Linas, 04 Mar 2015This all content is misleading.. why?
Because it takes only 4th quarter of the year. Over ... moreLol! Benchmarks prove otherwise. Naturally it performs faster and better. And thus people buy iPhones for results.
You do not need to be a rocket scientist to know which phones is faster. Youtube already proves its fast.
It prove your dumb to trust in specs (You do not even know whats hardware is running your android).
WHY PAY GOOD MONEY FOR SPECS, and have lousy lagging / disconnecting issues?
And besides, smart people, poor people, dumb people, all kinds of people use all kinds of phones, android / bb / ios. Smartness have nothing to do with their choice.
KIfakfia, 04 Mar 2015Buy the phone with a purpose...
I give you my own experience. At my work i have 4 colleague... moreYou are totally right all 3 of you guys.
Many around us can testify about same experiences among their friends, colleagues, family, neighbors etc..
Having an iphone has become a sort of way of life, like having an Audi or Mercedes now. It's mostly trouble-free, fast and simple no hassle. If all visitors haven't noticed that, they should get out and see real life from themselves.
Apple made a strong brand name. Now whatever new they release is a must-have.
Once, I've met someone who works in an Apple Center. He told me many stories. Among them this one :
when he hands back a product to a customer in a plastic bag with Apple logo on it, most of the times, the customer will ask him a 2nd Apple plastic bag... Just to part with it. That means everything.
You can show off your 12054 unique features out of your best android phone, the only answer you'll get is "this is not an iphone". Just like the ads.
This all content is misleading.. why?
Because it takes only 4th quarter of the year. Over the whole 2014 Samsung is still market leader. And will be single leader in 2015, because hardly anyone will be up for iPhone 6s (aka #bendgate2).
Finally, yes android takes fro now 82,5% of the market and Apple takes some 11%.
Here is the question - why then apple accounts 80% of the market, and android does opposite?
Answer is simple - apple do not use any cutting edge technologies, they just use all old cheap crap component which are widely available from many manufacturers worldwide, which furthermore helps them to bargain for cheaper components - making ultimately very cheap piece of crap with apple logo on it for £100... and then selling it for good with crazy profit margins.
Why people are buying them.. .simply because they are stupid and understand nothing about technologies. And this is no surprise, they have jobs other than phone technician or engineer and therefore they don't need to know much. But his is what is ultimately apple success - wrap shit in nice paper and sell to stupid people.
nothing to see here. It's perfectly normal for apple to beat Samsung in Q4 since they released 2 brand new phones and verything samsung had was the note(which doesn't sell so good) and the S5 which was already 6 months old and the iPhone was a better choice. They'll get the top spot back after S6 is released.
Bloody86, 04 Mar 2015I say that it's true that most of the people who buys iPhone is just for Show of. I know many ... moreYeah, its what matters most, its what they feel, not what you feel, move on already.
I say that it's true that most of the people who buys iPhone is just for Show of. I know many peoples who have iphone just because thay think that they are cool and fashioned if they have popular brand, and all of them are trying to act like they are some fashion person. They buy everything expensive and branded! Why? Because they are Showing of! And all of them use iphone which cost 900$ just for texting and calling. Pure proof that thay give so much money just for brand.
GIANT, 04 Mar 2015Your right...
Well the crab mentality of those people drives them from judging those who buy ... moreBuy the phone with a purpose...
I give you my own experience. At my work i have 4 colleagues, 3 girls and one guy. Who all own Iphone 6. I asked all them what OS you're iphones uses? 3 girls replied like "Duh" Apple OS and the guy laughed at them and said no it uses MAC OS.
Then i asked one of the girls do have SD card in that. She said SD card? for what? I said: for music, movies and picture etc. She replied: "No i only use it for messaging and calling" Then i said to her if your using your $800 iphone for messaging and calling. Why didn't you buy something cheaper. She said noooo i bought an iphone because most people i know use them and when i hang out with them all have iphones and i have a cheap smartphone. lol
This one of their purpose. They don't care how they feel about the phone and their own experience. They care what other people say about them. And i think this is a mental issue.
Beats by Dre are the same, below average overpriced and heavily marketed headphones. Most people use them because they looks on their heads lol.
Anonymous, 04 Mar 2015iPhone is the easiest phone to call / texting :) Fast, easy, quality. Buy a flip phone..... moreSlide phone is best for texting and calling. And smaller than iphone. i recommend ;)
lol i dont buy apple or samsul, nowdays if a new phone out fr those, most people just buy for show off, if for practical use now with $300 u have a lot of good phone out there to choose ...
GIANT, 04 Mar 2015Your right...
Well the crab mentality of those people drives them from judging those who buy ... moreNo. What's wrong and hilarious is people who are foolish enough to deny or think that most people who buy iPhone are not doing it out of Show off or sheep society reason.
The iPhone makes good per phone sales because it was one device against millions. Now two devices against millions.
And anyone who thinks there is any other reason for the increased sales beyond apple doing what all their fans have been waiting for many years for them to do by introducing bigger and HD displays and a phablet.
If anyone thinks sales would have increased like this with another round 4 inch qHD phones you are either a fool, in denial, it both.
And if you don't think they are scamming explain them having 11% global sales compared to Android's 80% global.
Yet apple has 80% global profits compared to Android's shared 11%.
Not to mention their buggy weak pretend updates and continual world lead in app crashes

Buy a flip phone..... moreAlso Andriod and windows are fast, simple and quality.
"Android phone.. you get bothered by rouge apps, bloatware that drains your battery which you can use for call and texting."
Battery? That why most Andriod phone have good battry life and Iphone 6, 5s,4s have poor battery life.
get with fact mate stop being a stup fanboy.
jim, 04 Mar 2015thats true, most people who buy those phones use it just for that, i mean i dont care who uses... moreYour right...
Well the crab mentality of those people drives them from judging those who buy iPhones and thinking buying those products are for show off..
So what its not their money...
And I think its not for show off cause theyre happy of what they have no matter it is expensive or not...
They are just insanely jealous and envy of what others have which not correct...
So people who think that iPhone users buy the phone just for show off ur wrong!
They buy the phone with a purpose...
so this is where our profit sharing bonus came from...
thanks guys because these numbers brings food to our table...

Buy a flip phone... you have trouble texting.
Buy a Android phone.. you get bothered by rouge apps, bloatware that drains your battery which you can use for call and texting.
iPhone is best for calling / texting. But for others, it excels also at webbrowsing / soicalising / gaming / photography / basically anything mobile.
