nonsense. if anything, a disfigured face would be easier for the system to recognize, not more difficult. the more unique your face looks, the easier it is for facial recognition to identify.

the faces that would be hard to recognize are the ones like those plastic instagram hoes that all look like the same kardashian clone.

The idea of apple having a database full of high quality facial recognition data for millions of americans is terrifying, given their relationship with US intelligence agencies and the current state of mass surveillance in this country. didnt we learn anything from snowden? this phone can go fuck itself.

PROS
-A11 Bionic CPU should be the fastest smart phone CPU for 2017.
-Facial recognition, tracking your every movement, sending it to the cloud. So we should get a fappening 4.0 iCloud hack that beats the last few.


CONS
-Samsung makes the displays for Apple, so that's instantly a downgrade on the iPhone X/8 over a few competitors.
-No 3.5mm jack
-No upgradable storage
-Not open source friendly(so not code auditable from a company that isn't exactly honest to begin with)/locked into ecosystem or be frustrated trying to work around it.
-No Type-C universal connector
-No removable battery
-No Fingerprint scanner
-Not relevant outside of the delusion bubble people refer to as California.
-Few worthwhile features are at the start of Apple's release cycle, but competitors are nearing the beginning of their release cycle for next gen while old gen still remains on par

having the ability to customize the basic specs on your cellphone =/= wearing the same clothes every day.

anyway, i am very doubtful that your anecdote is true in the first place. einstein didnt wear the same outfit every day. just google search for images of einstein, there are certainly plenty of photos of Einstein wearing a variety of clothing.

Another story about Einstein that is highly exaggerated but has some basis in reality concerns his clothing. Many say that Einstein wore the same thing every day and had a closet full of the exact same suit, shirts, ties, and shoes. This isn't true, especially when Einstein's second wife, Elsa, was alive. Elsa took a firm hand when it came to her husband's appearance, and pictures of the two of them touring everything from Japan to the American Southwest show Einstein in beautiful silk vests, and dapper neckwear -- as well as in a kimono and an American Indian headdress. But after Elsa passed away and Einstein spent his last 20 years as a professor emeritus at Princeton, his clothing did become more, er, irregular. He openly disliked wearing a suit and while already legendary for often going sockless, now he wore sandals. Perhaps the most common pictures of Einstein from that time show him happily shuffling around his Princeton study wearing a big gray sweatshirt. Luckily for Einstein, his life coincided with the invention of the cotton sweatshirt -- for he was enamored of the soft warm comfortable garment.

Wtf. Why remove the fingerprint scanner? Are you kidding me. The only plus about the face scanner is it scans in low or no light from what I'm seeing. This can backfire with malfunctioning.

I ain't blowing that much. I rather pick up a MacBook which I do need. I'm fine with my jailbroken 6S which is incredibly fast and has crazy tweaks.

I'll be looking at android to see start they offer in the future. I'm seeing the ppi of the screen is also shit
