That's the price our local Office Depot charges, but I'm sure there's a DYI video that Is much cheaper. The only drawback is that you will lose water resistance.

I think it can be done a lot cheaper here. I guess I have insurance anyway although the excess means it still costs a fair bit.

IIRC, the X is more expensive at $500.

That website keeps crashing on me after 2 secs. I'd be very interested in that. Might replace my back up Lumia 1520 with it when it eventually conks out.

It won't let me post pics, but it looks like convincing renders of a phone with a foldable display. But I'm calling them fanmade.

Oh right. Will wait till we hear something concrete on that. I want to get more use of my Lumia anyway. Not regretting getting that as my backup phone at all.

Well my brother wants to buy my phone (he broke his) and I was wondering should I put that money to financing a phone or buying one outright.

So my options are the LG V30, Samsung Galaxy S8+, and OnePlus 5T. Which one should I go for?

Of those, I would go with the OnePlus 5T, assuming it works with your provider. I would have purchased it myself but the apps I need for work stopped working with my OnePlus One and I didn't feel like having to deal with returning it and buying something else. There are rumors the OnePlus 6 will have an in-display fingerprint reader.

I'm also considering the original Pixel Xl which is the same price as the 5T.

The only issue I have with the OnePlus 5T is Amazon sellers price gouging it to $700 for the base model while OnePlus offers it for $499 directly from them (personally going for the 8GB RAM/128GB Storage model). The other issue being I'm not sure if I want to use a credit card to buy from a Chinese company...

I would buy direct from OnePlus for the warranty. Just watch your credit card bills if you're worried. I'm sure everyone's has been stolen at some point. I was charged $13 for a Dutch Netflix account. No idea how that ever happened.

So the iPhone X is not selling well as its 8 and 8 Plus counterparts.

No surprise considering it starts at $1000, which is outside the price threshold for most people. They overpriced the thing. A starting price of $850 for 64GB or at least $900 for an 128GB model would have been better. I cringe at how high the rumored X Plus will be

It seems many are not happy with the notch at the top. I've read some stories about Face ID not working or getting fooled too.

The notch is only an issue when its on the side and I use my phone in the other orientation most of the time except for video. Face ID isnt perfect but I dont think it fails enough where Im wishing it wasnt there. I still wish this had Touch ID as well bc that was better

Yeah, would have been better to keep touch ID as well.
