Apple suffers ‘iPhone fatigue’… like it does every single year…

Jonny Evans

Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.

    “Samsung shipped 78 million smartphones in Q2 2016”

    Only about 5 million of those were high end Galaxy phones that compete with the iPhone. The vast majority of the phones Samsung sells are cheap, low-end phones that bring in very little revenue, and an insignificant amount of profit.

    Apple sold about 10 times as many high end phones as Samsung did in the same period.

    Since almost all of the profitability is in the sales of high end phones, it is no wonder that Apple pulls in over 90% of the profits from the worldwide sales of ALL mobile phones.

    Exactly my point! And with Samsung you have to think — even the high end sales are subsidised. It has the deployed platform,but is unable to offer compelling, unique services as it does not have total control of the software behind the platform, and the boat for Tizen left town three years ago. Hoisted. Own. Petard.
    Whole of the other platform is just a gateway drug to grown up devices, if you ask me.
