Well... i think the people who buy apple products hardly use it for daily stuffs..but it has become a fashion statement to carry apple products and earn Admiration among their pears..
For a country with 1.4 milliard people is it so strange?
Or is it an article to keep Apple in the news?
ok apy, 27 Jan 2015All the hate, all the comments from droid fanboys,so much nonsense,,,, but still apple rules..... moreReal techies buy stuff based on their own needs, the usability of the product and how much value it delivers which is why Android has 80% market share in the real smartphone user community. iOS doesn't even properly qualify as a smartphone OS by today's standards. People who really "need" smartphones have no real choice in the market currently except Android.
iPhones are usually bought by the wannabes. Majority of iPhone community is filled with users who barely use their iPhone for making calls and texting (and maybe a few of them use Facebook and twitter as well) and want to pretend that they are techies or that they are rich enough to throw money on a gadget that they really don't have any need for.
This sort of market is not by any means a coincidence. Steve Jobs strived to build it and collect users who will not nitpick about lack of functionality and will gladly spend a premium every year to get half arsed products. When some guy put a sample app that does absolutely noting and put into the Apple app store at $999, 10 people bought it bought it was pulled out by Apple. That alone proves the kind of market Apple managed to build up. It is a dream market of every business entity.
That's how you do business, be ruthless. Don't worry about money, you can get it back from the supporter cult.
I dont like Apple's... Too pricey for the low-cost, low specs & low tech smartphones
aviS., 26 Jan 2015Don't bring Rolex or Ferrari in this,Iphone is premium like Ferari or Rolex.I don't own nothin... moreHow many people in this earth own Ferrari? How many people own iphones? That will tell you whether iphone is a real royal device to be obsessed with. This comparison with Ferrari has to stop. It is just not fair.
Anonymous, 26 Jan 2015Because i know many indians, ( i am indian), want only the apple loho on back ti show off.... ... moreNo, I am Indian too.. Apple is better in every corner, Samsung has very poor usability.. From the start i have used the iphones, and my friends too,, but One of my classmates have recently bought the s4, he always tries to show off, that how his s4 is better than our iphone.. so who is actually showing off?
All the hate, all the comments from droid fanboys,so much nonsense,,,, but still apple rules... why are they so jealous, their android phones have so much custom ability, so much big screens, even 6.4" s LOL.. but why is samsung losing markets, why is apple gaining it.. oh yes they consider all the millions people, who buy iphones are isheep.. oh god. such idiots.. People who are true tech lovers, don't go for the best sounding hardware and stupid tons of features which are hardly used, but for the one which they love, which they can use properly to complete daily necessities..
Do u know , China have 1.3B ppl. U didn't know now China have more then 650M millionaire. Poor u!
this is obvious, i dont see why ppl are surprised, USA has an already strong apple base with different versions of previous iPhones models like 5 and 5s, and the market is already saturated, in china the recent deal with apple easily exposed iPhones to new more ppl, of course the adoption of first time users will be more and so in china.
Anonymous, 26 Jan 2015What happened to all the iPhone killers LOLthey're stunned when they rrad this post... or they are back on there shells crying out loud due to this news...lol
"Apple, with high-end iPhones alone, poised to outsell Samsung’s total smartphone sales"
In the end Apple always wins
Reaper.s1000rr, 26 Jan 2015The Apple Juggernaut cannot be stopped. True.
Taken the US, Japan and now China.
Anonymous, 26 Jan 2015In short they are not poor, cause they can afford Apple...
You know how expensive iPhone is r... moreAn iPhone cost their entire salary for 2-3 months and in the past it didn't even support 3G on their carrier (China Mobile), so they use it on 2G or Wifi or just use it for voice calls. Talk about wasting money on a status item, how much status it now gives when every peasant has one.
Of course, lots of people in the west can't actually afford an iPhone either without "buying" it on credit (aka carrier subsidization).
Anonymous, 26 Jan 2015Your article doesn't really support your point of Apple destroying Samsung in their own countr... moreJust to remind you Apple is the 2nd place now in market shareholder in korea...and Apple launch phones once every year and it sold a lot of phones, samsung release dozens of phone in a yr but the profit are declining...
It would be suprising if Apple will dominate in korea one of this days isn't it?
