Huawei trolls Apple, gifts iPhone buyers free power banks

Huawei Trolls Apple by Giving Out 200 Free Power Banks to Fans Camping Outside Store

But that means little to the Apple Inc. faithful or those seeking to upgrade their older iPhone.

Just a few hours after the release of these new iPhones at the Apple store along Orchard Road on Friday (21 Sept) at 9am, people have already started re-selling them on online marketplaces such as Carousell. But the annual theater of iPhone launch day remains a bright spot. It's not uncommon for new phone owners to put their prized possessions directly into a protective case or at the very least, handle them like delicate flowers. After all, we're moving away from the two-year replacement cycle as these devices get more durable.

As a result, many mainland buyers, and in particular scalpers who had hoped to make quick money by "flipping" the devices, are reportedly in a panic, rushing to cancel their orders with Apple.

Officers are warning Apple customers to be cautious.

iPhone fans began lining up outside the Apple Store at Westfield Century City at 2 p.m. Thursday in anticipation of the phone's debut Friday.

Ivy Wong, a 30-year-old clerk, also failed to resell her 256GB gold iPhone XS Max.

If you want to look up the nitty-gritty details of the new iPhone XS, XS Max and XR, we've finally gotten our answers from its TENAA certification listing in China. At around 11pm, Huawei's representatives, who were in Huawei shirts, starting handing out 10,000mAh power banks for free to the long queues of people who were clearly going to camp out in front of the Apple store overnight.

The big jump in iPhone cameras came a generation earlier with the iPhone 6S, when Apple went from 8 megapixels to 12 megapixels in resolution. However, the new iPhone XS consists of a single L-shaped battery unit. "The feature allows me to have a local SIM card installed when I work overseas, without taking out my Chinese SIM card". Curiously, the new model's battery is 2,659 mAh capacity, compared to the iPhone X battery's 2,716 mAh.

As the fans queued up for the launch in Singapore, Huawei offered them power banks for the iPhone XS that carried a message suggesting Apple phones don't have a long battery life.

Skimming through my Twitter timeline after the iPhone XS review embargo lifted earlier this week (I refuse to read reviews of a product until after I've reviewed it), I got the impression that the iPhone XS Max was too big for most reviewers.

This year's iPhones are some of the most expensive smartphones on the market. The overall price range is US$449 to US$1,449 now, up from US$349 to US$1,149 previously.

But not everyone pre-ordered or made appointments.
