How many times have you heard your friends saying “Should I buy the new iPhone right now, after its release, or wait until it gets cheaper?” Nowadays, this is a pretty common question and it doesn’t happen just when it comes to Apple products, even though devices like the iPhone, the MacBook Pro or the MacBook Air are far from being affordable.
No, the same thing goes for Samsung mobiles or a Samsung tablet. The latest smartphones are packing an impressive amount of tech, as manufacturers invest a lot in research and development. And, somehow, they need to make profit with these devices, hence the not-so-pocket-friendly-prices.
Presuming that you’re a tech fan, who wants to be between the first to try new devices, deciding upon buying a new phone, immediately after the release, or waiting until the price drops a bit can be a very tough choice.
Well, this depends a lot on your budget. If this is not an issue, you might as well go ahead and buy it as soon as it starts hitting the market. The UAE, for example, is one of the countries where new smartphones are available shortly after the launch and people basically queue in front of the stores in order to get their hands on one.
One the other side, if you’re willing to wait just a few months, most likely two or three, you will get the newest smartphone for a way better price, since manufacturers will cut them. This happens because the initial buzz, created by the launch of the phone, is already over and people start losing their interest.
Our recommendation is to wait a bit, especially if you already have a very good smartphone. But, in the end, it’s all up to you!
