I liked the S10e and it was an awesome phone but after that I didnt find many. either hardware is not good enough or software. so went back to iphones.

AhmedSLL, 27 Jan 2022Huawei was the only competitor, and it's not about cop... moreTrue, everybody copies, but what to avoid is allowing customers to see who you copy blatantly. That will make your product look really inferior, and why would you settle for a copy when you can get the product they copy?

Equinox, 27 Jan 2022But you also need to remember that Tim Cook paid an exorbit... moreYes, Apple may have done that, but doing so doesn't guarantee them sales, as the chinese government cannot control their population on what to buy. So Apple selling a lot of iPhone 13's in China last quarter is not something to scoff at. Apple is doing something better than the chinese domestic brands.

Buying cheap is not always a good decision, as you tend to get mediocre product that you will only use for a short time. Versus buying something pricey that you will know you will use longer than that cheap plastic you bought.

Note7 owner, 27 Jan 2022Chinese like to buy the best. Simple explanation. Hahaha. Its like buying something that you know copied, versus buying something that was copied.

missing piont, 27 Jan 2022you really miss the point.... No he didn’t, it’s logical to compare YoY stats, it gives the picture how company and market is doing, comparing it to 1978 Q4 doesn’t make any sense because Apple or anyone else didn’t sold iPhone in China back then.

At this point I have to ask where you work if you don't know what comparison of business from year before to last year means. It's that YoY in the chart which means "Year-over-year" difference and defines a trend between years of the past. Obviously they can't compare it to Q4 2022, because it hasn't happened yet. Next year the same chart will list 2021 and 2022. You can go as many years back if you want to see how business trends through years and bigger periods of time...

  • questions

can someone please explain to me what the logical relationship is between Q4 2020 and Q4 2021?
Why don't we compare Q4 1978 with Q4 2021 or something else completely irrational?

-Trix-, 26 Jan 2022Not surprising, iPhone 13 series are hands down best phones... moreI'd say only Galaxy S series are somewhat a match. Not S21 with cheap plastic back. But S22 will be comparable. Hardware and software. Which is a rare in Android space really. Usually they are all out hardware and absolutely zero effort on software side.

bulbulito.bayagbag, 26 Jan 2022Heck even the Google Pixel can't even come close to wh... morePixel gives 5 years of updates. Also I'm using iPhone 13 and software updates have made the phone a chore to use already with so many stutters and glitches. I go on forums to read if it's safe to update or not.

Android doesn't need system updates since everything gets updated through the play Store while Apple requires system updates to run any app.

I use both and my affordable android phone gets way much more use than my iPhone. Stop being fanbois of a particular brand. They are all cancer for humans.

This year should be the year that the production of chips in China will be independent from US tech. For a healthy competition I hope so.

Add to that and the apple's servers are in China and the government has access to them. Beside these, apple will let down Foxconn and they'll make a contract with a chinese company.
