    1) Seems just a TAD bit biased (lol sarcasm)

    2) iPhone info is wrong: says iPhone 5 has iOS 5 (has iOS 6), lists Apple's processor as A6 w/o giving any specs (despite giving actual specs for the Android processors)

    3) On list of top phones per carrier, iPhone isn't mentioned once for any carrier despite it being immensely popular (isn't it the top smartphone for AT&T?)

    4) Praises the Android app market as being awesome, doesn't even acknowledge Apple has an app store...

    5) Rather misleading smartphone market share (groups all Androids together as one share rather than per cellphone maker)

    Overall, it's rather biased and all popular smart phones have the same exact camera specs :D, and that Amazon needs to learn the difference between an OS and a phone (protip: iPhone is a phone, Android is an OS)

    of course it's slanted, they're in competition with Apple and use Android

    This is no surprise. Carriers and companies hate the iPhone. Walk into a VZW or AT&T store and say that you think you want an iPhone. You'll walk out with some crappy Android phone because the "iPhone can't download apps for free, they all cost." Apple keeps all profits and therefore there is no commission made from an iPhone sale. Amazon is in competition with Apple just like Samsung. This is no different then Samesung's "It doesn't take a genius..." Ad

    My friend went to the Verizon store to get a new phone, he asked about the iPhone, and they said they only had the iPhone 4/4S, and they said it's a downgrade compared to Androids, so he walked out with a Droid or whatever the Motorola phone is.

    And Amazon has misrepresented Apple's products! They must put a link on their page apologizing, and if it's at the bottom, that's no good!

    I love my iPhone but definitely miss several features about my previous Android.

    2. Apple doesn't give specs for the A6. Apple doesn't even mention dual core anywhere on http://www.apple.com/iphone/specs.html or http://www.apple.com/iphone/features/ .

    3. You realize that that is a list of best-selling phones on Amazon Wireless. Amazon doesn't sell the iPhone.

    5. The comparison page is for iPhone vs Android devices. Makes perfect sense for that graph to be there.


    A 4s is a downgrade from current Android devices. If they didn't have the 5 in stock (which given the current stock situation, is highly possible), an Android device is highly competitive and can easily be seen as a better device.

    How have they misrepresented Apple? Everything is truthful that I can see.

    It really seems like you are biased towards Apple and the iPhone.

    Android fans waging desperate war against mostly non-caring iPhone owners. Reminds me of mac vs pc days.

    This. Ty has been spot on lately.

    Android users so desperate to be "better" than iPhone that they literally try to point out anything (no matter how useless... like banging phones together to share playlistls) in order to prove it.

    iPhone users don't care. No point in moving to an inferior product when you have one that does everything quite well already. Sure, there may be a handful of things that are cool about Android A or Android B (C,D,E,F,G releasing next week might be ok too), but it will never be the overall package that is the iPhone.

    If it weren't for the iPhone I may own a Droid. Nothing wrong with them, they just happen to be inferior to what's already out there and what most people have already found works exceptionally well for them. Even the "problems" with the 5 have been largely OCD cosmetic related, not "functionality" problems (maps not withstanding... and I haven't a single issue ever and happen to like Apples turn by turn quite a bit more).

    They can take all the pot shots they want. Alot like Mac vs. PC, Android phones have fallen into the "not-as-cool" category and feel the need to try anything to catch up (but the race is already run).

    I laugh because android owners have to talk down to an iPhone in order To feel better about themselves.

    That's the joke...

    Amazon cherry picked some of their facts,
    Apple did the same thing with the UK case link and they got penalized...

    Amazon is doing it because they have the choice.

    Apple got penalized because they lost a case in court. There is a big difference.
