Hahaha that's the bottom and upper limit of all the iphone sales bro :)))
After getting every iPhone since the 3GS, the time came to jump ship because Samsung made the perfect phone. Photos in low light. Best screen and design ever. So many features not found elsewhere. And now what, iPhone latest.. Will feature borderless screen like s8? Woohoo.

iPhone 6 series was a lemon with bending, touch disease defect and insufficient 1GB DRAM. I'd be very surprised if iPhone 8 doesn't exceed iPhone 6 sales.
Oh it will, Apple took Nokia's place of being the most known expensive phone. 80% of the ppl it, esp the women, admitting it or not, they are buying it to show off their financial status, by having the status symbol of a most expensive smth.
For 3 years now, few could tell the difference, if you are holding the latest most expensive toy, or last year's and no longer can afford the latest one. Now this is going to be the first of its kind and a definate wealth status symbol. It is going to sell like hot bread, regardless of everything else! It doesn't matter if your iPhone still works, as long as you can get the attention of the Blondy that is looking for a new sponsor and to make sure that you can afford her, she wants to see that you can afford the latest and most expensive iPhone8
Yeah whatever... People said the iPhone 7 would flop but I think Apple's stock has gained like 35-40% since that device came out.
All that thanks to those chinese Android companies releasing 120 "different" iPhone copycats a year. The "rich" markets are stagnant, with people keeping their phones up to five years (apparently people learned the value of money) and increasingly relying on second hand phones and carrier contracts. The "developing" markets, them, are flooded with those Chinese companies, promising useless specs to foolish customers (those markets, like India, have phones with big numbers like 6GB RAM, but there's no point of that much RAM, which is often refurb last-gen RAM, so does the other parts. Not to mention always faster LTE despite the theorical 150-1000Mbps promised since the carriers only offer 5Mbps usually) and since they are less wealthy, they either keep their phones even longer than they should or they always run after those cheapo-lame devices.
harsenik, 12 Jul 2017its not just about the hardware... its about the software too... apple is more restrictive but... moreEspecially pixel and OnePlus.if others opt for pure Android then it's game over for iOS but idk why none is opting for pure OS
I have always been an Apple sceptic and will be so in the future, especially because of the absurd pricing. But I have to say that when the iPhone 6 price dropped I bought one to try it, and yes, it's a good phone and a good and stable OS, with regular updates. Looking at all the iPhone 8/X rumors, I really don't see why it would sell so well, but you'll never know, after all it's Apple and many people see that as some kind of religion and always want or need the latest Apple product no matter what price and no matter how much innovation, or the lack of, the new iPhone offers. Personally I think it will sell much better than the 5C, but less than the 6.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 12 Jul 2017Yay the IPHONE trend is slowly going down. Come to ANDROID IOS users :)You know, i'm always hope that the "why not iphone" trend die out, which mean that whenever a group want to take selfie, there always some person say "use the iphone" or "iphone has great camera" or "look the iphone is waterproof" its like iphone is the only great phone to them
What i mean is i bope iphone is Treated like other brand, not overhyped, or brainwashed
Adronia, 12 Jul 2017Iphone 8 is a joke , flat screen 1400$,no headphone jack,no touch id what's next no. Camera?ok... moreits not just about the hardware... its about the software too... apple is more restrictive but wayyyy stable! (android OS is getting better and better tho)
The article is right, this isn't 2015 anymore. Smartphones have gotten a lot better since then and even "budget" options rival flagships from just a few years ago - why pay $1000+ when a $200 phone works perfectly for your needs? The only reason it will sell at all is because of the artificial hype train and "status symbol" - most of those sales being to people who make poor financial decisions and can't actually afford one.
This is rather obvious. And it's not just Apple, all manufacturers are (going to be) heading downhill with regards to units sold. People are going to be holding onto their existing devices longer and longer because technology is becoming ridiculously expensive!
