That is what I got out of anti-Apple screed writer Lisa Easdicicco’s piece:
Though industry giants like Apple, Samsung, and Google have been pricing their new smartphones at about $1,000 over the past two years, new data shows that such a cost is simply too high for most people.
Rubbish. Old data shows Apple’s iPhone marketshare was small compared to other smartphones (Android) yet sold better than Samsung’s premium galaxy class.
Less than 10% of people in the United States are spending more than $1,000 on a new smartphone
So says the survey.
Tech companies have had a hard time convincing people to upgrade to new devices each year as prices increase.
And yet Apple still sells about 150-million new iPhones a year. Amazing. What should poor old Apple do?
Apple and Samsung would usually launch two smartphone models in different screen sizes before 2017, recently they’ve shifted toward debuting even more devices at various price points, appealing to people with differing budgets.
