Dude(sic) People holding off to buy the 6 was obvious from the iOS market share decline...  OKaaaaaay. It's 'fewer' top end phones, not 'less' - and Xiaomi certainly do make top end phones.  Compare the S5 with the Mi 4: http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=6033&idPhone2=6518 Lenovo, LG, Oppo, One +1, Huawei, Nexus and their ilk have taken sales from the S5.  I think I did mention once or twice that it was the lack of S5 sales that were the main part of Samsung's...
I read the first sentence which was so wrong there was no point reading the rest.   Samsung shot themselves in the foot with the S5 which, apart from the screen, was so underwhelming people went and bought something else.  When I was looking for a phone for my son, Samsung didn't even occur to me since all their top end phones are rather dull so I got him an LG.  Xiaomi has increased sales in the last quarter by 211.3 % and it's Apple who are the cause of Samsung's...
Someone very recently posted the statistic that 86% of iPhone users have them in a case.  Perhaps the appearance isn't their top criteria.  But the issue I was addressing was that Samsung got it right and Apple has recognised that.  iPhones do tend to look very good indeed, and Samsung's, not so much, but that is a different topic.

A watch band where the surface was almost entirely solar cells might help.  Mechanical systems deliver a lot less energy.  A Citizen eco-drive watch can go more than 6 months on about an hour or so of exposure to direct sunlight.  A Seiko Kinetic watch has to be shaken nearly every day.  I had a conversation with an employee in a jewelers and he complained it was a chore to daily take the kinetics out of the window display and shake them for a while and then put them back,...
 The carriers won't fight at all.  The EU just passes legislation to make their overcharging go away. http://ec.europa.eu/digital-agenda/en/roaming It hasn't been ratified as yet but probably will be.
The topic is ethics in relation to China, nice attempt at a deflection though.  Dare I mention Apple allowing user data to be stored on servers in China, accompanied by the outright lie that the principle reason is to improve the performance of it's cloud services.
Try harder.  Maybe make something up.
You don't expect Apple to display the backbone and ethical fortitude of Google do you?  There's no 45% profit in that.
Apple Pay looks positively cumbersome.
