    The iPhone will be a decent machine, everyone can decide if its worth to them or not. Most will be sold in contracts anyways. But What I will not do, is put an always on infrared night vision camera in my fucking sleeping room.

    I can turn off touch ID if I want. I can be sure that unlocking Touch ID takes some effort. But all it takes to unlock my hypothetical iPhone X is steel it from my desk and pretend to take a selfie with me. This is going too far for me.

    - No always listening speakers in my living room like Alexa
    - No laptop cameras pointing at me all the time
    - No night vision camera in my bedroom (wtf apple)

    I'm not paranoid. Its been known for several years that basically any government is able to access any of your hardware.

    • Most won't be sold in contracts. I don't know if any carrier in the US even offers that anymore. It's payment plans now.formed
    • in my opinion, these payment plans are just a new name for contracts ... the idea is pretty much the same baking the phone cost into the monthly chargesmonospaced
    • yep - I haven't paid more than handset RRP on last 3 plans. Don't get this moaning about paying way more on contract - o2 changed it years ago now. I only payfadein11
