Making exorbitant profits to make the products exorbitant much better would be nice. Instead Apple is just passing the profits on to the share holders who just use it on hamburgers and poppycock.
I really don't know why mobile sites bringing these not interesting articles and still only for ape??!?! What they trying to achieve with this?
Nobody cares.. Rather talk how android is perfect and doing great otherwise you can shake hands with PA, GA!
Shocking. The most over priced phone brings in the most profit. Utterly shocking
Apple is the only company I know of that can make huge profits fleecing their customers and the customers love them for it. Well done, Apple.
Subzz, 15 Feb 2016Bro, I am not a Samsung fan boy.. Neither do I use samsung or apple.. But get the fact clear, ... moreApple fans are people that need to pay to feel that they are/have something "premium". The title of the article is the best proof for this.
Who can accept to buy something that generate more then 90% profit and be happy with this?
sorry but I can not accept this.

Here is a comment regarding someone who chooses to use an Apple product. This is what they wrote :
"people still buying this very expensive stolen crapple product with stolen features and stolen applications. lol people stupid"
Would you define that as not complete disregard and disrespect? That is the barrage of comments that Apple users are met with. Do you think it's valid? What is it exactly that I need to "chill" about?
I have gone through a lot of posts and I see that a lot of people are making sense while others are just making noises. I am using a blackberry (due to security) and I plan to get the next apple phone. Now I believe people have reasons for choosing the devices they want, I believe some people are going for the OS, not the name. For example, I get a Samsung phone around $500 and I know that next year I will have to go for another Samsung device due to system OS update and stuffs. On the other hand I get an iphone for $1000 and I get system update up to 4 times before I get sick of the phone. I would rather go for the iphone and know that what I will need from apple for the next 2 years is system update (which is free). On the other hand, I personally find the iphone to be less frustrating than android. I got the galaxy note 4 and noticed that if I am running like 5 apps at same time and I allow the screen to time out, then I try to get back to where I stopped it never responds like the apple iphone.

It's quite the opposite. As an Apple user I'm met with nothing but disdain by strangers who can't wrap their head around the fact that some people just don't care about the money lol. It's not that difficult to understand that if you make the a lot of money and can afford to buy whatever you like, you should be able to do with it as you please without being scrutinized?
Is that hate, or is it the other way around in all honesty?
harlekkin, 15 Feb 2016Apple's pricing stays consistent. They don't heavily discount their phones, never ever.
Sams... moreBro, I am not a Samsung fan boy.. Neither do I use samsung or apple.. But get the fact clear, Samsung applies a diff strategy.. Whereas I am talking bout Apple's inflamation in price for stuffs... Aftrall, 720p IPS is cheaper than 2k sAmoled.. Isn't it? Samsung phones are really highly priced in the beginning, but not as much inflamated, afterall competition is huge in android, hnce samsung stuffs more things for similar money to apple..
I again clarify here. I am talkingabout inflamated apple pricing.. The usb type c adaptors for macbook costs a bomb.. The phones costs bomb, even after a year f release.. So they make a huge profit..
P.S. --> I dont undrstand why these i-fans dont get facts straight.. The cheaper they sell, the better is it to the consumer.. Plus apple share is less than Samsung, yet they make more profit... Ultimately proves huge inflamation in price for everthing... Plus they also make huge profit from apps, even those apps which are free over android..

and yes im ios and android user and guess what after few years ios updates
it RUN SLOWER than ever safari is tearing site pages and camera is on fps shooting ...
Anonymous, 15 Feb 2016$800 is quite a lot for a phone. Look at what else you can buy for the same money. :-pWhat you have said is solely an opinion though. Some people might think it's crazy to spend $10,000 on a Rolex, because it's just a watch and there are many watches that tell time perfectly for $40.00.
Samsung's huge discounts on its flagships didnt help its cause. Apple's 100% focus on the premium segment definitely is paying off for them.
Typhoon, 15 Feb 2016Reading the comments here its not hard to understand why Apple users don't respect Android or ... moreExactly. I use an HTC One M8 for work and iphone 6 for personal use. Each platform has its own advantage and disadvantages.
However, as an Apple user, I get tired of having to continually defend why I am using an iPhone. It's jailbroken, and the HTC is rooted so I have extensive amounts of experience and freedom work each OS.
It seriously makes some people so insane with jealously that it gets borderline fanatical. At least you could care less... That's how it should be.
Use what you like. It's your money.

It's a lot less if hundreds of millions of companies are all making low end handsets. Android OEM is something 1200 OEMs. That cannot be a productive use of people's time.
That is incredible and doesn't bode well at the sametime.
It does make me question why OEMs are continuing to produce handsets for Android for no money. If my business was losing that kind of money over many years I would do something else. How can it be productive to have so many companies all offering tat. Android is a sinking ship if you're an OEM. A bit like the OEM's who made PC/Laptops. There is no room to innovate and no wonder hardly any of them invest in any after-sales support with margins so thin except for Samsung. The retort you always get back is - the price the price.
