I firmly believe that Apple continues to make the best smartphone on the market, it’s hard to argue otherwise.
Um, no. Many phones are more durable and way, way more advanced. Apple used to lead the pack on technology but today they are falling way behind. Most of the “latest features” being touted have been out for 2 years on other phones.
Apple sells one thing, status. It is considered hip or special to be part of their apple club so most of what you are paying for is the name and the persona that goes with it as an apple user, not technology or design.
