iPhone XS

American manufacturing giant, Apple, has had a hard time selling its 2019 iPhones because they lack “real” innovation and are pretty expensive. Even the “cheap” iPhone XR costs $749 which can get you a top-class flagship Android phone. In order to boost sales, Apple reduced the prices of the iPhones although analysts believe that this is only a temporary solution to Apple’s poor sales. In China, multiple online stores are activating price cuts for the 2019 iPhones.

    Still too expensive by far. Why enter the walled garden of Cupertino anyway?
