Some of these Chinese branded phones aren't knockoffs though and are legitimate competitors... Take Huawei, for example.
Word their focused on just giving you high quality products with longevity the same way they do in the car industry. While america wants to make sure planned obsolescence is apart of their whole scheme. People quick to try to discredit asian brands but our sh*t gets made by them remember where Hyundai/kia was 10-20 years ago and look at it now. You have a mini CPU in your pocket wtf else do you need. Most people don't even use most of the features any way.

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
Facts. The fact they still only report missed payments is the biggest scam out. If you need to check my credit to approve me you should also report that I pay on time

Word. Getting a locked phone unlocked by AT&T, T-Mobile, etc. is like pulling teeth. It also makes you be wary about purchasing used phones that are locked too because scumbag selling them before their contracts are up so you can't get them unlocked.

i carry a galaxy s8 and a iphone 8 everyday

and by far prefer my iphone

but these prices are getting ridiculous
What do you use each for? I can't imagine someone carrying an iPhone and Android but preferring iPhone. I always felt it was the other way around

What do you do for work that can't be done on an iPhone? Did your job give you an Android phone or are you paying for it yourself

Exactly! Apparently it’s always been like that. Rent A Center does the same sh*t

talking battery isn't bad at all

it may be me with apps in the background, it tells me all the time about apps running and i think i have the location thing on high and email every 10 or 15 check
i have the same thing tho... push notifications for emails and social media apps, no power saving features. i easily get nearly 5 hours of screen on time everyday.

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.
Got my S8 in 2017, and I'm gonna probably gonna jump at the s10. Wanted the Note 9, but decided to hold onto my phone a bit longer.

It's not that phone demands is decreasing it's these n*ggas release a new model every damn year. No phone is out of date after a year unless you skimmed on the features. n*ggas is starting to realize that now and updating every two or three years like it was before.

The new fico scores will reflect cellphone and apartment payments

It's called ficoxd

It's for people with Lil to no credit. Only a handful of creditors use it tho

This plus companies that charged full price for the phones fu*ked themselves I remember 200 bucks for a top phone with a 2 year contract. Now it's 2 year contract leasing to buy a phone or pay 800+ for a phone which is absurd.

buying it with a credit card at 20 % interest would be dumb. ALso it depends on what your credit limit is on the card, if you have a $1000 limit and you use all of it it will drop your credit quite a bit as you are at 100% usage. if you have a 0% interest credit card with nothing owed on it..have at it.

this will only help those that do not have a score ...and tbh it can also hurt them if they they make all of their cell phone payments late

I think all smartphone sales are declining. I wonder what is going to happen in 3-5 years
People just aren't annually upgrading anymore. Also when tax breaks are being given to the rich, us poor common folks can't afford a new iPhone especially when they removed the 2 year contract price. I used to get a new phone for 2-3 hundred dollars and now you have to pay 600 to a grand for a new phone.
