joonius, 21 Oct 2014He's not talking about "poor" people or people who "can't afford" iPhones.... moreThat "can't afford it" stuff is really not an argument, agreed. Most people have more expensive things than phones, it's just that some think iPhones are worth the money and some don't.
Edit: The news are in, they didn't sell 62 million but 39.2 million. So much for analysts and their predictions.
Reaper8, 21 Oct 2014Thats why I made a totally unrelated comment and it went right over his head lol.You didn't even understand my second comment. I don't expect you to understand my first one.
Anonymous, 21 Oct 2014LOL, i stopped reading at the "premium build and materials" comment.I stopped at "American engineering" haha.
Maybe the bendgate fiasco has helped apple create more media mileage for their iphone 6, no need to advertise since it is already being advertise by all the tech blogs around the world for free...

Any sensible Apple fanboy knows he's not buying an iPhone because they are rich and also understand why people would buy another brand phone.

All your comments are bagging Samsung and you expect us to believe your battery and price comments? If you wan't to lie it should be believable.
Why do people buy Apple, who knows?? Stupidity may be??? Why do people buy android who knows? affordability may be?? All I know is if I had to choose between the Note 4 and the Apple 6 , I'd go for the GN4. It is simple, why buy a fiat 500 when I can get a Ferrari for the same price.

I guess those in the lower income bracket can't read between the lines.
It's very simple: if you can't afford or otherwise complain about Apple's pricing strategy -- you're not their target market. ok? Got it? Another user already agreed with me, they got it, they probably make more money, too.

Drained battery from 100 to 20 percent in 1 hour. Appears randomly on all android devices and the only solution is a full factory reset which means losing all my data on it. Sold it for 350 usd and got the iPhone 6, 128 GB. 860 USD but absolutely zero issues.
Android has a long way to go before power users take it seriously.

android phones die out in 1 year. IOS many people still using 4s.

I have windows laptop. You can download iTunes on any PC because there are iTunes that Apple made to be downloaded on PC. so no problem at all I can sync my music from my laptop to my iPhone via iTunes.

-Premium build and materials.
-Best in the world, American engineering that results in a device that's more than the sum of its parts.
-Thin, powerful and fluid.
-World beating performance.
-Best third party application selection
-Controlled OS environment which translates to security and ease of management.
-Regular updates to supported devices. No need to wait for '90 days'
-Fluid user experience
This is why Apple sells.
Angry Mobile Nerd, 21 Oct 2014That's exactly what I was getting at, maybe you need to read my comment again *very* carefully... moreCouldnt have said it better myself. This is a device for people who are willing to pay a premium for quality and brand.

And if you think you understand "rich people" by buying iPhones, you make me laugh because there are plenty of fools who are broke buying iPhones by using all their life savings or selling everything they have. Apple's target also isn't rich people. Just because Apple prices their products above other brands doesn't mean they are targeting the rich. Basic marketing course will tell you otherwise.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying Apple isn't doing a good job at marketing. I'm pointing out that statements like "people complain about iDevice prices because they can't afford it" is absolutely wrong. Basic economics principles explain why some people complain about Apple's pricing.

Note4 = bye byeFord sells more than Ferrari too....
There is no doubt that iphone sells millions to middle age mums and teens because of its simplicity and name (rapidly diminishing with the numerous hardware and soft ware issues over the last 2 years).
BUT if you are a power user then iPhones are simply too limited. The Note 4 is currently the best phone available with the Z3 in second place.
