Credits to apple they were successful in building the hype and popularity of iphone now everyone mindsets that iphone is the best phone even when you ask what phone has the best camera they will answer iphone even though galaxy s6 and g4 has the best camera for now

Maybe the day when there's something worth of buying? Currently there isn't and haven't been in years.
If you don't want android phone your choices are very minimum to get anything like iPhone. So there's your answer.

Funny, a story like this should make people wonder how that is possible...to sell a cheap phone that costs under $200 to make, ship and manufacture and sell it for over $600 should raise eyebrows. Instead, all the people who paid that price for something so cheap are boasting. Goes to show that marketing/glitter > innovation/quality. Android cares a little more for human kind. they make phones that cost $800 if you want premium (and they actually look and feel premium) and then $30 phones to suit those who can't afford expensive handsets...
Nothing wrong with what Apple is doing, however what i find weird is people who are actually boasting with happiness that a company is doing well, despite them not gaining anything out of it (except for maybe cheap looking phones at premium prices)...

Before i got my Steel Apple Watch i had a chance to try out few Android Wear devices and even tizen running Gear.... Each time when I use my current Apple Watch and think about those devices i think of them like toys..,.. Apple Watch is the best Smartwatch and only blind troll will deny it!
That's the way to go! Because if you have no way to compete other than the price - you suck
I saw nothing new this year! no reason to upgrade my nexus 5! but on the other side Iphone 6 and 6s were a HUGE Upgrade! so maybe tis is the reason its like that(at least a part of it)
I mean m9 was nothing new! and still a terrible camera! s6 wasn't bad but its insanely expensive! lg g4 doesn't sound like a good phone but if you must have LG its a good upgrade ! also there were 810 heating issues!
So Apple had 92% and Samsung 15%? What am I missing? Is this possible?

I'm talking about iphone 6 plus not 6 but in 6 plus:
their SoC is actually one of the best! small throttling good perfromance! low resolution
1080p is ok! its 5.5! and + the screen is also good!
the camera is pretty decent!+ good low light performance!
But it costs so much! i mean I don't think these stuff is worth more than 400-500$
Android solutions of making bigger screen, much higher resolution and uglification of stock ui have been failed for years, but they keep doing it.
We need only need AOSP device with max 5" screen, Full HD, high spec internals and high quality build.
They both got Lollipop and its not glitchy at all lol.... Also there is always the rooting way to get the latest software even after 5-6 years :P
That's that they make so much money is because their hardware is 3 years old and buy it in discount but Apple fans pay premium...
That only shows how Apple fans are s*lly.
I bought my iphone 4s back in 2012 and still getting updates, it's glitchy. But tell me about s3 and xperia z lol

You obviously haven't used one or you are a complete Apple fanboy to say something like that. Apple does make great devices though, but remember that this article is about profits which to me only confirms obe hypothesis - that Apple is charging ridiculous amounts for their devices. You are buying the image and the brand. And thats what you Apple consumers are paying for - not for the physical item. And once established, the image and the brand present no real costs for the company. Thats why Apples profitability is so high. All credits to Apple there.
There's a saying: "Nothing lasts for ever" . wonder when will Apple stop ripping off its fanboys! Or Fans to be sensible & switch over to other well priced phones/makes.
The rich countries people buy iPhone. Apart from this mid range countries like India and sri lanka etc can't buy iPhone because its cost is more than Rs60000. We can't spend that much of huge money on iPhone for daily uses. In my opinion even iPhone may have great features but if u consider economic aspects u can't buy it. U can buy a phone which costs less than Rs 25000.
