Android OEMs can’t compete with Apple head-on. Android is showing some encouraging signs, which might eventually dislodge the iPhone-maker’s position in the market, but it’s going to take a company like Google to do it. Apple’s quarterly earnings release for the last fiscal quarter shows us why.
Apple released the new and hotly anticipated iPhone X (or 10) in 2017. It was priced at $999 for 64 GB and $1149 for 256 GB of storage and had two new attention-grabbing features: a much bigger new OLED screen, and FaceID, vastly improved facial recognition. It was the first significant change to an iPhone since 2015, and it underwhelmed many — including us.
