    #4 all the way!!! I only have a couple of women friends because many women are overly emotional & take things way too personally. I just can’t be bothered with that mess!
    exactly this! 🤣

    Same. Never heard someone mock another based on phone. There is usually another reason.
    I must live a sheltered life because I’ve literally never seen anyone in public openly chastise another over their phone choice. Hell, nobody around here really pays that much attention. Is it really that bad out there? Lol. This scenario sounds wild. Even more so if it was literally just about a cell phone choice.

    To quote the Dark Knight: 'Some men just like to watch the world burn.' To put it in a way that still applies to this scenario, sometimes people are spiteful just because they can be.

    It had nothing to do with the iPhone X.

    1. Her nails were done beautifully.
    2 Probably a head turning or what I like to call breaking necks type of woman.
    3. She was skinnier than them.
    4. Her outfit screamed “Biotches”.
    5. Hair looking like she just came fresh out of a salon .
    6-100000. Sorry, I just don’t have that much time to write all of it down .

    No offense but I think the post is irrelevant to the forum. As for me, my life is not defined by what people think about me or say behind my back. Don't like my phone, look somewhere else!

    Well, they were clearly jealous by the superiority of her phone versus theirs.

    And they most probably mixed up their pills, that morning.

    You’re a woman, everything you say is biased and therefore not trustworthy.

    I too find the OP post as an odd one and probably not meant for this exact forum but what do I know. What I do know is that people are weird and crazy, men and women both. I try my best to avoid them as much as possible lol.

    1. There seems to be an implication that this sort of situation tends to occur among women, which is totally untrue. If this occurs, it occurs equallly or more among men too. Men tend to be more narciists than wemen aree.

    2. The vwey notion (or presumption) that this "status symbol" type idea exists is exactly the proof that we all are taken in by Aple marketing to hype up the "high end" status (thus justifying what I think is unduly high price of everything Apple put out in the market. But what" high end"? What is it?

    3. This played into Apple's hand to create that high end image and justify their over pricing, which I am sure continues. This will only help Apple continuing their strategy to exploit loyal Apple folowers (captive market) who are totally trapped in their closed ecosystem. I know you know that. But it is hard to get out of it, and that's exactly what Apple has planned. They know it.

    4. Don't take me wrong please I have been a loyal Apple fan boy for a loooong time and still am. But I am feeling lately that Apple has changed quite some time ago. Overpricing is not new. I observed it even in Jobs'era. But I could justify their high price, as Apple products pleaased consumers.

    5. I transformed myself from a blind Apple fanboy to a "thinking consumer" :-).

    I know I am just reacting to this "high (i.e., over) priced) items are somehow something to show off. I will continue to buy iPhone and other Apple products. I am too trappeed deep into the close garden.
    I hope Apple eeplace the money mongering top with forward thiniking genuius and resotre lost mojo of yesteryears. I am prepared to pay any money for excellent products, no outrageous repair cost, no user-"unaccesible" sealed box and on and on.
    My apologies if I offended anyone.

    Duck and hide!

    This was an incident that happened to feature women. If it had been men, I would've still created the thread.

    YOU've presumed that this is a "status symbol" type idea. Not me. I simply provided possible reasons to choose from.

    In regarding to it being difficult to get out of Apple's ecosystem, I'm not one of the people who feels that way. Having said that, would it be less difficult for someone who has devoted just as much into the Android ecosystem?

    You do realize that A good deal of Apple's customers are still pleased, right?

    Are you assuming the rest of us are blind Apple Fans? If so, why?

    I know I am just reacting to this "high (i.e., over) priced) items are somehow something to show off. I will continue to buy iPhone and other Apple products. I am too trappeed deep into the close garden.
    You are not "trapped". If you wanted to, you could make the adjustment with another ecosystem just like the anyone else.

    . This is not Steve Job's Apple anymore. This is Tim Cook's Apple.

    It's definitely 6. The first 5 answers are insipid without unless there is a whole lot of additional information to back them up. Making negative assumptions about the motivations of others is almost always misguided. Simple logic and basic psychology allow us to eliminate 2, 3, 4 and 5 out of hand - none of those would have any probability of outweighing nonverbal queues that may have caused the initial "staring" and the staring cannot be discounted as part of the explanation of the comment. 1 is incredibly unlikely on the same grounds, because it takes place subsequent to the staring. The initial disagreement took place prior to that comment.
