Hamburger Stand is cheaper than McDonalds...why is McDonalds still selling more? Why are generics at the store not outselling the name brands?03-25-2014 01:26 PM
Apple wants to be a premium brand. There's is nothing wrong with that. That doesn't make their products better. That doesn't mean it's competitors suck. Look at the automotive industry. There's a place for BMW and Mercedes among Toyota and GM. Volume doesn't mean the product is better. Volume also doesn't mean the product is worse.
It's all just different philosophies. Apple is more hardware than services. Google is using the open Android platform and the Google Play Store to get people to use Google services. Room for both. Not a zero sum game. They all want to lock you in. But if you guys want to argue about winning and losing by comparing sales and marketshare, go right ahead.03-25-2014 01:35 PMLike 8

Apple wants $650 for their base iPhone 5S. AT&T wants $640 for the HTC One. Verizon wants for the HTC One $600. T-Mobile wants $660 for the Samsung Galaxy S5. Sprint wants $650 for the Samsung Galaxy S5. The "premium" Apple product falls right in-line but perception is killer.03-25-2014 02:03 PMLike 3
- Finally. Someone with common sense. Ry I appreciate your post. They aren't oh Google's better look how many phone they sell. It's Apple vs Everyone when it comes to the Google operating system. Apple has offered for the most part one choice until recently. Apple still has amazing sells numbers but they gear towards a smaller market. It's common since Googles operating system is on more handsets and sells more. Doesn't mean Apple doesn't produce a great device themselves and surpass their own sales goal consistently.03-25-2014 02:37 PM
There really is no getting around the fact that people are making a choice. Even on-contract, there are Android phones at all the same price points as iPhones. But people are buying Android phones instead.Apple wants $650 for their base iPhone 5S. AT&T wants $640 for the HTC One. Verizon wants for the HTC One $600.

Why are people buying these "junk phones" if they can get an iPhone for the same price? What is Android offering them that they cannot get from Apple?03-25-2014 04:13 PM

- I see it especially in the US market, because the US is a wealthy nation. People here can afford iPhones. So if they are not buying them, it is not because they can't afford them.

In US devices, it's 40% Apple, 25% Samsung.
In US platform market share, it's 40% iOS, 50% Android.
People are still buying and using iPhones. Yeah, in the US people are making a choice. Nearly half are still picking iPhone.

So why are they buying Android phones instead of iPhones if it is not because of cost?03-25-2014 05:13 PM
- Over half of them are choosing Android phones over any iPhone in the US, according to your own link. By a 10% margin even. It's not even close.
So why are they buying Android phones instead of iPhones if it is not because of cost?
Apple continues to sell more iPhones than it ever has. They're doing just fine.

"When I read about us in the press, it's always us vs. some other company or some stupid thing," Page said. "I just don't find that interesting." Page added that "most important things are not a zero-sum game. There's a lot of opportunity out there."

The logic you follow still is false when the iPhone came out Windows phones where made by a multitude of vendors, by yoyr logic they should have never surpassed Windows.03-25-2014 07:00 PM
- If you drop all the Android competitor and just pair up Samsung vs Apple and you'll see Android is still dominating.

Apple isn't floundering, contrary to what some link-bait sites want you to believe. Record revenue? Record sales? So much cash in the bank? lol.

- Japan belongs to Apple: iPhone claims top 10 spots in total smartphone sales in November
In news that Android fanboys will likely want to spit at, Japans top 10 smartphone sales chart currently reads 100-percent iPhone, it has been revealed.
Now carried by all three of the countrys biggest mobile providers, Apples iPhone has become immensely popular in Japan in recent years and is seemingly the must-have mobile this November.
Despite strong competition from Samsungs Galaxy series and Sony with its Xperia Z1 (released in Japan on October 23), across Japans three biggest mobile carriers, NTT docomo, KDDIs au, and Softbank, Apples smartphones now hold the entire top 10 in the sales chart, proving once and for all that despite its initial reluctance to embrace smartphones, Japan now simply adores iPhone.
NTT docomo claimed the most iPhone sales overall, perhaps on account of the 5s and 5c being the first iPhones the mobile operator has ever carried and its customers leaping on the chance to get a little bit of shiny new Apple tech.Total handset sales across all networks
1. iPhone 5s 32GB (NTT docomo)
2. iPhone 5c 16GB (Softbank)
3. iPhone 5s 64GB (Softbank)
4. iPhone 5s 32GB (Softbank)
5. iPhone 5s 32GB (au)
6. iPhone 5s 16GB (Softbank)
7. iPhone 5s 16GB (au)
8. iPhone 5c 16GB (au)
9. iPhone 5s 16GB (NTT docomo)
10. iPhone 5s 64GB (au)03-25-2014 07:18 PM

- Ry no matter how often you post the common sense answer, and show Apple is still widely successful despite Android being successful as well these Android groupies will argue with you. They want it to appear Apple is failing horrifically no matter what, and will argue that position until you agree. The reason for this phenomenon who knows. It's entertaining to watch though.03-25-2014 11:20 PM
