I’m an iOS user but Apple will never be the dominant phone vendor. The average selling price of an Android phone is $248. The cheapest iPhone is $475. Apple doesn’t have the stomach to compete on price and the vast majority of consumers aren’t going to pay Apple prices.

If people cared about privacy, the majority of them wouldn’t be on Facebook. They know that FB tracks them and advertises based on the data they collect.

iPhone's user interface is way more visually appealing.

You can also get an iPhone 8 on ebay for $200. So you can get the best of both worlds of price & UI.

Perhaps in US, but in the majority of regions where low end Android phones are popular even used iPhones are way more expensive.
