Do whatever you want manually the first time, you're going to have to do that way anyway. I gave up doing things twice trying Siri

All make for a winning formula. Plus make all the most important parts (screens, chipsets, memory) for the other biggest mobile phones out there too, you are gonna make some big money!
When Apple does it we get this:
...a top of the line, waterproof (resistant is what you meant but whatever) leading device that doesnt blow up and destroy property and which has never been banned from all aircraft for fear of killing everyone aboard. Plus a smart watch that doesnt look like a hockey puck strapped to your arm. And no gimmicks like eyeball-scrolling or VR or faulty facial recognition that has already been defeated with a simple photograph.
apple pay works at 11% of credit card terminals in the USA right now, Samsung pay works at 98% of credit card terminals in the USA. Not having to carry my credit cards or wallets around ever is worth every penny. Thank goodness i have never had any problems with overheating or fires on any samsungs I have ever owned. I can also reach over without looking in the dark, and get my phone charging in the middle of the night by simply placing it on the charging pad on my nightstand, no fiddling for cables and finding the charging port on the bottom of my phone. and I have had that feature for 3 years NOW, i dont know how i could live without it. I had an iphone 1 all the way thru the iphone 5 but when i took a fair and balanced look at what apple was offering and what samsung phones were offering, i had to switch to samsung and i gotta say, I have never thought of switching back once.
If apple adds wireless charging finally to their phones, you all will see a small piece of the great features i have been enjoying for years and you will still have so many other great features you dont even realize you are missing which you will wait years for because you are "patiently waiting for Apple to do it the right way". Good luck with that belief, i'm over here enjoying the future!

Or should I say steal. Apple has never innovated, it only steals or buys ideas from other companies (cough Xerox, yeah, your first breath was stolen). But most Apple sheep can't understand that. I am on a quest to educate them, but it's one step at a time. Apple sheep are predominantly very simple, non-tech people. The iPhone, a simple phone for very simple users.

GOT TO SAY THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL PHONES. IMO, THE MOST BEAUTIFUL EVER. AND PAIR THAT MICRO BEZEL DESIGN WITH A CRAZY AMAZING SCREEN..........WOW.
For the doubters you need to see it in person and feel it. Pictures don't do it justice.
Hope the iPhone8 at least matches it on hardware design. Frankly the iPhone6, 6s, and 7 has fallen behind hardware design (the way the product looks) compared to Samsung. Kinda sucks. Apple should have the best designs, but frankly that has not been true since the iPhone6. have no idea what Ive does, but his iPhone designs have been CRAP lately.
Donal trump is not a stupid person. He doesn't have all he has for no reason. The people who follow him are stupid, but donal trump isn't. He is a very smart business man who knew how to get votes from ignorant people and the fact the he is the elected president proof he did his research and knew how to manipulate people into voting for him. Don't underestimate him, again. The funny thing is that a lot of people voted for him to try and get illegal immigrants out, and in voting for him they just put a former illegal immigrant in the White House
