They are all driven by the welfare motive and not profit motive like apple. They just want to help the customers who cannot afford apple and they care a damn for the profits. You are a genius sir/madam.
Do you know what that shows?
That most of the firms respect their clients and sell their devices close to their actual cost.
Whilst Apple makes super profits by greedy overpricing their devices, selling them many times above their actual cost.
This profit is made at the expense of their customers, i wonder why they are so happy about it...
Some people don't know how to calculate. It's 105% but after you minus the 6% it's down to 99%
I dont think people understand profit is making money off of what you sell if you pay 10 dollars to make something and sell it for 12 dollars thats 2 dollar profit of course Apple has the highest it doesnt sell cheap phones like samsung or any other brand all their phones even old models are expensive lol
How does Canaccord Genuity define mobile device profits? Does it include software? If yes: Where is Google, as they clearly make a mint? If no: How did they separate out iPhone hardware profit from iPhone software profit?

Although companies work for making money, they should think about making a sustainable business model. Of the my opinion, Apple has not respected to its customers and it will be revealed in the near future. In that time, you would see Apple Bankruptcy ;)

farhad, 16 Feb 2016It means iphone price is much higher than its production expense but Why?"It means iphone price is much higher than its production expense but Why?"
That's called business, every company does that, company need to do money, maybe this is somehow unknown concept to you?
It means iphone price is much higher than its production expense but Why?
question is, is apple taking home 90% of the worlds tax money fraudulently.?
Subzz, 15 Feb 2016Bro, I am not a Samsung fan boy.. Neither do I use samsung or apple.. But get the fact clear, ... more" Plus apple share is less than Samsung, yet they make more profit..."
Of course, Apple is only selling high end phones. Samsung ASP is around 250 where Apple is 690. so of course they do lot more profit because they only sell high price models unlike samsung who's most sales coming from low end.
This is not surprising. Apple is a status symbol in many parts of the world and people don't think twice about paying a silly premium for a Chinese made phone of questionable quality
