Well that's because Android phones cater to a wide range of price brackets. Your wife might have bought a mid-range phone with limited capabilities. High end Android phones outperform the iPhone in functionality and versatility and are very much geared toward power users and the tech-savvy.
Let's revive this thread. The latest phone that will soon be released on the market anytime soon is the Samsung Galaxy F. Your typical smartphone which has the folding feature, a first of its kind. However, it might have limited availability due to manufacturing reasons, and rumor has it that it will come at a hefty $2000 price tag.
I agree with this. With flagships costing $650, in about 2 years after using it, the general price people sell them for is $250. That's around a loss of $400. With a midrange $250 phone, they sell it for like $125 after using it for 2 years.
I am a fan of Android phones right from time and that is what I am currently using. iPhones are awesome but I will rather go for a Samsung phone instead and I can't wait to see the latest version that Samsung is about to produce. I am sure it will be awesome with some new features, a better camera and a lasting battery.
