    If apple decides to sell shit it will be a huge product. I mean Apple rally hasn't innovated since past 3-4years,yet they rake in billions. Apple is a status symbol. It is a decent phone, there are decent Android phone that outperforms apple but Android phones are useful to masses.

    I don't think Samsung is copying; instead they have been giving customers options and lead time to get used to the wireless future. Wired options: micro-sd card slot, 3.5mm jack, free AKG headphone, DeX, UFS 3.0, OTG connectivity Wireless options: (reverse) wireless charging, Samsung Pay, free Galaxy Buds with phone purchase, Bluetooth 5.0, LDAC, 5G, Wifi 6, Whereas Apple just leave customers with no other choice but pay the premium.

    My AirPods died in the middle of the video so I did what any reasonable person would do and bought another pair


    Can't wait for headphone jacks to have a comeback and then we're gonna have a big audiophile trend with devices

    Phone companies : let’s wait to see what apple does before we design. Apple: Y’all so silly

  • Interesting

    No one gives a fuck about wireless, these companies are simply just realizing that most Apple users are dumb sheep. Sure, there's nothing wrong with a wireless future, but come the fuck on. You really think that's why the axed the headphone jack and introduced AirPods? AirPods are literally one of the dumbest and laziest designs for a wireless earphone to date. Most importantly, if you lose one of them (which is VERY easy to do) then good luck shelling out the money for a replacement (sounds familiar? *cough* dongles) I believe companies are just in awe of the sheer stupidity of most Apple customers, especially in the face of a blatant rip off. These consumers will gladly spend money to fix a problem that the company literally CREATED themselves (first, with no headphone jack, and now with EarPods). The majority of Apple consumers are literally causing the shift in practice of other phone companies - now EVERYONE wants a chance at blatantly taking intelligence of their customers for granted to make a size-able profit.

    Again apple leads the way lol no matter how much they try to be different than apple their still the same. Secretly there designers are in awe of the hardware.

  • corruptkode

    Because it's old tech dressed up as new tech that's cheap and sold so grossly overpriced someone can copy it, sell it, and undercut apple and still make huge profits. That's why.

    No matter how good these other products are etc... Apple will always come on too and there’s no denying it. There’s nothing more then the rush of pride of owning an Apple product from the Apple pens to Apple cases etc... Apple is and will most likely always dominate the world

    My Airpods Pro clones (there's a fake serial number as well and no sign of name of that company) round better than some well known competitors and serve the purpose of stealing attention.

    This Iphone 6 owner left Apple because they Apple decided to rip off customers as you say by just removing a feature and charging us to fix it. Screw Apple.


    Everyone copying airpods? The gear Xs came out 2 years before the airpods 🤔

  • Root_Login

    I'm surprised to see Anker didn't get a mention especially with their Liberty 2 Pro and Liberty Air 2 models, coupled with their Soundcore app are the best on the market for the price!
