One thing that I did get was that you are saying GSMA are siding with Apple for the way they do their stories when in truth the majority of people that come on this site are Samsung Fandroids! Always hating on Apple, no matter who the story is geared towards, & sticking up for Samsung! So I do not think that this is site that is geared towards Apple at all.

@gsna.
"Now don't gt us wrong".No fear of that. In a massively negative position you go on writing a neutralising apologetic for apple ,for paragraphs. ""To be fair" "just to reiterate" "shiny apple watch...MIGHT be on many.... which SHOULD " "last but not least".
We asked you to be FAIR when we came on this site for unbiast comment, just will you REITERATE thiss again an again on every apple story the way yoe do onevey Samsung story, the note 7's sabotaging. LAST BUT NOT LEAST you positively add in figures that do not exist and only MIGHT or SHOULD help em a little bit in their embarrasing losses, who paid you to fabricate this stuff, lemme see was it...when they go diwn, I hope they take you and your crew with them, this is Hillary tackle.

Hahaha. All you Fandroids saying that Apple is going to be the next Nokia or Blackberry is laughable!!! Nokia & Blackberry made really, REALLY bad phones, thats why they 'failed'. I honestly do not think the lack of headphone jack is the reason either. Smartphone sales in general are down as there is not much difference between last years flagship handsets & this years. Reports state that it seems to be next year where all manufactures will pull out the big guns, maybe because they know that Apple will have something special up their sleeves for the iPhone 8 (10, X, 7s, The New iPhone, whatever they call it) next year. Samsung also need a big year due to the Note 7. You can not deny that it will hurt the brand in some way. Also, the fact that there are still people that pre ordered the iPhone 7/7+ & they still do not have them is going to affect sales. I know of around 30 people that have gone to Android purely because they didnt want to wait for handset any longer. I also know of around 20/30 people that dumped Samsung due to the Note 7 & went with a different Android handset or an iPhone so it works both ways. Whatever the factor for the slump is I can honestly say that Apple will not do a Nokia or a Blackberry & really struggle to make an impact on the market.

The 2 year old phone still has better sound during a call and better battery life. It is also faster in everyday use than the Samsung with a monster processor. Samsung is not the problem, Android is.

Jarret, 27 Oct 2016Samsung will strikes Apple again to next year with Galaxy S8 aft... moreYou wanted to say that it will strike back against its buyers, like Note 7 did. If the Samsung phones are still bought after this bullcrap, I believe people are really stupid or brainwashed as a matter of fact. This goes for the Apple buyers also.

Sales may be down because they aren't producing the iPhone's in quantities to meet the demand. I know people are waiting for iPhone 7Plus, and have been for over a month or two now. And that isn't taking into consideration the wait times to get the glossy black variant.

So really, it isn't the consumers who aren't buying, it's Apple who isn't scaling their production to meet demand.

Samsung will strikes Apple again to next year with Galaxy S8 after the Note7 failure in 2016

  • Steve Jobs says

Apple hasn't been innovative since Steve Job's death. It is clear Apple is, and has always been Steve Jobs. Without him, apple is just another company and making things worse, they are starting to show stagnancy.

Customers are getting smarter. No reason to change phone every year.

I don't think they're gonna have good holiday sales. Anyone who wanted the 7 or 7 Plus had already traded in their 6 or 6s from those carrier deals already.

Those giving comments do realize that 3rd quarter ends in September before the release of the iphone 7 in most stores.
