    I'm looking forward to Apple haters having utter meltdowns when the event gets going and features and pricing are announced.

    I still have my iPhone 6s, skipped the 7 even though i was due an upgrade and just went to a sim only contract.

    The only problem i have with it is the battery is a bit shit and needs charging at lunch time now as well as overnight.

    Otherwise i'm not sure what they can sell me this time round... but i've said that before

    I decided to ditch iPhones last year. Between me and the other half we have had 1 every year and every single one has needed a repair on the warranty or just outside it.

    I'll keep my S8 and buy the new Lego Millenium Falcon instead.

    What are they going to invent this time? :-)

    Want to know more about the ATV. Also if there are any tech refreshes on the MacBook Pros (hightly doubt it).

    May be something on the Mac Pro(?) that lunches in December. And the pod thingy.

    @werewolf_poo ok, first of all I'm dead jealous of the fact that you'll be buying the UCS Falcon.

    But I feel that I have to warn you that other phones break as well.

    I sort of regret getting the 7 as I could have hung on for the X. But then again there'll be something incrementally better next year to save my money for.

    Don't forget using your face to unlock and 3D animated emoji. I'm looking forward to some cool AR stuff.

    I'm going to guess that top-end phone will retail at £1299

    Edit: Apple users would probably have a meltdown at that as well.

    How were you planning on managing without a physical home button?

    Technically the new Samsungs can do face unlocking...

    ...

    ...

    ...the only drawback is that a fucking picture of your face is enough. /facepalm

    @werewolf_poo

    That's pretty rubbish, but equally i've had an iphone 6s for 18 months and previous to that i've had two other models for a long time and never had issues with any of them.

    Equally my experience with the S3 and S5 was pretty shitty, the only way i could get an acceptable experience out of it was dicking around with custom firmware etc.

    Anectdotal of course :-)

    I'm pretty happy with my 7 for the time being but interested to see what is coming.

    Think I'll go for the 12.9 Ipad before a new phone.

    Money is an arbitrary concept of arbitrary amounts arbitrarily assigned to bits of paper

    It's worth the value you attribute to it.

    Wow that's deep :-)
