Well that was about to happen any time, think, Apple has about 3 models of phones to sell, meanwhile Samsung has about 4 or 6 versions of each model that they build, so whats the news on it?
Water is wet?
US based company with chinese factories, also its profits goes offshore to avoid U.S. taxes .
I dont care apple wins or samsung, simple truth is that iPhones are better than others.
gilda, 05 May 2016There is only one way to describe how an iPhone feels. Superior.in your dreams
Off course iPhone SE won't help in sales.
How many will buy the same few years ago design phone!
Congratulate Samsung be a leader now. :)
samsung is an elite company.
it has the capacity to launch a new phone within 2 months if there is some competition to its product.
apple is a joke. one phone at a time.what is this stone age???
ppl having to wait one whole year for a better product.
Anonymous, 05 May 2016It is the us People there get phones from carriers monthly paymentsJust like they get Apple phones on contracts also. What is your point? Apple is also a US based company.
Anonymous, 05 May 2016You say people cant afford iPhones. How do they afford S7? 0_o
Get a brainIt is the us
People there get phones from carriers monthly payments
Jesus!!!!Alcatel shares 6.6% but HTC does not share even 1%????!!!!!!how is that even possible?!!
higher demands same period by adding micro sd and waterproof back in S7 (and bundling free vr headset with pre-orders). Never underestimate any feature's influence (and freebies). S6 and S7 performances should serve as a wake up call for samsung to focus on the android market that made them n.1 and stop going after the apple crowd.
The bigger number of Samsung sales is because of a series and not S,note and edge.
Earlier Nokia,Now Samsung,,two of the great brands always..
Subzz, 05 May 2016But, didn't they say LG G5 march market wasn't counted? But this article mentions "LG is third with 17.1% market share and is increasingly gaining on Apple".
You can talk about specs and bash apple and it's products/prices until you are blue in the face. I know. I was one of these people till about 2 months ago. Then I tried an iPhone and fell in love so much that I ended up getting a MacBook Pro Retina.....One thing that I can say about Apple products.....they are SUPERIOR. I just wish that I'd tried them 5 years ago before wasting a lot of time and money on windows and android crap.
Guys stop the fight here!
Samsung has a larger competition to apple. And still they manage to win. Isn't it great? Oh wait, let me explain.
ios is a totally different os from android.. Those used to ios would rarely shif to androids and vice versa..
So, apple has no competition with other brands coming up with ios.. But, on the other hand, there are hundreds of android phones available, flagship specs, similar pricing, competing with Samsung's S7..
So when it comes to choosing android, its a choice between HTC, LG, Samsung, Huawei, or even Sony, Blackberry. But, choosing ios = apple.. Only apple..
Even with bigger competition, Samsung manages to be on top.. Even if u are not so a Samsung fanboy (even I am not), you would still agree, hands down, s7 is the best phone money can buy right now..
Best in class display, camera, specs, design plus waterproofing, wireless charging, expandable memory and great battery life (Edge has a bonus here)..
Coming to apple's 6s, definitely it has Touch sensitive display and great performance.. But? I am still okay with a 720p display, but a poor battery? Nah, no.. Ya, the same reason i didn't like s6 due to the smaller battery..
So did i mean to say 6s is bad? No definitely not. Its still one of the best devices. But..... Keep in mind, even with lower cost hardware compared to others in similar price tag, apple is charging a bomb (which is why they still hold maximum profit in the smartphone market, even with lower sale)... And i-fans still keeps protesting when someone dislikes the price.. Guys, comeon.. Lower the price, the better is for u.. Nothing else..
The Market Share here is not clear, GSMArena. Is this in Dollar Sales or in Smartphone Units? Because if this is in Dollar Sales, clearly SAMsheet wins, but if in units, iSheet wins (convert units to dollar sales).
gilda, 05 May 2016Blind? Or perhaps they can actually afford apple products unlike a lot of haters out there. Ty... moreYou are one of those funny ifanboys who bring up the "Cannot afford" card everytime someone criticizes iphones. FYI, iphones are owned by at least 500 million people in planet earth, pretty much every Tom, Dick and Harry is owning iphones. If you feel you are one of those very few "previleged" people in planet earth, you would be better off educating yourselves about the ground realities. iphones are for MASSes, not just for "millionaires" in this world. Don't worry - it will reach that stage eventually (may be in 2025). Then you are brag about it, not now.
