[deleted post]LOL. As someone who cannot get their grammar straight for even a single sentence, you shouldn't be so insulting to people who choose to purchase a rather good product that you obviously can't appreciate and probably can't afford.

Microsoft fan: "Look, Look, Microsoft smartphones grew at 6.7% which is faster than all other platforms... by 2015 WP will rule the world"

Many of the phones sold in emerging markets, where much of the growth is happening, are lower end and/or cheap devices that run Android, a la Micromax, Huawei etc. . That's not to knock Android or anything, but it's just what's happening on the ground.
It's all about marketing in USA. Samsung and Apple pour tons of money to marketing. That's how they get people to buy cheap and ugly Samsung phones in bulks.
Nick, 06 Nov 2013Iphone was good in 2008.
In 2013 it lacks many features and brick like design is still nice b... moreNope. People i the US care about good UI and good hardware design, and the iPhone still wins on both, particularly against Samsung.
I have both an Android phablet and an iPhone 5, and while at the beginning I did like the large screen of the phablet, now I use it less and less. Just too big for comfortable daily use. Also, I do have more dropped calls with the phablet than with the iPhone (both on T-Mobile).
My 5 is not slow at all with iOS7, so I don't know what you are talking about.
I am thinking of upgrading to the iPhone 5S, mainly for the fingerprint sensor, which does provide the first useful hardware innovation in mobile in a couple of years, IMO.
Don't get me wrong: Android is a great OS (since 4.2), but Apple does offer a better integrated package overall.
Technically, Apple is not an OEM. Foxconn, the company which manufacturers Apple is OEM. Apple is not is "manufacturer", it is a technically a patent company. Patent in its technology and design.
Nokia has also now become the 4th largest OEM in the US, ahead of HTC and Blackberry, which is a magnificient achievement for them
Iphone was good in 2008.
In 2013 it lacks many features and brick like design is still nice but outdated
Frankly ios 7 design brings iphone closer to competition, but it is slow and has some bugs. And i have iphone 5, not iphone 4
I really get used to say hello two times cause the first usually is dropped. One hand operation is uncomfortable because you need to hit small icons like x. Bottom control center sucks too, i open it when scrolling down in web browser
Disappointed. Really want something different
Looks like US people don't really care
EskeRahn, 06 Nov 2013Impressive that WP is still only 10 times the long gone Symbian....I'm impressed that there are people in the USA using Symbian at all. Posted via Samsung Galaxy, just testing it and after 15 minutes I wanna kiss my N8.

Anonymous, 06 Nov 2013LOL, US has only using 5 smartphone brands. Sounds legit. These are the top 5 brands. A little bit of basic math shows that it only adds up to 86%. The rest will be in the "other" category.
Common_636, 06 Nov 2013How is it possible that Apple is the top U.S OEM... but Android is the U.S top platformAll other companies use Android duh.
Interesting figures. In November 2012, Android had 54% market share and iOS had 35%. The latest figures show Android's continued decline in the US smartphone market at the expense of iOS and WP.
