it's very funny to see how much android users trying to put these numbers down. they just can't accept these. Seriously how anyone could have expected anything else with the line-up Apple currently have?

What's even funnier is that you yourself get so worked up over how these phones are selling. Out of your 403 posts, 98% of them have to do with iPhone X sales.

Well screen to body ratio is for sure on Sammys side, but the optical illusion of bezel less is on iphone side.

A 17% rise you say?! Oh my, I suppose this should soon be validated with a following report that others experienced a significantly equivalent drop, yes? Otherwise... Alan, you gots some 'splainin' to do... Without that I can see only 3 scenarios: 1. People are double-fisting handsets holding multiple devices. (Which is really an option where everyone wins.) 2. Apple did in fact experience a super-cycle where customers holding on to older handsets did finally upgrade to an 8, 8+, or X. (Although analysts have disagreed with that happening based on supplier orders.) 3. This article is FUD. (Is that what the "F." stands for Alan?)
