Who is the target demographic of $1,000 phones?
Apple iPhone: Inconsiderate lady at nail salon

Google Pixel: Inconsiderate people at nail salon

I find it strange that these two smart phones giants would try to connect with me through these commercials. Is it just happenstance that ethnic a-holes at nail salons were determined to be the best way to get people to spend $1k?

They both collect copious amounts of data on spending patterns, so I guess it is.

All advertising is targeted towards black people now because white people will still buy shite but blacks need extra motivation.

Everyone gets 1000 dollar phones when they let you pay 20 bucks a month for it

I get pissed that Verizon won’t let you buy a phone outright and you have to pay $33 extra a month on your bill for 2 years in order to have a phone.

You can buy a phone unlocked for any carrier and then have it activated.

These are largely for people who attach value to luxury goods / status symbols but can't afford an expensive house or vehicle. It's the same market as $500 shoes.

It doesn't even need to be unlocked depending on the carrier. I bought an att note 9 and use straight talk.

re: Who is the target demographic of $1,000 phones?
Hell, I think you can even buy your phone outright in the store. Most people just don’t want to pay $800+ up front, hence the payment plan.

When carriers switched to no longer having subsidized phones, the plan itself went down a great deal. Bitch about the payment plan all you want, but you weren’t getting free phones before like you think you were. Nothing is free.

I've got a 30 year kid coworker, still lives with his parents but has to get the newest and most expensive phone when it comes out.
It's a weird mindset. I'll drag out m old S7 until it doesn't work anymore. I don't see much his phones can do that mine can't.
