What about import tax on arrival in the UK?

I bought a rather excellent ScotteVest jacket online and had to pay another 25% duty for it to pass through UK customs!

If you buy an iPhone outside of your country of residence, the warranty is invalid.

It seems the Ten is a delicate flower.

Can’t be much worse than the iPhone 4 & 4S. Glass back on those too. Same moaners publishing their click bait.

Look after your gear and you won’t break it.

Stuff breaks when you drop it, what’s new?

I had a 4 for three years and it was fine. I had a 6 and they were supposed to be easily bent. My 8 Plus is glass and straight in a sleeve. I'm not worried. I agree - look after it. I'm surprised that people get away with putting smartphones in jeans arse pockets without damage. Except a colleague at work who used to regularly shoot her Nokia down the pan when she went for a wee :lol:

It's not surprising that people drop phones. Have you looked at how people use them, holding them loosely with one hand and using a thumb and not looking where they are going while walking over concrete and crossing roads, ignoring traffic.

So I suppose keeping one in a case is a Jolly Good Thing, some people don't have any kind of case and I just wonder how often they are smashed.

Oh look my brand new car has got damaged after I deliberately drove it into a wall to see if anything happened when I did.

That does happen. How do you think the industry works out a cars safety rating?

I know. A consumer wouldn't do it though.

Looking forward to iOS 11.2 if the wireless charging rate will increase.

http://www.techradar.com/news/ios-112-will-deliver-faster-wireless-charging-to-iphone-x-and-iphone-8

My Qi charger is rated at the required 7.5W. Charging time is not bad now but faster is better in this context.

iOS 11.1.2 out. I mention it here as the listed fixes seem to relate to the Ten.
