Like always on display Apples got just now and Nokia N8 had it 12 years ago.

    Anonymous, 26 Nov 2022dont complain if iphone gonna be like start at ~ $2000 pri... moreMan since average assembly worker in USA receives between 16 to 24 USD per hour compared to chinese worker working for average 12 to 24 Yuans which is between 1 dollar and 2,20 USD per hour its only logical that eve old Iphone 3Gs would cost at least 5000.
    New Iphones 15 pro max with 1TB will be as expensive as most expensives Apple phones made by caviar company today.
    And when that happens new phones made by Caviar will be far more expensive than most expensive Apple phones ever made which was 6S plus Falcon edition. 3 pieces were made from a fallen meteorite sold for 110 000 000 million USD.
    Mark my words.

      NickValok, 26 Nov 2022Unlike Apple, Samsung also operates factories in South Kore... moreDon't try to make Samsung look like a better company. Samsung is equally worse with their monopoly shenanigans in several countries and is basically untouchable in South Korea.

      Just look at the preferential treatment received by Samsung chairman Lee Jae-yong. A jail sentence to quell outrage and eventual presidential pardon when things settled down. So much for South Korea claiming they are tough on corruption. And you guys call China corrupt, oh puh-lease.

      Btw, Samsung moved to Vietnam because of tax relief by the government. Main reason though is Samsung can get even cheaper labor because of lower living standards in Vietnam.

        Anonymous, 26 Nov 2022They own the factory not the workers, which are local populationBut firing existing employees, hiring new recruits at lower starting salary and delaying salary payment that caused this chaos are Foxconn's leadership decisions. Foxconn's board of directors consisting mainly Taiwanese. Foxconn is a Taiwanese company, period.

Samsung left China a few years ago because it knew the risks of running a factory in China. And that's a very good choice.

I have never seen or heard about a comunist country that was actually comunist and for the people, and not a self declared Dictatorship prick.
