He was making things up because he didn't like the report. Why don't you actually look at the source material before believing random people on the internet.
Someone, 22 May 2014 Isnt weird. USA usually buy their own products. Same with Korea buying Samsungs over Apples.Lots of Korean tourists here, surprisingly many of them had Xperia phones the last year or so, and very many of them have iPhone. Didnt see even one with LG, i think its because LG phones are mainly sold with carrier subsidy in Korea, through LGs own carrier, and then will not work with foreign sim cards.
gam30toronto, 23 May 2014post or not post? make up your mind when posting.Well mr sharpest tool in the shed when all the other tools are away on vacation, get ready for the teaspoon, hope i will not serve it to you in too big and mysterious doses. The last line is meant to be more serious and means to say that his research will be worthless, so no need to post back, especially since the first part is only joking. Its the concept of writing something you dont really mean at all and then in the end give a reality check, and the reality check for that guy is that he absolutely do not need to post back.
Apple rules again, 23 May 2014This shows that Apple is the best. We locked the system down so no one can make stupid changes... moreApple is really good. I had some dusts inside the camera lens.... they just give me a brand new phone.

Also, how us this not an independent source?

By the way, dont post back, please.

They live in their own reality. Normal people are free to choose and every OS and manufacturer has a product that has it's advantages.
It's all marketing. Samsung spends 4+ billions in marketing for their phones. Apple spends around 1 billion.
[deleted post]If you need an education to use a simple consumer device, then that device was not designed very well. Of course, Android phones are not that complicated. Only dull Android fanboys think so in order to make themselves feel a little bit better about their sad selves.
and wheres the bb? whatever!!and i dont care about that graph.. blackberry 4 evah!!!

You're saying that the data is skewed because in order to gain a realistic and accurate representation of what consumers buy, people need to hang out at where mobiles are sold and actually witness the transaction?
LMAO...Stay in school.
This is an Apple paid research. If you actually watch what customers buy at the stores it tells a different story.
This shows that Apple is the best. We locked the system down so no one can make stupid changes and Apple just work!!! All you need to do is follow the exact way recommended and it will work. If only every government behave like Apple and enforce everyone to eat the same amount of food, use the same amount of electricity, get the same pay, live the same amount of time. It'll be perfect.
[deleted post]and Apple fanboys are even less educated
buying mid range phone at high end prices????
this is a fact that really makes me question peoples sanity
(with the exception of people who have a full set up of Apple products)
Further more these are not surprising stats but people need to start buying other brands that actually stand up to what they are supposed to apple and samsung dont generally pass reviews with flying colours like people seem to believe
im thinking about going for an HTC once i fully get Over my Z1
Apple has had considerable success betting on the vainness of its customers. Congratulations with that.
droopy, 22 May 2014Data is OLD, with new S5 launch in US, Samsung is over Apple. Please post actual information.Please post actual sense. How are they going to post quarterly numbers that haven't occurred yet? You fanboys usually look dim when you try to talk about anything relevant. Stick to looking at paper specs.
