Its not the number of phones that matter.. Its profit. profit. profit.
Samsung, apple, sony and LG are unsinkable ships.. because they don't sell only phones unlike other company.

With phones like this https://twitter.com/Androidheadline/status/10351­38618526814208 they may stay ahead of apple

xyrotic, 29 Aug 2018Then just get a feature phone . Why you get iPhone se?Reasons for getting iPhone SE were simple:
1. You currently won't find better phone in that price range.
2. I really like compact phones.
3. I need something that just works, and iPhone simply does that. I use 3 apps respecivley, Whatsapp, Snapchat and Instagram. Since I removed Facebook...
4. It is reliable, doesn't lag or crash apps, and you have a good software support.

Their processors (which I suspect you are referring to) may have high benchmarks, but time has proven that this does not lead to faster phones, but does lead to massive problems with throttling and battery life. Even current iPhones are behind older Android phones, significantly so in most cases.

And yes, hating apple makes you popular on this site, even if the arguments used are just plain stupid.

Anonymous, 29 Aug 2018haha..... This is the biggest joke I've ever heard. Huawei mate ... morewhat a bunch of bull. Less than 5 years ago, all of you didn't even give 2 craps about huawei, almost everyone outside of China was making fun of them; weird funny name, cheap china trash, communist sponsored company, a giant crony etc etc. I can go on and on and these comments were made by android fanboys themselves.

Now, Huawei is successful and you guys worship the dirt they walk? As if. Android fanboys are a bunch of sad hypocrites supporting anything just to feel more superior than Apple (yet Apple is still making money hahahah)

Remember folks competition is good for consumers. Even if you hate Apple you dont want them to wither and die because they keep every other phone manufacturer on their toes. Also the same if you hate the massive success of the chinese phones again it keeps others coming up with new ideas.
There is no finishing line or winner, its about companys making money. So to hate another brand is pointless. as fun as it maybe to slag it off.

Old iPhones are spec-vise better than anything mid-range Androids can offer. I won't even go into software support...

I only use: Snapchat, Whatsapp and Instagram besides my email for work.

Even flagship Androids lagged on those simple apps. And "outdated" iPhones are handling everything without an issue.

Example: the iPhone SE is currently fastest thing that you can buy for 300 Euros. And it will have software support for next 3 years. Now compare that to any Android in that price range. So I simply want something that works.

I bought a placeholder phone. My M10 6gb LCD was stolen.So I purchased an M10 Pro to hold me over till the Mate 20s show up.

People are waiting for the big screen X+ meanwhile everyone is abandoning Samsung because no Android phone should be above $700

People are getting smarter than before and know that Apple collects parts from different companies and assemble in cheap price, around $250,and sells in around $1000/ on the other hand Huawei sells very excellent phone in reasonable price . Go ahead Huawei!

Apple veblen effect is dying. People still want cheap phone no matter what. Kudos cheap brands.

apple offers a whoppin $550 repair for the back of this $1000 phone. hm.

DD, 29 Aug 2018Because china's population alone is 10x bigger than US.they even sold more smartphones here in europe. In my oppinion their devices are really attractive but without bootloader unlock I don't consider buying a Honor/Huawei.
