And I forgot one thing. Things like the no-headphone jack? It's becoming the trend since there's tons of bluetooth devices. Not gonna be surprised if the manufacturers follow the no CHARGER on the box trend as they REALLY NEED money.

"People don't want outdated software experience". And people don't want outdated software support which makes their smartphones too slow to run. One good example. If the iphone 5s is a 64 bit processor, 64 bit software, and 64 bit API during its reveal in 2013. What happened to those 32 bit android smartphones? Can you please tell me which has the highest smartphone landfill in the world??
"Budgets Android can do more than current flagship iOS" It has been like that for years. But tell me. How many people did replace their budget smartphones yearly??

[deleted post]Proven by who? You? Apple hating lot who hasn't actually ever used iOS, but keep whining how inferior it is? LMAO Guess who did use both. I have. Android for 8 years and now iOS for 2. And apart from few annoyances, they are pretty much the same thing. Android has some more freedom when you just want to load lots of crap into your phone and iOS is a bit more restricted, but just works more reliably and has much longer updating support. Everyone screeching how crappy iOS is and how it's decades behind are full of s**t. People have different priorities and if you're not into 50 launchers, 700 billion themes and flashing half baked ROM's every other day, you might have better time with iOS. If fiddling is your jam, surely, iOS isn't for you then.

Anonymous, 23 Feb 2021I think Apple will attract Android fans with this phone. Ma... moreIts gonna be priced higher than iphone pro max...

So lets me get this straight..

They replace the lowest cost ipad entry level with an even higher priced iphone than all current models..

Apple is truly disconnected from reality...

It's already 10 years ahead of iOS.
IOS receiving features from a decade back in 2020. People don't want outdated software experience. Budgets Android can do more than current flagship iOS device because Android is simply ahead.

omg this is what we with smaller hands need! it perfectly makes sense. replace small phone with the big one that looks like all the rest cr*p from android and apple. wow... geniuses

The day Apple makes a phone with a display this large is the day that I become an iphone user, this is literally all I have wanted out of a phone for years. give me a 7.x inch screen size and I will be a very happy customer.

Scarce option of mini tablets in my country made me considering to buy the iPad Mini 5, but then I've seen the iPad Mini 6 news few days ago. Let's see if they release the Mini 6 this year. A sure buy from me. But if they decide to make the "larger iPhone" stated above and discard the iPad Mini option in the future, I'll wait for Mi Pad 5 instead.

AnonD-804996, 23 Feb 2021And why would anyone mock inclusion or option of stylus? Es... more$teve Jobs himself mocked the stylus so many times. That's when the fanbbboyz started mocking it, until they got their very own Apple pencil.

Anonymous, 23 Feb 2021I've been following gsmarena posts for some years now.... moreLooks like you are selectively reading comments. There are plenty of Android haters on this site, who always make excuses for lack of things on iOS and keep repeating outdated lies about Android, that have been debunked long back.

The chinese article just guessing that, not suggests. And I don't think that Apple may so stupid to replace the cheaper iPad mini with a much more expansive large iPhone.
