Oct. 30 (Bloomberg) -- On today's "Global Outlook," Bloomberg’s Emily Chang talks with Baidu CEO Robin Li about Apple's China strategy. They speak on Bloomberg Television's "Street Smart." (Source: Bloomberg)

Baidu, it is often called the google of china and is the world's fifth most visited website.

Bloomberg said down with an exclusive conversation with its founder.

She asked the tech executive what he thought of apple's tim cook.

He is very reasonable, smart, and he understands the chinese market much better than many other of the u.s. internet company leaders.

How does he compare to steve jobs?

I don't know.

I never met jeeps -- steve jobs before.

But from the media, he is very different.

He has a very strong feeling on all kinds of things.

He doesn't care too much about the market.

Tim cook is more often the typical ceo.

China is a big market.

Apple is losing market share in china.

Why do you think that is?

That also has to do with the mechanics of 15 -- one size fits all.

Chinese characters are very different from english.

You need a method that is changing to do that.

Apple doesn't have a good one and they do not allow them in their apple store.

The chinese users are not so pleased about the iphone.

There is room for improvement.

What don't they like?

They don't like the smaller screen compared to the samsung phone.

It ought like the fact that they cannot -- they do not like the fact that they cannot download their own imaging.

The needs are chinese specific that may not be unavailable on the ios system.

Is apple not as cool in china as it once was?

Apple is still very cool.

They have a very loyal following.

A lot of people, including my wife, use apple.

For for me, i'm different.

I need to know the true market.

Android has a much larger market share in china.

I need to know how the average mobile phone user feels.

So i use an android phone.

The galaxy e -- the galaxy?
