Verizon is actually in the business of selling contracts... not phones.They will "give away" a phone in order to lock you into $90 a month for the next 24 months. It can be any phone... from a cheap flip-phone to a Note 2.Apple doesn't allow their phones to be used in such promotions. But that's not a problem... Verizon doesn't care which phone you get as long as you're paying $90 a month for the next 2 years.As for the Note 2 not selling.... who knows for sure. I doubt...
Bottom line: If Apple offered a larger screened phone... I would buy it instead of the smaller one.
My god... you're right.3.5" 4" is the only size for a smartphone.Apple should never change anything, right?
Because I fucking want one!Also... when I bought a bigger monitor for my desktop... I didn't do it so I could sit further from the screen. I just wanted a bigger screen.Let me want that!
Because it's a bigger image on the screen.It's the same reason you choose a 46" TV over a 40" TV... or a 15" laptop over a 13" laptop... or prefer a 3" screen on a new Nikon DSLR over a 2.5" screen on an older camera.I don't know why this is such a difficult concept to grasp.Besides... my pocket could certainly accommodate a larger device.
And not just phablets. Most Samsung smartphones today (and basically all other decent smartphones) are well over 4"I love my iPhone.... but Apple only recently got to a 4" 16:9 screen... something the original Galaxy S had in 2010. And Samsung smartphones have grown ever since.Galaxy S 4.0"Galaxy SII 4.3"Galaxy SIII 4.8"How big is too big? I dunno... but I'd like the option to get a larger iPhone. Just a little larger
Nice chart Yeah... I was never too worried about Apple "losing" to Android. I don't think it really matters where you rank on a chart like that. Apple makes great products, has great developer support, great retention, tons of accessories, you name it. Oh... and they make an obscene amount of money despite selling 5 TIMES fewer phones than the next spot on that chart. At that point... who cares if the other guys sell more?Apple doesn't sell cheap phones. Their phones...
Android surges to 75% smartphone market share in Q3Google's (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android mobile operating system powered three out of every four smartphones shipped worldwide during the third quarter of 2012, according to new data from market intelligence firm IDC.There are reports like this all over the web...
I didn't think there were smartphones available for $100. Thank you for enlightening me.New topic... is Samsung really dominating by pumping a bunch of garbage phones into the market? A bunch of phones that will never see a modern OS?I often wonder this... Android has something like 75% market share across the globe. A big number.But shouldn't all those terrible phones weigh against Android as a whole? You know... Fandroids spouting off about "winning" while those...
Oh ok... those cheap pre-paid Android phones. Essentially the "burners" of this generation.Doesn't this fall under the category of "you get what you pay for" ?Wouldn't a $299 Nexus 4 be a much better phone?
