Apple iPhone 5s was the top selling smartphone in the U.S. last month

0. phoneArena 05 Oct 2013, 12:09 posted on

For those who figured that the mid-range Apple iPhone 5c would cannibalize sales of the Apple iPhone 5s, guess again; the new full-featured version of the iPhone managed to lead all four major U.S. carriers in smartphone sales for the month of September even though the phone didn't launch until September 20th. Over the opening weekend, Apple said it sold 9 million units of the two new iPhone iterations...

"Let see"??? Actually it's, let's (let us) see, married but chick looks like a dude and, if you're still calling her a chick, go back to the hen house and get your money back. 17 years driving at 10 mph and asking people, "would you likes' a transfer?" You're not "fit", you're thick and retaining water like a pregnant whale. Somebody lied to you when they told you you's handsome cuz' you look like Wanda from In Living Color (without the wig). The only saving grace is your son; hope he doesn't follow in your footsteps cuz' 'a mind is a terrible thing to waste'!!

Finally, I've broken through. Listen, I don't rag on ugly people, I only rag on ugly people who say they're pretty. And, as for Homie the Clown, "homey don't play dat'!!"

My favorite was Ms. Bonita - go Youtube her (aka Kim Wayans).

P.S. Homey was 2nd or 3rd or 4th Seasons, after that the show got vanilla.

Lmfao Papinyc®
That's what he does with every Apple user, tries to incline with them. For God sake Dark you have a wife! This is not a dating website... Take control of tour self Dark! Yes Biophone is another if an Apple user! Surely Dark is trying to be friends with iFans in here. I remember he was getting close with Lyndon420, but he called him burnet toast, he was in the oven for to long that was funny though. Now their kinda OK, get along. But he's having a beef with PhoneArenaUser now. I wonder whose next or gonna be his friend, I mean iFriend™

Can you point shoot and send a vid, by say mms? Without having to select limit for mms first, I hate that about the galaxy phones. I also own a note 2. Lack of auto edit/auto compression of videos is a pain.

What i dont like and if someone can help, ive been taking 3 to 5 minutes videos my girls but i cant send them as mms it says size limit exceeded. On my iphone i could send them with no issues. Like i said before its my first android so dont know how to send the whole video. Any help would be cool.

iPhones resize videos in MMS, it's the only good thing they do. Androids do not.

118. PAPINYC (Posts: 2237; Member since: 30 Jul 2011)


Kind of, VideoTrim or something like that?? Or, just send the video in an email (that should give you a 10mb to 20mb maximum limit depending on the client); I always do since I have Unlimited Data.

They're might be other apps' in the Play Store - just Google Video resize app for mms (or something like that) and something should come up.

Android phones don't auto compress vid files, as PAPINYC said. You'll have to go into camera settings and manually select limit for mms. Your vids won't be longer than a minute, and will be grainy but they'll send.

See, again: R.I.F. (Reading Is Fundamental). I said iPhones resize video in MMS (Post #116). That's okay, I know you're busy making sure you don't run over any little old ladies.

Your story of going from an iPhone 5 to an HTC One to a G2 in one year sounds unrealistic.

Work phone HTC one. Personal phone LG G2. Not everybody works at MCDonald's bro. I can buy and expense work related items. I used to have my work phone as my personal, but when i heard all that iOS was doing i decided not to update or buy the new 5s. Sold my 5 bought my G2. Work line was due for an upgrade, had a choice between HTC one, Samsung s4, NOKIA 928 so i took the HTC ONE in blue from bestbuy and work paid me back $100 that i spent on the upgrade.

Congrats apple/iPhone. We all know that only 3 phones matter, iPhones notes, and s4's. The rest just fill in the pie.

Wasn't there an article by phone arena saying apple twisted those numbers around by including vendors as part as sales? I still don't get it y people like apple so much Ur not getting anything better in the camera department, battery department, or screen so y upgrade (if u want to call it an upgrade) to the 5s?

posted on 05 Oct 2013, 13:46

30. techaman (unregistered)


it is an upgrade they have a finger print scanner thats been out for over 10 years and bypassed many years ago thats why no one uses it for security without also having rental or pin combo with it.
Yes they where including the restock amount and the broken replacements and the 30 day test units.
its funny that if its doing so well why is the 5c on sale for $49 at walmart and $50 at bestbuy after 3 weeks of being released, thats bad. i will wait to see what the gs5 will be like. or just stay on my gs3 i got 2 gig ram and 4.3 os and 4.4kitkat next year and can add galaxy gear with the os update. whats everyones thoughts.

Nah! Not falling for this old school HYPE of Tim Cook and Its Company. They've been doing this since iPhone 3GS, UNTIL iPhone 5. First, I bought i Had iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, 4S and iPhone 5. My fault that I considered this HYPE of APPLE and iFans. I was fooled on their last smart phones specially the i5. Nothing is New on this 5S, APPLE Lately has been upgrading what Steve Jobs Started, they're are not innovating as compare before. Sorry Apple. Still getting the Note 3 and Smart watch!

note 3 is ok not for me i did see a video that samsung put a setting to make the screen smaller for some things or all and you activate it with a swipe and can be change left side or right with the arrow kind of neat but still dont like the body of the phone me personally

I'm sorry I missed it. Where was the part with the proof that Apple was the top selling smartphone?

"Apple said it sold 9 million units"

Not proof. Rememember in Kindergarten we played a game called show and tell. Let's play the opposite. Tell.....and SHOW.

Of course it was top selling. Nothing really else out there released at the same time. But even with that said, the numbers are pretty impressive.
