectivity but getting into the whole eco system is really expensive if you are living outside of the USA due to import taxes.

    Both. Counterintuitively both of these sybsystems feed into a well oiled holistic system, where the not so polished features push the boundaries and forces the likes of Apple to adopt and improve the user experience aspect of these features.

    I have watched many Tech Reviews over the years and only two people stand out for me, MKBHD and Detroit Borg. They are very succinct, clear, and direct and add a lot of visuals to their presentations without being too opinionated or preachy. Others start off good, then they make themselves the center of attention with nothing but their face all over the screen, and the phone that they are supposedly reviewing is sitting face down in a corner in the screen. What are they thinking? Do they want to be the next Joe Rogan? Others resort to twisted faces, gimmicks like slamming the box on the table, etc. And all I can do is immediately give a thumbs down and move on to another video. I guess there should be a simple formula these other guys need to make a tech video. Before posting the video look at the screen time of your face vs the product. If your face is more than the product then you have failed! Keep up the great work MKBHD, have watched you for a long time now, and do not ever change the way you present or comment on the products!

    Why invent while you can innovate and still make the most money out of it? Only thing I hate about apple's "way": Without LG (RIP), HTC (RIP), Sony (RIP soon?), Huawei (US RIP), Samsung, Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo, etc. iphones would be plain boring. People hating on all other brands should at least respect what they done for apple and their iphones and not hate on them.

    I take a lot of heat off people for my deep love of Apple products and one thing they love to throw at me is well we had X feature years ago. But honestly I will wait until Apple offers it. Because I know when Apple launches a new product its going to work. I won't have a ton of issues and very rarely will I have issues with things working seamlessly between all my devices. It just comes across that they take more care in what they put out there to improve the user experience. And given the Apple business model that most of their revenue is generated by hardware sales rather than software or data mining their customers they can afford to take their time and polish the finished product a bit more before launch.

    The thing is Apple has a stellar reputation. Sure you may not like them but I think we can all agree that objectively they haven't made a bad phone in the last 6 years. They don't want to risk their simplistic yet advanced ecosystem with useless but unique devices. I have a Samsung phone(2 actually), watch, buds, and TV. I can still admit Apple's ecosystem is leagues above any other company by a Longshot.

    It's because Apple is a consumer of technology. They're not actual innovators and if they do, they only do it mainly to get more money from their customers (yeah all business do but more than the others 😄).
    Think about it, what has Apple contributed to the world outside the inherent benefits of them being a competition to others?
    I sound like a hater because I am...just with Apple 😂

    Gotta disagree with the premise that it "takes time" to polish features and that's why they're late.
    Apple has the money and branding to develop at a rapid pace and the level of control to quality-assure with fewer variables to account for. They can make a seamless experience MUCH faster than they do, and there are many areas (especially hardware) wherein Apple lags or has lagged horribly, such as their wireless charging, screen size/quality, and waterproofing that have no reasonable explanation for the delay in coming to Apple devices.
    Well. One reasonable explanation: profit. It's cheaper to just not add features you don't need to add to sell their products. They leverage their captive audience to deliver experiences that are overall pleasant and work "fine" so long as you don't know what you are missing out on. And on Apple's end, it's much safer to let others innovate and just eventually lift what sticks and can be easily implemented.
    Just look at folding screens. Apple is nowhere in that highly innovative and interesting space, and won't be until and unless they prove to be a safe and profitable innovation, just like with large phone screens many years ago.
    I can hardly fault them for doing what helps their bottom line, but at the same time it doesn't sit well with me that they rake in so much profit with so little risk and yet get so much credit for no readily apparent reason. Some of Apple's curated experiences might feel more refined in some cases, but at the same time the overall experience of owning Apple hardware rather than others - which you lock yourself into if you want the benefit of that seamless experience - straight up locks you out of many other features and benefits you could have while still setting everything up to work nicely together with relative ease.
    Good on them for adding positively ancient Android features, though. Better late than never.

    Fragmentation across the entire Android spectrum is what made me switch to iPhone years ago. In my opinion it really is quality over quantity. 5,000 different versions of Android phones a year vs. 4 different iPhone models per year. One of my biggest complaints was that Google would CONSTANTLY churn out promising apps only to abandon them a year later, tuck them away inside another app, or drive users away altogether (Allo/Duo, Tasks, Google Music, Photos not being unlimited anymore). My Androids would lag and crash consistently, and the fact that on one phone I HAD to install a custom ROM just make it behave like a normal phone was atrocious.
    I want to believe that Android phones these days are much better, but by now I'm so far deep in the Apple pool that I can't ever go back. Even though that Galaxy Z Flip 3 is catching my eye because I'm a sucker for flip phones!

    I started with the iPhone and ended up with a Samsung phone and never looked back. I didn't like the restrictions apple forced on me. I hated having to plug my phone to itunes on my laptop all the time. Nowadays, I like the features of my Samsung but the world is so "apple dependent" it's rare to find a person with an Android. My fiance' has an iphone and our phones absolutely do no work together. I record a beautiful 4k video on my phone and can't send it to hers without it being degraded and pixeled.

    So if I really love the iPhone , but hate every other apple product and truly think they are shit.
    Specially the AirPods and the Iwatch.
    As a musician the AirPods sound like 1
    19$ earphones, their price is absolute bullshit.
    And the iwatch screams hipster millennial , and snowflake so loud you can hear it from the top of Mount Everest.
    Mac 💻 are just way less powerful than regular pc price wise.
    So yes… I only like the iPhone.
    Soo.. if I hate the apple ecosystem and only love the iPhone , are you saying I don’t really have a train to stay?

    I definitely prefer waiting longer for more polished features. It's the same reason why I dont mind delays on video games: If they decided it will take longer, IT WILL TAKE LONGER. You cannot rush it, as this will result in unfinished products with lots of bugs and problems.
    Same with apps. They're developed. Same with features. They're also developed. Due to that, there is human error from the developer, and it takes time to polish out the problems and bugs. I'll take my delays and enjoy a fully finished product.

    This way of innovation is sadly outdated, that's why android has recently won the so called world war of phones. The gap between iphone and innovation used to be 1 or 2 years, but now it's like 4~5 years. And it seems that it will only get bigger, if apple stays it's course.

    I agree that having everything work seamlessly together is definitely worth the wait, but it seems like Apple has small things that they could implement that they just...choose not to. For instance, why can't you mark texts as unread? Such a simple feature that's on the top of my want list. Sometimes it seems like they don't put out some updates just for the sake of saving them for a later update to keep the consumer waiting.

    My preference is first more than late and baked. That puts me more in the Android camp. That said late and baked together is probably better, since the wow factor of being first gets lost in the lack of integration and the fact that most iPhone users ignore these new features and consider them useless or nerdy. Hence, when they come baked to iPhone, iPhone users usually believe that Apple invented the tech because it was completely ignored by mainstream to that point, even if it did already exist to an extent before.

And from a business stand point google is more business friendly because of its ecosystem.
    Stop acting like apples ecosystem is so big and Superior or efficient when it's not. It doesn't work with enough to be. Shoot google even works well with apple. When apple can only work with itself. If you want efficiency than it needs to work all the time...... Apple is a sometime worker while google is an all the time work horse that works with everyone because it's more efficient.

    TLDR - They lack innovation and have no appetite for risk?

    Apple can also afford to spend a lot of time on developing these new features that have already been seen in the Android market because Apple's closed, unified ecosystem allows them to do so in the first place. They know most people won't leave the Apple ecosystem just for some new features on Android devices and so Apple can take it's time with these features without fear of too many people ditching Apple for Android.

      It's actually far more frustrating with Apple, because unlike Android which is designed to work on different form factors and variable specs, apple devices are VERY much standardized. If apple adds a new software feature they have a very strong/solid code base to add it to and therefore testing time should be far reduced. This BS that "Apple is being patient" is absolutely stupid and is something Apple fans use to justify getting features late. Apple isn't innovative, they just know how to market themselves as elitists and because their products are higher priced people who finally get them feel they've hit something special. Apple is to phones what Beats is to Headphones. Overpriced, overhyped products that people get more for the name than for the functionality.

    Here’s the thing: no one denies that Apple does things better most of the time. But when your brand loyalty becomes blindness, that’s when it infuriates me. I have a friend who pretty much begs for this or that feature to be a thing or make its way to IOS. I tell him that it already exists on Android, but he just comments that Apple does it better. I get that. I’m an IOS user myself, but does that mean you’re gonna wait years and years instead of checking that feature out on a budget smartphone even? The answer is no because that phone isn’t iPhone. Like how does one’s brain work that way. No one is telling you to give your precious iPhone up, but if you love tech like you claim you do, try out other brands while keeping your main one.

    Always late because they can't innovate. Only copy it once the feature is proved
