Chinese Customers Getting Tired of the iPhone
This article reports that the iPhone is losing ground in China. Samsung’s SIII and HTC’s One X are currently outselling because people like their bigger screens, better cameras and the apps becoming pretty good. Customers are also getting tired of the design:
“To put it plainly, consumers are getting a little bit tired of the look of the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S.”
It seems that iPhone is losing its status and that customers will not keep waiting forever for the iPhone 5. The future will show whether the iPhone 5 can fight back, armed with Siri that can communicate in Chinese, Apple will have a good chance.
However, Chinese electronics companies and some factories producing non-branded Android devices are catching up with their highly improved low cost alternatives.
