Anonymous, 11 May 2015So many rich people in China. iPhones are incredibly expensive phones and people usually must ... moreyeah. unlike US, chinese peoples have to pay full price for an iphone. And if this anylasis is correct, then there are lots of rich people in china compared to US. I see now, why someone predicted chinese economy will one day will be in top.
That expression on Tim Cook's face when apple is being compared with xiaomi :p
Chinese company's makes better device's than apple don't know why Chinese people would want to buy that apple crap.
Between the two Chinese made phones, Apple and Xiaomi, I'd rather take Xiaomi since it has better specs and doesn't suffer from browser and app reloads due to insufficient DRAM on iPhone.
So many rich people in China. iPhones are incredibly expensive phones and people usually must pay full price to get it in China.
they buy apple because they like it better than their chinese design phone. That's all.

I mean why would anybody buy a tweaked 2012 iPhone5 http://www.gsmarena.com/compar...e2=6378which the iHone 6 is a lrager display iPhone5 that adds the NON phone related Apple Pay
It is down to marketing and perception so Xiaomi deserters will have a plong time to think on the overspend.
Not intimidated by the iPhone6 nor shallow enough to assume that there is kudos in owning one or that peeple are JEALOUS.
The BIG BIG question is in October 2015 and what f any improvements Apple come up with now Samsung has shown Apple how to make REAL "iPhones" that have HIGH specifications.
8MP Camera / DUAL CORE / 1Gb Ram will it be this configuration again???
listen, 11 May 2015Well good for apple lets see what happens.next year.Next year Apple going to widen their lead even more
Umbilical Noose, 11 May 2015Something you will never see happening in emerging markets like Brazil, Africa and India.Not rich enough yet.
But I did see a lot of iPhones in Brazil, although among the richer set.
