There is nothing like Apple & whem I say it don't mean software or hardware,none the less they are top notch if not always the best. It's the brand value. Today's world is brand contious & Apple has the brand recognition people pay for. Problem with High end Android phones is they just don't stand out & they is almost no recognition.
only one way any company can make this much profit.by selling low price phone on a much higher price....But dont worry Ifans still wont use their minds.they just want to see their company on top(by their own money...lol)
Don't get too excited guys. It's just a profit margin. Since Apple makes an iPhone for less than 200 usd and selling it for nearly 700 usd. Its so obvious they make profits. They are not pocket-friendly company. Go for Android/Windows phones if you want value for your precious buck.
this is just Showing tht which people r paying more to a smart phone.And which company is selling overpriced phone.
mralam, 27 Feb 2015Apple have the advantage of separate osBut but it is a limited os with ABSOLUTELY SERO FEATURES? why do people in the millions buy it? maybe it is the best? I think im gonna drop my laggy droid and go for it.
"Apple’s strategy of premium products and lean logistics is proving hugely profitable," the research firm said, adding that "Android’s weak profitability for its hardware partners will worry Google."
In that statement lies the grand illusion. There are plenty of people who actually believe that because of the marketing. The facts say differently. There have been more bugs associated with major release of Apple Software and new phones than any other manufacturer in the past 4 years.
Best OS on the market right now it Blackberry 10.3 - it's not even close. But Blackberry doesn't have a good marketing strategy and most people think why bother because they aren't a big player anymore.
Hardware wise there are plenty of flagships with better features & functionality, but overall best value has to go to the Motorola Moto Maxx. That phone is a monster with great features and performance for a price that doesn't have you eating ramen noodles for lunch for the next month to pay for it.
If you're happy with your iphone, good for you. But some of us aren't obsessed with having a phone with the fruit logo in our pocket and want value for a quality product.
But but but Android has 90% market share? the butthurts will say.

People predicted Apple's doom back when 4s was released and look where the company is now.
Reading these comments is so much fun :
LoL - Just goes to show plenty of people are willing to pay a silly premium for a device that's just another average Chinese built phone. But hey, if that Apple icon makes you feel better about things, go for it ;)
What happened to all the iPhone killers.?? Don't blame it on Apple they are just a business and you buy at your own will. The problem here actually lies in Android. I believe they have the largest world wide market share with something in the 80%. But from cut throat competition it is Killing itself. Apple doesn't have to do anything, they just sit and watch Samsung, Lenovo, etc. Kill each other. Hey that's reality. If you want to be an Apple you need to be first not 2nd, 3rd. Remember 2nd is first loser.
Anonymous51, 27 Feb 2015I'm sure you guys are well aware of how crapple is profiting from you with midrange specs and ... moreEven Android manufacturers price their devices in same range but only thing is they don't sell well because nobody trusts spending $600+ money on non-Apple product.
You want to know luxury ? Buying a Ferrari car or big beautiful Mansion.
Why look at 3 months? What about for the whole year? What if Android took 90% of Q1-Q3?
Awesome work Apple !
I rather pay my money to Apple instead of Samsung or LG or HTC who make good products but provide horrible after sales service.

No wonder your a frustated Fandroid... LoL...
Get a life, work hard and buy iPhone to satisfy ur self...hahahaaha
Apply has to thank two group of brain washed people. The Americans, who are patriotic and buy iProducts. Then the Chinese who are worship Americans and buy iProducts. For the rest of us, we just laugh at those mid range high price freedomless things.
