It's the worldwide marketshare that counts as it doesn't tells how good Apple is doing overall just because they are doing great in one country.
The marketshare worldwide have been sinking quite alot for Apple the last year or two. And that's not a good sign for many.
If Apple had been listening to what the market want's and not what their existing customers want's, they would have done much better.
Android sells because Google knows what the market want's, that's the true fact of this.
Apple doesn't know what the market want's as they only knows what their existing customers want's.

Apple's market share may have slipped slightly, but Apple has been in this game for well over 7 years, and predictions are it's increasing in share once again.
Androids predominant market share is made up of low to mid-end devices. Keep in mind that Apple remains in the #2 spot in the OS game and even by devices shipped to the market for a single manufacturer.
But believe what you will, it's pointless to continue this argument. I'm off.

NFC have tons of usefull ways to be used and not just to do payments. If you know what NFC is capable of, you know Apple is doing a huge mistake by not using NFC.
4k is not fully in the market yet, but it's still a good thing to have if you needs it. Just because you don't needs it doesn't mean everyone else doesn't needs it. There is actually tons of peoples that want's it. I'm one of them.
And LOL, yeah, Apple goes after what their existing customer want's and not what the market overall want's today. Why do you think Apple's marketshare is growing so slowly compared to others?
Yes it's because Apple goes after what their existing customers want's. And to me and many others, that's a huge mistake to do as that will hurt you BADLY in the long run.
Like now, the markershare to Apple / iPhone is starting to get so low that many peoples will see this and the iPhones will just get more and more irrelevant for every months that goes as peoples always will go towards those who are doing great in the market.
Yes, according to Apple they are doing fine. But that's just through their own bubble and eyes. But according to the rest of the market, they are living dangerously now as the iOS devices is their main income of money. So if they screws this up, they are in HUUUUUUUGE troubles.
Yes, i do needs 4k video recording because 4k recording actually look better on a 1080p screen than 1080p video recording does. Just because i don't have the screen to view the native 4k resolution it doesn't mean the 1080p materials will be better on a 1080p screen just because 1080p is the native resolution.

Apple knows the market conditions for its target market, and they will NOT implement just anything to be on top of other manufacturers, if it doesn't fit its segment.
Apple does not and will never use NFC. It doesn't fit in its model because the technology is too diverse and not easily implemented to suit a global audience.
4K is a gimmick right now because only a very small % of the population have a real need for it. Even less have access to hardware that can support 4K playback. So why would Apple implement it now? In 2 years time, when the hardware is affordable and the market has matured to 4K, they will implement it perhaps. And perhaps even sooner.
Apple does what the majority of users have told them they want, not what a few techie geeks like you need for no apparent reason.
Admit it - you don't NEED 4k, chances are you don't even have a TV or PC with 4k resolution, but you want it because you want the best and latest in technology. Then go with Sony, but don't expect the same from Apple.

And because it's always better to have to much RAM than to little RAM.
On Samsung ROMs, it's the applications they have that use so much space and not the skins.

It's called plastic because it feels the same as plastic.
The only advantage aluminum have is that it feels better in the hand. When the phone gets hot, the aluminum will spread the heat over the whole phone witch is a downside. When you are out in the cold, the whole phone feels really cold because aluminum spreads the cold to.
When you drops the phone with aluminum down to the asphalt, you will get really ugly marks on your phone.
Aluminum is also cheaper to make over Polycarbonate.
When your phone with polycarbonate gets hot, it will only be hot in one place. When you are outside where it's cold, the phone wont feel like it's icy cold. When you drop the phone with polycarbonate down on the asphalt, you will only get some few scratches that you barely will see.
Not only that, but polycarbonate is easier to change out over phones with aluminum as most phones with polycarbonate does have removable back covers and so on.
The fact is that polycarbonate have WAAAY more advantages over what aluminum have. There are few negative sides with polycarbonate while aluminum have way more negative sides.
So polycarbonate is much better in the daily usage for most peoples.

Apple also claims the iPhone 5c has a beautifully polycarbonate colorful body but that doesn't change the fact that is plastic . It is mere plastics. The quality of plastic differs but still is plastic. Aluminium is more superior because it doesn't wear off with time and its more durable while plastic is lighter and if it falls it creates a lighter momentum and less pressure for the screen to break that is it but aluminium is 110% better. The galaxy picks up scratches like crazy on the back. Even Ryan Biden the head of Samsung product marketing said that they choose to go with polycarbonate instead of something of higher quality like aluminium to make our phones lighter and more expendable. This are literally his exact words.

The multitasking on the iPhone is a complete joke. Or most of the things on the iPhone is a joke compared to the Galaxy S and Note series as you can't get anything serious done on it because of it's low speced hardware and tiny screen. Or because of the way the iOS is, there is no need for very good hardwares on the iPhones as iOS is extremely handicapped compared to what Android allows us to do.
And also, most peoples doesn't needs a DSLR camera to take good enough pictures. All they need to take good pictures is a smartphone with a good camera on it.
Only the professionals who needs insanly good optics is the ones who needs DSLR cameras.
But just because DSLR cameras exists it doesn't mean the developments of the smartphone cameras have to slow down.

And why don't you rather want a 13, 16 or even 20 megapixels camera that are very good over having a low resolution 8 megapixels camera that are good?
Why can't Apple just concentrate on making good 16 / 20 megapixels cameras instead of sitting on the same resolution that they have done for ages?
Why not make a 16 or 20 megapixels camera like everyone else is doing and rather change the resolution on the camera instead if you don't like having such big resolutions?
The same applies to the 4k video recording. If you don't like it, then use 1080p instead.
It's not about what just you want on your phone, it's about what the market are demanding today and what many other peoples are demanding.
I don't say we apple fans don't want better specs but let's be honest; I preferred very good 8Mp camera than mediocre 13Mp camera. 4K recording is no sense there's no pc or tv or even cellphone with such resolution ( except some very expensive Tv 4000€ or more)
320 x 480 3.5 inch and 3mp camera are enough we don't need 3.7 inch 480 x 800 and 5mp it's useless
two years later...omg 640 x 960 omg 5mp best phone ever! zomg we don't need 4 inch 1280 x 720 and 8mp it's useless

Just because Apple says you don't need it, doesn't make it to be the case.
Not only that, if you don't like 4k recording, then choose 1080p video recording and leave the 4k recording to those who wants it instead.
Or do you still think Apple knows what's best for you?
And have you heard about freedom to choose what's best for you?

Here is another thing to.
If Apple still goes for 8 megapixels camera, it doesn't just means they will keep the low megapixel counts on the camera, but it means no 4k video recording will be possible.
Are you (Apple fans) gonna claim no one needs that to either?
Yeah, Apple, please make the next iPhone so no one want's it. Sounds like a good plan, right?
