With just two new iPhone models, Apple catapults past Samsung in smartphone sales

Apple doesn’t need to make the iPhone any thinner

Apple doesn’t need to make the iPhone any thinner

Apple’s ability to make new generations of the iPhone lighter and thinner is very impressive but we may have reached a point where making the device thinner isn’t just unnecessary but also counterproductive. A new HuffPost/YouGov poll of over 1,000 adults that incudes 570 smartphone users shows that 73% of respondents would rather have a thicker phone with better battery life than a thinner phone with weaker battery life. In contrast, a mere 12% said they wanted a thinner smartphone while 15% said they weren’t sure. In other words, the benefits from making smartphones thinner at this point in the game seem to be, well, slim. More →

Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6: An early look at the battle of the sixes

Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6: An early look at the battle of the sixes

By on March 2, 2015 at 1:31 PM.

We’re only in day 1 of the annual Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain, but it looks as though Samsung has already stolen the show. Samsung and HTC both announced stunning new flagship smartphones during separate press conferences on Sunday, but one succeeded in reinventing itself while the other showed off an iterative update that was decidedly far less exciting.

Where Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 and of the Galaxy S6 edge are concerned, Samsung will really only have one competitor when it comes to flagship smartphone sales, and that’s the iPhone 6; simply put, no other company can afford to go up against Samsung’s multi-billion dollar marketing and advertising budget.

So, how do Samsung’s new flagship phones stack up against Apple’s iPhone 6? More →

Galaxy S6 Vs iPhone 6

The last word: Is the Galaxy S6 an iPhone clone?

The last word: Is the Galaxy S6 an iPhone clone?

By on March 2, 2015 at 10:41 AM.

Ahead of Sunday’s huge Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge unveiling at the annual Mobile World Congress trade show in Spain, there was a lot of chatter focused on similarities between the Galaxy S6 we saw in leaks and Apple’s iPhone 6. Many people suggested that Samsung was getting ready to copy the iPhone once again with its new flagship phones — in some ways of course, that would be a good thing — and leaked images of handset prototypes certainly made it appear as though that would be the case.

Now that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are official and we have spent some time with both new models, it’s time to determine once and for all whether or not Samsung’s latest and greatest is the blatant iPhone ripoff many Apple fans have said it is. More →

Is the Galaxy S6 really an iPhone ripoff? Leaked comparison photo lets you be the judge

Samsung has managed to make quite a name for itself over the years — in more ways than one. The company practically came from out of nowhere and skyrocketed to the top of the smartphone market in just a few short years, quickly becoming the No. 1 vendor in the world by shipment volume. Of course, the company borrowed a lot from Apple along the way, and it made a reputation for itself as a copycat as a result.

Companies borrow from each other all the time, of course, but Samsung was probably a bit more blatant about it than it should have been — see this secret 132-page guide to copying the iPhone that Samsung made back in 2010 for an example.

And now, it looks like Samsung might be back to its old tricks with the upcoming new Galaxy S6. More →
