Samsung mobile(+tvs, pc, washer/dryer, refrigerators
) made only 650 million in profit last quarter. Apple crushed Samsung in financials last q.
That definitely proves that the iPhone as a product is superior in sales. Atleast that’s what consumers have shown with their wallets.
For the category Apple sells in, Apple is the summit of Mt Everest. Samsung is Base camp 1. But I am saying the device itself, iPhone, is superior, period.
-Congratulations to Samsung on the S23 Ultra, it has come close to battery charge. Samsung 23 U has a 16% bigger battery than iPhone 14PM. If Apple put a 5000 MAH battery in? LMAO at competition.
-The latest Bionic SOC is a smaller footprint SOC than the latest Snapdragon yet provides 10 to 20% more computing power.
-The testing is there for all to hear. The iPhone 14 PM loudspeaker audio is king.
-Samsung gives 3 years OS support and 1 year of patches. Apple gives 5 years of OS support and 2 years of patches.
-It can go deeper and further underwater. It usually wins the survival drop test.
-It is probably the most findable, when lost, device in history. It is almost impenetrable without authentication.
-It is 50% of the US market yet is less than 10% of the malware.
-Privacy and security of user data, enough said.
-I believe it is the third year in a row iPhone PM wins DisplayMate's best smartphone display.
-It integrates with other Apple products substantially easier than what you can do with competition smartphone. That is quantified.
-It holds its value in the secondary substantially above competition. Even lifetime operating cost and cost per year slants to Apple.
The iPhone has a higher ceiling for advancement due to the customizing of parts. Android doesn't have that level of freedom and likely never will (surprisingly the closest to that may be Xioami). And I could go on...and as anyone who has read my posts here, it would be entirely expected I would go on and on
. This is not to say iPhone wins every single category, it doesn't. Competition has skill and is trying. But iPhone is a superior product, period, full stop. That is easily quantified, see above.
