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

Postby Rock1987 » 09 Oct 2017, 11:24

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 .

Haha , I can earn that in less than three months if I get a real job. I can also reach that amount faster if I do article writing

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.
