huh? we all know XS and XS MAX sales were piss poor... unless they are talking about XR here.
I think that Apple is dreaming... because even iPhone XS sales were actually really underwhelming, so underwhelming that they decided to stop reporting how much phones they sold.
And this will be even more expensive, and we already know it will be ugly aswell. Good luck with that Apple.
A few years back, they'll expect something like 15% sales growth over previous model. But that's not the case right now. They'll pursue bigger profit margin while getting similar sales number, but still get profit growth on their YoY report.
Well if i can say for my self i am glad i upgraded to android in 2014 after 3 months of use Iphone 6.
Had many phones in my life good or bad but not even a single device tried to be more clever than i am.
Then i bought my Iphone 6 and sold it after 3 months of use when all my patience went completely mad.
Funny it wont even out looks like Huawei Mate 20 pro copycat and have tons of cons and just some pros.
I dont think people will buy it because the price is too high for a china made phone with USA company logo on it.
Apple/Iphone = Buying Appearances...
Windows/Android = Buying Performance...
AnonD-819322, 27 Jul 2019The 11S will come after the 11, not the 12, everyone seems to get this wrong...Right. Thanks for the correction.
Berserker, 26 Jul 2019If they launch the iphone 11 with 5g modem I'm afraid to imagine how low iphone 12 is gonna sell. The 11S will come after the 11, not the 12, everyone seems to get this wrong...
Galaxy Note 10 Pro, 26 Jul 2019In my place comparable iPhone XS Max 512 GB sells at $2000(with some $250 discounts as well) ... moreI would never buy an iphone from your place. I would order one online to get it cheaper if I lived where u are. Just in same way way nobody would spend 2000 on any phone. People can also choose to get them on contract and pay installments and after 2 years then upgrade to newer models. And prices same as other highend android phones.

While Note 9 buyer can keep changing his mobiles almost every other year paying $300-$500 for flagship spec. While iPhone XS Max buyer has to hold 4 years to realise similar value losing out all new features available in the newer model due to upfront huge investment!! Many people get bored after 18 months with the same Mobile......iPhone users need to keep them for 5 years and again pain of investing huge money....
Berserker, 26 Jul 2019Right, but i wasn't clear enough. My point was that for example my friend just moved to a new ... moreOverpriced is only seen by people who don't really know the benefits of iphones. You do have similarities with your friend. He doesn't seem to know much about iphones either. There's are 2 eco systems. People choose the eco system they prefer. Android ecosystem has many phones to choose from. Cheap midrange or iphone like price highend. Several years ago there were lesser brands and prices seemed more even. Now there's so many brands and prices are super cheap to expensive on android. But apple isn't competing with these brands. They have their own ecosystem. Every year iphones do get improved. Hardware wise. Design wise is subjective. So each year prices could go up slightly. Once the cheaper android brands are more established then u will see their prices slowly go up too. Such as one plus for example. It's a business at end of day. Alot of iphone users don't ditch their devices every year for iphones slightly improved. They do hold on longer to iphones than android brands. Yes there are some android brands which have good build quality and people would keep hold of those phones a little longer too
There are enough mad people to stuck with their 4G mobile after paying $1500 while rest of the world to have 5G in 2020!! Good luck to those...
kalel, 25 Jul 2019It's all about affordability. Many can purchase all the above with an xs max. If your an andro... moreRight, but i wasn't clear enough. My point was that for example my friend just moved to a new apartment, he dosent have nieder pc, laptop or a tv because his budget is low, and he was so opsessed with the new iphone. He dosent even know what eco sistem is and what are the benefits of owning apple products. And that my friend is the sad part. Huge part of the apple fanboys are defending the brand and justifying the overpriced products without actualy owning them,or like my other friend argues every time that even iphone 7 is better than huawei mate 20 pro but he asks me every time to take selfie with my phone.
If they launch the iphone 11 with 5g modem I'm afraid to imagine how low iphone 12 is gonna sell.
Question is, how 11R will sell given they already have plans to charge more for it. XR was a bit over 800Â€. My prediction is, if they'll charge more for 11R than they have for XR, it won't sell well. You need to settle at some price point for the range, you can't just frigging increase it with every release. Coz guess what, people's paychecks also don't just increase every year for no reason...
