    In China, the premium brand is Huawei.

    Everyone wants a Mate 9 or the upcoming Mate 10 Pro.

    iPhones have become run of the mill flagship phones. They no longer have that unique prestige as before. The same with the iPhone X.

    If one buys a phone for the so called perceived prestige or luxury, then they need to get their top floor checked.

    Just like all cars look the same except for some fake creases and surfaces, so do all the laptops and along the same vein, most phones also look the same. Welcome to flattening of any product development curve. You are welcome.

    If sales are slow with the ip8/+ ...could be a rough year for Apple. Of course, we don't know yet how pre-orders on the ipX will go.

    But this is not an auspicious start.

    This is the culture in China. Just because you don't align, this does not make them crazy.

    Really, it's the culture just in China? I wonder where I have heard the phrase 'Keeping up with the Joneses'. Apparently that phrase has been in usage for more than 100 years. Guess where the drive to keep up with others comes from, yes, you guessed it, insecurity, inferiority complex ..., hence the reference to get an assessment of mental faculties.
