That strongly suggests that Android makers know there is a huge chunk of the market that is price-sensitive on phones. Price isn’t an exact proxy for consumer income of course. Some people who buy a $200 phone can afford a $400 but choose the cheaper one anyway. Nevertheless, it is also true that anyone who buys an Apple phone at $400-plus can also afford a $200 handsetbut chooses not to. Meanwhile,anyone who can afford onlya $200 phone cannot, by definition, buy an Apple phone. Those people are “Android people,” whether they like it or not. Don’t assume this is just a few poor people skewing Android’s numbers, by the way.
