Why You shouldn’t Buy An iPhone
THE RIDICULOUS PRICING
The Apple brand is nothing more than a prestigious brand, meaning for any product released, the price will be bloated beyond compare. The reason for this is said to be the materials acquired for manufacturing.
Quality materials they say, and yet an important part of the phone on which the user depends to interact with device (the screen) is the cheapest on the market(LED,LCD).
The prices of Apple’s cheap screen replacement range from $146-$200 with icare+, the 1st iPhone to the last iPhone before the iPhone x(8 plus) used very cheap screens and yet the device is priced extremely high, all the while competitors like Samsung are noted for using quality screens(OLED).
The very first Samsung phone to use an AMOLED screen (a type of OLED) this was the Samsung i7 110, which was announced in late October 2008, but did not hit the market until February 2009 whiles the fist iPhone to use an OLED screen was lunched in September 2017.
Fun-fact : The top 5 most expensive phone are all iPhones predating iPhone 7.

APPLE PHONE’S STORAGE IS DEPENDENT ON YOU POCKET
As prestigious as the device is, one is expected to spend more and more bucks to get a satiable storage capacity, something that is a very essential part of the device.
Consider buying an iPhone for a price and having to pay more and at some point having to repay that same cost of the old one to get the same phone with much bigger storage.
APPLE IS LOCKING USERS UP IN ITS ECOSYSTEM
An ecosystem is as a biological community of interacting organisms. In tech terms, this means a group of devices with some software that enables the need for one collaborative network.
Apple is finding more ways of trapping users into their ecosystem which is a valid motive of every manufacturer, but Apple does this while extorting money from them. The Apple TV+, AppleCare+ and more are the ends while the phones are noting but the means.
Families of devices or ecosystems create a sense of consistency and ease in a consumers life most of the time, but in Apple’s case is it good for the consumer? Does it keep us connected and happy or is it just to make us spend more money?
