That's not too shocking given that android OS is not bound to one phone like iPhone. It gives users choices instead of being locked to one phone with the same specs as everyone else who also running that same OS. Also what is not too shocking is the price difference. Let's get real apple charges way too much for a phone that is nowhere near as powerful then most smartphones running a different OS. I'm not talking about that android OS, I'm talking about the hardware of the phone. That small thing that people often over look.

Keep your dalvik cache clean and it's the best OS

Apple shouldn't sell the iphone in China. Because nobody will buy the iphone for 2x the price of Chinese phone like Meizu, Xaomi, Oppo, Levono, ZTE, Huawei... not to mention a zillion knock off cheap brand phone. iPhone is dead in China.

Because 90% of brand chose android as their OS, that's only logical
