    I'm pretty consistent with the stance of making sure you buy the device that works best for you, but it seems that people are starting to really make it difficult for the competition. Samsung, long the major competitive manufacturer for Apple in the smart phone arena, has been absolutely pummeled this most recent round...

    Samsung's mobile profits plunge 64.2% after Apple's iPhone 6 devastates premium Galaxy sales

    Crazy. Samsung has some work to do. Next September the nightmare continues if not worse.

    That iPhone 6 is so hot right now. I think it's going to stay pretty hot. Samsung shouldn't be the only one that is worried.

    Apple was hot before, but releasing two size of devices in 2014 simply sent Apple into the stratosphere...

    All it tells me is that all of those people who felt the need to come here to call us iSheep and to tell us how stupid we were for liking a device that they deemed inferior were all full of crap. They've always wanted one, but wanted it with a bigger screen, and now that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus has arrived with the bigger screen, they're forgetting all about the crap they spouted before September....#smh

    That's typically how it is...even here there are some of those members who crap on the competition, when in reality, the other manufacturers make some fantastic devices (I can't lie, I'm still intrigued by the Lumia series phones, I just can't stand the Windows OS)...and the Note seems to really be a heavy weight in terms of abilities and technology.

    But I've always laughed at people who felt Apple was "behind" in any facet. It's just foolish to view Apple as anything but a top tier manufacturer and developer...

    What drives me crazy it the "Apple is for the non tech people" and Android is for "the tech savvy" BS. I have had both including BB and Windows phone and I like Apple. I work in tech at my job so those can go scratch lol.

    I also do like the Nokia phones, gonna keep an eye on windows 10 that will work across all aspects of hardware.

    That's great and all, but the subject here is about the most recent quarter. So whatever happens next quarter doesn't have any relevance to what we're talking about here.

    In case you didn't catch the headlines from Tuesday, Apple's $18 billion quarterly profit for Q1 fiscal 2015 is the largest quarterly profit of any company in the world in all of history.

    Wasn't Samsung's profit 4B vs Apples 18B. That's a lot of traction.

    And how does one determine growth ? Is it not rendered from a comparison between different quarters ?so seems pretty relevant to me.

    We're talking about a singular event right now...the thread was started to reflect and discuss this singular report about one quarter. Is that difficult to compute? Because being a bunch of 1's, I figured it would be very easy...nobody in this thread even remotely insinuated that they "banked" anything on one quarter, we were simply discussing it...and pointing out how significantly Apple dominated Samsung, who truly are the only legitimate competition in terms of volume moved in the industry (right now).

    And besides...this is a regular occurrence for Apple...dominant performance. And then we get into the people who like to talk about the gloom and doom relating to Apple, who do it about as commonly as Apple reports such dominant performances.

    yea thanks for the break down yes, lets just base everything on one quarter irregardless of the consecutive smackdown been given back to back to back, but one quarter and yep thats complete dominance.
    As you claimed a "regular occurrence" and isnt that a comparison from prior events?
    maybe its just me and my limited expectations but in order for me to claim true dominance, i would want to have a couple over my opponents not just a one up. hope you dont get too bend out of shape about this now
    but yes give due where its due not saying it isnt something spectacular but saying lets see how it goes before one start tooting any horns.

    I am not surprised by this, as my note 4 has been for sale for weeks and no bites really on it. That being said I do "like" Samsung phones I don't think they are horrible like most die hard Apple fans are. My wife is a dedicated Samsung user and loves her Galaxy devices and for her needs I see how it suits her. She stays at home with our kids during the day, big screen on the note allows for both kids to watch a movie while she gets some cleaning done, she always texts sitting down, and her main thing to do on her phone after the house dies down is read books (on the note). Someone with that lifestyle I totally get it. However for me and many others the os apple designs and its high end hardware is just unmatchable.

    "yes give due where its due not saying it isnt something spectacular but saying lets see how it goes before one start tooting any horns."

    By this logic, no one should ever toot horns for any accomplishment unless they do it over and over.

    Bad logic.

    It makes no sense at all. Because if someone where to toot their own horn over and over, then they'd be told

    "Well it's not like you've done something you haven't done before. So show some class and stop bragging."

    You can't win with CB users.

    I actually would have thought most CB members would gravitate more to Android. I guess not.

    I find this to not be a shock. Very few true advancements made, just more "It's bigger, faster, and newer!"

    Even I can't envision getting another Note. The S line isn't that impressive. With them also locking down the software and voiding hardware warranty if any mods are made, that can't help their case.
