Apple executive Schiller attacks Android
According to Schiller, the Android service suffers because of the way that different elements of it come from different companies. "When you take an Android device out of the box, you have to sign up to nine accounts with different vendors to get the experience iOS comes with," the executive said. "They don't work seamlessly together." The Apple marketing executive put down the entire Android platform when he said, "Android is often given a (sic) free replacement for a feature phone and the experience isn't as good as an iPhone." And turning to the Samsung Galaxy S 4 specifically, Schiller said that it will launch with a year old OS (Android 4.1) that will need to be updated.
Derspite Schiller's comments, the latest data from Gartner shows that the Apple iPhone owns 19.1% of Global smartphone sales compared to 66.4% for Android.
