Hephaestus8, 20 Apr 2017No such thing as mix sapphire with glass. Lol. Anon was just trying to say that Apple's "sapphire" is not actual pure sapphire found in expensive watches and as such it scratches far easier. Actually, it scratches almost at the same level as your usual Gorilla Glass. Google "Apple 'Sapphire' iPhone Lens - Whats it made of?" for more info
Claudiu.Lucian, 20 Apr 2017you are right about "Every product has its buyer." like a watch worth 2000$ is more of a bling... moreExactly. You pay partly for the product and the rest for the image you get for owning one, in the eyes of some people off course.

This is the reason why I will never buy an iPhone, because a Nexus/Pixel device works exactly as smooth, has as good software support and you don't need to pay any extra.
iron wolve, 20 Apr 2017Apple aways paid analys. 200 million iphome6 are too muchI won't say the analyst is paid, but rather I'd say that estimation of iPhone 8 projected figure based upon chipset is dumb. If Apple has ordered 200m chipsets, this only means that iPhone 7s, 7s+ and 10th anniversary iPhone, plus some iPad will have same chipset, the A11. it is impossible for Apple to sell 200m iPhone 10 alone. Because Apple's biggest hit so far, the iPhone 6 duo crossed that milestone in 2 years, and combined.

Its quite ignorant to say such a large amount of people are all extremely stupid. Bottomline is that Android phones from HTC and Samsung are also very expensive and they still sell. The Pixel is apparently a success and that matches the iPhone in price. I have only one complaint about my iPhone 6S and that is notifications absolutely suck on it. That aside I see it superior to my Note 5 which takes better pictures in truth. Battery life is similar, screen are just as great, footprint is nice, I get quick charge using an iPad charger, great integration with Mac OS, iPads and iWatches.
It will be a beast ,because it's from apple.Graphics and performance is already top notch in iPhone 7.
Claudiu.Lucian, 19 Apr 2017200M iPhone 8 ? This people are crazy ? (I mean those 100-200M people which will buy them)The title is more like a click-bait. The content itself talking about chipsets and not the iphone itself. They are making 200M chipsets; the A11 chipset. Divide that for three different iphone model namely, iphone 7s, iphone 7s plus, & iphone 8. I'm 'guessing' 70M for iphone 7s, 80M for 7s plus and 50M for iphone 8(allegedly limited quantities). We could reduce some more of that numbers if we were to include upcoming ipads as well using the same chipset.

headline should read " having stalled the note 7 sales, ap*le desperately order 200m Samsung shaped screens ,in attempt to halt landslide sales loss, as despite frantic media paid propaganda, people ditch ugly masive bezelled low quality iphone screens for state of the art Samoled screens since 6 edge models, despite.media paid cover ups"

Great product will always sell and Apple made it sure by not giving their OS to anyone else, so cheap chinese companies cant steal iPhone and sell it lot cheaper like in android world they does.
