Anonymous, 10 Feb 2015they are paiyng for nothing, they build the iphones in china with labor costs next to nothing,... moreOh newsflash:
The Note 4 costs ~US$730, and the Galaxy Edge US$890.
Premium handsets go for premium prices.
Go buy a Meizu or Xiaomi if you want it cheaper and stop complaining.
Either way, companies are no charities, they don't care how much the labour costs as long as it's legal.
Pear, 10 Feb 2015Best Phonez Ever! you have no money, go buy cheap plastic android ha haha. iphone can phone... moreHow is something like a Sony Z Ultra/Samsung Alpha a 'cheap' plastic phone? I use a Sony Z3 Compact for my day phone and anything but cheap feeling. If you feel happy paying for over-priced hardware that actually has less functionality, go right ahead, it's a free world but please don't go slagging off others that make an informed choice.

Its north America sales,on network fr 200$ plan. Not sim free worth 850$ available elsewhere n the world.American merchandise are always preferred by all, and there is nothing else as consumer products.
Its still a show off cell than technically superior to others. Maybe we all realise that its still a toy,than an executive luxury.
Kudos Apple.. The only company that can Flock all of its customers and every part of the supply chain to maximise its profits and still have people giving you kudos for being an A'hole.. (/end Sarcasm)
Only a dumbsumer cares about profit since that means you're overpaying for mediocrity such as 1GB DRAM for a flagship.
Congratulations to Apple. Looking forward to replacing my old iPhone 5 with a 6S this fall.
Remember, nothing is "free". iOS and OS X updates are not free. Swift is not free. The A7 and A8 processors are not free. Metal is not free. Everything costs time, effort, and money, and hardware engineers and software developers deserve payment for their work. Apple's profits are not just "extra cash", but pay for their employees, facilities, and all the stuff we get for "free" when we buy Macs and iThings.
By numbers apple sales less than 25% but profit 93 % ? Oh my god ! How much profit per phone? . So apple 's fantasy is still working.
