You gonna rely on some random tiktok videos?
It's the top brand in several countries Coz it provides high quality products at cheap prices.

I'm not bashing at 5G, it's the future. I'm just saying it's not justifiable yet and the prices are high.
Plus, the network operators are charging big amounts of money for data. So, you do want superfast 5G when you have to pay a fortune for more data?
They are still greedy about giving us more monthly data. We'll need much more Gigs per month but without raising the prices. I don't see that happen so fast...
Troy , 21 Aug 2020All the money Apple makes off of it's customers for those iPhones they are worried about ... more85-135 dollars on bill of material represents more than 250-300 in consumer price. iPhone does not cost 1000 to be made, i think it’s around 380/450 for the pros. But there are MANY other costs envolved. And the profit needs to be there also, otherwise there are no 5 years updates

The fact that some people are happy to use an iPhone 6S or 2016 SE for the last 5 years as they still continue to get support and have no reason to leave but rather to buy into services offered is the reason why the brand such a high valuation. There is an ecosystem, there is brand loyalty and there is consistency, not a single android manufacturer has got all of that down like Apple.

Not many people need 5G (actually huge majority of consumers don't care about 5G at all), so companies should continue to make 4G only flagships. For those who need 5G (I can't imagine how they lived just a couple of years ago when 5G didn't existed) companies can make 1 model and make it very expensive ( if hardware for 5G doesn't allow to make phone more or less affordable) .

Several of my friends own a Poco F1 and has reported multiple issues. One is display ghost touch. Mi phone quality is not even across the board. Only once MIUI gets better to some extent then I'll consider a Poco F2 Pro. At least it's not realme.
But hey Xiaomi also steals personal data. Look up the fingerprint sensor debacle on the K20 Pro and Poco F2 Pro where optical fingerprint sensor may take a photo of your face.

If you get a good phone, nice ! But, if not, be prepared to deal with stutters, bugs and setting that reset to default with every software update.

Switching battery designs may mean lower quality but we'll see for ourselves.
[deleted post]Seen a TikTok video of Redmi K30 Ultra and Mi 10 Ultra bought straight from China and has a serious software glitch. Phone just freezes completely. In the K30 Ultra, popup camera won't retract. That's you call minimum compromise but OK.

I don’t get why so many people are bashing 5G, in these comments. Yes, it’s a new technology and the coverage is still limited, but the advantages are undeniable, coverage will expand rapidly and the speeds will also increase (just like they did with 3G and 4G).
[deleted post]But still the iFans will que up for it saying it's the most innovative phone Apple has produced as they look round for a power socket to charge the smaller battery with.
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2020Good on Apple for bringing manufacturing costs down, but they're probably not going to lo... moreIf you read the article, you would know that cost savings elsewhere are to try to offset some or all of the ~$85 it costs to add sub-6 5G, and ~$135 it costs to add mm-wave 5G. Otherwise prices might jump as severely as Samsung's, OnePlus's, Huawei's, etc. have in the last couple of years. Of course reading anything Apple-related objectively would hamper one's ability to troll these comment boards.
First Samsung with the 1000usd plastic phone now Apple with the "worse" battery. Then Huawei is banned. Great now I have to learn to root Xiaomi, unless they will get banned as well.
For people who think Xiaomi's prices are too high lately...A graphene battery with dedicated 120W superfast charger they introduced last week....Apple would charge $500 just for that..;)

As if whatever the hell they're using right now aren't already cheap enough?
