The iphone5 was on sale for 9 days in a few countries during Q3. In Q4 it sold 27 mil. Which as we all learned in elementary school is more than 17.4 mil. Do you understand how numbers work?

Do you not understand how the English language works? I also don't think you understand how to read this simple graph or that a phone over a year old is outselling the Android flagship.

Why are there even some fanboys happy? Its not like the money of the phones sold goes to them.

No-one else doesnt have that kind of product in the market, if you want newest part you need to buy huge phone, no-else doesnt offer packet like iPhone. So future for apple and iPhone looks super great!

But people still prefer IPhone over any android device cause it's easy to use and works just fine without any lag issue or force to close. Yes this coming from an Android user S3, note 2, xperia T owner and I'm planning to shift to the next iPhone 5S/ 6 .

FUNNY! Watching the shellshocked and brainwashed samsung fanboys running around here trying to rationalize why the the company they worship isn't number one (or two for that matter) is hilarious.

Lets see how much the 5s will sell with same screen size and almost identical specs, then we will really see how blind and clueless iphone buyers are
