Anonymous, 13 Jul 2015I love paying more for less. Thank you Apple.Many times less is more
Primark, 13 Jul 2015Wow, just wow, you're very quick to dismiss a lot of phones with potential...If it runs android no thanks, android still have very big issues.
AnonD-265341, 13 Jul 2015as far as i know both s3 and xperia z is still getting updates without lagging so i dont get u... moreYour comment is out of touch bro. who's using s3 even z in 2015. just last year many people bought iPhone 4s. It's only Apple that knows how to keep their customers from istore to a iPhone performance. I'm using iPad 2 and runs the latest software. Your Samsung tablet are shit. iPhone 5 I'm using it with the latest software. you invest when you buy iPhone. S4 is dead s5 is dead s6 exist only in the billboards. IPhone means investment
Ultimately any company that reports profits as high as Apple is going to get accused of ripping off consumers according to most of the dolts here because if they're profiting so much it means they could in fact sell their product for less. That's not how business works. It's about supply and demand. It's pretty obvious most users here haven't operated or even studied business in school.
to those who said that iphone is overpriced and just hype,
may I ask you what phone do you have?
and lets compare your phone to iphone in terms of performance and benchmarks..
And what about Xiaomi, Meizu, LG, Motorola, Lenovo, Microsoft, Sony, HTC etc.?
Everyone is loosing money except for Apple?
Anonymous, 13 Jul 2015I bought my iphone 4s back in 2012 and still getting updates, it's glitchy. But tell me about ... moreI think Android OEMs only supports the device with latest updates for 2 years. It depends actually if it's flagship, midranger, etc. Apple supports longer. Even their older devices for so many years. Imagine. iPhone 4 still getting updates? *meh* I wanna try iOS :
AnonD-416347, 13 Jul 2015Thats why apple watches wasn't a financial successWasnt success? Apple sels 10 times more watches on a daily basis than all other manufacturers combined when it comes to their so called smartwatches! So i belive yes, its a success for them!
AnonD-265341, 13 Jul 2015as far as i know both s3 and xperia z is still getting updates without lagging so i dont get u... moretea good lie i own an s3 with a 5.1.1 update it lags and its struggling even with the old 4.3 it used struggle like hell android phone suck in the software too many unusefull features that doesn't even work right
A, 13 Jul 2015Funny, a story like this should make people wonder how that is possible...to sell a cheap phon... moreill say u are wrong my friend ..that is correct most of the phones even high end are made under 200 us price tag..but if u ask me why apple charges way expensive first is because of the brand ..like in any other product u can purchase..second their devices looks and feel premium not plastic made like other expesive high end devices for example samsung wich loves to fool people with plastic ....updates and support..everybody loves updates because these ones make ur old phone feel in somehow like new..after getting a few features... best example is the iphone 4s it was manufactured years ago and still will get a taste of ios 9.....android is a good plattform but is getting laggy again... best one for me kit kat because was the only one capable to run on 512 ram devices wich is perfect...lolipop hardly can run in 1gb devices...but should be related to performance ..surely the migration from dalvik to art i guess..any way the support and slow updates are android downsides...there are good phones too but paying for 1 year updates support and then have to update phone wih custome roms by my self is not worth the price....
AnonD-72574, 13 Jul 2015Of course Apple makes the best Smartwatch!!!! Before i got my Steel Apple Watch i had a chance... moreWell I'm happy to say I'm a blind troll.... but I'm a smart one. My personal thoughts of this blatant scalping of their customers is one of reasons why I dislike Apple so much.

A, 13 Jul 2015Funny, a story like this should make people wonder how that is possible...to sell a cheap phon... moreYes, what people as consumers do not understand that this statistic is not a good one to have! Unless you are the business itself. This means that they are "ripping" people off more than other companies. You gain nothing as a consumer from a high profit. Imagine if Apple just raised the price of the iPhone by $1000? Their profit would be ridiculously high! But would you keep saying they are awesome for having such a high yield from their product? When will consumers learn how the system works?
AnonD-142922, 13 Jul 2015On another website i heard they took 50%.. only bunch of lies..Of course they lie, apple is nothing but a smart thief with extreme good lawyer support.
Wow! I fear, that in the near future all competition will be crushed and we'll all be on iPhones. It's like that 1984 Apple commercial. I have little hope for humanity. :(
