Xiaomi: With fat hardware bundles you make fun of Apple

The Apple iPhone XS Max is expensive - even for Apple standards. Xiaomi makes fun of it now by offering a package with the Mi 8 and some additional hardware for the same price.

€ 1 649 - that's the price you pay for the Apple iPhone XS Max, if you decide on the largest possible version. That's a lot of wood - even for a company like Apple, which we're used to in the high-priced area. The fans are still eager, as expected.

However, it was also to be expected that the rest of the world will work on these high prices, no matter if it is people who make fun of it or echauffieren about it and we from the writing guild watch the price development at the company from Cupertino very attentive in this days.

Why I am not buying a new iPhone for the first time 11 years ago

Apple unveiled new devices last Wednesday amid enormous media and public interest. Under the motto "Gather Round", the group then showed three new smartphone models and a new Apple Watch.

Also we could not resist completely and published before the Keynote a summary of the rumors . The rumor mill was not really wrong. So the group showed the iPhone Xs , the iPhone Xs Max and the iPhone Xr , this came the Apple Watch Series 4 . We have already thought about the names elsewhere - nicely worded -.

Comment: We urgently need smartphones with even more cameras

Supposedly brings Samsung Galaxy A9 Star / Pro in a few weeks, a smartphone with 4 (!) Back cameras. Will the madness ever end?

I am old. So old that when I was a puberty, I used to maul my first tenderly sprouting whiskers with a wet shaver that came out with a single blade. Some clever man then came up with the idea that shaving becomes much more thorough when you use two blades instead of one.

The things sold like sliced ​​bread, until at some point someone had an insane inspiration: Let's try it with three blades. Today, many men shave with razors that rely on a system with five blades and there are even more exotic providers with even more blades.
