Android devices still have delay issues unlike ios.
Apple do more with less.
E.g Apple needs only 1gb ram to run any powerful app while android devices make use twice this to achieve same results.
Thats the power of IOS.

Have you heard of the third biggest smartphone maker in the world - Huawei? Are they barely staying afloat? Their profit last year grew with 36%,a lot more than the single digit growth of apple's profit.

Apple's earnings went up maybe because their milking Samsung on their non sense court war. :)
Apple file a case against Samsung because of a patent issue but the truth is Apple just want to earn money. :)

This 'ripping off' argument was lame in the very beginning, but now its just sad and desperate.
People buy iPhones, because they love them. Plain and simple.
TDMaster, 24 Apr 2014Well when u have customers that pay 500$ extra on a lame device why they dont show those profi... moreVery though provoking. All consumers need to do is stop buying "lame" devices start buying "normal" devices.
That is an excellent business model. You're a genius...lol
May i ask a question? I see that apple's revenue and profit are 5% up year-on-year. What was the general growth of the smartphone industry for the same period? What was the world's inflation in the mean time? My guess is that global inflation is at least in the 2-3% range and the smartphone industry must have grown with at least 30%. So apple is actually falling behind the curve with these results.
"Tim Cook: 60+% of iPhone 4s and 5c buyers are ‘Android Switchers’"
Both samsung and apple are making billions. They must be behind doors shaking hands and laughing while the fanbois are fighting and hating each other. LOL the whole court battles are just a show to fuel the fans.
mjelicious, 24 Apr 2014wow.. nice to know that.
earnings are big maybe because your milking Samsung in your war.Reading is easy. You should try it sometimes.
"The strong financial results were achieved thanks to stellar iPhone sales. Apple moved 43.7 million smartphones in Q2 – up from 37.4 million for the same period last year."
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2014who say Apple is going down? LOLhater...
wow.. nice to know that.
earnings are big maybe because your milking Samsung in your war.
Of course the profits big when you rip your customers off,,profits on memory alone should have started ringing bells years ago and Trading Standards investigate...Its daylight robbery and people buying 32gb and 64gb model iphone need their heads reading.

Apples fiscal year begins on Sept. 29. Another example would be Sony. Their fiscal year starts on April 1. So, they will be reporting their Q4 results on May 14 for Jan-Mar.
