Tim Cook "couldn't be happier" with iPhone 8 sales

One of the first customers to buy the new Apple iPhone 8 poses at Dubai Mall Apple Store in Dubai, on September 23, 2017.br / The new Apple iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, as well as the updated Apple Watch and Apple TV, went on sale today.

Indeed, it's been a busy week for Apple AAPL and those who follow the company, and a recap is in order. Here's last week's roundup. "The Huawei phone provides exactly what I want at a very reasonable price", she said, adding that many of her friends who used to be iPhone users have adopted a similar "good enough" view rather than always seeking "super premium".

Displays of the five-month-old Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus deliver 1,000 nits while the Galaxy Note 8 nearly doubles the iPhone X with 1,200 nits. They're also more likely to discuss politics than their Android device-owning counterparts.

The problem is especially acute for the two traditional iPhones hitting the market this year, the iPhone 8 and the larger 8 Plus, which are priced at $699 and up and will begin shipping this Friday. That means Apple will make a profit of $418 excluding the cost of things like assembly, marketing, and employee salaries. For example, better specifications, camera, and their new and improved operating system iOS. The launch went off without any problems and delivered to iPhones and iPads several new features, including improvements to apps like Mail and Maps.

Should Apple be anxious about this relative lack of interest? So from my opinion, if you are going to buy the iPhone 8 or 8 Plus, then it will be better to go for the iPhone X. And here's a roundup of Apple Watch Series 3 reviews.

There is also another big problem for Apple and their legion of loyal fans, the device has limited network frequencies which means the device could have problems in Australia on a 5G network, for example if you are in the US you will struggle to get traction on T Mobiles brand new multi-billion-dollar 600MHz "Extended LTE" network.

According to Engadget, the iPhone 8 is missing those vital components, so Apple is throttling speeds down to 400Mbps. Sales and demand for the iPhone 8 appear to be lower than expected, and KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo thinks customers are more interested in buying an iPhone X, despite its lofty price tag. Will you be pre-ordering the iPhone X? In other words, just because it may be more hard to fix a modern iPhone shouldn't be seen as a knock against the overall durability and robustness of the device when used over a number of years.
