XR is the budget phone bro

XS is the newest but in September there will be a new one... I wouldn’t pay for one now because you’ll be getting an outdated phone at full price...

I can't think of anything that bores me more than shopping for a new phone. All I need is call, text, camera, and this board, lol

this isn't an android vs iphone (or pc vs mac) question..

but i have an honest question i am curious about.


but i do not own a single apple product.... like for example my frankenlaptop was technically a dell originally (but it's got extra RAM sticks i pulled out of an acer laptop, a network card pulled out of a lenovo... i pulled the DVD/RW drive that came with the laptop out (because i can download a two hour HD movie off the pirate bay in less than 3 minutes, and if i need to transfer data to another computer i can use a 128GB usb stick...why the fuck would I ever need to use DVD/RW drive ever again?)

and put a western digital SSD hard drive there where it used to be...so now i boot my windows 7 OS off that drive...... it originally took like 3 minutes to turn on my laptop and wait for windows to load...now it takes like 15 seconds

and the original 1TB HHD is now being used as second storage hard drive used for the storage of all my files and software and whatnot....

....i can easily transfer photo and video media from my android phone to my laptop (via bluetooth or using a USB cable) and vice versa
...i can easily transfer media from the laptop to chromecast or amazaon fire stick via wireless
...i can easily transsfer all sorts of stuff between laptop/phone/roku box/another computer using the wireless network on my ASUS router


but with apple... if you have an iphone... and you want to make it communicate with your laptop...you need itunes.
if you have an ipod/ipad and you want to communicate with your computer, you need a firewire cable i think?
which only communicates with other apple products, so you need a macbook...or maybe you just use an ipad instead.
and if you want to watch media on your tv wireless... then you pretty much need apple TV.
then apple comes out with a watch that will work with everything you already own...so why not try it out?
and by this point you'd be retarded if you didn't have Airport for all your wireless connections.


all of a sudden...everything you owned is made by one single company
you have lost the ability to price shop and compare products when you need to upgrade.
and you are in the apple cult....whether you intended to join it or not.... your inital purchase of an apple product has forced you into this position, right?

when i need a new phone..the question is "do i want a new galaxy X phone..... or Motorola turbo phone...of samsung whatever phone....? let me compare cameras...battery life..battery charge time...which one has the best processor and most RAM..which one has the most GB of storage...what's the price?
?
i think it's time to upgrade my laptop...do i want to maybe go with samsung on that too? or lenovo... or build my own? what has the best specs vs value?
or....

which wireless router can handle all my connections and the most data..now.....and also 2+ years from now when technology catches up..or 5 years...and which one has the best price? (that's why I bought my ASUS router after a LOT of research..it was expensive but i decided it was worth the investment)


once you have joined the apple cult and you need a new phone, the only question to ask is "which iphone should i buy?"

am i correct?

point is... since everything apple owns is propitiatory... is it even possible to buy an iphone/ipod/ipad/mabcook/etc without completely switching to the apple "cult"? (because that's what it seems like to me.... also do apple users even realize this is happening? or do they realize it, but they are just okay with it?

and is it even possible to get out without litetally throwing away all your electronic devices and starting over?

also how is that not a violation of anti-trust laws (maybe not yet from a legal standpoint..but it's getting pretty fucking close)

back in the 1990's the government broke up microsoft just because they were selling windows and internet explorer in the same box LOL

am i mistaken about all this?

about what?

i am not trying to start an argument or shitting on anyone or anything.

i am honestly actually wondering the answer to this....


don't take this an insult or attack.... but how many electronic devices do you own that are and are not made by apple? (if you don't mind me asking?)

Iphone
Ipad
Macbook Air
AirPods
Apple TV (2)

I have a PC hooked to my TV but it doesn't work well anymore.
I go with Apple because they last A LOT longer and are simple to use (which goes a long way when you have employees that grew up in the 70s).

on that note... the part where i asked "do apple users even realize this is happening? may be one of the more important parts of the post judging by the two responses i have gotten so far lol

I realize what they are doing and also don't really care.

Back in my Stanley days they used to give me a new Dell or HP laptop every 3 years, but they would usually crash after 2 years.

I've literally created everything I have with this biz on this Macbook Air I bought 4 years ago, and it still works exactly the way it worked the day I bought it.

fair enough.. i completely understand why people buy apple products. they make good products.


but i guess a better way to phrase the question would be.....

(and this is a completely hypothetical scenario by the way.... what would happen if something happened at apple and they suddenly released a statement tomorrow that they were increasing the price on all future products by 10,000%. that's it. if you don't like it, then don't buy it.

i am in position where i can say "okay...i won't"

how would you go about deciding what to purchase next when it came time to upgrade or replace any one of those items you just listed?

and i apologize if this is coming off as argumentative... that's not my intention

this has honestly been a HUGE factor in my hesitation to buy anything made apple

but since i don't own anything made by them.... there's a very good chance i might be completely wrong and mistaken about all this.

i'm not trying to tell someone who lives in Kabul what it's like to live there based on what i have read (even though i've never been there myself)...but it seems like there's an equally good chance that if i moved to kabul tomorrow, i may be correct in my assumption that it's not for me lol
