Q: China mainlanders' reaction to Reuter's comments on iPhone8's price. What mind thinks like that?

http://a.mp.uc.cn/article.html?from=msg&uc_param_str=frdnsnpfvecpntnwprdsssnikt#!wm_aid=d6257069711c44debfee679aa8cbb0e3!!wm_id=18b01a903acc4670bd6e794eedb98014  (dalu article)

Cate Cadell's original article    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-apple-iphone-china/lucky-8-1000-price-tag-dampens-iphone-enthusiasm-in-china-idUSKCN1BM0LN

 

Title of dalu article: Reuters trashes usd 1000 iPhone8. Says Chinese can't afford it. 

 

Netizens response  --  laowais use angering tactic to sell their product. It is a trap, the same trick used in car sales.

 

What do you think Reuters mean?

How would you call daluren's type of thinking, or mindset?

Firstly, the $999 price is for the iPhone X, pronounced iPhone Ten, the iPhone 8 starts at $649 and the 8 Plus $100 higher. Secondly, the Chinese have paid premium prices for 'Face' products, which they really can't afford, for years. I also believe that not only the Chinese, but, most people, internationally will have to decide if any phone is worth over $1,000.

A:It will depend on a lot of factor based on the new scoring system, did you try the new scoring scheme on wechat? Go to search on wechat and type it in and you'll find one there than test yourself and look at your score and see if you can improve anywhere to make the score higher, better start improving your chinese and hopefully youre in a needy city. Just for the record: ESL teachers or teachers of any subject will always be a B card Talent. -- ironman510
