That is a massive fall of 31% made much worse by the fact the market in China grew by 15%. By anybody's standards that is not dominating the market, but a major downturn.
Apple is doing well because Android phones are a lot,whiles iOS is one so you need to make note on that
magik, 09 Nov 2016Any os is better than ios even Symbian 40Symbian 40 does not exist;). That is called s40 and s40 was a java normal mobile phone system. Symbian series 60 and about are a totally something else. And yes, Symbian is better then ios, even then Android or wp, but i don't expect somebody that thinks, using an s40 java phone is like using a smartphone;), to understand what i am talking about!

While Apple sure makes great profits, it did that when it was touting taking Chana by storm and it being the most important market to ensure Apples mobile growth. This seems to be forgotten now that Apple if failing (or even failed) in this key area by their own admission. India has been the latest attempt by Apple but similar to China it is failing there too.
Remember too, this and the next few months will always be good ones for Apple as they benefit from sales from new models, but the trend of iPhone sales is still down. Trying to hide behind this fact by bringing up profits is not meaningful here, it is just a diversion.

So as I can read, and there is another article just on China 84% Android
So I personally have seen a person go from S6 Edge to iPhone6S and NOT being close to the person I couldn't ask him, but having a memory card to not then he would have to figure out the memory he wanted in the iphone6S
I do know iTunes makes it impossible to actually have purchased music on a non iPhone so moving from iOs to Android Apple make it difficult to move
I think some are buying the phone as a status symbol but iOs is done in India also http://www.gsmarena.com/strategy_analytics_android_dominates_indian_smartphone_market_with_97_share-news-19811.php
Apple iPhones are not top tier specs so I'm India and China 12Mp cameras maybe sold on their 2014/2015 Android phones so faced with Android or an IPhone which cost multiple in these regions chose Android it is specifications led not status.
The point I am making is I have used 3 Operating System in upgrades and the switch seamless, it is only when you try to leave iOs (which I have NEVER done) that you encounter problems,
If you accept iOs and are happy it is a great experience is you stay with iOs, so for those I understand they like iOs like some like Android, so they will be paying a similar tariff to the iPhone.
People are lazy and simply won't research the phone, so are at the mercy of the salesperson recommendation
Add to that, despite that the phones are being advertised by friends who may own a flagship phone already
I know it was insignificant and you probably didn't realise it, but the Iphone 7 was released.

I remembered not too long ago ios was 47% compare to 50% for Android in US. Actually their market share is shrinking especially China.
I like Apple and android (Samsung) both have positive and positive+ points .. FOR ME.. Best phone is a subjective matter after all

If I could have put another OS on it I think I would have kept it.
I can't believe with MS pretty much stopping production of all windows phones, selling all assets to FHD and they still haven't dropped into the "others" category.
Samsung is losing everywhere with their galaxy flops, huawei and Apple winning big time.
Interesting to see if Samsung can ever recover from this, propably not.
Eske Rahn, 09 Nov 2016If people can be persuaded to select Trump, no wonder they can also be persuaded to use IosHahahaha!! Worst. Comment. Ever!!!! Typical Fandroid response to not excepting something positive about Apple!
