Slowly and steadily Android is making it to the top by capturing the highest market share worldwide which is much higher then any other platform. But when it comes to revenue generation there has been no competition to iOS. Apple has been consecutively proving itself to be the best Smartphone. But the way its penetrating it feels like slowly its loosing its market to Google's Android. With the latest release of Google, Google Pixel has started giving a indefinite competition to iPhone 7. So, its yet to see where this fight heads.

Note7, 21 Aug 2016The real fun will start when Google will be forced to serve 90%-95% market with their free OS ... moreYes that's when real fun starts I agree, but for different reason. At 95% market share, Android will put inexorable pressure on IOS and firework really begins at Apple HQ! No third coming of Jobs to save Apple's bacon this time around though!!

Note7, 07 Aug 2016Apple business model is selling above average product at a premium with reasonable after-sale ... moreYes it's a good thing that Apple brass is so short sighted not to lose any sleep over Android global domination. Edict from Cupertino: Let Android have free reign over all sub $400 smart phone market, because we don't care about "cheap" smart phones. Well, this maybe news to Apple brass, but top of the line Android flagships like Galaxy S7 is selling for effective price of less than $400 (with Buy one get one deals). Contraction of price in average selling price for ALL phones is inevitable with continued improvement of inexpensive android phones and continued closing gap with flagships in features and capability. Apple may want to keep all it's iphones priced at $500 and above, but if they do that they will be left with #### drum rolls please #### 2.5% of global smart phone market!!! Which is great for all Android fans. We sincerely hope Apple brass will keep iphones priced very high, and higher the better!!
AnonD-1825, 07 Aug 2016"so every other company in the world ganged up with Google to beat up on Apple, and time will ... moreYea Android is in big trouble with 86% global market domination. LOL. It was just few years ago iphone had more marketshare than Android. Back then ifanboys were screaming Android id so doomed, being "inferior" to IOS in every way, and selling "cheap junks". Fast forward few years, and YUP, those raving ifanboys were blind as bat. Why if ifanboys had their way, all the PC makers would have gone out of business because "they are not making any money"
Anonymous, 08 Aug 20162.5% is not bad for a country like India, were they are competing on 100 dollar phones right ?... moreAnd who's fault is it that every other company in the world not named "Apple" is pushing Android platform against Apple? Apple had chance to open up it's platform and partner other companies and completely dominate the global mobile market, but they decided to keep all the marbles to themselves. Now they have to deal with consequence of their greed.
Indian and China market is showing the way to future of global smart phone market... where IOS will be in single digits market share (like mac is in personal computer market). Don't know why, but Apple just loves single digit market share in everything. Android will continue to increase domination over IOS until it goes to 90% and beyond!!

AnonD-237381, 07 Aug 2016I always used Android with root, never used any antivirus and never ever got any virus or malw... moreThat is good and agreed that pure Android is probably more efficient but probably 95% of consumers are not power users and don't know how to root. Hence my view is that for non power users, iOS and W10 probably works out better (not if you think about cost and apps though which is sweetspot for Android)
Thats because they can download MP3s...!!! Elect me and I will change that!
Anonymous, 09 Aug 2016if people cud afford $600 phone then why is it a problem to you? its their money they can buy ... moreWhat could I expect from you ?

Anonymous, 09 Aug 2016they were not hacked. please do homework before you open your mouth. celebrities were tricked ... moreThe images were believed to have been obtained via a breach of Apple's cloud services suite iCloud,but it later turned out that the hackers could have taken advantage of a security issue in the iCloud API which allowed them to make unlimited attempts at guessing victims' passwords...Anything more?..
