Apple Exactly five years ago today, Apple officially released its entry into the mobile phone market, the iPhone. Immediately loved by customers the world over, ridiculed by the competition, and, in my book, not particularly innovative feature-wise, it changed the mobile phone industry virtually overnight. Love the iPhone or hate the iPhone, its industry-changing impact is evident.

Android is not a phone, it is an OS. By your own metric, the iPhone is generally and in most geographies the "best" smartphone. At best, in most geographies, there is only 1 phone that remotely approaches the iPhone (the latest and greatest Samsung Galaxy) and it will generally only outsell the iPhone for a few months of its initial availability.
