However my feeling is that a lot of the popularity and attraction of iphones in Asia is that they are American and there is a perception - rightly or wrongly - that all things American are the latest and greatest and most technologically advanced. Whilst this may have well been so for earlier models I feel that the opposition has now caught up and Apple no longer enjoys the supremacy that it once had.
I have used Nokia's 701, Samsung S3 and Note 4 before converting into an Apple fan.
Well, I am very pleased with the following:
1) Aesthetics: The design is very nice. The size is also perfect maybe because I have used a Note 4 and found that I don't quite like phablets.
2) Functionality: iPhone 6 is easy to use. The response rate when activating/closing apps is very quick. I am quite pleased to note that IOS 8 allows the user to block calls and messages (SMS). The bigger android models of Samsung allows for that but the phones will register all block calls in the call logs. iPhones with IOS 8 will not register anything so it gives me a peace of mind (self opinion).
3) Other things that I like: Preset ringtones and wallpapers, "Find my iPhone" function, closure of apps (killing tasks),icloud, CALL QUALITY, ease of messaging, etc...
Wished I had started off with the iPhone 4. However, if I hadn't tried other platforms (android/symbian/etc), I wouldn't have appreciated IOS much.
The camera needs some more improvements though. (Nevertheless, it is still a phone!) The keyboard should have some more improvements but that can be solved by downloading a 3rd party keyboard.
Daily interest for this phone just keeps growing and already crossed 50% are the haters with full force or where this big growing coming lately.

I have never said that, there isnt such a thing called best phone, everyone have own opinion which is best, you really cant compare iOS phone to android phone and say which one is best because they both have pros and cons and yet you are doing exactly that... :D
Thats why i don't answer to your comments because i already know it doesnt get anywhere because you can't accept the fact that for lot of people iPhone actually is the best phone, for example to me, nothing can't beat iPhone in things which i need from my phone/tablet.

Why? :D uou have siri and the spotlight search, why you need to through pages and pages?
"not to mention that the back button is sometimes at the right or left upper side of the screen,"
You don't need back button just swipe from any part from left of screen to right and there's your back button, very handy!
Why is there so much QQ over die hard Apple/Droid fanboys.
It's a phone.
It does it's job, it makes calls, sends texts and allows you to browse internet and use apps.
Truth of the matter is both iPhone and flagship Droids have their pro's and con's.
Just get over it you wetties.

Denying the fact that S6/M9 is better than the Iphone 6. " And yet you are here... :D". I wasn't planning to flame on this phone in the first place until I saw comments like yours that "Iphone is the best phone" which clearly is not. "Why you got so mad about the fact that People in China want iPhone more than anything else?" I EVEN TOLD YOU THAT IT WAS POPULAR AND I DIDN'T DENY THAT AND YET YOUR JUST REPOINTING WHAT YOU POINTED OUT WHICH I AGREED TO BECAUSE YOU CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING ELSE TO SAY AND YOU ARE WEAK IN YOUR COMMENTS. And if your talking to China wanting an Iphone then you're clearly talking to the wrong person child. I'm pretty sure I know more things that happen in China than you do. Despite China is the most populated country at the minute and I'm pretty sure fakes are taken in account to them "sales" because of the population and also it is slightly cheaper.

There are countless phones that are faster and heat up less than iphones...if by fast you mean 'fast draining battery', then fair enough...i see people with their iphones desperately searching for a cable before lunchtime, because the phone barely lasts half a day...
Also, it's far from simple...you have to go through pages and pages of apps you will never use, because the cheap OI doesn't even allow un-installation of preloaded apps...not to mention that the back button is sometimes at the right or left upper side of the screen, opposite to the home button which takes up half the phone...
It's one thing to like this phone because of fandom or whatever illogical argument, but to call it the best phone out there, is plain delusional. Not one magazine or reviewer places it above the S6 or M9 and in most cases it does not even make a top 5...
The one argument left for iphone users is that their phone is expensive so in their mind that equals with quality. Yet there are countless devices that cost more than the i6. So by your logic, i shall use the same, and consider that most iphone users can't afford the Edge and hence they stick to cheap iphones...

Very sad way to have to live.

Perhaps your psychologist wife suggested it to you because she sensed that you need something to make you feel like a man. ENJOY!
iPhone is for those who needs life fast and simple ...
Technically comparing to any other phones, iphone has very high touch responsive rate, perfect HD screen not like Sam galaxies screen violet screen while fast moving screen and moving home pages.( this will experienced by only very few)... Apart from this, iPhone 6 is ram 1gb only but runs very fast, you can feel this when suddenly jumping from one app to another app.

Every time I make 3 counter arguments or more against you, you can only provide a pathetic single excuse. I'M NOT GOING TO DENY THAT IPHONE DOES SELL ALOT (and don't even think about quoting this as a lame point against me) BUT THAT DOES NOT MAKE IT THE BEST PHONE. You can't merely just judge a phone on the way it sells. Yes it may be popular. But most people like myself just pity on people that have Iphones. So what about the counter argument against the S6/M9 camera? Videoing? Battery? Display? Hardware? Come back to me whenever you can think of an argument against that because you ignore the fact that those points are better than Iphone on paper and funny enough on what paper does matter.
