Tbh this is quite the normal outside of the US.I see the galaxy s3 outsell the iphone 3:1 on a daily basis. If you included Htc handset sales as well as sony etc then The ios handsets are only making a small fraction of sales figures week in week out. The apple induced slumber is gone and most customers have seen the poor effort apple has produced year in year out. In my store the iphone sold out first 2 deliveries,now it never does and are quite slow by apple standards for selling at all.
Unfortunately for the US,ifans are still drooling cash without any common sense and Apple has the patent system caught by the groin

Andro, I'm always struck by how misinformed many iOS users are about a feature/app on the iPhone that they believe exclusive, or how a perception exists that it's the easiest smartphone to learn (I think WP is easier for first-timer).
I think advertising is the cause. Apple advertises a "gee-whiz" feature, which generates excitement. Samsung has learned this lesson, too, which helped. After that, it's the carriers like Verizon, who seems clueless (how does battling a futuristic robot make your want a new Android, Verizon?).
Do you see something similar in the UK?

Samsung outspends every handset OEM in marketing/advertising. So I guess it is just marketing to dumb S-Sheep that accounts for any Samsung success?

Yep, and its just getting started. The S3 was introduced to a bunch of new users who used to be iphone users. Now those people will wait for the S4, S5 or something else but not iphone.

Aww did little ole 6 ft 25 year old who doesnt live in a basement hurt your feelings! ;) god its people like you that give me so much joy in my life to simply laugh at! you remind me of the bullies in high school that I used to slap around when I hit my growth spurt. Like I said before, go back to school and learn to form a correct understandable sentence, and THEN come back and make all the comments you want. At least let me understand the trash your talking ;)
And dont use your device as an excuse for lacking basic intelligence.

Lol.. Guess the herd has been enlightened! :D
6. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
so when they bought iphones there following the crowd etc, when they buy the s3 there enlightened....
why is it
1. when the iphone was leading in sales its becuase people are stupid but when the s3 leads in sales this isnt the same case?
2. does this know mean sales matter as for many months many have ranted that sales dont mean anything. guessing now its in favor of samsung/android they suddenly mean everything right?

We are in era of multi user accounts, widgets, photo sphere...... iPhone has still icons....
12. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
lmao that it widget, and multi user acconts....photosphere is a gimmick. it wont be widely used yet just like panarama isnt used as much as the standard shot
second so what the iphone has icons some people are ok with that . wp8 has live tiles in my opinion so much better then widgets...sure you wiill jump up and down on that one lol
and we are actually in the era of fanboys like yourself who attack other peoples choices
19. darac (Posts: 2156; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
Well well, look who's showing to bash on Android just because people aren't buying the far inferior WP instead!
You really are a hypocrite.
Can you even formulate how on earth are live tiles better than widgets? And that's actually the only thing resembling an argument you could came up in favor of WP..it's ridiculous to even compare them.
21. darac (Posts: 2156; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
Here, a little something for your amusement.
Btw I'm using the best of all, Ocean HD wallpaper (not mentioned here)
23. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
haha lmao you forget mate i dont think sales means im a winner like you lot who believe your tied into the android world
second i put
''wp8 has live tiles in my opinion so much better then widgets''
you notice how i put my opinion as everyone prefers differant things so you saying im not entitled to my opinion and you call me a hypocrite. admit it your just another android fanboy ive seen so many and your one of the worst as youtry to act reasonable only when its in favor of android anyone says anything against and look at you, defensive and shameless
i wish i could meet you in real life, because like alll fanboys your up on it over the internet but in reality please your just some kid
32. darac (Posts: 2156; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
And you are showing up as a WP fanboy of the worst kind.. anyway a typical fanboy is the one who can't back up his opinion.
That's why I asked you to back yours up,..and you failed of course.
I can, and will back up every single pro-android statement I make.
That's the difference between you and me genius.

live tiles are pretty cool but i still prefer Android
20. anywherehome (Posts: 971; Member since: 13 Dec 2011)
No, my iFriend..... you have just icons....... iOS is an inferior product, deal with that...
We use these features ;-)
And WP tiles is the same like widgets =just place for icons or widgets..... are you able to see that?
But WP no one wants, sadly
25. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
yes thankyou proved my point beautifully, your classing me as an apple fanboy, then another android fanboy has called me a wp fanboy, contredict each other much lol been called an android fanboy, a nokia fanboy and a google hater too...any others i aint been called? your failing at trying to label me. face fact you are so biased its sad.
wp no one wants .........hmm yeah i know alot that want the 920 so thats bs right there just like i know afew who want the note 2.....im happy though as unlike you i can enjoy whatever i like or fancy buying....i aint stuck in one camp like you arrogant lot
tech lover= someone who enjoys all tech whatever the brand, someone who dont act superior through there personal choice
you lot all fail at that
