ultimateslider, 04 Jul 2014you'll be surprised how many people like android better than IOS and they dont care about the ... moreThat's because the iPhone is an excessively over priced scam and some people are smart enough to understand this.
There is no function, technology, or material in the iPhone that makes it logical, proper, or worth costing the same as an Android flagship.
But apple still process it the same anyway because they can and they get away with it. Because millions of people deny it and accept it. So why wouldn't they basically.
It's worth is basically below many midrange Droids. However because if R n D they would have to charge a little more than that understandably. ..but charging the same price as other devices that have boat loads more expensive frames, technology, originality, legality, and vastly more functions is preposterous.

You've noticed this too! People are always trying to cherry pick and skew numbers to make apple look better than they are.

Yeah, apple is the least innovative tech company these days, but the apple cultists just don't see it. They can't see it. its like a religious belief for them.
I was embarrassed for apple when watching their WWDC this year. Their audience would *applaud* them when they were announcing feature that have been in android for 3 years.
apple is a sad company.

WTF are you talking about? You cannot install android on an iphone.
Would be cool if you could. I mean, if you want to put a great OS on the tiny screen of a boring phone.

You are praising the repackaged ideas that Android implements. Widgets? Maemo did it before Android. Of course, before that it was a pretty common idea on Mac OS and XP. Notification bar? That's from Palm. Android did not do it first like you seem to think. Are you the one deluding yourself too?

Respectful and intelligent fans applaud their brand of choice for its strengths, but also give due respect to rivals when they perform.
Even Droid Life is able to produce articles acknowledging features they admire in iOS:
It is also mentioned in the article, even though some things Apple does is available in third party, the way Apple smoothly integrates things with the system is what makes it good. So just because a feature exists, it may not be equal.
To each their own.
Denny Crane, 04 Jul 2014Apple "innovates" new features years AFTER Android did it, first. Live data on your ... moreIn smartphone competition, a company is required to do two things:
1. Catch up with rival features (to achieve a new baseline)
2. Innovate (to push itself ahead)
It's easy to condemn Apple by just mentioning number 1, but totally ignoring number 2.
Gurse, 04 Jul 2014Apple is always better than Samsung Apple gives new innovation and inspiration to developers ... moreApple "innovates" new features years AFTER Android did it, first. Live data on your icons? Welcome to Android in 2010. Pull down top notification bar? Android again. Face it, Apple doesn't innovate. They repackage something old and tell their fan base it's a revolution. Even the iPhone itself- not the first touch screen smartphone. If you like iPhones, that's great. But stop deluding yourself that you're some special snowflake.

No matter how you try to skew the numbers, more people use Android phones than iPhones.
How is symbian still around? Samsung is doing great since Apple bus most of there parts from them. Number 2 phone manufacture and parts supplier to the number 1 phone maker. Not a bad spot.
popye, 04 Jul 2014Apple products are relatively more expensive overseas that's why they don't sell that much out... moreThe article is about Iphones in the USA and Comscore are a US based company and have gathered data.
There are some people who get bent out of shape because Apple are doing so well on their home ground
Apple also do exceptionally well overseas so why if you are using another companies phone does this fact bother you.
ever since iPhones came along the hype has far exceeded what each iPhone bring to the table.
re the iPhone 6 when the finished product comes along I expect to be totally underwhelmed and these leaks just prove that
re rest of the the world
read these GSmarena articles eg
Xiaomi sells more phones in first half of 2014 than all of 2013.... or
It took one second for Xiaomi to sell 10K RedMi Notes
High specs phones at dirt cheap prices!
The specs whilst NOT be optimal are better than what was considered a premium phone 3 or 4 years ago
Yes #1 USA but accept that GSMarena have sourced the info and USA is a very big market but if like me you are using Android does it matter
Just 2 days ago Gsmarena Article.
"New iPhone 6 launch date rumored as front glass panel leaks" and 4.7" iPhone 5.5" iPhone Air
Android been there done that.
I like what I already have with Android and don't expect anyrthing new on the iPhone6 iPhoneair that will make many like me switch.

8 Apple iPhone5s - iOS
5 Samsung Galaxy S5 - Android
2 Motorola MotoX - Android
2 LG G3 - Android
2 Sony Xperia Z2 - Android
1 Nokia Lumia 1520 - Windows Phone
Then you can see, you have more phones from Apple than any other company, but you have more phones with Android than any other mobile OS.
