Anyone with the brain should question how the company with only 14% market share made 91% of the profits from that market - the only answers, their products have huge profit margin (nice term to overpriced).
Knowing that I don't understand how people convince themselves to spend $700 for $120 phone... the answer - dumb people + good marketing. Each iphone bought is $580 wasted and about the price of good Samsung phone.
The problem is 80% of the people worldwide are not actually smart, and to understand all above you need to be just bit older than 12-years old, or slightly above average intellect (so within that 20% of smart people). That is why apple marketing works quite well - the only invention apple did - that have identified that it is easy to mislead dumb people into believing their phones are actually good, that is why their are so successful (thought not very fair).

Almo, 03 Mar 2016I can finally upgrade my iPhone 4 without having to get a massive phone.As an avid user of a smartphone for business, I have no games, no social media, and perform minimal web browsing. I need a smart phone not a smart tablet that is also a phone. I have held on to my 5s for yrs because I have no desire to carry a phablet in my suit pocket. While the market may be smaller in comparison to the narcissistic must be on-the-web social media addicted millennial generation, there is a sizable segment that desires a small smart phone. Thank you Apple for finally listening.

Tom, 03 Mar 2016They're better at it than any android handset manufacturer will ever be! OK let's see. The iPhone 6s plus cane out after the note 5, so it should be more efficient, right?
But it has a bigger body, with a smaller screen. Stupid right?
It also has half the pixels in the screen.
And it still only manages to match the note 5 in terms of battery life. What happened to all the efficiency? What happened to 'vertical integration'?
User experience is more subjective so I won't bother talking about that. But I don't think that iOS comes close.
AnonD-442781, 02 Mar 2016Too bad they're not good at either of those things.They're better at it than any android handset manufacturer will ever be!
Not gonna budge or waste a single penny on this..... Though I'm gonna get the 4.x" iPhones to replace my good ol' 4s.

Personally, I think Rose Gold is a gender-neutral color, and so are all other colors. I don't think any OS can look "girly" and I think that less is more. Android can sometimes be a little overwhelming with the myriad of customization options but truthfully, would you use all of them?
all the apple haters...apple ios dont need more ram. in 512 ram its running like a latest samsung mobile..and can u imagine a android phone with 512 of ram..no..never it even wont turn on

Anonymous, 03 Mar 2016safari is a browserBrowser is also an app, if you did not know already. Does it need more than 1GB or not? I know the answer, I want to hear the funny (uninformed) answers from ifanboys.

@ rohithzen, 02 Mar 2016HI "rohithzen"
Are you talking about Apple Iphone??? The most popular smart phone on the pl... more2015 apple had 14% market share of all mobile devices sold, Samsung had 24% Apple is not the most popular phone by far.
With that 14% share Apple took 91% of all profit made of cellphone sales in 2015. Enjoy the most overpriced non innovated phone on the market, and please do more research.
I have nothing against apple users but i have a question. Please tell me how you set your date and time manualy? A: After 40 minutes:)))))). God this phones are retarded as a 1998 device. Hey boys, i advice you something. Instead of defending this trash of a phone, try using some real smartphones in which a task like seting a freaqin date takes 1 second. The only user that can accept this atrocities to his phone (yeah there are more of this special functipns) has never had a smartphone in his hands. THAT'S FOR SURE.
