Olym1mk2, 28 Jan 2021Sounds like unhealthy food you eat. And why do we hate them... moreVietnam and India is also part of Asia. Apple is not moving from Asia, but from China only. Also China probably would survive without USA , but would they live as nicely as now?

But there's always Chinese components in the gadgets, no matter what you buy. Asia would easily survive without US.! The US doesn't even cover 1/3 of the world. Asia does.

Vietnam is the country where the Google Pixel is builded. If they make Apple screens like they make G.Pixel screens, then we're going to see a lack of sensitivity on the sides. Cheap is expensive.

Anonymous, 27 Jan 2021Made in Vietnam. Sounds cool. My S6 Edge still works fine.The device's quality depends on a contract manufacturer's expertise in producing the devices. For instance, take Foxconn, who manufactures everything for Apple and HP. It also depends on the quality of components used. Every OEM is capable of manufacturing quality, provided that they keep the above points in check.
