I think 999$ and lack of a Plus version were two main reasons hurting iphone X sales.

    Anonymous, 20 Feb 2018Simple idea.. Keep these cut screens for S10. Soon or ... moreMoron territory. Thatt spyware notch, people don't want. UGLY. Idiotic. Undefendable. Its not Samoled rejected its the gamble to lie to the public didn't pay off. Its the notch phone x. Even unboxapplelyingthereapy, tried to pretend it was so good it could compare to the S8, and make the S8 look inferior. Well having bought the media didn't lead the public this time. Spyware notch out. Full screen Samoled in. By the way making people stare at the screen for stupid emoji to get thier face mapped , did not work either.

      every phones has their own disadvantages no phone is very good at all sides.

      i am laughing while reading comments in here. im sure that samsung users are the once who is mad in here. samsung users are always have an issue/s to other brands on the market. xioami is one of the brand that eating some % on the market of samsung.

        I can see some folks here blame Samsung etc for this. Wake up people, the root cause of this is the lackluster iPhone X sales.

          Typical Apple responsible for every disaster :-)

            Oathbreaker, 21 Feb 2018MacBook Airs and Pros had SD card slots before 2016. MBP in... moreI know of that. I referred to the iPhones.

              This report of Nikkei, it's just simply for a lack of a better term, delusional! As if Samsung would somehow not be able to use this to their other phones!

                would be nice if they dropped the price for the screens on a whole...and lcd providers should do the same

                    why dont they sell all of those oleds to sony.
                    we all know xperias have worse screens, and jdi can't afford to mass produce oled screens

                      wasox, 21 Feb 2018The thing is, samsung can go on as if nothing had happened,... moreYes Samsung group was reported to be over USD 300 billion a year in 2014. They are over 20% of Korea's economy. That is why some in Korea call it the 'Republic of Samsung' (sarcastically)

                        As long as they have their legion of fans, their profits would be fine (which is what matters). They cannot run after market share anyway, as Android already occupies 87% of the smartphone market.

                          The thing is, samsung can go on as if nothing had happened, just a bussines that went somewhat chopped out, but samsung is a real huge industry and bussines enterprise, oled panels is just a little par, they could easily drop it, and they can go on as if nothing had happened

                            Tim... time to refresh the Mac mini, iPad mini, Mac Pro, SE, MacBook Air..

                            Your top of the line, expensive stuff is not selling.. People knows they are not worth it.
                            iMac Pro.. You solder ram / hdd / gpu.. AND NOW you wanna solder display also!
                            iPad Pro (the laptop wannabe).. without mouse / trackpad.. GG
                            Macbook Pros (Double refresh.. just to taunt the pro users)

                            The 10 year series iPhone X... with this sell rate.. is really a shame tribute for Steve. Really sad. Wake up! Dare to come up with so many product, have the BALLS to upgrade ALL of them at least once a year!

                                jtrogr, 20 Feb 2018Sure, if it makes you feel better.Well facts and reality generally do so yes

                                  Kiyasuriin, 20 Feb 2018since when iPhones ever had SD card? ahahahaha. apple never... moreMacBook Airs and Pros had SD card slots before 2016. MBP in 2008 even had removable battery. The 4th or later iPod nanos had FM radio. Only iPhones are the most crippled and just as an expensive as a Mac. They don't even have split-view or PiP that iPads could do for years.

                                    Keep these cut screens for S10. Soon or later koreans will use notch.

                                      IPhone users are so scared of the X, a 6 or 7 is good for hiding behind at this time
