Absolutely true: in third-world markets where edjumacation' is lacking and they have NOTHING, they will take anything; desperation is the key to human evolution and out of desperation comes necessity, and, out of necessity, invention or, in this case, substandars adoption.

Apple is probably gonna open up a iHospital in these third world or emerging markets... Cost of a iphone C will cost a liver... Cost of a iphone S will cost an arm and a leg... 3 Apps for a pint of blood, and so on and so forth. Hahaha, cause the prices are so high. (T.T)

Not surprising, apple rocks. You'll usually see apple 1 Samsung 2, or Samsung 1, and apple 2. The jedii says apple 1, Samsung 2 and that's that. Don't make jedii angry, you wouldn't like jedii when jedii's angry lol.

People are so easy to jump just because some people like apple you think they are uneducated. So, can we call people who like android cheap variants poor and pathetic? It's a matter of personal preference! Gawd!

This makes a lot of sense because most emerging countries are way behind the times. They wear MC Hammer pants and still think the iPhone is good...so sad! :(

iPhone is also in the lead here in the US. Tell me which country you're from and we'll send a few of our warships since we're behind in times :)

Android fanboys are like the damn zombies on The Walking Dead. These guys walk around and the moment something comes along you guys dive into each and every post on here and devour it up. Apple can not and will not shine with you guys around I see. Where is Rick when I need him to stab you brain dead numskulls in the head?

These emerging market people still dont know the flaws of ios. Its 'decent' hardware i agree, but they dont know that filling that storage needs itunes, no bluetooth transfering(they use this a lot), no micro SD card slot, icloud and all. All these limitations just not suitable for third world countries. These people are fools thinking that more expensive means better.
