So is this the PC vs. Mac battle all over again? Looking at reports from companies like Gartner, comScore, and Nielsen, it's easy to see Android emerging as the "winner" of market share. Apple, however, may not mind as long as it keeps on earning record profits. Remember that plenty of Apple users will buy simply because there is a new model. It doesn't matter if there are only incremental changes, it's the new hotness and you want to be able to show your friends, right?. Preaching to the same choir?As is the case with every product that comes out of the company, Apple will preach its new iPhone to the choir. Is it a massive, always-growing choir? Of course! But the real question is whether Apple can continue to attract so many new members to its congregation. Android phones are getting cheaper all the time, yet the hardware continues to be rather top-notch stuff. I suspect that Apple will be happy with whatever the sales numbers are and that profit is more of a concern than market share.
Stacking up to Android phonesOn paper, there's nothing in the iPhone 5 that puts it far above the competition, The larger 4-inch display and 4G LTE connectivity are two of the biggest, and only improvements over last year's model, yet it's still a lovecases luxury crystal iphone xs case - gold matter of catching up to the industry, Android users have enjoyed these features in one capacity or the other for the better part of two years now, In fact, the notion that a phone doesn't come with both 4G LTE and a 4-inch (or larger display) seems to immediately bump it down to midrange, The hard-core Android crowd is used to seeing this stuff in a handset, and the average consumer probably knows that both have existed for some time..
Android phones offer users a few other things today that even the new iPhone 5 does not. Folks who like to be on the cutting edge of technology certainly will be impressed with quad-core processors, NFC support, and much larger displays. Maybe you don't need something as leading-edge as an Nvidia Tegra 3 chip, but like the idea of mobile payments (Google Wallet). Or, maybe you think that 5.5-inch Galaxy Note 2 looks pretty sharp with its massive screen and digital stylus. Love to take pictures with your phone? Perhaps we can interest you in an Optimus G and its 13-megapixel "world-beating (YouTube)" camera.
Apple spent more time talking about the new camera features than it did with battery life or other hardware details, Sure, it's the experience that matters to the consumer base and Apple's is unlike no other, That said, I did not see any particular opportunities for it to take a swipe at Android or other players when it comes to phone specifications, Maybe it's the new post-Jobs way of unveiling a product, maybe it's because Apple understands that it doesn't have something new and lovecases luxury crystal iphone xs case - gold revolutionary for this go 'round, Whatever it is, I didn't see anything that would send an Android handset maker scrambling to respond, Along those lines, I'm hard-pressed to find people who saw something in the iPhone 5 that will have them defect from Android..
Overall impactIn the near few months, Apple will see sales of its iPhone soar, and in record numbers. In the longer term, Android will not be affected all that much and we'll likely see the platform pulling closer to 60 percent market share or greater. Less expensive phones, more hardware options, and a wider variety of carrier options will see that Android continues its growth. In other words, it's the same today as it was in 2009. Android users and new smartphone buyers are going to largely adopt the platform, just as they have in increasing numbers over the last few years. On the other hand, Apple will still pull in new folks all the time, growing its own base. Loyalists and fanboys are going to continue to take shots at each other and claim that it's their grass that is greener. Given that the smartphone industry is growing at such a rapid rate, both players will be content with their piece of the pie.
