Samsung fights back against the iPhone 6 Plus with a more powerful Galaxy Note 4

It’s a matter of opinion as to which 2014 phablet is the best, but American consumers so far have made it clear that they prefer the iPhone 6 Plus over the Galaxy Note 4 with their wallets. Based on the most recent and comprehensive data, the iPhone 6 Plus accounted for 41% of all phablet sales in the U.S. during the three-month period ending on October 14th.

Apple has taken a huge lead out of the gate, but a report from SamMobile indicates that Samsung might be preparing a counterattack. More →
