You're pathetic. You've waited 4 years for the phone that will beat the iPhone and it hasn't happened. Fanboys answer is always wait until phone xyz comes out.

You're the pathetic one. No one Android phone ever has to beat one iPhone model. And you treat sales figures as the determinant of quality. As in best seller=best quality. This dogma of yours belies an ignorance of capitalist history.

every damn android looks the same anyways, yeah they might change minor details, but for the most part, they're pretty much all the same, now yeah, the toyota metaphor might not be the way to go, were talking about smart phones, so thats like saying that the Corvette ZR-1, has outsold cars, thats a retarded statement, however, if you place it against a specific car in the same class, such as the Shelby GT-500KR, then you have more of a matchup, bottom line, the iPhone 4 will, alone, sell out ANY Android powered phone out there, no matter what you fandroids think or wanna believe

That's everyone's point bro, the iPhone will always outsell any phone, but that is only because if you want ios you only have one option to go to. If you want android you have about 30 options, equaling far less sales per phone, but more sales for the OS. Don't be an idiot.

I only see 1 idiot here, YOU! Android phones come out about 2 a month, new phones, with new names, with exactly the same crap the previous one had, very minor improvements, nothing big at all, if you want iOS at a cheaper price, you can get a 3Gs, they still have brand new ones at AT&T, you have 2 choices there, sure Android offers many different phones but the way I see it, theres 2 options, Android phones with a physical keyboard, or Android phones with a full touchscreen, theyre all the same though, they all have a back button, a home button, an enter button and a menu button. Honestly, all there is to it is that in the end, iPhone sells more than any other phone out there, hands down

lol you talk about phones not changing yet your phone has had the same look on its user interface for four years....

you said all phones are the same and android manufacturers make no changes to the interface yet compare the first scene UI with the current sense and all its gesture and ambient based options too, look How Samsung adds many improvements and features to the new touchwizz, Motorola and its new docking system and Sony Ericsson wit its Xperia Play all completely targeting different types of customers.

yes you are right you only two choices either keyboard or touchscreen, guess what, until someone creates a phone that uses air(as in oxygen) or your brain without a really weird cable or helmet manufacturers gonna have to stick with those two options

and you claim android buttons are the same? its the way to navigate thought the system you cant expect them to be changed drastically because it involves changing the way you navigate thought the system and thats not smart

Only thing i keep getting from this article and everyones comments is that apple users are dumber then we give them credit for. The point of OS against OS is if android only had one phone it would outsell the Iphone hands down. And if you think that every android phone is a like then no wonder you like the Iphone over any adroid. Have you ever read the stats do i really need to do a pros and cons list for you in how the android will crush a iphone. Even the windows phones are starting to do more then the Iphone. Thats do more not sell more. Honestly if iphone came out with more then one phone a year that did the minor upgrades i would respect the company more. Instead they take the cheap way out and force feed there fans garbage.

As far as all android are the same hmm. Some are 4g some are 3g one difference. Some have 256 ram some have over a gb of ram. Two diferences. Some are dual core some are single.3 Some are with keyboard some not. 4 some are small pocket size some are larger better screen size. 5 List goes on and on and on buddy if you really want me to put the stats of a avg android next to the top of the line iphone you will see the avg android is better quality. have fun with you iphone 5 when it comes out and your being fed lies from Jobs again/

Lol, that's fine if you like them, honestly they wouldn't outsell iPhones, the reason the phone sells so much is because of the "hype" and rep that the brand has built up over the years, thats the same reason a Chevy Cobalt sells more than a Pontiac G5, because Chevy has made a name for itself, and no, I won't be buying the iPhone 5 as it will feature very minor upgrades, instead, I wanna get the white iPhone 4 and wait for the 6 to come out, I am an Apple fan, I used to work for AppleCare, I have an iMac, MacBook Pro, iPad 2, have had iPhone 3G and 3Gs, and now have a iPhone 4, and I'm happy with em, have had Windows computers and many kinds of phones and I just like the whole sync-ability of the iProducts, I like that everything goes from one device to the other without much problems and the whole easy going flow of the phone itself. Of course, the iPhone is far from perfect, but at the moment, it does everything it does perfect and not half-assed, the way other manufacturers seem to do it, of course, it'll also have its mistakes, like any electronic, but at the moment, its the device I feel is perfect at what it does, and perfect for me lol, guess my username fits me huh?

Oh how people try so hard with their wordings to make Apple look superior.
If I were them, I'd just stick to bragging about profits because they don't really have much to brag about.
This just in, Samsung Galaxy S is outselling the 1st generation iPhone.

bossmt_2. Did you take math class? Why wouldn't a previously retail value of over $600.00 iphone 3gs now going for $49.00 outsell a $200.00 android. It's 49.00 now because apple decides to make the iphone 4, that is basically the same phone as the 3gs, still with no flash, and the same user interface since 2007. The buyers are the fanboys who will always follow the iphone not matter what. It's the only interface they know how to use. I was reading one article where the guy bought an android and returned because he said it was too hard to use, and went back to his iphone.

The retail is not $50. That's the two year upgrade price.

Go buy a hybrid and pay the higher purchase cost and higher insurance, Lower resale value if the economy recovers which Obama is milking from his investments in companies such as GE and the replacement batteries every 2-3 years for about $2000. The GE comment is about all the fake green jobs which if he keeps it up will turn us into Iceland... But Loony Libs don't know anything about economics!!! Most of the Dems are loons and Lawyers. Wait Obama had less experience than Sara... Then again it was about time be elected a BLACK man... I feel like the only black person to have voted with my brain and not for a man because he is black and that is "Racism"....

I had no idea that a Black man could be a racist and communist. Wait I'm a Black capitalist and Obama is a racist communist but then again... You probably are under educated or are over educated and never work in the real world while having to pay taxes.... Go back to mommy and daddy White boy and vote for another man because he is black too... It might be me... I'm a Conservative Democrat....

obamaalltheway... Obama is a coward too... Let's just say sorry to all the American haters... You need a back bone to run this country and that's why it's economy is going down fast because he doesn't have one... If I'm such a communist then why do I believe in private business and tax reduction and Obama believes in enlarging the government by having them do the hiring... You must be trying to get one of those new IRS jobs. LOL... His policies are holding black people back by telling black people that they don't have to work as hard as their white counter parts because of the color of their skim to get into college, employment(EEOC) and etc... Now that's the ugly truth....

The Republican Governor in 2004 really messed things up in MA with Romney Care... There taxes are skyrocketing... There is no forgiveness from idiots like Obama and Romney. The only thing I respect about Romney is he sits in coast on airplanes while Obama gets his feet massaged on Air Force One on my dollar....

Wowe. I think you need to take this someplace else. The "White boy" comment was way out of line and before you go there...yes I am African American, educated, worked in the real world, voted for Obama and sometimes hates some of the things he does but will vote for him again. So I'm pretty much someone you have already determined to hate. But we are just talking about phones here. Can we get back to that please?
