n34s, 15 Jan 2014What is the same common fault? The only same common fault I have ever come across is user err... moreThe power button continuously sticks or ceases to work completley. I have encountered this fault mutiple times with varying age of phone, most commonly is around 6 months old. This points to a design flaw in my opinion if its the same fault over and over. All phones have faults its just some are more prominent than others

Dot-WiFi, 15 Jan 2014thats because u used ur phone like u gonna kill it.... I don't have an iphone as they are overpriced "decent" phones. I work in the telecoms industry and see how many become faulty with the same common fault. Only 1 iphone has ever had good build quality and that was the 4S all others have been appalling.
Just only 1 million iPhone5S for 1 nearly billion peoples? That's 0.1% - such a small attractions to the newest iPhone

They can not. Good for you.:-)
How many phones are sold in US per year?Per month?
One mill? Is the population of US 780 mill? Are they all buying smartphones every year?
Go back to my comments (if not deleted) to see about "envy" referance.
Why GSMA don't delete your commens?
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2014If you think all 760 million of china telecom's customers are potential smartphone customers, ... morewe just need 2 customer out of 760,and they will be SEVERELY back-order
its not hard to achieve,chinese has a lot $$ nowadays
Be Cool, 15 Jan 2014Do you really think that EVEN only-stationary phone ppl(if any), are not potential smartphone ... moreWhat the heck is a stationary phone? You mean a landline? Lol. Who's talking about that? China mobile doesn't do landlines. You really have no idea what you are talking about, do you? Are you really naive enough to think that all 760 million people are in the market to change there phones this year? Of the people who are in the market for a phone, how many will buy smartphones? Of those, how many are looking to buy high end smartphones? Of those how many live in the 14 cities that have China mobile's 4G now? Do you think simple marketshare is the only metric for success that companies have? Who said anything about envying Apple?
Maybe when you graduate from high school and get a job in the real world (if you can get past an entry level position) you will understand how business operates. Until then, I understand why everyone here calls you a troll and you get lots of your comments deleted.

Or you think that having stationary phone is cheaper to have than pre-paid-card full paid smartphone and using free hot-spots for for voip calls?
So tell us- what % is one mill of 780 mill? And why should one envy Apple?
"Sandy Shen commented: "We have seen fading enthusiasm for iPhones compared with the past few years as we have more choices in China now. There has been no dramatic change to the iPhone, and consumers want a larger screen size."?

China people believe in savings and money for long run. You buy other android phones.. in 2 years time it cost nothing..
The close nature of the OS is no big deal. So long as i can play games/browse net/watch shows/listen music smoothly.. whats the big lost?
I do not need to have a octa core phone.. ending up lagging because of a unoptimized OS...
Be Cool, 15 Jan 2014And what they buy from China Mobile? Shoes?Really? You can't figure out what other type of phone people might buy from a carrier besides a smartphone? You have set a new intellectual nadir for Android fanboys everywhere.

Be Cool, 14 Jan 2014"Cry"????? LOL Can you calculate , what % is 1 million of 760 million and tell us? ... moreIf you think all 760 million of china telecom's customers are potential smartphone customers, you are out of your mind.
Anonymous, 14 Jan 2014Wooow.Apple haters who read this news will cry.HAHAHA"Cry"????? LOL
Can you calculate , what % is 1 million of 760 million and tell us?
(Hope they will sell this million, though.)
And how does it stays with the statement:
"We have seen fading enthusiasm for iPhones compared with the past few years as we have more choices in China now. There has been no dramatic change to the iPhone, and consumers want a larger screen size."
By the way - no Apple haters here. We just mock at you zombies, for fun. Like the whole World do. (And even Tim Cook call you "Unique Breed")
Anonymous, 14 Jan 2014That smartphone you are calling feature phone has a touch ID that is a lot better than on lapt... moreIt's a featurephone because of the OS, not the hardware, which, frankly, isn't stellar. I wonder, if the 5s would run Android, would it top Linpack? The camera is not much good either, the screen and battery are quite small, it doesn't have a card slot, yet it costs more than any other phone. iPhones aren't a good investment for these hardware-related reasons alone, not to mention the quasi-obsolete iOS.
