Apple is making more money then Samsung, by a far margin. We are talking Billions here, and it's not really even close. Apple is clocking in 14 billion in profits per quarter, and "stable" while Samsung is dropping and have been dropping since the beginning of 2013.

Apple also spends far less on marketing then Samsung, please stop comparing Samsung to apple. It's really an insult to Apple. Apple is also one of the most important companies on the planet. They are right up there with Coke and British Petroleum

someone said that apple is making more profit on the phones than samsung, well that could be true, but isn't that a bad thing, they have a higher profit margin, you pay more just so they can make more money. And apple is not investing in the right things, they focus on the mechanical aspects of the phone (which i can admit is very nice) but they should focus more on the hw/sw

Even in Korea, in the more expensive restaurants you see mostly iPhones.

Not Apple: iPhone,

Apple is second worlwide after samsung, but this wasnt about company, this was about best selling phone where Apple always going to be number one by big margin.

i definitely think this is accurate, for example, I'm in NZ, and in NZ and Australia, you'd find more people with iPhones than androids, i know that i certainly see multiple iPhones everyday. On a side note, its funny that a 3 yr old iPhone (4S) is beating the Galaxy S5. thats not a good look on any sort of poll, international or not!

the article is incomplete/missleading what markets were analyzed usa or worldwide, i don't think apple is first worldwide, in europe you rarely see an apple phone, almost everybody here has android phone (most of it is samsung). so what is the purpose of this and similar articles where the information presented is incomplete or missleading or clearly byased.
