Vegetaholic, 16 Oct 2020What a peace of crap is Apple, no chargers no headphones, over 1000 dollar prices, carbon free... moreSame old hideous notch, same old hideous grid of icons on the homescreen... looks extremely inelegant and low class. Even Apple themselves are highly ashamed of that notch.
That's why they keep showing pictures of their iphones with wallpapers that black out the top of the screen to hide the ugly putrid notch that makes the phone's bezel look grossly asymmetrical. Such incompetent amateurs!
I don't understand how people justify iPhone prices, they haven't brought anything new for 3 years, except cosmetic changes, the software is still the same and complicated, with a thousand applications, sms codes, complications about inserting music, in 2020 you can't click and pick up the song from the phone you want for the ringtone, this is sadly outrageous;) this may be a phone for the US market ok, but for people who want simplicity this is too much money for all this nonsense, while android has progressed in all fields, and better for use
What a peace of crap is Apple, no chargers no headphones, over 1000 dollar prices, carbon free my ass, more like cost free, more money for Apple and more spending for you. How can anyone buy this company phones is a mystery to me

Why are you still on the same subject while i already yesterday explained this price difference thing? Looks like you are just trolling.
https://thenextweb.com/apple/2012/09/28/when-apples-iphone-5-goes-abroad-italy-expensive-hong-kong-cheapest/ ” When Apple’s iPhone 5 goes abroad, Italy is most expensive, Hong Kong the cheapest” this is from 2012 already.
” Setteb.it broke down the pricing across 25 different localized Apple Online Stores, including applicable VAT and other taxes. After 21 percent tax in Italy, the 64GB iPhone 5 cost €949 ($1,226), compared to an estimate of €715 ($924) in the US after tax and €720 in Hong Kong. Though Hong Kong has in years past had the cheapest overall iPhone price worldwide because it doesn’t charge additional taxes, this year, its price has been raised above that of the US.”
Italy have very high tax (21%), that’s why it’s so expensive.
And you talked about japan, well they have only 10% tax, which is lowest from where you can get iPhone, which is over half less than Italy which you were talking about.
” they seem to be the highest in Italy at the same time lowest in Japan, that's weird.”
No it’s not weird like i said different countries have different Tax, and Italy have very high one and Japan have lowest from the countries you can buy iPhone.
tehyadro, 15 Oct 2020Yes you are right. I noticed that with Germany and Italy,in Italy prices were higher. Well... moreOutside of its home market, they seem to be the highest in Italy at the same time lowest in Japan, that's weird. For comparison, it's about $710 in Japan while $980 in Italy, for the 12 mini, that's a difference of $270 or about 38% increase from Japanese prices, and in India and US, the Pro Max is $2200 in India for the top end version while just being $1300 in the US for same configuration, that's a difference of $900, how ridiculous is that ? What can I say anymore, greedy Apple, once again
L.O.R.D, 14 Oct 2020What's worse is that the prices even outside US aren't uniformly high, the disparity... moreYes you are right.
I noticed that with Germany and Italy,in Italy prices were higher.
Well their year by year sales show how much support iphone is getting.
JDK, 15 Oct 2020And there is always a option to insert a password when your mask is on(for Face ID).Forget it boy.
iOS can only dream about being as advanced as Android.
lol it took them 10 years to deliver basic widgets and app drawer all of which are still half baked and full of bugs.
Even budget devices are embarrassing iOS in terms of software features and ease of use.
3rd party apps are crashing more on iOS than Android. I wonder why? Maybe coz Android is simply more optimized than iOS.
All the Optimization PR campaign from Apple has been badly exposed in the real world.
Handicapped ecosystem of iOS will never be as polished as Android.
MrDang, 14 Oct 2020This is why it still has the bezels, duh iPhone 5 scored 6 in iFixIt, the same with current... moreAre you being serious? Look at the iphone 5's screen bezels vs the 12 and watch the videos in yt. The 12 series has even thinner bezels than the iphone 11 pros because of new panels. That's why they can make the phone thinner. The displays are flat now instead of curved from last year. You'll be digging on thinner glass.
i am an android fan but will hate on android oems more once they copy the squarish sides from way back iphone 4. i am still not convinced though by apple's reason for not including a power brick, which as well will be copied by android oems.
[deleted post]Judging from the time you took to respond to my comment, it's clear that you really haven't asked any of your elders if they had fingerprint problems.
The elders that YOU know aren't the only ones that matter.
That's proof that fingerprints degrade from aging.
iOS Never Again, 15 Oct 2020There is always and option to insert pin code or pattern. Ever heard of glove mode? And there is always a option to insert a password when your mask is on(for Face ID).
DrummerAJL, 14 Oct 2020Huawei has a punchhole with 3d face unlocking, and I have had zero problems with samsung under... morea super wide punch-hole that's just as big as the notch on iPhones.
Good luck using the ultrasonic fingerprint scanner with gloves on. Or just stick to your bare hands in winter.
[deleted post]as you grow older,(like not 2 years but many years), it gets harder and harder to use a fingerprint sensor. It's a problem that many elderly have.
JDK, 15 Oct 2020unrealistic ideas, as seen from android fans like these.Lol it was a joke.
Clearly iPhone fanbbboyz can't argue with logic neither can they understand jokes.
Grow a sense of humor.

as apparent here. What about during winters when your always wearing gloves? Or when it is raining? Or how do you deal with fingerprint aging(as you get older)?
Although most of those problems happen less, there are no viable solutions to those yet, but face id's problems of hats and masks can eventually be solved.
All you try to do is find apple's every fault.
Interesting to see android users call apple greedy when apple devices are the same price this year while their android manufacturers shot up over $1000 mark , while their fan base foolishly give excuses for the hike being 5g and SD865, Apple is giving us 5G and A14 which is more powerful than anything android has to offer till next year lmao for the same price, Choke on that boys
