"In China, Apple didn’t offer walk-in sales of the iPhones but sold the device to customers with reservations as it has since 2013. About 80 customers lined up outside the Beijing Apple store on Friday morning to pick up their devices, including Tao Ran, a 37-year-old English teacher, who said the pricier device was “still affordable.”

“In China, there is a tendency for people to attach attributes to this phone. It’s a symbol of wealth, a symbol of high-level living standard,” said Mr. Tao, who paid around 20,000 yuan (about $3,000) for two 256-gigabyte iPhone Xs."

Guess Mr. Tao didn't want one of those cheap Chinese Androids. Who'd a thunk it?

And....he wasn't happy with just one iPhone X, he bought two!
