    Available from "Town Squares". 🙄

    Very disappointed they didn't dedicate an announcement to the RHP iPhone app.

    I wonder what that is in dollars, at the current exchange rate.

    I'd been hearing about the $1000 price point, but 1000 pounds is a lot more than that.

    As it is, my Galaxy S8+ set me back around $770, and I thought that was outrageous.

    We're not known as "rip off Britain" for nothing.

    Generally electronics has been £s for $s here for years. It "sucks", to use a common Americanism.

    I've got a 7 and wish I'd saved money and got a six. The telephone microphone "sucks" on this model.

    I have a galaxy 7 which is water resistant, is the new Iphone water resistant? That seems to me to be the largest failure mode, getting wet. I can dunk my galaxy in 4 feet of water without damage. Can you say that about the new Iphones?

    I have a 3 year old HTC, and am very happy with it. Assume I'm disqualified too!

    It'd be approximately $1,300 at the current exchange rates.

    We tend to pay a lot for our tech.

    It turns out that the $1000 price point I'd heard about was for the iPhone 8 and 8plus.

    The X is running around $1300+ here. Crazy.

    Not defending that price, but UK price will include VAT, & US price will not include sales tax.

    So difference is less than you might assume.
