Apple invented a revolutionary smartphone in 2007, after which they began to treat the company with great interest, but reluctance. After Google bought Android, a competitor appeared in the bosom of smartphones. Of course, the iPhone with its iOS was much better than raw Android. Since then, Apple has been considered a well-known, expensive brand with a lot of fans. But it's worth noting that Android is not lagging behind, and has already caught up, or even surpassed Apple ..
2 Iphone sold, it's such a poor option. Only for girls who don't understand anything))) Who have rhinestones in their heads and nothing more))))
Good afternoon. The question is not entirely correct. A boy from the village, for example, does not like him, because there is nothing. A girl likes him for her image. A businessman for status, but he may not like him for work, since he is not compatible with all programs. Etc. Everything is subjective. Apple just made a number of revolutionary decisions in due time and put a lot of time and effort into design and advertising. At the time when APPLE took over the sales market, there were many innovative solutions. But there was simply no competition as such. Over time, the situation has changed significantly. APPLE is no longer innovating and the market has become very competitive. And in most cases APPLE even began to lag behind in technology and solutions. Now the following situation has developed .... lagging behind in innovation and development, and the image created earlier (prestige, expensive, not available to everyone, etc.) is still working. But with a constant lag in technology, and the lack of new solutions, APPLE's positions are significantly shifting for the better. This is evidenced by the drop in sales of the last tenth and already eleventh IPHONE lines. The price tag is very high, taking into account that old technologies are used, which have long been ahead of competitors. But buying the same IPHONE lately it happens purely because of the desire to have it in spite of the technology. And after the purchase, a person already understands that everything is not so convenient and works quickly in comparison with similar competitors. But APPLE also has its own conveniences because of its operating system to which many generations of people have already got used. Therein lies the pun ... buying for the sake of habit or for the sake of image, status. But do not forget that we are talking about technology and it tends to become outdated, regardless of the image and status. These are personal thoughts out loud, I apologize if this offended anyone.
This is a very difficult question to answer. At the moment, the point is that people agree with the majority opinion. If the majority loves the iPhone, then almost everyone will consider the iPhone the best.
Although in reality it is not. The iPhone, like other smartphones, has its pros and cons. People who love iPhones choose Apple technology for the ecosystem. These are people who did not succumb to the mainstream, and did not buy an iPhone simply because "it is from everyone, and I will take it for myself."
These people use the Apple ecosystem, where each device complements and replaces each other. It's hard to achieve this on Android, since the OS itself is made by Google, and there are a huge number of smartphone manufacturers, and everyone is trying to customize and make an Android smartphone for themselves and also interact with their gadgets.
But then the question of the ecosystem on Android arises. For example, taking a Xiaomi smartphone and a smart watch from Huawei, it is unlikely that they will work in a pair at 100%. Huawei is not profitable, so the clock will work completely (meaning all functions and chips) only with the Huawei phone.
Here we come to the conclusion, people like the iPhone more than Android (this is only if we are talking about those people who have been using Apple for a long time and use its ecosystem) because they want to get devices that work perfectly with each other without unnecessary "dancing with a tambourine".
I also advise you to read the article on which is better than iOS or Android.
It's difficult to speak for everyone, but I believe that due to the more user-friendly interface, the almost complete absence of virus threats, well, the prestige of Aplle should not be ruled out.
The question is ambiguous, at least in its wording, because the iPhone is an iPhone, but a huge number of devices are running under the Android OS - both frankly bad and quite competitive. The days when Apple smartphones were flawless market leaders, Samsung tried to catch up, and Chinese companies shamelessly copied everyone and everything - gone. Now on the market there are a huge number of Android devices of such brands as Huawei, Xiaomi, etc., as well as the same Samsung, the quality and design of smartphones of which have become head and shoulders above and cause nothing but admiration.
Consumer love for the iPhone has both long roots and some of the current factors. The first can be attributed to the high cost of the brand and its rarity (after all, during the days of the release of the first iPhone, it was not available in Russia), always stylish design and premium materials, as well as the flawless work of iOS. The apple on the back cover has become a symbol of American quality and wealth of the owner of the device. The second should include all the same excellent optimization of hardware and software, which makes less powerful stuffing more productive compared to competitors, all the same build quality and premium materials, as well as the relative convenience and ease of use of iOS.
Perhaps in this, as well as in the long-standing habit of experienced Yabloko to Apple products, lies the love for the iPhone.
P.s .: Do not discount the saying "The forbidden fruit is sweet". After all, someone who does not have an iPhone either lusts for it or openly hates it. There are more of the first.
This is a very controversial issue, given the sales statistics in recent years. The iPhone operating system - iOS - is very closed and distinctive today. All the "stuffing", from applications to ringtone, can be installed either from official sources or through iTunes. It can seem inconvenient, time consuming, and confusing, and it can be expensive. But this approach removes problems with the compatibility of files, applications, excludes virus infection, makes the system itself practically invulnerable in terms of security. Also, a single system easily allows you to change the device to a newer model: the system is easily synchronized, and all data and settings are applied on the new device without much intervention from the client. Do not forget about the ergonomic design.
At the same time, supporters of Android-smartphones are also far from small. It should be borne in mind that now in the assortment of such equipment there are not only cheap models, but also premium equipment that is not inferior in characteristics, quality and design of the iPhone. And the openness of the system is an advantage for many, because it allows you to personalize the device as much as possible. Yes, there is a need for additional protection measures in the form of installing an antivirus. At the same time, for most users of Android smartphones, this is not a significant disadvantage when choosing technology.
