The world is going Apple because they seem to have brainwashed millions of people into... more99% satisfaction rate? What do you expect? It's been less than half a year since the phone has been on the market and it does nothing but phone text and go on the internet...it has no features, no personality, no nothing...what do you expect?
I am sure the latest Bieber and One Direction album have 99% customer satisfaction rating, despite millions of reviewer and humans disliking them tremendously.
You can probably expect the same percentage from any phone over £300 on the market in the first 6 months.
That just proves how futile and easily satisfied the iphone user is.
I bet that in 2030 when iphones will be waterproof and have a 9MP camera the satisfaction rating will be 100%. And the rest of us will be laughing histerically whist watching this on 20K resolution holograms springing out of our phones.
The world is going Apple because they seem to have brainwashed millions of people into believing that their products are actually worth the ridiculous prices they charge for them"
Again this brainwash crap, sure you can brainwash over 500 million people all over again. Customers satisfaction rate for new iPhones are 99% highest ever. So how those people again are brainwashed? :D
And yes iPhones and all Apple products are worth of their price and even more. I would personally pay two times of price for iPhone if i would have to use android device instead.
"iPhone 6 and 6 Plus receiving a 99 percent customer satisfaction score"
Users are extremely happy with their iPhones, not surprising
the best phone on the market at the minute but all those android users out there!!!! get a grip and realize that the world is going apple and will always be apple
i used an iphone 4s,later when iphone 5s was released ibought iphone 5s for the fingerprint sensor,first i was happy with,but later i get irritated all the time time i use this phone,everytime i "CANT DO THIS,CANT DO THAT! " which an midrange android phone can do.Most people say that iphone is simple,but its not.So,next time dont get an iphone..
Everyone I leave the car my phone is not leaving SYNC mode. The phone does not ring or make any sounds unless I turn Bluetooth off. Any ideas???

C... moreIt's funny to see how you are changing the song every time when the facts hit you in the face in this argument. At first iPhone was the best of the best in everything.. now it's just simple....:-)..my Asus have an option called simple mode.. it has icons of most important futures like dining, SMS, clock, calculator and it looks just like IOS... Let's just agree that iPhone is just for snoobs.. They invented the smart phones and now they are making phones that there is nothing smart about..
xHannibal Lecter, 10 Mar 2015Pear , if you work in a phone shop , than you should praise all the phones , after all it does... moreWell, it's working rather well, this is my forth consecutive period as top salesman in my region (16 phoneshops). Customers enjoy honesty. Don't get me wrong, if you were to come along to our phoneshop, you who obviously values pushy tasteless sales techniques over honesty and kindness, i would happily sell you an iphone. I am not trying to convince everybody i see that iphones are a rip-off. There are some people who deserve them, their heads will explode if they would have a good android phone...you know your lines "i'm a simple man with simple taste...i don't want any of that widgets and personality". Isn't that iphone's tagline?
Pear, 10 Mar 2015We are all deflecting it. WPear , if you work in a phone shop , than you should praise all the phones , after all it doesnt matter what you sell it matters to sell as much as possible , if you really work in a phone shop you are a terrible seller , for a seller all expensive flagship phones are the best , and if a user wants a iphone why the hell would you sell him a g3? you make less money! Sell him that iphone and accesories and everything he can use with the phone , hah i cannot belive this , salesman , i wounder that you still have a job.

No other phone breaks so easily, the fact that apple brainwash you by replacing it should make you think why the phone broke down in the first place, rather than the fact that you walked out of the Apple store with a new phone.
And it's fun deflecting it. We all do in this shop, and guess what, loads of customers have thanked us for it...PC Advisor's Best Smartphones of 2015 is constantly on our computers. And we have a game where we guess what brand one likes when they come through the door...i usually get it 95% of the time right.
In this shop, about 10% of the contracts we do are iphones, yet easily over 50% of the issue related phone calls we get come from the ones that bought iphones...
And 3 years? I had a Galaxy Ace 2 before my LG G3 for 3 years...it worked fantastic, quite slow and not super intuitive, but it never broke down. It was £120 when i bought it almost 4 years ago and i still sold it for £50 on amazon for somebody else to use probably for another 2-3 years...and guess what, never used a case for it or a screen protector.
Whereas all iphone users tend to love how their ugly device looks like, yet they always cover it with some even uglier plastic case with bieber, one direction, jesus or unicorns on it...
Pear, 09 Mar 2015With all due respect, it is so easy to notice the generic iphone and flagship android buyer.
... moreyou don't speak for all consumers.
The reason why I have an iphone6 is becaues I know it will last more then 3 years.
The company itself have a very good reputation of helping their customers.
The quality of the phone is also very good. Totally aware that android does have some have some nice features, but to me it's a phone. nothing more, I'm not a nerd, nor a geek. I need a phone of perfection and the iphone6 delivers. It will work for a long time, and I am also aware of androids downfalls such as lollipop not working well on certain phones in manufacturered in 2014. You say you work at a store, and we find it b.s that you are actually grouping iphone and android users. fyi, my first phone was an iphone it was a gift.
now pls stop posting. Your not achieving anything. If your trying to deflect sales, you will fail. you will fail badly.

I am very satisfy with the performance and so far no disspoint me.. My colleague always say " i phone is stand for idot phone" that time I was using i phone 4. Its really slow and laggy as old technology with support ios7. But recently he bought a Huawei mate 7 (flagship phone) and challenge the speed of opening an same apps like "waze and google map" unfortunately the so call "octa core" lost with "dual core" of an i phone...what a shame on "so call octa core" moral of the story dont judge the book by its cover..the on paper spec sometime is bullshit one...

I am not going to judge that 3 buttons ... moreWhat are you talking about?
Is Apple paying you to say this things?
There seems to be this general consensus amongst iphone fans that their phones are easier to use. They are not! I find it most frustrating that they don't even have the home and back button next to one another, they're on the opposite side of the screen. If i search for something on Youtube and then want to reply to my friend on Whats App, i need to leave Youtbe and reply, can't do both at the same time, whilst letting the video run in the background. The list could go on.
I have recently been persuaded to buy an iphone 6. I used an iphone 4s in the past and whilst it was ok, I found it incredibly dull, difficult and restrictive - i remember having to rename all the songs in my library, having to stick to their browser and player, etc.
Then I had a Samsung S4, which i didn't really like a lot, but it was easily better and more innovative than the 4s. After that I had an HTC M8 which was absolutely fantastic in every regard. And now i thought i would give iphones another chance, because i went after word of mouth instead of trusting the reviews (which were more like 'meh, nothing special, let's move on').
IT'S THE SAME AS IPHONE 4S!! Just a bit bigger. Nothing has changed! How can a company bank on the same phone 5 years in a row?
Look at Zedge! It's so fun to have your phone's ringtone by the Girls, Game of Thrones or Terminator tune. For free! It's so difficult to do the same stuff on iphones. they are so restrictive it is doing my head in that people actually pay money for this phone.
Let's do an imagination excercise: An alien race lands on earth and we explain to them the concept of smartphones. We then hand them this phone that runs fairly decent and does what we explained. The we give them this other phone that does exactly the same but allows the wee alien to change things about, to get rid of apps he will never use, to do 2 things at the same time, to download as much music, ringtones for free and assure him that if the phone drops in a puddle it will actually survive the drop and the water. Which phone will he choose?
This guy Anonymous is so off the mark, it's funny. People don't buy iphones because they are reliable or simple to use - Pear is right - you maybe have 20% who do, the fans, who you can give the exact same terrible phone year after year and they flock to it...but most people buy it for the brand, because they heard from someone that without an iphone you won't get recognized, etc...
It really is that sad...i empathize with what Pear is saying. At my daughter's school you are a nobody without an iphone...it has gotten to that stage...she got lucky now, she will probably have mine for her birthday, whilst i will go back to a phone that lasts longer than 80 minutes when you watch an HD video.
Meladyx, 09 Mar 2015But by your logic the only thing that makes an android phone 'too complicated' as implied is t... moreWhat you might see as trivial may not be to others.
I am not going to judge that 3 buttons of Android or putting shortcuts on the launch screen or opening the app drawer, because its gonna drag too long. But needless to say its not easy to manage for first timers. Just look at most android phone users out there, most of the time you see the default wallpaper, some do not even know how to drag shortcuts to their launcher screen.
Thats why you see Samsung, trying so hard to customise touchwiz, making simple mode of the launcher.
Even Pear's comment you can see it, people are amaze of Android's different capabilities, wow! you can do this, do that. But ultimately were they sold? No. Why? Because people DO not really care about whats technology geeks, they just want something that they know how to use and are comfortable to use, and like Pear say, the looks of the phone.
For people like ourselves, who are fortunate to have tried all kinds of phones, used PC / Mac before, use internet, surely find Android as easy as iOS. And because of those old legacy hardware/software we are affected by drag and drop.. bt transfer.. old ways of doing things.
But for most people, this ease of iOS make it the most desired phone despite its price. While Android, it can only compete with lower price and people who buy it would use iPhone if they choose.
Anonymous, 09 Mar 2015The behaviour of the customers who come into your shop have nothing to do with the phone.
I... moreBut by your logic the only thing that makes an android phone 'too complicated' as implied is the fact that they have three buttons instead of one.
On a Android you can also mash an icon and the app opens. Imagine that?
You can also press the home button and then go to another app, just like you said you can do with an iPhone!
But seriously, comparing the functionality and complications of cell phones to rocket science is a waste of time.
Now Samsung is manufacturing metal phones with glass on both sides!
Hello Sammy we are in 2015 !
I like my iPhone 6 - 64 GB ..
Its much better than any Android device
Pear, 09 Mar 2015To give you a representative example of what i wrote before, last week, we had 3 girls around ... moreThe behaviour of the customers who come into your shop have nothing to do with the phone.
In fact what you see is the true testament of iPhone. Its ability to work and use by people of any age / any knowledge about technology shows its success.
The money you give is actually all the R&D and careful though put into this device, to make it user friendly, quality, performance and beauty. Its more then just specs, like those invested by android phone makers.
In the end, technology should be transparent to the user, user do not need to be rocket scientist. Look at iPhone, its design is very simple and its approach is as such, Want Youtube? Mash the youtube button. Want to go home? Mash the single button on the device. It only provide the complex features on if want basis, "double click home button" brings up multi-task, which is not needed if you do not want. etc. You can always mash the home button.. then select another task.
