Goldman Sachs analyst confirms $1,000 price tag for Apple iPhone 8

Early in February, a source claiming to have some inside knowledge about Apple's purported ten-year anniversary handset, said that the so-called Apple iPhone 8 would carry a rather hefty price tag. According to this "insider," the Apple iPhone 8 will be priced at $1,000. Considering the rumored technology said to be on board the device, this might not seem so crazy...

"All my major apps I use opened faster on the s8." Which apps? What do you think about these 2 videos? https://youtu.be/-pFpv0Im1UY https://youtu.be/LdAgbj9c6l0

Hey dumb dumb! How much time did you spend searching for those videos? Check out XEETECHCARE YouTube channel, you'll find disappointment there, especially with the real life battery drain videos! Don't get your feelings hurt.

Nobody uses a phone that way in the first video above. If you use an iPhone get the new galaxy. Open basic apps side by side and come back and tell me which opened faster.

Wow.. Unlike the glass toys S8/S8+ these are real tech people can rely on 24/7. I'd pay that $1000 very happily because I know there isn't anything yet to come even close to the quality of the iPhone. Sorry Samsung you don't get my vote this time. Your curves are nice but you are still laggy and pathetic just like ever before. Oneplus 5, HTC 11, LG G6, LG V20, P10, Oneplus 3T, Pixel X/XL All these are way better than S8/S8+ this year.

You must wake up in the middle of the night hyperventilating and bathed in sweat screaming, "SAMSUNG!!!!!!!" I'm going to recommend you don't do a Google search of "smartphones ranked." It's only going to make the night terrors worse.

After working retail and selling iPhones I would never own one, they are low quality junk compared to most flagship Android phones. They are cheaply made to maximize profits. Shouldn't bend a phone removing it from it's case, shouldn't have a screen lifting out of the phone, shouldn't have charge ports and other hardware failure on a regular basis, and they shouldn't crash and brick during updates. Lets not forget the recalls and battery problems either.

That's pathetic although I wouldn't be surprised if it was just a marketing stunt

So either they sell a mediocre phone at flagship prices, or they make a flagship phone and jack the price up beyond the competition? Gotta keep those profit margins.
