    @BlurryBiscuit You are deadly wrong! Apple most valuable asset is its logo! Apple have no history of being a high tech company like for instance an Intel, Samsung, Huawei, etc! Just name us a single chip developed by Apple!

    @Kira Kira Iam not saying that apple is not good they are good. But they are expensive. Its really upto the consumers choice. In this morden technological era, brands don't really Matter, the spec, performance and worthy price range matters. There are other mobile companies that provide better phones with outstanding specs that are much cheaper than iPhones.

    @Zain Buksh Yes, but it's well known that Apple is a "luxurious" brand or so it's considered to be.In addition, no other brand guarantees 5 years of major updates, given that Apple's prices are more justified than most Android top tiers smartphones. It's just a matter of liking, who likes iOS and wants iOS is willing to pay $800+ for the base model. I could have taken Apple over Samsung many times if that was a matter of money, but iOS is just way too restricted for my kind of usage.

    It's not Apple's fault. It's the ones who buy their products. They complain, yet still locks themselves in the ecosystem. Be smart consumers, don't let the logo fool you.

    No, apple Customers aren’t complaining. Samsung, Google, HUAWEI customers are complaining about apple.I’ve never heard an apple user complaining about apple or the price.We Apple users don’t care about the other brands but it’s funny how all of the other customers from the other brands are hating on apple. I mean, it’s not apples problem that they aren’t happy with their laggy and trash devices. Hate comes from a reason. So they must be a reason why they are hating. They are frustrated or jealous.I...
