Apparently Yes it is , Vivo has beaten Apple in terms of new technology . All Apple has done is make its phones more and more expensive without introducing any new technology . Apple has lost innovation. The next generation of iPhones are not much different than its previous one except the higher price. iPhones have already lost their charm , they’re becoming less and less desirable than before. The under-screen fingerprint scanner is going to be big breakthrough of 2018.
