The Apple iPhone was the top selling tech product of 2017

The Apple iPhone also took home first place as the best selling tech device of 2016 with 211 million phones sold. GBH Insights analyst Daniel Ives says that the iPhone will successfully defend its crown again next year thanks to a huge number of current iPhone users that will be ready to upgrade in 2018. Also chipping in will be a new version of the 4-inch Apple iPhone SE. Additionally, analyst Patrick Moorhead of Moorhead Insights expects Apple to cut prices on non-iPhone X models. "Anything that doesn't have edge-to-edge display will go down in price," he said.
Amazon and Google went at it with their low-end smart speakers. The Amazon Echo Dot and the Google Home Mini were both discounted to $29.99 for the holiday shopping season. We recently told you that the Alexa app hit number one on the Apple App Store, indicating that the Echo smart speaker did very well during the holidays.

Lol so much for honesty. They should include all Galaxy products if they are lumping all the iPhones together. Then it would likely be second place though so the Apple fandom might have an aneurysm.

Seems to me you're the only one having an aneurysm at the moment...

what happened to Note 7 was a accident and a design flaw. whereas what apple did was that they intentionally cripple their old iphones to force naive sheep like you to buy new one every year. Which is unethical business practice.

I have the new IPhone program every year they don’t force me to get the latest, Apple got caught doing wrong and they gonna pay for it, Shamesung didn’t admitted how bad was the Note 7 until the US government force them to fix that mess so they recalled, refurbished and make stupid morons like you and teckie buy the same exploding garbage with a different serial number

I guess if you say something over and over again then it must be true whether you back it up with facts or not. There used to be a guy named Alikmalix that would come here every other day claiming all of his family's old iphones were still blazing fast and buttery smooth. Sorry bruh, but the era of the PA repetitive claim, personal testimonial, anecdote, pinkie swearing that something is true died 2 weeks ago. They days when you could just type nonsense with no basis in fact have been throttled.

Samsung phones are born slow, hence they don’t need to slow down https://youtu.be/3ajdZQc3q_8https://youtu.be/-pFpv0Im1UYhttps://youtu.be/l0-FdVPJt8ghttps://youtu.be/NBT8Ng4sj9Mhttps://youtu.be/vMiTOKKX7ekhttps://youtu.be/dJOWBUsEFfk

nope you are exaggerating and kidding, i had (and still have) my note 5 for 2 years now and the battery is 71% of the original capacity (as indicated by Accubattery app) yet it still performs the same out of the box before 2 years why ifans are trying to hide their shame by blaming others with false information? is it the only way you could come up with to evade the embarrassment ??

I get the feeling that it's meant to reinforce Apple zealots' thoughts on non-Apple products so that they can further evangelize using this commercial as material to work off of. Or it's meant to shame cheap spenders into buying the more expensive Apple product for fear of looking like a cheapskate loser, which is why I don't think they cast Brad Pitt as the duped consumer.
