Looks like apple need to rethink headphone jack, poor battery, poor operating system and poor value for money

I'm an Android fan, but each to their own as some people prefer iOS.

But I do think the bezels on the iPhone are silly at a phone of that cost.
Wow down 1% after 50million sales.
May as well sack everyone and shut up shop.

I said in another thread, some time ago, how I'd noticed many former apple devotees switching over to Samsung Galaxy.

I got shot down.

Don't know what glass apple uses on the iPhone, but I'm always seeing broken screen iPhones on the train, as if it's a design fault.

IMO galaxy range is overpriced, I have a Moto g4 which is a fraction of the price.
Cheap Chinese phones are also making inroads
I have an iphone. The simple fact that its extremely optimized and very simple and most importantly works 100% of the time makes it the best phone for me. I have had a galaxy s3 s5 and then an xperia z. But iphone wins out. All of my android phones would freeze over time or become sluggish.

All my latest android phones have had 2gb ram, never had any slow down problems.

Earlier android phones only had 1gb ram , which could be a bottleneck

Lol about to get shot down again. It's 8:50. Let others wake up
Sales are down 400,000 over last year - lets use your head. The SE launched before the end of Q2 which spiked sales dramatically. This year, Apple released the Red IPhone in a spiritual replacement; though much later, so therefore its sales cast did. It comply with q2 earnings.

Either way, no other phone could match the caliber of their sales. They're still selling stupid amounts, lol. Stop acting like they're failing

My daughters and son have iphones and they've had nothing but battery problems, Also the lightning cables last about 10 minutes and the screens smash far too easily for a £700+ mobile.

It's a bizarre thing to shout so brazenly. Makes your whole 'free will' argument seem a bit strange but hey ho.
It was reported in the business news yesterday that Apple have $250 billion in off shore revenue that they're waiting to bring into the US when they get offered a tax break. I can't see that they'd be overly bothered about a few lost sales in the US and Europe. . .

Er, all of my iPhones would become sluggish too! Apple push people to update to latest iOS which in turn would slow the phone down, and eventually render it useless, so time for another iPhone... oO

I used to love the iPhones, but then I actually looked at what you can get for ~£200 with Android and realised it's 95% of what I need (not being a big phone gamer). The only major difference is having an average camera, but with an extra £500 in my pocket I can live with it
I read that people are holding off for the iPhone 8, regardless, like others have said, with over £200bn in cash reserves, they are hardly in trouble
iphone 8 with Samsung oled screen is what they are waiting for

I read recently "Apple are the modern day masters of obsolesence" - after looking up obsolence I really liked that phrase. I think Apple products are excellent. I am writing this on a Macbook which, from my perspective, cost a lot of money but it is much more enjoyable to use and more stylish than any laptop I have had. Same goes for iphones but I have never justified to myself the latest handset (due to price) and have not had an iphone at all for past two years. I would like a 7 plus but at 36 have managed to stop myself (a younger me would have got one by now) Apple, I salute you. 250 billion offshore? C'mon who can deny that for sheer awe inspiring value. Do something good with it now Apple - save the world from us!
What I don't understand is I have a job and can't afford a iPhone so how to the school kids buy them

School kids should have iPhone they should be going round with moto g their cheaper and does same thing
I stopped buying after iphone5, they discontinued it after a short time, lost out money becuase value dropped which usually is steady but after the announcement, crash, they replaced with 5c which also got discontinued after a short while so if one customer got mugged off only for it to happen again, they would never go back. I wouldn't even go back after what they did with ip5.

Threads like this really make me chuckle. Have people really got nothing better to worry about than Apple? Why do people so passionately want them to fail but would love some other company to take over and do exactly the same? Or rather, do people think that any company in Apple's position would act any differently? It's all very strange but I guess we've all gotta have a hobby.

I use Android and iOS devices daily and enjoy them for what they are - I don't really care about the company making them as such, I just enjoy the product. My family all uses iPhones apart from my mum - do I care if they're 'sheep'? Not really. They also shop at Sainsbury's instead of Aldi, which I think is daft, but it's their choice.
I have an iPhone 7 and I have to admit I did worry about the missing headphone jack. Now I don't. I bought Bluetooth headphones 3 months before (I didn't even know that I wanted to get an iPhone 7 then ) and they work. Hard to find decent Bluetooth earphones though.

So you missed somewhere to plug the headphones into but they gave you a connector that you plug into the phone and connect headphones to it.........a lot of people made a big deal out of it but all a while others were just laughing as the reality is you still do the same thing as before just use a different connector. God knows how people managed when before smartphones came out

Nah mine is refurb so I never got a connector I even got EarPods for the normal port so I can't use them for the phone either that's mobiles.co.uk for you. I still sometimes try to plug my headphones in but then I remember
At last people are waking up!
