At least it doesn't explode.  Unless of course that's a feature you're looking for in a phone.

Actually, the iphones explode all the time.  I forget which model, but one of them was plagued by it really badly.  

 

Apple was top of the line for a couple of years, but samsung has been leading the way for quite a while.  I was simply pointing that fact out.  Facts is facts...

The irony is that technical features do not sell a phone.  Most people have no idea what the difference is between 4G and LTE or 10 Mpix or 12Mpix images (nor can they tell the difference).

 

There hasn't been any real innovation in smartphones for years.  It's all the same crap, just smaller, thinner, or more of this and that.

 

The other thing to take into consideration is market fatigue.  Most PC manufacturers started experiencing this right after the 1990s. People stopped upgrading their PCs because there was very little innovation in the PC market (still hasn't been for the most part).  There was no compelling reason to upgrade.  The smartphone market is now starting to experience fatigue.  As a self-professed nerd, I now skip 3-4 generations of smartphones before upgrading, which means I upgrade every 2-3 years (hopefully longer than that now).

 

Additionally, most people pick a platform and stay there.  The switching costs become greater and greater the more time a user remains on a platform.  And the conversion rate between platforms is becoming smaller and smaller because of these switching costs.

 

And you're going to need to quantify what "leading the way" means.  Leading how? or what?
