Allow me to retort...No one is artificially jacking up prices. You said it yourself... its an economic downturn. We're in a pandemic with global shortages. That's what happens to prices. Besides all that, no one even comes close to the incentives Samsung dishes out for their pre-orders.
And get over it with the SD card. No one will listen to your whines. Equalizer for savvy consumers? Lmao. With that mentality no one would've bought an iPhone. If you can't afford the new phone keep your mouth shut and stop spewing bs.
Tried to show some respect but now that it's pretty clear you're trolling, I'll respond accordingly.
You failed to address the availability issue. It was an issue 2+ years and more so today. Those 512gb phones will be in short supply and in the market will bear inflated prices; supply and demand.
This wasn't how Henry Ford got rich and left his competition in the dust.
Smaller production runs add cost, take away overall value and reduce reliability. I know, I did this for decades. Larger production runs are far better, more profitable and cheaper to make... better for all.
Yeah it really sucks having a 1tb dual drive phone and ok, I'll rub it in since you started whining "troll" because you have no valid counterpoint.
Graciously accepting inferior products or policies only leads to a worse outcome for the people.
If you're a Samsung employee... remember LG
