TBH android users are already spoiled for choice when it comes to large screens. I don't see any compelling reason for an android large screen user to switch from one ecosystem to another jus because Apple now have large screens. Unless they were already Apple fans making do with android until Apple released a big phone. Personally, I've had a mixture of devices over the years. This time I switched from a nexus 5 to an iPhone 6 for my main phone. I like the hardware...
Good. So anyone who claims to assert iphone dominance over android have no facts to back them up. In glad you agree.And seriously, you are using gazelle trade ins as a market indicator? How much are they paying you to advertise?
Funny how you moved from "absolutely no way" to defensive posturing.
No, they will not suffer IMO, because <4.7" Android smartphones are the lower market segment. I doubt many Android users who BOGO'd or got cheap phones would suddenly want to fork out $600+ for a 6/plus.

If you read back in the thread, I'm not interested in profit numbers. I asked for evidence to back up a posters claim that the large screen 6/plus caused a significant number of people to defect from android.We all know Apple makes the most profit, that's not at debate here.
Sure you will see an increase in iPhone 6/plus numbers, largely due to existing IOS upgraders, covering the holiday season, people buying the plus instead of an iPad and some switchers. I doubt you will see any noticeable swing in the overall global android marketshare which stands around 83% in Q3.   As for Q4 look at Kantar Worldpanels comments on 6/plus "Initial sales of the new iPhone models have overwhelmingly been from existing iPhone owners (87%).
