For what it’s worth, when I was in Sri Lanka and Malaysia, virtually every adult layperson had a smartphone (and it was ethnic Buddhists whom I was around most often), and very rarely did you see an Apple product. There were many pre-smartphone flip-phones still in use as well.
You know how Apple products tend to cost about 40% more than similarly-powered Android or Windows devices? Well, that 40% might be very easily affordable to you in the First World, dear reader, but that 40% is a huge difference, economically, in countries like Sri Lanka.
I talked to a Sri Lankan today, who told me that Sri Lankans make a median yearly income of $4000 CAN, whereas a median income of a Canadian is like $39,000 CAN. That’s a 10x difference! An extra $200-$700 spent just to have that glowing Apple on the back of the smartphone is a lot of money there.
My point is that in ethnic Asian Buddhist countries, where vast numbers of potential SC visitors exist, Apple shrinks to a tiny, tiny minority there (even though you see iPhones, etc. all over the place in the First World). Asia is Android-Land, majorly. See the green areas, below:
