Ritwik1992, 15 Sep 2013The Economic Times says that iPhone users are 71% in UK.Here's another link for you. This one is Comscore
In the USA, after apple gained ground on Android, Apple 40.4% vs Android 51.8% marketshare.
Still waiting for your link.
Ritwik1992, 15 Sep 2013The Economic Times says that iPhone users are 71% in UK.Actually even in the USA; Apple grew a LOT; and even then they have a 41% market vs 51% for Android.
Even in the USA android has the biggest marketshare.
There is no country in the world where iOS has the biggest marketshare. Not 1.
Ritwik1992, 15 Sep 2013I have been replying this to most people since the morning but all are running behind specs. A... moreI agree. What really matters is how the phone performs for what you're using it.
Android has gone through Project Butter and manufacturers, like HTC (notorious for crap Sense), LG and others have optimized their UI to give users a buttery smooth and fast experience.
My iphone isn't smooth all the time, and I've used iPhones that are laggy as hell full of games (my students from primary school).
You have to give it to android. Ill give you the performance was crap before but, their handsets of late are optimized and running buttery smooth. You should try them.
Ritwik1992, 15 Sep 2013The Economic Times says that iPhone users are 71% in UK.Really?
Ok. Ill provide you a link that tells you the marketshare of ios and android in first world countries including the UK. Even after Android slipped it held 55% in the UK vs Iphone 31%. Germany is even worse where iOS has 11% share vs Android 76%. Same everywhere else in the world.
Ok. Now give us your link that says it is 70% in the UK.

How could you justify android lags hangs and overheating problems. When Samsung S4 and Htc one launched, I sold my iPhone 5 and bought S4 and then htc one. But boht disappointed me despite of their so called multi cores they both specially S4 hangs so many times. And several times I've to pull out battery of S4. And heating problem in both phones when playing games. So I switch back to iPhone 5 again. And yes! There is no match of apps quality between iOS and android. iOS is far better than android and no lags. No hangs. No force close. No restarts. No overheat.
Tcool, 15 Sep 2013O yeah the crap and expensive iOS apps.iOS isn't for Cheap, jobless android users. They might try HTC, Samsung etc.
If you don't have a credit card than don't talk about iOS or Apple.
[deleted post]You're wrong. Apple ink dominates the USA.
In the UK, for example; Android has a 56% marketshare and Apple has 30%.

True. Android is the most used mobile OS in the world. Apple only really dominates in the USA. They're simple to use; they're built well and you can get them super cheap on contract.
Now that I live in Thailand and have to pay cash for my phones (there aren't any contracts in many countries around the world), the last iPhone I'm buying is the one I bought 2 years ago. The iPhone 4S. That's it for me.
My next phone will be android. People will only understand when they have to pay cash money for an iPhone how difficult it is to justify that purchase.
I like iPhone, but for example. Here in thailand.
iPhone 5s 16GB = $750
LG G2 32GB = $624
And the G2 comes with free Bluetooth headset, free screen film and Insurance that covers accidental damage and other damage like dropping it in the water AND theft.
That and we don't have to mention all the technology packed in the G2, for example just the camera, which blows the iPhone 5s camera out of the water.
It will be extremely difficult for Apple to gain considerable market share in this side of the world if they stick to their price scheme.
You can get so much more for less when you pay cash over here.
and androids here are unlocked as they come from the manufacturer. No carrier bloat or anything like that which may contribute to the lagginess or god knows what other issues.
This phone is.. Good.. But people who are anti- androids Should know that android rules over ios.. And it is the most popular os in the world....
Fvck, 14 Sep 2013Too many bitterness people. If ur not a fan, then go get ur laggy droids with 4 or 8 cores wha... moreYou need to relax. It's just for fun. We know people will buy what they want.
Just come in and leave it as "Annonymous" then say
"I'm confused. Galaxy S4, Note 3 or iPhone 5s. Which to buy! Please help me?"
Then laugh at all the responses.
5 out of 10 for Performance ?? this clearly show the kind of people write comments here. iPhone has almost the best performance. U may dislike its features or design but performance !! OMG !!
Biltec, 15 Sep 2013Specs dont matter, real life performance does you open up 10 apps and then start a high graphic game, i am sure it will lag in any other phone except iPhone with confidence.
If you are so keen about spec then iPhone 5S has the only 64bit system. Keep that a huge count.
Thunder blaster, 15 Sep 2013celebrities and all important people use iphone only for app store...
Iphone is use for app s... moreiPhone is a different level of mobile that normal users won't understand. Its good that most people use cheap and crab OS like Android, Windows. That's why we iPhone users get the celebrity treatment.
You can't just buy an iPhone you have to earn it.
Actually if you look at iPhone 5S its a old design phone with that smae specs. Its good for gaming but not as much as android. 80% all apps are paid in appstore or itunes. I hate you apple.
iPhone not for all people, u hate it do not buy it, I will. Samfan, just keep away with ur toy phones.
