samsung will cut the price heavily ( voluntarily because of lack of sales ) for every flagships ,prices they dont deserve premium pricing ..
another loser here other than samsung is their early buyers ..
anyway therir premium phone business is dead

And if the only thing thats good about the iPhone is it's price retention then that suggests it's only good for selling!
After all, why would you care about how much it holds its value if you're not interested in selling it ? HaHaHaHa XD
Common Sense, 30 Oct 2015Less money going to Samsung when you buy an iPhone is far better than NO money going to Apple ... morebuying a note or s6 is in itself is a big loss .. lol
consider a case .. sammy fanboy buys S6 for 900USD in the first week and within 2 months the same S6 model sells for 30% less..
this egg on your face by samsung to their users is the main reason the death of their premium phone business
From the launch of the new iphone apple gets an entire year to come up with a new iphone , ipods and ipads don't really count cause they often use the chipsets of older iphones so basically a year to excel in the phone's os and utilize its processor to its already isolated medium , iphones aren't more powerful than android phones but their custom os enables a faster more effecient communication between the cpu,gpu and ram which android provides less effeciently because of the many different chipsets that run android and because android flagships offer higher resolutions than an iphone the margin of permorfance seems bigger than it really is
Can't you all see it ? There is always Two sides fighting over who is better ? pc vs consoles samsung vs apple, well consoles are offering less beefier specs but they make it up with the exclusive titles they offer while pc offers superior graphics, it is just a matter of your own liking apple is equivalent to consoles in this matter they have retained some old specs such as the screen but in all other aspects they have been moving forward , i agree that their services are over priced and sometimes you can feel the limitations but overall it is a solid experience, I am a xperia use though

the way samsung premium flagship loses it price proves it doesn't deserves its premium pricing..
40% price drop within 2 months is lolworthy for any flagships ..
anyway RIP to all early buyers of samsung flagships .. no software updates and might have paid 30 to 40% more for the same device

I'm quite certain that you can achieve the same if not better results with Android in a far less inexpensive way, you have MORE choices with Android.
Personally when i'm looking for a device, i aim for the device that offers THE MOST functionality with THE BEST spec/price ratio.
Most iPhone users say "it meets my demands" and that's why they choose iPhones
Whereas i personally choose a device that "exceeds" my demands, especially at a LOWER cost than any iPhone.
Who in their RIGHT MIND would pay MORE for a LESS capable device ?

Them mediocre devices does more than enough for people who are heavily invested in Apple products. Speed, sync, everything that they offer on their platform works perfectly. I personally want more than what they offer so I chose Android. Price wise Apple indeed is very aggressive, charging premium prices for not so expensive hardware but then again they charge them prices and people pay for the experience, mind you, not everyone's a geek or has the needs that can't be fulfilled by their products. it's again a long debate where no one will win. Samsung stretched S6 and made Note 5 and cherry on top didn't even release in Europe, promotions in USA, phones released in USA, what does that tell you? they all want to be Apple, why? because they are all the same, they are a business and there to make money. anyways, it was just a quick rant over thing's i feel on personal level, nothing against the question's you raised, everything's valid one way or another.
