But it shouldn't be the case that, when we say industry level profit, it includes the profit with 'X' , loss with 'Y' and gives only the net ?
Anonymous, 13 Jul 201515% of that 8%. Hahahaa92% + 15% = 107% - 7% (Other companies loses) = 100%
"Samsung came behind Apple with 15% of all the industry profits during the quarter. The two tech giants account for more than 100% if all profits, because most of their competitors have lost money or simply broken even during the period."
I seriously doubt you have a Z2,I have a Z3 compact, my cousin owns a Z2 and the only advantage on mine is the higher iso which the iPhone can only dream to have in 20 years.
iPhone appeals to human need of saying they bought something that was expecting site regardless if it's worth it or not. Based on profits and sales doesn't mean they are the best otherwise McDonald's would have the best food in the world, it's just more popular among people who don't have knowledge on the subject, same with iPhones.
Harmonica, 13 Jul 2015But who will pay for software and maintenance cost ? Samsung is a different story , they need... moresamsung is the most big spender company for R&D and apple is not even in the top 5 so what you said is invalid
Wut, 13 Jul 2015The look and feel of the s5 was the chosen preference of samsung. For the same price, get a so... moreIMO the Sony xperia with its glass and metal build can outclass most phones when it comes to beauty, you have to see it to understand. And yes i prefer the build of the sony z2 to the iphone any day of the week, thats just my opinion though.
Sanjay Chandra, 13 Jul 2015iPhone and Galaxy flagships are serious business phones besides blackberry. Xperia flagship... moreClearly you have either never seen an xperia in real life or you don't know what a toy is or both. Even pocket now says that the xperia is the kind of classy phone a business man prefers while the galaxy s5 will be prefered by the active person. You have to see it io talk about it. XPERIA = GREATNESS
I like the Apple products I have but what a bunch of American Misinformation and Lies this is.
Wut, 13 Jul 2015The look and feel of the s5 was the chosen preference of samsung. For the same price, get a so... moreAnd through ur statement that iPhone looks like a child's toy? Well that is more than an EXAGERATED CLAIM... hahahha lelzzzz

Xperia flagships are water resistant toys.
I dont understand this statement. Apple owns 92% of the industry profit, which means that only 8% left out. Then how come Samsung has 15% ?
This new gsm arena looks like shit on mobile version. 1970 shit. Change that.
I have used all 3 Mobile OS available in the market and can say that Android phones want superior hardware to run smoothly where as iOS and Windows Phone works smoothly on lesser hardware. About Apple's profit they are producing hardware at roughly $150 and the remaining amount they are charging for their intellectual property i.e. iOS and first party software. There is no formula that can accurately determine cost of any intellectual property.
SauceBoss, 13 Jul 2015Then why does the Galaxy s5 look like it is a child's toy when compared to the iPhone? You can... moreThe look and feel of the s5 was the chosen preference of samsung. For the same price, get a sony z2 next to the iphone and suddenly the iphone looks like a child's toy.
(btw stating that the s5 looks like a child's toy is a way exaggerated claim)
Cool, iOS deserves it. Even iOS 9 beta is more stable than android 5.0 . People who thinks android phone got more RAMS & more cores can't have little brain to think android is so poor in memory management that it requires desktop class hardware to run a mobile OS. Although I am using xperia z2, can't love it. 3GB ram but it laaaags. In other hand ipad mini 2 with beta 3 ios 9 is more stable & smooth & user friendly than android 5 (is lollipop Alpha version of android ?)
Sunil Suni, 13 Jul 2015Over priced mobile. They are cheating everyoneIf a cerain company will put a price to their product, whether it is overpriced for you or not, you cannot do anything cause that is marketing. If you cannot afford that is not a problem of the company. If you want their product whether is pricy or not you can have it, but if not its your choice..
