Apple Gains on Samsung in US


The iPhone 5S and 5C launch certainly helped with those gains, but that’s kind of the point of launching new products. And as discussed before, Samsung has been buying market share, which isn’t a sustainable business model.

Also, I’ve played with Samsung’s TouchWhiz interface enough to know that it’s a step above Good Enough, but I’ve also held their hardware in my hand enough to know it’s mostly cheap-feeling craptaculence. That’s no way to gain customer loyalty, even if low prices can get customers to take a look and big spiffs can get salespeople to close the deal.
