Recently, Apple and Samsung have been suing the living crap out of each other. Apple’s notorious iPhone has been the king of the smartphone space since 2007. Thank’s to their consumer milking strategy, their pockets kept getting deeper and deeper with each updated model. I, and many tech enthusiasts, completely understand that Apple must meet or break estimated earning each quarter to keep their shareholders happy.

Without getting into an argument over Wall Street, I think their strategy up to now has worked perfectly. It took years for their competitors to catch up and imitate their products. I think many will agree that iOS is getting stale and isn’t exiting as it used to be. Yes, poor us with our First World problems…

Samsung has been throwing upper hooks since the introduction of their Galaxy series of Android handsets. Their specced out phones are ahead of the competition and provide valuable features we have yet to see in the iPhone5. Also Samsung has done an amazing job in marketing and making fun of the iPhone. The following infographic by MBAonline illustrated the statistics behind the Apple and Samsung smartphone war. Enjoy!

  1. The only question I have regarding revenue, employee count and R&D is if the Samsung figures include their entire product line (i.e. televisions, washers and dryers, etc.) or only those markets in which the two companies compete? In my opinion the biggest detriment to Apple in this battle will be the loss of Samsung as a supplier. There is a certain amount of variation in the quality of components provided to Apple by Samsung vs other suppliers (LG, Sharp), notably in SSD performance and display quality in MacBooks and iPad minis. Those Apple products with Samsung components tend to perform slightly better, and I think dropping Samsung will result in an overall degradation of the Apple product line in general, however slight it may be. I’m no expert of course, this is just a casual observation.
