Is this your attempt at comedy?
Over 19 millions in its first three months of sales for the S8 is quite an achievement for samsung. Only 32 millions for iphone 7 is pretty disappointing, even though it's only 6 months old at the start of the quarter.

The owner sold it cheap cause the home button was stuck. I quickly checked online at Apple.com that the serial number still had a month of warranty and picked the phone up for $100. Went down to the Apple Store and walked out within an hour with a brand new 5S. No questions asked. Amazing customer service!!! Honestly wouldn't pay anyone $600 or more for a phone and not have this first rate customer service.
Samsung phones are unreliable. One needs to spend / waste a lot of time to tune them up and optimize them in order to run without (or less) lag. Most of Samsung guys reset their phones frequently in order to refresh the OS. One should take the time to constantly kill apps that are running in the background. When busy most people forget to kill the apps so when they need to do something important the phone crashes or takes ages to do the job. In other words they are just a mess.

I was Android user when bought first smartphone and used to operate file manger, other things then I switched to Apple and I forgot file manager or home screen. Sure it was difficult to adjust at start but then I got used to iOS system. No after years I unfortunately switched to Android to try out great hardware that S7 Edge has to offer. But I don't use file manager & stuff cause I forgot those when I was using iPhone before. Now I miss iOS badly.
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2017Oh, now this is really embarrassing, spuel, after the two preceeding stories showing Samsung... moreSamsung ASP 230 dollar etc. iPhone ASP around 600 dollar.
Huawei propably around 200 dollar.
Selling cheap phones is lot easier than selling expensive phones.
Also If huawei pass Apple it just means situation for Samsung is getting worse and worse, not have much effect on Apple sales.

In fact...they are just as well to simply buy a Samsung original, not an icopy. O wait, they already are ? Hence thpis cockamamy trumlped up article.
Ha ha cowardice, apple control says.
..off to moderation to be fielded.
AnonD-334650, 18 Aug 2017OK that is no problem. Just look up Blancco Technology Group new study finds iPhones fail far ... moreSkepticism can lead to understanding in the end. Now I see a lot better where you are coming from. I'm actually surprised someone actually does this. I'm actually interested to see more groups that do this sort of thing now haha.
PS: We can't always assume everything; not everyone shares our worldviews and opinions. It's why we have to explain our stand when asked to.
PPS: I am just a casual visitor, so I am not really any good in differentiating OLED and LCD :p
Maybe its selling well because its smaller than most premium Android
Vegetaholic, 18 Aug 2017That's just tells how many people are clueless in smartphone world :)It does, i wonder how long those Android users can be brainwashed by spec sheet, luckily i think we have seen direction to better and less and less people are actually buying Android flagships. When people are willing to pay more for phone, most of them tends to buy iPhone.
mark, 18 Aug 2017LOL maybe your just hallucinating.. No I read widely. Apples terrible failure rate was well documented earlier this year, Look up Blancco Report IOS devices fail more than Android. Apples refusal to accept responsibility for product problems and failures is the stuff of legend "Your holding it wrong!" comes to mind. Even blaming customers for bricking their own phones after an update to IOS did the job nicely!
Cheap Xiaomi casual, 18 Aug 2017Er, cite some sources, please? If you're right, then that should be any effort for you, no?
... moreOK that is no problem. Just look up Blancco Technology Group new study finds iPhones fail far more often than Android devices. It reveals that 62% of IOS devices experienced a failure of some sort over the last three months compared to just 47% of Android devices.
As for Apple stores look at where they are and how many, Then look at the size of the area Apple products are available. It is obvious that most people do not live within an hour or so of a store. Just read Apple forums and you will see customers are also complaining all the time. Just look at Apples record when things go wrong, they blame the customer ("your holding it wrong"), other products, everything but admit obvious fault.
So there you have your evidence and sources, so my comment has the credibility you said it did not. I would have posted the source before, but as the Blancco is widely reported and it is obvious Apple stores are not within easy reach of most customers and of course Apple attitude towards customers is common knowledge too, I did not think I needed to.
That's just tells how many people are clueless in smartphone world :)
I see iPhone users fighting for apple LOL you people should understand by spending your hard earned cash you got your iPhone not like apple has given it for free.
What i like about iPhone is iOS , it is smooth and more polished than android but in features no one can beat Android like proper file manager,drag and drop,files can be downloaded from anywhere,HEVC support,large media format support,bluetooth can be used with every device and many more and where android lags in UI,not so smooth animations and polished UI. so you see both these OS has pros and cons.
Regarding hardware Apple SOCs are faster but they lacks some hardware related features while qualcomm SOC(High end) they may not be faster but they do supports more features like better decoding supports,fast charging etc.
So you see both devices has some advantages and disadvantages.
