Apple Vs Samsung

Apple isn’t even Samsung’s biggest nightmare

Apple isn’t even Samsung’s biggest nightmare

Samsung’s holiday quarter wasn’t as devastating as the previous quarter, which saw the company’s profit plummet 60% on-year, but the company’s fourth-quarter report still showed steep declines in profit and revenue as Samsung continues its struggle to steady the ship. The South Korean giant has enjoyed explosive growth over the past couple of years, but pressure from Apple at the high end and from dirt-cheap Android phone makers at the low end has created a puzzle that Samsung can’t quite seem to piece together yet.

There is no question that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus comprise a terrifying nightmare for Samsung, which has seen its high-end phone sales dwindle since the phones were released this past September. But as it turns out, Samsung’s biggest headache may lie elsewhere. More →

Sundance Tangerine Movie iPhone 5s

Surprise hit movie from Sundance was shot entirely on an iPhone

Surprise hit movie from Sundance was shot entirely on an iPhone

To prove how insanely dependable the iPhone 5s’ camera is, Apple shot entire commercials using the device in early 2014 before using Macs to edit the raw footage. While that was a marketing stunt, it doesn’t mean the iPhone can’t be used to shoot professional video, and one filmmaker proved just that at the Sundance Film Festival. More →

Is this Apple’s secret weapon that could force Android users to buy an iPhone?

Is this Apple’s secret weapon that could force Android users to buy an iPhone?

There are many reasons why Android users switch to iPhone, and vice-versa, but Apple may have a secret (or not-so-secret) weapon that could pressure some Android fans to considering a move to the other side. No, it’s not Apple Pay, an exclusive iPhone 6 feature that’s heavily marketed by various banks in the U.S., further helping Apple market its 2014 iPhones. It’s actually a stock iOS app that has been hiding in plain sight for years. More →

Tim Cook confirms that the iPhone 6 is a nightmare for Android

You might think of iPhone owners as an insular crowd, constantly upgrading from one device to the next, year after year, but Tim Cook says that’s not the case. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Cook said that fewer than 15% of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sales came from customers upgrading from another iPhone.

Instead, a majority of them switched from Android. More →

Get ready, Apple fans: Benchmarks leak for iPhone 6 running iOS 9

There are two times of the year that are the most exciting for enthusiastic Apple fans. The first comes in June, when Apple uses its annual Worldwide Developers Conference each year to debut a brand new version of its iOS platform. The second, of course, is in the late summer or early fall, when Apple releases iOS alongside at least one new iPhone model — though moving forward, we’re likely looking at two or more new iPhone models each year.

It’s still only January, but Apple is already hard at work on iOS 9, which is expected to include some major enhancements. Now, benchmark test results from an iPhone 6 running an early version of the next-generation software have been revealed for the first time. More →

Who won the holiday quarter, Apple or Samsung?

Fierce rivals but close business partners Apple and Samsung squared off this week in one more episode of their massive duel, as each company reported financial results for the Christmas quarter. Apple was expected to post stellar results and record iPhone sales (which it did), with Samsung supposed to acknowledge yet another quarterly loss (which it did). Most interestingly though, some people said Apple might overtake Samsung as the world’s top smartphone vendor for the quarter, something that hasn’t happened in years. More →
