This is simply starting to be an Android monopoly, which I am not really sure if it is a good thing. Anyway, better than Apple No.1 3-4 years ago.
Anonymous, 29 Aug 2014Even if you count only high-end Android devices, they sell MUCH more than iPhone5S. The main ... moreOf course they sell better. iPhone sold over 500 millions till date. Only Samsung S and Note flagships sold around 350 millions around the globe till now. So, if you add the others, the result will be much over 600 millions!
The source also says: “It’s becoming increasingly clear just how important Samsung’s existing customers are to driving new sales. Some 52% of customers who bought a Samsung Galaxy S5 in Great Britain had previously owned a Samsung model, while 20% were previous Apple owners, and 18% moved from HTC.” Why not adding this paragraph if we are so impartial? This is equally important!
It looks like people woke up. Finally they realize that there are many pretty darn good ultra fast Android phones out there which give freedom and ease of use. You don't need an iPhone to have a quality bulit - working ultra fast product which does not give the user barriers all the time
closing, 29 Aug 2014-11.8 in usa ?? Apple is doomed.Apple is not doomed because they have a lot of cash which will keep them alive another 20 years unfortunately. Besides when the iPhone 6 gets released the Americans will start buying en masse, because they don't have the habit of thinking for themselves.

Yes you guys are all around the world cuz in every ... more... and which one is the Ferrari? Apple? You must be kidding, right?
I was replying to the guys that said that we should change the statistics because apple has only a few expensive devices and can't win against android in pure sales numbers.
Why shouldn't quantity equal quality? Apple is out of this world - they should be able to make and sell huge quantities dwarfing android, right? What stops the great apple of making high quality devices at lower price point to steal android's thunder? The field is open wide - let them prove themselves.

The main point here is that iPhone5S is not any better or more capable, than many mid-range Android devices(like mid-range Samsung devices or Nexus)

You can say chinese made well almost all smartphones are made in CHina. If say mid range why is it samsung selling overly price s5 but you can get an xiaomi mi 4 way cheaper and same specs. Don't make fool ourselves because I myself is using an android s5.

Android makers are not one monolith block. They fight each other way more fiercely than they fight apple. Samsung fights as many companies as apple does. And so do lg, Sony, huawei, etc. And still Samsung outsells apple. And still Xiaomi crushed everybody in the biggest smartphone market in the world.

Yes you guys are all around the world cuz in every corner you see someone with an Android device.
This is like compare a Ferrari with an Audi. Both are great but a few costumers want to buy what make they feel better...

And we all saw how well that 5c experiment went.
An iFAIL of huge proportion.

The only reason Apple is strong is because their customer's pay silly money for a product with average specs and features for a low cost Chinese built phone.

This is the change from one year ago. Meaning the iphone 5s was released during this time and ios lost market share.
To put it in context, several iphones were released during the past year. The iphone 6 will be released next month. In Aug 2015 I expect the trend will continue.
You really don't understand the numbers and how year over year comparisons work, do you?
