On my personal note, I completely find apple as a status symbol and an average working man couldn't afford this just for this sake of status. There is neither enhancement nor benefits with it in our lives. The price list of all the phones of apple are completely ridiculous. Sparing such high amount just for the sake of a mobile phone? Oh My God! I can't imagine thinking of it that a person could ever waste huge amount of money just and just for the brand name APPLE. Instead, we have better designs with the same and exact features like an apple phone in Samsung and Sony. I sometimes even find Sony a bit expensive and I always affix myself to Samsung. It has got a very better features and performance for a phone for its actual sense. 'Developing technology', yes I admit this but this technology can't always be in terms of price. There are still many average classes whose income is still not in a developing state and keeping aside an ample amount of money for a phone is not possible with many. So I find Samsung as a better brand to hang out with.
