You also get three months free screen replacement at Huawei.
Also 119 dollars to replace a brick inside your pc? What did you replace a 50000 mah battery?February 28, 2020 at 7:30 pm #25449
Your missing the point. It was cheaper for Apple to replace my power supply thank for me to do it. Considering I’d have also buy a new gasket for the screen.
Awesome. Three months free screen replacement. Works a treat when you break it at 1.5 years.February 28, 2020 at 11:20 pm #25454
i would hope so considering buying the newest iphone costs twice as much as a p30 pro.
Also 119 dollars to replace a literal brick inside your pc was not worth it.February 29, 2020 at 1:20 am #25455Rij11ParticipantFUNK: 14,234Rank: Diamond-Back Gorilla

May I suggest you read my first post again.
I mentioned nothing about a battery.February 29, 2020 at 9:44 am #25559
Ah sorry mixed up power supply and battery. Also just saying it’s pretty hard to find reliable info when the only info i got was “mac” and “some years ago.”February 29, 2020 at 12:02 pm #25561
bzerk86 I agree, but sometimes the products can get really unaffordable, like the maxed out Mac Pro for example. Some other products im fine thoFebruary 29, 2020 at 12:04 pm #25562
Rij11 I agree kindaFebruary 29, 2020 at 3:29 pm #25619
@Clutch for sure, the maxed out MacPro is insane, I doubt even Pixar animators need that level of horsepower. However it’s not as expensive as an equivalently specced xeon workstation from Lenovo that can easily reach over $110,000 (not a typo and no monitor).
Consumers rarely see how much true professional grade equipment can cost. A recording mic can be tens of thousands of dollars, a professional construction drill from Hilti can be two thousand and a mainframe linux server can be tens of millions with a hundred grand a month licensing fee.
Creative pros will definitely find a modestly equipped version valuable, one it’s a tax deduction and secondly if it saves you time in processing many tracks of music, video editing ect it means you can get more done. The below video elaborates on this, they have never seen a computer that can do the same level of processing as the MacPro.
The screen and stands are costly, but not as much as the the equivalent from Sony that is $30,000.
I think at the end of the day it’s all perspective, use what you like because there is no point spending a cent on something you don’t like using. Phones, computers and consumer electronics are things we interface with on a daily basis and in my mind if you can afford a $1500 phone that you like, regardless of brand, buy it because you will enjoy each interaction more.
My mother has to be one of the most computer illiterate people I know, yet she picked up and started using my iPad one day and before we knew it she was comfortable playing games, doing online banking, email and FaceTime. She loved my iPad so much she went and got herself an iPad pro. It’s a lot for a tablet but what would have the purpose been spending the same money on anything else, she wouldn’t have know what to do with it. That to me is how much time, research and thought goes into the software and hardware from Apple. Sure, it’s not all perfect but what is?March 1, 2020 at 12:42 am #25638AdrianaModeratorFUNKY KINGFUNK: 22,505Rank: Diamond-Back Gorilla
I was very lucky with the iPhones, never paid full price for them (I love a good bargain!), and never had major issues:
- iPhone 4 16gb, cost me EUR 200 (~USD 275) in 2011, used it until the end of 2014, then gave it to my Mum who used it for another couple of years. The home button broke after I gave it to her, but it was still usable with the on-screen one. It’s now in a box somewhere, but still works. The most beautiful iPhone ever made.
- iPhone 5c 16gb, cost me EUR 180 (~USD 230) in 2014, used it for 1 year, my Dad is still using it today.
- iPhone 6 64gb, got it from my Mum in 2016, not sure how much she paid for it, but it wasn’t expensive. Used it for 1 year, then gave it back to her, and she used it until last year. The battery died, but it cost only EUR 50 to replace. Sold it. Least favourite.
- iPhone 7 32gb, cost me EUR 370 (~USD 415) in 2017, used it for 2 years. My Mum has it now.
- iPhone XR 128gb, paid EUR 380 (~USD 420) for it in Dec. 2018, and I’m still using it. iOS 13 is a bit buggy. I found that I prefer this size, I must have dropped the 6 and 7 at least 1000 times, their design was quite ‘slippery’. The XR is much better.
I got them all new from the phone carrier, and pretty much kept the same monthly plan for all this time (that I needed anyway, so I didn’t sign a more expensive contract just to pay less for the phone). They are less and less subsidised now though, so I will probably pay more when I upgrade.
I agree with @bzerk86, if you can afford them and like them/need them, then they are worth it. From my experience, you pretty much know what to expect in terms of durability and usability when you get an iPhone. Apple does screw up from time to time, but in my case it was never bad enough for me to even consider leaving the ecosystem. So far at least.March 1, 2020 at 2:36 am #25651
