There’s no denying Apple’s iPhone X is beautiful, though a bezel-less shade is costing not usually a association big, though a sourroundings too. Nathan Rousseau Smith (@FantasticMrNate) reports.
Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) launched a long-anticipated iPhone X final Friday, and doctrinaire fans lined adult to explain a priciest iPhone ever. However, Ebates’ latest holiday survey indicates that direct for device varies widely between adults and teenagers in a U.S.
Most adults surveyed preferred Samsung‘s (NASDAQOTH: SSNLF) Galaxy S8 as a holiday present instead of a iPhone 8, 8 Plus, or X. However, many teenagers adored a iPhone X and iPhone 8 over a other dual phones.
That disproportion is surprising, given adults have some-more spending energy than teens. An unbarred Galaxy S8 costs $720-$750; the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus start during $699 and $799, respectively; and a iPhone X starts at $999.
But there are other considerations. The S8 still offers a headphone jack and a fingerprint scanner — renouned facilities a iPhone X lacks. Yet trend-conscious teenagers don’t seem to care.
Piper Jaffray’s latest teen survey found that 82% of teenagers design their subsequent phone to be an iPhone, adult from 81% in a spring. That faithfulness should insist good into adulthood, as Apple thatch them into a iOS ecosystem.
