More like Apple is ripping you off!

They don't provide Bluetooth, even cheap Nokia phones have them. Apple saved $$ not paying patent fees to that company.

Cheap glass was used on all Apple iPhones, where Android uses Gorrila glass. Apple saved $$

Giving a battery with 1400Mah, while Android devices had 2000+ Mah. Apple ripped the iFans again. Saved $$ again.

You see more iPhones with cracked screen, Apple charge you a bomb to replace it, while it costs them peaunuts to buy. Ripped you users again. Saved $$ again.

Yea thats why they can't afford to replace the crack screen on their iDevices.

Should I tell you more.....?

Yes please, we're totally enjoying hearing a out how you have absolutely no life, other than your hatred of apple. You're talking all this smack about apple, what are YOU doing? What are you designing, making, selling? What's your business' market cap, and current stock price? What are you the CEO of. As of yesterday apple crossed 500 billion in cash and capital, what've you crossed? My guess is you're a fat, young, nerdy, loner, who gets his a$$ kicked at school. Doesn't workout, isn't fit/attractive, has no girl, no life, sitting in your room in your parents home, that comes to this site for attention, and actually thinks these perfect strangers on here are his friends, cuz they lol, and green thumb you. Has no identity, and you are defined by your phone, and the OS you use. You take this far too serious, and do way too much research, do far too much trolling, and start way too much trouble with "only" iOS users too not be what I called you out as. This is clearly your life dude, this defines you, and it's a DAMN SHAME too, so yes "please tell us more" about you, cuz little do you realize you're sooo explaining to us who you really are by taking this so serious. The entire PA community is waiting with baited breath for you to "tell us more".

With no evidence... please PhonArena users are not that smart like Anandtech, GsmArena, Bgr users.

Go do some research on what Apples margin costs are, before calling me a troll.

You are the troll, not me....sir.

Then kindly head back to those sites, on this one you are a joke, and a troll. Learn to spell right, and post with relevance...not trouble making. Remember we will buy, and use what we want, regardless of what you say.

Kindly see post #85. Bans are permanent, once banned you don't come back. I'm love and use android, but prefer iOS to it. I keep it real, and am not here to start trouble, or disrespect people. I'm not a little childish lonely boy like you. Please go away.

Oh God no, you're so wrong on so many levels idk where to start...okay I just answer for the display for now. Saphire glass which will be used for iphones is costs more than gorilla glass's offering (lost my link to that one) You can look it up. Products like itunes have also done their fair share of doing away with piracy... that's a pretty long misinformed list right there I just don't have the time to go through all of it.

Remember androiphone, iPhones don't provide Bluetooth lol, even cheap Nokia's have them. Username has replaced "Troll" as PA's resident fool, providing absolutely (zero) intelligence to any article he posts on. Long1 will be here to defend him soon though...can't wait for his input.

Links to prove that or STFU. Then again, most people would just be happy if you chose STFU.

You have a long history of running down users of Android. Not sure if you have some inferiority complex going on or what, but you should get some help, it's not healthy to constantly look down on people just because they use a different operating system than yours.

There's a lotta iOS devices out there, to be able to do 82% of mobile shopping. I wonder how many used an iOS device, to shop for a new iOS device.

Some, to be sure. However, there were more and better deals on non-iOS devices, as there always are. There's a reason why Apple's worldwide marketshare is below 20 percent.

iPhone users purchased an iPhone, specifically.
Most Android phone users just purchased a phone, and it came with Android.

That's a huge difference.

Who cares about market share?

When Forbes lists Apple as the worlds most valuable AND respected/exalted company, they (the haters) do.

Well for one, no one said anything about who purchased what (people who read the article would know). Second, there is only iPhone for iOS people, so yea, your little quip makes 0 sense. The other crowd has a choice so yea they purchased a phone, but you know why it randomly didn't have iOS on it, because they chose Android and picked a phone from that system (unless you want to go with your analogy and they SPECIFICALLY didn't pick an iPhone).

Easily the iPad outnumbers all Android tablets in the ecosystem (and the article stated more shopping was done on tablets) so obviously more people would use iPads for it. Not to mention, that is perfectly fine because it can be used well for that function. Those people with an Android tablet used that, and that also worked out great for them I assume.

iPads take SIM cards, and use cellular data, and are very portable hence "mobile"

Who the hell does online shopping on their Android phone? We're too busy doing nandroid backups, flashing new ROMS (4.4 kitkat), and then restoring apps+data with TiBu. Gotta run those benchmark apps after as well (We're jelly of those iPhone 5S A7 SoC scores).

BRB...looks like iBastid released a new KangaKat 4.4 ROM today for my AT&T S4.
