The new iphones are already shaping to be 2019 biggest flop. Announcing a phone 7 months after S10 and still not as innovative as s10, huawei mate 30pro etc

You misunderstood something, S10 is officially a flop. New iPhones will sell atleast 3-4 times more than S10.

That's because if you want an iPhone, then Apple already knows that they limit their customers iPhone choices. If the iPhone XR hardware was sold as an Android smartphone, then you couldn't get $400 USD brand new for that hardware. Apple already knows if you want a new iPhone that they purposely limit their customers choices, and they purposely jack up the prices for their iPhones.

And how about the difference between Note 10 and Note 10+?

I assume the S10 would have to meet some statistical threshold to be "officially a flop". That would be based on expected sales vs actual sales - both of which would be internal documents that we don't have access to. "Literally" "officially" - using those words without proof ruins a comment. Let's try to step out of high school.

The irony would be selling this iphone 11 in just a month would be sales of S10 in a year.

The analyst says that Apple could have scrapped the feature because the "charging efficiency may not meet Appleā€™s requirements." Sure... Other OEMs don't have 200000 Mah Battery, 500MP Camera, 8K 150Hz Display, 10G Network Modem, Vibranium Body, etc,. Because it may not meet their requirements.

It's a guy that Apple pays a few bucks to say this and that for them. Apple has a major crew of hype and propaganda support people.

Maybe you should make a few more disparaging comments about Samsung.

Looks like Apple managed to hurt the feelings of Samsung AND Apple fanboys this time. These comments are hilarious.
