Apple's product launches have long been full of surprises, but rarely has a price cut been among them. On Tuesday, in a sign that Apple is paying attention to consumers who aren't racing to buy more expensive phones, the company said the iPhone 11, its entry-level phone, would start at $700, compared with $750 for the comparable model last year. Apple kept the starting prices of its more advanced models, the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, at $1,000 and $1,100. The company unveiled the new phones at a 90-minute press event at its Silicon Valley campus. The cost cut on the iPhone 11 was unexpected because Apple had been raising prices each year as a way to keep revenues afloat while iPhone sales fell. But Apple might have hit the ceiling this past year. Sales of the two models that began at $1,000 or more lagged expectations, causing the company to cut revenue estimates and eventually slash prices in China to increase demand. At the same time, Apple's entry-level phone last year … [Read more...] about Apple event: iPhone 11, surprise price cuts, the Series 5 Watch

Samsung last week introduced five (!) new phones, including the Galaxy S10e. At $US750, the Galaxy S10e might seem like Samsung’s challenger to the iPhone XR, which has an identical starting price.

But in many ways, the Galaxy S10e feels more like Samsung’s version of Apple’s iPhone XS — but $US250 cheaper, of course. The Galaxy S10e looks almost identical to the $US1,000 iPhone XS. Both phones have a flat 5.8-inch OLED screen, which produces bright and crisp images.
