S3 did outsell iphone, though.

By the way Samsung is not afraid to produce many phones. Galaxy S4, Note 3, Galaxy Active, Galaxy Mega 5+", Galaxy Mega 6+", Grand, - all of them better than any iphone. Even the low end: Galaxy Mini, Ace , Galaxy Zoom , are not worse than any iphone.
And Samsung is competing with hundreds Android OEMs for.
iPhone5S is the only high(arguably)-end iOS phone. Right?

Looks like Apple are going to have another good year.

The iPad Air is sitting pretty alongside the Samsung tab 10, and the Mini 2 has been voted by most review sites as the best compact tablet.

And with iPhone 5S the number is going to be even bigger

iPhone 5S outsold Samsung Galaxy S4 in China. Okay, nothing interesting. Still no phone can outsell Nokia 1110. It's funny, really.

Even GSMA's review said it was underused feature. Absolutely not an instant hit. It will need much more time to get implemented properly so it is not yet well implemented.

S4 is not cheap. Besides the production price of S4 is much higher than iphone production price.

For the record , Apple is loosing lately one by one, on every front , from Samsung. And this trend will continue.

And the last thing: There are no "Sammy fans here". Normal ppl just buy the best , no matter of the brand.

"The iPhone 5s has outsold the Galaxy S4, according to the research firm, Counterpoint."

First:It's only the iphone 5S launch quarter.
Second: Let's see what other research firms say.
Third: How GSMA made this article?

The truth is that iOS is less feature-efficient, and doesn't need quad core processors."

Surprise surprise, say guy who has never used it :D

Millions of people disagree with you, i think most of iPhone 5S owners use the fingerprint login, know why? Because it so well implemented. Not sure why you even compare it to motorola fingerprint fail, nothing to do with Apple's.

Well when your phone get that feature next year, you can also enjoy that great feature ;) well maybe not, because anyone else doesnt have so natural place for the sensor, so using it doesnt come naturally like it comes with iPhone and thats the reason why iPhone fingerprint was instant hit.

I Love To See The Fan Boys Go At It, Lol... Let's Call A Spade A Spade Guys;
-- Samsung Phones Hv Superior Proscessing Components, Sure, But Look At The Apps (Especially The Games) That Run On Both Platforms, They Look The Same! Both The S4 And The 5S Run Smooth! So Your Arguments Are Invalid.
-- Sure The S4 Has More MegaPixels, But Hv You Seen The Pictures That Device Puts Out? I'm Sorry But Anyone Who's Seen The Facts Would Agree That The 5S Has A Superior Camera
-- Design Wise, I Think The Galaxy Devices Are Just Horrible, (But That's Me) And The iPhones Just Look Good.
-- But When It Comes To The Displays, You Gotta Give It To Sammy, Apple Can't Cut It There
-- And All The Little KnicKnacks Like A Removable Battery, SD Card Slot, IR? I Hv To Admit, Individually, I Don't Think They'r A Deal Breaker For Anyone (Or Atleast Me), But All Together, They Kinda Make You Wanna Slap The Apple Guys Upside The Head
-- Conclusion: I Own A 5S, I Love My Phone, My Sister Owns A S4, She Loves Her Phone, We'r Both Very Happy And Enjoy Reading All Your Comments With A Bag Of Popcorn In Hand =]
