If Apple's problems include not being able to release 5G iPhones in September 2019 they will have another disastrous year of falling sales.
Well, If you're prepared to pay over a £1000 each year for a fashionable item that will have no value in the future and is technically obsolete (adoption of new technologies such as 5G), before you've finished paying for it (24 month contracts etc.), that says it all really. You're either to rich to care or too stupid to realise that you are throwing away money for attention from your peers. but if that's what makes you happy, go for it... Just make sure you can pay your bills and feed your kids! 😂 😂 😂 Seriously though...

You threw away an S4 because the port was damaged, rather than just replace the port on one of the easiest-to-repair phones every created? Doesn't look like you've earnt the stripes to even engage in this argument

It was fixed really quickly and most other flagship also had issues when first released. Which were also fixed after a few updates. That's why u are never taken seriously anymore. And everyone has a choice if they want to purchase something cheap or expensive and are not forced to buy anything. Keep trolling if that brings u happiness :D

Their customer service is uphauling at so many levels, with complete disregard for consumer protection laws and Xiaomi's own commitments.
It's a good decision. Apple can cheat and lie as much as they want back home in America, but not here in the EU, against European customers. Enough.

There is LITERALLY no point in arguing with someone who:
1. Tries to defend Apple for giving a 5W charger by saying "fast charging is not safe" or any other reason.
2. Tries to defend Apple removing the dongle by saying "it's just a few bucks, you can spend that much after spending a grand on a phone, no big deal" or any other reason.
Ps. As I said, no arguing, but IMO you should reconsider all of your points that you mentioned.
dexterouz, 19 Jan 2019Hehe. I love such type of consumers. They are great for the company :DXiaomi have opened it largest store in France and what was unique to Apple queuing for the store to open.
Gsmarena reviews aside some of the Xiaomi model cost a third of an IPhone
More still 10 years after iPhone launch still no memory expansion, Xiaomi 64Gb with upper and flagship specs
Those who state that the issue is affordability somebody like me do research and chose not to buy an IPhone. The people who complain that iPhone prices are too high would be those who want one.
Again having 5 or 6 year ios is only software, it does change the physical components of the phone
When Apple went from 4 inch display (iPhone 5) to 4.7 inch ( iPhone 6) except for the non phone related Apple pay) of you were on a 2 year contract you signed on for to the same phone with a larger display

All the major patented work has already been done and filed
IOS is a licenced patented Nokia construct. Apple pay Nokia
Apple has again lost an appeal to VirnetX do owes need $500 million incorporated this tech into Facetime.
Qualcomm owns 5G modem tech Apple could use Intel which is slower
Apples 2018 iPhone appears to also inc Qualcomm patented technology, Qualcomm did not include these model so was prevented to add them, It mean that these are not included in any court case but imo Apple would be penalised even more if 2019 iPhone included them. Apple 5G launch may be delayed until 2020 if not resolved soon

The lightning port was released when microUSB was a thing. MicroUSB was the worst port in the history of ports! I had to throw my Galaxy S4 to the bin because the port was damaged. I have thrown so many microUSBs to the bin as they wouldn't make good contact! I never had this problem with lightning plus it was reversible! Google it and you will see that USB C was partly developed by apple! I honestly never had a problem with a lightning cable failing! Honest!
Most people have insurance on their phones in the west! If a note 9 falls and breaks it will probably need 300 to replace the screen. So it's not just apple. Any flagship is expensive to repair.
Bent ipads are not as common as you think and 100% will get replaced! You have no idea how good the customer service is! I had an iphone 5S replaced after 23 months because i dropped it and it had a SINGLE dead pixel. I had an iPad Air 2 replaced because the power button was a bit sticky. Meanwhile I had to send my LG G3 to LG via post to get the motherboard replaced, the whole thing took 3 weeks and I had to argue with them on the phone about it being covered warranty.
What's wrong with the names? Retina, Lightning etc?
Xiaomi's naming scheme is all a copy of Apple models! Plus all the chinese brands label everything AI. LOL. Infinity display? Turbo mode? haha come on now.
A 5W charger is safer for the battery. Plus you can buy a 10W one on amazon for 3 pounds. So this argument is not valid. You have to realise that people, like you, are on the look out for problems related to apple products to gain publicity. A fast charger is a higher risk product.
If you can afford a £1000 phone i'm sure you can buy a £7 adapter.
Apple is the only company to support phones that are 5 years old and actually improve their performance. My iphone 5s is faster with ios12 and faster than my old S7 edge!
You need to educate yourself about the throttling thing. It is an option in the settings! Optional. Like on you laptop! My iPhone 7 plus after 17 months has 91% capacity!
What are the serious bugs you are talking about that take months to solve? the issue with iphones not showing the charging icon when locked? Which took them 4 days to fix?
Last time I checked the latest samsung flagships had an issue with making calls!!! haha
also the Huawei Mate 20 Pro which is also £1000 even though they get HEAVILY discounted cos come on they are a chinese brand had issues with the displays.
Get real man. Just because it's apple you have to bush!
The pixels, the galaxies, the huaweis all have problems but people only focus on apple cos of the publicity it would get them.
