Your comment claiming it is unanimously agreed that Android is far ahead, if applied against functionality is far from correct, in fact I think you will find it unanimously disputed.
The 'walled garden' term comes from Apple's restriction to access of the IOS ecosystem outside of their imposed rules, this comes with as many benefits as it does draw backs. By contrast Androids open nature also introduces both benefits and weaknesses, the increased vulnerability to malware is an example one such weakness.
However that term has little bearing on the functionality on offer within IOS, which has expanded greatly in the last 3 versions.
it doesn't mean anything ...... there are some people who just want a phone and dont know anhything about android or ios. they just go to store and buy what ever they like. someone should ask tim cook how many left iphone last year .. hehehe
Well now check how of those iPhones are Jailbreak or hacked and will be the Half of all the iPhone worldwide users because they want an Android Experience in an iPhone for appearances with their hipster friends
Ale, 28 Oct 2015Yeah you read the line I posted about them both having benefits over each other right??? we... moreWhat features and functionality exactly? I thought it was unanimously agreed that android is far ahead in that regard. That's where the whole 'prison' or 'walled garden' talk comes from, something no one denies.
The comments from appleites not admitting China is purely responsible for any good interim luck, after admitting core buyers are keeping their current phones big time, makes android users even more happy.
Honest Realist, 28 Oct 2015I dont care who makes he's phone, as long as it runs Android it's like that fly on the wall, A... moreLOL am I seriously more clueless than the guy who's always commenting on android pages yet has never used and claims to not be interested in them? Who knew.
LOL the comments/excuses from Android users hating on Apple make me an even happier iPhone user!! Luv my Jailbroken IP6s!!
O, T Crook said it, O, right then,we can all take that as gospel then can't we. Not.
Excuse me I'm just nipping round to examine all their internal private files and figures ,so a private unrelated unsponsered verification can be made, what, no one is allowed to do that.
Well, we'll just have to take apples word for it then, that this is a clever Pr gig then, won't we ?
P, 28 Oct 2015But isn't that normal? Where else would they come from? iphones are still terrible tho...ohh because it doesn't has 72364782364 cores and 982136498273 RAM ?
P, 28 Oct 2015But isn't that normal? Where else would they come from? iphones are still terrible tho...ohh iphones is still terrible ? what about note5 , Z5 ? bet you think these phones are good , am I right ? guess what...6s beat them :P
I would like to know where they get there stats from? For instance has even one person on this site ever been asked if they have switched phones or which phone/phones they currently use?
But isn't that normal? Where else would they come from? iphones are still terrible tho...

Muthu, 28 Oct 2015Oh Really? Like itunes is not required anymore to transfer files from PC to phone, file explor... moreYeah you read the line I posted about them both having benefits over each other right???
well I have never rated itunes as a piece of software, in fact i think it's a menace to deal with.
that said I stand by my previous post, IOS has a lot more to offer in terms of features and functionality than many people know and many critics are willing to admit.
it's continued reliance on iTunes though.......not one them.
Ale, 28 Oct 2015To each their own is right, and both have benefits over the other. However the perception o... moreOh Really? Like itunes is not required anymore to transfer files from PC to phone, file explorer available in IOS like android etc?
Reason was obvious.
Most of the buyer are from HTC, Sony and phone of Snapdragon 810.
SHitty 810 really make a lot of phone failure in term of performance and usability especially battery performance =(.
Iphone year by year increasing the luxury price i doubt who will afford in the future. It soon will reach the price where mobile phone invented.
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2015check a iphone 4s with 9 IOS 9.1 and then tell if apple Lag YES OR NOT dude iphone 4s is 4 years old phone ( sep, 2011 ) so what you are expecting ? but still 4s got update to ios 9 not like with android . My brother still is waiting for 5.0 in note 3 ( 2 years old phone )
Typical tim cook.... hype the positive news, downplay the negative news.
How many apple watches did apple sell last quarter?? They will NEVER tell. But Cook is suddenly offering unsolicited information.
Tim cook should also have gone specific to give the breakdown of android phone brands which make up the android switchers e.g. how many of those previously using samsung flagships switched to iphone over the last quarter?
With android being the worlds dominant OS, no one expects that iphone buyers are switching from blackberry.
And buying an iphone does not mean iv thrown my android away bcos the limited iphone customization options mean that i still cannot have a complete smartphone experience if i own only an iphone.
