    They play on people's wants and trying to keep up with the Jones's, if one were to spend that much money on say a laptop computer you would get a pretty nice one, or say a family vacation where memories are made...to me it is ridiculous to spend that type of money on a device, it really is getting out of hand...smartphones have become another addiction that people are having to deal with. I don't know, but I do know I will not be getting one.

    I won't fall for their genius marketing lol.

    Become the M'ther Fn Jones's..hahaha..

    Amazing marketing plan from Samsung and Apple, you have to admit. What I think is stupid is people spreading there finances thin just for a phone. That is ridiculous... Now I don't get a new phone every year but I try to get a new one when it matters. I need not only my phone's but my laptops to be as fast as possible. For the X there are a ton of features that I can benefit from. Different perspective from my standpoint. :-)

    I do agree with you guys, some people honestly are addicted to having the latest phone out. Even if it doesn't make sense for the upgrade. Crazy..

    Re: iphone X

    I had forgotten it, but now that you mention it Knights, I remember the first cell I got was hardwired into my car back in the 80's. It was called an Okie or something like that. Big handset on the console and a shoebox containing the guts which they put in the trunk. Cost something like 2K and the bill was $2-400 per month. That was for like an hour of talk time and a lot of $ for a phone bill back then. So, even through the iPhone X is up there at $1K, things have certainly gotten better and cheaper in some ways.

    This was the first cell phone I remember, we had it for work back in the day before the Nokia ones came out that everyone started buying.

    my co worker used his so much he got a computer setup..

    after a couple of years we switch to digital phones that didn't have a brick battery..
