Anonymous, 07 Aug 2016Lol, a rooted device is considered as Heaven for malwares/viruses. Your device might actually ... moreDo you even know what is a malware. Android does get malware by getting apps by side loading apps and if you there is no place where you cannot find malwares. Get a Mac you will know
Remember a time when everyone used to say that Android gives updates too fast and people want slow updates as a point apple is now also doing faster updates and it's bringing some great features that are already on Android and some features on their own if you know about both the Android and iOS platforms you will see that they are almost the same it's just that one is open and one is closed. Apple makes gorgeous Mac's because it's different and apple forgot that I don't mind latest features but apple should bring something different to the table. If Apple is expecting Indians to buy a high price phone they should be different what's the point of buying an iPhone if all features available at a very cheap price. I know they differ but there is know strong reason to get iPhone.

I dont work for government, i dont store my credit card information, im not a terorist. Im just a regular user who love all technical things.
So.. i dont care.
The Indians are smarter than the Chinese. While the Chinese are buying expensive iPhones which are designed for high school students, to pop up their "fashion or taste" status, the Indians are picking up all levels of Android phones for the sake of personality, capability and value for money. Well done India.
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2016The average selling price for a smartphone in India is $200. What data are you using to showi... moreDoesn't matter where I get my data from but if you must know I got it from here in GSMARENA cause I read I don't just type and reply.
Also I never said anything about average, all I'm saying is that phones around the $300-$900 (which I consider expensive) are being sold in bucket loads in India. That's why premium Chinese phones always run out of inventory quickly and that's why every OEM is targeting India cause its second largest and yes Indians have money to spend.
Also my anonymous friend if you gonna disagree with what I'm saying, if you have more accurate data next time please do share a link or else you will sound just another jack who is trying to enforce his opinion.
I do trust you will have a splendid day.
The Apple owners are so Unhappy after the 6th version many still defend it. Apple is the grandmother of phones, while Samsung is the hot chick.
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2016Lol, a rooted device is considered as Heaven for malwares/viruses. Your device might actually ... moreSo what....? I don't care if my phone is infected as long as it's works fine and it is fine.. i don't store my credit card or any other card or my million dollars in my phone. I don't store my nude pics or videos in my phone. So I don't have any problems too. I use my phone how I want it.. Android is more secure than before and I am great ful to google and samsung for that after god .
smartass, 07 Aug 2016Less sales for apple
1) ridiculous amounts of taxes in india, the price gap is literally ver... moreyou forgot below par device.
ppl want to pay premium price for an actual premium phone not a stone age device like iphone
Guys In my point of view apple has a clear advantage in built department.Samsung phones are stunning in looks but they are not well built. IOS have lots of apps which you hv to buy. Investing 60 k on a phone then invest 5k again for apps really hurts the pocket. Indian tax structure is a genuine issue but some technique should be implemented by apple to lower the Iphone cost in India. After implementation of GST price will automatically comes down. Then the percentage of iphone users will increase for sure.
glad to hear that pretending ios is not accepted in india. that pricey ipotato
aniket, 07 Aug 2016I am an Indian and lemme clear confusion about 97% share of android in indian market. To under... moreI am an Indian too and you shared very good points. Apple will have to bring out different strategies to approx Indians. We don't believe in Loyalty and either we will invest a lot of money on apps. There was a time then Nokia was famous that everyone was happy to buy that, had various price range and service was not expensive. Now, it's Samsung. My friends and relatives have trust in Samsung (of course few of them love to go for Moto/Asus/Xiaomi,etc but these people see the price, service, and specs). This trust is temporarily like we had for Nokia. If some day, lots of people start buying an iPhone and Apple gives different price categories then definitely it will become the new Nokia.

Your device might actually ... morerooted devices just gives some more freedom. that's all. if you know how to use your phone then it is not a issue instead it is a super power. If you don't download pirated stuff or videos like that you will not get infected. and FYI : latest Android is very secure and only those who know what they are doing can root it. just like someone else mentioned only secure part in iOS is it's lock. Google fixes Android bugs within 30 days but iOS bugs remains there. even a simple SMS could be used to hack iPhone if you opened the message. the good part of iOS is that if you are dead or your phone is stolen then nobody can unlock your locked iPhone. but if you are still using your device you are vulnerable. refer to hacker news website for some exploits. apple is very shy in fixing security issues
Yaah, thats no brainer right? Apple being still 30k + for latest or near latest models and Windows phones being dumpned by Microsoft themselves, onenhas no choice other than Android. Besides offlate they are coming bit ship shape on securoty and performance too.
Wjat they also need to do is ship options of smaller devices of 4or 4.3 inches too, esp in Asia with medium body structure quite few ppl will prefer it if not majority.

To under... moretrue ...and there is also this trend of recycling your phone every 1-2 years..it makes no sense at all to buy a 50k(around 900$)rupees on a mobile only to resell it next year at about 15k..(yep thats the most you'll get..unless you olx it)...plus unlike most of the readers of gsma(some of whom have trashed me for this), the common man, let him be of any country, will use basic stuff...you can't teach your grandpa to upload your contacts to gmail then sync it to you iphone.. and with the added locked file tree in windows explorers, its natural that people go for android....
it also helps that for the basic needs, an android cellphone or a tab cost an average of 10-15k
