    Hi, just a question, where do we see that the one plus one lost 95% of its value? They seem to be pretty expensive used

    I don't think anyone at all cares about selling it at the optimal time, when you pay $1400 for a $500 phone, you just want a seamless don't-bother-me experience. However, rich people do like dopamine and feeling good, so the idea would be based around the 2nd-hand sales.

    The i-phone is only a status symbol for late' drinking hipsters.And Apple: Selling yester-year's technology at tomorrow-year's prices.Why are apple-tards still a thing? Then I realize people ARE this stupid. This is why I want our reptilian alien overlords to enslave us.

    A thing's value is determined purely by how much poeple think it's worth. Flexphones lose less value just because people think they do. btw I'm not saying they don't and neither am I saying they do.

    If an iPhone cost 400 dollars to make than apple should sell it for like 600 to still make money.
