  • iPhone 5s Cemented as Top Selling Smartphone in the U.S.


    Apple's iPhone 5s remains the undisputed king of smartphones in the U.S.

    Despite concerns and projections in recent months across the mobile tech landscape that the flagship Apple smartphone may have experienced weakened consumer demand following the holiday shopping season, the latest industry reports tell a different story.

    By the close of March, Apple's iPhone 5s was still logging market share gains at the expense of dwindling domestic Android device sales. On Thursday, Canaccord Genuity analyst Michael Walkley told investors that the softest sales are seen in the realm of Android today (although that may change when Samsung's new Galaxy S5 lands late next week).

    Regardless, Canaccord Genuity's research verifies that the iPhone 5S is still the top seller in the U.S.

    "With our surveys indicating gradually increasing consumer interest in and pre-order activity for these new Android smartphones, we anticipate new high-end Android smartphones will gain market share versus the iPhone during the June quarter," Walkley added.

    But the momentum may not last in Android's favor.

    "Given strong iPhone and iPad customer loyalty, we believe larger screen iPhones and iPads should create a very strong upgrade cycle during [the second half of 2014] given the popularity of larger screen smartphones and tablets combined with new hardware form factors accelerating replacement rates for Apple's growing installed base," Walkley concluded.

      Amen brother, jailbroken iOS 1.0 is superior to iOS "any" if it's not jailbroken, actually any OS is superior to any un-jailbroken iOS, no greater truth can be said.

      I was a loyal customer since Apples 1st iPhone was released, but I HATE everything about iOS 7. I'm not into the flat and basic design.
