The fact is that the only market where the iPhone is number 1 is in the US last I saw. In every other market it's either number 2 or 3.

or in other words - iPhone leads in only market where true price of phones is mostly hidden.

Dat Android...

 

But there's probably more hope for Windows Phone in that market than there is for iPhones.

I don't think Apple was in a race to win in all of these markets. A $50 iPhone would drastically change the numbers in all of these markets. I don't Apple is interested in that.

I guess selling phones in Brasil is just a hobby for Apple.

For those pointing to Androids share it's hard to argue with their volume, for every one Lumia phone theres at least 10 android phones on sale. MS should give the OS out to OEMs for cheaper or free and get more volume out there, if that can happen then we'll see how far it can really go. As long as there's a huge difference in volume of handsets being pumped out then Android will always have the lead.

I guess I better sell my iPhone and get a Windows Phone since they are more popular in Brazil, lol. Seriously though, I am intrigued with Windows Phones/Tablets, I just don't think they have the apps to compete with iOS. I don't know if apps are limited outside the US or what. Virtually everywhere I go, someone has an iPhone in their hand.

Great marketing,

 

I have an S4 and love it but bought 2 windows phones for my kids and they are actually pretty cool.

Yeah I've played with an S4 in store and it's a great device. I also had a Nexus 4 for about a year and  Lumia Windows Phone for a short time. Both were great devices but the whole iPhone ecosystem was just best for me. Like you said though, I guess it's how it's marketed.

The only people i know with iPhones are the ones that don't really know anything about tech. They tend to just buy whatever is popular and they're a little on the shallow side. I do however only know about 3 people with Windows Phones, and while they like them, I think android will be ruling the roost for quite some time

I think it's more a factor of the price sensitivity of the markets. Same with Macs that have a marketshare of ~15% in the U.S iirc...which I find quite incredible considering the average selling price compared to PCs in general.
