Re: are new innovation, just enhancements
Ashish, since I am an iPhone user I can tell you there is no better similar device that has convinced me in any way to be superior than the iPhone. I use it as one of work tools and has proven to deliver more than I expected and more than what I knew the device could do. I would not change my iPhone 6 Plus for any other, and will upgrade to iPhone 7 Plus without a second thought. You really need to know the device to see what is worth. One invaluable thing is, again, that Apple devices work.
About the Lunar Calendar holiday sales I imagine it's just the same like the crazy Christmas holiday season. You see sales everywhere before, during, and after. We know absolutely all the productors sold are way overpriced. Giving the incentive to a discount on iPhones attract customers who will not only possibly buy an iPhone, but other products as well. It's just a marketing strategy that proves to be effective in any part of the world. Now, it's true that the demand forf iPhones in China is lower than in other parts of the world. Local brands have a real impact in China. It's the same that once happened with Nokia phones in Finland. Back then, no other phone manufacturer sold better than Nokia.
