YES! all it is is hype , they sell o hype and make their product seem exclusive and upper class by denying it to be compatible with other platforms. however they have had many security breaks including uber and a few apps , they just sweep it under the rug. I smell smug.

It’s all about the experience. If the iPhone X doesn’t do it for you, cool. For me, it’s what I’ve always wanted on a portable digital device, and a big step up from my iPhone 7. Considering how much time I spend on my phone, it’s very much worth it.

Of course, I never understand why anyone would care how other people spend their disposable income. I’m sure there’s stuff you spend money on that would leave me scratching my head. But I’d never doubt that you are getting something out of it.

if i get the 1,150USD price as you guys get there in the US, i wont even blink when i pressed the purchased button. the problem is the price here in my country(indonesia) is reaching the 2,100-2,200USD price point on launch day(nov 4th) and guess what? it still sold out within 3 hours. now the price has down to 1,700 and it still sell out like hot cakes. i will wait till at least on 1,400USD then i buy it. iPhone X is great despite the fact that i really hate the notch, but i will still buy it because nothing on android or any other phone can offer me what the iPhone offer(keep in mind that i've been using android too for years as a secondary phone until today).

me too, i dont get why people spent 10,000USD on a watch just to show the time and nothing else. do u know why? its all about life priority, wants and life style. the point is, when you get the money, you'll understand

IphoneX

When people can afford such expensive phone I can understand that they buy it I canít afford to buy the iPhoneX but when hardworking people want to spend that money on the newest iPhone it is there good right to do so I donít understand the discussion what buying an iPhone has to do with contributing to charity these are totally different things mabey the one that wrote the post about charity assume that when someone spend a large amount of money on buying a iPhoneX that he can easily give some money to charity mabey they already give a monthly som off money to charity I contribute monthly Ä3,- to World Nature Fund itís not much but when a lot of people to this great things can be achieved but again buying a iPhoneX has nothing to do with giving to charity.

Because it a social status thing , similar to driving a Ferrari or a old capri. People are all about looks, social status and whooping out the latest phone is part of that , and Apple made sure kids know that.

It the way they market , fot the elite , the upper-class this means if you dont have one you are behind.

They do the same thing with Mac pcs although i will say the pcs do carry some actual advantages as compared to most of their competition .

i can say the same thing to about mac, since i own imac, macbook pro and a 5000bucks pc, which makes my comment supposed to be legit. this thing will not over and can go on and on. one thing that you have to keep in mind is NOTHING is more powerful or better than the other. its all about choices and depend on your needs. each on their own have advantages and disadvantages.
