piku, 15 Sep 2017So you mean One plus and xiaomi are not paying anything to workers so you mean one plus and xiaomi has the same tech and R&D like apple?
That is very high. 412$ is a lot more than devices like the 7 and 7 Plus. No wonder Apple is pricing this so high. I still think the 999$ model should've been 128GB and then the 1,149$ blasphemy of a price should be 512GB.

Oathbreaker, 15 Sep 2017Haters of the iPhone X or anything Apple need to realize that Apple is a business. Not a chari... moreSorry, but features in this already outdated tech has already been there on Android. Bezeless phones? Mi Mix and Essential phone have it. Face ID? Samsung has something similar already. Headphone Jack? *ahem*
AnonD-1825, 15 Sep 2017"Sad.. total ripoff. Even some of the top Android devices are a ripoff..the Note 8, pixel, son... moreBut what will a consumer gains from getting a phone from bigger brands? Samsung only update their high end devices and forgets their mid-budget devices.
AnonD-546038, 15 Sep 2017"The most expensive component is the 5.8inch OLED panel manufactured by Samsung. Its price is ... moreThe total sum of all components might be not so high as the end price, but don’t let the numbers mislead you - the price does not include the actual manufacturing, logistics and most importantly R&D costs. baby.....
Well each people have their own preference when it comes to mobile phones. Yes the price is too much but there are people who can afford. It's not the money that count's it's the experience. After all it's not our money to burn. So let them be. Let them buy what they want for they can afford it and happy to have it.
Noel, 15 Sep 2017Sad.. total ripoff. Even some of the top Android devices are a ripoff..the Note 8, pixel, sony... moreThink hard, calculate hard. Not a total ripoff. Yes, Apple grosses the highest profits per handset, bit don't call it a ripoff, in the form of it costing only 400 odd USD.
"The most expensive component is the 5.8inch OLED panel manufactured by Samsung. Its price is $80 per unit which is way higher than any other part. The NAND memory, acquired from Toshiba is $45 for 256 GB. The 3 GB RAM is half - only $24."
Per UNIT. And that makes a HUGE difference because Apple isn't buying components per unit baby...Apple buys per millions of units, hence the price will be lower than that unitary price baby...
OLED panel will be probably 50-55, NAND will be 30, RAM 17-18 and so on. Probably the cost of production will be around 250-270 dollars or so. And they charge you 1000 bucks in USA but 1200-1300 euro (1400-1500 dollars) in Europe hahaha big profit margins baby!!!!
L0lip0p, 15 Sep 2017Actually i want to wait for the guy who always talk big brand always overpriced their products... moreHow much upgrade was made by samsung from S6 Edge to S8. What is the big improvement. The Mi Mix was more innovative than the S8.
About quality though. If u feel Samsung or Apple has the best quality and you want the best. You have to consider two things.
1) The price
2)update and after sale services
In which case my device is to buy an IPhone X (Not the Note 8), but one year after the SHEEPS have move to the next best thing ever.

Even some of the top Android devices are a ripoff..the Note 8, pixel, sony devices, HTC etc. At least the top Chinese devices are reasonably priced..they've shown us the range of what the true price of these phones should be. Sad...top price range should be $500--$800 max."
You really have no idea how to run business? You know there's lot of people who need to get paid. Chinese devices can be that cheap because they don't have big business to run and also why you think those companies don't go worlwide? Because they don't have money to do that, also they would need to pay license feeds, which would raise product cost.
These chinese companies are very big threat for those big Android companies because they can't compete with price. They can't sell as low price as those chinese companies.
