Lacklustre sales for new model iPhones in Hong Kong and mainland China

Despite this, hundreds of people were lining up to enter Apple's flagship store on Regent Street by 8.30am.

"Samsung is committed to delivering meaningful innovation to all consumers across the Galaxy family, no matter who they are or where they are in the world" said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics.

The event took place on the eve of September 20 at Apple's flagship Orchard Road store, the night before it opened its doors to customers.

In my brief time with the iPhone XS Max this morning, it's clear to me I once again need to get used to triggering Reachability and start using it more often. That might not reflect on consumers' opinions of the phones as much, as it might indicate that leaks about the new models were pretty much spot on over the previous year.

The couple purchased 18 XS Max models at a Lincoln Road Apple Store and tucked them into the trunk of their rental vehicle before driving to a nearby Starbucks.

Leung focused on scalping the iPhone XS Max because he believed people would prefer the larger screen as most users watch TV shows and play games on their phones. Due to the Apple's new 7-nanometer A12 Bionic chip, the company says that the new iPhone XS will last up to 30 minutes longer than the iPhone X.

When we went hands-on with the iPhone XS and XS Max, we were mainly struck by how similar they felt to the iPhone X-particularly the iPhone XS.

If you're insulted by the prices companies are offering for older model smartphones, there are dozens of ways to turn them into something useful.

Here, the iPhone X stacked on top of the XS and XS Max. The overall price range is US$449 to US$1,449 now, up from US$349 to US$1,149 previously. In Singapore, those who were waiting overnight for the release of the iPhone XS and XS Max, were handed power banks by the China-based tech giant. Cao Zhongqiang from Shanghai was told he couldn't get any devices on the first day without an existing order.

The operation executive said: "I'm keeping one phone for myself and selling the other three phones away to make a profit".
