They are not my android buds...I could care less about android or ios...I just purchase what I think fits my needs etc...I've owned both iphones and galaxy phones and the galaxy phoned fit my need more than the iphones. Mainly because I can't stand iTunes..as for some carriers etc discounting the s3..its only in the us ...and its usually places like amazon and best buy who are competing with the likes of Verizon and at&t..as for sprint they are dying so they will do anything to get customers...

i agree with you, $840 is too much for the 16gb version and the anticipation for the iphone 5 is also reducing the iphone sales in europe, after the iphone 5 releases, it will dominate the market once again and thats also a good time to get an android phone because the prices will be slashed after the iphone 5 releases

92% of a market share getting smaller and smaller everywhere except the US. The shift we've seen in store of iPhone users changing and upgrading to android is significant. Their are also are large percentage who would like to change from the iPhone larger due to the need for change from the same ui over and over however they have invested so much in apples locked down system with iTunes,apple propriety charger docks and car equipment that however as much as they desire to change they cannot as they cannot except losing so much of what they had to pay to use apples 'iPhone only' environment of software equipment and even chargers

What we have is choices. That's what iPhone users don't have. We also have access to the latest hardware (how's that 3g you got two years after the rest of us, now that we've been rocking LTE for nearly two years, you can hopefully have it this fall)

Yes, I'm sure those phones are all sitting in retailer shelves. You are wrong, as usual.

"Android is a cheaper product. That's just the way it is."

And in your opinion what is the reason that Android devices are cheaper than iPhone, talking about Galaxy S III, One X and other flagships ?

I cant speak for everyone but choices is not what attracts to Apple.. for me was the smooth OS. is well polish smooth and for me has been lag free something I didn't have in Android.. everyone of the 92% has their own reasons that's is mine

The real reason behind iPhone's increased market share in US is many more carriers sell it.

Android is winning even without the help of JB so we can see the iPhone downfall in the pipeline.

Will you admit how wrong you are when the iPhone 5 smashes sales records and brings ios market share to all time highs?

Weal wait and see, if it's the same design as the 4 it will be a fail, if it's different, await for the outcome!

I will admit that if JB phones cannot increase Android's market share everywhere.

It cant fail because its simply that.

Like the next Call of Duty game for example, there are little specifics known about it yet millions of people will/already have pre-ordered it. Then everyones gonna complain about the overpowered weapons and stuff like MW3, but it sells like millions and millions every year.

And Battlefield 3 didn't really win that much of the CoD fans either.

Nice troll attempt but no cigar. It's very telling that the iPhone is THE handest in business. About 70% market share.
