Again, Market Share don’t mean anything, Toyota can have the most market share but Porsche take the lions share of profit, making them the most successful motor maker as they have greater margins.

Sad place we are living in.

More Android flagships (25-30% marketshare) over mediocre 10% marketshare of iPhone users.

Apple make more profit coz they charge more.
Device is as average as it gets. Any top Android flagship smokes the iPhone.

It would appear there are risks with updating
Even though my iPhone 5s has auto updates turned off, it still updated with problems. The latest update stopped my non iPhone approved clock radio charger from no longer charging my phone. Also some music seemed to have disappeared. After another long session on the phone , I finally had to do a complete reinstall with itunes. Still have issues. Left messages with Apple and no response . Also battery seems to discharge more quickly. Nasty
