Consumer Reports: New iPhones Not As Bendy As Believed

tuppe666 No this is PR (299 comments)

So it's a hype?
Who would have thought that!

Ironically this is all about Public relations and nothing about the truth, and nobody thinks its apple can tell the truth anymore.. Apples standard to simply lie about everything from taxies to white plastic to antennas to how there devices should be used.If finally catching up with them.

I look forward to the truth coming out.

tuppe666 Android Beats Apple Again (206 comments)

I am an Android user

Me too, and I think that the fact that I have a 5.5" Phone in my pocked that cost a third the price of the iPhone, and in every way is better. Screams otherwise. I like my music Bass heavy and headphones to look good...like my phone, hell I could use the money I save by not buying an Apple.

tuppe666 Shipped figures vs Sale figures (206 comments)

Apple always reports actual sales

No...no...nope from a random 10K..."Product is considered delivered to the customer once it has been shipped and title and risk of loss have been transferred. For most of the Company’s product sales, these criteria are met at the time the product is shipped. For online sales to individuals, for some sales to education customers in the U.S., and for certain other sales, the Company defers recognition of revenue until the customer receives the product because the Company retains a portion of the risk of loss on these sales during transit."

So measure like every other company.

tuppe666 Apple repeated Myth No #1078 (206 comments)

Apple uses the actually sold numbers, Android used the hidden in the supply chain number.

Apple NEVER has used sold it has always stated that it counts them as sold because if only ships what it know it will sell. Always has check its the investment part of its site. It is actually more hilarious as Apple has to *cough* adjust its iPad figures after what was excused as changes in supply chain. We know see it is as Apple simply failing to sell iPads.

tuppe666 "What Profits?" Mr Cook (206 comments)

where do you think the money came from that they are using to buy stock back?

As I said it came from bonds, bought against money that is taxable nowhere for fear it might be used to pay for hospitals and schools. Mr Cook should have gone to jail.

tuppe666 Definations (206 comments)

iPhone is a product, android is an industry.

Know they are both products, just on the iPhone...iOS...the OS is a Unique Selling Point, and it used to be a pretty good one. As opposed to Android sold at Zero cost to Manufactures of Phones, for collecting the revenue from Advertising and the revenue from the Play store.

You can only argue which has the better model(Short term profits vs Long term Market share), I personally think Androids is better long term.

Spin somewhere else

tuppe666 Chinese Made Phone (206 comments)

How do they score on the ratio of iPhones sold to factory-worker suicides?

Not so many since they put in nets, and live in packed dorms... They only are made to feel like killing themselves. Now Riots and beating up the security guards, that is a different story.

tuppe666 Apple (Market) Shares (206 comments)

Which idiot voted this nonsense up? Obviously there aren't 1.5 billion android phones sold per day, and Apple shares are not dropping, in fact they have been on an upward trend in the last 6 months.

Sorry Apple Market Share...It peaked back in 2012. Ironically its shares are only going up do to market shenanigans. Including buybacks..and Apples (Fuck America Yeah!) Bonds.

In other news Hyundai outsells BMW 4 to 1. To each his own.

I am not sure if Apple is Like BMW with small memory, and storage, and screen resolution and battery..without features like waterproofing...maybe a smart car?

But one thing is for certain is that whatever make Apple is Android is Ferrari, Mercedes Benz, Ford Toyota, Royals Royce etc etc

tuppe666 Android sells one and Half Million every day (206 comments)

We're what, 9 billion people on this Earth and closest part of space and you want us to belive that 1 billion Android devices are sold every day?

A million is simply not as much as it used to be. Android sell 1 and half million devices daily last time I checked, although this was before the massive growth in places like India. Apples Share continues to drop.

Is that better. :)

Why the iPhone 6 Has the Same Base Memory As the iPhone 5

tuppe666 Becuse it is small (261 comments)

The iPhone 6 comes with 1 Gb of memory. And has options for 16, 64 and 128 Gb of storage.
Why does this even get published?

Because 16GB it is considered useless with todays ever growing Application, Photo and Video sizes...and ironically OS Sizes. Even. National newspapers are discussing it http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sci...

Why the iPhone 6 Has the Same Base Memory As the iPhone 5

tuppe666 Comparing Apples with Apples (261 comments)

That's about right. I just checked my iPhone (4s), and in over two years of use, never cleaning anything, I've barely passed 5GB. By far the biggest use of space is recorded videos, followed by photos, then several big apps.

And it is not a good comparison. Photos and Videos take up more space on a phone because the cameras now are higher resolution, even though they are still tiny compared to the opposition, and Apps are growing exponentially I have several Apps that are GBs. I know Apple does not have as many Apps as Android, but I would find it astonishing if it were not the same.

Why the iPhone 6 Has the Same Base Memory As the iPhone 5

tuppe666 The the me too iphone is a Samsung Clone (261 comments)

An expanded memory will be the new wonderful feature of the iPhone 7 that all the world was expecting.

The iphone was few bragging points and one of them is its slimness is one of them. look at the ugly badly designed protruding camera on the me too iphone to protect the use of this stupid advantage(sic). It uis the same reason they don't have removable batteries.

tuppe666 Low resolution Selfie on a me too 11GB phone (261 comments)

I prefer not to keep my entire picture library on it.

With its tiny resolution cameras you don't need a lot of storage. It is only 8MP the selfie cam is an astonishingly small 1.2. I agree though mobile devices should advise space free not total amount. In this case iOS 8 takes up 5GB of that space so should advertise itself as a 11GB phone

Why the iPhone 6 Has the Same Base Memory As the iPhone 5

tuppe666 Undespecced in every way even at $800 (261 comments)

Ignoring the usual America centric hire purchase model that makes the me too iphone acceptable in America with a market share there of 40% yet 10% everywhere else when you have to pay $800 vs $200.

The me too iPhone is underspecced in every way; Not just storage but ram, screen resolution, both camera resolutions (The front is a disgrace), and still on only two cores. It does not even compete with phones costing half the price a year ago. Yet it still lacks features such as IR Blaster, Waterproofing...or even a radio.

The fact that it still has no removable battery...or more importantly to this apologists topic the removable sdcard on a me too phone with tiny resolution is a disgrace.

Apple has no Clothes

tuppe666 tuppe666 writes  |  about 2 years ago

tuppe666 (904118) writes "The title maybe should be "The rise of Frankenstein Android" or "2013 the Year of Mobile Windows", but the slump in market share for the iPhone from 23.1% to 14.9% is the most shocking. Androids market share of hit a new high with 75%. Nokias 1:1 conversion to Windows Phone again fails as Symbian at 2.3% is still outselling Microsoft Phone at 2%.

Apples market slump for tablets mirrors that of the iPhone as the iPad drops to an all time low of 50.4% with Android taking up most of the excess, although some of it not in a form Google would like [Amazon hitting 9%]. Microsoft is still yet to make any impact in tablet market, and have positioned themselves squarely in the larger tablet market, an area Android has repeatedly failed to inroad [The Nexus 10 has not yet proved itself]. Although I am surprised at the lack of attention around devices like the $35 media tablet called Aakash"
