1. It's a DED article and I can't stand his writing style.
2. I've never gotten a virus using Android.
3. All my friends are using Marshmallow so this isn't a problem.
4. I hate walled gardens.
5. Android users are smart enough to avoid viruses because they can root their phone.
6. I love specs.
7. iPhone = Bendgate
8. I've always trusted Google because they're so innovative and cool.

I would have my questions about the "new" ness of the 4S, too, in 2014, but trust me on this, we are never going to get to the facts of this one. Waaay too minor. Next?

I prefer to speak ambiguously, because that way my integrity is never up for questioning.

The iPhone XS Max is what Apple has always promised the iPhone could be
Except for being a slab that Jobs said nobody would want. Even a 7 or 8 is bigger than I like. I'll assume the SE form factor, is dead, buried, gone for ever. But I'd snap an update version in a heartbeat. I wouldn't have to be an Xs in SE's clothing, just some more performance, and maybe an edge to edge screen.I don't think he was wrong. I think things changed.The original iPhone was used primarily as a phone and for that smaller works better.But increasingly the iPhone became a pocket sized computer that needed a bigger screen for all it was doing.And that "pocket sized computer' is one of the ways Apple is justifying their high prices: The phone now does so much that it's replacing or minimizing the use of computers and cameras.
LoneStar88 said:The true test for me of the success of ANY product is how many I see of them—without even looking for them—"out in the wild".
What I see rather often are: Apple iPhones, MacBooks, Watches; Tesla Sedan S, X, 3; Honda Accord, Civic
I own Apple and Honda products. I aspire to owning a Tesla.
That's good enough for me. The rest is fake news, media hype, and just gossip.

I hope that a President Trump acts responsibly. I hope that a President Trump won't cause a trade war. However, at this point, I do not know.

He didn’t gauge the market well for a quality Android phone for 2017, but his ability to engineer a device and bring it to market is impressive in its own right.
Maybe his next venture will be a market success.
Despite all the bellyaching on tech forums, actual customers tend to be very different from what they whiners want. It’s why multiple attempts to create modular smartphones is a pipe dream that adds cost and bulk without increasing utility or lifespan.
That's just hubris.
This characterization directly conflicts with your earlier response to me where you showed the Essential logic board claiming it’s a mighty feat to create a premium smartphone. Do you even realize you’re talking out of both sides of your mouth, contradicting in one comment what you claim in another?
Also, there are completely valid reasons to think android is a piece of shit other than an irrational hatred. Get fucking real.
