Bye Apple
 
Been a Apple user since beginning.

When i bought 7+ at 1488, i already felt a tinge of discomfort because it's even more expensive than my macbook air.

X came out, $1888, felt that it's crazy so I give it a skip. Saw pple say apple too ex and may reduce price, so wait 1 more year.

Now XS Max $2349, almost 1k more than my 7+, felt it's way too much. Not that I can't afford, just felt a phone that will be absolete in 2 yrs should not cost this much.

I don't want to chase this anymore. I'd reserve the budget for my next rolex.

Moving forward, I highly doubt the X series of iPhones will go obsolete in 2 years time. If you’ve played with iOS 12, you’ll see that it’s quite buttery smooth even on an iPhone 7.

If you’re tight with budget, perhaps consider the iPhone Xr.
It retains the large size and comes with a new processor.

Maybe with the next iPhone you’ll not get certain features because they are limited to new hardware. But I suppose that’s about it, unless there's a huge breakthrough.

Give it 2-3 years max. I am already feeling "old" with iPhone 7+, though it's still < 2 yrs old

On the other hand, i feel android phones are really getting buttery smooth nowadays. It used to always have at least .5 secs lag at everything

Bye. iOS 12 can really help plus the battery changing program

the pricing this time is really ridiculous, not sure how long more i can tahan with apple's antics, although not ditching iphone yet.

jetblack 16-09-2018 11:02 PM

They raised $400 last year and another $400 this year.

Can't imagine next year will be near $3000

Its a demand n supply game. If this yr demand dropped,then next rd they will b reasonable because they need to win more customers . However if demand is so gd then next yr price will b much higher.

How is your 7+ old when I'm on 6?

iOS supports iPhone 5S at that.

3 years don't make a phone obsolete. Moroever, most phones can perform the same function as a laptop nowadays.

More people leave Apple also good la, let the masses carry xiaomi huawei Samsung.

Only a niche grp carrying iPhones.

Like on the roads. The masses driving Japanese sedans. Only a niche grp driving 5 series.

If everyone driving 5 series where is the fun in that.

Moral of the story. Gotta pay to play.

but an iPhone or the experience is not a 5 Series or 3 Series.

perhaps a Vertu which has smartphone features will be, an iPhone is not.....

Sure that this time round the phone is more ex than usual~ I also feel abit bo hua to move on and gotta trade in my iphone to “subsidize” the cost so that it wont feel so painful. Anyways all the best and if you ever wan to come back to the apple side, the doors is alwayys open for ya!
