You might consider that you care too much about something as unimportant as a phone.

Of what importance is it to you whether others have a particular phone?

In short...what possible difference does it make which phone somebody uses.

Apple has about a 40% market share in the US, Samsung has about 24%, HTC has about 7%, Motorola has about 7% and LG has about 7%.

By the numbers Android phones have a larger chunk of the market, but Apple has the largest chunk of any one manufacturer. These numbers are in the US. Worldwide, Android has nearly 80% market share.

Maybe iPhone owners enjoy flashing their phones and waving them around for everyone to see?* :eek:

8 out of the last 10 people who passed me in the hallway at my school had an iphone. Its easy to use and people like it, and if you have android you feel left out from emojis and groupchats.

I'm not sure what you're talking about. Android phones outsell iPhones worldwide. The US is just a fraction of the worldwide market.

Additionally "Droid" isn't saying anything. You posted a picture of a guy holding Samsung phones.

Is competition a bad thing? Without it, we may not even have an App store or WALLPAPERS THAT CAN BE CHANGED. ;)

Would wide phones with Android hold the majority of the market share. I don't think thats the case in the states. I'm assuming from your English you are not in the US so what country are you seeing predominately iPhones?

edit : I apologize if you are a native english speaker, wasn't till I reread that I realized that could be an insult.

Why do people use iPhone's?

Because they just "iWork"?

Okay bad joke, but what does it matter what everyone carries? In my area, most of the teens have iPhones because they are the cool hipster thing to have. Plus, you don't want to miss out on those iMessage groups and the emojis. I, on the other hand, and like many people, carry them because they like it and it does what they want.

When welfare recipients have the iPhone 5s, walmart shoppers, homeless people, you know the 'special' factor is long, long gone.

Or people with iPhones actually use their phones? My mom has an Android (Samsung something) and doesn't know how or even care about using it.

Why Everywhere-Everyone Using Iphone ???
First of all, everyone isn't as indicated above. Second, iPhone users aren't all identical and have various reasons.

Respect doesn't come from things that you buy. You earn respect. If you want exclusivity then don't go looking for it in a mass produced product.

but droid still running their mouth like they are number # 1 ...
Of course they are. What business goes around marketing their product as inferior? :rolleyes:

I'm still baffled that people post such questions. Who really cares in the first place. I buy because I want this manufacture over androids. It's that simple

I think it's something like 15% of iPhones are sold direct from Apple. The remaining 85% are sold through various other retailers and a lot of folks never step foot in an Apple store.

Doesn't that make sense though? Apple store sells MUCH more then just iPhones in there. I bought my iMac, AppleTV, and Airport Extreme from an apple store. The competition doesn't really have a market for those things.

If there was an HTC store what would they have in it? 3 phones and a tablet? Be kind of silly to have a store front for that.

Motorola could have 4 phones and a million dollar antenna array for radio broadcast?

Samsung is the only one that might be able to pull it off but even then they would have a small mobile section and the rest would be Televisions, blu ray players, etc etc....

And 500 Apple store MAY sound like a lot in the US but its not. Many states don't even have one so its hours of driving. Plus you kind of debunked your original topic, 100 retail stores outside the US? Shows you how things are different in other parts of the world.
