iPhone X sales

Apple may have just had their best weekend for sales in their history. Although they haven’t shared any figures, Jun Zhang an analyst who works for Rosenblatt Securities has calculated that they might have sold 6 million iPhone X models.

It’s a long weekend (4 days) that’s being looked at, but no matter how it’s worked out the numbers are staggering. In a regular 4 day period 1.75 million iPhone X phones are sold so if these figures are right they more than tripled their normal sales rate.

18 iPhone X units sold every second

If you are still struggling with such big numbers it works out something like 17 or 18 iPhone X units sold every second over a 4 day period!

Before the top end handset was launched many said that such an expensive mobile phone wouldn’t sell. It’s looking fairly clear that despite the price tag of £999 for the iPhone X 64gb and £1149 for the iPhone X 256gb these smartphones are selling like hot cakes.

Samsung Galaxy S9

The next big smartphone launch is expected to be the Samsung Galaxy S9. I’m sure the Samsung senior management are now thinking that maybe they should offer a handset in the same price range. Maybe they too will bring out 2 handsets at the same time as it seemed to work pretty well for Apple.

If you are one of the 6 million customers that bought the 10 year anniversary phone you might want to think about insurance. Here at Better Buy Insurance we offer iPhone X insurance for just £8.49 a month or £89.99 a year and these prices cover both models.

We are so confident that you won’t find better cover or a better price anywhere else we offer a Best Price Guaranteed which you can check out if you click below.

Mobile phones stolen at Royal Blood gigs

After reports of mobile phones being stolen at their concerts in Cardiff and Reading, the band, Royal Blood, have warned their fans to be extra vigilant and to keep a look out for their mobile phones and wallets when attending their gigs.

A 22-year-old man has been arrested with a staggering 53 mobile phones that were thought to have been stolen at a concert in Birmingham.

It would suggest that the band are being targeted by a gang who think that there is enough chaos in front of the stage for phones to be taken without the knowledge of the owners. Or when the owners do notice it’s too late.

Phones worth £1000 being stolen

These days with phones costing £1,000 in some cases, like the new Apple iPhone X, thieves could be stealing literally thousands of pounds worth of equipment in a matter of an hour or so.

This is not the first time thieves have targeted concert goers. A man was arrested after a concert by The Courteeners at the Brixton Academy in 2014. It was thought that he was wearing a tracksuit under his jeans and he simply slipped the phones down the tracksuit once other gang members had pickpocketed unsuspecting concert goers.

Thieves target concert goers

Sadly, it seems that thieves are happy to target concert goers in this way, many of whom are young and might find themselves in difficulty without a phone to contact friends or family if they get split up after a concert.

Royal Blood continue their tour tomorrow in Bournemouth then Brighton before heading off to continue the tour worldwide. If you are going to these gigs or any others please be careful with your phones, especially when taking photos or videos.
