You only believe better "specs" means a better phone, but did not know that whats truly matters to people is user experience and ease of use.

No breakdown, meaning this 9 million figure can (and probably does) include units sold to telcos and not direct customers. meaning still that these telco units can sit for months in their inventory. but hey, it's still already sales for apple so they already have the money, and that's what really counts!

I don't get it!!! Other phones are better than apple, ios 7 still feels kiddish, the phone feels like a toy...
plus iphone 5s camera is still junk
. Look at apples site, they basically say this is the best camera phone, but its crap... Dosnt come close to Nokia lumia 1020

What are android fans doing over here? If you cant take it then leave it. I dont care if its true or not but Apple does release updates as promised unlike android. The update of jelly bean is still coming for older devices even for note 2... Hiw long more? Next year?

I imagine this is how the North Koreans will be when they realize Kim Jong Un is not as great as the propoganda led them to believe.

9 millions in a first week? Last year 5 millions in first week. Next year 15 millions in first week, maybe..
Apple is always lies...Thats just a 'hype' made by Apple
