Inflation says that will not be possible. Minimum wage has increased 40% since that time and our dollar has dropped significantly as well.

The Sony IMX586 is an impressive camera sensor. Pixel merging 4:1 for a nominal 12MP image, low light performance comparable to 1.6μm pixels. Should be seeing it in other flagships.

A pity the Axon 10 doesn't include B66 for T-Mobile/Freedom.

I'm pretty sure that is the same sensor that the Mi 9 has... it is wonderful.

I'm still rockin the axon 7 since almost 3 years. But lookin to upgrade as it's showing its age unfortunately plus the battery doesnt last as long as it used to.

Strongly lookin into the axon 10 pro. Though unavailable in NA at the moment. Hopefully they decide to bring it here. Not sure id buy such an expensive item from GB or Aliexpress and the like. If they do come, i hope newegg offers a good deal like they did with the axon 7.

Impressive specs, though disappointments include a 1080 screen and no forward facing speakers... Even the axon 7 has higher res screen why couldnt they include it this time? The speakers i can forgive.

Minimum wage has increased in China?


I loved my Axon 7. Used it for a year, then gave to my wife. Simple clean UI. Excellent sound. Excellent battery life. Only problem is it never got Android upgrades after 2017.

Will see if ZTE ends up on the hitlist like Huawei.

ZTW was on the hitlist before, but Trump dropped it after it paid billions of dollar to US.

The dollar has dropped primarily because the price of oil dropped, less because of any minimum wage increase, and our dollar is unfortunately connected to oil a great deal.

However, I think this is a top notch phone and it would be nice to see if some deals come out.

I think its not that staright forward with CN as the fx rate is purely decided by govt and PBOC directly intervenes to keep the rate favourable so that USD imports remain advantageous for importing countries. That way coporations in US make get greater chunk of profits which they would have never made , had they decided to manufacture goods inside US. Of course CN gets larger market share as companies around the world fight to manufacture goods in CN. Another fun fact is Germany has for long period of time maintained the same wages which is why its also equivalent of CN in terms of being competetive even though the wages in CN have increased over the eyars but the wages in DE have remained stagnant.

It certainly does work on Freedom Mobile.
