Samsung Overtakes Apple's Smartphone Profit in China

Apple has been left behind biting the dust. It is no more the top brand the world chooses to adopt. Instead Samsung has taken over and is expanding with the passage of time. While the 2nd Quarter profits for Samsung were $5.2 billion, Apple’s revenues stood at $4.6 billion. The difference is as clear as the light of day.

Part of the reason for Samsung’s growth is the large volumes, high overall prices and stringent cost restrictions it has implemented. The rivalry between Apple and Samsung has proved irksome to the former since it is paying the price now. A radical change in tactics may be precisely what Apple needs. Apple has to look towards what the specific demand is and act accordingly.

The two companies have philosophies that are diametrically opposed. Apple has a Californian freedom loving image of hip sophistication. Meanwhile, Samsung has a paternalistic work ethic oriented culture of productivity. Samsung jam-packs its mobile devices with hundreds of features and that aspect attracts the Chinese.

But Apple is not into all that unnecessary stuff so it has lost on this front. With its Galaxy S4, Samsung has just become the global leader in smart phones. After four years as a dominant player in the field, Apple has lost its edge and retreated to allow Samsung to take its position as #1 on the scene.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
