Don't be so ignorant,when record sales and revenues,they will count in everything noob,they will inclute all the iphones versions,mac verions and ipad versions etc and they are all accumulated to calcualte the profit. The same goes to Samsung too,whether it is lower end or higher end,both are still Samsung products and they will all be accumulated.C'mon.

I will buy an Iphone again when the people who physically make the product can afford to buy it. That's the same reason I don't drink coffee at Starbucks.
And what about this news:
"Samsung sells 86 million smartphones in Q4 to set a new record; tops Apple for the quarter and year"
Or it's not good news??????
i will probably never buy an iphone but with that being said every android phone i used had issues.

Apple's ios and their hardware have numerous documented bugs and defects. Much worse than any other hardware or software manufacturer. Apple phones are made in China now and the manufacturing and assembly problems are well known.
Who talks about Chinese manufacturing quality? Nobody because it's an oxymoron.
Why so much profit then? Because Apple phones are ridiculously overpriced and they continue selling phones with very high profit margins. Most people aren't aware Apple is still selling the 3gs (a nearly 5 year old phone) and the 4 in many parts of Asia, the Middle East and Latin America.
Fact is Apple is milking every cent of profit from people who believe the false premise you just posted. Apple keeps lowering the price point of their old phones in less affluent countries to keep the revenue stream going on outdated hardware.
The real story is that Apple continues to lose market share in nearly every country (with less than 5 exceptions last I recall) and will continue to do so unless they come up with a drastically new design on the iphone 6 and price their phones more competitively.
Apple makes a premium product. It pays meticulous attention to design, workmanship and user experience.
It's the sum of its parts and mostly it provides good value.
Some people get it, some people don't.
..... Of course when you charge 400% inflation on products with Chinese labour and westerners line up to buy these products to look kewl and act like children to their friends of course.... You will have record profits.
It ain't rocket science..
The real question and article is Apple conspired with nsa to reveal user data?

Owning Apple products is very very simple; Follow exactly how they tell you to use it. They already mentioned: "Buy the storage option you think you require for now and the future"
Same with those that buy apple products hoping it will connect to other non iDevices.. they will be sorely disappointed.
Way to go... No matter what detractors say, iPhone 5S is a beauty and with Apple entering the big screen market this year, the revenues will only go up
A. Lincoln said: you can fool some people all the time and all people some of the time but not all people all of the time. He was wrong.
wonder how many were 16gb iphones because folk like me did not want to give apple 200GBP for some extra memory that costs them 5GBP.
