Anonymous, 24 Oct 2017I will pay 1000$ for Sony flagship phone only. Samsung? iPhone? Never again.There is no phone worth 1000 dollars unless is covered in precious metals period
That is very worrying numbers, people, especially iPhone followers must stop paying ridiculous money for smartphones, after all it just smarthpone, not powerful computing device who can give you everything

Another hint would be most of the readers to this website are from the same cry baby country. Not as big as China but about just as many people!

And manufacturing cost has not gone up, on the contrary. There are less and less innovations so they are spending even less. Especially Apple who sells basically the same phone every year.
That means mankind went 7% dumber.
Normally, average price of mobile phones should have sunk , just like laptops, lcd tv's, prices went down year by year after introduction....
Anonymous, 24 Oct 2017I will pay 1000$ for Sony flagship phone only. Samsung? iPhone? Never again.Am with you. The only phone that is optimized to the max but with less market share. The only phone that can compete with iPhone in duration of support but got less market share.

How dare prices go up grrrrrrr hahaha, what a bunch of babies who want everything for 20% less than what it costs to make.

And they will CONTINUE to rise, as long as people are stupid enough to overpay for minor advances (faster processors, less bezels, brighter displays etc).
Processor speeds, given the apps people run on them, have been fast enough for the past 3-4 years.
AnonD-707263, 24 Oct 2017what ? there's so many Android flagships with a higher MSRP than last generationWell other companies don't have only flagship phones to like chewed apple does.
Even there so called cheaper versions they give out are just old flagship model in a plastic frame.
Sorry for spam. I have no clue how to quote 2 replay's in here.
Anonymous, 24 Oct 2017LOL, sorry, but common sense would disagree. Poor countries don't make enough difference, so i... moreChina has over billion people living there. Even if 1% of them are super rich it's enough market.
I live in Baltic's and in here our minimum is 420 euro. But we see Lambos on the street and other luxury cars and yacht and so on. People will get a loan and buy beautiful things to make them feel better. Leash or loan makes no difference. I dont have that mentality that i need to have nice things that have a placebo effect of high cost so must be quality. I got my self a 90 euro Chinese phone that have decent specs for 5.5 inch phone to have 1080x1770 screen with 3GB ram. Well it plays games nice to. Well at least games i see a point to play on a handheld device. Like nfs no limits and Sky Force(Fun game i remember to have played it on some amusement parks coin games with 2 buttons and joystick.)
I dont have even motion sickness when i am in a car and watch the screen. I had with Lumia 830.
I read some local news some time ago back like half a year or so that average price have dropped a lot. But well i dont think it's strange as there you can just make up a brand name and buy hardware from some companies from Asia and let some other company in Asia to fabricate it to a device. Pay for licence and hope for profit. Look at how Xiaomi have rised. 5 years ago who know anything about them ?
ME, 24 Oct 2017All phones got cheaper but iPhone. what ? there's so many Android flagships with a higher MSRP than last generation
Anonymous, 24 Oct 2017Well see the article? We are all affected by how other people chose to spend their money. If t... moreSo, you are saying others should not buy what pleases them or make them feel good because it affects you? Way to think of yourself as the center of the universe. I don't see people bitching about stuff that you like they don't care about. This is the problem with humans in general, it's usually a one way street, and that one way street is "me." How about you continue to buy what you like and what pleases you, and others will do the same for them.
