    “They launch a week later on September 20 starting at $999 for the iPhone 11 Pro and $1,099 for the iPhone 11 Pro Max in capacities of 64GB. Models with 256GB and 512GB of local storage are also available.“

    A phone costs as much as a mid range/high end pc?

    What "High End" PC are you getting for $1500?

    Lol wat?

    Enjoy your walled garden where everyone can see you bleeding $1k USD out the as$ for a pretty aluminum enclosure with a $380 USD BOM... oh and don't R&D BS me, since most of these "new" models are last year's rehashes.

    It's hard to believe they could create such crap! It's horrible from all points of view. They wanted to be different from the rest and a facade came out. There are a lot of phones a hundred times more beautiful, and capable.
    Probably their motto is, ugly, stupid, and expensive to the extent for snobbish suckers !!!

    You are talking to a guy who owns an Apple Card, do you honestly think he would ever look at Android device direction?........

    Bro, by the time iPhone 12 comes out you could get an android with 256GB local and a 2TB SD card.

    I agree 4k video chews through the storage like crazy, but Apple will always charge you a premium for that storage.

    I will be back when iPhone 12 comes out, I will see you then.

    You didn't understand. He is prone to loosing his phone. And doesn't want people to be able to hack in with an SD card.

    Let me make a few things clear:

    #1 Android phones have absolutely nothing I want right now.
    I like iMovie on iOS. I have no desire for any of Android's buggy phone editors.

    #2 a 1TB SD CARD is around $450 on top of the cost of a top tier Android phone which is basically exactly what I spent on my XS Max.

    #3 I am deep inside the Apple ecosystem. Not Android's. I want nothing to do with Android. If I did want android, I could buy any of the top Androids on the market. No thanks.

    I'll see you when iPhone 12 comes to market.
