Well we know whose fault it is, it's the android fans who aren't prepared to pay the going rate, I for one will always pay good wack for a Sony phone, because they are premium devices, unfortunately most android buyers will buy cheap china stuff and still moan, profits for android manufacturers isn't going to go up until people stop being stingy with their money, Apple will charge silly money in the knowledge that they will still sell without affecting sales, hence their profits keep on increasing. It's about time android buyers woke up and started saving big, but I don't think it will happen.
Tcool, 27 Feb 2015It's the name they pay for, nothing more.how do you know, tcool news? shut up and go back to samsung. stop trolling. those millions certainly arent paying for viruses

Apple takes $150 to build a low/mid range phone like the iphone 6. And sell it for $1000 that's around $850 per phone profit.
Other phones makers like Xiaomi for example, builds a smartphone (Mi4) for $150 and sell it for $400 that's around $250 per phone profit.
Its a no brainier that apple makes more profit. But i don't really care. Cause i'm not that stupid to buy a phone with crappy battery life: http://prntscr.com/6ae5me - limited OS, and low res screen for $1000. (at least that's how much it cost where i live)

Anonymous, 27 Feb 2015Silly apple sheeple read apple 88% Boom! Android got served lollllll Typical apple sheeple..... moreu r only considering the manufacturing cost, u dont care about the os, it cost a lot to develop an os, apple isnt ad based. there's also advertising, research, and all other factors. do you see companies like motorola advertise their phones?
This confirms the report of low profit of samsung, almost closing down of sony mobile, HTC in the red, if i remember it correctly LG made a bit of profit

Xiaomi is the best example of that. Worth billions but making millions.
You might say that Xiaomi are doing the right thing, but they are not for their shareholders. In the longterm, if they don't become more profitable, they'll be in big trouble.
Thats because iPhones are released in the last quarter of every year but overall I guarantee you Android has the largest market share.

Such a simplistic moronic reply worthy of a high school argument that had nothing to do with anything.. some sheeple..
Nice try hmmm haha
Pfff! Well of course. It takes apple $150 to build a single iphone 6 and sell to mindless people for $1000.

Apple make money off selling products to their customers.
Thus Apple's earnings are clear as day. Google's is dark and shady. Ads, and more ads, selling customer's details to the highest bidder, and all those things.
So where is the android phone makers? Nothing, selling cheap hardware only, so they are not even in the picture.
Apple does what it does best...and that is, turn a profit. No reason to hate on them for that. It's the goal of EVERY company. They just happen to have it down to a science.
Can some of you truly be this obtuse? Apple consumers are by and large satisfied with Apple and what they deliver.
If dropping $700 seems like a ridiculous amount of money, maybe you should get better jobs. Hmmm??
