Anonymous, 10 Feb 2021Is what they need to do to excuse their bad purchases, lol.... moreThey buy budget 200 Euro phones as even 200 Euro phones are beating iPhone in multiple departments. Let that sink in!!! Why should they pay more for outdated hardware and software of iPhone?

Anonymous, 11 Feb 2021In fact you will upgrade your phone after two years anyway.No I won't. I'm still on XR and I don't have any plans to change it now that I have a proper support with updates. I've ran out of them in 2 years on all Android phones though and knowing you don't have latest OS anymore just sucks. Well, not anymore with iPhone and iOS...

What a loser!... moreEven thou I like Samsung and I think that is the only company making Android phones worth taking into consideration, they are sitting in first place mainly because of their cheap models, not for their premium models.
Their S, Note and Fold series are really nice, but they are expensive and the average people do not buy them. I mean not in large numbers and certainly not in emerging countries.

AnonD-973296, 10 Feb 2021well they may stop production due to less than expected demandlol I love it when you haters change the goalposts. This phone is only a flop by Apple's usual sales results - any other manufacturer would be over the moon with the sales numbers of the 12 mini.

Apple would have known full-well what numbers to expect, but they did it anyway.

AnonD-804996, 10 Feb 2021The most annoying thing is, even those 1000€ Android phones... moreSince it's not better than the flagship xperia(screen,battery,camera) and the ios is just awfull in comparison with android on xperia,I'll never change! Also,apple has worst design in a phone,and they are so heavy! Xperia 1 III will be a beast,as Xperia 1 II is a little better than 12 pro max in camera

Oh no, let's run to the Apple stores before industry ran out of chips! Is this the message from analysts who "think but can't quantify"? :-)

Anonymous, 10 Feb 2021Is what they need to do to excuse their bad purchases, lol.... moreThe most annoying thing is, even those 1000€ Android phones aren't any better. It's why hardly anyone ever stays with same brand unless they are its biggest fanboys. I mean, I literally never had 2 Android phones in a row from same vendor. Hell, I never had 2 from same brand. If I were a phone maker, I'd be pretty worried if your userbase has that little loyalty to the brand you have. Apple is the exact opposite of that. But not in a fanboy kind of way. I mean sure, there are too coz fanboys are everywhere, but at least Apple gives you the incentive to stick around. Having very long proper software support at least for me is like the biggest one. If I reliably and timely get updates for a long time, I have zero incentive to buy another phone. And when it'll be that old, because of the good experience, I'll most likely go with Apple again. Not because I'd be so inconvenienced to switch, I don't use any of their specific services so I can easily switch tomorrow if I want, it's just that I just don't want to. I just don't want to deal with crappy deferred Android updates, lack of long term updates and even Google itself and their idiocies. I'm excited every time I see a cool Android device, but then I realize it still has all the crap that made me dump Android and I just give up on that idea. If some vendor starts offering 5 full years of major version updates, I'd even reconsider having "relationship" with Google again. But since that just doesn't exist, I'm not even thinking about it. So, there's that.
