I'm seriously thinking of switching over. I'm tired of looking around in public and seeing EVERYONE GLUED TO THEIR PHONE! And with these anti-privacy trends, I don't want to support these "smart phones" with another dime of business.

If you don't mind relying on the presence of wifi, it might also be worth looking a softphones. My experience with softphones so far is that service can be significantly more affordable and that my "phone" can be almost completely FOSS.

What’s even more crazy is the iPhone X won’t unlock unless your eyes are open getting IR radiation and a dot pattern blasted into them.

Gotta plug it in the neck into the nervous system just like in 'The Matrix'.

I think people that are heavily influenced by fashion will purchase it but those people don't always have money. I don't think working class people would want to buy a thousand dollar phone

Yet another reason apple can gargle muh fucking nuts.

They already won. If you are smart like me you moved to the mountains and setup a homestead. I can survive for 6 months without even trying.
