Now Apple users know what they are paying for. Profit to the company, Ceo's and shareholders.
Normal customers pay for products, but I knew Apple was different and innovative.
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2015Did I say their screen was bad quality or not good? And was their screen 720/1080p before????
... moreYes, let's try this again!
" What apple does is claim that it's all unique and supremely optimized so that it's way more advanced and premium then others.... When really it's not. "
The terms "optimised" and "premium" are terms that imply the quality of a product.
The screen was merely one example, but I think it's hopeless to argue with you around nonsense claims like "basic" OS and "limited" specs, because those words simply cannot be quantified and are biased.

When you see a Samsung product, you have to be tech fan to guess if it is a Galaxy Express2 or an S4. That's why Samsung has to sell it's flagships cheaper.(beside of the plastics of course). By the other hand, an Apple product is almost perfectly recognisable. And the premium label is on you. It is like Mercedes in automotive business.
Gavin_Is_A_Man, 27 Feb 2015I knew Apple customers had to pay through the nose, but I didn't realise the situation was THAT bad!Lmfao! Right!? And how many are in here actually accruing like it's something to bread about!!! Hahahaha.
And of course all the blind sheep denying what it means
I knew Apple customers had to pay through the nose, but I didn't realise the situation was THAT bad!
I don't really know how apple pulls it off, but it's really impressive that they have made so much with so little market share...

Apples sales volume is about the opposite of their profit volume.
Unless someone has a better explanation it's proof they are scamming
Once I saw a comparison between samsung and apple manufacturing costs. It turned out that apple manages to manufacture an iphone a tiny bit cheaper than samsung does with the actual S x - phones. But their selling price is a lot different. Meaning that while apple successfully made people believe that their product is more premium, far superior (people did not care that 80% of an iphone is made up from samsung and other korean parts) samsung could never get rid of the "cheap" tag.
This is why they are desperately pushing metal frame and glass shit.
If I were samsung - I would have long ago launched a different brand - like automotive players do: nissan - infinity, or toyota - lexus - etc etc.
Samsung is stupid - but nevertheless they can make excellent phones.

And good you agree their screens among other things are cheaper...
Overall good twist and side track on what I said. How about actually reading what you reply to and taking a moment to understand it before replying?
So shall we try again?
What this pretty much means is that Apple sells a cheaply made phone for a lot more money than it's worth. Simple as that. Either this or Android OEMs sell a very expensive made phone for exactly or slightly more money than it's worth.

iPhone's specs are perhaps lower (720p / 1080p screens) compared to 2K in other flagships, but that doesn't mean that their QUALITY is worse just because the price is cheaper. What planet do you live on?
I won't argue any longer, you just don't know how to have a logical debate.

Do you know you lied and are just that much a troll?
Or are you enough a fool to believe that.
Many android cost more in RnD and/or parts than the iPhone and just about all sell for less.
Only iPhone uses basic buggy software on limited hardware and charges more than others.
IE... All the profit.
If that's not the case then explain how their profit margin is so high when their sales volume is dramatically less.
