Apple have a very simples business plan which is to introduce a very few models, make the hype go crazy, keep it simple and bank roll :D. HTC was going in the right step with its One line of phones, but now there is a gold, desire C, Evo, one XL and its just going down hill. Samsung has 100 Galaxy phones, but clearly we see that alot of there smartphone sells come from the higher-end of the market.

God! Absolutely! I'm not daft enough to think that the price I'm paying is the price the product is worth!

LOL!

I just don't understand why people 'associate' themselves with a brand... you're obviously loyal to Apple - but why one earth should it be 'good' or 'beneficial' to you that Apple makes more profit (I doubt either of us can afford shares!) - it makes no sense! (obviously you want them to keep being in business - but surely you can see that they rip-off consumers and take advantage of workers in some of the poorest countries to the hilt)

I had a Sammy GS2 for a year, loved it, decided to swap it for an Xperia Play for 6 months, just to try the controller and the emulators (fantastic) now I'm looking to get something else... Maybe a Nexus, maybe a Sony Mint when it comes out... it means I get full choice of products, regardless of manufacturer...

My issue with Apple is that they don't innovate.. in Steve Jobs' own words "we steal other people's ideas and improve on them..." - and they do it well... but they drip-feed features every year

In terms of technology, Samsung's the best! In terms of sales, Apple Inc. is the best! iPhone technology is not up to the Android standards. Windows Phone 7 OS seems promising enough. It would be great if Microsoft implement Windows 7 PC OS into Smartphones

The strength of Android is not in the specs or the openness of the software, regardless of what the diehards say, but in the variety of phones available. With or without keyboards, large, medium and small screens, price range, etc. If there were a single high end phone then that would put it and the iPhone in a much less crowded field. If that were to happen, then I think that the iPhone's ecosystem and brand reputation alone would make it still come out on top. Unless of course there was a price advantage. Does anyone have yearly sales numbers for the high end phones of Samsung, HTC, Sony and Moto? If we add them up that might give us a good indication of where the market might have been. But then again, those companies' phones all have diffrent specs, availiability, sizes, etc. So it would just be an extremely crude comparison at best.

I just like talking to the fanboys who try hard to make the connection that since Samsung manufactures it then they must have developed too.

But lets not forget that there really isnt another company that can output the hardware to the quality and speed that apple demand as we saw with them dropping LG for making screens for the iPad. So both companies need each other.

Do you feel ripped off? If you do then why did you buy it and not an Android one? They're taking your money too. People are willing to pay for a product with a quality ecosystem, stability and user experience. That's how business works. You give a company your money for a product you want. Every time you buy something, some company goes to the bank with your money.

IF the S2 was the only high end phone of 2011 I'm sure it would have sells figures much closer to the iPhone

The real test is market share per handset.....

And it wouldn't even close.....

I suggest that Samsung, along with yourself, are the real losers here.

Either way, it's funny that Apple uses Samsung parts to get gangbuster profits. Maybe one day Samsung can copy that too. It's funny how Samsung fanboys like to bring up sales stats until someone mentions that Apple serves them a heaping slice of humble pie. Then they want to change the subject and talk about who is the "real deal." The real deal makes the real money.

(and just having ordered an iPad, Apple do have some uses!)

But you do realise that what you're saying below is that Apple is making more money from you than other people, i.e. ripping you off more? I mean you get that, don't you?

Apple are indeed winning 'all the to the bank' with YOUR MONEY!!!



Mobile phone profits:
Apple: 73%
Samsung:26%
Others: 1%

If that's losing then Apple must be crying...all the way to the bank.
