If Android is so great, why are people leaving it droves for iOS?
>"We're seeing a higher rate of people switching to iPhone than we've experienced in previous cycles, and we're off to an exciting start to the June quarter with the launch of Apple Watch," he added.
More people than they were expecting... is Android dying?
you do know that jailbreaking is literally people taking advantage of bugs in the software to install their own shit right?
I mean there are so many bugs that every fucking version of iOS has been jailbroken sans whatever came out in the past month or something, and that's just a matter of time
>I saw something I don't agree with even though it's the reality
>better close the thread because my butthurt might flare up again.
Apple bullshitting aside, the data doesn't support that
We'll see how the stats look next quarter but
>CEO says his company is doing really well
Is not really good data to be pulling conclusions from.
not at all what I was going at, just saying that yes, the software has bugs, they do exist and jailbreaking is proof of it
android has bugs too which is part of the reason most rooting methods work
are you saying they made up the numbers? are you also saying that the $200 BILLION that they're using to repurchase stock is bogus? are you a slow adult or something?
Since this is /g/, what are the technical arguments to Android vs iOS? Not phone vs phone.
Android utilizes java, better than Oracle's implantation but still shitty.
iOS is all native objective-c, provides much better performance.
Android is open source, ish while iOS is proprietary.
iOS is correctly ported to devices, has solid support, well tested timely updates.
Android has shipped major versions with bugs, it has a shitty HAL, that people don't know how to port or support and delayed or denies updates.

>are you also saying that the $200 BILLION that they're using to repurchase stock is bogus?
Nigga interest is low as fuck for them, they just need to get a loan to buy their shares back, which is what multinationals usually do but you're an illiterate so you don't know that.
>being this financially illiterate
if you're underage, all is forgiven. if not, you're a retard.
wow just wow, at least reply with an argument macshill
IOS has no filesystem, at least not the users. But Android is trying to get rid of it, and not doing it well. Silos are currently the better option but are taken too far in iOS, apps need to be able to communicate with intents like in Android
Yes, I know that the Wiis' operating system is also called ios, Cisco routers run IOS and iPhones run iOS.
Do you know your just being another dick on the Internet, just the auto capitalize go.
It's great for people who can use it properly. Not really a surprise nannies and moms are trashing their old low-end LG phones for an iPhone.
If you do any serious stuff on your phone you'd want an Android though.
Sorry forgot my pic, what I meant by the data is this. People aren't flocking to apple in droves or anything. We'll see how the next quarter looks though
you mean why are americans so rich. apple isn't trying to sell iphones to poor people, they're trying to sell phones to rich people, and there are a lot of rich people in the us. looking at the android majority global market share as a sign that apple is losing is a wrongful observation.
Gay people made Android. Deal with it, homophobe.
The maker of that comic must really not go out much if he thinks that only neckbeards bought a note. Besides woman, I've only seen business men use them or people who simply had very large hands, but never once some cliche neckbeard.
gay people made android. they also use it. so android is UBER gay. deal with it.
ps: did you get this t-shirt with your android phone? if not, complain to google and ask them for one.
No time to care about what color someone's text is when you could be working instead
We use our smartphones during work too.
I doubt it. google employs more gay people and they push for gay rights hard.
>Google pushes for gay rights with 'Legalize Love' campaign
anyway, you're a homophobe who shills or a gay-made phone. how you can live with these contradictions if beyond me... you must have low IQ.
This. What apple has done so far is nothing short of brilliant. While I'm not a fan of their products, they've done a killer job at reinventing themselves--now selling status and class more than they are selling tech. Yes, the tech works well and they're beautiful and elegant, but they're no better than what else is in the market.
Android may be the better option because it allows you to truly own the device among another host of reasons, but the common girl or guy doesn't see that. They just want a phone that they can pick up and run with, and to say "I got an iphone."
Please inform me what
>serious stuff you're talking about?
I've had a whole bunch of phones. Motorola milestone 2, htc sensation, htc hd7, htc one x, iphone 4s, htc one x international, nexus 4, galaxy s4, another iphpne 4s, iphone 5, galaxy note 3 and an iphpne 6 plus.
My conclusion is iOS is better. Before you ask. Every device I've had has been rooted or jailbroken.
that's on official Android channel??? KEK'D FUCKING HARD!
>everybody uses whatsapp
majority of Whatsapp's users are using J2ME app which means they're on dumb phones.
iMessage is still hip with young.
It's following directly in line with how the economy is failing because we have no local workforce that's capable of thinking for themselves, a american population of SJW women and effeminate men ruled by them, outsourcing our workforce to retarded but more capable foreigners that'll work for less than half the wage.
This is not Apple's success, but America's failure.
>iOS losing marketshare to Android
>ONLY RICH PEOPLE GET IOS AND THERE ARE LESS RICH PEOPLE SO OBVIOUSLY HAVING LOWER MARKETSHARE IS A SIGN OF SUCCESS FOR IOS
>iOS gaining marketshare from Android
>THIS PROVES THAT IOS IS SUPERIOR AS MORE PEOPLE ARE SWITCHING FROM ANDROID THEREFORE HAVING A HIGHER MARKERSHARE IS CLEARLY A SIGN OF SUCCESS FOR IOS
I wonder what would happen if marketshare did not move?
>WITHOUT A DOUBT IOS USERS ARE SATISFIED AND DO NOT WANT TO CHANGE THEIR HABITS SO HAVING A STABLE MARKETSHARE IS DEFINITELY A SIGN OF SUCCESS FOR IOS
The iCultists have it all figured out, folks.
But wealthy people predominantly choose iPhone.
> Android Is For Poor People: Maps - Business Insider
>A new Pew study says the majority of Americans now own smartphones and the majority of rich, educated adults own iPhones.
>Surprise; Apple's iPhones Are Expensive So Rich People Are More Likely To Have Them
You can tell where the rich people are in the city by looking at iPhone distribution. Yes, really.
I won't lie, I'm getting fed up with android.
I'm tired of the lack of quality with devices and the almost ubiquitous drop of microSD slots the sole reason I went android from the get go.
My nexus 5 is the most janky POS device I've yet owned, the wifi still hasnt been fixed, the gps is a joke and battery gets worse with each update
>Looking at that map it seems that blackberries are used by even wealthier people.
BB is kill. Few zombies still use it who are afraid to upgrade. But they'll give in as well and become iphone users.
>is Android dying?
Google is trying to separate itself from it, developers hate it, OEMs hate it and there are at least 3 decent contestants to take its place.
This is good news...
>We're seeing a higher rate of people switching to iPhone than we've experienced in previous cycles, and we're off to an exciting start to the June quarter with the launch of Apple Watch
Why would you believe anything a salesman would say?
