Let’s delve just a little bit into the Samsung vs. Apple statistics. Without a doubt, both are incredibly competent companies. Samsung, with its Android operating system, has a more universal layout and a wider range of possibilities. Apple, on the other hand, is known for its exclusivity and design. Apple users have less access to third party features. Nevertheless, the company seems to have a cult following. Up to this day, Apple has sold over 180 million iPhone units all over the world.

Samsung has always been in the lead in terms of sales and number of units shipped. However, since the launch of Apple’s iPhone 6 last year, these figures have dramatically plummeted. A staggering 74.4 million iPhones were sold during the Christmas quarter. In the previous years, the sales of iPhone units gradually went down. It’s a different scenario this year. The iPhone 6 sales are still at its peak and what’s even more menacing to Apple’s rivals is that many more Samsung/Android users have taken the shift to Apple. Needless to say, Apple has really done it this time.

It is truly undeniable how the birth of mobile phones has revolutionized the world’s overall communication channel. Mobile phones have now become even more powerful because of the advancement of the internet. All corners of the globe can now get connected with the presence of these slender handheld devices that have taken the world by storm. It is expected that as more mobile phone innovations come up, the extent of benefits and progressions will multiply tenfold.
