And doing this can risk corruption of data on the disk, possibly even further than what has occurred for reasons one may need to boot into Safe Mode.

My brother and his wife have it. I haven't personally used it or gotten a feel of how it works, but it definitely is different than that classic iPhone vibe from generations past when you look at it.

I think I'd feel very odd without the physical home-button. Even iPhone 7 spooks me out a bit with its haptic type instead of a "real" button.

My aunt has the iPhone X and I tried it. I can confirm that it feels very odd without the home button, it takes time to readjust your expectations of how iOS works. Either way, I don't really care, I'm an Android person.

I dual-booted Ubuntu with Windows and so far everything seems to be working out so far!

    That's great! I prefer to keep my dual boot systems on a separate hard drive out of space concerns. :P

    Speaking of the iPhone X, there're also people who're talking about the Google Pixel 2, which is a great phone too.

    The Pixel 2 is great but a little expensive, I'm very attracted by the OnePlus 5T. It has impressed me with the features that it has and especially for the price. I might really get one to replace my now unsupported LG G4.

    So I'm looking to replace this keyboard I have that I'm not too fond of with a high-end mechanical.

    BUT

    I have a extreme razer bias, to the point I think I ignore and discredit other options that could be as good or better than a Razer board.

    SO

    I ask for recommendations from my fellow techies. What's good my dude(ette(s))?

    I replaced the Corsair Devastator keyboard with a Corsair Strafe RGB, I've had it for almost 2 years now and it's fantastic. At the time, I spent €165 to have it, but now I can find it for a bit less depending also on the type of switches that are installed.
    It also has a USB passthrough on the back that you can use for your mouse.

    I really want to get my hands on a mechanical keyboard, but they are so damn expensive for me to even get one. ;;

      Yup, the Pixel 2 XL is the phone which is most often compared with the iPhone X! Do you own either of those? :o

      @ Raffy98 - The Oneplus 5T has nice specs. Definitely budget for money!

      I've tried mechanical keyboards, but I've never really got used to them. Corsair, Razer, Steelseries and Logitech make decent products from the reviews I've read. Personally, I don't really buy keyboards since I use my laptop for almost everything! 8D

      I think I'm going to try and go for the Ducky Year of the Dog board, when they finally put that up for sale. And if it sells out I'll get Ducky Shine 6 I think.

      I'm hearing too much good about the company to not give it a try!

        Oh hey! I'm using the S7 too!

        Yeah, I know what you mean. Spending over a thousand dollars for a phone just isn't really worth it. You could probably buy a high end laptop with the price of an iPhone X!

        Speaking of, I heard that the S9+ is gonna cost more than a thousand dollars... don't know if that's true, but a bit concerning at least.

        Phone prices are absurd here too, to the point where you need to finance them.

        I mean, I really don't see the point in spending a thousand dollars on a smartphone when there are cheaper alternatives that are as good as that phone if not better in some scenarios.

        Also, can we take a moment and talk about the fact that major companies are starting to put a horrendous notch on the top of their displays like Apple did with the iPhone X?

        If you don't want notches on phones, then the alternative is having bezels at the top of the phone. The sensors have to be somewhere on the phone, after all.

        I am not spurprised that other manufactures would follow up with similar designs after Apple made bezelless displays 'trendy' with the iPhone X.

          I've been used to having bezels on my cellphones so notches will take some getting used to.

          There's something wrong with phone prices these days and the day where cellphones cost $2000 will be a very sad day indeed. ;-;

          I prefer having a tiny bit thicker bezel rather than having a black line in the middle of my screen if I have to be honest. Borderless phones are beautiful but if this has to be the end result, then no thanks.

          This is something that I like much much more, this is the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2. Sure, the front camera placement is a bit odd, but I think that if you need to take a selfie you can just use it upside down to fix this problem; and if you're wondering where is the front speaker, it's inside the phone.

          Didn't Samsung already have a bezel-free display already? At least at the right-hand side that is.

            @ Raffy98 - That's the first time I've ever seen a phone with its front camera at the bottom. O__O
