as long as corporate executives exist, the prices of topend mobiles will continue to skyrocket, the specs are extremely good but the price clearly removes all upto high income group from purchases. only corporates can purchase and there is no dearth of them, after all they don’t pay from their pockets. their companies will foot the bill and that means shareholders money!
