Yankee Group: Apple iPhone to pick up U.S. market share in 2013
posted by Alan F. / Mar 19, 2013, 10:47 PM
phone would be called the Samsung Galaxy S IIIS. Additionally, in its March 2013 consumer survey, only 15% of those who responded said that they planned on purchasing a Samsung phone in the next 6 months compared with the 40% who said that they are planning on buying an Apple iPhone sometime in the next 6 months. The research firm also notes that Samsung does not seem to be able to command the same brand loyalty as Apple. In another survey, 61% of Samsung owners plan on buying another Samsung device for their next smartphone while 85% of current Apple owners plan on buying another iPhone when the time comes for the purchase of a new phone.

Yes, and I feel rediculous about the term "Galay SIIIs". In fact yhere are more differences of S4 over S3 than iPhone 5 over iPhone 4s. So why they don't call iPhone 5 as iPhone 4s plus or iPhone 4s' ? Then how can this iPhone4s' have a bigger marketshare?

Idea was to get ppl from s2 and from other manufacturers to come to samsung not for s3 owners to go to s4...have you seen ces 2013 if not youtube samsung 2013 ces. I understand s4 doesnt live up to the hype since when dis any phone ever did...Sammy has a launch in may than in october for n3 than Galaxy Q next year

The S4 is a slight bump to the S3. Much like the 4s to the 5. But the article is right, I don't think Samsung has the same dedicated fanbase that Apple does. AppleInsider is a great Apple news site though it has some pretty rabid fanboys that reside there.

I find it funny how the iPhone is rated 9/10 yet has more cons than most android phones No Sd Card slot No HD screen No removable battery Must have unique Proprietary USB connector Small screen Huge bezel I haven't even mention the software limits

So, maybe next time Samsung should make the phone in a triangular shape with 1000 PPI and an 80 map camera front and back with 10GB of RAM? Must be nice for a company to make slight changes to its flagship model, 3 years straight, and still sell it (talking about Apple)....only in America can this happen

Oh come on now...Another example of Apple pulling out one of their marketing companies from their back pocket, trying to convince you that the information is true & non-bias. If Apple isn't trying to sue the competition, their getting their back pocket media companies to write up the smear campaigns instead of listening to what consumer want on their mobile devices. Even the most dedicated Apple fans will look to the competition for their next device if you fail to address IOS short comings (no SD, NFC, removable battery, sharing between devices, limited video formats, tied to itunes for basic file transfer, etc...) that have been around for years.. Apple users will wake up eventually and ask more of their company.
