  1. Smaller notch in other phones means that there's no face Id on them. So Apple has figured out how to make it smaller and still use face id

  2. i'll deal with the notch as I'm applying tape across the device blocking unnecessary biometric sensors. Just give me a phone that doesnt stare back at me!

  3. Why would Apple make the BUDGET iPhone better than the $1,000 iPhone? They're not going to bring expensive FaceID components into a budget phone. These "rumors" are completely baseless, as are most "rumors".

  4. The iPhone SE 2’s notch is smaller cuz it doesn’t have True tone and brightness sensors, it could also have a smaller speaker

  5. Seems like Apple may be following Samsung. iPhone SE (2018) will compete with the smaller galaxy lines. iPhone X/X Plus to battle the Galaxy S Plus and Note series. iPhone SE features will debut future X features like the S line does for the Note line. (Just a thought)

  6. Could you provide information about Samsung gear s4?should I wait for it or just buy s3…I really need to know when it is expected to come out…
