    Galaxy S8 is available for £520 from Amazon UK. Not a clearance sale.
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B06XYMCMHD/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1514935426&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=galaxy+s8&dpPl=1&dpID=418vgwE+yJL&ref=plSrch

    IphoneX is £999.

    You do realise that only 12 left in stock can mean they get are selling well and are awaiting new stock.

    Did it die or did it just need a new battery?

    My point was that the note 8 does everything the iPhone X does plus a lot more and is cheaper. It's not that hard to comprehend; there is absolutely nothing the iPhone X has over the note unless you count the useless Animojis. Samsung even has the decency to throw in a fast charger in the box rather than advertising a feature you need to shell out more dollars for when you've already paid 1k for a device... Ridiculous.

    How dare anyone question Apple's impeccable pricing strategy!

    I’d be surprised if Apple plans on selling more than 65 million iPhone X this year. There are two other near-flagship models that should sell another 90 million or so. Along with another 70 million SE/6/6S/7 and it makes for a great year.

    I’ll go on record now, based on my model. For Q1FY2018:

    80 million iPhone units sold
    65 billion iPhone revenue
    90 billion total revenue

    For FY2018:
    225 million iPhone units sold
    175 billion iPhone revenue
    270 billion total revenue

    It’s not all about price. If it were, Apple wouldn’t be selling 200+ million units per year, right?

    You can call them overpriced if you like, but things are worth exactly as much as people are willing to pay for them. If they were truly overpriced, people wouldn’t be buying them.

    The iPhone X may be overpriced for you, but that isn’t relevant to the 30-40 million buyers who have already paid the price Apple’s charging. Or to the maybe 25-35 million who will also buy it over the next 9 months.

    I know several people including me that got the X and returned it a few days later. Phone is good but not great. Size really matters coming from a Plus. Not worth the price in my opinion.

    iPhone X was simple introduced to maximize revenue. Not to replace the current phone lines, but to gather more money from some hardcore fans. Smart phones doesn't make sense above 600USD, in my opinion.

    Unless the next phones boast much more battery life, we are staying put. Diminishing returns.

    Lol at how many get so emotional and have tied their own self worth to a cell phone and consumer electronics company that doesn’t give one iota about them.

    Funny how many people say the notch seems to disappear after use. I saw some IPhone Xs in the wild and all I could see was the notch. I think we could see it from outer space. Sorry but I just dislike that design so much.

    It is about the value proposition and it simply isn't there. The fact that some people are willing to pay for it doesn't mean the value is there, especially as this entire thread is about the fact that Apple likely sold tens of millions units less than expected. Remember when people were saying iPhone x would be sold out until 2018? Didn't happen. By your logic, Apple tripled the price and a few die hards still purchased it, the price would be justified. It is asinine for any consumer to pay a heavy premium for dated technology that doesn't even have gigabit LTE (4x4 MIMO).

    You've ignored everyone in this thread who disagreed with you. I guess you can't support anything you've said when your ideas are minimally challenged.

    Ironic for a JediZenMaster!

    Great, now there are free capacities for a just wider X Plus in Spring. No, not a Plus Plus in this current Plus body.

    LOL at so many people who have no life and want to critique a purchase that someone makes with their hard earned money.

    Boy oh boy you must think people who work 40 hours a week come from miles around to get your approval for a purchase.

    As if your opinion actually is going to effect people and what they choose to buy. Worry about your own wallet.

    This Apple stuff is like a religion. I didn't even know. Almost like a political party...

    For some but it seems lately people are trying to be very judgmental.

    However judgement works only if the person it’s direct at cares. I don’t care therefore it doesn’t work on me.

    Don’t mistake rumor for fact. Tens of millions less than who expected? Not Apple, that’s for sure.

    Apple forecasted record revenue and they never adjusted that guidance. ASP last year was about $650, the quarter just ended will have ASP at over $800. That will be due to the strength of X sales. Estimates are 30-40 million sold last quarter. That proves the value proposition is absolutely in effect, which you claim is not there.

    I was referring to the original Apple
    iPhone being the only phone they made. Not all smartphones in general. I figured that was assumed since we are talking Apple here. Your statement about tech going down in price is fine but as tech keeps improving price will go up then balance out and inflation is real. Period. I don’t think Apple is overly concerned about how many people buy the X. They still have the 6s, 7 and 8 series as well as an SE version. The X is a premium product for the consumer who wants the best of the best in tech and experience.

    You can't rationalize wasting $1000 on a vanity item like a cell phone. It's obscene.

    And you just KNOW that there are people who bought this thing who are up to their eyeballs in credit card debt and have no savings.

    Hell, I bet that is the target audience for iPhones these days.
    --- Post Merged, Jan 2, 2018 ---
    Neither are 99% of the people buying this phone. Many are 20-somethings drowning in student debt and credit card debt who barely have a pot to piss in but feel the need to buy the latest and greatest iPhone every 2 years.

    People have their priorities ass backwards these days and tech companies are happily suckering them like the suckers they are.

    Sounds like you really wish iPhone X was cheaper. Also where do you get off acting as if you can comment on someone’s wallet?

    Personally your not sleeping with me, feeding me or financing me therefore you don’t know my or anyone else’s Situation.

    More and more these types of posts show up and honestly it seems like they are posted by people who have money issues themselves and are pissed or something folks can actually buy things without abandon.

    It’s all good though go create a throwaway account and post the same thing again. Like a clock telling the time on the regular you and your type who posts things like this are consistent.
