Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c monopolize Japanese sales charts

0. phoneArena 30 Nov 2013, 14:10 posted on

Never has a sales chart seen such domination. No, we're not talking about One Direction, Fifth Harmony or any of the other groups put together by Simon Cowell that have seemingly leaped from the X Factor stage to world-wide stardom. Where actually talking about smartphones here. More precisely, we are looking at the way that the Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c have commanded the smartphone sales charts in Japan...

Why offtopic again for? Answer the question sir. Don't call me a troll, when you are the troll...

I've read so many posts of yours. All you do is go off topic and calling users troll. You never provide answers nor do you contrubute to a discussions. Or provide infos. You call your self a techy that buys whatever is good.

Typing from an iP5s 64Gb in all black edition. Keyboard error.

Where do you see me hating on Apple?
Where did I insult your purchase.... ?

Like I said before, you are not the smart one to dispute with. You are just a techy.

Ninetysix is a guy that likes to dispute.

Ok I see where you're going with this. You're looking for a debate, an argument, you want the last word and I'm gonna make sure you have it. Dude leave me alone, cuz I'm not gonna continue the back n forth with you, there will be no response to this post, or any other you come my way with. To deal with a stupid little childish troll like you, simply let you win, give you the last word, and ignore you. You win goodbye.

Japanese people are in general rational, reasonable, honest, and most above of all - trustworthy.

Unfortunately, I can't say the same about Chinese.

Remember the Chinese milk scandal back in 2008?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2008_Chinese_milk_scandal

I understand very well that some companies in an underdeveloped country do something shady for some extra profits, but something lethal like this is beyond anyone's imagination.

Even Ferengis wouldn't do things like this.

iPhones do well in countries like Japan and the US, where disposable income is common, and it's been a short time since they were released so there's no surprises with this. What is a surprise is Japan's own phones aren't doing better, Sony is barely noticeable. Seems like national brand loyalty for Japan isn't like it is in China as a comparison, where their own self made phones dominate the charts. Interesting cultural perspective.

Forget about Sony, but the bigger dog - Samsung - is barely up there in terms of specific phones bought like the gs4, gs3, ip5, ip5s, etc.

In relationship of Japanese people, yes, you can forget about Samsung and not Sony. Cultural dislike is too great for that country, your point only applies to the rest of the world, which wasn't represented by this top 20 list.

Learn some history before making such a comment.

Sony could abandon the phone business anytime, just like Panasonic did.

PBXtech, Long its ok. Apple is a necessary evil that provide the needed competitor to Android.

Apple give incentive to Google and other Android OEMs to improve and stay competitives.

I wouldn't be buying anything Apple but other suckers are free to do so. LOL!
