Ben, 25 Oct 2018Yes but the thing is, the "Camrys" (Androids) you are referring to are actually the "Porsches"... moreFirst of all, we are on the Internet, you can pretend you can afford an iPhone all you want or pretend you recently switched from iPhone to android or vice versa for supporting your opinions all you want. Second of all, whatever I wrote, it¬ís not to support apple, I am actually doing what I love, refuting bad opinions from fanboys. In your case that you think android is better than iPhone, it is your opinion and I have no problem with that, I do have a problem when you think your opinion is fact. I am someone who knows better so I know both platform have their strength and weakness and everyone¬ís needs are different so for example, someone who wants to pirate entertainment will find android superior while people who pays for entertainment will much prefer iOS. Finally, if you know anything about cars, Porsche cars are more expensive than your average cars, which is what an iPhone is, android controls 85% of smartphone sells, which is what a common car like Camry would be in comparison. Also, Porsche has less features than your average Camry, just like how apple refuses to put as many features on iPhones. And yes, getting an iPhone is exclusive, people who shouldn¬ít buy one will spend much more than what they have to get one. Just ask those people who sold their kidneys for an iPhone.

I¬ím not s... moreYes but the thing is, the "Camrys" (Androids) you are referring to are actually the "Porsches" in this case. The Android phones are arguably better than iPhones and have been for some time. So in buying an iPhone you're paying Porsche money for a Camry lol.
Oh and I made the switch to Android a year ago and am loving it! I can afford an iPhone no problem, but I have a big problem with paying stupid money to a greedy company who offers average products at premium prices. They didn't get to be the world's highest valued company by accident! I refuse to be a part of that.
As for "exclusivity", that is a bit of a joke TBH. Here in Australia, every second person you see has an iPhone. They're the opposite of exclusive. Also... it's a PHONE people, not something that actually costs decent money like a car. In my book there's no such thing as "exclusivity" for a phone.
CIBERNETICO, 24 Sep 2018you talk to toyota camry vs porche i dont care what you know of cars or motors porche lmfao
CIBERNETICO, 24 Sep 2018you talk to toyota camry vs porche i dont care what you know of cars or motors I didn¬ít ask if you cared about my car knowledge. Nor did I talk to any cars. I did compare Camry to Porsche, and not porche.
For the price of two fully loaded camrys, I can get the cheapest Porsche out there. I¬ím not saying it¬ís a right comparison but the point is, there¬ís a price in exclusivity. People do want to pay a premium for Apple products. Maybe only 5% of those who can afford an iPhone and full price premium android device will actually switch between iPhone and android. (By full price premium android, it means before there are huge deals, which disqualifies note9 already as it¬ís already catering to the cost conscious consumers, as the initial full price buyers already got theirs.)

No you can't get 3 pocophones for the price of a Note 9
Pound/ ¬Äuro: (Amazon)
Xiaomi Pocophone F1 @ 330 x3= £/¬Ä990
Samsung Galaxy Note (128GB) @ £/¬Ä850
Oh, maybe you mean in U.S. Dollar$:
Xiaomi Pocophone F1 @ $400 x3= $1200
Samsung Galaxy Note (128GB) @ $930.
Nope, that doesn't work either, it must be your calculator on your iPhone, I hope Apple fix it for you with an update, otherwise you might have to upgrade to an iPhone X$ ;p
Their just selling the logo of APPLE not literally the phone HAHA
I can compare the Poco to Xs
good thing is that,I only eat apple fruits in plenty sometimes...though am addicted to baked "Pie" n will forever love it

You can also say that you can buy 3 pocophone with price of Note 9, but again If you are thinking to buy Note 9 you want more than mediocre product in first place. So i don't think even ten pocophone would work :D

Secondly, if a phone which is cheaper that comes with the usual standard stuff (3.5mm jack etc) which iPhone nowadays lacked, people will go for it if they use wired headphones a lot / need memory expansion for physical backup.
Sometimes in life, you need to look from another angle.
[deleted post]Why would i buy many mediocre products If i can buy one great product which actually makes me happy?
That's like saying, why would i buy expensive LG real OLED tv because with that price i could buy 3-4 mediocre TV's in same size.
Only competitive phone for these new iPhones in the market is Note 9 and it cost lot too.
ProJames, 23 Sep 2018The worst is that in poorer countries, such phones costs even more than in developed countries... moreFor me it is pretty simple : "I'll never buy an IPhone", period. I was given one three years ago, I sold it just after a week of using it.
Right now I'm still using my 5years old Samsung galaxy S4 and I've saved enough money to buy a new flagship, but I've decided to wait for the Galaxy S10 to see if it brings enough significant improvements, otherwise I'll just get whichever will be better between the Note 9, Mate 20 Pro or Nokia 9.

I know even hardcore Apple fans that are now put off by those prices.
Apple does care a lot about money and they did made less profit by rising prices waaay too high. They already see it, therefore you see so-called budget options.
