Even a child can understand biological ecosystem rest alone cloud based ecosystem... Your favourite company's ecosystem works only in limited device categories based on Google cloud where Google ecosystem is vastly connected with almost all types of devices with one cloud account.. I wonder an Apple fan talking about technology XD

Wow guess a lot of people here don't like the idea of companies making money and becoming rich! Keep it real and stay poor? hahaha

so the biggest profit, they have abnormal prices, as far as i see apple shops are empty;)) i will do my best to paint,) who else has to throw 1500e for a phone that changes in a year, for 1500e you will buy 3 phones ,,, simply with better cameras than iphone, not their memory is something special to pay for the memory 500e more when samsung huavei and others offer better for less money, with more ram memory, with sd memory

Android is holding the best eco system ever on the earth with almost 90% of users.. Even your favourite company also use Google cloud system.. Look at drop test of phonebuff where your iPhones got beaten by Samsung note 10 or 9.. And talking about powerful SoC but lost to most of one generation old android flagships.. I feel sorrow for you fan :(

I really admire their marketing department. To convince people that a pile of outdated hardware that cost them $250, running software that delivers Windows Vista-like experience is worth 4x as much is a true marketing masterpiece.

Everybody lying to themselves they did a good purchase of that 1000$ phone.
But months later when regrets start kicking in, maybe some bad luck with the device, I am grabbing the beer and popcorn.

Laughing on 6 months old 200$ phone, that does everything perfect.

P.S. Don't invest your hard earn money in things, invest them in experiences. Trust me, in the long run you will be more pleased with yourself.

Despite all the endless “value for money” Androids and Flagship Androids that drop heavily in price within 2 months, Apple customers are happy to pay premium because:

1. We get long term software updates (iPhone 6S STILL gets OS updates!)
2. We get the best Ecosystem in modern computing.
3. The best build quality (iPhone X, XS and 11 Pro are all stainless steel)
4. Best overall after sales service.
5. The best SoC in Mobile and Tablets

Makes sense that they get the most profit, they actually give value overtime and not just in the short time which is how most Androids work.
