ONE phone has sold less than a myriad different phones running the same operating system...huge surprise there
Apple rules. Superior, classy, and sophisticated, and not to mention user friendly. It is just a much better phone than any Samsung. I used a Samsung, and would not use it again if it was given to me for free.
After twelve years of therapy my psychiatrist said something that brought tears to my eyes. He said, No hablo ingles.
I just want to thanks everyone who manifests the lunacy which is gadget fanboyism, you make me feel like the most intelligent dude in the room almost every day.
It seems that Apple has made the same mistake with IOS it made so many times before: Create a great, revolutionary product and then limit / bully / close / get arrogant / get greedy until the competition leapfrogs them.
IOS was miles ahead of Android a few years ago, but right now I would no longer even consider an IPhone - one can get so much more for the same price if you go Android. Dropping youtube (and other competing products) in IOS6 is the latest in a string of self defeating acts.
I'm pretty sure Apple will continue to be successful in the space but the dominant player they will be no more.
Other examples of the same are the original mac, iMac and iTunes (which is much less dominant than a few years back).
Sony does the exact same thing: Betamax, minidisk, produo where all technically superior products that got beat by the more open competition due to greed and closed ecosystems.
I ❤ minority, it's like saying only the minority drive Bentley's 😜
