Anonymous, 24 Jun 2011Yeah,but it's also 100 times less better than iPhone4.
I just can't believe how people can't ... moreHmmm,
I assume you really like your girlfriend, don't you? How come that you gave her all the phones you didn't like to keep for yourself? :)
The fact that you jailbroke your iPhone in order to install illegal versions of software doesn't make you look smart either! I mean, common! You had enough money to buy the iPhone, so, you don't have any money left to pay for your software? People worked really hard to develop those navigation apps, you know?
And, just for your information: all of your illegally installed nav applications are also available on Android. :)
Retina display, eh? LOL, another one who falls for that high-resolution crap! What good does that resolution do on your 3.x" screen? Have a look at the SGSII's display, then come back and repeat your statement. (BTW: GSM Arena had a special on that not tooo long ago!)
Anonymous, 24 Jun 2011Yeah,but it's also 100 times less better than iPhone4. I just can't believe how people can't ... moreThere's no thing flawless about the iphone. Bad antenna, fragile construction, babysitting OS, no text reflow, no multitasking, no support for alternative multimedia formats, no Flash, no Java, and requires jailbreaking just to reach the same usability as other phones.
[deleted post]Yeah but you always buy our products, let's say for example Apple's :)
itiswell, 24 Jun 2011In a country like Nigeria where prepaid Mobile services is the option 90% of mobile phone user... moreWell Apple is selling factory unlocked iPhones 4 now don't they,so they can work with any GSM carrier,or pretty soon T-mobile will have it too.
When Samsung SGS came out first i bought it in electronic shop for the same amount of money i could've get iPhone. Nor T-mobile,or AT&t had it at that time,so what's the difference mate ?
TC, 24 Jun 2011In Sweden Galaxy S2 is almost 100 euro less expensive than IPhone4!Yeah,but it's also 100 times less better than iPhone4.
I just can't believe how people can't see the quality of iOS,and still comparing Android.
Android can do lots of things more than iOS,but still it's going to be a joke to me.
I wouldn't trade iPhone's flawless touchscreen,its apps ( by the way which are useful unlike Android's ) for any Android phone out there.
It's media phone,stylish phone,quality phone,business phone,anything you need from a single device.
What more could you ask for.
*Take any Android phone next to iPhone and start browsing net.They will drain its battery 4 hours before iPhone's
* Start charging let's say HTC Sensation 4G,the one my G/F has,and you'll see how long it takes. My iPhone is fully charged in les than an hour,HTC needs more than 3 hours to fully charge.
* By the way what's with Android running background apps for which you have to install task killer to shut them down while not in use. I don't have that issue with my iPhone.
* How do you jailbreak android,and get yourself nice navigation like TomTom which cost $85 but i have it for free,or Navigon which cost $45 but i got it for free on my jailbroken iPhone,while you're stuck with google maps only ?
* Tell me one useful business app from Android that you get it for free ? Yes you get many,but they're all promo,and if you want full version you have to pay,so why people complaining about Apple app store i don't get it. Android market is a joke
* Yes the phone has only 5 MP camera,but it's 10 times better than my G/F's HTC Sensation which has 8 MP
* What's with the user interface ? E-mail client is so complicated with Androids,why the screen gets so messy in a second,and it's hard to whipe it out,what's up with all that plastic,etc,etc?
* Let's not forget Retina display,Android can come up with tons of new,but they never get close to Retina.
* I know one thing which is the most important. When Sonny Experia x10 came out i bought it,and in 3 months gave it to my G/F,when SGS came out i bought it and gave it to my G/F,when HTC Sensation came out i bought it and in 3 days gave it to my G/F ,but i never gave her any of my iPhone. It's a phone you never get bored of it,and you never wanna get rid of it.
To me,it's a perfect phone compared to the others on the market.

bluesky, 24 Jun 2011It simply shows how stupid some people are.It is also due to several restrictions of carriers ... moreWatch out Bluesky, are you saying that with the open-ness in the UK that the iPhone is not as successful?
Wrong, in the UK almost 50% of all contract phoines sold are iPhone's.
I can't understand why people are so hypocrite about Apple. In our country, I'm not saying this is a fact but more on an mere observation, when someone is texting or hanging out in some coffee shops or pretty much doing anything with the use of phones and tablets they would observe if it's a product of Apple and if they saw it is they would somehow say great quality or rich. Same for Blackberry but if you're using Samsung, SE, Nokia and whatnot they would just look at your stuff and would not be in awe since it's a brand they dont have much recognition.
In a country like Nigeria where prepaid Mobile services is the option 90% of mobile phone users tend to flow with and everyone has at least 2 cell phones each, iphone has no place. Again, I agree with previous post that the earth is a large big place.
So stop ringing this research over and over again. I phone is the top selling phone in verizon and At&t. Which other provider in the USA has iphone. None. So, this article is not a research finding. It is just a waste of space on gsmarena.com's page.
The company that spends time on collecting such information has not better work to do. They need to do something on "Effect of Mobile phone health".
in popularity indeed,here in the philippines iphone is very popular,even a 7 year old kid knows it,even in small stores here iphone is very demanding base on my observation here.its talk about phone here.
TC, 24 Jun 2011Did Apple just patent the ability to remotly turn of IPhone cameras to prevent recording movie... morei dont know why you would say iphone is expensive when phones such as galaxy s htc desire hd and all they cost the same even with a inferior OS?
The pie chart shows also "Same" and I would like to know what it means...
carlos, 24 Jun 2011what about England , Germany , Australia , France, Japan, Australia etc ??? hey Gsm arena ,Ear... morego uk site or other local site if u want to know local sale. gsmarena is american site and so it is logical that they know more about us market
Kil43, 24 Jun 2011This is just a plain stupid thread. If you want an iPhone you have the choice of a few models... morewell what your saying make sense but the point is that one manufacturer is able to compete against all the other manufacturers.
wether its because it only has a limited range is irrelevant unless you want to compare iphone angainst say the samsung galaxy s which came out rouhly same time. i think if you were to compare indevidual models i think the outcome would be interesting
Anonymous, 24 Jun 2011No. the patented a technology that will allow there camera software to identify a particular i... moreThis type of particular infrared beam could be used by brutal regims against demomstrators so that videos of police-brutality do not end up on youtube, they just need to place this type of particular infrared beam in any area where they want to shut down the camera of IPhone-users!
Apple should not concern themself at all about what users write in their messages, even if it is something "sexual"!
what about England , Germany , Australia , France, Japan, Australia etc ??? hey Gsm arena ,Earth is a big place
TC, 24 Jun 2011Did Apple just patent the ability to remotly turn of IPhone cameras to prevent recording movie... moreNo. the patented a technology that will allow there camera software to identify a particular infrared beam (that could say - be shone on a crowd at a concert) and disable the function to take photos/record video. They don't know where you are etc, in simple terms the camera shuts down when it detects this special light.
This is just a plain stupid thread. If you want an iPhone you have the choice of a few models so sales across the selection would be higher on the select few than say android which has loads of models on offer - simple maths. Anyone who thinks this represents anything major just needs to look at the data analytically...
Lol fan boys need to check their facts. Apple fan boys are almost as arrogant as the old school symbian fan boys and with the same amount of facts lmfao.
