I won’t buy this iPhone, it’s just way too much. Good for people who have money to throw around.
But I will say this: Apple makes great products. My macbook is four years old and still runs like new. Used an iPhone 5 for four years and it was great right up to the end. Have a 7 now and will use it for at least four years, too (maybe more since the pace of improvement is slowing).
I’m sure Android phones are great too… have never owned one. I can say for sure I’m damn sick of Windows laptops (which I must use for work) that get so bloated and slow after just a year or two, despite being very expensive in their own right (the Lenovo ultrabook I use costs around $1500).
Apple products can be really economical if you use them for a long time. They last forever, get all the new software updates, and never start feeling slow. Also have great resale value. I sold my iPhone 5 for $200 when it was four years old. I was amazed by that.
