Do you even have reliable numbers on the output of a single factory? Also, you do realize that you're saying that every Android manufacturer is also lying and 1 billion Android activations is an even bigger lie than Apple's. Too funny. How can they produce hundreds of millions of devices then?
antonio escuadro, 24 Sep 2013Ridiculous lies that no sane individual would ever believe. Foxconn could never build 9 millio... moreHuh? Do you even think before you post? If Samsung cannot produce one million chips for their own smartphones then why do they have sales numbers in the tens of millions? I really believe it is this level of ignorance that fuels alot of the Android fanboys on this site.
antonio escuadro, 24 Sep 2013Ridiculous lies that no sane individual would ever believe. Foxconn could never build 9 millio... moreYes that is correct. It will take a robot thirty minutes to fabricate one arm chip. So assuming samsung uses only one robot to fab, u end end 365 DAYS x 48 that's 24 hours x 2 equals 17520. Now assuming samsung has 100 robots to fab, that's only 1,752,000. 100 robots for sam to fab arm chips is way over estimate already considering the cost of one robot dedicated to fab chips like intel. So apple claim is ridiculous considering only samsung fabricates chips for them, and that is in additipn only to their exynos chips that powers some of their samsung phones. Now we go to foxconn, the firm could not possibly produce one million iphone units in one year since they ar. A busy doing other smartphones for other brands, international and china domestic only. Even if foxconn will ask india to build the iphone for them, a one million unit production of iphone is still a big lie, since assuming india could assemble it, where will they get the chips. Oh yes recycled parts, since apple has so many inventory of unsold iphone5. But even then, close to two million using recycled iphone5 is the only viable production. The only thing they would do is repackage the so many unsold iphone5. Btw, why so many unsold iphone5 and they stop selling aniway? Yes because nobody is buying those toys for toddlers and kids hahah and remember they recycle it into 5s and c lol. Rip apple. Your shares keeps on plummeting.
Ridiculous lies that no sane individual would ever believe. Foxconn could never build 9 million units of iphone in one year. Besides, samsung, the supplier of iphone ipad etc chips could not even produce one million chips in one year, and that includes their chips for their smartphone business. No wonder american economy will never live again because they keep on selling lies after lies.RIP united states of apple.
Anonymous, 24 Sep 2013So if the pre-orders are included in the Sept. 20th shipment then the 9M sales for 3 days isn'... moreThink of a pre-order as a place in line. The sale does not occur until the device was actually made available. Either way, the 5c was the only one available for pre-order. The 5s, which reports indicate outsold the 5c by a 3.5:1 margin, wasn't even available, pre-order or otherwise, until the 20th. And there were lots of 5c sold over the weekend too. Anyway you try to spin it, the numbers are impressive.
If you have a problem with the way the pre-orders are handled, take it up with the industry. That's how everyone does it. But, somehow, when Samsung reports 10 million sold in a month (even though it was up for pre-order a full month before its release and available in many more countries)the fanboys don't find fault with that.
[deleted post]All sales numbers from every company are marketing hype. Why are you so upset when apple does it.
Anonymous, 24 Sep 2013Took Samsung a month to sell 10 million S4. Wow Apple OWNS Sammydidn't know there was a sale made in the first place.
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2013Pre-orders aren't sales. Why would they report it as sales? So if the pre-orders are included in the Sept. 20th shipment then the 9M sales for 3 days isn't accurate. Now do you get my point?
This is what matters most, people vote with their $$$$$ not with their opinion. Apple rules!!!!!!!
9 millions in one week ?
apple 5s & 5c it was made by david coperfield....Lol
so with people believing the 5s camera is amazing, i think you need to look at this..... still waiting on my Z1 but hey its worth waiting for and im not going to be an idiot camping outside a Sony store lol
Bilal, 23 Sep 2013IOS 7 is an overstatement. Trying on Andriod and Blackberry OS 10 are much superior platforms ... moreIf you had a 4s, that means you were able to upgrade to iOS7 before you could have purchased a 5s. So if iOS7 lacks "basic features" then why would you spend the money to upgrade to a 5s?
I don't think you own either phone, or you just aren't very smart.
AnonD-1825, 23 Sep 2013What you say about this?
"Apple Boosts Quarterly Revenue Guidance on Strong iPhone Sal... moreWell, believe whatever you want to believe. Don't be fooled by Apple's nonsense just because you are to much of an Apple fanboy.
I also bet you was believing Apple when they said that Samsung was not fair in the last discussion they had about the latest patent dispute.
Apple said Samsung was unfair and dumb to not accept Apple's ideas to solve the patent war.
I said for a long long time that it wasn't Samsung who was the problem here, it was Apple.
And guess what?
Later an article (witch i can't remember right now where i found it) did come out that had gotten information about why none of them came to an agreement. It was because Apple requested 30 dollar per Samsung phone with Android sold and i think it was 40 or 50 dollar for each Samsung tablets sold.
And Apple told us all that Samsung was dumb and unfair to not accept that.
Who was the unfair part here really?
So yes, believe whatever you like in Apple's nonsense.
If this is true then only retirement homes are buying them because a lot of people who I talked to who use iPhones do not think the 5s is a worthy upgrade but are seriously considering moving to an android based phone as apple is offering nothing new.

Tom-Helge, 23 Sep 2013All should read this: http://gigaom.com/2013/05/09/what-apple-really-means-when-it-says-it-has... moreThey may probably ask:
How is that different from any other company?
What is there channel inventory?
And point out this part of the article:
Samsung and Amazon, for example, two of the most prominent Android device vendors, famously refuse to share either shipment or sales totals in their quarterly results. There are no legal requirements that companies do so. But that secrecy can be used to imply that Samsung or Microsoft or ZTE or whomever are “channel stuffing,” which is retail lingo for shipping a bunch of products to a distributor even if a business can’t or won’t sell them, just to make it look like there’s demand for its product.
It's official! There are no more space grey iPhone 5s available anywhere! Not even the 64GB version!!
Now I have to wait till October to order one online!
LOUD CLEAR MESSAGE TO IPHONES apple bosses - NOW YOU KNOW - look after loyal customers !!!!! show your loyality to customers .. and stop stupid arrogant law suits-paternity/maternity/copyrights/intellectual property etc etc.. focus on best products at best prices with best customer care services ... ok !!
