Samsung wants to know what makes Apple iPhone buyers tick

0. phoneArena posted on 24 Sep 2013, 00:42

From the very first ad for the Samsung Galaxy S II that introduced us to the barista, it was obvious that Sammy had something special going on with these ads; and that very first ad introduced a put down line so glorious that Samsung later preserved it on a t-shirt which it gave away as a contest prize...

"they set up camera crews outside the Apple Store"
Makes it easier to copy, i guess.

I always found the idea of a hamster running on a wheel inside an Apple fanboy's head entertaining.

You sound like a 13 yo. I'm an Apple fan (who appreciates technology and yes, I do think Apple is no longer innovative) , but I will never stand on that line for hours or days. If you know anything about business, you will know that you will always wanna know what makes your competitors and their consumers tick. This way, you will come up with a product/service or add something to your existing product/service to attract those consumers. It's amazing how we love technology here but understand nothing how how the business world works, which sometimes makes us look like idiots.

Most of the people are either employees of apple from cali or paid by Apple to have pal stand in line just so they can build a hype

It is true though! In what history in tech, that why would people line up for a 2 years old same design, outdated features, along with closed OS? Consumers ain't that dimwits! Even all of Songs products are much better than Apples products! Let alone in no history consumers have lined up for what, this garbage! Do you call this state of the art product? ™

Apple designed it and Samsung made it ... so what's the problem?
All companies are giving and taking its just business.
I just hope you didn’t mean that Samsung is behind the whole A7 chip idea for Apple...

Samsung it's just manufacturing, Apple designed and architecture there Soc. Samsung manufacturing cellphones internal hardware for ages, even though Nokia, BB and Sony dealing with Samsung for there smart phones hardware, i remember when i used to own the nokia N900 4 yrs ago the whole phone made in Korea!

I have a Samsung Washer, Dryer, Refrigerator, Microwave, and Dishwasher. I love the WAsher and dryer. Awesome. But the Microwave has a short electrical line connecting to the door. It's a year old. The Dishwasher hasn't worked right since day one. It's not good. The refrigerator is OK. It's had a few problems. Nothing major but it should be better for it's cost.
I also have 3 Samsung TVs. All fantastic. Love them. But, I just bought a Sharp Aquos to replace one of them. It had a screen issue right out of the box. Once it's fixed/replaced we'll see if it was a good idea to move away from Samsung TVs or not. But, I'll lever buy another Samsung kitchen appliance.

Samsung should try to make good phones.. Features are not necessary. No one uses that... Good phones without cheating ( benchmark)

A lot of people use most of those features, stop consoling yourself cos iOS cannot do anything, sales says otherwise talking about good phones, and there's nothing like cheating in benchmark if you cared to educate yourself as other apps use the GPU in same speed. I pray iSh33ps learn better technologies than rely on bullsh*t marketing

Since Samsung pretty much makes everything in the iphone except the apple logo, you're pretty much screwed. "Features are not necessary." Thanks for admitting that features don't matter....a grid of icons is all you need. That whole "IR blaster" remote control thing is a useless fad. I like walking up to the TV to change the channel...exercise.

The truth reveals it's ugly OS again i see. I just don't get the denial of ifans. Lol it's like you have to tie them down and compare devices and force them to see which is more functional.
