Few questions to ponder for huawei haters in this forum:
1. If trump gets a better trade deal from China, would that automatically exonerate huawei of all these security threats posed by them???
2. When it actually happens, what would be your reaction???
3. If ip theft by Chinese companies is your real concern, then why are you not asking the question to trump administration - "why huawei alone? What about the likes of xiaomi, bbk sub brands Oppo/vivo/one plus??? Are they all saints?"
4. What is the real issue with China and huawei? Is it Trade imbalance? Or Security? They are both mutually exclusive. If security is an issue, what about ZTE?
Is the bigger picture really being looked at by trump supporters in this forum??? As a neutral person from a different country, it does not look like so to me.

Long story short, Huawei didn't build a color model to work with their imager.
IMX586 is already present in at least 2 Android phones that I am aware of.
1. Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro at $200
2. Honor View 20 at $500
brucemc said:No, we are not copying Apple in the naming. We named the larger version the "Plus", because it is obvious there is no other name it could be called. All trolls everywhere immediately began vehemently nodding their heads.
So you think Samsung "copied" the plus naming convention from Apple??? Samsung is using Plus in naming their devices for many years already. Samsung SII plus was released in 2013 - just to give an example. There are MANY more Samsung phones with plus naming convention, much before iPhone 6 plus came in late 2014. In fact, Samsung releases so many phones with so many names every year, it is very difficult to come up with a new name which does not have any resemblance to any of the existing Samsung phones. You can accuse ANY OEM of copying name from Samsung phones blindly and it would not be far off from the truth. To claim that Samsung is copying name from Apple is - pure ignorance and lack of knowledge.
Bad news for the 5 people using this iKnockoff.
I remember my Apple hater friend(who thinks he's the smartest person in the world) praised Windows Phones for intergrating XBox Live accounts.
Seriously though, Microsoft can still support and develop new phones even with 1% marketshare. They waved the white flag back when they had something like 5% marketshare. Apple never folded under this kind of pressure. Shows how feeble these companies really are.
1. Since when did Windows phones become knock offs?
2. Apple never gave up with 5% market share - true. But why would they give up when they have the most valuable TOP 5% of the market? And why shouldn't Microsoft give up when they had the least valuable bottom 5% of the market?
JWSC said:The epic economic mismanagement of the Indian economy continues. Apple needs to keep expectations low here for the foreseeable future.
I wonder what council member Rathin Roy uses for his personal mobile phone? Just wondering if it’s a ‘do as I say, not as I do’ scenario.foggyhill said:Modi is heading India towards authoritarianism and graft and corruption in India has been on the way up. So, that just means they want to be greased even harder.The Indian market is very heavily protected by tariffs which means Indians have to pay an exorbitant price for extremely shoddy goods (that's what the lack of competition means). Supposedly tariffs protect the small players but in fact its a gift to the big companies who have complete control of the Indian market and can charge whatever they want. Only the richest or the rich can afford the to buy the highest quality goods from all sources .darkvader said:India has an election coming up next year.Hopefully the people will realize what a horrible mistake they made with Modi, and toss him out.And I'm not talking about Apple here, I'm talking about how absolutely horrible he is for the country. Religious extremists do not belong in government, no matter what religion it is. And he's intent on wrecking the economy.
I am from India and I agree with the above comments. The larger question remains - Do majority of Indians understand this? I don't know an answer to that question right now. We will come to know about it in another 8 months (May-2019 elections). Our PM Modi has been a divisive force, so I won't be surprised if some of the long timers (AnantKSundaram, BestKeptSecret etc) from India in this forum disagree with me and above comments.
We (people of India) are a long way to go in terms of maturity in upholding/implementing the spirit of democracy. Recently our Supreme court made very good verdicts on contentious issues (decriminalizing homosexuality, adultery as crimes), but MAJORITY of the people are criticizing the Supreme Court, without even understanding what the cases were about and what was the rationale behind SC's verdict. So it is going to be a long journey towards change for the better in my country.

cornchip said:knowitall said:In what way is Samsung a customer of Apple?
I think his question is - Apple is a customer of Samsung since Apple is buying components from Samsung. What is that Samsung is buying from Apple that Samsung can be considered as a customer of Apple?

"Apple is too expensive"
But criticizes Apple for not adding more to the XR. Like how it needs a 1080p screen(for some reason), OLED etc. which would drive the price much higher.
So you're asking for more? iPhone XR starting at $899? Better idea?
iPhone XR is the most popular iPhone right now(according to APPLE not the Verge or some fat youtuber). So not sure why you're denying the facts while giving your opinions?
Disagree with what I say and need proof??? Don't look anywhere beyond last quarter original/revised guidelines, Apple CEO's letter to investors, unusual heavy promotions this year which was NOT seen in previous years.
So the customers have spoken. If you ran Apple, guidance would have been much worse since you believe Apple should have erased most of their XR profit.
"iPhone 5c is a failure" deja vu?
"Xr outsold the other X models" - It is pure PR talk, which doesn't mean much. With its lower price compared to Xs and Xs Max, It was obvious from the beginning that Xr would outsell Xs and Xs Max. That is besides the point. The key questions are:
1. What was the expected total number of Xr units that Apple expected to sell during the Oct-2018 to Dec-2018 quarter?
2. Did it meet those Apple's own expectations (Not some random analysts or internet blogger's expectations)????
Customers have spoken? Really? Then, why did Apple miss "its own guidance"????
1st said:Ha, Qcom want to set standard for 5G? without Apple on board, even it is set a standard, not enough string to pull for such money mine (like VZ CDMA, on its way out eventually). Apple better learn the lesson (fool me once... ). Besides, for what ever the reason, Qcom design is usually power hungry compare to the others (just my personal observation, could be wrong), that would impact 5G a lot (unless they don't want backward compatible or reuse some of their prior block...;-).
