Well, do take care and hold on to your Note9 for as long as you can, cause the Note10+ and Note10 were absolute let downs, and sadly enough, reinforcing my point of Android OEMs following Apple's trends.

The Note10+... the original "phone with everything but the kitchen sink", a phone so big yet for some reason has no room for a headphone jack while having an eye watering pricetag of $1099... and don't get me started with the Note10, bloody 1080p screen with no micro SD?

Is iPhone last longer than any other Android and Windows phones? Because from what I heard from my friends who owns an iPhone from iPhone 8 to 5s for 3-6years claimed that iPhone are better when it comes to long lasting.

mmmm what could be the reason?
Mabye because a 400 EUR chinese phone has more feature, more value, built better, is more beautiful, is way more innovative and is way ahead in hardware than iPhone?
And maybe cause Apple is squizing every last penny out of their customers?
Or maybe cause their phones' quality is horrible?
Or cause for a simple battery replacement you must travel hunderads of kilometers and pay an unreal huge amount of money to only get your battery replaced, genuis shops employees break your phone and offer you to repair it for 800EUR, even more expensive than a new one ,you bring your phone to a local repair shop and they fix it for free for you "Luis Rossmann"?
Or maybe cause all what you do "DOES NOT SATY ON YOUR IPHONE", human employees sit and listen to your SIRI commands for example?

Anonymous, 10 Sep 2019LOL Nope, Android OEMs were making phones with non replaceable b... moreExactly. Don't listen to these biased and salty Android fanboys that can't afford an iPhone in the first place lol. If Android manufacturers really cared they wouldn't be removing features like Apple. The only reason they get a pass is because of the price, which either starts low, like Xiaomi and their cheap ad-infested smartphones, or depreciates over time, like Samsung and LG smartphones. If you want a 3.5mm headphone jack and/or a microSD card slot then you have to settle for low-end and mid-range smartphones. Flagship handsets owners like myself don't need or use them. I hate 99% of Apple products but let's be real here; whatever Apple does, the rest of the smartphone industry follows.

Anonymous, 10 Sep 2019Lol I didn't say anything about choices, just debunking the fact... moreThe point of android is that you do not need 750/1000 to buy a good phone. There is a phone for everyone, following trends or not. You can get an amazing android phone for less than 300 with great performance for daily use, OLED and expandable storage. Can you get an iphone for that? You can still get android phone with removable battery, can you get an iphone with one? And yes apple might be a trendsetter, but it isn't be all and end all for phones, Customers are beginning to realize that, so yeah their brains have started functioning to allow them to spend 500-600$ elsewhere after buying a new phone off contract

And I wouldn't want a Chinese company designing this hypothetical smartphone when all they do is blatantly copy everyone else. If I had to choose one it would be Hooway, not Zaomi or Moto. And why pick Krillin and not SD, or better yet, Apple's SoC? Also, Nintendo did team up with Sony, they made a CD-ROM add-on for the SNES and a new hybrid console with them but Nintendo ditched both at the last minute. Sony took the idea and ran with it. They ended up making a console of their own, maybe you've heard of it? It ultimately became the fourth highest selling video game console and its successor is still the number one selling console ever made.

Well, doesn't change the fact that it's been 3 years now, and Android brands seems to be copying everything bad about Apple. Despite their loyal fans screaming and begging them not to follow Apple's ideas, every year, more android phones are removing headphone jacks & expandable storage, sealing batteries & charging them at Apple prices.

Nobody asked them to follow Apple. NOBODY, but, they did.

Whose to blame now? Kinda ironic how Android OEMs openly bash Apple, only to screw their own customers by following suit.

Alex 94, 10 Sep 2019I remember the time when they was a leader on Japan market. Now ... more"I remember the time when they was a leader on Japan market. Now less than 10%"

They are still leader owning over 50% of iPhone market in Japan, you are reading this data wrong. It's about where most iPhone sales came in that timeline. It's not about countries marketshare.

Very good opportunity for a third ecosystem with killer features at affordable prices.... especially in the global markets..

Anonymous, 10 Sep 2019Lol I didn't say anything about choices, just debunking the fact... moreAndroid have new phones at all price ranges, plenty of alternatives and features everywhere with a lot of brands to choose, something that Apple don't have and don't want, only refurbished crap and limite options. And yearly and generational clones between them.

We are in the fall of 2019 and Apple will release today a >$750 phone (it's cheaper one) with a 5W charger, Lightning port to USB-A, with a low resolution LCD display and with a small battery too. Of course don't ask for expandable storage or jack or something else. Each extra MB of memory still at gold price and a total control of accesories and services, all them overpriced too, but this time once their custom service is running, they'll brick no approved phones too!!! That is what you are buying.

Excellent news for the Customer. I'll like the other brands like Xiaomi or Huawei.

After all, when the notch came out on iPhone X, every fandroid came out of the woods screaming at Apple fans, saying Essential PH1 was the first & when there was no removable batteries & no headphone jack, Oppo & Meizu were first. Their words not mine :).

Sure, people are getting a brain slowly & steadily (don't know what that means lol), but Android OEMs are losing theirs for sure, cause they seem pretty dead set at following Apple's footsteps for like 3 years now; android flagships are getting bigger but also adding notches, sealing off batteries, removing micro sd expansion & headphone jacks while selling them at the $1000 mark.

Guess the "master" seems to command Android OEMs too?

XR is Apple's cheapest model so obviously it'll sell more than the XS and XS Max, especially since the XR's hardware is so similar to its pricer siblings. The only thing that surprised me is how well it sold. I guess I shouldn't be since most of the units were bought in the U.S. where Apple remains dominant in the mobile space. Nobody is going to spend $1000+ for a smartphone that doesn't offer anything new and exciting. iPhone users are iPhone users because of iOS and/or the Apple brand/ecosystem, they don't care about or need the best hardware, therefore their cheapest current model and older generation models will suffice.
