On launch day I checked out an electronics shop where I could test an iPhone X display model, but like always with Apple no actual product to buy for several weeks after launch. A Samsung salesman walked over to try to entice me with a Galaxy S. It actually looked quite nice, but I just happen to be too into iPhones/Apple’s ecosystem at this time. It’s tempting though as I’m tired of Apple’s antics. It made me wonder how many customers does Apple lose this way vs. gaining by supposedly creating a buying frenzy. I just want to get the latest whenever new features are compelling enough, otherwise I skip. The dearth of supply just makes for a bad experience in my view. Apple will say xyz component slowed down production yadayada but it’s clearly a pattern for every major launch. They must know what they’re doing but on the other hand there are more Androids out there. Traditionally in Marketing they say that if you advertise but can’t deliver, you’re just advertising for the competition. Has it happened to you? Have you ever intended to buy an iPhone but then got fed up or enticed by and purchased an Android device instead?
