>This should come as no surprise.

No shit.

>Has Apple really made an OLED display with the color accuracy we expect from an Apple product?

No. Samsung has.

>Personally, I’d like answers to all these questions before I order one.

Just go to a store and play with a S8 or Note8. If you like the screen, order away.

This is your job Gruber. We will be waiting on pins and needles for your review.

> This won’t be that much of a gamble though: if you pre-order and the subsequent reviews give you pause, you should be able to cancel your order.

No, you scalp it on craigslist for double the price. Or worst case just return it to Apple.

This post establishes my NDA canary. The second I stop talking about iPhone X, you will know that I have a review copy in my hot little hands. Then it's only a matter of time before you will finally get to read my in-depth review of this incredible piece of breathtaking design and groundbreaking technology. (Spoiler: I will love it!)

There's one way to ease the pressure to build more units faster to meet demand: jack up the price to soften the demand.

There's something utter ridiculous about the thought of millions of people walking around with thousand-dollar glass objects in their hands.

S8 or Note8 still suffer from burn in and red tint issues. X at least solve that problems. Perhaps S9 or Note9 would be better.

Just another reason why I went with the 8.

@Booger: Samsung manufactures the display, but it's not the same screen as the S8 has. Different ppi, different pixel arrangement, hence different issues. Not to mention different hardware driving the things, and different QC.
