Samsung’s budget-friendly Galaxy S10e gives you more bang for the buck than the equivalent iPhone

Earlier this month I took a look at the Samsung Galaxy S10+, the most premium of the current Samsung phones, which are now available to buy. You should buy the Galaxy S10e instead. It also gives you more bang for the buck than Apple’s iPhone XR, which costs the same — the Galaxy s10e has a brighter screen, headphone jack and expandable storage. But at $750, and considering all that you get with the Galaxy S10e, I think Samsung’s found a nice sweet spot. In fact,Samsung is already seeing success

Samsung's budget-friendly Galaxy S10e gives you more bang for the buck than the equivalent iPhone

Earlier this month I took a look at the Samsung Galaxy S10+, the most premium of the current Samsung phones, which are now available to buy. It’s a very good phone that’s a perfect alternative to Apple’s iPhones, but it’s also expensive and starts at $999.

You should buy the Galaxy S10e instead.

Samsung didn’t cut many corners with this model, and it costs $250 less than the Galaxy S10+. It also gives you more bang for the buck than Apple’s iPhone XR, which costs the same — the Galaxy s10e has a brighter screen, headphone jack and expandable storage.

Samsung’s shipments were down last year, just like Apple’s, because people have shown they’re less likely to spend $1,000 on a new phone. But at $750, and considering all that you get with the Galaxy S10e, I think Samsung’s found a nice sweet spot. In fact,Samsung is already seeing success with Galaxy S10 orders.

Samsung will use the event to show how it plans to take on Apple’s latest batch of iPhones, including on price. Apple announced a more affordable iPhone XR this year, for example, which starts at $749. And both Samsung and Apple have struggled to keep consumers interested in their phones, as low-cost device makers including Huawei and Xiaomi continue to grow their market share. Samsung will need to wow consumers if it wants to retake that ground.

Rumors have suggested Samsung may also introduce a foldable phone called the Galaxy Fold. If it’s anything like a prototype Samsung showed off in November, it’ll act as a tablet that you can fold down into a device the size of a phone.

You can watch Samsung’s livestream to follow along with all of the announcements. The event begins at 2 p.m. Eastern.

Apple’s 2020 iPhones will likely get upgraded displays after the XR disappoints

Apple’s full line of 2020 iPhones are likely to get a display upgrade and ditch LCD completely, according to The Wall Street Journal.

But the phone, which was expected to be more appealing to budget-conscious shoppers with a price tag starting at $750 rather than $999 for the XS, has failed to meet sales expectations. Earlier this month, Apple published a letter to investors downgrading its guidance for its first quarter 2019 in light of weak iPhone sales, among other factors.

However, CEO Tim Cook told CNBC earlier this month that the XR has been Apple’s best-selling iPhone model since it launched last fall.

The cases are available in either black or white and can be purchased for the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR. They add battery life but make the phone a bit thicker. They also work with wireless chargers, so you can drop them on a charging pad to juice them up instead of plugging them in.

Apple says the iPhone XS case offers up to 21 hours of internet use or 25 hours of video playback, the iPhone XS Max case offers up to 20 hours of internet use or 25 hours of video playback, and the iPhone XR case offers up to 22 hours of internet use or 27 hours of video playback.

The cases can be ordered now and will be available in stores on Jan. 18.

Retailers are slashing iPhone prices across China as consumers say the phones aren’t worth the cost

Apple’s latest iPhone models are facing huge discounts in China as retailers try to sell the struggling devices.

Retailers are slashing iPhone prices across China as consumers say the phones aren't worth the cost

Apple’s latest iPhone models are facing huge discounts in China as retailers try to sell the struggling devices.

That comes as the top-of-the-line Apple smartphones have posted poor China sales on what experts say are too-high prices for the world’s largest smartphone market and a lack of innovative features compared to local competitors like Huawei. The technology giant itself acknowledged earlier this month that unexpectedly low sales in the Chinese market would likely lead to worse-than-anticipated first quarter revenues.

One of the most recent iPhone cost cuts in the country came from Suning, a large Chinese retailer, which changed the price of the 128GB version of the iPhone XR from 6,999 yuan ($1,036) to 5,799 yuan ($858) — a 1,200 yuan ($178) discount.

Other third-party sellers on the site had the devices for even cheaper, offering flash sales to try to unload iPhones. One seller had a 256GB version of the iPhone XS Max, Apple’s most premium device, for 9,699 yuan ($1,436), way below the U.S. firm’s official selling price of 10,999 yuan ($1,628) for that smartphone.

Still, that remains more expensive than in the U.S., where the same phone would sell for $1,249, according to the Apple website.

And that’s just on one site. Other retailers in China are also putting their iPhones on sale. Sunion, an Apple re-seller, was advertising 700 yuan off for both the 128GB and 256GB versions of the iPhone XR. E-commerce site Pinduoduo, which allows third-parties to sell products, also had hefty discounts across all of the latest iPhone models.

Apple’s issues in China are down to two major factors, experts and local consumers say: It got its pricing wrong, and it has failed to introduce features to excite consumers in a forward-thinking technology market. Now, analysts said, competitors have taken market share in the premium smartphone space.

Apple reportedly plans to launch three new iPhones this year — including an XR successor

Apple plans to unveil three new iPhone models later this year, including a successor to the XR, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

The higher-end model will be fitted with a triple rear camera, while the lower-end models will be fitted with a double rear camera, the report said.

Apple plans to unveil three new iPhone models later this year, including a successor to the XR, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

The tech giant’s new phones will include new camera features, the WSJ reported, citing people familiar with the situation. The higher-end model will be fitted with a triple rear camera, while the lower-end models will be fitted with a double rear camera, the report said.

One will feature a liquid-crystal display (LCD), the display that Apple’s lower-end iPhone XR model currently comes with. The XR has reportedly struggled to win over Chinese consumers. The firm recently lowered its revenue guidance for the first quarter, alarming investors, and cited lower-than-expected iPhone revenue “primarily in Greater China” as one of the main reasons behind its warning.

According to the WSJ, Apple is considering sticking with phones that contain organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays from 2020, and dropping LCD displays altogether. OLED screens make images appear brighter and sharper than LCD panels.

Apple was not immediately available for comment when contacted by CNBC. Apple shares were 0.1 percent higher in premarket trade Friday.

Apple's newest iPhones are attracting more Android users than last year, survey shows

Apple’s latest iPhone models are attracting more Android users to the brand than in previous years, a new report by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners found. Signs have pointed to relatively weak demand overall for the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR, like lowered guidance by some of Apple’s key suppliers and the company’s announcement that it will no longer disclose unit sales for the iPhone.

The report found that 16 percent of iPhone buyers upgraded from an Android phone in the 30-day period after the launch of the iPhone XR. After the iPhone 8 and 8s were released in September 2017, 12 percent of iPhone buyers upgraded from an Android phone, and when the iPhone X was released in November 2017, that number was 11 percent.

“It appears that iPhone XR did serve to attract current Android users,” Mike Levin, CIRP co-founder and partner, said in a statement in a press release. “Of course, Apple doesn’t just state plainly its launch strategy. But, based on the pricing and features, we can infer that Apple positioned the iPhone XR to appeal to potential operating systems switchers from Android.”

CIRP’s report found that nearly a third of iPhone buyers in the U.S. flocked to its cheapest new model, the XR, which starts at $749. In the 30 days after its launch in October 2018, CIRP found that XR sales made up 32 percent of total iPhone sales in the U.S. During the same 30-day period after the XR release, sales for the the iPhone XS and XS Max accounted for 35 percent of U.S. iPhone sales combined.

In an interview with CNET last month, Apple’s vice president of product marketing, Greg Joswiak, said the iPhone XR had “been our most popular iPhone each and every day since the day it became available.”

This share of XR sales tracks with that of previous models in their first month on the market, CIRP said, acknowledging that it can’t make an exact comparison since this year Apple launched its more cheaper model second, diverting from previous launch strategies.

Apple estimates cut again amid fears of sluggish iPhone demand

Another Wall Street firm has cut expectations for Apple amid fears of soft smartphone and overall iPhone demand. Walkley slashed his iPhone units sales expectations to 213 million in 2018, 208 million in 2019 and 217 million in 2020. “Our surveys indicated soft smartphone demand with disappointing initial XR sales,” Walkley wrote in a note to clients Thursday. “Given the soft start to the latest lineup of iPhones, we are lowering our iPhone estimates and forecast lower year-over-year unit sales

Apple estimates cut again amid fears of sluggish iPhone demand

Another Wall Street firm has cut expectations for Apple amid fears of soft smartphone and overall iPhone demand.

Canaccord Genuity analyst Michael Walkley reduced his 12-month price target to $225 from $250 over the next year. The new target is still 24 percent higher than Wednesday’s closing price.

Canaccord Genuity also lowered its 2019 and 2020 earnings per share estimates. It now expects EPS of $13.25 next year and $14.69 in 2020 versus $13.46 and $15.18 previously. Walkley slashed his iPhone units sales expectations to 213 million in 2018, 208 million in 2019 and 217 million in 2020.

“Our surveys indicated soft smartphone demand with disappointing initial XR sales,” Walkley wrote in a note to clients Thursday. “Given the soft start to the latest lineup of iPhones, we are lowering our iPhone estimates and forecast lower year-over-year unit sales in calendar 2019.”

The analyst said muted demand for the XR fell short of his high expectations. He added that survey feedback for “lackluster” initial sales included its inferior quality perception given its aluminum construction versus the XS and XS Max, as well as lack of an HD screen and lower-cost options in the older iPhone X and 8 models.

Despite the target cut, Walkley still has a buy rating on the company’s stock. Shares of Apple rose 0.9 percent in premarket trading Thursday.

It’s a really good time to trade in your old iPhone for a new one

You might want to consider upgrading your iPhone now if you’ve been on the fence about buying a new iPhone XR or iPhone XS. It might even help boost sales of the iPhone XR. Apple typically offers $75 toward the price of a new iPhone if you trade in your iPhone 6. With its current promotion, however, Apple now offers $150 if you trade in an iPhone 6 for a new iPhone XR or iPhone XS. Apple will give you a $200 credit if you trade in the iPhone 6 Plus or iPhone 6s, twice what it normally offers.

It's a really good time to trade in your old iPhone for a new one

You might want to consider upgrading your iPhone now if you’ve been on the fence about buying a new iPhone XR or iPhone XS.

Ahead of the holidays — an important quarter for Apple sales — Apple increased the amount of credit it’s willing to offer customers who are trading in older iPhones toward the purchase of the new models it launched this year.

It might even help boost sales of the iPhone XR. Rumors of weak demand for that device have continued over the last several weeks after Apple suppliers cut revenue forecasts.

Apple typically offers $75 toward the price of a new iPhone if you trade in your iPhone 6. With its current promotion, however, Apple now offers $150 if you trade in an iPhone 6 for a new iPhone XR or iPhone XS. The offer applies to other phones too.

Apple will give you a $200 credit if you trade in the iPhone 6 Plus or iPhone 6s, twice what it normally offers. It’s offering a credit of $75 more than usual for the iPhone 7 ($250 total) and a $300 credit for the iPhone 7 Plus or iPhone 8 ($50 and $25 more than usual, respectively.)

This isn’t a whole lot of money for those devices, but it takes the headache out of trying to sell and ship a phone yourself. If you want to sell a device for cash instead of a trade-in value, consider sites that let you list a product and set your own price, like eBay, Swappa or Craigslist. Make sure you have everything, including a box and charger, to get the most out of your sale.

Also, keep in mind that the amount Apple will credit you for a trade-in will depend on the condition of your current iPhone. If it has a cracked screen, for example, expect to get less than the full trade-in amount. You can see what your device is worth and learn more on Apple’s trade-in site.

Apple reportedly wants to help discount the iPhone XR in Japan because it’s not selling well

Apple is planning to help its wireless carrier partners subsidize the costs of cutting the iPhone XR price in Japan, according to The Wall Street Journal. It’s the latest signal the iPhone XR isn’t selling as well as expected. Also, well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who was at first very bullish about the iPhone XR, issued a note earlier in the month that cut his iPhone XR shipment estimates by 30 million units.

Apple reportedly wants to help discount the iPhone XR in Japan because it's not selling well

Apple is planning to help its wireless carrier partners subsidize the costs of cutting the iPhone XR price in Japan, according to The Wall Street Journal.

It’s the latest signal the iPhone XR isn’t selling as well as expected.

Earlier this month, Nikkei reported that Apple had asked suppliers to cancel plans to boost production of the iPhone XR, which also suggested demand for the device was not as high as anticipated. Also, well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who was at first very bullish about the iPhone XR, issued a note earlier in the month that cut his iPhone XR shipment estimates by 30 million units.

The iPhone XR is the more affordable of the three iPhones Apple launched this year. Apple included many of the features available in its high-end iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max flagship phones, including support for Face ID and a large display, but the Journal said customers in Japan still prefer last year’s even more affordable iPhone 8.

It’s common to see discounted phones leading into the holiday season, however.

Many manufacturers, including Samsung and Google, also discount phones, and carriers have regularly offered bargains to customers in the U.S. to help drive sales. Apple’s holiday quarter is usually dominated by iPhone sales. Apple sold 77.3 million iPhones during the holiday quarter last year, for example. But Apple said earlier this month it will no longer break out its individual unit sales for iPhone.

Apple was not immediately available for comment.
