iPhone 5s is a good low end phone but Apple cheapened out with only 1GB DRAM so it suffers too many low memory crashes if you have multiple Safari browser tabs opened or running multiple apps.

Understandable, the iPhone is still classed as top-end in Pakistan, India and now China.

Everybody hating because the exact opposite of their prediction is happening. Apple dominating yet another market with their "cheap can phone" and its "iOS is behind and will go down" OS. Now with their iphone being available on the worlds biggest carrier, I doubt that Apple's marketshare will drop sometime soon.

iPhone 5s is a low end phone so it's understandable as not everyone need a high end Note 3.

Yes seeing as this is the only phone apple has vs Samsung which has two compelling buys, the S4 and Note 3 it would be logical...

Doesn't matter that much, iOS will go down, Android will stay on top and Windows phone will go stronger...
