    Good News.

    Apple’s iPhone Woes Continue In Q2 2019 As Revenue Is Down By 5%
    The company’s been seeing ‘tough’ times lately, as the company has struggled to justify its high prices and brand image to customers in China and India. Its iPhone upgrade cycles have slowed down, and despite the launch of the iPhone XR last year, Apple has been unsuccessful to reduce the duration of this cycle. As a result, the company is now focusing on services and is upgrading its product portfolio across the line.

    I'm glad most people are opening their eyes about the smartphone world and being smart about making their smartphone purchases. I'm not bias to only one brand as I am a phone geek. I'm currently using a Palm PVG100 on T-Mobile. I love this cute phone.

    High storage capacity are still the same, just 2$ off plus you need to pay some cash to store to get exclusive support since we don't have Apple Store in India.
    At the price of iPhone XR I can get iphone 8/8+ 128/256GB.

    But India gets only pathetic Intel modem.... I might try ebay or even buy Nokia 6.1 and Pixel 4/whatever w/o notch botch. I grabbed P2XL at the wrong time since its stopped manufacturing while P3XL has been slashed by 100$ on top end model and 200$ on 64GB models. But 4GB isn't enough on Android that too with advanced Pixel Camera hardware and software 6GB is recommended.
    I can switch out the RAM from 4GB to 8GB using either Micron or Sammy but TITAN M security chip will prevent non-authorised parts from booting the device or even running for 24/7 stability. That's the reason I opted for P2XL JB color, after hearing the discontinued notice and slashed prices of P3, I decided to hold off and use mid-range phone for few months rather than use inferior phone that'll cause more headaches in the long run!
    If I get a Qualcomm model of iPhone then I'm buying it or otherwise.

    Apple likes to claim that buying an iPhone means buying into an ecosystem where user data is sacrosanct. An examination by the Washington Post demonstrates that the reality is quite a different picture.

    Apple likes to claim the high moral ground no on user privacy and that may well be true when it comes to the data Apple collects from users. However, what Apple doesn’t make clear (they don't care) is that it doesn’t take the same level of care to protect the data that other apps collect about users and forward remotely in many cases without explicit user consent.

    Ohh... that's why I've been seeing 15GB usage on LTE as System service. I always Reset LTE stats thinking it was a bug.

    Apple know very what going out from your phone. You pay Apple a hell lot money for their so called "ecosystem where user data is sacrosanct (inviolable)". They should stop with their false claims. Because theiy aren't any better than the rest of the trash companies.

    I think this thread might be helpful http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/deep-clean-ios-devices-using-3utools-on-windows.827755/
    They're really worse than Google. They have our real time location eventhough location is disabled. With google Analytics Intelligence APIs handpicking people who use iPhones and finding them is lot easier which simply is against Apple's claims that we believe in human privacy.
    EDIT: I couldn't even pronounce sacrosanct. Damn...
