Completely agree, this is a company with a thorn in it's foot speaking
Let's see what the market shares will look like in 6 months, i'm guessing apple will lose their fair share if they keep offering the same product for too much money without improvements

iPhone 5 has the 2 generations old hardware!
The CPU is still with Dual Core with entry 4" screen!
The iOS still looks the same like 5 years ago!
So boring!

So, iOS is better?

I mean the last time I checked, it didn't allow file management. Bluetooth transfers. Otg. It even had issues in attaching stuff to email.

Android instead gives us a far more functional platform to work with.

Anyway, fear can make people do certain things. :-P

this guy is a complete moron haha, iphone's been on the same OS forever they're lucky they have a sheep herd as clients. It shows Apple's sweating now,the flame on the iphone trend is soon to be blown out. it's time for people to wake up a realize what a smartphone really is. I dare someone to backup the iphone in this post, you'll only take the time to make yourself look dumb

Schiller, Samsung release Galaxy S4 with Jelly Bean 4.2 which is a 4 months old release, NOT 1 year. Moreover, on May, Google release OS 5, and Galaxy S4 is updated immediately to latest one. Moreover, old phones could be updated by post market mods in XDA. For example my I9003 is a 4 yeats old phone, and i am using it with firmware 4.2.2 android. I receive more updates than iOS. Also, android price is more than a half than an iphone offering SAME features. Moreover android has more coverage from high to low market. Schiller is using many bad words, not real information. Nowadays Samsung and android are both the king, and for next 5 years. Unfortunately, iOS has a old design in interface, phone do not have new design, and why to pay more than double for same features?????????????????

well, he and all other representatives from other companies ( htc,samsung or whatever) should keep their mouths shut and compete with products. this type of bashing is stupid and shows that he is hurting that others are doing well. when apple is doing well, and someone says something " oh hate or envy, they don't innovate or buy patents like we do".
mind your own business and compete with great alternatives.
