Re: Would you ever pay $1,000 for an iPhone?

I will not pay $1000 for any phone. If I become rich then I will think about buying $1000 iPhone.

Yep, now let's break that down into how many online tasks we'd need to do to pay for it. We should have one in about 20 years lol. :lol:

For me it would be lot lesser than 20 years but I would wait until they reduce the price to what it is actually worth. They are taking undue advantage of their brand popularity.

I would never pay that much money for a phone. I would (if i could afford it but I cannot right now) buy a phone with a plan (one of those two-year contract things) because you get a "free" phone out of it and you get the service .

Yeah, I might have exaggerated. Just a little. ;)

I still wouldn't give that much for it, just because it's supposedly some status symbol. I'd get a nice phone that does what I need it to do, at a reasonable price. I'm just not that bothered about having all the popular stuff. 1K could help feed some people... or something else that would make me feel happier than having a "cool" phone.

Being a simple guy, I am contented with a simple phone that has simple features just as long as it can be used for calling and texting it is fine with me... so I wouldn't buy that, there are many more important things to buy like..."What you need and not what you want..." :?:

Well said. Needs should always go before wants, if you ask me.

If that is what someone wants, and they can afford it, more power to them. Just not for me. I am still thinking of other things I'd rather spend that kind of money on.

If I had a lot of money, then sure. But we have to be more practical. Why spend a $1000 on something cheaper phones could also do.

Personally, I think that is a lot of money to give for a phone. But, if I had had that much money, then I wouldn't mind spending it on a good phone. iphones are definitely the best phones. Also I would love to have apple laptop.

There are other good quality and cheaper phones like Sony Xperia z5 and has an approximate value of 300-400 $. So I would not buy the iphone
