  1. There are many powerful smart phones that have almost all of the apps and possibilities we need in our daily life as iPhone has those, but the price of them are less than iPhone! Why the price of iPhone is such HIGH please?

    Thanks.

    They charge a lot because people will pay it. For example, you did. :)

    It's priced higher because it's obviously better. Duh.

    OK, LOL:D. But about its OS, material, design, power and speed,....? No one is worth for that price!!?

    The hardware is behind major competitors (minus the superfluous CPU) on every point. The OS is a locked down and hindered abomination (however some people like it that way). The speed is...unmeasurable, because it is hidden by 5 year old animations. Ergo, top-end Android phones are 'faster'.

    My personal phone and tablet is Android, and I prefer it. But I also have an iPhone for work so I am familiar with it.
