notafanboy, 07 Jun 2023I don't get it. If the Xiaomi 13 Ultra releases at a price of €1299, then what about the ... moreIt has launched for €1,500 in Europe today. It was never going to launch for less than or the same price as the 13 pro
Bodygard, 07 Jun 2023Ok, they go ahead then and charge much more and see the results: fail in Europe.
They have 2 ... moreYou're right, after this valuation of devices from China in Europe, the thought arises that they think we are morons meanwhile, we have a lot of competition here at the same level or better.
The only thing they can tempt the customer with is a lower price, and they don't even do that
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2023Check out the used prices of the 12S Ultra on a well known online marketplace, selling for £60... moreNo heart, just both of these companies have a long tradition of good quality products, which can't be said about all the Asian ones where sometimes it is hit or miss or phone support dies after premiere.
Even big companies are to blame in the past who got seriously f up for example is reason why LG disappeared from the market and HTC berly keep it together.
So far, Motorola is making good changes and is slowly returning to the premium segment and maybe in a few years it will regain trust, apart from that there is only Samsung and Apple
CJ, 10 Jun 2023Will this come out in America? Or will I have to buy the EU Version with Global ROM? Before buying, check if the antennas have all the transmission bands in your region because from what I found,in my country lacks a few basic ones that make this phone an expensive paperweight
I mention this because the global version may have different frequencies
Will this come out in America? Or will I have to buy the EU Version with Global ROM?
Check out the used prices of the 12S Ultra on a well known online marketplace, selling for £600 - £650
Sure the price for the 13 Ultra is too high when you look at the depreciation compared to Apple & Samsung, but Apple & Samsung people aren't going to buy the 13 Ultra in the first place, it's a purchase you make with your heart not your head
Saying that, I had an iPhone 14 Pro and changed to a 13 Ultra I got brand new for £829 from that same marketplace :-)
notafanboy, 07 Jun 2023"€650, max."
€650 for the best cameraphone on the planet? Peak delusion right there. It's going to drop value like a rock. Within a year it'll cost €500.
It's a great phone, no doubt. The best? Arguable, but up there. However, it is still not Apple or even Samsung to command outrageous prices. It needs to have perfect hardware AND software, with 5 years of updates.
Maybe I would go as high as €750, but higher than that is way too much.
Hope for a flat 14 Ultra
JayRoar, 07 Jun 2023Thats the same price as my s23u 12/256. But i still want it as my secondary phone. Im torn be... moreIf for gaming poco F5 will save you a few hundred of bucks and i bet the experience will be pretty similar.
notafanboy, 07 Jun 2023"€650, max." €650 for the best cameraphone on the planet? Peak delusion right there. How is he being delusional? Cheap, maybe, lol. I personally wouldn’t pay more than €651, which is roughly $700.
Anonymous, 07 Jun 2023You want 899 euros in Europe when it costs more than this in China? Ok, they go ahead then and charge much more and see the results: fail in Europe.
They have 2 options: either the price comes down or keep these prices and don't sell.
