Apple's main market is in the US, but it turns out that proportionally the company has the largest fanbase in Japan. Analyst firm Kantar is reporting that Apple's iPhones accounted for a whopping 76% of smartphone sales in Japan in the month of October.
61% of smartphones sold through the country's biggest carrier, NTT DoCoMo, were iPhones, reports Kantar.
It's not clear how much the iPhone 5c has contributed to the total number, there are plenty of reports of low demand (outside of Japan anyway) and reductions of manufacturing capacity dedicated to the 5c.
In the US at least, the iPhone 5s outsold the 5c by 40% in October, according to the analysts.
so your saying that apple phone is different to a samsung phone? is that what your tryin to say? when did a phone different to another phone? they serve the same purpose on calling, sending sms, internet, etc..
what?? what are saying? what the hell is wrong with you??
Making money from selling phones means there is more money available for supporting them, customer care lines, retail outlets, service centres and swapping faulty phones all cost money to the manufacturer.
