Dude please do not make arguments between Android to other OS, Let's face the reality that android is Number 1 Mobile Operating System worldwide.
No room for bitterness guys.
Samsung-fan, 03 Nov 2014The biggest problem with android is lack of operating software updates across the devices.Updates should be rolled out directly from google for all just as Apple and Microsoft do. Make that possible Google and manufacturers...
HTC profit fall by 1/6th , samsung also the same whereas Sony made loss , only LG made 'some ' profit , Motorola still fails to recovers its R&D expenditure . The question arises what is use of having most problem OS (with most free apps ) if there is no profit ? Whereas Apple made a huge profit with just 12% ! BB CEO JOHN CHEN and APPLE CEO TIM COOK are correct - making smartphone not everybody but only to who , who can spend.
SEBITSO85, 03 Nov 2014yeah i heard the story. but dude hey? this Goliath aint loosin this fight mate. ANDROID FANBO... moreLol. Dude, calm down.. We understand how much you love Android, and I too love Android.
Im just saying that Android though theyre dominating right now, shouldnt in any way under estimate their rivals.
"Android's presence has declined by 1 percent point.."
The biggest problem with android is lack of operating software updates across the devices.
"can't grow any further"?
If not 100% it can grow further.
"Samsung is still the largest Android smartphone manufacturer"
It's the largest smartphone manufacturer irrespective anything, isn't it?
But Samsung has now for years tried all shapes and sizes and should by now know what sells so it can start reducing its variety of different models to say 10 to cut cost.
P.S. IOS is not perfect neither WP but how good can be an OS when every once in a while you need to perform " Factory Reset"!!! C'mon
Highest market shares tell its the best platform??? Cmon grow up everyone it only tells only Android is budget friendly
Ludo, 03 Nov 20143% - LOLMore marketshare than you'll ever have of anything, mind.
meeuw, 03 Nov 2014nah , these where other times when smartphones were a new thing. symbian would be still the b... moreWhat I mean to say is nothing can stay at peak forever... Greedy giants never learn from mistakes of previous giants. Like Samsung learned nothing from Nokia hence going downhill.. Just like Google being evil has learned nothing from Symbian. When you are enjoying lion's share, you are blinded from taking precautions.
thnks to devices like moto is that android has a good market share...it is incrdible...fast good battery..camera usage is for few social network share...no bad...i used to be ios user...im not now because i have to spend my money in other things but ...after using moto g i think that android improved alot their os...my first attept was the t-mobile g2x..when it was a high end device oliked the tegra 2 chipset and screen but then got a lot of errors..had to hard reset the phone...the 3.5 jack had issues...them i moved to the tiny xperia mini pro...i was ok for me ..good camera too..the screen sized started to be aproblems so i moved to xperia play god device but lack of support....2.3.4 was the latest one ..sony fault...low ram and low end chipset...camera was bad compared to xperia mini pro used to have...after the flex stopped working decided to look for another device...and moto g is current one no issues for now waiting for android l....
Android maybe has 84% of the market but money goes to apple as 12% of IOS make more money than all WP,android together. Just imagine a day when apple decide to drop their prices even for one day! For example 5s one day only limited offer for 200$. On that day android sells will stand still
MrGray, 03 Nov 2014David and Goliath story. Have you heard of that?yeah i heard the story. but dude hey? this Goliath aint loosin this fight mate. ANDROID FANBOISM ROCKS!!!!! yeaaaah eat it, eati and tell me how it sux to be on the out skirts of main stream technology.
in hordes we rock the cyberspace. millions of androids mates. I LIKE IT !!!!
all the way baby. wo wo wo wo...YEAAH!
One-Four-One, 03 Nov 2014So Android stands where Symbian was back in he days. Now we knows whats coming next. nah , these where other times when smartphones were a new thing.
symbian would be still the best OS but somehow Nokia fucked up (very little ram on board @ #1 imho) .
The only thing that would push android communication devices back is a Linux system like Ubuntu for phones. So like having a PC without any limitations in your backpocket. I mean printing form your phone over usb etc. Full Photoshops stuff etc. Its
about time. ANd Google will be the only 1 doing it or Buying it !
well but may be android has over 80 % market share due to few flagships and a lot of midrange and low end devices wich last ones workes pretty bad....performance is terrible,...with midrage it depends on how much ram and space and android version they have...with high end it depnds of the manufacture so u can get a good camera or good sound or good battery back up either...a lot of devices but not a lot of money compared to apple if u see everything is expensive ...with 1 iphone u can buy from 4 to 6 low end androids...so there ismore money even with low market chare..
