cfm69, 06 Apr 2013Be careful with your word buddy!!! And don’t be so naive!!!Dude did you just tried to threaten me ? have you any idea with who are you talking with ? you should be afraid not me since I work in a special department at C.I.A. that monitors search and discovers any wrong doings of the multinational corporations that means any social engineering techniques used by companies like Apple to mislead deceive misguide and abuse users trust in order to achieve financial success.
I can promise you that in a short amount of time some big heads will fall out of Apple's administration board that are engaged in such illegal activities.
Duel, 06 Apr 2013I dont buy brand, and also im not buying paper specs, those doesnt mean anything. I buy great ... moreVery true statements.
Dumb people look at plain specs and then buy.
Smart people look at performance, style and real life usage then buy.
Its a joke when you compare ghz / mp cam .. when you should be comparing performance / responsiveness / battery life usage instead.
Thats why theres tis trend of people testing android out . disappointed .. then going back to ios
The only thing android excels is compatibility with other non iProducts, thats all.

When WP8 launched, I laughed at the UI design. But now I m looking for the simplicity, and even considering to buy one! Oh well.. maybe this is karma. LOL.
Brandon, 06 Apr 2013Android has more markect share because of the cheap android smartphone lol... TRUE.
Maca, 06 Apr 2013weh really you are capable to pay only brand not the specs?I dont buy brand, and also im not buying paper specs, those doesnt mean anything. I buy great real life usage.
What you mean by specs? Bigger numbers on paper?
David Auster, 05 Apr 2013No matter how many cores or features... iphone is a BRAND no one cares what it makes nobody ne... moreSorry but you are only part right .
But to address the article, the main reason why IOS has shown a surge is due to IP5 being released, new phone peaks demand and iPhone owner seek to update their phone,. The high demand is due to a new phone being released. Statistis like this show a snapshot between one period and another and do NOT take account of an event
What would have been better is a moving average as well, if you looked as sales during November you would get a sudden increase
The SGS 2 is vastly superior to the IP4S it has won 4 Phone of the year awards, Unfortunately I agree with APPLE that Samsung COPIED, the SGS III won the SAME 4
phone of the year awards a year later.
I have seen IP4S contracts that are more than the SGS III, that people are willing to pay absurd price for an iphone is NOT a reflection of value juts the opposite.
The IP5 has 1.2GHz DC processor & 8MP camera, as does the SGS II ,The SGS II was launched 18 month before the IP5
I do not take lesson from IOS owners when their product are playing catch up, if someone prefers the IP4S over the SGS II then it they do need to get the GSMarena App,
I do not even try to understand why iPhones cost as much as they do, a HIGHER price will NOT be paid by some-one who knows how to read comparison website, would you.
sarath.john, 06 Apr 2013Apple is actually cheating its customers by luring them to buy over priced phones in the name ... morePeople doesnt feel cheated, also they dont feel they paid too much. When you are happy with your device and doesnt think even once how expensive the product was, you know its great product.
Apple have always most satisfied customers so i dont see where apple is cheating.
Those overpriced talk usually comes from users who have never owned iPhone.
Android has reached saturation point, and I believe that Windows Phones are making inroads in the affordable phone category.
It's all about preference anyways, the part where "it just works" is nothing more than marketing, there are stuffs that doesn't work with IOS just as there are stuffs that doesn't work with Android, but what I love about android that it can be country specific, the value for money ratio of android phones is way higher than IOS phones, here in the Philippines I am using Starmobile ASTRA (7,000.00PHP), it might not be as good as IPhone 5 (29,500.00PHP) when it comes to camera and sound and it doesn't have a virtual assistant such as siri, but it does its job well for everything else, and it has a list of stuffs that IPhone 5 doesn't have, for example: tv function, native 3g video call, dual sim, etc... What I love about android is it can be customized down to the root.

you think so? this is not about the money.. its about the preference of the users.. iOS is good but android is better for me, suit my needs, I can customize, explore and personilize my android phone. and please don't ever assume that android users will buy iOS if they have money.. I have known a lot of android users here in my place richer than the iOS users. by the way i bought a TV and the REMOTE control looks like ip5.. LOLZZZ
pencileraser08, 05 Apr 2013people always think that android phones should compete with the iPhone all the time, but here'... moreHey pencileraser!! At last I have found some sensible user who have judged the smart phones in its right way than just making cheap war with words over the brand name. I agree to all that you have said; one should get a smart phone that is worth for the money paid, unlike apple iphone who charges exorbitant prices. AND TO ALL THOSE SO CALLED APPLE IPHONE FAN BOYS: Did you know that the actual cost including shipping costs to make an iphone is about just 207 US $? The maximum price they are charging for their phone in the name of premium brand is 647 US $!!! Any doubt? Copy and paste this link in your browsers address bar and see for yourself under the topic production: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_iPhone_5#section_2. Apple iphone is a gadget which is only affordable for Americans as they get it at subsidised rates under carrier contracts and i am sorry to say that, again my American friends are easily tricked by the service providers as the monthly contract fees that they pay for two years, when's summed up together with the subsidised rate of iphone will be an amount much higher than the cost of iphone itself! A common message to all of my much respected fellow smart phone users. Be careful about each penny that you spend on smartphones. Before buying, make a thorough evaluation on the phone that you are buying. The smartphone manufacturers and service providers out there are really cunning and are always keeping an eye on your wallet!! Super profits are the major goals of such gaints. Beware customers!!! ;)

if money weren't a problem, i'd buy an iphone 5
it's battery life just great ...
but with a less money, i could get xperia z..
it has many features i don't really need.. but it cost less... with the same, even sometimes more features..
except battery life is no as good as apple's phones
Good for apple in the us, but in my country blackberry is #1 and whoever own an apple, they also own blackberry for sure. Congratulations apple, and keep fighting blackberry.
