Just look at this video, Samsung Galaxy S3 is the best selling Smartphone in the World and also rated the best #1 Smartphone ever. Apple's Iphone brings in 75% of total revenue, in the past, they better come out with Iphone 6 fast because Apple users are running to Android in droves.
Motorola once sold over 125 Million phones per quarter, Nokia once sold over 125 Million phones per quarter, Research In Motion once sold over 50 Million phones per quarter, Apple once sold over 75 Million phones per quarter. Product cycles have hit every large company, the Iphone 5 is the end of their product cycle, it is now obsolete.
Nokia and Research In Motion are starting a new product cycle, how high will they go this time?
For all you guys, please get a Samsung Galaxy S3 and I5, Use and rate yourself.
I did. I junked my 4 weeks new Samsung and go back I5.
Here are points to rate:
1) battery life
2) easy to use, migratgion and setup
3) compare Kies to Itunes interface
4) graphic display (Personalley I think S3 is too dark for a particular reason...you go figure), pay attention to emails (background color)
5) free apps from Android vs IOS
6) Price difference
Come back have your input, just don't read these so called "expert" reports. To buy and use a product is very dictated to personal preference and individual condition.
Samsung's top quality parts made the Iphone great, now Apple will replace them with some third rate companies that can't even produce enough good parts to put on the market.
Samsung rules the smartphone market and Iphone 5 does not even come close to the technology in the Galaxy 3.
Agreed, the Android world got the better smartphones and tablets. Android matched and surpassed Apple on apps as well. There's no reason to buy a technological inferior and over-over-priced Apple device. Samsungs devices are cheaper, cooler, smarter and 1000x better.
I don't know where people get their facts. NONE of the companies you mentioned (including Apple) sold that many phones in a single quarter. Also, I can show you hundreds of sites comparing the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S3 where the iPhone 5 is rated higher (as well as the S3 being better on other sites). And finally, the iPhone 5 has already passed the S3 in worldwide sales, but it is not official until Apple releases its numbers. Samsung has sold somewhere in the neighborhood of 30 million S3 phones for the entire year. Apple is expected to beat that number in this quarter alone.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Just remember, when Cook released numbers for Iphone sales Christmas quarter last year, he said Apple sold 45 Million phones. The truth came out over a month later, they sold only 36 Million. Apple moved up over $100 per share on misinformation.
Most Apple pump sites, over 100, said the Iphone 5 was the best phone before one was ever sold. Those pump sites said Apple Maps was a great product, no truth there.
Funny, wife just looked into the Samsung vs iphone for her next upgrade. She said no battery life, cheap plastic, no apps and a few other things, and then said why would anyone want a galaxy vs an iphone for just a few bucks when they are crap. True story and made me laugh.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Good luck with that one, I sent that YouTube Video, 50 Reasons why Samsung Galaxy 3 is better than the Iphone 5. I want to see if they still think Apple stock will go back to $700. Where did they get their information that Android customers are moving to Iphone 5 ??? It's time they start telling the truth, Android now has 75% of the World market, Apple is no longer growing.
