Why do people buy iPhone? Why do you want to buy iPhone? That is a simple question to show off or to show everybody that you’re able to own an iPhone. Well, we can answer that we want to buy iPhone because its features and design, right? WRONG! In fact, you still can get a better feature from a cheaper phone, like Nokia C5. To get it clear, let’s take a look at their comparison below.

After watching the table, comes question. So, why people still buying iPhone, when they can buy Nokia C5 with better features? The answer is: because the iPhone’s marketer is GOOD! The way they give the service to the customers, the way they promote, the way they introduce iPhone, is just brilliant. You see, because of these brilliant marketers, iPhone can beat Nokia in the market. Hail marketing, without marketing iPhone won’t survive and Nokia will be the ‘king’. How the marketers do such a brilliant action in the market? Well, you can find the answer in the marketing class.

But still, be smart in buying gadget okay? See for the best features with the lowest price, except if you’re a type of gadget-show-off guy iPhone is just fine for you.
