I ain't gonna pick none of them, that's for sure. Yeah their sales are going up, but only becuase huaway is going down.
First of all the notch is stupid, second of all, Apple stopped inovating.
That the iPhone XR ist the best seller, indicates that people opt for the most affordable option that the company sells as a flagship.
It seems that people don't really need the best of apple. They care about the status symbol and they want to have a apple product for the sake of just having it.
Of course the XS and offers more but the price is untouchable.
With $1,200 you can buy an amazing new bed that will last for years, or an extremely advanced fridge, or the newest washing machine the humanity can offer and so on and so forth.
Not that with the purchase of the XR you don't deprive yourself from other luxuries, but as I said, it's the cheapest option if someone has to have an Iphone. This is the trend and apple has to realize that.

Samsung got used to sell around 80 million phones every q. Nowdays the number is around 70 million. Sure they just released S10 which had nice impact for very short time, but data is already telling that S10 is selling badly.

It's actually completely opposite, qual... morePeople keep them longer and longer ONLY because of 5 year ios update, don't fool yourself.
That is the critical point by Android phones and that's why many people are angry at Android OEMs.
Yeah, foldable iPad Pros and iPhone 6 is an example of high quality Apple devices.
16% share in China? something must be wrong here. iphone is less than 5% overall in China. Maybe 16% in the urban areas?

Apple sales has dropped around 20% year over year since 2017. That is a free fall. 10% is a big problem for any business. The consumer base has shrunk by almost 50 million people in two years.
You can put as much semantics lipstick on it as you like, but the only thing saving Apple's profits for the moment is price hikes and margin squeezes (for instance, by once again accepting Foxconn using slave labour to make phones even cheaper to build). That will only work so far until there are no more margins to squeeze.

Hmm, 10 Sep 2019Android you can keep it. Now get over yourself we buy what we want not what you think we should. Which is exactly why iPhone sales is in a free fall. We buy what we want, hence we buy those better Samsung phones.
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2019Oh well, if Android keeps this up they're gonna go down the same path as Apple (for better or worse)They will and won't at the same time. As long as budget and independent manufacturers exist, Android won't go the apple way. Another reason is AOSP. You can run Android sans Google so it's not like they have hold over Android. They know it full well. That's why they haven't kept any os royalties even with nearly 90 percent of all phone sales.
