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...

Go away loser. I no longer wish to be bothered with you. You're not worth the time. You've run your course with me, like an old video game, or pair of shoes. No need for me to even respond to you anymore. GOODBYE!!!

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?

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

You are right: Note 3 is not a phone, it is a tablet.

Wow, I find it funny fandroids don't even consider apple products users human beings anymore. It's that extreme? Iphone users gotta be careful not to show their phones in public.

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.

Whatever,just enjoy what you have. I use Android and the iPhone 5 and freaking love them both. Feels like wearing new clothes every week.
In the meantime I will keep reading the smartphone wars around here.

The bickering on this site is sad and immature. .....Why would you argue so much and get personal about things that dont even relate to what the article says. The moderators of this site should be ashamed of themselves.

Boy...the hatred is criminal from phandroids. Sad really. Every year there is the denial about new iPhone sales & every year iPhone beats their previous year's numbers. Y'all not tired of being wrong yet?

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.
