Happy to see free country of India slowly stop buying Chinese stuff. Do a moral choice and dont support China!

    Anonymous, 06 Nov 2022Lots of Chinese brands are facing battery issues in India. ... moreExactly,

    There’s very simple reason why only Apple and Samsung ”have” them, they are only ones who press and news cares. Every smartphone company have somekind of problems with batteries, it’s nature of batteries, but it’s not worth of news. Only one who had very real problem with battery was Samsung.

      Anonymous, 06 Nov 2022Lots of Chinese brands are facing battery issues in India. ... moreHence past 7 years i am member of this site GSMArena never spoken of any other brand just Samsung and Apple.
      If there are so lots how do you explain me this???

          And the first yes it was a bug. Innital after a release.
          When a 1200 eur device comes to the light of a world everybody expect outstanding device not a failuer like that.

                  Apple haven’t had any issues with batteries as long as i remember. If you mean the battery gate it was just a reality with years old batteries couldn’t keep their full charge after years of usage. Happened to me too, i was using 6s until iPhone X came.

                    No other brand ever had problems with batteries or chrging.
                    Everybody knows that but yeah someone like you must act like a Jim Carrier from Dumb and Dumber movie.
                    You know i am right but is hard to admit it 2 most known brands Apple and Samsung are the only ones which in past 10 years had battery or charging problems and issues.

                                    -Trix-, 04 Nov 2022What are you talking about? Apple brag? Apple have news??!?... moreI see you have a good fantasy that affects you on understanding what is written. And yes i think apple is bragging. We see these news only in the end of the year that means after they have released there new model list to the market. Also that month will be when the older models drop in price. And also cause the 14th series isn't much better then the 13th series then people buy more 13 cause the 14th is more expensive and dont make sense to pay more. Also i bet they compare the 13th series with the latest models from other brands in that Q3. We dont see what is compared in these lists so i dont think they are comparing any old model of Android and that Q3 is when most brands dont set there new models out and then drop there older model prices. In Android market you wont want to buy 1 year od model cause these dont get a lot support anyways like iphone that still have 4 years updates when 1 year old. With android it's 1-2 years left.

                                    Also i want to say that this news would make it more on the spot if it would of being India people buy a lot of iphone 14 series as there new model and there for in premium segment makes top numbers but it isn't like that and there for i cant give this news a credit like it's something special or to make news about. Even Redmi Note 5 series is still sold as new in India market so think of these figures of over 4 years sold these models. But thats not premium segment to compare with.

                                      Anonymous, 04 Nov 2022Well thats the thing Apple always have these news every end... moreWhat are you talking about? Apple brag? Apple have news??!?!? This is data from counterpoint research, not from Apple 😂 Apple have literally never bragged their phone sales the way you just mentioned.
