no they aren,t doing great, it just look like that.
"Xiaomi has been great at many things no doubt, but for it to turn things around in 2016, it will need to do a lot more. The company has generated hardly any profit by selling its content and services, and when you couple this with the slowdown in growth and the slowdown in VC funding, it's not difficult to see why things may get tough for Xiaomi from here on"
Xiaomi doesn't make profit with their business. So if they want to get bigger they need to make more money, a lot more. In short run xiaomi things are working. But in a long run they have to start getting money from somewhere.

Gsmarena report on OPPO Chinese brand JUST Chinese market account 84% of the Android sales in June 2016
So to be clear in June 2016 84% of new phone were Chinese made Android, if you add Samsung LG and all the others increasingly Android is selling well
Ios lost market share but I have never understood Apple
In September 2016 and the release of the iPhone 7 iPhone sales will pick up but I say this never bet against Apple
If you would have told me that the Apple watch dominates the smart watch market I would have laughed in your face but that us what Apple have done
Having used Windows BB 10 and Android I have never had a problem switching, or using two phones with different OS
If and that would be never It would require a computer if one of those phones were an iPhone just because iPhones are only designed to work with iTunes and Apple

Those companies who are in trouble wasn't because of using Google's Android, it's because they made their own bad choices, in hardware, pricing and bad marketing!
There might be many who prefer ios. But i am one who find ios just ugly and lack of many features which android has. Same old OS from the start it has become boring.

Yes everyone gangep up with google and now most of the companies are in trouble because they cant stand out anyway, so the price is only thing to get sales. But companies cant survive by selling cheap phones.
Currently Apple is winning, and i dont think that will change, because of the fact that eveyone else use android. People are always going to buy iPhone because of the ecosystem and iOS. And no-one can't copy iPhone and sell it cheaper which is currently happening in android world and many big players (HTC, sony, LG etc.) are in huge trouble.

Besides that, for apps to get full access to the system I must give them permission to do so on SuperSU.
Windows Phone/Mobile wasn't hacked yet because no one is interested in finding exploits in a system that no one uses.

They used to have cool design concepts. They will not be able to come to the Indian market and play like Chinese Android OEM player. They may be able to sell more iPhones but their brand erosion will impact them long term...This situation of highly favorable numbers for Android is inevitable and Apple will not lose sleep over it. Because, it won't be able to play the cost game with all and sundry brands.
And those who are talking about iPhone Security and blah blah kindly tell me what was iPhone Celebrity hack or famous iCloud hack ? ..iPhone's are that much secure that it can release your private photos anytime..Lol :D

Many apps which needs root to work violates google policy, Hence you won't find them on playstore. Root is an exploit! Deal with it. On a rooted device an app gets full access to the system, which is tougher to get on a non rooted device. Moreover, being a coder for android, u will agree that android is the least secure mobile OS on the market right now.
India is future of global market! Apple is now has 12% of global market, but will shrink to 2.5% in the future as well, due to their greed and short sightedness of not wanting to help poor people!!
Apple also doesn't believe in cooperating with other companies, so every other company in the world ganged up with Google to beat up on Apple, and time will tell. Apple cannot fight everyone and win.

APPLE strategy should be first to bring down cost. It can be achieved by manufacturing iPhone here or let go some of the profit to of set extra cost due to customs.
And, carrier subsidy. India has v poor postpaid customer base , talk to carriers and put iPhone on monthly plans like in US with options for upgrade for future.
Physical stores. Open exclusive stores so that more people see you. Not just online or partners
Indianize iPhone. Regional language support in iOS would go a long way.
And lastly improve service quality. Its been terrible.
