MrDong, 17 Feb 2021You should look at the sales globally. In fact for instance... moreDoesn't matter the reason it wasn't able to affect sales of other iPhones is because of tiny screen. The only people who bought it were people who wanted that Apple logo at cheap price. If Apple launches regular sized phone at 200$,it will surely disrupt sales of their expensive models, no doubt.

Always on display....it could become popular.
Maybe it could even dim in low light , like when it is in your pocket etc.

I can not wait for the Apple vs Zucker war to begin.

Why they want to hurt these tech sites when in reality we all like and enjoy tech? Why they are so salty about Apple. The company which products they don’t even use? Why’s that?

For the Moderators - your lack of action is very telling, and very tiring. How many posts of actual value are there in these 9 pages of comments?

I hope there is a switch to turn this off. Unnecessary waste of battery IMO; never used it on my previous Samsung’s.

This is why their iPhone 12 sales weren't hurt.
I guarantee you if they launched regular sized iPhone at 200$, their flagship sales would decline.

That was my exact question... Why did premium brand give Lcd instead of Oled?
Ohh that's their usually strategy of saving expenditure on premium hardware just like they did with iPhone 12 camera and lack of HRR this year to cut costs and make more profits.

They don't want to be associated with third class quality hardware and software on iOS

Every company would like to sell phones with the price Apple sells. It’s just that the problem with Android is that people don’t see value with Android flagships, that’s why less and less people buy them while iPhone keep selling record high numbers.
