I'm sticking with I-Phone. Will probably upgrade to 5 soon. Had one forever. Not interested in a bigger screen. If I wanted to carry around a tablet in my pocket, I'd get a tablet.

Apple store is secure and easy to use. Love the volume of apps to chose from. Music is easy to manage and obtain.

Timely article.

Of course they're going to lose market share, when you have 50 billion android phones to one iphone, it's not an amazing thing to say they've lost market share to android.

Yes but it's the RATE at which they recently have fallen off that is troubling for them. Settling in to a 15-20% market space is fine but at this rate they could drop below 10% which would be disastrous.

The only thing "bad" about the S4 is that it's so ****ing big.

Other than that it's the best phone out there right now hands down IMO.

Laugh all you want but it's true. When my LA movie industry friends are pissed and even looking at HTCs or Samsungs that is a bad bad sign. I think the last straw for many of them was the abortion of a Mac Pro that they are trying to foist on them. They haven't done a damn thing innovative for quite awhile now. I can hate on Apple but in the end I don't want this to continue because it is bad for all of us.

Yep. If Apple is running out of ideas, what will everyone else copy and make better?

(Only partially kidding...)

Interesting read. It really is amazing how fall they've fallen behind in the global market. This chart is mindblowing:

I don't really see how they can make much headway outside of the U.S. at this point without some MAJOR strategy changes.

Same thing happened with Apple with the PC market in the late 80s-early 90s... You'd think they would learn.

I would totally buy a 5.5 inch iPhone. Android always seems to get glitchy after a few months of use...

It has nice potential for business users as an alternative an alphanumeric password if it works well and offers sufficient security.

Huge Android fanboy here. It seems Apple has had consistently good cameras in the iPhone. Only the Nokia Lumia 1020 Windows Phone (probably the best for photos) and maybe the Moto X compare. The HTC One and S4 are gonna produce quality images though.

Coming from a photo perspective, however, iPhone 5s has a flash which will adjust for the ambient lighting by mixing two different LEDs to produce a matching color temperature (think of the difference between going from sunlight to indoor houselights.) This just seems really cool to me. There is a bunch of other processor mumbo jumbo going on the phone too.

I love Android, but the 5s seems solid.
