I remember byuing the iPhone 2g around 260euros then next year the 3g 100euros more, and every year a bump in prices. Ok R&D has to be paid but nowadays you are just paying the brand name.

Surely, you'll find something among so many smartphones to always have something better than iPhone. Except you'll never find even 3 in the same "Android" phone.

      My comment got blocked because i posted a link...

      Anyway the cost of iPhone's main cameras sensors are priced at around $5.40 to $7.40 each (think that's before bulk discount which may be another 30% off). (go check it yourself)

      The selfie cameras used in iPhone costs below $1 doesn't not even show up in a major tally because too many components are below that value.

      Even assuming that the selfie camera costs $1, the max it will cost now is $3. Hence, maybe iPhone selfies can finally start auto-focusing.

                Pointless if Largan still supplies lenses.
                Ones used by 13 series are low quality with too much corner softness.

                                  Apple makes it should like some revolutionary expensive magic, Huawei and Samsung had AF on front camera for years.

                                    My prediction is same than since iPhone X, iPhone sales been so high so i think they have found the great price for lot of people to pay and they propably don't want to raise it, Especially knowing the situation of the world currently.
