This is why I emphasized “we” and “we are” referring to us, the enthusiasts. It’s great for the average consumer but this whole over-satirization of Apple doing something super-duper ZOMGBBQ around these parts is what I’m referring to. It’s a great option for a phone but let’s keep things in perspective here. It’s a phone with a 6 year old design with the most recent processor crammed in it.
While we’re on the subject, I think the notion of “budget” phone for $399 is funny. I would have been much more impressed had this phone been exactly what the XR is but the same size footprint of the overall device as the iPhone 8 at $399 would be much more impressive.
Trust me, I understand avoiding the drooling that goes on here. I have a feeling sometimes that if Apple put out a brick with their logo on it would sell millions! Lol.
I’m not sure they could have made an Xr in an 8 body and charged $399. I would have liked it a lot better though.
