But a phone is more than just hardware, and iOS and Apple's ecosystem represent that complete product value (and I'm not just talking iTunes). An experience like that does not yet exist in the Android and Windows space, although certain elements of it do.
K Sen, 26 Apr 2016bravo mate.... only you can justify "exploiting" so well :P. And again, pay attention to what ... moreOh come one, get off the bandwagon of blaming everything on Apple. Like I said, ever well established brand, luxury or not, is doing so as it is a marketing PRINCIPLE, not anything new at all.
BMW has existed way before Apple, and guess what, they've been "exploiting" their brand just like most other car manufacturers since day 1.
Vj14, 26 Apr 2016iOS XDiOS? Funny. You mean the only OS of 2015 and 2016 that had bugs so bad that they bricked the phones and required rebooting the phone after clicking on a link?
Out of Android, Blackberry, Windows 10 and iOS, the worst in terms of quality is iOS.
"All phone OS' have bugs." True. With iOS, It's not just having bugs. It is the number and severity of bugs that Apple has with each new major release that has been a problem since iOS 5.
No thank you.
Carol, 26 Apr 2016I don't remember a conpany, besides samsung copying Apple! Really don't. Please tell me, one? ... moreYes to most of your questions.
Here is one example
The information is out there.
Anonymous, 26 Apr 2016The whole world copy Apple , Apple doesn't copy anyone , Apple 1st introduce fingerprint senso... moreSpoken like a true Apple iphoney fanboy.
Apple wasn't the 1st to put a fingerprint sensor on a phone just as it wasn't the first to introduce a touchscreen phone.

aussiehk, 26 Apr 2016Hmmm, I guess brand value isn't something that a company can dictate. It really is the consume... moreAll that is true.
I will add that there is a difference between brand value and product value. Up through about the iphone 4, the iphone had product value. In that I mean that it was a product that had many things which were not available in the market and paying a premium for an iphone made sense.
In my opinion the iphone no longer represents product value. There are many other options out there with more features, similar or better performance and at a lower price.
Unless someone must have the Apple logo or IOS on their phone they can save a considerable amount of money by purchasing another brand.
Anonymous, 26 Apr 2016But as a tech fanatic, you then must admit that Android is the inferior OS out of the Big Thre... moreI would, if it was true... but its not. truth be told, my opinion is that iOS and android focuses on different things...
iOS is more robust (since its not an open source), simpler and way more consistent. The downside to that is lesser features and customization("isheep" and "sheepable" terms came up i think bcoz without customization, they all look almost the same). There is a certain limitation of what can be done here. one good example from my recent tackles, i couldn't find an app in iOS to stop my 5 yr old nephew from keeping his ipad too close to his eyes and using it (i maybe wrong, in that case kindly let me know name of such an app :)).
Android, is more of a feature rich, intensely customizable OS. Downside to that is, there is an added level of complexity and it takes a certain level of effort to setup and maintain.
By windows, i assume u mean windowsphone, which sadly is behind both as its not robust yet and lacking in features much more then iOS as of now.
So i'd say its a tie between iOS and android (comparing them both is ludicrous to being with in my opinion), followed my windowsphone.
Now i'ld like to see you explain how you came up with the order, iOS, windowsphone, android :D
Anonymous, 26 Apr 2016But as a tech fanatic, you then must admit that Android is the inferior OS out of the Big Thre... moreWindows mobile is a joke OS. I call windows phones "feature phones" because they're years behind the other two in features.
I'm tempted to call the other two to be equal, but iOS slightly loses out in its insistence of form over functionality. Yes it's smoother due to its foreground stressing nature, but it's not necessarily faster, that's very visible when you try to do many things at once. Also iOS has more "good" apps, but at the same time it also lacks functionality that is there in android, like greater levels of customization, chat heads support, etc...
Although i do not like the special way these phones produced by Apple, acknowledge that the company has managed over time to impose trend among phone manufacturers.
In the past two years, Apple has lost touch with reality, and remained far behind other manufacturers. Is this the swan song of Apple? Frankly, i would not want.
They are able multe..surprize since. Waiting for their..... return in games place.
Anonymous, 26 Apr 2016But as a tech fanatic, you then must admit that Android is the inferior OS out of the Big Thre... moreyes, android is the most inferior os among those three while the world is dominated by android..
ios, android, windows.. they were nothing compared symbian os, the-most-bestest-super-duper-os in the world.. heil symbian!!
here's the funny fact, when there's an article about ifhone, all the androidz user bashing it, when there's an article about a specific phone like sammy, those isheep bashing as well as other androidz user who uses non-sammy.. and what's worse is almost everyone acts as die-hard fans claiming their phone is the best but denied that they were fans..
K Sen, 26 Apr 2016lol, whats wrong with you mate? iOS and android both r best?, i mean u're just rephrasing what... moreBut as a tech fanatic, you then must admit that Android is the inferior OS out of the Big Three, overall. (iOS, Windows, Android)
Vj14, 26 Apr 2016See here's the thing, iOS and Android both are best, it all comes down to personal preferences... morelol, whats wrong with you mate? iOS and android both r best?, i mean u're just rephrasing what i said... have some "releavence" in your comments. U pointed out apple beats wireless headphones as one of the reason to upgrade, so i responded for it (its relevant, you have bluetooth speakers is not).
Check out the comments from apple fanboys on android pages, there will fair amount of trash talks atleast as much as any apple page, if not more... and i go against fanboys all together. When you start using words like, "as*droid", you just loose your credibility like any fanboy does....
Not once have i stated that android is the best or iOS is the best or iphone sucks anything subjective in any of my posts. Iam a tech fanatic and a fanboy hater, nothing more, nothing less :)
