Haha, very funny. He doesn't care very much for Apple at all :D
There’s a lot of journalists and vloggers/bloggers who hate Apple because Apple don’t grease their palms, I’ve personally seen one journalist that used to like their products until he was left off their VIP list for a trip to Cupertino and getting freebie phones for evaluation and almost overnight he turned into a total hater.

Funny how he turned into a total Honor/Huawei lover after an all expenses trip to Berlin and a couple of freebie phones arrived for him. Now he writes almost exclusively pro Honor/Huawei stories as he gets invites to all their functions and gets lots of free phones... :rolleyes:

If you had the slightest idea of the money we used to spend (inviting journalists, influencers, officials and others) to the mobile congress in Barcelona every single year, your jaw would drop.

That's when I was working in telcos.

I do know, I used to work for one of the big telco companies (networks across many countries).

Is it only me that has no use whatsoever for any kind of video on my phone? And certainly not the massive memory drain required to store a few seconds of a 1080p video.
Besides it will happily play 1080p and probably 4K too without blinking.

It just won’t be natively at that resolution.

What do people think about the new prices, local preorder prices seem to show all the newly released models are between R20-R30k?

What would just the monthly all risks insurance on that be, something like R400 pm?

Spill the beans, the folks with R20k+ iPhones, do you insure them or go balls to the wall?

If you do insure how much is the premuim each month?
