That's not too shocking given that android OS is not bound to one phone like iPhone. It gives users choices instead of being locked to one phone with the same specs as everyone else who also running that same OS. Also what is not too shocking is the price difference. Let's get real apple charges way too much for a phone that is nowhere near as powerful then most smartphones running a different OS. I'm not talking about that android OS, I'm talking about the hardware of the phone. That small thing that people often over look.

Keep your dalvik cache clean and it's the best OS

Android is the most powerful and most unique in regards to the specifications of the device that you want to select; iphone is iphone - get what you're given and expected to pay a lot.

iOS is weak and lacks true multi-tasking. See how easy it is?

Apple shouldn't sell the iphone in China. Because nobody will buy the iphone for 2x the price of Chinese phone like Meizu, Xaomi, Oppo, Levono, ZTE, Huawei... not to mention a zillion knock off cheap brand phone. iPhone is dead in China.

This article is just Android vs IOS. IF Android was one manufacturer then Apple is screwed, in android is 20 manutfacteres. Apple will do fine in China.
