how will Apple keep this up, when the iPhone 8 is in reality built from components that its competitors have deemed obsolete, and the iPhone X is really the same phone wrapped within a Samsung display?
The iPhone X: Apple’s Ideology of American Techno-Exceptionalism

Wow, so much false here.

It’s competitors willingly adopt new technology at the cost of actually being good technology. Apple’s hardware + software camera system is infinitely better than the competition. It’s ISP chip is better. It’s A10/A10X, and presumably A11 chips are some of the very best in the market.

iPhone X is a step above the iPhone 8, yes. On purpose. Which is where the price comes in. iPhone X is expected to sell in lower quantities as a premium device, where most of the market is expected to aim for the iPhone 8.

If you focus exclusively on hardware, you will miss the point of Apple 100% of the time. It’s the marriage of hardware + software that is so critical, which people like you always miss.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
