is this talking use, or capacity? Because iPhones bottom out at 16GB. There's no "or less".

People who buy overpriced electronics with limited utility when perfectly acceptable alternatives exist for less demonstrate a lack of practical economic understanding. Of course they're not wealthy, unless they have a specific talent they get paid far too much for. Most people tend not to.

Apple devices are symbol of status for poor people.

It's obvious that poor people are willing to sell their food stamps just to get their hands on a new iPhone.

i cant imagine what would you use 16gb for... just keep pictures/videos in cloud, no need to have hundreads of them on your phone...

same goes for music having 1000+ tracks that you maybe listen once a year seems dumb, music streaming seems much more preferable at this age

This. Owning a iPhone is the new generations version of owning the latest pair of Jordans.

and just like how people would go out and buy Jordans despite not playing Basketball at all, people buy an iPhone and use it for none of the benefits a smartphone can offer. If they really did care, an iPhone would be the last thing they'd be considering.

I have a 32GB Zenfone 5 with a 32GB TFLASH
the internal 32gb can be completely used to install programs unlike Samshit which limits the amount of onboard for apps.

The zenfone 5 supports at least 128gb Tflash cards too.

iPhone market share is an order of magnitude greater than Jordan marketshare. Jordans were exclusive to black people. If you think iPhones aren't the "default" phone for most Americans then you're delusional.
>>
>>45720432
Obviously. The thing is white people have a hard on for appropriating black culture, so in recent years it's become commonplace for whites to act as blacks do, and that includes being broke as fuck and buying shit they have no purpose buying.
iPhones are the default for everyone because all cultures are going down the self destructive route that black people have had for years. You'll also notice more white people buy air jordans, listen to hip hop, and drink 40s now.

In the next few months as you acclimate to 4chan's "culture" you'll notice that mods enforce certain rules strictly and other rules very very loosely.

On the whole, the rules are in place to give mods justification for banning people they don't like. If nobody reports you and/or the mods don't mind, the rules basically don't exist.

Point being, don't go running like a bitch to the rules; they're not real.

I'm not likening this to being a badass (or even a delusional badass as your suggestion seems to imply). I'm just too jaded from experience to take the rules at face value, and you'd do well not to place undue faith in them.

Report posts if you want, but trust me when I say that there are a lot of rules on the list that are just not enforced. It's like the bible - there's shit that says not to eat meat on fridays, but most self-identifying christians do it anyway.

>>
>>45719658
All that says is that iPhones are expensive. We already knew that. Seems like you think it means iOS is <80% of the high end market, but that's just not how that graph works, it wouldn't add up. To make any sense of this graph you'd need to know what worldwide market share each OS has, otherwise it's useless.

How Can Mods Be Real If Our Rules Aren't Real

god what has happened to /g/. i've been here for two years and only in the past maybe four months have I seen a huge decline in the culture here. it went from the culture that got me into linux and ricing my android, etc. to either praising apple or bashing apple.

nothing else.

this is /technology/ not /consumer technology shilling/

it's like /b/ for "techies" now
>>
>>45721055
There are lots of threads other than the Apple-centric ones. You're just spending all your time rehashing the same old argument.
>>
>>45721073

Actually this is the first time I've posted my opinion on this. I guess I did exaggerate - there are a lot of other threads, it's just obvious that pointless threads like these are definitely on the rise.

/g/ isn't finished yet, but there's been a shift in the culture. It's becoming obvious that the culture here is changing as 4chan gets more exposure and more normalfags visit the site.
>>
>>45721055
>ricing my android
You really think that's any better than Apple threads?
>>
>>45721133
/g/ has been bitching and trolling about Apple for more than 4 years. Trust me, I've been here way longer than any sane person would have stuck around. Nothing has changed.
>>
>>45718543
not even apple fags are dumb enough to pay a fucking huge premium for few extra gigabytes.

It's all a matter of personal needs, Anon.

Some people need to be spoonfed and tracked.

Others don't.

>>45721169
If you don't want to be tracked, start using burners. They can still track your android at a hardware level even if with your custom rom.
>>
>>45721141
Yes because it has actual technology about it not just muh product is more expensive and hurr everyone is poor but me because muh Apple Tart syndrome

They make android burners nowadays. As long as you don't hook a google account up to it, you'll still be way more anonymous than using any one phone for an extended period.

Yeah, Apple (and most phone manufacturers, for that matter) price storage tiers stupidly. But I'm a Onepleb One user, so my opinion means nothing.

/g/ has always been shit. IMO this entire year and half of last year have been the worst so far. Shit posting on an epic scale, Mac leaping into acceptable across the board, seemingly much greater number of non-tech savvy people. I'm only here for the boredom and occasional gold that seeps out.

I have a 16GB 6 and have no trouble with storage. Would it be nice to have an SD cslot? Sure, but I don't moan about it. I place 5-6 iTunes playlists on the phone, a few movies and several docs, and use Google Drive for other stuff. Phone storage will be redundant in a couple years as everything will be in the cloud with unlimited data anyway.

>>45720588
Thats a few megabytes at most.
Vectors + metadata + shitty lmz compression = no data used

It also doesn't help that 200-300 pictures is half a gigabyte of data, and nobody takes more than 1000-200 pictures, and thats less than the 10GB of data.
>>
I actually keep my iPhone 6 Plus pretty clean. I have all my shit in iCloud, so I'll just stream it if need be.

I also take pictures about once every century, so 16 GB is never a problem. As of now, I have about 8 GB used (including the OS).
