    Starting to think that these samsung articles are bs. Analyst have failed miserably trying to guess the number of iPhones sold and we are suppose to trust these numbers? They are supposedly selling all these phones but the web traffic and profit tells a different story. Didn't they just release the iphone killer a few weeks ago?

    Web traffic is more? I am not surprise as safari keeps reloading tabs pages resulting in 5 times more page hit for a single page.

    None of those companies depend on third party developers for their products.  Apple does.  If marketshare drops too low, it's the '90s all over again.

    Either Samsung undercharges or Apple overcharges- What is it?

    If anything, it's Sammy sells cheap low margin crap.

    iOS apps can run on iPads so iPhone market share by itself under counts the entire iOS population.

    Do we HAVE TO say this EVERY. SINGLE. THREAD?!  iOS users spend more money on apps than Android users do.  The math just isn't that complicated, really.

    No. They don’t. At all.

    That's pretty funny.

     

    And wasn't it just last year that Research firm Strategy Analytics said that "Samsung's operating profit for its handset division stood at $5.2 billion in the second quarter, topping Apple's estimated iPhone profit of $4.6 billion. This marked the first time the Korean firm has overtaken its U.S. rival."

     

    Furthermore these two companies have completely different business models and operations. For one Samsung is completely vertically integrated. They don't have an app store, but make money every time an iPhone is sold due to components and fabrication sourcing. They don't work alike, don't market alike, don't chase market share alike, don't generate revenue alike.

     

    Trying to draw parallels and direct comparisons in how money is made and impacts the organization is kind of futile. Great for internet banter, but not much else.
