Vegetaholic, 29 Oct 2017Much less than 200 dollar for sure, you buy phone for 999 dollar... moreIf you have AppleCare+ it's just $29 for a screen repair and $99 for anything else.

Good. Actually superb

AnonD-147910, 28 Oct 2017How much does a screen replacement cost for other AMOLED devices... moreMuch less than 200 dollar for sure, you buy phone for 999 dollars and paying another fortune to maintain it. It is robbery. So you will drop your phone and something happens internally you must pay 500 dollar :D apple care plan is a joke, you paying 200 already and still have to pay for repairs, there is the logic??????

Just buy a new phone!! lol

Absolutly abusive. As an example, one of the most common reparations is replace a damaged usb-board. Yoy can find replacements for 25-30$ delivery included. Now ad the work, open the phone with your thermal machine, clean the adhesive, replace the board, put the new adhesive and close the phone. 45 minutes max. 30$ being expensive? so at most 60$ and their are asking for 549$? It's an insult to the inteligence. Now I understand why people criticize those who buy Apple claiming they do so to boast how much money they have more than for another reason. And that their products are for clumsy with good wallet.

AnonD-424566, 28 Oct 2017So to get ya money's worth you need to replace the screen 7 time... moreSorry buddy, though I agree Apple Care is a rip off overall, you have your math back to front...
If you replace the screen once, you've already saved $51 (App care $199 + $29 = $228 vs $279 ...$51 less). So it's a savings, though not huge. However if you're clumsy and get the screen replaced 3 or more times, then yes you're ahead.

As for the other repair costs - $549 is shocking! And your first repair with App care still costs you nearly $300, which is still damn gnarly. And if I had a phone that needed multiple repairs I'd be demanding a replacement phone anyway.

All in all just another way that Apple keeps itself as the most profitable company on the planet

In order word, if your iPhone X isn't properly working anymore, buy a new one

Sony Fanboy Bitches, 28 Oct 2017'Cause it'll likely break for more than once in 2 years or so.So to get ya money's worth you need to replace the screen 7 times within 2yrs to get ya 200 bucks worth ? Sorry m8 but no logic in that,you be moved on buy then,just can't see all the after care cost making sence,but end of day it's up to the purchaser I suppose !

Why not buy a phone for that price? OnePlus 3T and Axon 7 fits in that budget easily.

Sonu4678, 28 Oct 2017Their business plan is just on another level. First sell premium... moreTheir devices are actually no more premium then anything out their. Just Nokia 6 alone surpass any iphone when we talk about hardware quality and engineering. People think that just cause is smaller has to be pricier. The truth is, any surface book tab or what ever cost way more to manufacture then this small crapp, and funny, it costs the same. Only an icore 7 cost more then an iphone production, not to talk about the screen and oh so many other things. The funny part is that this devices are not really a trend among reach people but mostly among average joe. And nope in a lot of countrys it is not a sign of wealth, it is just another slab that everybody can afford but not everybody is so dumb to buy one.

Unlike the car industry, the price of Mercedes spare parts is often cheaper than Toyota parts.

Only good reason to ever buy their phone now is if you are super rich and you don't care about whatever the repair cost is and if you own their stocks. Anything else is just being a sucker and that include being a fan.
