It should be out selling the S4 with it being nearly 6 months newer!!! This doesn't make it a better phone though. Both phones are full of worthless gimmicks and both companies are pathetic too with their constant legal battles. Everyone copies ideas of each other and everyone got on with it until apple started with trying to get compensation for "rounded corners and pinching motion". Both need to get on with it and actually deliver a great device with useful features.

I just switch, 5 months before, the iPhone 4s for SGS S4. I'm very happy with that decission. SGS S4 is much better than iPhone. In every task.

The reason iphone gets such high sales is because its less of a phoneand more of an Jewel... Yes iphoneis compact and it also has alot of developer support from software to hardware ... we should be happy its expensive cause trust me if they could decrease it to a low price e.g. +\-$300 for even 1week in every carrier trust me we will make a long que ... longer than a voting line L0L....

> In reply to Joey @ 2013-12-13 02:15 from ijWy - click to readThe reason iphone is the market leader is that it delivers what most consumers want

Consumers want more but Apple didn't give them in 1 go.
So they suck and waited for every year to play the catch-up game set by Apple before their consumer get better and matches Android old last year top spec cellphones.

They didn't release a mini tablet because they wanted their nerdy consumer to buy ipad mini.

iphone is perfect only in the heart of Apple fanboy as they have no choice but just keep waiting and hoping for Apple to release a bigger screen phone. Once they have the 5"+ phone in the next 2 years, they'll change and twist all the words they use to lie in the past years...

iphone was fast only because it was a much basic and simple feature phone like Nokia S40 phone. It was not qualify as a smartphone because ios was an communism closed system that lack compatibility.

It's a joke for Apple fanboy talking Apple ecosystem. WTH that almost all Apple iphone carrying a large power bank then, if ios was an ecosystem? Joke of the century.

I've delt with many Samsungs, and just about every other phone out there, and I hate any glitches with a phone. So when I got an iPhone and it was lag free, glitch free, I fell in love with it, the same can't be said for the many Samsung users I know, who HATE their S4s and wish they'd stayed with Apple. Also maybe you'll understand why Apple is top of the range, when you put down the spec sheet and read up on how these systems actually work, instead of giving your misguided opinion online.

the most ridiculous thing i have ever heard, is that why do people need a 5.3 inch screen when a 4 inch screen is good enough. This was the same argument a few years back, why do people need a 4 inch screen, when 3.5 inch is good enough. cmon, the market is heading into bigger territory now. Apple were happy to be at 3.5 inch for many years, then they went to 4 inches now, and talk of going bigger with the next iphone.

Still cant understand why people continue to buy Apple devices. What happens after 12 months and your device become faulty? I have to pay to have a replacement!!!! Every manufacturer gives 24 months warranty with their products APART FROm APPLE they give 12. Great company shows great faith in their products, lol!
