Do you own an Apple or Samsung smartphone, and where are you located?

Rajaa Chowdhury November 28, 2012

I always feel that Apple is popular and leading in the USA while Samsung is faring better internationally. Therefore, I am asking you to give your opinion and also mention your nationality so that I can match up to see if my perception is right or wrong.

Please state why you have made your current and whether you have switched from iOS or Android in the past!

    I'm using Samsung Galaxy S2 in bangladesh because you already know it uses Android OS which provide more facilities. Android is quite similar to PC where we can customize our phone. File transfer is hassle free which isn't in Apple how far I know. Android cell phone are more powerful than apple though they lack in terms of graphics quality. My smartphone is doing great for me......

    Although,I didn't have any smartphone,my friend has two Android phone and a Android tablet.In India,although even if people can afford to buy iPhone but the less stock prohibits it from growing it.

      Yea true, as Apple really do not have a official channel for iPhones as they have for other offerings. They have a half-baked relationship with Airtel and Aircel only. Situation like this, coupled with a price tag of INR 60,000 almost for the high-end model, prohibits a middle-class Indian to even consider Apple. Samsung has a huge range and they have Android offerings starting from INR 6,500 to INR 50,000 suiting every budget. No wonder, Samsung has garnered 51% of the smartphone market-share in India while Apple only managed a dismal 2%.

    I would say it's a general misperception.

    I also feel that 2 out of 3 people have an iPhone in their pocket wherein the market share clearly shows that the iPhone is not the top tier.

    The difference is that there is e.g. a multitude of Samsung smartphones wherein only "limited" iPhone versions.
    When you see an iPhone (be it 3G, 4, 4S ...) you know it's Apple right away and while you may recognize the Samsung Galaxy line there are a lot of others you won't identify as being Samsung phones.

    Android phone always. Samsung & HTC are some good choices for Android phones.

    The Android, I'm using now, Samsung is a good choice. It's much cheaper and you can get what you want. And I will consider the Windows phone if I want to change my smartphone.

    HTC One X and living in Sweden.
    Why HTC? Because I'm not an Apple fan boy.
