The phone world is divided into two groups.

1. People who demand to have a say about what goes into their phone and want to be able to choose any damn app they wish.
2. Morons. AKA, iphone fans with too much money and very little common sense.

There used to be a third category for business people and the Blackberry, but that is quickly dying out.

Frankly, what this shows is that when people have a choice between a "free with contract" iPhone and a "free with contract" Android phone, they pick the iPhone.

In the past the only "free with contract" option has been Android.

People don't prefer Android.

They prefer "free".

I'm not a camera expert, but with a "camera" that light, won't the fact that one cannot possibly keep it steady after pushing the shutter button pretty much negate the impact of so many pixels?

The phone has an optical image stabilization system that should take care of most normal camera shaking from hand holding the phone.

As an iPhone "enthusiast", even I can see that the iPhone has peaked or will peak very soon. There's less and less headroom for market differentiation in the handset space every day. What kind of neat shiat are you going to make a phone do that it hasn't done before, or what is there left to improve? Apple will always have the edge in design, but that edge is getting thinner and thinner all the time. Eventually it will be too thin for most people to notice, as Android and the handsets that run it improve incrementally over years, with lots of free help from the Open Source community (an asset Apple can't leverage on iPhone for the most part).

That having been said, I probably won't switch to Android for my personal phone, as it doesn't offer anything I want, except for availability of apps that change the system features of the phone. If I wanted access to that functionality, I could always jailbreak my device, but I won't because a jailbroken iPhone is as unreliable as an Android device, for the same reasons as Android. I bought my phone specifically because of the curated walled garden, but I could see switching over to Android at some point, once the carrier bloatware, device fragmentation and junkware/malware problems have been sorted out.

gmoney101: Apple phones sell well for too reasons

One, they appeal to intelligent people  sheeple which is why they are so popular

Too, apple cares about its customers (HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA),

they are not a gigantic corporation like microsoft - no w-worth-more-than-all-of-microsoft/ Forbes begs to differ there

The only thing microsoft leads the world in is virus's

Go to hell microsfot
