Apple iPhone 5s is Still World’s Top-Selling Smartphone

In spite of the growing dominance of the Android OS, Apple Inc. continues to maintain a healthy lead in the world of Smartphones. According to recent reports, the launch of the iPhone smartphones helped propel Apple to the top in the market. With a figure of 42% of Apple smartphones owned in the U.S. in the 4th quarter of 2013, it leads samsung’s 26% share.

As the giant technology firms Apple and Samsung grew, significant losses were seen by competing smartphone makers like Motorola, HTC and BlackBerry. Only LG Inc. seemed to slightly gain an edge, but figures indicate that it still controls less than 10 percent of the market. In terms of operating system, BlackBerry grabbed a 3.4% share in the market and remained slightly ahead of Microsoft Corporation’s Windows OS, which had a 3.1% share in the market.

“The only way for manufacturers to pull ahead in this new mobile landscape is to ensure they are able to meet the upgrade pace and recover the value of existing or old devices, creating stickiness between them and the consumer,” opined by Bashar Nejdawi, president of Ingram Micro North America Mobility.

Bolstered by the release of the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C models, Apple’s improved numbers won’t come as much of a surprise to those who followed Apple’s recent earnings report, which revealed that the company broke a sales record last year, selling 51 million iPhones in the first quarter alone.

What’s Cooking in Apple’s Labs – Get Insights into the Latest iPhone 6 Plans

Apple is a company reputed for its innovative technologies and out of the box ideas. It has continued to impress millions and millions of people worldwide, and strives to continue exceeding expectations in times to come. In an attempt to go above and beyond, Apple is now rumored to be working on a curved screen model design for its new smart phone. Work on the new smart phone is scheduled to begin in the second half of next year, with a likely release planned for the third quarter.

Apart from the curved screen, another feature that is generating raves is the better quality touch screen sensor. This better touch screen sensor will introduce fine pressure sensitivity for the devices that are going to be launched thereafter. Apple is the forerunner when it comes to technological advancements and delivers outstanding innovations always.

Apple is planning to launch not one, but two iPhones in 2014. The same was done in 2013 with iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, so the idea that Apple could think of doing something similar in the future has a great probability. Retaining iPhone 5c as its third budget device would also allow it to go ahead with their plan without adding crazy complexity to its product lineup. The two major points that the new phone is set to cover includes a bigger screen size and sensors. However, for Apple fan boys who are quite content with the screen size, the better screen sensors are a major draw. The pressure sensitivity will promise a finer experience with drawing and handwriting applications, and make them a lot better. The new phone can become a rage with professionals as an artistic device if such features are introduced. In addition to that, it would help people jot notes, doodle, and perform minor photograph touch-ups.

It is still early to make any kind of predictions or form judgments about the likely accuracy of these claims, but trusted sources have given this rumor some weight. Apple is soon joining the league of bigger screened phones, but curved glass phones are sure to be a major draw for customers. We will need to wait and watch with the progress with baited breath for the next iPhone miracle product. Read more at

The Much Anticipated Phone of the Year Has Finally Arrived – SAMSUNG Galaxy S IV

It was a great day in New York. This day was 14th March 2013, when Samsung introduced its latest technological marvel, the Samsung Galaxy S IV. The event was a huge hit. Thousands of people were entertained by a live orchestra. Samsung invited seventeen actors to display the amazing features of this phone in a series of theatrically scripted performances.

Considering the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, we knew that the S4 wasn’t going to be small. With dimensions of 69.8mm x 136.6mm and 7.9mm thick, it’s surprisingly thinner than the S3 and feels far from big to hold. Weighing it at 130g, it’s heavier than the iPhone 5 (112g) and lighter than Sony Xperia Z (146g). But, the extra heft of Samsung Galaxy S4 gives a reassuring feel in the hand. Read more at (

Some of the great features in Samsung’s Galaxy S4 are:

  • A big 5-inch HD screen with 440 PPI
  • A 13-megapixel rear camera and a front-facing 2-megapixels camera, including new features such as Dual shot and Drama Shot.
  • Exynos OCTO 1.6 Ghz processor with 2 GB RAM

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is the latest innovation from Samsung. Samsung has managed to build a bigger 5 inch HD screen into a body slightly smaller than its previous Galaxy S3 phone. The Galaxy S4 has certain features that will give tough competition to Blackberry as well. This new Flagship phone from Samsung has all the required specifications that can give tough competition to Apple’s iPhone 5 and could easily become the king of all the Android powered Smartphones.

Android – Leading the Smartphone App. World

In the recently conducted 4-day Mobile World Congress 2013, it was clear to all the Smartphone developing industries that this is going to be a highly competitive year for them. With almost every Smartphone being technically flawless, the pressure falls to the application developers. The latest ABI Research predicts that Smartphone app downloads would reach around 56 billion in 2013. According to the research data:

  • Android’ leads with its 58 percent share in the app world.
  • In second place, there is ‘iOS’ which has a share of 33 percent.
  • Windows phone has secured around a 4 percent share.
  • And finally, BlackBerry is at 3 percent.

ABI also predicts a growing number of Smartphone-focused developers will adopt an Android-first strategy within the year due to the platform’s “vast installed base and the generally improved conditions in app building.” This is something that has been widely trumpeted for a while now but has yet to surface given Google’s fragmentation problem.

We can assume that Google will actually benefit from Android being the front runner in app development. Android’s open design and easily re-programmable firmware has prompted the app developers to work more extensively towards customized apps. It has provided the developers an open ground to work on. They can make their customers a more user friendly interface which can be restructured and upgraded any time. This kind of flexibility from Android has attracted a large number of people. Thus, making the Android powered Smartphone a success.
