Teens: Apple iPhone out, Samsung Galaxy S III and Microsoft Surface in

0. phoneArena 13 Jan 2013, 00:16 posted on

It looks like Apple could be losing support of the teens as they have started to turn away from the Apple iPhone and have started to favor the Samsung Galaxy S III and Microsoft Surface Tabletsa; according to a survey done by Bus Marketing, Apple might have been too successful for its own good as teens say the ubiquitious nature of the iPhone is pushing counterculture supporting teens away from Apple's iconic smartphone and is pushing them toward the Samsung Galaxy S III...

Ha! Retina is out of date in the new era of 4K (aka "Ultra HD"). Mac doesn't even offer touchscreens, and probably won't until next year. Typical apple, months and years behind everyone else.

I don't think we will see many 4k monitors/laptops for awhile.

I guess thats the problem. Teens are seeing the Iphone as too popular. Meaning everyone has an iphone. Thats not cool. Why would I have the same phone everybody has. Teens will seej something different in order to stand out. Iphone isnt a bad phone but isnt worthy. Same old

No thunderbolt I can see where he's coming from. I dirve county transit here n vegas, and as a techie I'm constantly looking to see what devices people r carrying. I honestly see more teens with iPhones, and next r galaxies...now here's the kicker, when I ask them how they like their iPhone most say its ok, but I want the s3, or the big one (the note).

No actually...over half of the teens I know own iPhones. That is just a simple fact in our lives. The fact that you don't like Apple doesn't mean you need to downvote someone simply because he is stating what he sees around him. He probably hangs around different people than you, and so they have different phones. To say that he is blind because of that is just rude. Keep your super biased comments and rates to yourself and just look at things objectively for a change, or are you too obsessed with Google to be able to do that?

Actually so do I. Followed by galaxy s3's. I see only young adults, and mature grown ups with notes.

of course you do. we're talking about every generation of iPhone against every one type of Android handset. i actually do see a lot of kids with Galaxy SIII's considering though.

you should see more teens with an iphone than any other cause for one they have like 6 different models plus they all look almost identical from a distance plus the 3g's 4 and 4's are all dirt cheap so it makes sense.....

well for this year and probably through next year too 4K Televisions are surely going to be ridiculously expensive whenever we even get them in the consumer marketplace and look at how expensive the Retina Macbook is now and it's display is of course within Retina territory meaning it's as sharp as your eyes can possibly perceive it. the common consumer wouldn't bother even IF they were anywhere near having it for us in something like a Macbook. it would just be too expensive, impractical and too power consuming. i wouldn't look for this on a Macbook next year let alone this year.

When will they be out?
How much will they cost?
iMac is the only desktop monitor with retina you can buy, hater

Retina is a meaningless term. Apple called the iPad 2 retina. Guess that makes the Nexus 10 ultra super mega retina.

Agreed. Its a marketing thing, which Apple does so well. They advertise the hell out of basic features that Android and other OSs have had for months and the average consumer things Apple came up with it first. Example: panorama shots. There a few devices that have better than "retina" display but it is the fault of the company pushing them to not market them heavily or find a catch term or phrase like Apple does. Like them or hate them they do market well...

i don't recall Apple ever calling the display of the iPad 2 Retina. Retina is a display philosophy by them and a damn good one too. i don't see Apple going back on it. o:
