That they don't steal from us right? Do you not understand that there are a lot of people who pay for quality no matter what the cost? Besides, bottom line (yeah I know you don't like those) One company wins, the rest loses. Which side Apples falls on you can decide. BTW winners don't suck ;)
Honest Realist, 17 Nov 2015Such passion in your hatred! lmao ;) love it when the droid family cries (which is a daily thing)He is being reasonable in his comment and has a point. Meanwhile you did nothing to disprove or support his points. And then suddenly you talk about crying. Try and come with some reasonable points first, sheep.

More profit for Apple despite less sales means more sheep's money being sucked. Less profit for android makers despite more sales means android users are gaining much profit from the android smartphone bought.
Look at all the sheep here. Apparently they're happy Apple has managed to extract a huge surplus from them. Apple's marketing is so good they probably think they're Apple employees ;-)
iPhone has no qualification to be called a Smartphone at all in the first place. It has always been a media phone (A glorified dumb phone) wrongly being marketed as a smart phone. A lot of wannabe's who do not have the need or the ability to use real smartphones bought iPhone's because they too can brag that they own a "smartphone" even though many of them don't use their phones beyond voice calls, texting and most them don't use beyond internet and games.
This is no where near enough to qualify it as a smartphone. A Samsung clamshell that my sister used 12 years back had the ability to install custom apps and browse the internet (mobile wap sites). It used some custom OS, but iPhones today do not offer a lot more over that dumb phone to justify being called a smart phone.
Apple fans are seeing apple company as GOD and these apple fans go and lie at their feets begging for an apple phone for hundreds of dollars. Its like when humans found "flames, heat" and worshiped it as god. They are still in stone age. But android fans are demanding. They are living in present. They conquered the flames,heat and now they make use of the heat unless like apple fans worshiping it as god and praising them for their profits. Android fans know what they buy and how much they wanna pay for it. Its a shame that apple fans dont realise this. Its ok to praise ur product. But its not ok to praise that ur god gains more profit by squeezing u..

Greed is good, Greed is God.
It could be interesting to have the numbers divided by the number of devices sold.
That would make the situation for Samsung look even worse, but some of the smaller brands MIGHT look less bad off than by this graph.

You android buyers are paying Samsung / Sony etc etc to make parts for iPhones. ROFL
Android fanboys are at the bottom of smartphone food chain.

Its not only the phone they sell but also services, after sales.. Unlike other android cheap OEMs lol
No different than how 2% of the world own half of its wealth. And considering no one thinks that this is a good thing, why is it admirable or acceptable for Apple to be in an even more imbalanced situation?
Anonymous, 17 Nov 2015This is why some big Android smartphone makers will eventually exit the market.May be so but the biggest losers are consumers if this unlikely event happens! For someone to make such huge profit, some one has to lose on the other side, that is NOT Android users IMO! Android users will be proud to say that they are not contributing to this
That really makes Android Consumers smart by denying such huge Profit margin yet enjoying the fruits of Smartphone! Apple buyers have nothing to be proud of being ao by pumping money into Apple products when the same or similar experience is available at a cheaper price points.
