    well....yeah. Most people don't want to spend $1k+ on a cell phone. Most iPhones I see in the wild are 6-8 Plus. I've seen 5 actual iPhone Xs. Im sure after Christmas that will change a bit, but not drastically.

    You are right, beyond the millions of people so far who have. LOL

    Here in the states it is the same price. Look I am not trying to argue if you don’t want to buy the damn phone then don’t.

    I’m happy with my purchase and clearly so are others. Seems like this world has become such a miserable place when folks are trying to tear me down for enjoying my purchase.

    Not everyone is cheap and I will not apologize for that. I’m sick of being attacked on this board for enjoying my device.

    Ed, you are too rational and objective to be posting on MR.

    Finally we get some science applied to how well the iPhone X is selling.

    Jedi, remember, “haters gonna hate,” whether it’s politics, sports or tech. Just sit back and enjoy that beautiful phone with your favorite beverage while they writhe in misery (with Face ID you don’t have to worry anymore about your moist fingers )

    None of this is surprising to me anymore when Apple essentially made the Galaxy S6 using a Samsung-made component (the OLED display) as the X's best feature. Even over a year ago, posters in this forum were referring the X as the iPhone S8.

    Apple doesn't really deserve any more of our money after cheating us with throttlegate. Keep supporting crooks if you like. I will still stick to macOS because it doesn't have that throttlegate stuff even a decade after use.

    macOS >> iOS

    I'm a MacDroid fan.

    This is what I think it ultimately boils down too. I think the focus needs to be towards iOS. imo, there just isn't enough of a justification for most people to buying another new cell phone when iOS is stagnant. animojis is not gonna get the vast majority of people to upgrade their iPhone. Speaking from anecdotal evidence, most don't notice the incremental speed differences between the last one released, and a newer one released. Most don't notice "deeper blacks" on the OLED. Camera differences are negligible. What does get people to upgrade their iPhone? slow phones will, and now with this recent story, most people are gonna realize they don't even need to break out the wallet to buy a new phone, they can just replace the battery.

    I have realized there are some jealous hating people on this forum. Enjoy your quarterbacking while I enjoy my 64GB X.

    It’s a blessing to be able to afford such nice things. Sorry you can’t though. I tried to be humble but if you can’t beat em then join em.

    The dollar price I quoted is from US Amazon site sold by Samsung. That is the price in the US.

    Sorry you don’t earn enough money to spend $50/mo on a sweet piece of technology. Try canceling cable, coffee, or frequent drinking.

    And if you’re just making calls, you’re using it wrong.

    Apple already lost their integrity with throttlegate. Why would it matter when we already know the iPhone X will be slow as a 3Gs after two years of battery degradation?

    The X could win all the benchmark scores and speed tests. It won't matter once the battery degrades to a point that the X will be throttled down to 2009 specs.

    That fresh and fluid honeymoon phase eXperience will just fade away because a newer and faster iPhone will be released and your X will get slower over time.

    Humble is not stating your are in some "elite" group that can afford one....
    --- Post Merged, Dec 23, 2017 ---
    I assume the x plus will follow, and that will set prices at around £1500 with AC+ . That is more than entry iMacs and MacBook pros . It is just a phone.

    He didn't say he could not afford it, just that the intrinsic value of it does not match the price.

    You just thought it would feel good to call someone else poor. *******.

    Don't worry, he is probably over-extended on his mortgage, but still bought the iPhone X anyway.

    I’m not over extended on anything and maybe you and others should mind your damn business when it comes to what people buy.

    This info doesn't surprise me. I've only seen one in the wild.

    .....well, If they don't like something, surely they're not going to go out and buy it/keep it.

    I saw the X and though it looked ugly. Am very happy with my 8plus, and the money I saved went towards a new iPad

    Win Win :)

    Yep exactly what I was going to write. Even if you can consider it more of a computer than a phone it is still a lot of money. And if you consider other apple things you payed for already (watch, iPad, laptop/desktop) is another 1000 bucks justified?

    Sell 1 phone for 1 billion $ or a billion phones for 1 $ to make a billion $ profit. Apple surely moved towards the sell 1 phone end.

    Or a phone with a fresh battery that can handle iOS 11 without slowing down.

    I second on this. A lot of jealous people wanting iPhone X but could not have due to many reasons would attack some of us who are very fortunate for being able to have it and keep it. The jealousy of not being able to have and keep the best iPhone in the iPhone history is shown across the board in MacRumors with trolling in any iPhone X related threads including this thread.

    The price isn’t that big of a deal, kinda expected it to be £1000. I’m just personally waiting for the rev2 of the X.

    They make $20K watches, but I highly doubt Warren Buffett has one, considering that, despite his billions, he has lived in the same ranch-style home in an older Omaha neighborhood for years. He would consider the watch not worth the value. - to him. Has nothing to do with jealousy. When someone disagrees with your consumer values, it isn't proof that they are jealous.

    That said, you're right in that there are annoying (and obvious) trollers here on both sides of the X pricing issue. But mere disagreement in and of itself is neither trolling nor jealousy.
