No sh*t. Smartphones have been a thing for over a decade now, it's a matured market. This is just basic product life cycle stuff.
Everybody who wanted one got one by now. Few innovations, few reasons to upgrade. Luxury and replacement buys are the main drivers of sales now.
Most these phones overpowered for about 90% of users anyways. n*ggas walking around with the processing power of a low end laptop in their pockets and only use the sh*t to send text messages to ho's. Why upgrade unless your sh*t breaks?
Sales for most electronics have been going down for years: PC's and laptops, TV's for a long while till 4k and Smart TV's got introduced, the tablet market has also plummeted. Gaming consoles only market still popping on such old hardware. Unless you're XBOX....nobody buys those
Lol you wrote that long a*s reply just for that Xbox ether lmao

the phone game in general has been dry the last couple years

a lot of people just sticking with their old phone at this point. they arent obsolete no reason for people to upgrade

i see a lot of people with iphone 7 still, even people who have money and could get the new sh*t if they wanted.

getting a new phone doesnt seem as exciting to people as it used to

They were letting their nuts hang too hard they literally made the x super obtainable by dropping a billion I phones esp with android phones getting more lit at lower price points lol

Resale value still holding but I see prices dropping in the near future for all phones with 5g phones coming to market

Def want a XR for the low

Well I guess demand would slow down if you're charging $800-1000 for a new phone. Apple isn't the only one with this problem either. I noticed some of these other companies like LG are charging $700 - 800 for their phones when I went to T-Mobile.

i carry a galaxy s8 and a iphone 8 everyday

and by far prefer my iphone

but these prices are getting ridiculous
Why do you prefer the iPhone? Just curious

I carry a P2XL and a iPhone7+. I HATE using the iphone for anything other than Apple music. The web browsers are worse, the fu*king vibrate switch gets caught on my jean pockets when I pull my phone out, charging is slow, WiFi drops all the time, and all the iPhone Keyboards are TERRIBLE

I had a 6s & just recently upgraded to a XS Max. Definitely a big improvement but I won’t be upgrading for at least 3 years maybe 4. Another thing to is most people don’t realize that when making monthly payments on a phone you lease it has no effect on your credit what so ever unless u stop paying & they put you in collections & negatively impact your credit. So u mine as well buy the phone out with a credit card & make payments so your credit will go up. Just free game for my box fam

sh*t I don't use iPhone but I'm still on a Samsung Galaxy 5, with no need or plan to upgrade soon


They treating these phones like retros.......come out with some sh*t that's been out, make one slight change, charge 100s more.

Until sh*t pops out on your phone in 3D, all these phones really have lost their allure.

I'm still holding onto my S8 and will probably wait for the S10 or Note 10. Phones have been designed so well lately that they will easily last you 2 to 3 years.
Agreed. I was one of those who upgraded annually but still rocking my galaxy s8 plus

Part of the reason I'm really only considering OnePlus & Motorola Z devices these days, but even OnePlus getting bold on the prices now.

My iPhone battery life is better

My iPhone is faster when it comes opening apps

I use chrome internet on both phones
