Samsung and htc have followed trends that apple started but in most areas have surpassed apple. People who are just following fashion go for the brand but people who know there tech do think about specs.
There is no doubt that apple changed the market with the iPhone but unless apple come up with a significant improvement over the 4s they will be left behind the likes of Samsung or HTC
I still think it's an unfair comparison......Android is the OS for many devices but iOS is for just one, so combining the hardware of several phones to say Android is better is wrong.
Also when I ask what is better about Android all I hear is custom options and widgets ...wow!
I still don't see how Apple are being left behind by Samsung or HTC. Extra megapixels on a camera or larger screen doesn't mean that they are way ahead.
Would not agree that people have replaced cameras with their phones, go to any tourist attraction and people are using compact & dslr cameras rather than phones. Camera phones are a lot better than they used to be but are not there yet!
Also, those people who are just following fashion are very very sizeable and I would argue outnumber 'people who know their tech' and would not know what A5 chip is or what dual/quad core is.
Don't see how people can say that Apple are way behind as the differences are marginal. Samsung has faster processor whilst iPhone has higher resolution screen. Screen size is a personal choice.
At the end of the day they are all good phones and consumers have a great choice.
I just hate Android users saying that Apple are being left behind based on small differences and not knowing what their next product will be.
