Walter C. Dornez, 21 Jul 2018So these money hungry companies still manufacture most of their inventory on their own? I'm no... moreDont know what you means.
But for example apple is made only by Foxconn.
Try to imagine how much could cost old apple 4 made by USA within USA borders where labourer earns 10-12 dollars per hour.
Now try to imagine that same work at foxconn does chinese people for 0,20 eurocents a day.
Thats what i call an unstopable greed for money.
Now you know why i dont support brands like theses.
CptPower, 20 Jul 2018Man Foxconn is largest companny in world which making phones but they make like 40% of total p... moreSo these money hungry companies still manufacture most of their inventory on their own? I'm not trying to make an argument, but it kinda seems like that
Walter C. Dornez, 18 Jul 2018Doesn't everybody use Foxconn?Man Foxconn is largest companny in world which making phones but they make like 40% of total phones, So 4 out of 10 or 40 out of 100 are made at Foxconn anywhere in the world because Foxconn have its manufacturies everywhere.
But no not everything is Foxcon made.
But most of the well known brands are made there Like Apple, Nokia, Half of Sony phones, Like 1/3 of Samsung phones etc.
Walter C. Dornez, 17 Jul 2018It's funny how you say opinion and most of what you said are facts. I suppose the reasons for ... moreWell yes opinion fact but you knew wghat i am means.
I am fromc entral europe from tiny country known as slovakia which is like 250 km from south to north and about 500 from east to west.
And yes they can but why they can?
These so called leaders of the market are ruled by hubger for money and power and thus are greedy.
At Foxcon in china at Zhen Hou largest mobile phone factory in world where working more people than the global population of my country. These people earn 0,20 euro cents a day.
Where american labourer earns 10-12 dollars per hour.
Fact is i would never support or fuel the greed because the greed is a sin and those who are responsible are SINNERS..
Just for example apple X made by xiaomi would cost no more than 600 dollars brand new just released with all its cilliling it have.
On the other hand the Mi8 Explorer as it is made by apple would have a sticker or pricetag of 1200 plus. Just because apple.
CptPower, 16 Jul 2018Thanks for understanding with me. My point is right. Xiaomi maybe not earn much on every d... moreIt's funny how you say opinion and most of what you said are facts. I suppose the reasons for both of those phones having a huge price is...well because they can. Remember, main market for them is US, where I live. The only flagship killers you'll see here are OnePlus. And the only budget you'll see are Moto phones
Before making decision to upgrade to Developer ROM, please watch this benchmark test https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTi5Nj300F4
Remember, upgrade to developer ROM will erase all your data in internal memory, so do backup first!
Walter C. Dornez, 14 Jul 2018I get what you're saying, but again, it's not that black and white. It would be nice to see wh... moreThanks for understanding with me.
My point is right.
Xiaomi maybe not earn much on every device because manufacturing and selling price is like maybe 25%-50% difference where phones from companies like Apple or Samsung have this difference of 200-400%.
Where for example apple X cost 369 dollars to make so its 304 euros but sells for 1500.
S9+ cost 379 dollars to make so its 312 euros but sells for 1200.
The manufacturing proceses are alike and many brands are made only by foxconn largest phone maker in the world doing like 40% of all phones ever created.
Most of the phones are made in china anyway to save on expenses.
Just for example try to guess how much would cost 10 years old Iphone 4 when it will be make within the borders of USA where a basic labourer earns more than a 10 dollars a hour. I can tell you much over 3000.
Thus to my opinion.
CptPower, 11 Jul 2018Me too. If for example Xiaomi can make equaly same device like S9+ and it will sells for 500... moreI get what you're saying, but again, it's not that black and white. It would be nice to see where this extra money is going to. Perhaps we shall see next year if the phones are worth the price. I personally hope they are.
Walter C. Dornez, 10 Jul 2018Dude, I was agreeing with you. That's why I put so much in quotesMe too.
If for example Xiaomi can make equaly same device like S9+ and it will sells for 500 euros and make profit why Samsung cant sells S9+ for 500 euros.
If brand new S7 edge 2 years ago costed 1000 and now can be bought for 350 and Samsung still makes profit why it was necessary to put a 1000 price tag?
All i am asking for.
Walter C. Dornez, 08 Jul 2018I suppose it's the other things in a phone that give it that price tag. Performance is of cour... moreMan latest and greatest lets see.
Mi8 SE offers best screen available its amoled and cost 270.
About performance Apple X cost 1500 and offers fastest CPU right at the moment but as i said before if my Moto X for 385 now 270 can be bought run same app maybe a second or 2 slower i wont care.
About the camera you know a phone is phone camera is camera. Even a Nikon for 150 euros can make and take much betterr pictures than best camera phone available at the moment. I know that people are very lazy to carry 2 devices when the go hollidays or vacation but fact is even the cheapest DSLR, on the market can make better photos than P20 pro S9+ or Apple X. For example Nikon D3400
Well and about the rest. Almost every phone is made dual sim nowdays one using card for prive numbers and the others for work.
Waterproof should be useful for a Tarzans living in rainforcest clever people wont take phone for swimming and calling durring a heavy rain with someoe is also not very vise idea.
Everything you name dont have a price tag of 1000+.
All thats known as company expenses is jjust a greed for money.
Trust me i know what i am talking about.
CptPower, 07 Jul 2018I dont think so. The phone is outstanding. No need to havuing phone for 1000 if a 300 eur ph... moreI suppose it's the other things in a phone that give it that price tag. Performance is of course one, but cheaper models have caught up. So now, it's the design and features that are "supposed to justify a 1k price tag". Stuff like a way better camera, dual sim, waterproof, the best screens, the "latest and greatest" the company has to offer. And if indeed you're not impressed with the latest and greatest, well, your decision should be cut out for you
Walter C. Dornez, 07 Jul 2018The skin of Samsung phones is the reason for lag problems, battery drain, and late updates. Wh... moreI dont know man but i thinkSamsung is company which should d something othervise they wont keep the first place for long.
Walter C. Dornez, 06 Jul 2018Meh, I suppose the skin is to blame for that I dont think so. The phone is outstanding.
No need to havuing phone for 1000 if a 300 eur phone can do same tricks apart is 0,5 sec slower when loading same app than 1000 eur phone.
CptPower, 06 Jul 2018??? What do you mean???The skin of Samsung phones is the reason for lag problems, battery drain, and late updates. Whenever a new version of Android is downloaded, the phone tries to keep up with the new features and faster performance
Walter C. Dornez, 06 Jul 2018Meh, I suppose the skin is to blame for that ??? What do you mean???
