I don’t expect this phone to ‘sell out’, when it doesn’t nearly have the marketing as Apple‘s more expensive iPhones in September. But I do expect this phone to sell well long-term. And I think that’s what this device is more intended to be, is not overly hyped, but a practical upgrade and widely available without all the ‘Pro’ features that may not matter to various consumers.
