No such thing as entery level Iphone $500 LOL!!!! Try $200
sa11oum, 27 Apr 2018Your point? $40,000 is low end in the world of Mercedes and BMW as well. Apple phones can best be compared to a cheap Suzuki...all because of their pathetic iOS
AnonD-141749, 27 Apr 2018When did 550 dollars become entry level...ohh its a apple right😁😁😁Man even that basic phone will cost 800+ and the other will be 1000 and 1500 apple way of thinking forward :-)
sa11oum, 27 Apr 2018Your point? $40,000 is low end in the world of Mercedes and BMW as well. Man apple is no mercedes or BMW.
And car cost much more.
Vertu was the phone which could be bentley mercedes ferrari or lamborghini and so.
Apple is just expensive china made toy or people who dont know what to do with the money.
And their budget phone will cost 800+
Its a useless gimmick.
Meh, 3D Touch is merely restricting ancient android functions to the iPhone 6S and later. Literally EVERYTHING it offers is doable without specialized hardware, including:
- 3D touch keyboard to start scrolling your cursor: that's simply an option in keyboard apps like GBoard, no nonsense 3D touch required.
- App shortcuts: that's simply a short press and hold on the home screen launcher icon.
- Peak and pop: That's merely floating windows that's been on Android since forever.
It's just another gimmick crapple is using to justify milking their iSheep to the last drop...and the sheeple love it.
Anonymous, 27 Apr 2018Yep 600$ is low end in Apple world!Your point? $40,000 is low end in the world of Mercedes and BMW as well.
I use 3D Touch a lot, especially for placing the cursor around when using the keyboard. I would be okay with not having it though, especially on a 6.1" device that's rumored to be only 549$.
.alpha, 27 Apr 2018I use 3D Touch at least a couple hundred times a day. It is to useful especially the cursor functionI also use 3D touch at least a hundred times a day. For app shortcuts, settings shortcuts, for switching apps, quickly deleting single picture in photo app etc. It's a very useful feature that I would miss a lot if they'd get rid of it in future iPhones.
LG Superfan, 27 Apr 2018I dont think price will be lower than $600Yep 600$ is low end in Apple world!

Akinaro, 27 Apr 2018No wonder, that 3D touch can be obtained just by software tweak that will detect touched area,... moreNot all people have the same finger size and dont use the same fingers all the time.
No wonder, that 3D touch can be obtained just by software tweak that will detect touched area, after all our fingers are not made from brick and when we touch screen harder we increase touched surface area, most of time even in apple system it use just two stages: normal touch and hard touch for additional features.
Just implement it to system and tell that app devs and they will use it without any useless hardware. Actually some apps have that already, especially in settings when you just tap for longer on something and popup will show up that tell you what that setting doing.
And "magic-ultra-fancy" vibrations in that 3D touch? Who need that...
Tim is scared now, 27 Apr 2018Long touch is based on timed press. i.e. Press 3 secs trigger function 1. Continue to press 2... moreI find the force touch on my iPhone 7 less likable than the long press on my 3T, that's all
With a price like that, that's no entry level nothing.
Increasing the price is a well known "feature" for iphones. Some apple customers love the increase price feature and use it daily.
Bozzor, 27 Apr 2018I use an iPhone 8 and am a big fan of 3D-Touch to quickly glance a message or access most used... moreIts actually is the reverse of it lol
Apple tried to promote really hard a useless feature nobody want to use .
If the touch module is in the glass, won't it effect the touchscreen when the screen crack
And, the "touchless gesture" i guess it something similar to the mutual capacitance touchscreen, where it can detect finger hovering or pointing on the glass,
