It is funny to see all apple fans bragging that apple has made a lot of revenue. You are the ones who are paying apple and buying into their overpriced devices. It just shows how much you lack common sense.

Why do i have to carry an adapter all the time?
What would i do if i have to use headphone & charge the phone at the same time?
Don't give me that crap that no one uses their phone while charging.
They are charging 1000$ for a phone, they better give me everything that i may/may not use.

Take hint android makers. I will forever use android but... moreOn the others hand iOS is a mess right now.
Easily much more unstable than Android.
Every updates break load of phones.
So in the end as apple lover said back in iOS 5.0 days... software optimization is more important ;)

4) Notch is ugly. That's just about it. Apart from that it's a much better use of the upper bezel. What the rest do (i.e. use a ful bezel., basically forces the notification row to be lower and thus you lose valuable screen estate. I never understood those who purport that notch is bad from a functional point of view...
Sonu4678, 16 Feb 2018It's really scary that you think like that. I wonder which world do you live in?In the world that the best selling android of 2017 was WORSE than its predecessor.
Slightly better camera, practically identical performance (same ram amount, pretty much the same SoC), WORSE battery life, useless placement for the fingerprint sensor, pretty much a weaker iteration of their 2016 phone. And people *still* bought it in droves.
That is what the android world reduced to.
Most of the others had glaring problems too.
Only Apple actually improved on her 2017 iteration on pretty much everything. The roles reversed...

Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Porsche, SEAT, ÂŠkoda all belong to Volkswagen but each one is different and has different customer base.

Why would they spend 1000 $ for a brand which also sells a 100 $ phone. Status symbol also has some value to many.
Samsung needs to introduce more $1000 Galaxies, maybe one that runs with iOS. Samsung should also be the first to introduce a $1500 Note phone, lots of fanboys will buy it.

But china workers like to say have no choice only to stick to what is available and possible.
Apple bussiness are everywhere. But fost of its manufacturies are in china only.
