£999 for a phone. What is the world coming to? Absolutely ludicrous.

OP, well done for trying anyway and sacrificing the heat/cold to help out a few who couldn’t get theirs on launch day. It was obvious this thread was going to bring out the bitterness of those who can’t/won’t buy one and the ‘why spend £1k on a phone’ crew. Well I’d answer that as a productivity tool, a phone pays for itself many times over, possibly more than a laptop in that respect due to portability.

Paying for the phone outright makes more sense anyway, not everyone has a contract to upgrade and not everyone wants it on credit (and probably shouldn’t anyway).

That's the way it's going for these high end phones unfortunately. Apple and Samsung take it in turns creeping the price up so that most people only compare it to the previous year's prices and think "oh, it's only a little bit more."

Samsung will no doubt set the first £1k mainstream Android phone (excluding the likes of Vertu here) with the Galaxy S9 and the Note will probably dip into four figures.

As long as people keep paying these prices, they will continue sneaking them a little higher each time to test the limit.

Edit: I'm talking about base models here btw, I know there are larger-storage variants over £1K

Not a deal. This is the RRP. £999 for a phone is crazy.

I just do not understand the point of paying that price for a device that will probably be replaced in a year or so. It is laughable.

Baaaa

Probably only had a couple now out of stock

Pay £1k for a phone seriously

You could buy an xbox one x, laptop, tablet and a decent Android phone and still have change from £1000. Just put it in context apple buyers!

Again, heat from me.

Bring on the iPhone X ‘deals’ I say.

The comments with peoples views on the price, or their opinions on Apple, are entertaining to say the least....even though any iPhone X deal is guaranteed to be covered in snow.

Winter is coming.

It makes me laugh when people say ‘£1000 just for a phone’. It’s not just a phone though is it, in fact the phone part is probably it’s legacy feature. Yes it’s expensive, but technology isn’t cheap and there’s too many people expecting the the latest advancements for 2005 prices. Have some heat OP.

Inflation... maybe £10 phone and Tablet - better choice ? Or good laptop

That's exactly what it is, a phone like any other apple or androod phone.

Thanks ordered 20

In contrast though, the LG G6 deal for £350 is scorching hot and that's just as capable a 'productivity tool' as the iphone is. Don't get me wrong, the X is a very nice phone and I was tempted for a while but it's both too expensive to justify the cost and I know I'd miss Android again. Every time I've bought an iphone it's not lasted more than 6 Months before I went back to Android. There's nothing bad about them, it's just a matter of preference.

Anyone who doesn't think £1k is too much for a phone is either delusional, desperately trying to justify their cost, blinkered by hype or has enough disposable income that it means nothing to them. I sent the Galaxy S8+ back because I couldn't justify spending £779 on a phone that didn't do much different from my Pixel XL. I'm not even interested in the current Android flagships because I believe they're all overpriced too (not to mention the V30 and Pixel XL 2 have terrible screens).

The problem is that this isn't £500 more advanced than all the £500 handsets on the market. What does this have that the majority of £500 phones do not have because I'm not seeing a reason to spend double??

That's not the comparison though is it? Don't be disingenuous. The competition is much more than £500. What is that extra money going on? Software updates for at least 5 years, excellent warranty where you can take your phone into an Applestore and get a replacement same day. Just these two factors alone are why people go iPhone.

Think 1k for a phone which has an unbreakable screen and battery that lasts a week is a good deal..... Oh wait no it's as brittle as a £100 phone and has same battery life lol

Its exactly the comparison, Samsung s8 note and this both at ridiculous prices when you consider the near identical features you find in £500 phones.

Software updates for 5 years? 90% of phone owners upgrade every 1 or 2 years

Warranty only good for one year, if you want that premium Apple customer service after that you have to pay MORE money for Apple care

Got a source for that 90% BS figure? Also, that doesn't take the point away, you can still buy 2nd hand iPhones knowing they'll be supported for years to come. Apple abide by the consumer rights act. You don't need to buy Applecare.

Totally agree, I jumped ship from the Flagship phone game at the beginning of the year and bought a £200 Lenovo P2. As far as productivity goes for me its better than the current flagships even with its midrange specs as i get a real world 3 day battery life (5100Mah battery) and as it's dual sim I'm not carrying both a work and personal phone around with me....

The only people spending £1k on an iPhone X are more bothered about people seeing them with the latest iPhpne than 'productivity'.....

You had me until the point where you started calling everyone who does buy one delusional, etc. This is about as blinkered as Donald Trump’s black and white view on the world.

I’d agree the LG G6 is a good option but it’s more mid range by now. I bought my Dad a Samsung Note 8 and that cost £750, a much closer comparison. I am putting the X through the business so the VAT will be reclaimed anyway and the cost will be sunk there. There’s no delusion involved, trust me - as someone who carries two phones, one of which is a Sony Xperia, I get my Android fix and like the flexibility it brings - between that and the iPhone, I’ve covered most of my bases. I tried to use a Samsung S7 Edge for my daily phone and it broke after 2 months, freak incident but still, I was glad to switch back to an iPhone as it just worked reliably.

This is definitely a case of, to each their own. And your argument applies in reverse as well. I generally wouldn’t call someone out for skimping on a phone and say, going on holiday instead, unless they’d already told me the same. Constant bickering from the same people about phone price just comes across as bitterness - it doesn’t matter if the phone is a status symbol, a productivity device, personal or work or if bought on contract

LOL, like samsung phones have not had all this phones technology for ages

Good to see Apple take the lead again, though yes the price is a shock. Will be a few years until Samsung, LG etc catch up with some of the tech in the X according to tech analysts.

Word of warning to anyone jumping on the X though, enjoy it, but keep in mind it may feel a bit like a beta device on occasion. Most developers simply aren't going to update their apps for it until they see greater saturation, so you could be looking well into late 2018 until your fav apps look halfway decent.

That said, it is a cool device and does push the boundaries. X buyers are funding the drive for the 9/9+ users to get some of this tech (but definitely not all) next year, so good on them.

For non-Apple users, they should be pleased too - Apple is about to make wireless charging and facial recognition for purchases normative within the next few years. All that irritating password nonsense is going. Can't wait personally.
