Apple still the most popular smartphone maker in the U.S, Android the top platform

There are multiple ways to measure market share. Some outlets measure advertising impressions, or from surveys, which are not the most accurate measures. Some measure device shipments or sales, which is better, but sales figures can be hard to come by. And, some measure by extrapolating from data gathered by a huge network of tracking software.

Everyone ignore the baiting, make him waste his pretend popcorn (and possibly his evening since that is all he does).

I think you've confused something funny with something that isn't actually funny at all

Dunno what's wrong with these kind arguments. I think Apple vs Android argument is kinda old nowadays. We all know that android is better right?

U.S yes :p. I'm not denying that apple is a good smartphone maker but i've been traveling alot and as far as i've seen i'd say they don't have that huge margins in Europe :p.

Wp8.1 has not even past Androids Eclair 2.1 in features.

Android and iOS leads while BB and WP follows. Better phones are always from Android, and it's has come to a stage that Android can ease while others catch up.

Android has over 90% share in Spain. And in Italy, Android has 70% while WP passed iOS in Q3 2013.

Apples business model isn't market share, it's profit margin, which they lead in. Post those numbers bro.

You sound proud they overcharge you for their phones. Both Apple and Samsung charge too much, and HTC isn't much behind them either.
