    You are right, complete with self destruct mode, with the exploding battery option built into every phone.

    Yes but iPhones with rapidly degrading battery and degrading speed. I especially loved replacing battery for 200 dollars month before Apple admitted problem

    Yeah, honestly, it won’t scare me. I’m driving a China made Volvo at the moment (XC60), while it’s not as nice as my Swedish made XC90 (I attribute this to the fact the 90 series cars are more luxurious than the 60 series cars), it’s still a great car that’s well built.

    Prefer a Chinese version, especially with FSD. If it can do FSD in China, it will be a piece of cake in USA.
