Pastor TB, 25 Mar 2015Well,my independent opinion is that iPhone 6 is the good design comparing to previous iPhones ... moreQuality,Durability and uniqness all are in htc too so stop this form factor thing ifans plz its getting really boring now,you have nothing new to say.
Duel, 24 Mar 2015"only Samsung sells more than apple.."
I thought we were talking about highend FL... moreI see only problem with other brands is way too many phones "samsung", idea stealing, overpowering , fanboys, and"inovation" WHY DO YOU NEED AN INNOVATION FOR A PERFECT PHONE??? I mean cmon "LG rummored to have an 3k display" WHY? So you could loose battery qucker?? iphone stays in the middle and sticks with elegance, design and simplicity thats why there is just something about it, it was the first in the buissnes and it is the best because it knows what people want not just overpowerd specs. It does not need a beast of a proccesor if IOS is working perfectly and can do multitasking without high specs. unlike samsung "Samsungs touch ID can now rival those of Apple by preccison" yea but it still sucks because people at samsung are not so skilled at programing. im not an apple fanboy, im a win

I can say riding Samsung can be same as as BMW through with iPhone is same as Mercedes.Android is more user friendly and popular comparing to iOS!!Iphone is hassle free in terms of technical faults comparing to iPhone!!Quality,durability,sense of status and uniqueness is what makes us iPhone users to be distinguished amongst most.....well am not a stereotype am still open for other opinions

Actually if you add every android flagship phones sales together Apple is selling more.
And now with bigger iPhones Apple is fighting for every potential flagship user everytime. So its even harder for those android oems to sell their flagship models.
Android share coming from lowend sales.

And it sells good becose it's the only phone with IOS and there is a lot lost "simle" people, and people with complexes, snoobs whom both that phone of vanity and low self-esteem becose to have iPhone is really a symbol of wealth in some poor countries. 70%of iPhone holders both it for those reasons, not because it's a good phone. So.. Stop fooling your self and other people in that forum!
Pear, 24 Mar 2015Yes, hence why i said what i said.
Do you really think that a majority of iphone users, ev... moreThe reason why iPhone sell so well is same why samaung had great times. Its easy an afe choice, so many have them and saying how good it is and you can test it etc. Same goes for samsung phones.
The problem with samsung was their devices didnt meet those expectations and their sales last year was horrible. Otherhand IPhone selling better and better which says people also like the product a lot. So that brand name of course helps but the product has to be great too.
This same works for me in TV business, i bought new very big TV and i chosed samsung because in TV samaung is safe bet for me. If i put 2000e to TV i really dont cant try anything brand which i doesnt know or feel safe.
And this exact reason samaung tv business is doing so well, because samsung is like synonym for TV for most.
Also for this same reason Mac computers doesn't sell even when iOS devices selling like crazy. Mac isn't that easy safe choice in world of windows.
Duel, 24 Mar 2015Normal people doesnt buy lg g3 neither m8 that's why their sales are so bad, so your comment i... moreYes, hence why i said what i said.
Do you really think that a majority of iphone users, even the "normal people" choose that phone because they have researched the options?
Put your love for the phone aside for a second and think about it. Go to a suburbia school here in the UK, 90% of the teens have iphones. Why? Because it's cool to have one, if you don't have one, you are not part of the pack. Go to China or other developing patriarchal societies where materialism rules. Girls there won't look at you if you don't have the iphone 6, even the iphone 5 is regarded as a symbol of 'being poor'.
Apple have been incredibly smart and know about all this. It's a status symbol. And there's nothing wrong with that. I just wish it would actually do something innovative or interesting for me to buy into it, but it doesn't. So, in the meanwhile, i prefer to stick with phones that are actually amazing and innovative. Even the little "gimmick" that my LG G3 has no buttons on any of the sides at all, is brilliant for me. Every phone i pick up now i inadvertently double tap, forgetting that there is some button somewhere on the sides that i will press on by mistake when watching something...
It's little things like that, that make other brands and phone offer something over the generic smartphone, which the iphone is...it is the best generic smartphone. Well, i don't want to be generic x

Of course there's lot more normal people and not tech people owning iPhones, because iPhone sales are six times bigger than lg g3 or m8
Most times non tech people are chosing iPhone and samsung phones and they do i for same reason.

I have a colleague who is an Apple fanatic and he says point blank that he will buy the next iphone even if it's worse than the iphone 3gs.
No one is denying the marketing power of apple and iphones. I own an imac and i like it a lot. Planning to get a 5k retina display one soon. I am one of those rational people who is not owned by one brand and like diversity and innovation. Sadly, when it comes to phones, iphones are not the best. They just aren't.
If you ask most LG G3 or HTC M8 users why they love their phone they will give you a lengthy logical answer, involving display, battery life, innovative features, etc. If you ask the average iphone user why they love their iphone, it is usually "i don't know, there is just something about it".
It's quite simple, iphones have divided the world...the logical and introspective people looking for technological quality get flagship androids and the emotional and impulsive people buying iphones. Nothing wrong with that. One thing is for sure, no one buys Windows :)
[deleted post]Your thought is yourself. You can continue to blame everything else, and stay as confused as ever.
But trust me. So long as Apple continues to make products with love. It will never go down. There will always be people who will buy it.
A Guy and his iPhone
[deleted post]“The poll found that about 25 percent of all iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus purchases came from users who are new to the iPhone platform, mostly Android switchers,”
Already around 20 million android switchers in just six months. That guy was exactly right, its hard to explain what is it which always make android users coming back to Apple. I see these people every day who are saying "its nice to come back to home." When they have used android phone for year or two and saying iPhone 6 is best phone they ever have had.
So what that guy talk about love and Apple actually makes a lot sense. Apple devices have that something and it could be very well real passion and love for making these devices and users feeling it too.
I see nothing new in this iphone ios 7 and 8 is the same thing the only thing that is new is nfc and a larger display

Out of the box, shiny iPhone, in a few touch, it became my good o'ld iPhone that i knew and love before. The old iphone now dead, after transfering it's soul to the new one, lay there beside me. Sadden, but never look back, onward on my iPhone and my life, and explore what this new one will bring.
Where the real world, fanboys fight for specs, benchmarks and features. I just sit on the side, wondering why no one realise why iPhone is treasured: its love, not only from me, but from the people who created the phone.
Love is the only true reason people will pay, its the only reason ipod beat zune, walkman. Its the only reason they are willing to push the boundaries, embracing new ways of doing things, willing to remove old ways.
