It doesn't change that not only is floor a vastly superior musician....meanint voice, instruments, song writing, performing, etc... Compared to Taylor, but one of the most uniquely talented of them all period.

But Taylor is more popular and sold more albums.
And also will never be able to compare on Floors ability to use chest voice, mixed voice, head voice all to deliver different colors and emotions. And do it soft, dramatically powerful, low, sporano, clean, gritty, opera, growl. So much emotion and color to bring the feeling straight to you. Through metal and opera. And do it with control and the stage presence of an Amazon. Nor can most ever dream to.
But they can sell more and be more popular with the average crowd.

I guess all our current pop singers and wannabe rappers that now a day's use more auto tune than the pop ones that all sell more and are more popular are the most talented minds in music by that logic.

Apple have 66% of mobile profits.

That’s more than 1 number, just a whole lot of L’s for Android on a quarterly basis, LOL!

The iPhone 11 in 10 days did what most Androids could not do in 3 months.

Hilarious. You keep raking up these L’s! :D

Endless conjecture wit no numbers, lol, nobody coming to me with facts it seems.

So Apple 66% of profits and the iPhone XR continues to be the best selling smartphone each quarter:

Security updates are so overrated.
Unless a group or team of hackers target an user specifically using that particular security loophole, most users are safe.

AnonF-85937, 21 Dec 2019A whole lot of conjecture in your post mate, please post so... moreJeeez. When are you people gonna stop with this ridiculous fanboyism? Just buy whatever phone you want. No one has to hate this and that.

Apple makes good phones yes, and they have good aftersales and software support. But IMO i would prefer Android (preferrably Samsung) as im not satisfied with what Apple has to offer. I don't really care about updates anyways, all that security updates blah blah, i don't care as i don't store any sensitive information on my phone. Im not stupid enough to store sensitive data and have my phone get hacked.

Im a tech geek and there's lots of things i can do on android that i can't do on IOS, and thats why i prefer Android. If IOS can do the same, then i might consider switching. But i don't think it will be possible.

Plus your reasoning proves the point. Most other phones offer more for the price. Or deliver what's fair for the price. As opposed to apple charging more but offering even less.

And nothing you said changed the fact that they've proven you wrong about the sales.

People buy iPhones for iOS is no different than buying it for being an iPhone. A false belief based on the spreading of lies and bias that it is so much more polished and optimized. When it's clearly not. Or that it just works....the most bogus claim made.
