Apple storms to top spot in stagnant Chinese phones market


Re: I dont understand, am I an idiot?

Because idiot trolls are so small minded that they only take into account what they can see like "hardware". Yes there are hardware costs, but then there are R&D costs, too, which is hard to quantify. I don't work for Apple, but I do support their products including Windows, Android, Blackberry and their vendors to name a few. From start to finish, Apple is way over engineered, which is a good thing. They look at every aspect of a product including the packaging, interface, hardware esthetics. It's pretty impressive actually. Just look at the Apple watch: Droid watches had 6 months to copy and prepare and still their watches are cheap looking and lacking in features. The reason is they don't employ top level people. I see $350 Android watches that no one is buying because it sucks in comparison.

Don't get me wrong, I like competition and I think Android has done good work, but there's a reason why everyone is chasing Apple and they're leaders in good ideas.
