Got a reservation on two iPhone X's, both 256GB one in Silver and one in Space Grey. Will choose on the day which one I actually want once I see them in person.

>Iphone 8 overpriced garbage too
Small c414e399fa98856ab1c17dc1e62216dc
You can call it garbage all you want, but when someone buys something they want, do you really think its appropriate or even nice to call what that person is excited about, garbage?

Re: The Price, I'm getting it through my phone contract, I pay an extra $10 a month than I was previously paying and I get the top model.
Small 144a7f2c5e77b1ac5d576edbcb217bfe
Ok maybe it was a little unfair to call it garbage, but its definitely overpriced

I don't disagree that its expensive, especially in Australia. The Australia tax is crazy.

Its $1500. Thats insane, its more than my PC.
Small c414e399fa98856ab1c17dc1e62216dc
I'm paying $40 a month for it, where I was paying $30 a month for my 6S until I paid it off in August.
Small 144a7f2c5e77b1ac5d576edbcb217bfe
How much is it alltogether for the phone?
Small c414e399fa98856ab1c17dc1e62216dc
Technically the price of the phone is ~$65 a month, but in Japan, carriers provide a discount, so they give me a ~$25 a month discount on the price. So... instead of $1560 for the phone, its ~$900. For a flagship model, I can handle that ;-)
Small 144a7f2c5e77b1ac5d576edbcb217bfe
Tbh i still think thats insanely overpriced. My current phone cost me $150, is android, does everything a $900 phone does and doesnt break no matter how much i drop it

Cool bro, if your $150 phone does what you want, thats great. But I can guarantee a budget android phone is not in the same league as higher end smartphones in terms of performance and quality of parts, like the camera.
Small c414e399fa98856ab1c17dc1e62216dc
Do I think flagships are worth ~$1000? No, I don't, but I don't try to convince myself a budget phone is the same as a flagship to make myself feel superior. Nor do I feel superior because I choose to buy something special for myself once every 2-3 years over someone who buys a budget phone.

I mean, lets face it, its a phone, its not gonna need much in terms of performance. the camera and the OS seem to be the main things that actually change between phones

Just on the topic of how much you pay per month @R0ninX3ph, is that contract over the same time period as what you did for the 6S?
Small c414e399fa98856ab1c17dc1e62216dc
Yeah, same time period. 24 months.
Small 4dd53337d812071cb01527f2050f2b3e
Not such a big deal then.
Small 1282769c0705b838087a697e41463950
Wow, my sister just preordered hers and it's gonna be costing something like $140 over 12 months. What sort of data/usage do you get with your plan @R0ninX3ph?
Small c414e399fa98856ab1c17dc1e62216dc
That is just the cost for the phone payment btw, I am going from roughly ¥11000 yen a month to ¥12000 yen a month, with 20GB of data.
Small 1282769c0705b838087a697e41463950
Wow, she gets 2GB/month. IIRC the phone itself is $55 over 24 months but Optus does some sort of trade up deal which she is taking advantage of.

In Japan there’s no free social media data stuff though, so literally ALL data is counted.
