Funny to read that Apple copied Xioami.
First MI Mix was a copy of Sharp crystal. Sharp had 3 phones with one bezel design before Mix was created.
Essential was the first notched phone. Few months later a Sharp phone came similar. If IPhone X was not notched, no brand would be using it right now.
Chinese brands have poor sales outside China/India axis. In India most can't afford paying more than 450 dollars for a phone. That is why most end up with Reddit series.
60% of Huawei sales como from Honor. Vivo and Oppo push many devices with micro USB that cost more than 450 dollars also don't have NFC.
Look at the portfolio of these brands. How many devices look like iPhone? They know that many people cannot afford iPhone, but they accept something cheaper that looks alike.

History has shown Apple will sell tens of millions of these and most adopters will happily pay for an iPhone, no matter the price hikes. Apple (and most companies for that matter) are not people's friend, they just want your money.
It's well known the iPhone has long been Apple's finance-driving product. They definitely could bring down the MSRP, but they just won't do that unless maybe there's a drop in sales

In all honesty, all flagships nowadays don't suffer from lagging. The "speed " advantage on the latest iPhones won't mean that much now but it shall help on futureproofing, it may be something after 2 years when those Android flagships receive their last updates and heavier apps start becoming a heavier weight on those SoCs. All screens are 60Hz (except for the Razr Phone), no matter how much the GPU improves, there's a graphics cap due to the refresh rate of the screen (which all flagships nowadays are able to top).
Also, most early iPhone adopters don't keep their phone for long. They want the latest and greatest so they upgrade every 12 or 24 months; it is unlikely they'll witness the speed advantage of the iPhone at all.

iPhones could become the best among the smartphones if only they bring the price lower or at least comparable to Samsung's, LG's, Sony's, and some other Chinese makers'.

Remember that chunky chin below the screen? iPhone X however doesn't have it, only a cutout on top which is half the width and nearly one third of the thickness, while the borders of the screen are symmetrical all-around. iPhone X started the trend of notches, while not being the first to introduce it, because Apple influence indicates the market, design, camera, and any other mobile component, while everyone else follows.
I still do not know why OEMs keep wasting money on hardware/software for these bokeh.
- Small sensors will never give proper shallow DOF necessary for Bokeh.
- Always part of the subject is cut by defocused area. Like hair and shoulder. Even worse when part of the background has different amount of blur compared to another part of the picture or not even any blur.
- 52 mm equivalent is far from being good. At least 200 mm is necessary.
- They require the subject to be less than 2m away from the phone.

I had also experienced few app crashes in iOS. I hadn't experienced any of the issues you said about. Please be realistic. None of my friends who are using Androids complained about lag, and all of them are using flagships.
camera still loses to Pixel 2 in still images , makes you wonder about Pixel 3 camera quality .. still Portrait shots are interesting , nice upgrade over the last gens , but to pay that much of money for slightly better portraits and high performance that even if it was exactly two times less i won't notice it at all? nah thanks apple .

I have been using my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for 5 years now. Waited every single year for Samsung to come up with something better more innovative. That never truly came. My Note 3 was a flagship at time it came out, pricing the same as the IPhone 5s was.
I still cannot get over the fact that I spent the same amount of money on the Note3 as the IPhone 5s cost that time, but 5 years later the iPhone 5s is running on the latest IOS and my Note 3 had only a single cycle of OS update.
This is a huge fact that nobody seems to be grasping at. 5 years of OS updates versus 1. Just red an article couple of days ago, that the Samsung S7 reached the end of its life cycle and will not get any updates anymore. Not to forget the Samsung S7 was also not cheap when it came out.
I always read how restrictive IOS is etc and how customisable Android is. Which is also not quite true. I have apps on my 5 year old phone I have never used but cannot get rid off as they came preinstalled. Aside from the stock android most versions come with a skin and a ton of bloat ware. I find this highly anoying.
I did consider myself an android fan, hence still using my old phone, but the above made me reconside things.
Honstley I find Apple's pricing strategy disgustingly agressive and overpriced, therefore I'm still indecisive wich phone to go for the X or XS.
Duel83, 26 Sep 2018Huawei was actually very wrong https://youtu.be/T4HdURgi_5MI bought the iPhone Xs max and the battery life does not impress me. I use my phone mainly for web browsing and my redmi note 4 lasts 40% longer than the iPhone.
I think complete too off joke. Looks no different from the last year's iPhone.
