There is no denying that the iphone is good. In fact it is as good as it gets!!
Live with it! People don't like products that depreciate! And Apple products always maintain their value.
Nokia products were once like that. Unfortunately not anymore... I would never walk in a business meeting holding a modern Nokia! Unless it were a meeting with the mafia...
Crap survey! Total Bullshit!
There are two kind of lies:
Either you speak lie outright
Or use Statistics
Apple iPhone 4S is 3 times the cost of Nokia N8. Yes, its a better device overall, but three times, are you kidding me??
N8: 17,000 INR,
iPhone 4S: 54,000 INR (for 16 GB version, India),
So, if anyone wants to know where your iPhone 4S money is going, look at that chart posted in the article. There your money goes!
I've never seen such a shameless company which is misusing the love of its customers to charge any damn price and cheat them. No offence to fans though.
Anonymous, 07 May 2012I love how everyone blames Apple for using cheap labour, but has anyone ever questioned samsun... moreApple is 100 %China made unlike Samsung who had local manufacturer and some is China made, labor in South Korea is not a cheap as China
I love how everyone blames Apple for using cheap labour, but has anyone ever questioned samsung/HTC/RIM/Nokia who probably pay their workers less than Apple do, and treat them even worse..
pucities, 06 May 2012htc is not even 1%. They're talking about "profits", not the total sales. This means... morenope actualy it just shows how good htc manages its bussiness.lets have a good example: nokia is 3rd largest mobile company in terms of revenues but they never expected a drastic drop in feature phone sales they produce more than the demand(a loss), they do R&d (you will pay royaties to researchers and labor cost) that cost millions but do not produce good revenue nokia N9 and lastly to much man power for shrinking demand fo phones.
Apple makes the most profit in spite of not being the number one mobile manufacturer. That sums up Apple's policy of over-pricing but it also shows that their elite business model works - if you don't have an iPhone you don't have an iPhone. I don't buy into that - I have a Sammy - great service in India. I hope Sam maintains its business policy of being the wannabees' phone - because I want to have what iPhone has and more for less price.
Of course Apple is making the most profit, their overpriced fashion-branded garbage is manufactured in slave pens.
!\/@|\|, 05 May 2012hey htc is not 1%. there are many buyers. compared to samsung i recommend htc to anyone.htc is not even 1%. They're talking about "profits", not the total sales. This means manufacturers other than APPLE and SAMSUNG are squeezing out their resources and all their ability to keep up with samsung and apple.
can someone tell me how they rate this thing cos i don't believe this shit... Nokia and HTC did well... Sony rocks and what the **** is samsung sampling? damn it guys am not down with this
Hogwash. travelling around the world, i have seen more Samsung and HTC sets and as much Apple sets as Nokia. People who buy Apple say it is for status while HTC and others for functionality
supernova-77, 05 May 2012really?? Sony Ericsson was that low? too sad... well partly their fault too... late android ph... moreIts good that sony,motorolla and LG stayed out of the competition so they dont get sued by CRapple or SUCKia like what Viewsonic,Samsung and HTC Are going through.
i m using xperia ray from sony quite a good phone to use hope sony will bounce back with the xperia series model...
Unbelievable.. Nokia's at zero. It's their fault..
I still don't get it.. I heard samsung and htc have way more profit.. I think this diagram might be wrong!
This doesn't include the Lumia 900 and Lumia 610 (budget phone) just recently released. Bring the Lumia 610 world wide and Lumia 900 to the rest of the US carriers then they will do fine.
